- CX/gravel/commuting rolling chassis
This looks cheap although headtube seems a little short. £380 for frame, headset and tubeless wheels etc seems hard to ignore. Great “here I am colour” for fighting it out in traffic

15mm bolt thru front and rear is a bit odd, is it not?
Quite aggressive low head tube, the medium frame has the same reach as my 58cm Cube Attain GTC Pro Disc, but the head tube finishes almost 7cm lower! 😯
Bit limiting at 35mm tyres.
How about https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/FOPXFM/planet-x-the-full-monty-carbon-gravel-fork and a white/celeste https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/FRPXFM/planet-x-the-full-monty-alloy-gravel-frame for £200?
Bish Bash Bosh frameset from £500? https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/FROOBBB/on-one-bish-bash-bosh-carbon-adventure-gravel-frameset
Or splash out on an Space Chicken frameset for £600? https://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/FROOSPCKN/on-one-space-chicken-650–700c-carbon-gravel-framesetPosted 1 year ago

With the headset and seatclamp and wheels and not having £20 p&p it seems better value than the planet xPosted 1 year agojamiepSubscriber
I’ve had one since May. Somehow, it is a repainted Bowman Foots Cray
“Headtube will be short compared to a proper road bike because the fork will be longer to fit more tyre in. ”
Correct. Tyre clearance is essentially limited by the rim width rather than the fork. 2.4 would fit. With the supplied wheels, I’ve pushed it and fitted a 1.9. Without mudgurds, rear takes up to 42mm, limited by tightness around the BB area.
15mm front and rear axles make it feel very stiff. Geometry is pretty aggressivePosted 7 months agopauleMember
I’ve got one, and it’s great! running 37mm slick on the back with plenty of room – a 42mm gravel tyre fits but is a tad close.
Slacker head angle feels spot on on rougher stuff, and is still ok on the road. whole thing is surprisingly quick – doesn’t feel it but covers ground rapidly =!Posted 7 months ago
