    “we imagined that the finished product would be priced out of most riders budget…………….

    ……….priced at £1899, which is considerably less than we imagined it would cost.”

    Nice bike but I think you’re confusing “most” riders disposable income with the top 1%.

    Is that carbon wrap on those Fox 36’s?

    The pricing puts in in line with an Aluminium alloy Nomad, a whole chunk less than the carbon fibre Nomad…

    Really well priced, considering full alloy FS frames start at around £1,300 (Bird, Commencal) and the Canyon Spectral carbon frameset is £2,250, and the Nukeproof reactor in carbon is £2,500.

    445mm seattube on a medium?…..450mm on a large hope hb130

    Aside from the stupid seatube it looks great.

    Aye, but the medium Pace has almost as much reach as the large Hope, and the wheelbase is closer to the XL Hope than the L. So comparing the two you basically go up one size.

    Do ya really think this was made with the same materials as, say, the Tallboy mentioned here? How could it really be priced so so much less? Anywhere the factory needs to put many mm’s of material, they can easily layer in a big dose of fiberglass, radically altering the cost/weight. Just because it’s black on the outside don’t mean it’s as light, stiff and super strong as a top tier frame. I will quote a famous smart guy…
    Light, strong or cheap. Pick 2, ‘Keith Bontrager’

    @Northwind, I hear ya, but i think what I was trying to say was that I’d personally struggle to get anything more than a 125 dropper on that….i’d be wanting a shorter seatttube of a smaller size which they dont do.

    And i’d also so dusty makes a fair point there as well.

    While it’s cheaper than a Tallboy, it’s not cheap. It’s still an awful lot of money. And the Tallboy price is probably gouging a bit.

    Not denying it’s cheaper than some others, just commenting on the narrative of the article that “most” people could afford a £1900 frame. I ride in Surrey, home of the stereotypical A4 with a carbon 5010 on the roof, and still think that narrative is daft. “most” (modal average) people are riding round the trails on £600 Carrera hardtails!

    @dogbone yes threaded BB 73mm shell!

    @dumbbot the pictures you can see is of the prototype, the production frame will take a 170mm dropper with it slammed into the frame so the seatube looks spot on on the production frame.

    Sophie – any details on tyre clearance in 29er mode, and approx frame weight including shock?

    I gotta agree with the comments on ST length. Yeah, the reach is long in relative terms, so you can look at the medium as being equal to most brand’s large, but that becomes a problem when the smallest size offered is that medium. So the smallest ST is the 445; I’m 5’8″ of average proportions and not every 125mm dropper would actually fit in there for me. So this bike would never make my shortlist (pun intended).

    Pity, cos it looks pretty good & I like Pace as a brand – they’ve been there for the long haul and produced some good products over the years.

    @SSBonty @dustytires frame weight is 2.95kg on the large. The frame is made from one of the industries best – Handlaid full carbon frame with Toray, Uni Directional carbon fibre.
