PACE & COVID19

Keeping you up-to Pace with Covid19.

Despite Government guidelines allowing bicycle shops to remain open we personally feel like this is not the right thing to do.  Dalby Bike Barn, Sutton Bank Bikes and Pace shops will be closed from 24.03.2020 until further notice. We will however be still taking online orders as best we can with minimal staff. We have been reassured from Parcelforce that they are still operating for all deliveries and collections. 

We care about our staff and customers massively and therefore we're all working from separate locations. All calls are diverted but please be patient, if we are on a call to a customer you maybe diverted to voicemail. Please leave a message and we will get back intouch.  One staff member will be in the shop at a time, all other staff are working from home. 

Collections and Deliveries:

Any collections or deliveries are to be left on our door step and to notify the member of staff working that day. 

Sales and Shipping:

As it stands all services are open and available.  As of 24.03.2020 Couriers within the UK are still shipping without restriction, and are now using alternative measures to signing for items like taking photos. What we do recommend is making sure you wash your hands as soon as you receive your delivery.  You are not allowed to collect your orders from Pace directly from HQ so please respect this and be fair to our staff and families. This may change but we will monitor the situation and adjust accordingly.

As mentioned above staff regularly wash their hands already and personal hygiene is always the priority…But just to remind you - Covid19 only lasts a maximum of 12 hours outside a host meaning even if there was some small chance of infection at our end, it would be gone by the time your product reaches you.
We do recommend however washing your hands as soon as you sign for your delivery and also immediately after you have finished handling the cardboard packaging that your Pace arrives in.

Demo Days:

We are not allowing any demo rides until further notice.  

We couldn't be into a better sport than cycling if we need to stay healthy and keep away from the crowds. Keep healthy, be responsible and more importantly keep your head clear with riding your bike. 
In the mean time read this article from Singletrack Magazine on how to ride during Covid19. 

Cheers,
Sophie Flanagan
Managing Director – Pace Cycles.

PACE & COVID19

Keeping you up-to Pace with Covid19.

Business as normal here at Pace – with just a bit more hand washing and bumping elbows instead of knucks. At Pace HQ we’re small enough that communication is easy and all staff know that if they are concerned about how they feel then they should stay at home.

As you can imagine we have a very busy workshop and already have extensive hand washing facilities already which are used regularly.
With regards to our service to you - we are still open as normal and most of us work from home so it shouldn't interrupt our service to you, we are however the busiest we have ever been so you may experience a small delay in our replies on email. You can however chat all things Pace by calling 01751 477737, or email sophie@pacecycles.com.

Sales and Shipping:

As it stand the only place in the World we can't ship to is Italy. All services are open and available for all our products as of today including suspension/bike servicing. As of 18.03.2020 Couriers within the UK are still shipping without restriction, and most are now putting place alternative measures to signing for items like taking photos. What we do recommend is making sure you wash your hands as soon as you receive for your delivery. You can also collect your frame/parts from Pace directly but we do ask you to not shake hands with staff and wash your hands thoroughly before and after your visit, please keep your distance. This may change but we will monitor the situation and adjust accordingly.

As mentioned above staff regularly wash their hands already and personal hygiene is always the priority…But just to remind you - Covid19 only lasts a maximum of 12 hours outside a host meaning even if there was some small chance of infection at our end, it would be gone by the time your product reaches you.
We do recommend however washing your hands as soon as you sign for your delivery and also immediately after you have finished handling the cardboard packaging that your Pace arrives in.

With regards to collection from Pace please be fair to our staff and our families - if you are feeling even vaguely off - please don't visit or demo. What we cannot stress enough is that if you feel even remotely off colour, do not attend. If you know of someone in self isolation, do not attend. If you are in isolation we can send you your frame directly and building it yourself can give you something enjoyable to do.

Demo Days:

Whilst we consider it safe to do so, we will continue to run demo days and also demos at the shops. Demo days are not a large gathering and people have designated time slots to try a Pace, therefore there isn’t a huge gathering at once and with all demos been outdoors minimises the risks.

When booking your demo we will no longer be using sign on sheets on the day. When you book on the demo, we will email you with the information we require (emergency contacts and the like) so you effectively sign in online. This means we will not be able to accept walk-ins on the day you will have to book in advance. If you haven't provided this information prior to the demo, you won't be allowed to ride.

Please bring your own tools we will not be able to share them and remember to bring your own pedals. We will have hand sanitiser around but please wear gloves when handling the bikes.

At the moment these events are still going ahead, but obviously we will adjust as things change. We will be in touch if you are booked on if we need to rearrange for any reason.

If you are feeling even vaguely off - please don't attend. What we cannot stress enough is that if you feel even remotely off colour, do not attend. If you know of someone in self isolation, do not attend.

We couldn't be into a better sport than cycling if we need to stay healthy and keep away from the crowds. Keep healthy, be responsible and more importantly keep your head clear with riding your bike.

THE WAIT WAS WORTH IT 

INTRODUCING THE COMPLETE RC295 BIKE. 

Our new all-carbon RC295 represents three years of development and thirty years of carbon manufacturing heritage. It's suspension system is a refined version of our unique Pace Freefloater design first released in 2003, housed in a carbon fibre frame backed up by our experience of building thousands of carbon fibre suspension forks.

The RC295 geometry is highly evolved to compliment its 29" wheels with a low centre of gravity, roomy cockpit, steep seattube and slack headtube angle. Finish and attention to detail is typically Pace with raw carbon and easy-care deep gloss overcoat, carbon BB protector and a real world build kit designed for those who ride often and hard and appreciate tough and durable components.

JUNE

WHAT THE CUSTOMERS SAY: MENNO BOON. 

EXCEPT, IT DIDN'T. 

To be fair, I wasn’t planning on buying a new frame. I was perfectly happy with my previous bike that, as the name implies, would be able to withstand a nucleair impact. Except, it didn’t. I was practicing for an Enduro in Belgium when I discovered a cracked seat tube. The bike wasn’t that old, so, off to my dealer to claim warranty. No problem, it was a warranty case and a new bike would be shipped to me as soon as possible.

Except, it didn’t.

The frame never arrived. I waited for about seven months. I bought a simple gravel bike to overcome this hiatus in MTB-ownership, and it was a lot of fun. Still is. I had a lot of contact with both dealer and manufacturer, but regardless of all the promising words and plausible explanations, still no frame. In the end, the dealer bought my frame (that I never even got to see) so I could move on.

In fact, I already had. Somewhere in the back of my mind, something told me this was the chance of converting to steel. I’d seen steel bikes around me from local frame builders and they let me ride theirs in my MTB-less months, so I’d already decided it had to happen. And a friend pointed me towards Pace. The 2019 RC529, in fact.

It had it all. Threaded BB. External cable routing except for the dropper post cable. ISCG-05 tabs. Nice big tire clearance. Lovely colour and choice of decals. But more important, reach for miles (I’m 1m92), a slacker head tube than my beer can frame, and a steeper seat tube angle as well.

I ordered it, the first Icelandic Blue XL frame to be shipped to Holland. Orange decals on it. Well, at least that was the plan. It came with grey decals but that was quickly sorted: Pace sent me the right ones straight away (thanks Sophie!). At least now I can say I even put on my own decals, in addition to transferring everything from my previous frame to this one.

This thing is great. The steel frame seems to filter out the vibrations you get with an aluminium hardtail, but I’m not sure if it hasn’t got something to do with the longer and slacker geometry, too. I don’t really care either, I’m smashing my PR’s both up and down and I can stay in the saddle longer. That’s all thanks to that long reach and steep seat tube angle. New bike syndrome has worn off, already, so it has to be the bike.

My main training grounds are flat. That’s what you get in the middle of Holland, but I manage to get out to Belgium and Germany to do some proper trail riding too. No enduro’s yet, this year, but I’m sure my Pace will get its fair share of those in the near future.

In the mean time, I’ll sit on this Pace and love it.

PACE OWNERS WEEKEND

That’s right, 20th and 21st July 2019 based in North Yorkshire.

This is for all die-hard Pace fans who own a Pace bike. This could be owning any model from an original Pace RC100, downhill, trials or any other retro model right through to the latest generation 529 or 627 (and sorry this event does not include those who used to own a Pace bike or fork! )

This is your chance to come and meet the original and current designer and owner of Pace Cycles – Adrian Carter, ride bikes and maybe have a few beers with him and like minded people…what is there not to love?!

Itinerary:

Saturday 20th July: Meet at Sutton Bank Bikes for a brew before heading out on Adrian’s favourite trails taking in some of the finest views of North Yorkshire on fast, flowing singletrack with some more challenging bits thrown in for good measure (optional). All level of riders welcome.

Saturday evening meet up in Pickering at The No4 Bar for beers and a talk from Adrian then maybe hit the local Indian restaurant!

Sunday 21st July: Meet at Dalby Bike Barn (Thornton-Le-Dale) for a nice hangover ride up into Dalby Forest so Adrian can show you the trails he has been riding since way before Pace even started. We expect to be finished by 3ish on Sunday to give you plenty of time to head back.

Our new bikes will be there for you to try if you like but also our retro bikes from 30 years ago for you to reminisce over.

There is no charge for this event. If you are interested please book your spot by emailing  sophie@pacecycles.com or visiting the Eventbright page website by clicking here to see event times and further information.
