Planet X London Road Shimano Tiagra 4700 Disc Road Bike down from £699 to £499



Decent price and Planet X are good but make sure you understand if it's coming pre-built or build yourself. They have released a new scheme where they will knock off approx £200 off the price of a bike but you literally just get the parts and have to build it completely yourself
Yeah might be worth seeing if your LBS would build for a better price than the vendor
Looks good and comes in more colours.
Seatpost and bottom bracket thread lottery with this frame, google it. Shocking QC.
Additional parts required to complete the bike build.
Rim tape x 2
Inner brake cable
Outer brake cable
Outer gear cable
Gear Ferrules
As these bikes are shipped unassembled you will require certain bike tools to complete assembly. An allen key set, BB wrench, torque wrench, cassette lockring tool, headset press, hacksaw and fork cutting guide, chain tool/pliers and cable cutters should be considered an absolute minimum.
If you're handy then it's not a bad deal. I've just bought a frame and am buying the other bits to suit me.

There have been issues with seatpost clamps. I'll take it to my local Bike Station and fiddle with seatposts if needed. I've not heard of issues with the bottom brackets but I will be chasing the threads and making sure the frame is faced.
