Gagging to get this on here..she's finally ready..used to be yellow...now pink after seeing Liam Killens Pink Specialized he used to win the Sea Otter Classic last year...what do you guys think?

Frame: 1992 Pace RC200 F1 19"
Fork: Pace RC30 (RC35's in a box by the bed)
Headset: Mavic MTB 1"
Stem: Pace 1" stem/steerer
Handlebar: X-Lite Ti
Grips: Rubber no name
Brakes: Avid Arch Rival (sorry I know they're not retro)
Cantilever cable hangers: As above
Brake Levers: Carbon Works Dia Compe SS7 replacements
Shifters: Deore XT II
Front Derailleur: Mavic MTB
Rear Derailleur: Shimano Dura Ace 10 Speed
Cassette: Shimano Deore XT
Chain: Sedis
Cranks: Kooka 170cm
Chainrings: Shimano XTR 1993
Bottom Bracket: Shimano Deore LX
Cables: JagWire Pink (money goes to beast cancer so thought that was ideal!)
Pedals: Time ATAC Carbon
Quick Releases: Ringle Ti Stix in Pewter
Rims: Mavic 517's
Hubs: Hope Ti
Tyres: Continental Cross Country 1.5" (Fave mud tyre)

It's a great ride, loving going back to fully rigid, but have my RC35's to hand when I get a little bored of the front end...thinking it's an F1 frameset as it has the cantilever cable hanger spot at the back for the gizmo they used to use prior to the welded cable stop...only thing this frameset doesn't have is the greaseport on the headtube...

Cheers guys!

Rich

That looks fantastic!

Loving the white saddle, if it was my bike I'd probably have white cable outers but looking good with the pink too :D

Holy moley!

Agree with the first impression of "oh my word what has he done?", but it kinda grows on you and looks rather good.

Well done sir!
