What did you not like about Planet X Bikes?



Hi wolfesquire, I owned two... the first being the SL Pro carbon. It was my first carbon road bike and it felt miles better than the alloy dawes it replaced, but then after riding felt f5's, scott cr1's with similar spec kit I realised how pow the frame was. Obviously you get a very good groupset for the money on the PX's but the wheels/frame were poor. Haven't ridden any of their newer road frames, I've heard some are, dare i say it, 'good'.

As for the Exocet TT bike. It was unbelievably twitchy, and combined with their 82/101 wheelset I could barley keep the bike in a straight line in minor crosswinds. Again, that was my first TT bike. I was sponsored and rode a Felt DA3 last season which handled incredibly well. Guess thats where wind tunnel time that Felt and other major brands use comes into play, opposed top the open mould generic carbon companies who don't test to the saem extent.
