Me too
On your bike..
You could probably get a better price from planetx for a carbon disc frame.

Worth noting that the rear thru axle is not included with the frame, front axle is included. As I understand the industry still hasn't decided upon a standard for thru axle. Not sure how easy it will be to source the rear axle.

Also worth considering this has press fit bottom bracket which some might like to avoid.

voted hot just because it looks like a white walkers bike (from game of thrones)
Oh that's lovely. Aren't 15mm through axles standard fitment anyway?
*12mm...
Yeah the RTD-80 which is a similar weight goes for £300 ish, but Planet X seems to be like marmite, some people hate it. I believe that a rear axle can be found for less than £30.

Rest assured that I won't be purchasing...
£502 more on chain reaction but you get 105 set, although doesnt look to be disc, same model name number though
Love my planet X RTD-90, but their trustpilot score is terrible, so not sure if I just got lucky getting mine well build and quick!
Tempted to get a more comfortable road frame my current gtr series 1 is a little racey for the riding I tend to do.... maybe just trying to justify to myself
The PX is an awful ride in my opinion, no give and it saps the energy out of you. They also use foam liners to wrap the carbon around which is really old tech. You get what you pay for.
So much of this thread seems to be in English!! It just means nothing to me 🤔
Will the wheels and drive train off my Apollo Transfer fit on this?
Does it come with stabilisers?
I'm fat and overweight so this will be ideal - I'm going to buy some top of the range components to go with it and then waddle out on the road - just try and keep up with me

Just I know several people with PX bikes/frames. The cx bikes are good. TT bikes are good IF you can get a position, but QC can vary massively. If you are unlucky the current gossip is that after sales service leaves a lot to be desired. If I am spending this sort of cash, it only takes one horror story from someone I know to make me look else where.

Planet X cut almost half their workforce last winter to replace with agency staff, I've given up on them after both my orders were incorrect on receipt, they appear to be the sports direct of cycling. I would say Merlin have been fine with all my purchases.

Thanks for the info. It's a shame to hear that but looks looks their reputation is still heading in one direction. Merlin are great, as are Sigma Sports

Because I frequent HUKD that's why. Do you have a problem with that? as I feel entitled to comment on any deal

Do you feel obligated to question my ability to comment on any deal, if so please reply and I will report you.
I like the red one. Tempting.

Guess you haven't noticed you're not even getting a bike for £800.... :P

Doesn't see to be the bargain it first appears; 2017 version for a little less at chainreactioncycles.com/edd…494

It'd have to be quite a bit cheaper for me to be interested

Good spot, although XS, S and XXL only. You could get an extra 10% off the Chain Reaction price with the British Cycling discount as well I think. Only they don't have the same availability on frame sizes as Merlin has.

Well it appears that was a sore point
What else do I need to buy to make it a complete bike?

What else do I need to buy to make it a complete bike?


Groupset, wheels, tubes, tyres, bars, stem, saddle, pedals, bar tape, cables

Gotta disagree there. Spread the cost over the working life of the object. Cars tend to work out as multiple thousand pounds per year, bikes are like £50-100

Merlin also have a built up bike using this frame for £1499 with all sizes currently available. Link.

To my mind this will be a good option for a lot of people as the cost of the extra parts needed would come close to £700 even if you worked hard. I guess the one downside is the low end wheels, but there are upgrade options with the build.
