One day PACE will make a freeride DH fork and we can all be happy. I’d kill for a PACE built Totem-esque fork.
and yes, if Pace made a 170-180mm fork I’d be in that queue!!
Didn’t think Pace made forks anymore- and I don’t think that their reliability was being praised to the heavens when they did.
Many moons ago, Pace made the DH specific RC 150 Monster fork.
It was ****, you would spend more time servicing it than riding on it.
I used to work at a Pace status one dealer. We used to call Pace forks “homing forks” as we were always sending forks back to Pace for problems that Pace had, apparently, never encountered before, even though we were constantly sending forks back every week with the same issues!
I am now on my 3rd pace fork in 7 years (RC36 Evo III, RC36 stealth, RC40 ph1), and each has only been changed due to upgrades. All were 2nd hand, each was only serviced once a year, used regularly, and were working when done. RC40’s are 3yr old and working flawlessly, cant find another 1.8kg 130mm adjustable coil fork thats as good either.
Totally gutted with the whole DT thing, unless they pull there finger out and cut prices they are lost. Should have been an institution like Hope, but seem to be struggling, just hoping they have more decent frames planned instead, part carbon RC303 would be lush
