    Who's Still Riding the Ace XC?

    I still have mine, I bought the frame only in 2009 and built the bike up from a mix of new and take-offs from my MTB. The only real issue I've had is breaking the pivot bolt closest to the bottom bracket, Pricepoint sent me a new one as soon as I got a hold of the right person. There has also been a popping sound that'll manifest when I'm climbing, it eventually turned into a popping/creaking combo. Instead of spending the big bucks and replacing the pivot bearings, I carefully removed the dust seals and packed the dry bearings full of grease. That seemed to have remedied the problem, for now. I've been very happy with the Ace, I looked at other bikes from time to time, but the Ace continues to suit me just fine. Maybe some new wheels are in order...

    Still got mine. Still enjoy riding it, although lately I've been riding my hard tail a bit more.

    I'm still riding mine. Just bought all new bearings for replacement in the next few weeks.

    Older thread... but I dusted my Ace off earlier in the summer. Rebuilt the Monarch 3.3 and Tora 318... Slapped on a new 29" wide bar and shorter stem. It's too freakin hot to ride much in Lower Alabama right now, but I sneak a short trip in now and again either in the morning or late afternoon. Just bought a new set of tires and a headlight in anticipation of getting more miles in this Fall. Still a great ride for to type of riding I do.
