Noice, Very Noice :wink:

One question, why are the front brakes on back to front? I know the clamps can be rotated but surely the advantage is to have them rear facing?

The only thing I can fault though on an otherwise flawless machine! 8)

Oooh, what a beauty!
From the Porcipaws to the Ti Glide and M952 - lush!

Good to see someone using the Spec Sheet too.

Thats great. Not a thing there that I'd change if it was mine. Scrummy!

Thank you for the compliments. :D

Stick Legs - this incarnation of the RC38 does not have the facility to rear mount the brakes, it does therefore go against the Pace logic. Just to double check I have just flicked through the manual and no mention; I also trust the mechanic who did the original build - a certain Andy Kyffin, Steve Peat's spanner man.

That is nice.

I like the lines from the top tube to the stem and finally to the bar ends.. it flows... whether intentional or not! :)

Pretty darn cool.
