Hi, Chris. I'm Lewis and I'm a shopaholic, too!

I keep buying frames, I just can't help myself. I buy one but then I'm just chasing that first high of the potential build. There's used Wiggle boxes strewn throughout my house like tin foil in a smack house.

luckily, I've not spent a penny either here or on ebay.... but that might be cos my bladder's empty.

Hi. I am DBMTB and I wish you shopaholics would frequent my LBS instead!

I also own 3 Paces and am beginning to wonder... do any Pace owners only one one Pace anymore?

def a xr, got some new side fade stickers to add yet
engines still a crossflow, the first lump was a nice spec, 1700, big valve head etc, that buggered up so fitted a seemingly standard lump but we'll see, previous owner reckoned it was a screamer lol

tempted with a zetec if this fails next season, turbo route was hard to say no to but i want reliability on track without det issues and lag, the management can cost lots too, and that means the pace will never get built lol :wink:
