Pace RC405 – now in colour

Pace RC405 in orange
I’ve just been reading on Singletrack magazine about the latest incarnation of the Pace 405.

It’s now available in three different colours which look superb. I particularly like the orange version you see here but reckon Khaki is quite striking too. It’s always been a bike I quite fancy the look of and now they’ve added colour to the mix I reckon it could tip the balance (supposing I was ever in the market for one).

It’s a bike that’s always had solid reviews and has a bit of a cult following – which means you don’t see many on the trails for some reason. Maybe it’s a regional thing but us Southerners are not normally slow to adopt high end frames. As a rule.

I for one hope to see more of these and would love the chance to test one against my Five which continues to impress after a winter on the hardtail. Anyone who reckons single pivot bikes have had their day should remember that a good bike is based on a lot more than the number of pivots.

Anyway, I hope Pace sell a few more based on these colours. The Pace Cycles website appears to have recently been hacked but I’m linking to it anyway.

About the author

Matt is one of the founding Molefathers of the Muddymoles, and is the designer and main administrator of the website.

Having ridden a 2007 Orange Five for many years then a 2016 YT Industries Jeffsy 29er, he now rocks a Bird Aether 9 and a Pace RC-627.

An early On-One Inbred still lurks in the back of the stable as a reminder of how things have moved on. You can even find him on road bikes - currently a 2019 Cannondale Topstone 105 SE, a much-used 2011 Specialized Secteur and very niche belt drive Trek District 1.

If you've ever wondered how we got into mountain biking and how the MuddyMoles started, well wonder no more.

    Hi – like your website. As the owner of a year old Pace 405 I love it and would recommend one to anyone. We’re coming down to Leith Hill on 12th July to ride Holmbury/Leith Hill.

    We have a couple of routes for the area on our site so know Barry Knows Best, Telegraph Row, Summer Lightning & stuff from Nirvana Cycles map – any tips on other bits to ride? Where is the quarry? Thanks – Rich
