    Pace forkage...

    ....no ride report yet but it sure does look good. Preliminary neighborhood testing indicates an increase in compliance and a decrease in weight:-)

    I've heard lots of talk about the new Pace fork. I'm a little confused though. Some people are scared of Ti forks because of the flex. Does the carbon Pace flex less? Isn't anyone scared of breaking the carbon?

    I've ridden this frame with a KM fork and a Walt. The KM is 468mm 43mm rake and the Walt is 470mm 40mm rake.

    I'll post a ride report after I have a few hundred miles on it.

    Damn that's hot. The Bontrager fork I'm waiting for will be a distant #2 in hotness if nothing else. Look forward to the ride report.

    Increase in Headangle

    Donkey, Let us know how the increase(steeper) head-angle works out. I would love the fork, but not at the risk changing my handling.

    I doubt I'll ever notice it. It's only 5mm shorter....not enough to dramatically change the head angle.

    5mm

    I agree, I doubt you will notice 5mm difference. Nice Fork. I am waiting for my LBS to call me back when they get one in. I am second in line, so unless they get 2 or the first guy turns it down, I won't have it this week.

    Sweet indeed!
    New forks are all the rage...
    My new Walt-Lite fork should be in my hands by Friday.

    Looking forward to your ride report; and my ride experience.
    Stay tuned (uh, pun not intended).

    Am I seeing things or is that a brake noodle you have going into the left (front) brake lever?

    Good eye...it most certainly is! I use a brake noodle to clean up the routing a bit and create a nice clean line down the fork leg.

    Really nice looking. clean lines.. I'd love to see that on the moots.

    Have you posted that bike before? I don't remember seeing it.

    Also.. something about those big S-works logos on the tires that make a bike look fast!!!
    MTBR is serious stuff.
