Very interesting frame from planet x..... or whoever it supplying it. Sub 900G at around $500 USD with racing geo. Is this the CAAD Killer?

Not very much. Planet x galibier is 400 GBP, but caad12 frames can be found around 500 GBP.

Obviously, but I would gladly pay 100 extra to get the quality control and R&D of cannondale...
The planet X is just a china frame. :)

But I meant the weight in my first post :smartass: :beerchug:

If it rides any good maybe. Cannondale's hydroforming is way ahead of those tube shapes and the welds don't look as sophisticated as on the CAAD12. Light is easy, light, stiff, durable and any sort of comfort is another.

I'd be surprised if that fork is anything like as good or as light as the CAAD12 fork too...
