- Lets see your Planet X's!
I kid you not, the Nanolight was nicer to ride decent distances than the S-Works Roubaix I had before it and handled better than the Litespeed titanium frame I had before that. Not knocking either of them – supremely good frames in their own right, but I noticed a difference nonetheless. I ran similar wheels / drivetrain / finishing kit on them all and was really blown away with the PX. It punches waaaaaaay above its weight (and looks quite pretty for a plastic bike too). It was light, fast, confidence inspiring and fun to ride – highly recommended.
Saying all that… the F&F is up for grabs now because my Tripster ATR is getting all the use these days. There’s nothing that can touch that, but it’s a completely different animal to the PX and represents a change in focus in my riding more than anything.

Hora – have you ridden the Pro and found it flexy or just wary because of the reviews? I’m no lightweight (14.5 Stone) and don’t find mine in the least bit flexy, granted the old stock wheels (PX model c’s) were flexy and cornering and out of the saddle efforts caused the rims to rub on the brake blocks but since swapping them out for the Racing 5’s that no longer happens.Posted 4 years ago
See if they’ll let you have a test ride and find a couple of corners to chuck it round and then make your own mind up, i’m a cynic but reckon half of all bike reviews are cobblers anyway, if you rode this back to back with Greipels ultra stiff sprint machine then maybe you would notice a little flex, for normal real world use i’ve not noticed any.Posted 4 years agojuliansMember
