Strengths:    - the display is easy to read
- not to expensive

Weaknesses:    - not so preciced
- slow heart rate lecture frequence
- targets setting are not precised (scale of 5)
- bad for intervals training, it reads badly and pick's up your heart rates irrigularities

Bottom Line:   
It was my first heart monitor and I bought it because I didn't had alot of money for the big models. But the Pacer disapointed me and I'll have to buy a new one because the information it was giving me was not accurate (ex. it was giving me a lecture aprox. 10 reps higher than the one taken manualy or with an other device).

If you're training seriously, you should save a bit more your money and buy a better model from Polar, at the end it's going to be cheeper than buying an other one after a while just like I did.

The Pacer is made more for a week-end jogger type of user than a person that train seriously with his head.

Allez Steel vs Surly Pacer

I really hate saying versus but for regular, non competitive, riding what makes the better bike? I have a Pacer frameset at home. From what I can see they're pretty close. The big difference is the Pacer can take some pretty fat tires.Read More »

My Pacer for your CC. 54cm

Title pretty much says it all. I have a 2008 Pacer I would like to trade for a Cross-Check. Its a 54cm frame, black, mint. I'm interested in just trading frame and fork, but I am open to the idea of trading complete bikes. i36.photobucket.com/albums/e10/sachase/2011-11-06_12-06-19_243.jpg?t=1320 ... Read More »

Surly Pacer vs. older steel frame??

Loved the '98 schwinn peleton I sold a couple winters ago. Currently on a Scandium Salsa Campe'on. I'd like to get another steel frame from CL or ebay etc. I've seen Surly Pacer, and Soma frames in budget priced new steel. Also lots of old 531 Treks and tons of older Italians in a price range can ... Read More »

Surly Pacer complete. About to order.

I'm about to pull the trigger on a new Surly Pacer complete. I'm fine with the stock Tiagra components. Rest are cheesy componets, but I'm not looking for anything fancy. For a grand, can't think of another bike I'd rather get for the price. I know she ain't no light-weight, but neither is my Steamr ... Read More »
