Planet X RT-58 V2 Alloy Shimano Tiagra Road Bike with free Smorgasbord bundle worth £125

The Planet X RT-58v2 frame is crafted from 6061-T6 alloy and utilises a refined Sportive geometry for a powerful, smooth ride. A carbon bladed fork helps soak up the lumps and bumps of the worst road surfaces while tracking straight and true for pinpoint accurate handling. A taller head tube and longer chainstays combine to deliver a more upright and comfortable riding position that's perfect for long days in the saddle.

Groupset: Shimano's Tiagra 4700 groupset is 10-speed gearing done right and at a new, even lower price point.

Shifting finesse, ergonomics, drivetrain efficiency and durability are second to none for a 10-speed groupset. Tiagra is snapping at the heels of Shimano's own 11-speed groupsets. We've specced this bike up with a practical mix of Tiagra's best parts and there's a broad gear ratio that'll allow you to climb up any route no matter how steep it gets. 11-32t Cassette and 50-34 chainset.

Wheelset: Shimano WH-501Clincher Wheelset / Green Decal / SRAM / Shimano 9/10 Speed Shimano know a thing or two about building wheels and their top wheelsets trickle down technology to make their entry level wheelset offering one of the best in the biz. Light, strong and built to run true mile after mile the WH-501 wheelset is a peach.

With a frame of this quality and groupset and finishing kit that majors on smart design and lightweight performance you're getting a superb bike for your money, one that you'll enjoy on club runs and sportives for years to come.

Been riding this for about 6 weeks, and really enjoying it.

Great entry into proper road biking.

That sentence grates. It's a £500 bike so not. An entry into anything. What does "proper road cycling" mean? Putting on £200 of lycra to travel 5 miles to work ? My Raleigh chopper was my proper introduction to road cycling.

Not bad. Put some nice wheels on it and you get a very good training bike.
Great entry into proper road cycling;)

Ha.

Firstly, the broken sentences "It's a £500 bike so not" and "An entry into anything" are grating to me.

Secondly, I walk to work, and have been using the bike to ride 20-40 mile bike rides in the North West of hilly England, and coming from someone who is used to riding a Specialized hard-tail on local trails and tow paths, the bike has been a large upgrade in terms of speed and efficiency when road cycling. It has encouraged me to do more and get into the sport, and I am considering entering some sportives.

If you can judge a bike solely by it's price you are nothing more than an elitist snob, either because you are a four grand carbon show off, or a "when I was a lad I used to live in a cardboard box" inversely elitist bloke who believes only a man who rides a 20kg bike made of welded pieces of old coal mine lift shaft is a real man.

This bike has a well received Tiagra groupset which is favourably reviewed as being a perfect trade off in terms of price and performance not for the enthusiast, but for the novice. It is relatively light given its price and is in my opinion a good entry level road bike.

It's a great deal for yes an entry level bike that will be all many cyclists need. Some however will get the bug and want something better. This seems to be a difficult concept for some people to grasp with bikes yet not so with phones, electrical gadgets, cars etc. Some people seem to have a chip on their shoulder/blind spot with bikes... maybe a psychologist could explain why.

Just be careful you don't stare at your own posts for too long. Your self fascination may make you lose the will to live.

Wrong

okay deal for the money but planet x seems to drop another deal or sale every 5 minutes.. you can also buy this without the extra smorgasboard package for £479.99 in medium only ..depending if you want the extra junk or not? the smorgasbord pack is valued by planet x at £125 ..I say more like £20! so maybe better off saving on it unless you need the lights etc..
