Frame back, lovely finish, red parts back, lovely finish for the most part, one totally shite piece though (can you guess which from the pics?), but all in all quite happy. Sorry about the pics, low light and crappy camera = Low light crappy pics. Waiting on a few pieces, chain, gear outers, Geoff is busy designing/making the more modern head badge, but have the rest of the stuff, it's just a waiting game. Weighs 17.5 lbs as is, but then it does still have a lot of heavy stuff to add.

Edit - LBS forgot to put a bottle boss in the rear monostay, D'oh, only just noticed when loading the pics.

Cheers...Nick

May get it finished this week if I get the head badge through. Had to get a few things filed off the brake levers and some low head bolts, otherwise they would have been totally impractical to use with thumbies. As it is, the are now only slightly impractical to use :D

Cheers...Nick

Well, all bar the head badge :wink: . Some pics in the minimal sunshine we will be having for the rest of the year. As with my other PACE, I chose the colour scheme first, and worried about the parts later :oops: . It was this or GREEN, and this won.
It is also in a size I am able to ride being 6-3".
As per usual, there have been many things that I didn't think of before committing, but you live & learn.
Can't be bothered with specs, but most of you recognise the parts anyway. It weighs 22 lbs.
Thanks again to any members I bought parts from, and now on the the Raleigh :twisted:
I'll try to get some arty farty countryside shots if the weather allows.

Cheers...Nick

are the brakes c2's? if so could you run the levers upside down? obviously have to swap the levers over and re bleed, but may work better with the thumbies.

Awesome build! Love the narrow z-max's. I really need to get a thread up about my RC200, this has inspired me. :D
