The replacement for the 305, this is the new 325. Tweaked geometry, slidy replaceable dropouts, 160mm forks and set up either for a Hammerschmidt or single chainring. Blurred close up of that bendy top tube Another new bike, Pace's 204, a 4" travel trail bike with replaceable slidy dropouts, relaxed geometry and love-or-hate looks Those dropouts in close up New DT Swiss shock on the Pace 405, otherwise that remains unchanged. Much better looking than the 204, this is Pace's gorgeous 104 rigid singlespeed. Lovely swoopy rear stays, huge mud clearance. Chromed chainstay, curvy steel, replaceable dropouts. New XM (Cross Mountain) fork from DT Swiss, magnesium bridge. Light and stiff. If you have to ask, you can't afford it! DT Swiss all-singing ultralight XC race fork, full carbon (inc steerer), magnesium dropouts. Pace's brand new BB, fully sealed inside and out with externally accessible grease port. Even comes with the tool to regrease it. The obligatory round-town fixed gear, the 42:16 Emily from Pace and the T-shirt to match the bike! Related posts Can’t Make iceBike?

OK 325 and 104 then. Let’s be a realist! IanMunro October 8, 2009 at 8:28 pm Any more info on Emily’s geometry please? 🙂 Trailrider Jim October 8, 2009 at 8:41 pm Does Emily come with slideouts too? Ed-O October 8, 2009 at 9:28 pm Any ideas on price for the bb? Dirtynap October 8, 2009 at 9:56 pm So you took the time to take a pic of a rather nice lady and you managed to take that picture when she had her eye’s closed and then you put it on the web. Bet emily is well please with you guy’s!!! Loving the 325 with a schmidt. crazy-legs October 8, 2009 at 10:06 pm She was fine with it, came by our stand and had a look at the pics. The 104 SS is really lovely. Oh and the XC race fork is over £1000… nickc October 8, 2009 at 10:06 pm The market for spectacularly ugly hardtails is pretty small, I reckon Pace have managed to fill that niche with the 325. Mackem October 8, 2009 at 10:06 pm Are PACE dropouts still made of Primula? speaker2animals October 9, 2009 at 12:16 am I reckon new 325 is ‘prettier’ than 303/305. But not by much. I’d still go for one though. But only if Emily gets chucked in too! kelvin October 9, 2009 at 1:20 am What’s going on with the seat tube on that 325? I need to going see it with real eyes at the weekend I think. Dirtynap October 9, 2009 at 1:29 am Hang on pace is based in a one horse village in yorkshire meaning apart from the bikes she must be the only thing worth … I tried to ride that dam horse and ended up with a pace and no luck with the ladies. Me thinks the pace stand will be getting many vistors looking at the 42:16, the push bike obviously not the t-shirt. I am starting to like the 104 especially the chainstays they look sweet, not a fan of the baby blue though. Brother_Will October 9, 2009 at 8:12 am i hate pace for releasing so many nice things i cant afford 🙁 rkk01 October 9, 2009 at 8:42 am 325 and 204 are hideous. At least the RC303 / 305 have a functional aesthetic that matches their performance. juan October 9, 2009 at 9:15 am any idea of the price of the 42:16 (the bike not the girl) Swiftacular October 9, 2009 at 9:16 am I think that 325 just killed the Pace mystique for me, guess i’ll never get rid of the 303 now. tragically1969 October 9, 2009 at 10:02 am Pace 325, No, No, No, No………………….. Or in STW speak: FAIL redted October 9, 2009 at 10:29 am 104 looks lush,especially with the smooth welds and chrome stay. Does this mean that their rigid carbon fork may make a comeback after all, or is it a leftover? The BB could be interesting too if it keeps the UK winter out. Nice that the tool for re-greasing is included too. bowglie October 9, 2009 at 10:32 am IMO, the 204 looks a much better in the flesh, as does Emily…er, so to speak..oops! (fancy posting a ‘half-blink’ picture…tut tut;) ridethelakes October 9, 2009 at 11:20 am Love the chromed chainstays, can see that catching on. oomidamon October 9, 2009 at 11:22 am Bring back square tubes!! eddyesi October 9, 2009 at 12:46 pm 325 may grow on me, but would be more bike than i need, and still 3 ring man. Shame they dont offer a lighter weight Scandium 305 replacement too for 130mm forks, My 303 would be perfect if it was 1 lb lighter and a little softer on the back end. Any news on the weight for that 104, definately a good on-one/Cotic alternative Chrome stay is well cool, how about a pimp fully chrome option 🙂 tthew October 9, 2009 at 6:26 pm Does the 204 have the main suspension pivot around the BB so it can be run singlespeed? Otherwise, what exactly is the point of a sliding dropout on a 4″ travel bike? toxicsoks October 9, 2009 at 9:35 pm 104 please! :¬) delusional October 10, 2009 at 5:26 pm “104 looks lush,especially with the smooth welds and chrome stay. Does this mean that their rigid carbon fork may make a comeback after all, or is it a leftover?” I agree, the 104 looked absolutely gorgeous in the metal. I was also wondering about the return of the RC31, there seemed to be a couple of them on Pace’ stand, but foolishly I didn’t actually think to ask someone if they were re-releasing it! crocodilian October 11, 2009 at 9:43 am Juan; the 42:16 is about £500 I think…I spent a lot of time looking at that one when I was there yesterday. Does anyone know when it will be available to buy? crocodilian October 11, 2009 at 9:46 am Sorry, it’s £495, frame only… http://www.bikeradar.com/news/article/cycle-show-09-paces-new-mountain-bike-frames-23549 kelvin October 12, 2009 at 8:24 pm What’s going on with the seat tube on that 325? I need to going see it with real eyes at the weekend I think. It was just the photo, seat tube looks entirely normal in the metal. Any news on the weight for that 104 On the stand it said 5lbs.
