Nicely build

Is that a Pace fork? The crown looks more generic then the regular Pace.

I had a large black one - and like a proper dope I thought it was carbon until it started lifting and peeling off - so my was a proper Carbon Fibber - mind you I would but it again if I had my time over again even though I now beleive they are made from thermo plastic.

Have to agree - this frame deserves for a lot more than putting there anything lying around...

Looking forward to more pics, i think the Pace fork will suit it well. Have you decided on wheels yet?

still running thru some options:
Used wheels
1. XTR hubs with 517/717,
2. Bontrager Race Lite with Chris King hubs and Ceramic rims,
3. Crossmax Gen 1 and Gen2 V-brakes.

or just custom build with NOS parts..

I just gotten these as a complete set front and rear..

I reckon they are pretty rare to get hold off these days..

I not sure if I should go with these as the rear is 130mm OLD.

Is it okay to squeeze the swingarms a little or would I risk cracking them??

Or should I machined 2x 2.5mm extender to sit over the existing ends and get them to 135mm OLD.


Some suggestions please
