I think you did a nice job with that bike. Too bad you can't move the saddle back an inch and level it.

I always had a good impression of Planex X seeing Rebecca Charleton, etc. on their sweet track bikes. I'm a yankee tho, maybe the planet-x hate is a UK thing.

Thanks tinozee. It's weird you say that for the saddle, maybe it's the angle of the photo, i was trying half an hour with a spirit level to bring completely level.

What about the Farsport wheels astranoc? Did you encounter any issue?

I saw on their website that both tubular and clincher the highest possible air pressure is 120psi.

What about a nice tubular tyre inflated @ 140psi?? Would they brake or something?

On what air pressure do you run your tires?

Hi Corsa.

No issues so far but they are a bit flexy for my weight (80kg). I don't usually run my tubs that high so I don't know is the answer, but I have been running in them in 110-120 with no issues. The thing to keep in mind is braking, for the first 200-300kms the braking was appalling but it gets progressively better as the kms go by.

Appreciate the comments michel2 but there are so many more exotic bikes in here with some serious amount of tuning.
