Long crossbar on these, I found I had to go one size smaller than usual to compensate
Good bikes though
Okay value, not brilliant. Only real difference between this and other recent ~£350 bikes is the Sora groupset.
The jump from Claris to Sora isn't huge and I don't think it is worth an extra £100.

As for sizing, check the geometry charts. Don't just take someone's word that "this bike has a shorter top tube than other brands" etc.

​I found flipping the stem helped bring the bars up a bit
I bought one of these a couple of years ago just for a play about road bike when i cannie be fussed getting the full suspension mtb out on the trails.
It may only have sora 9spd but it still changes ok and is not a bad handling bike, the only thing I've changed out is the rear cassette, chain and tyres.
Got to admit it's odd how a bike more expensive and with lesser spec gets hot but this didn't....Like no one has a clue haha!!
This is a great price. I paid a similar amount for my Btwin 520 from Decathlon but this is better.
Shouldn't be allowed on the roads unless the rider can do a constant 25mph, sick to the back teeth of fair weather bloody cyclists
got this bike 2 years ago was more like 369£//done me well but just needed to replaced headset bearing and ballache hub removeable with 12mm alan key. . and slotted botttom bracket was seized in to but good bike bang for it buck

Planet X doesn't always get much love. I remember when I first got into cycling & mentioned them to my bro he replied "Planet Flex". I do think the Felt looks a lovely bike though.
