I think the creams where a 1 off runPosted 9 years ago
Got told cream is back in stock in mid septPosted 9 years ago
What size are you collecting? They have no xl demo for mePosted 9 years ago
A couple of mates rode Sophie Carter’s RC129 in single speed guise when we were over at Dalby. They were both impressed with the way it smooths out the trail.
Sophie showed us some unofficial Dalby trails the following day and it looked fast and smooth (that is more likely just the fact she was pretty much born on a bike though).Posted 9 years ago
cream xl for me bear. your welcome to have a spin but it will have an unusual build.Posted 9 years ago
May take you up on that offer to check it for size. Are you down near Thirsk?Posted 9 years ago
Yeah just outside thirk, So will be out on the moors on it a bit, planning to put a fat front tyre on it, but also have plenty of parts to build it conventionally.Posted 9 years ago
I’m up in Newcastle, but folks live in Pickering, so I come down the A19 pretty often. Could pop in one day to check the size if that would be ok.Posted 9 years ago
no probs, email is in profile, will have it a week on sunday, 😆Posted 9 years ago
How’s the build going Shep?Posted 9 years ago
Going well, rides really well with fat tyre. But have ordered a Niner fork for up front.
You’ll need a mega long hose for the rear brake though.Posted 9 years ago
I’ve got mine now 😀Posted 9 years ago
Finish of the frame is fantastic, just need to build the wheels then will get the pic’s up.
Looking forward to pics.
have you gone for carbon Niner forks Shep?Posted 9 years ago
Finaly got it built just in time for D2D.
Very impressed with how it rides, and how fast it is.
Massive thanks to all at Pace Cycles for helping me out.

rode mine for the first time at the weekend
not a light steel frame, but the swift and nimble ride makes up for itPosted 9 years ago
I like that white one a lot. How did you find the sizing? The really short seat tube put me off a bit, looks like you are both running massive seat posts to make up for it?Posted 9 years ago
yeah, it’s a ‘low slung’ frame, that’s for sure 🙂
didn’t pay much attention to the seat-tube TBH, i look at the top-tube length to fit, but a plus side to such a small frame is that all the weight is between the wheels which seems to work well on a 29er, keeping the bike less top-heavy and more chuckable between the legsPosted 9 years ago
(Sorry about the thumb – unfamiliar camera!)
Not sure if anyone is still watching this thread but just in case here is my two week old RC129. I loved the ride of the singlespeed demo at Pace and was amazed at how it flew around the bottom half of Dalby’s red route so I decided to go for the same. Really pleased with the build (and thanks to everyone off here who’s contributed in buying and selling) and the ride. In terms of fit I’m just under six foot and have the medium which feels great. For a ‘big’ bike it feels compact but not cramped and everything falls just where I want it. Handling is unbelievably fast by any standards not just for a 29er.
Great Bike (thanks Adrian…) 😀Posted 9 years ago
That looks VERY nice in black Andy, no disrespect to the other bikes on this thread, I’d have them all, but Anndys looks best.Posted 9 years ago
Thanks Ben. Its a beautifully crafted frame and I think the black shows the incredibly smooth welds to good effect. Pace have produced an absolute gem.Posted 9 years ago
