Spotted: Fuquay Retrobike Collection

by 3

This year’s York Cycle Rally and Festival included a retrobike show, alongside all the stalls, grass track racing, and more. A day out was on the cards, and I clocked a little cluster of Fuquays on display. Given it’s only a couple of weeks since their maker, Greg Fuquay, died,…

I came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. I like all bikes, but especially unusual ones. More than bikes, I like what bikes do. I think that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments. I try to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.

    I live a 10 minute walk away so went to have a look – the retrobike part was the best bit, some stunning bikes. The pristine white Kona Kilauea, the slightly more modern Pace (RC200?) of the various Paces (Paceii?) and the stunning Yeti FRO or whatever it was were my pics. I’d be lying if I said I hadn’t been on retrobike this morning having a look for something pretty to hang on my wall/stand in the corner of my living room.

    Lovely bikes, but It makes me sad that they aren’t ridden anymore.

    Paces (Paceii?)

    just ‘Paces’. A bit like ‘Walkmans’ or ‘Maple Leafs’ I suppose as it is a brand and a contraction of a thing (Pace bikes).

    Hey, it’s ‘viruses’ too these days!

    after some RC-35 Pace forks I wasn’t tempted by an RC-200 bike. Though they did look interesting with the external butting/machining.

    interesting that these things, especially the Fuquays, are effectively museum pieces.
