Pace 325.5 frame

BikeRadar verdict

90.0 out of 5 stars

"Light and comfortable for epics, but fully rigged for the radical too"

Monday, June 14, 2010 9.00am By

Pace’s 305 frame was one of our favourite hardcore hardtails and this updated version is even better. It’s now configured for forks up to 150mm (5.9in) and the curved top tube gives more crotch clearance, but otherwise the geometry is unchanged.

The extra cable guides and ISCG tabs are ready for Truvativ's HammerSchmidt crankset and there’s an optional anti-chainsuck plate. Neat Slideout dropouts simplify singlespeeding or adjusting rear geometry.

There’s a cable guide for light batteries, Crud Catcher mounts and you even get a brass serial number plate. Careful tube selection means that this frame is sharp steering and responsive, but quality like this does come at a high price.
