Yebbut it's 1/10th of the price of the £8000 telly that was on here the other day, so a bargain! Healthier too!

PeeFlaps, the bike shop I ordered from has just tried a bait and switch; apparently, despite having a payment confirmation, the bike I bought is "out of stock"; but I can pre order a 2018 for a small extra fee.....

Oh well, SWMBO will be happy I havent spent over £600 on a bike.

Actually, my first car was only £50 in 1993 and whilst they have subsequently been far more in value at various times, my previous car to my current one did actually only cost £800 and was only replaced last year after 3 years as the only family vehicle.(I know, "cool story, bro" and all that!)



I know they were jokes, but some bikes DONT come with pedals for exactly the reasons I gave.

Yeah, my first car was £50, a rusted out old Hillman Hunter that the guy didnt realise had a racing engine in it; we got it up to 115mph IN THIRD, then chickened out.

Anyone know about mudguard mounts?


None fitted so the choice is crudcatchers or similar. Bought one of these on a cycle to work scheme at half term following price drop from 1499.00 to 999.99. Don't expect the lightest machine as once you've added some cages and a GPS mount you are looking at 10kgs for the xls.

I have to agree - And I've got the TRP Spyres and Deore hyd.... you just don't get the stopping power you do from hydraulic. It's an absolute joy to use the hydraulic, fab modulation... total convert over here

Not bad, but those wheels are terrible (speaking from experience).

Cable discs also suck. These TRP models are probably the best of the bunch, but they still suck. Again, speaking from experience here.

Still, not bad to get you started but you'll soon be replacing the brakes.

You need internal routing in the frame for the stealth version. Can be done DIY but you need to do some research done first.

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.

Totally agree mate. Good on you I say

Just be wary of the Btwin bikes because of the low weight limits. It may not effect you but typically across the range they state 100kg minus the weight of the bike and accessories/luggage etc. However there is no information on weight capacity on the Planet X site at all and both have only a 2 year guarantee on the carbon forks which doesn't inspire confidence.

Many would be better off with a cyclocross bike for strength and therefore greater confidence unless lightness and speed are the absolute main buying criteria. Such bikes often have mechanical disc brakes and have no problem with the roughest roads and even light off road use. If you are over 80kg in weight surely a better choice for most.

However if you really do want a light road bike with carbon forks but are over 80kg the weight limit on some brands goes up to 120kg for rider, accessories and luggage. If you exceed the weight limits given for a bike then you void the warranty as well as risk injury or death if the frame fails.

No bike is ever too much for a beginner, the only limitation is the budget. A better first bike makes you enjoy it more and more likely to keep cycling. My first road bike cost a few times more than this and was great fun.

Only extra cost would be for pedals and maybe bottle cage. And any other of the numerous optional gadgets. Should be more or less ready to ride, just straighten the steerer and adjust saddle height. Takes a few minutes only.

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.

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....
