AND MASSAGED INTO
THE SHAPE YOU'VE
ALL BEEN WAITING FOR
The new 29" specific hardtail.
Let's introduce you to no ordinary 29er. Slammed, stretched and massaged into the shape you've all been waiting for our new RC529 is no token effort or rehashed 650b but the real deal served up with a big side order of Pace passion. We've designed it so you're fully engaged in the ride and not just a passenger - low bottom bracket so you're 'in' not 'on', long front centre and reach so you can keep it pinned in the gnarl and a steep seat tube and short chain stays so you'll climb and manual like a Grizzly. Super low standover to keep us short legged Northerners and all the lovely finishing touches you'd expect from us no matter where you're from.
The RC529 has an 66 degree head angle to give you confidence when the trail falls off a cliff. Standard features include the sublime ride quality of its Reynolds 853 frameset nipped and tucked for that soft and forgiving ride and minimalist look. Our unique boosted Slideout system so more room can be created for bigger tyres- up to 2.4” leaving 5mm tyre clearance either side. Short tapered headtube tough enough to take 130-150mm travel forks. Routing for an internal dropper and all the quality details you’d expect from Pace. Engineered from high quality British Chromo tube the RC529 gives that wonderful spring to your ride. No other material can quite match these characteristics and the phrase 'steel is real' is as true today as it ever was. Of course you'll be riding your tough and durable RC529 for years to come given the amazing fatigue properties of steel. And we've added subtle gussets to those high load areas like the underside of the head tube, drive side chain stay and beneath the seat tube clamp to provide that additional bit of re-assurance. You also get ISCG tabs as standard so should you want to fit a chain retention devise or bash plate you’re good to go.
Slideouts have been a unique feature on our steel frames for years now and offer more than first meets the eye. This system provides fore ‘n’ aft movement of the rear wheel- forward when you want a poppy playful ride with your weight further back- great for manualing and tech climbing. Or rearward when you want your weight more central giving increased stability and the sensation of gluing the bike to the trail. They're a proven way to give you built in adjustment without having to flip a chip or replace hangers and brake mounts. Refined, durable and reliable- no quirky design or materials here thanks just solid design and engineering.
Our RC529 gives a wonderful confidence inspiring ride. The chainstay is kept as short as possible for a real world 29” configuration so hustling the bike along in gnarly terrain is a cinch. Comparing the RC129 with the RC529 it is longer enhancing the sensation of stability and dominance over the trail. Internal routing through the seattube also has reinforcement where the dropper post hose/cable exits and we’ve sealed this with a neat and tidy custom made grommet (we know you love to see attention to detail on a Pace).
The 29er frame features graceful curves and tucks to the chain and seat stays to give that extra clearance for wider section tyres and we've added full rear rack and mudguard mounts for those who fancy a bit of back country hustling or need to load up those panniers.
RC529 also features the latest boosted rear frame spacing so you have clearance for larger section tyres, a stronger rear wheel and efficient chainline.
To protect your frame for the long haul each frame has a corrosion protective ‘ED’ black coating beneath the twin-pack epoxy and tough final lacquer coating and we've chosen to fit the decals on top of the clear coat rather than under the lacquer so you can easily change the decal set and choose a different colour anytime in the future.

TOUGH BUT BEAUTIFUL
We wanted a real connection, warmth and visceral working relationship with the trail & steel delivers like no other material. After years of riding and comparing different materials we realised - through projects like our fully rigid singlespeed RC129 - that we were only going to get what we wanted one way. Through the highest quality 853 steel tubing from Reynolds blended with our own custom drawn chromoly.
