I'd always wanted a PACE bike built around one of their frames, but the cost put me off. £600 for a frame? used to see the RC200's out and about, wanted one badly. It was almost fifteen years before I got my PACE RC303 - spotted the frame at half price in a sale. I built it up around SLX gear and it is a fantastic bike; my go to machine. I've used it all over; Welsh trail centres; up and down Snowdon; day rides in places as diverse as Belgium through to Devon. I've no need to change it at all, but did spot this intriguing sale over at PACE. If you've got the cash and fancy a stunning hardtail, go for it.
