The Pacer is not what most race-inspired roadies seem to drool over. It isn't made of ultra-light, superexpensive materials, and it isn't festooned with lots of bright colors and graphics. This is not a racing bike. It's a bike meant for all-day rides. That may not be glamorous but it makes a lot more sense for how people actually ride than many road bikes out there.
Pacer's geometry and Surly-designed CroMoly steel tubing make it fast and efficient like a road bike should be. Its lively, climbing and descending with equal agility, but it's comfy too. It doesn't have a lot of bells and whistles, but then it doesn't need them. Add water bottle cages and fenders if you like, then get out and ride. The clearance for tires up to about 32mm is a nice feature for an all-day bike. Higher volume tires take the edge off the bumps and jangles which otherwise can harsh your ride since tire casings flex before the frame. The frame is designed around common component standards, so there aren't many restrictions about how you can build it. If you choose the Pacer complete bike you'll find it has a nice mix of parts that work well and are durable. This year we changed up the componentry to a Shimano 105 Drivetrain and its got a shiny new paint job too. Prit-ty fancy.
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 need to make promises. It's too busy out there in the sun and rain, pounding out miles, flying down the road.

I love the bike. I was generally happy with the build quality when it arrived, apart from the bar tape and bar ends. One of the bar ends had fallen off in transit, revealing a tape job that looked a bit sloppy. The bar end had electrical tape wrapped round it (presumably to try to hold it in place) but that didn't work. The bar end does not neatly sit in the bars (i.e. won't properly hold the end of the tape inside the bars), which is a bit annoying.
