BIKE BRAND OF THE YEAR - BIKE BIZ FINALIST. 

Pace are delighted to announce that we have been shortlisted to be in the top 6 brands to win the award for 'Best Bike Brand of the Year' with Bike Biz. 

For a small brand like Pace, this is an absolute win in itself to be a finalist against some of the biggest brands in the World. Imagine if we actually win it?! It won't just make our year, it would make the past 34 years we have been in the industry even more rewarding.

Do we deserve to win? We'll let you decide on that but here's an insight into what we're about here at Pace:

Pace is a family run business which has been manufacturing bikes for over 30 years. Starting out in a backstreet basement in Bradford, original founders Adrian Carter and Duncan Macdonald designed The World's first square tubed bicycle and downhill bike. Pace play a crucial part of mountain biking history with our innovative designs that are still fresh over 30 years later.

Our original RC100 bike with its unique custom drawn externally machined square section aluminium frame, Bullseye fixed arm cranks, direct fit Magura hydraulic brakes, integrated stem steerer and the first threadless headset was truly revolutionary putting UK bike design on the global map since 1987.

Over the years, Pace have added carbon fibre legged grease ported suspension forks and ground-breaking triple crown DH specific forks. Our asymmetric chain stay, bolt through axle suspension frames were years ahead of the curve and our patented hollow single piece carbon fibre fork sliders have never been matched since.

But we haven’t stopped there.

Pace have also spent the past 2 decades helping to make North Yorkshire a cycling destination in partnership with Forestry Commission and the North York Moors National Parks setting up two independent cycling stores (Sutton Bank Bikes and Dalby Bike Barn) and played a huge part in trail development within North Yorkshire.

We also run mountain bike events just like we did over 20 years ago and also now organise a famous kids mountain bike time trial in the UK, with over 150 children riding at Sutton Bank Bikes, helping to encourage the next generation of riders finding fun outdoors. 

Pace is still an independent Bike Brand and very much a family business with Adrian still designing all the Pace models with his daughter, Sophie helping to drive pace into a new generation and Josh who has worked for us since he came for work experience 20 years ago.

We're a brand for riders.

We're a brand ran by riders. 

We're small but mighty.

And we're back in full circle designing state of the art frames, unique Free floating suspension and adjustable dropout systems on our bikes, matched with our new electric bike, a little fish in a big pond Pace continues to help carve the trail in the bike industry since 1987.

Thankyou, it really means the World to us all at Pace.
