Yep, look like early (1st gen) RC30's to me with reynolds 531 legs, quite a score with the 1 1/4 steerer too :)

Excellent, cheers.

I was surprised just how light they were 8) when I eventually got the headset undone. I believe you can get replacement steerer tubes, or have I heard wrong??

See justbackdated (Tim) on here for all your Pace needs. Just had a quote for an RC35 refurb inc steerer and the price seemed very reasonable. :wink:

So I had a go at removing the BB today (Shimano) and I can't dislodge it for love or money. Am I missing something? Should I be trying to undo one side first? or is just playing hard to get, due to the cold weather?

Cheers for any help. . . .

If the BB is a shimano cartridge, the non driveside needs to come out first mate.......

Cheers for that,

It's been a while since I did one, but something in the back of mind reminded me it was a reverse thread, I just couldn't remeber if I had to do one side first or not, so cheers to Fenton for that one. :)
Thanks
Steve
