Design notes

Cycling has progressed and so have our bikes. Whether or not you want to take the easy way or the hard route it's designed to meet modern demands on a simple machine. Although you could put a frame, handlebar and saddle bags on any kind of bike, the RC429 is purpose built and we've incorporated design elements that make that whole bikepacking experience much better.

Frame building process:

The new RC429 is designed, tested and assembled in North Yorkshire by Adrian the MD of Pace since the start - 1987.

We're pleased to say the RC429 is handmade and in production with our specially selected factory in Europe.

The factory have been making high-end frames for over 30 years and we actually worked with them back in the 90's; They had a pro mountain bike team which Pace sponsored with suspension forks. One of their riders raced the XC World Cup.
You may not know but Pace frames used to be made in North Yorkshire, England. Because of this we can really appreciate and understand the frame building process and what it takes to make high end frames.

It's a really interesting operation and it's a skill which takes years to learn. Some people have it in the hands and others don't, and that's why we have partnered up with this factory as their experience is unparalleled to match with our Pace ride quality and design.

We're excited about this partnership and it's great to work together again after 30 years.

Why Others Love Us

Ive always respected Pace as a brand, especially being the most local brand we have. I also believe in giving credit where it's due, for a small family business you're doing hell of a job competiting with the 'bigger' brands,


Pace RC295 owner

Thanks to Sophie and the Pace team for making the whole purchase process smooth and easy. They got back to me really quickly on the million questions I had, I was never left in the dark about my order.
The RC295 is so much better in person, the high quality finish teamed with ride feel makes it the best trail bike ive ever owned. Thanks Pace. 


Pace RC295 owner

Where enthusiastic bikers meet simple, honest products! Top notch service from Sophie and the Pace Cycles website. 


RC529 owner

Ive owned a few hardtails in my time and the RC529 is in a league of it's own for ride quality.  


RC529 owner

The glossy deep finish is outstanding and alot of care is taken to protect it in transit. The whole assembly speaks of engineering and careful but purposeful thought. I am buzzing to get this bike. 


RC627 owner

A connoisseur's dream come true. Not only is the geometry spot on for all purpose trail duties including proper gnar if you're in the mood, but the way the steel frames mutes trail buzz verges on magical.
