    I did look into those as well, but I'm trying to keep my DA brakes. Everything I've read suggests that short reach Shimano brakes reach and will possibly fit (maybe with some tweaking) 25c's with...

    Calling all Pacer owners... let's see them!

    I already did a search about the Pacer, but didn't find exactly what I'm looking for. It seems like they make good long distance bikes and overall you Pacer owners like your bikes!

    Definitely ask for it back. This kind of thing happens at bike shops. The part gets put down, they get busy and rushed, mistakes happen.

  8. Show me your Surly Pacer, can you get it under 20lbs?

    I have an older steel Lemond that's just a little too big for me. I'm looking for a new frame and fork (or just new to me) that'd be 1 1/8" and threadless that I could swap with the Lemond. Right...

    These have all been great suggestions. Thanks for the help!
