That's looking stunning. 8)

Quick question, what skewer are you using on the front hub? The only one I've found that will fit though the Pace is a Zero titanium one. Most are too fat! :roll:

What size frame is that Andy?

How do Pace measure frame sizing - e.g. is a 19" from centre BB to top of seat tube?

Andy,

Your attention to detail is superb fella! if the Funk is anything to go by this is going to be another lush build 8)

Pick my R100 up at the weekend, your build is giving me lots of Inspiration.

Cheers
Matt

Humm.....?

I tried Hope & Shimano ones along with a cheapy security jobby. None of the would go through.

Must be a tolerance thing. Is the hub you have the one with the lozenge shaped axle with both QR and bolt fixings?
