One of the latest road frames updated for 2012 is the Pacer by Surly Bikes. Aside from its 10-speed Tiagra components, the crown and rear tire spacing of the Pacer is also updated for 2012 to allow true clearance for 700×32 tires and 700x28s with fenders.

For the standard reach brakes, the options will be 47mm-57mm calipers only. In other words, the new 4130 TIG-welded Pacer frame will not work with any short reach brakes anymore, such as Campy, Dura-Ace, SRAM Rival, and 105. This versatile frame is ideal for commuting and day-tripping.
