    What are you after?

    Pace don’t seem to have had any activity on their website for ages. Have they gone bust?
    The online shop is still running but they don’t seem to have much in stock?

    I was just currious to see if they had any new frames out. Always liked the look of Pace frames. The service reports (and the price if I’m honest) put me off in the past.

    I think they’ve been putting all their energy into the Sutton bank project but did mention a carbon 29er prototype was stolen the other day so they are still developing stuff. It’d be a great shame to see such a forward thinking company slowly dissappear

    By coincidence, I’m after some gaiter seals for a set of RC41XCAM forks…

    I thought that the forks bit of Pace became DT swiss a few years back?

    Just out of interest. Why would Pace be putting more energy into building a trail centre than producing products that would generate revenue for the company?

    They’ve got enough money and they love riding?

    Because you don’t need to worry about warranty support for a trail centre

    Because trail centres generate more income for less outgoings

    Because they spent half their lives developing awesome stuff, getting little recognition and want a new challenge

    Because a small company can’t necessary keep pace (no pun intended) with the current wheel size trends and are waiting for it to settle

    Because…

    My local bike shop in Hong Kong has a load of Pace RC129 fillet brazed frames in stock that they are selling off cheap.

    They were made by Colossi cycles in China (run by a Dutch guy and amazing quality. They build for number of big names).

    Colossi built them, and Pace couldn’t pay, so they sold them off cheap locally. Just hearsay, and there are often 2 sides to any story, but make of that what you will……..

    And how much is shipping?

    Doubt if they will ship. The frames work out to just under £250 if I remember right. Shipping would probably be prohibitive, plus you would have to pay the import tax and duty.

    I was over Dalby Wednesday last week and yes they did have a prototype carbon 29er nicked out of the bike shop there. Offices didn’t look open but the I could hear noise coming from the suspension servicing bit. Nice looking bikes but I can’t say I’d ever buy one.

    Pace welched on the order as the frame wasnt selling well?

    Why else would you cancel an order

    Maybe the OEM just spat out a few extra frames? Who knows?

    That Tim at Fork English is a really nice bloke. Incredibly helpful & knows Pace forks probably better than Pace do. 😕

    Had the Pace 305 Ht frame a few years ago… It was an Awsome ride, but rthe DT Swiss forks were still Crap…. 2 of us had Major problems with the carbon forks….Pace DID NOTHING……said it was “acceptable wear”
    Mine, the annodized stanchon wore off completly after 6 months, and after having to pay for a “service”, the magnesium drop out came adrift!….

    Wont be going back there!.

    Because the real brains behind the product side of things got hoofed out, along with others a while back? Might be true, might not be true but is what I was told.
