I am about to embark on a build.
Pace RC200, a very nice frame is coming my way.
Obviously most of the finishing kit is pre-ordained by the rules of Pace but I am struggling to decide on a groupset...
M900 XTR is beautiful and a full M900 groupset is my preference but is hella-expensive these days.
M730 XT is seriously iconic and works well, I could sex it up a bit with some nice cranks and hubs for probably less than the price of the XTR.
I feel that the XT route with Hope hubs and Middleburn cranks is the more BITD build than full M900.
Somerset, like 'Heartbeat' with newer cars!
