Does anyone know the O.D. of the legs on the Pace RC31? Has anyone used the bolt on canti studs for that? I am curious if there is any problems with slippage under hard braking.

I run disk brakes on my Pace RC-31s

Cant comment on V-brakes

Although, there appears to be a sticker covering a small 1mm hole aboput where you would put the v-brake canti studs. Could this be to stop slippage.

Pace have a reputation for well engineering components. I wouldn't think they would slip. I will measure the diameter today and post the findings.

I ran the V set-up. No issues at all. Put about 4000 miles on that fork last year.

Tippster, did you get a chance to measure those fork legs?

Measured at the yellow band (where the v-brake bosses are fixed).

112mm diameter.

nikh, I think you know. I have given up on carbon disk in lieu of a sub 6lb rigid fork. I want to match the pace leg so I can use their canti studs. How does that sound? If one runs disk, it would be full carbon. No metal whatsoever. Can you confirm your pace leg diam?

I sold mine :(

I think 4" circum is about right from memory.

I now have a nice steel rigid fork from Surly.

It's a little bit heavier than 600g though!

The ride was harsh compared to the Surly it was beating me up tbh.

For me it was a race only fork, if I raced!

More of an explanation on this thread
