Ah, the Pacer, the most confusing bike in our line up. See, the Pacer is a road bike, but not the sort most race-inspired roadies seem to drool over. It isnt on the cutting edge of design, it isn't made of the latest ultra light super-expensive materials, and it isn't festooned with lots of bright colors and graphics. So of course it gets overlooked a bit. That's o.k. The Pacer is a road bike for the rest of us, a cromoly steel frame with geometry that makes it fast and efficient like a road bike should be. No extra gadgets of gizmos. This is a frame meant for all day rides. Pull on the arm warmers, fill up the bottles, stuff a banana and an energy bar in your jersey pocket and come home by dinner kind of rides.

The complete bike is fitted with the sorts of parts we like: functional, durable, reasonably light, good quality, and not too pricey. It's comfy but responds when you push hard on the pedals. We gave it 28mm tires, a good all around size that will still allow you to add fenders if you like. Since tire casings flex before the frame, higher volume tires to take the edge off the bumps and jangles which otherwise can harsh your ride.

The Pacer will not impress people who live for the next replica team ___kit. There are a lot of other road frames out there that are flashier, more exotic, and full of promises most riders only dream of fulfilling.  The Pacer doesn't make promises.  It's simply a great riding steel frame. See, that's not so confusing.
