Seems like the bike haters are downvoting on this. Can't see them finding a comparable spec new bike for less money ho hum.
Probably because there was a bike in Tesco for 50 quid last week

Clearly these are going to be so similar that why would anyone spend the extra £950?!..

That's light for a bike oO
...how strong are they, will it break if my Focus Estate goes over it?

Strong for a bike, probably best not run over any bike with a car. Somehow I doubt it's one of the tests they do on new bikes.

If you have two bikes with identical kit, one with an aero frame the other with your Tesco frame, there will be absolutely no difference in speed. 90% of the air resistance comes from the person not the bike.
Purely from the facts you state, you prove yourself wrong. #facepalm

At £399.99 This is Superb! It's not old stuff either, for those that think Sora is bad you should realise this has the 2017 R3000 groupset with the updated 4 arm crank similar to previous years 105, ultegras and even the 2012 dura ace, I imagine it's not much different to them as shimano would let the tech trickle down. Along with that finishing of the bike is great with good aesthetic appeal for moral. Comparable bikes are in the region of £700-850.

Good spot! I was comparing it to my 3500 which I am more than happy with. Judging by reviews this seems to be at least on a par with old Tiagra albeit without the extra gear.
Only compromise I can see is the Tektro brakes but I have them on my 3500 equipped bike and they do the job. Apex and Rival with Swisstop pads can be had cheap. Planet X were doing them for about £8 each all in recently!
I think it's a well specced bike for the price. UKHD experts and stalkers disagree. Hope there aren't too many posts asking about beginners bikes henceforth...
If I'd of been able to get a bike from a reputable brand with this spec when I bought my 1st road bike I'd of been well chuffed!
I was forced into what the insurance company used with Wheelies and, like a new car lost a third upon receipt .
You'll lose money on this but even if you don't get on with it and hardly use it you will easily get £300 all day long. Compared to the BSO that get hot on here for around £100 and have no value once purchased I think it's a good punt

''I'd have'', not ''I'd of''.

"ideal winter trainer" as opposed to "ideal Cat 1 race bike". i.e. fine to grind into a paste in grotty weather to keep your nice bike for races, sunny days etc.


Seemed like a good deal to me. If it had rack bosses I'd of bought....

Planet X were taking a gamble on this appealing to beginners. Well specced bike for the money. And beginners that haven't a clue are well more likely to leave negative reviews.

Anyone that bought the Sora has done well IMO....

Fair deal for the money but "ideal winter trainer for the serious competitor"??. Anyone serious would touch Sora...

a) that's expensive can find better deals and b) you can get the same kit for £3.53 on Amazon free postage
But if you get 10 then that's only £1.40 each.... still probably cheaper to learn to go round the hedgehogs though.


Lol, why would you want 10, get some park pre-glued patches and decent set of levers, or some stans, bite the bullet and go tubeless ;)

Thanks. Just ordered some as I split a tyre last night.
I think getting puncture resistant tyres is the key to reducing punctures. Schwalbe marathon plus seem to be the industry standard and well rated, but I have been very happy with continental tour ride tyres, which are a bit cheaper.
Also keeping good tyre pressure is important, and avoiding thorns.
They feel a bit heavier, but punctures really do become rare.
You will still need a mini pump and spare inner tube and get some really good levers which wont snap with a bit of a struggle. I kept breaking them until I bought better quality "pedro's" for £5, although I have also bought a nice looking pair for £1.50 off aliexpress
Can anyone recommend the best way to reduce risk of getting punctures please?

Should I go for puncture resistant tyres or get puncture resistant inner tubes? Maybe the self healing ones?

Still getting colder. Still not sure why.

Can someone who votes cold at least have the courtesy to leave a comment???
Probably, i'm not checking :D Although at least you get to choose what stuff you want.
I think the On-One Enduro Helmet Bundle may be biggest overcharge here. Link. Get the bundle for £39.99 or buy the 3 items separately for £22.50
thank you for this deal got some great bike stuff from planet x cheers
Yeah its probably to catch the impulse or lazy buyers out.

What i don't get is why its going cold? What more do people want, 3 good quality hats and a neck warmer for £11.49 delivered. Is it just easier to vote cold? :D

Or pay over £14 more just for a front light here.... Cateye front £35.99

Admittedly I do struggle with the common sense of the average person. I'm a cyclist, motorist and walker. There really are some moronic drivers and cyclists.

Unfortunately I see way too many cyclists using no or pointless lights. When it's clear that they have spent a load on their bikes and gear.

£22 to not be missed seems a good deal to me. LOL!!

Stunning looking bike that.
or buy the cheaper one sell the brakes and wheels, then buy the better parts, I myself built my planet x rt57 with ultegra 6800 groupset and aksium wheels and deda elementi bars stem, fizik saddle etc for 840 pounds total but that took alot of ebay searching plus scouring of the internet for the best deals. You could save alot of time and effort by buying this deal and upgrading the parts, selling the excess bits off.
.... Having said all that I don't have the new bottom bracket tools only retro-stuff... Also not sure about the headset / fork size? Why do they have to keep changing headsets and bottom brackets? :D

every tool you will need is there other than a torque wrench and hacksaw

http://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/TOJW41PCTK/jobsworth-pro-41pc-swap-shop

.. i have seen this toolset for as low as 25 pounds if you search it out. bb spanner can be bought for 8 pounds separately if you wanna go that route, you need a plastic insert which costs about 2 quid also, usually supplied if you buy the chainset separately or borrow one from the local bike shop(sometimes they give them away for nothing)

headset drops in, and you cut the steerer tube to be a few millimeters below the level of your spacers/stem and compress with the Planet X Carbon Steerer Fork Bung before tightening the stem with the torque wrench.

I totally agree. Bought a load of stuff off eBay to rebuild my old Orange Dynamo, took a while and some patience but I quite enjoyed it tbh... It's amazing the sort of kit you can pick up for not much money if you do your research.

Pipecutter is better than a hacksaw for cutting steerers. Mind and measure twice. Not sure what the reference to crown ring is, but a headset can carefully be inserted with a mallet. Most crown races are split now so easy to install and remove. I'd probably advise against self-build unless you have the tools and have some idea of what you are doing.


I'm assuming this has a carbon steerer, in which case the pressure from a pipe cutter would possibly de-laminate the the carbon and weaken it.

Assembling your own bike isn't for everyone but I for one have always enjoyed doing it and find it immensely satisfying. Apart from a crown race setting tool and hacksaw to cut the steerer to length, all the other tools you need, you'll need anyway for carrying out routine maintenance owning a cyclo-cross/gravel bike. 18 piece Shimano tool set from Planet X £21. Cable cutters £5-10. Torque wrench £25. Hacksaw £5. Ask your local bike shop to fit the headset crown race, mine do it for free (takes less than 30 seconds) and if your not confident cutting the steerer, ask your dad or consult the oracle - YouTube!

Most local bike shops will build it for you for 50 pounds upwards. As it takes a few hours to do it properly its well worth it rather than ballsing it up yourself.

Cheap prices but a terrible company, just hope you never have to return anything!
Have bought from them a handful of times but never had to return anything. Have seen a few reports it can be a bit of a farce, but may be worth giving them a chance if the price is right.
I'd say they have become more hit and miss over time (particulalry since they raised the free delivery price). Shame because I've bought some good stuff at good prices from them and usually been fine. I've never had to return anything but some leg warmers quickly proved to be ankle warmers as the gripper didn't work well so they don't get a lot of useand one pair of oversocks tore on first ride and they sent me walking socks as a replacement as they were out of stock! There are definitely still bargains to be had and this may be one of them. At that price I reckon it'd be worth a punt for Campag/Holdsworth fans.
so you brought some oversocks for your bike shoes and they tore on the first ride ! and when you sent then back they sent you normal walking socks !??! WALKING SOCKS ? how is that a replacement. your item was oversocks for bike shoes not socks for walking boots. CrAzY . this is just why this company is bad. they should of given you a full refund or a choice.
Not exactly but I was trying to keep the story short. I didn't actually have to send the torn oversocks back. They offered me merino socks as a replacement. I expected cycling ones but walking ones turned up - actually they are very decent quality socks and are probably worth a lot more than the oversocks ever were.
I'd say their customer service is neither the best nor the worst I've had and their products are sometimes terrific bargains and sometimes a bit crap, probably more of the former to be fair. Overall I find it's a bit of a lottery but still worth chancing from time to time when the price is right...as Ithink it certainly is at £28 for a stylish retro merino jersey or jacket.

There are definitely still bargains to be had and this may be one of them. At that price I reckon it'd be worth a punt for Campag/Holdsworth fans.

so you brought some oversocks for your bike shoes and they tore on the first ride ! and when you sent then back they sent you normal walking socks !??! WALKING SOCKS ? how is that a replacement. your item was oversocks for bike shoes not socks for walking boots. CrAzY . this is just why this company is bad. they should of given you a full refund or a choice.

Cheap prices but a terrible company, just hope you never have to return anything!


I had an issue with an slime inner tube they spend me 5, as per original order. Arrived next day. I found their customer service to be exceptional.

Have bought from them a handful of times but never had to return anything. Have seen a few reports it can be a bit of a farce, but may be worth giving them a chance if the price is right.
I'd say they have become more hit and miss over time (particulalry since they raised the free delivery price).

Agree
my last order, they sent the wrong item and i needed to return it. but i had to pay the postage to return it just so they could send out the correct item. so i was out of pocket and also10 days before they sent out the correct item

nightmare to deal with, cheap but not worth the trouble . AVOID !

if you do a big order the planet x sales are the business HOT!
Some of the stuff is rubbish but i picked up a pair of £55 bib shorts for £15 earlier this month, along with an £8 jersey (down from £35) and some cheap socks, yes 3 pairs for £2.

£3.95 for delivery would have happily been paid just for the bib shorts. Added the full order below as no doubt someone will come along and say that i didn't.

unless your buying quite a few bits with a good saving on them its not worth it as the postage price of £3.95 makes any small bargains pointless.

and of course their crap customer service, last time i ordered something they sent the wrong size and it was also a customer returned item as it was dirty and used. so after contacting them i was told to send it back for a refund but i would have to pay the return postage fee. ! never again
£3.95 postage for orders under £100. Cold

Plus postage?
I think there is a certain amount to pay like £ until you get free postage not 100% sure.

My daughters Cerise in small was delivered yesterday, colour is beautiful, LBS are building it including rim tape, cable sleeves and ensuring wheels are properly true for £50. I could have done it but I'd rather let the man who does it daily sort it properly. Missed the other offers but £650 built by a trusted LBS is a great HUKD in my view.

The terms and conditions for that code include:

* excludes Special Build your own bikes, Finance, Bike to work and Vouchers

And indeed if you try to use the code you get the message:

No further discount on this item

The code does work on pre-built bikes though, so the Planet X Pro Carbon Shimano Ultegra 6800 Mix Road Bike mentioned above is now £810 plus delivery. While it's £90 more than before and you don't get full Ultegra, I would still say this is the best deal out there right now for a decent spec carbon fibre road bike.

Ribble and Planet X bikes are both quality makes, I've got the planet x RT58 frame for my general road training bike and have no complaints. Also the customer service at Planet X is fine, they're pretty flexible and friendly.
I don't think this deal is that great. if any part is defective you may get blamed for a blunder in building it. anmd they may refuse return... have others tried before?

I bought a ready built similar bike (ribble carbon pro evo bike with latest full tiagra set ready built) for £570 in the summer. I returned the first due to some unacceptable scruffs.
obviously that deal is not available at that price at present. But if your willing to wait i'm sure some will turn up that are even better than these two in terms of brands.

I've had these running for over 1000 miles and no punctures yet, maybe the roads your riding ;-0

sorry , but they are a long way from decent tyres , they are terrible.
I had these fitted on a bike I bought from Planet X & I averaged one puncture for every 50 miles before I
gave up & replaced them with Continental Grand Prix 4000.
These are not made in Germany like most Continental tyres - they are made in Taiwan or Malaysia & have very thin tread & sidewalls.
