- Planet x tt bikes limited options
They seem to offer strange and limited options on some builds 11 -28 cassettes on a tt bike and wide 53/39 rings with no bigger option also only offer short cranks .I keep thinking about hiting the buy buton but would need to change to much .180mm cranks ,55 t ring and a closer cassette for a start.Posted 4 years ago
They offer bikes so cheap by massive bulk buying groupsets (look at the amount of RED shifters they were trying to shift last year!). If your bulk buying you buy a size that 99% of people are happy to use, your the 1%. If they started to match lengths to bike sizes etc. then they would be a fair bit more expensive.
Anyway, have you atcually asked? they do offer the ability to switch parts if you ask.Posted 4 years agobrantMember
Possibly I dont know if upgrades are available .I appreciate that im tall and use huge gears so may not be easy to cater for
I can’t remember ever stocking 180mm cranks, but I’m sure our sales team could put something custom built for you, with FSA or Shimano kit I’d hope.
However, a quick whizz around the B2B sites suggests even getting a 180mm crankset doesn’t seem that easy right now.Posted 4 years agocarlosMember
When I bought my PX SL Pro and wanted to upgrade the crankset all it took was a phone call to ask and agree a few extra ££ for the one I wanted. I’m sure the prices are keen and priced well for the spec (just like any brand) but there is always room to upgrade and any half decent shop will let you.Posted 4 years ago
