Strengths:    A simple, aggressive xc bike that delivers fun by the bucket-load. I have had mine since 2007 and still love it like day one. Big days in the Yorkshire Dales might see me on a fuss sus, but three and four hour rides are comfy and fun. This bike loves speed, encourages spirited riding and you cannot help grinning.

Weaknesses:    This bike will seriously affect your (mental and physical) health! You will end up writing cheques that your body cannot cash. You will not be able to stop and look at the scenery, you will not be able to 'pootle', you will hurt after rides.

Bottom Line:   
It is a Siren that cyclists should avoid. If it were a chemical, it would a Class A drug and banned across the world. One whiff and you're hooked. There is no I-can-stop-any-time with this bike!

Buy one and rediscover why you love cycling. Lose the Mistress and have way more fun by yourself and other consenting adults.

I bought this as a temporary frame coz i sold my FTM for a Pivot Mach 5 (which i hope arrives really soon!) but now I decided to keep the Pace as my HT bike!:) buy this frame you will

Strengths:    Amazing singletrack ability, good climber, amazing ability to suck up trail bumps etc despite solid feel.

Weaknesses:    only thing I can say is that it makes me think I ride better than I actually can! and you might have to wait a couple of weeks after getting your anme on the ever growing list of buyers - yes it's that good.

Bottom Line:   
Target buyer would be a long day out rider who wants a 5" fork up front.

If you want a ride all day hard-tail that absolutely rips on the trail then this is the one.
