RC100 Timeline

First Production Model 1989?

Image

Pace added Grease ports and dropped the plastic shoulder carrier (Did Kona borrow the grease ports idea for their 1992 black\pink splatter Explosif?)

Image

Plastic Chain Device

Image

By frame Number 151 (might be earlier?) Pace dropped the plastic chain device but still using a banded front mech (speed up production?).

Notice the lack of holes in the lower bridge.

Image

Image

By Frame number 241 (again it could of been earlier) Pace had switched to a fixed front mech

Image

Regarding the fixed front mech; this makes me laugh; Dave Wegale (DW link Fame) & Chris Cocalis (ex Titus owner) are bringing out a new bikes with fixed front mech’s and they claim “these are some of the biggest innovations to ever hit the world of mountain biking “ .

Dudes Pace did these 18 years ago!!

The finished Article – RC100-S

All made possible by your Thread :D

I have a very very limited knowledge of RC200’s, also lure isn’t that great for me.

Nice!

I'm thinking that Yellow RC100 T may have been one of the very original bikes that Pace first built, 24" wheels was mentioned somewhere in the article with Adrian Carter on the front...

(Nothing wrong with RC200's mate!!! :D )

bless - you really do treat that RC100t as one of the family don't you? Bringing it inside to join the family for Christmas.

Guess I'm jealous, my 200 has to stay in the shed all year round
