can't you just move that stack of spacers to under the stem?

Would avoid a potentially nasty 'rib cage meets blunt piece of metal in a hurry' scenario..............

or even worse, your nadgers :shock: :shock:

I am only running the spacers(1 1/8" Hope item) above the stem until i can get some 1" spacers,should be here tomorrow.Hopefully this will mean i can keep the Pace stem,as i would hate to replace it with something else.Just received a Thomson Elite seatpost today,fitted it just now,along with the XT front mech.Not retro,but i want stuff i can rely on as well.Thanks for the kind comments,and the colour is dark green,not black.I thought it was black when i bought it but pleasantly suprised when i opened the box. :D :D

Very nice looking bike, but it is not a F8 by the looks of it. Mine is a F7 and the frame you have predates that.

doesn't look like an f8 - f8s were red, silver, pewter or smokey grey/blue

the frame number will tell you which f number it is, see the thread mentioned above for more details

stickers are those copies of fleabay (and in the wrong place) the rc200f8 bit should be on the seat tube next to the big pace sticker.

good looker, welcome to the 'club'
