Frame is a small and weighs 1050gr actual, that's painted, inc front and rear mech hangers and seatclamp !
Less than manufactures quoted ! That never happens.
Fork was 390gr before cutting. Solida fork is what's used on higher models inc the Estrada.
This is the Sprint model although it doesn't say it on the frame, the weight and the all carbon columbus for confirm this (and this colour is only available in Sprint model).
The paint and colour in my opinion is beautiful, an antidote to the black and white of the Isaac before it.
Oh yeah frameset only cost £599

A few spacers will be going from above the headset in time.
Ok the elephant in the room - Ritchey on a Cinelli who make their own bars, stems and seatposts ?
I like the Ritchey kit, it looks good and it's what I have for now plus some Cinelli is very expensive and not very light - I'll have a think about this.
Could save a ton of weight with a Sram groupset but Campag looks right hre plus I'm not a fan of Sram levers apart from the new Red levers which are a bit like Campag anyway.
Maybe some Super Record in the Spring ?
Regarding the Ritchey bits, if it worries you I'd just take the logos off. I agree that unfortunately the Cinelli parts have not kept up with the times.
Didn't quite realise how big PX are - I have this image that they are a couple of guys in a shed, but that's obviously outdated.
Not worried enough about the Ritchey stuff to spend £600 on Ram bars and seat post, it's just the Italian on Italian law I'm conscious of !
Planet-X did pretty much start off in a shed in Doncaster I recall and as you say they have really grown, good range of products that change often and at good prices plus good customer services. Luckily for me the showroom is only 40 miles away so can checkout the online stuff easily in person if I want. They actually swapped the groupset and finishing kit over for me from my old bike the day after I bought it and while I waited too ! (Didn't know they did that until I happened to meet the workshop manager in reception as I was collecting it and mentioned I'd be taking it to my LBS (who would have charged me lots more) or I'd have taken my old bike up the first time, as I said great customer service).
