Thats a lovely pace,

just don't go sticking anodised parts on it and ruining it, keep it simple

:wink:

Very nice as Pace should be! I trust you have a Ringle bottle cage for it?

Fatface - Mint's Pace was green, with Middleburn cranks.

I built it up from a bare frame to this spec, no colour was part of the plan, see the other bikes in my gallery to see the clean simple style I favour!

I do have a black ringle but I use a Camel bak because bikes look cleaner with no cages! What a tart I am :lol:

Oh, Mint's early pace was a grey RC200 (F1) with purple crowned RC35's, salsa stem, XT rear mech, Mavic bolt on front, RM17 rims (silver) and XT thumbies. This is not as sad as it seems, Mint's bike was (and always has been) Jo Burt's spec and colour!

Sorry, should have made that clearer, Mint and Jo ride the same bikes, indeed Mint had a green one at one point, so did Jo!

Very 8) indeed Pete - nice to see those RC's are having a fun time on more than one bike!

Yeah, I decided to keep the Orange rigid, it was good on the RC's but so much more lively on rigid forks!
