So it'd not the biggest collection in the world, or all NOS, but it's mine and I love it (and some if it is quite rare too). :D

If you're wondering, the STX crank arm is sporting a Pace spider that makes a for a rather nice light weight crank and the tatty black bits are a Hope mount for a C2 disk caliper 8)

I've only been looking for a disk mount for about six years on and off! :shock: this one arrived yesterday...............with the fork

.........................all for £31.00 :oops: :D

(Oh, and OK, so the hub is a Hope, but it is shiny!! :shock: )

Love pace forks.
Got some RC35 AB's on my team marin (owned since new)
96 ish RC36's currently on my Orange O2
98 Proclass (like yours) with the sexy gold legs. Were on the orange but swapped out as i liked the look of the other ones on it better. Currently to be found in the living room acting as a public display of pace porn.

I've been busy working on my RC35 MXCs with the help of Tim (justbackdated) of Fork English fame, cheers Tim. :wink:

Image

They now have new elastomers, black anodised crown end caps & braces, canti mounts and a stage 2 titanium kit.

Image

I also have a lovely matching Pace suspension hub, again from Tim; along with some NOS chainrings to go with the STX adapter I have.

Image

I know this gets said a lot, but Tim is a star when it comes to anything Pacey, I really can't recommend the guy enough; cheers dude. :D

All these lovelies are destined for my Clockwork frame which has now been resprayed (satin black in the end). Just need some new decals for the frame & forks and a middle ring now. Well, along with all the other bits I don't have yet!

I feel like a big kid. 8)
