Cheers for the info Molds. I definately need to try one but it doesn't sound good. However I do like a shorter cockpit and my extra 2" over you is in my legs so it may be OK.
6'3" is not stupid tall so I can't believe they don't cater for riders that height!
Show me your Pace RC405

Have you tried calling Pace about this? I had some queries about frame geometry and axle-crown lengths before buying my 405. They were really helpful when I called them.

I finally got to try a large Pace today. It was very different from my Commencal Meta 5; It definately wasn't as 'plush' feeling but the acceleration was amazing. Unfortunately as feared the Large wasn't large enough, the saddle to stem cetre was 20mm less than the Meta and although the stem was 20mm longer to compensate I just don't like stems that long.
It's so annoying that Pace don't make a XL! Now what bike should I look at next...
Et Voila! My finished RC405.
Note to anyone buying, you have to have the rear derailleur cable completely covered from mech to lever...
Still looks great in snow white.
You know you can run your rear brake cable under the downtube and BB?
Um yeah, but I just wanted to get riding and the hose isnt long enough to go all the way under the BB - I'd need to get new hose and bleed it again and at the minute I can't be faffed!
The forks need waa- hey more air in them. Shock pump purchase imminent!
Even with a wallowy fork I can't belive how well this bike handles!
anyone got a contact no for Pace please? their website seems to be dead at the minute

OK - I know this post was last replied to a year ago, but it is the only place on the web that I can find that has a load of Pace enthusiasts in the same place!!! I just hope one of you can help me...
Earlier this year I bought an RC405 - I FRELLING LOVE IT!!! You all know why - we all love them for the same reasons. I've kitted it out pretty sweet, well I think so, it fits like a glove and goes like stink. I've taken really careful consideration with the contact patches and have chosen kit that I feel gives me great feedback and comfort (Sunline lock on grips, SDG Bel Air Saddle, Shimano XT Pedals) but my ongoing non starter is what tyres to use...
I currently have 2.1 Bonty Mud X's on (Winter season) and prior to that had 2.2. Bonty XR4 Team Issue's, but they are huge!!! I'm thinking of 2.1 Nobby Nic front and rear for spring and autumn, replacing the rear with a Racing Ralph in summer. Any good? What do you use? I have found the XR4 a great tyre, but it is too big and the downward wishbone on the rear triangle has started to get fouled by muck on the tyre...
What do I wear?!?!?!
I'll upload a pic soon and if anyone wants to know spec, I can post that too.
Please help, I'm all in a tizz!Posted 4 years ago #
Hey guys - I know its a fairly old post but I have a quick question. I have recently bought a Rc405 and it looks like the rear triangle is bent do you agree?
I think its sitting to far to the left. I have set the wheel centre in the QR so that's not the problem. The tyre is not central all the way around but that's weird no?
The distance between the left hand side tyre wall and the tube is small, almost 3mm or less.
Looks a bit odd. Was it new?
I would say its normal mine is not symmetrical
No its not new. I asked Supersonic on BikeRadar and he gave me some good advice.
He said to swap the wheel around (put it in the wrong way) and see if the gap changes. If it went the opposite way then its a dishing problem with the wheel.
The gap did change and so I'm sending it to the boys in the workshop to straighten up.
k-sugden - Is yours running ok then? I have heard about various tyres being too wide and so on. Although I think my nevagals aren't more then 2.5
mine was like that from new,
I've also had my 405 from new, and the seat tube part of the rear triangle is asymmetric, my cinder 2.25 runs pretty close too, so big tyres definitely don't leave much room for manoeuvre!
Ok, thanks for the help guys - Great help as always. I've already sent the wheel to be re-laced and set up straight so if its not better then I know its only £20 for peace of mind.
How much to do you think my pace is worth at the moment.
Dt Swiss XR carbon shock
Rockshox Recon U-turn
Mavic Crossride Wheels + Kenda Nevegal tyres
Avid Juicy 3 with 200mm Alligator rotors (In white)
SLX crank arms
Shimano XT shifter.
Shimano XTR rear Mech
Thomson Elite seatpost
I do not want to sell but its nice to know because I only bought it for £450.
