It is generally accepted that the spd sl pedal benefits from less energy wastage from movement, twisting and vertical. The shoes are generally lighter and stiffer. With regard to bike cost, I always tell people to buy the most expensive well specced bike they can afford. If you don’t and you actually enjoy cycling you will be changing very quickly. Carbon frames are stiffer, lighter, and faster. Ultegra gearing has less friction, cleaner changes, and more precise. Expensive wheels are more aerodynamic, weigh less, and are stiffer and faster. Better brakes stop quicker. For those who think there is little difference between a £600 bike and a £5000 bike have obviously never ridden one. Even the difference in a £2k bike compared to a £600 bike is night and day.

From my experience I find that on longer rides, my toes and feet start cramping. The positions of the cleats and width of the pedal surface is to blame. Once the cramp sets in it will be slower. Was on the Shimano M520 then switch to the wider M530 over 4 years. Same problem. Don’t have the issue on my spd sl.

dan1979

Carbon is stiffer and gives a smoother ride, it's not just about weight.

dan1979

Assuming same shoe sole construction and weight how is it faster exactly?

daern

Sure, but as an alternative view, I bought my winter road bike used for £600 and it weight just over 7kg, so I would equally question why anyone would spent so much on a new bike. Of course, the answer is easy - it's because we all have different priorities in life and value things differently. Some would want a nice, shiny new bike that never needs to be touched, while others sill spend (quite literally) hours in the workshop tinkering and repairing them. I'm one of the "club riders doing 200 miles a week at 19mph" mentioned above and I really value my cycle kit. I've got a good idea on where to spend the money and where not to and I definitely appreciate the difference between a £500 bike and a £5000 one! Not everyone will feel this way, but that's ok - I don't like golf, football or any one of a hundred other things that people enjoy doing. I like cycling and am happy to spend money on it!

I think that's rare though but it depends on how good a deal you get for the components. I think if you bought this bike upgraded to the components of the VR and then sold the spare bits you would have a far more expensive bike and lost your warranty but I haven't done the maths but it certainly looks that way. Components are often sold at a far higher markup than complete bikes and are offered to bike manufacturers at hugely discounted prices compared to retail versions. Individual frame prices are a rip off. Most aluminium frames are made in China and have a factory door price of sub $20 and only 2-3x that for carbon. As ever though its about what the market will bear not what something costs to manufacture.

whatyadoinsucka

haha, buying a bike is a more casual experience than buying a car.. cars come with basic kit same as bikes, a ford popular is not the same as a ford XR2I it doesnt always ring true you need to price in the upgrades, my bike cost me £2,500 less to build myself to my own spec, than to buy off the shelf as you say.. although i bought another bike earlier this year, sold all the bits and ended up with the frame, stem and wheels for £550, when the frame was £600+ to buy and on backorder

bonzobanana

I don't think it does Chain Reaction any credit to give such similar names to bikes as can be seen here it can be confusing to customers and end up thinking you are getting a better bike at a bargain price. It's the same naming style as cars but a bike is a much more casual purchase than a car and the buyer is much more likely to order the wrong product. Getting decent components on a bike as standard is much, much cheaper than buying a cheaper model and upgrading normally. I've seen many forum postings where people have a bought a bike for lets say £500 and then spent £1200 on upgrades over the first year (wheels, new suspension etc) but a bike with the same upgraded components would have cost £1000 new and may even had a few other upgrades like an improved frame. Much better to save until you can afford the right bike or even use credit and pay the interest. Not only that, upgrading often destroys the warranty anyway.

HUKD voters strike again! I posted a basic electric bike and it's well over 400 degrees and rising. I then posted this much better electric bike with gears, folding frame and better design for £50 more and it's gone cold. Can anyone explain? Anyone?

rubberduck

Thank you. Had a look around and this appears to be a good deal. I have bought one. Collect later. The gears and the ability to fold are worth and extra £50 over the other non-folding version which has reached around 400 heat. Thanks again.

c_1st

Hot vote from me, as it IS good value. No need to worry about cold votes, this link may not have been clicked-thru by many from the other thread. This is a great find for those of us looking for a cheap elec' bike - bonus that it's folding too 👌. Best wishes

bonzobanana

Very low end drivetrain and no handlebar height adjustment limits the suitability for various height riders. It's an ok price but not great in my opinion. Not sure it deserves to go cold though.

StanLaurel

No worries Wilson. Have you checked the pads for signs of wear? It might be that if the brakes haven't been used very much then they need to be used some more so that the pads can bed in properly. Find some hills /gradients and start to put them to use (check that the brakes actually work before you go flying down a hill.....) If the pads are resin ones then changing the pads to sintered ones if you still aren't happy with the performance of the M446s could also be worth considering. Shimano brakes generally have a good reputation across the range, but if it remains a problem then check out problem solving methods on the internet/ YouTube, or get them checked out at a bike shop. Even though the SLX brakes are considered a good price, £100 is still a fair amount of money to fork out, especially if you can get your existing brakes to work properly. Good luck!

wilson1973

Hi sorry it took so long to get back to you but I was thinking ahead and have only had the second hand bike delivered it was in mint condition as it had hardly ever been used the brakes that came with the bike are Shimano M446 hydraulic disc brakes at the moment there is loads of movement of the brake lever and the brakes aren't that sharp

Tried out some similarly packaged ones from ebay a while ago, they were dreadful. The plastic was brittle, a yellow bit broke off within a day and the whole of the front broke off within a couple of uses. Avoid these - the £10 that Shimano charge seems excessive, but this isn't a suitable alternative.

It doesn't have pedals at this price, it you don't understand that then its obviously not for you. :p

rugbymad76

Definitely the Cube for me, I prefer the look of the Cube (personal preference I'm aware) more importantly hydraulic discs over mechanical. Down side is a 105 over Ultegra although Planet X have skimped on chainset etc. In reality not much deference between the them, have 6800 Ultegra on best bike and 5800 105 with discs on my winter ride, not much difference in operation and feel, a few grams in weight and a bit of snob value if you buy into that kind of thing.

whatyadoinsucka

I’d go cube personally full 105 kit whereas the planetX has got a FSR crankset, plus the brakes are shimano not avid, do like that grey as well, it’s a kg heavier but 9kg ok for me when I could do with losing a few legs that’d be a few pies cheaper than paying hundreds on a bike

bonzobanana

Just thinking about it again, many carbon bikes are weighed without pedals but sounds like you have included pedals in the weight so could be significantly below 9kg although weighing without pedals is a bit ridiculous.

bonzobanana

So it might just drop below 9kg for smaller frame sizes. I think it's normal to get such pedals for a carbon bike. Some brands will not supply pedals at all and others will just supply basic/cheap types to get you going. Fuji-ta are pretty decent carbon frames, I think Giant and Merida are better but I'd see fuji-ta as better than Quest composites that Trek use for the mid to entry level carbon frame bikes and Canyon use. Unfortunately carbon frames being a very hands on manufacturing process, quality consistency doesn't match metal frames so always worth regularly inspecting the frame. Hope you enjoy the bike.

Geodesic

Yes I weighed it myself after building it - 9.1 kg is for the largest 59 cm frame version. It came very well packed and appears to be in perfect condition. The two things I didn't like are the perspex spoke protector which looks generic and cheap (easily removed after checking gear stops are correct or replaced with a better looking one if you so wish) and the Wellgo pedals/foot cages which are mostly black plastic - I'll be replacing these with clipless pedals. Other than these items the bike has a high quality, solid feel. It comes with the tools you need (3 Allen keys and a spanner to mount the pedals). The only thing not supplied that you will need to get going is a pump.

bonzobanana

That's exactly what I would have expected and puts it right in the same territory as other fuji-ta carbon framed bikes from various manufacturers back in 2015. Did you weigh it yourself if so general opinion of the bike and quality?

Geodesic

This bike is 9.1 kgs when fully assembled.
