Not great reviews on venting but good value if it fits yo

Agreed, I bought one as well and it was so uncomfortable I gave it away, shame as they look nice

bodie

I tried one of these last year. They look good but for me it was very uncomfortable. There is very little adjustment and it simply fits where it touches. I ended up sending mine back and buying elsewhere. You have to pay for returns so it turned out to be an expensive experiment for me.

Is the voucher emailed or sent through post?

bonzobanana

Ordered yesterday arrived today and I'd already spent the voucher on another order because of their fibonacci sale which should arrive Monday or Tuesday I guess. Quite a haul for about £40 and the helmet is great, fit's me perfectly. Some of the tyres are great value at the moment bought a couple of 700c tyres for £3 each, red kendas and some 26" tyres for a fiver each. Would of bought more but they limit you to 2 of each. The helmet I bought has gone up to £34 but it hardly matters as its still part of the free offer. My other helmet is a Cannondale and to be honest the Planet X one is better both in design and manufacturing quality. Not that it's really Cannondale anyway they are pretty much an importer themselves nowadays both for accessories and bikes except high end bikes where they have design input but still the Cannondale brand is seen as a premium bike brand.

Very good deal. They do some great offers. If you use Planet X anyway for regular orders it's basically a helmet for £4 delivered. The £25 helmet in the offer is only available in the large/extra large size.

TheGoofyZambian

32mm tyres make it perfect for communting, mechanical discs so easier to service Lightweight frame made of 6061 aluminium and mudguard/ pannier mounts make this a cracking buy. If you want to do more adventurous stuff then a 2nd set of wheels and wider tyres would be a good idea. More road use, then maybe a change of front sprocket and skinnier 28mm tyres

phill@sw-cc

That would make a cracking commuter or winter training bike. Gearing maybe a little on the low side for road use, unless you live somewhere really hilly.

mr_bargain

I agree. Open mould isn’t necessarily a bad thing, they’ve probably had more chance to perfect it and avoid issues. People banging on like they are Mark Cavendish. The fact is this bike will be more than 99.9% of people need. Some people try and massage their ego by pretending they are in the 0.01% and spend £5K on the lightest bike they can find. How, for example can someone be ‘better’ than Giant and wouldn’t be seen on one - it’s laughable. I’ve seen loads of reports on social media of people saying they waited months for a Canyon and it was damaged on arrival. One reason I went with Ribble is because I got a Carbon Sportive bike with full Ultegra and I’ve changed the wheels to Mavic Kysrium and tubeless tyres at a total cost of £1250. They are 30 minutes up the road from me so any issues I can drive straight there. That’s definitely more bike than I need as well with doing the odd 100 miler.

daern

It's interesting - Planet X seems to suffer from snobbery far more than other open-mould brands out there. I'm not sure if this is because they are keenly priced and everyone knows this, so there's no question when you turn up for a club run on your bike that people know you've bought to a budget. It's not like they are the only cheap carbon brand out there, but for some reason, they have a big, negative image that just seems to get worse with every passing year. FWIW, I've got a stable of some pretty exotic road and MTBs, but my PX RT57 (which I bought used a few years back) is my current winter steed and is seeing a lot of miles at the moment. It's a bike I've always enjoyed riding and I've never considered it to be "lesser" to the other bikes, even though it cost a fraction of what they did!

bonzobanana

If your buying a aluminium Canyon why not just buy a bike from the real manufacturer of the frame Giant rather than an importer/assembler. Also Canyon has moved away from Giant for their Carbon frames to Quest Composites and that is not a high end factory. You shouldn't swallow the marketing crap either as I've seen forum postings where their carbon frames have cracked on the first ride and they definitely have a history of poor carbon frames. Canyon sell on innovating with their frame designs but then are manufactured in Asia. Also for their lower end models they are having complete bikes assembled in the Far East, not all of their bikes get assembly in Germany. Personally if I was buying Carbon I'd want it to be a state of the art factory like Giant and would actually expect the Planet X carbon frame to be safer than the Canyon. Pretty sure Planet X use mainly if not exclusively open mould carbon frame designs these tend to be used by many brands/importers around the world so get the most feedback to the factory with improvements. Canyon tend to innovate and that means new designs which have not evolved and improved with a much higher risk of failure. Again though I get tired of these importers/assemblers pretending to be full bike manufacturers. A Giant bike has a much better lifetime warranty, higher weight limits and you have a local store that can provide support assuming you buy locally and you are riding a bike actually made by the brand on the bike which seems novel nowadays. Canyon once used Giant for their carbon frames then they became too expensive and they went to a cheap carbon frame manufacturer in mainland China maybe they have moved again, who knows, importers don't really represent a quality level same with most brands, I thought 'Felt' were good but saw many of their bikes now are made in low end factories in Bangladesh, crap mechanically formed frames not hydro-formed. Many brands keep moving to cheaper factories to remain competitive. As far as I know Giant have resisted creating factories in countries which don't get hit with additional EU duties due to quality concerns. Giant represent a quality level because they are a real manufacturer not an importer. At least Canyon represents fairly decent value as previously stated many high end Italian bikes have extreme markups compared to their manufacturing cost and that industry is driven mainly for exports as Italians tend to buy quite cheap bikes on average themselves. I definitely wouldn't assume a Canyon carbon frame is better than Planet X the reverse could easily be true and I would likely think the Planet X is safer and stronger even if that is at the expense of a small amount of additional weight.I certainly think aluminium frames are a better option for most people as less brittle but remember the most likely component to fail is carbon forks rather than carbon frames statistically.

Not an option for those of us with knee conditions. My advice would be to slowly increase the power through the legs bit by bit...

Less than 1000 for hydro discs is a breakthrough TBF. I paid 1200 (heavily discounted) for my cube with 105 (505 brakes) 2 years ago.

Gareth79

I bought a pair of these off Amazon recently and they are pretty good. The advantage over a plain screw-in hook is that these have four fixing holes so it's perhaps a little more secure, and there's a plate for the tyre so if you have it mounted in a "nice" place it won't make the wall grubby. Warning though! The fixings that came with mine are pretty rubbish quality (as is common with most Chinese stuff), so use quality screws and plugs from elsewhere. If you have large tyres on the bike then it might be a tight fit though - I have 27.5 disc wheels with 2.25 tyres on my MTB and it only just fits.

black.knight

These don't scream 'space saving' to me

villageidiotdan

If you imagine spinning the image counter clockwise 90 degrees it makes more sense. You place the wheel into the hook and the tyre then sits on the ridged plate which keeps it from slipping around. I'd say if you can get them 4/ £10 on ebay like other people have said it's worth paying that over standard hooks.

Exactly what i had with my Cannondale - "105" with FSA and Tektro. In fairness the FSA cranks are pretty decent, the Tektro's were not. Just single pivot jobs, so bought 105s and swapped them over. Made a noticeable difference.

I did the Cingles last summer, on my rim braked Canyon Ultimate - it's a great day out, and quite a ride. I was scared of it getting too hot later in the day and started at dawn, was fine in the end, although windy (surprise surprise) at the top. Bedoin, Maulacene then Sault in that order. The descending is fast, though not hugely technical, I had no worries with rim brakes at ~70 kg, though if heavier this might be slightly more of a worry. I don't think a bike as fancy as my sub-7 kg ride is necessary. What is more useful than losing a kg in the bike is having the correct gearing. I normally ride 52-36 cranks with 11-28 cassette, but swapped to 50-34 11-32 gearing, which I was very grateful for. I think the change of cranks wasn't necessary, but at the end of 4500+m of climbing, it helped. I'd love to go back and have a full tilt at the Bedoin ascent to see what sort of time I could do up there without thinking about two more ascents! Enjoy.

Planet X have added the Pro Carbon Shimano 105 R7000 Road Bike to the 25% offer, so it works out at £824.99 + deivery. Link. They have large only for this version. I'd suggest that this bike is the pick of the deals if it's your size as it has the latest 105 groupset and FSA Team 30 Comp 700c Road Wheelset and is listed as weighing 8.0 kg in its medium version.

OK you got me here. I'll bite. So I've be done Mt ventoux once https://www.strava.com/activities/1755407993/shareable_images/map_based?hl=en-US&v=1533668305&utm_source=com.google.android.gm&utm_medium=referral And it was awesome and brutal at the same time.

bonzobanana

That is common with aluminium which normally fatigues over time and cracks and they only really offer warranty on duff welds etc unless the frame is very young within the first couple years but I don't get the excuse for carbon. It is a very strong material that shouldn't naturally fatigue. It's only really manufacturing errors that cause it to fail unless the frame has been damaged with a fall or crash etc which should normally mark the frame I would of thought. I believe Planet X carbon frames are open mould frames, so not state of the art but tried and tested designs by many importers around the world and tend to be safer carbon bikes at the expense of weight possibly. So many different importers selling the same frame designs feeds back much information about where the frames have failed to the manufacturers and provides design or manufacturing improvements. Higher end frames often have to justify higher prices with lower weight and innovative frame geometry which are 2 reasons they are more likely to fail. I'm a Giant fan I have to admit but if I wasn't buying Giant I think I'd be happier with an open mould design rather than one of the brands that designs bike frames without fully engineering them and then relies on the actual manufacturer in the far east to finish the process, sometimes whoever is the cheapest to tender for the contract. Saying that many brands use open mould for their entry level carbon frames and try to innovate for their high end carbon frames. I feel the cheaper frames not only represent a cost saving but superior safety for only a tiny loss in performance. As ever make sure you use a credit card and its best to pay for the bike directly on the site and not use an intermediate payment system like paypal or amazon which might lower your consumer rights. Paypal specifically are not going to be great at obtaining a refund if a frame fails 3 years after purchase, they barely offer any consumer rights after 3 months. I could be wrong about that but saw a Watchdog or possibly Martin Lewis episode where they said your consumer rights were reduced by using paypal but don't know the full technical details of why.If your spending big money on a new bike best to sacrifice a bit of convenience and fill in the credit card details on the bike shop site itself.

Dekard97

Depending on the type of riding you do really. People do indeed (myself included) have a bike suited to a particular type of riding. You can get all sorts of different frames/geometries, wheels, etc specifically suited for different types of riding. Most folk go for a good all-rounder, but it depends on the person. If someone came to me looking for a bike for climbing, the last thing I would advise would be disc brakes. However, descending Mont Ventoux is a different thing altogether! But yeah, despite common belief, rim brakes can be just as effective as disc brakes. Some professional riders actually believe them to be better.
