- PSA – Planet X London Road frameset for £150
As above, silver only but all sizes. Bargain.
I know there’s a few folk on here been looking at them, this could be all the justification you need!Posted 4 years agoburnsybhoyMember
I’m 5ft 10″ and I have a just received medium sized full bike. I ordered the flat bar as a commuter bike with a view to sticking drops and shifters on at a later date along with some knobbly tires for some CX/Adventure.
Compared the geo against my 54cm Supersix Evo, which fits me perfectly and the medium London Road looked the closest match. I know the Supersix is race geometry and this isn’t a race frame so I looked for the few measurements that were most important to me.Posted 4 years agolennyhenryMember
Having only ridden mountain bikes, I’m a little out of touch with this kind of thing but would love to give one a go.Posted 4 years ago
Could anyone give a rough idea of how much it would cost to build a complete bike around the frameset?
Looking at budget components and second hand where possible but have no idea how much I should expect to pay for wheels, brakes etc
Would I be able to build one up easily enough for sub £500 or would it make more sense just to go for a complete build? (http://www.planetx.co.uk/i/q/CBPXLDNRDAPEXFB/planet-x-london-road-argento-sram-apex-flat-bar-urban-bike)
Looks like a road groupset on the built bike, so may indicate 130mm rear? Anyone confirm. PlanetX/On One are crazy in the lack of technical details they include on their web site, after all most people are having to buy without actually trying the frame. Needs accurate reach and stack as well as frame hub widths.Posted 4 years ago
Looks like large if flat bar and medium with drops at 5’10”.
Headset not included, bought the £40 fsa caged bearing one from planet x which was utter junk and an absolute bitch to get the crown race on, so much so i ended up chipping the forks !!!!!Posted 4 years ago
in the end i got a lifeline (sealed bearings) one from wiggle for £19 which is excellent quality
I am slowly building up the justification in my head now, it would be a “long term build”, flogging off stuff to cover the costs, by winter I could have it setup running 1×9/10 old XT cranks, pair of spare hubs rebuilt with 622 rims, cheapest finishing kit I can find… I could happily live with silver. And it removes many of the headaches I was going to have getting an old steel MTB frame talking to discs and 700c wheels… The kaffenback fork I bought for that project could go on my commuter fixie before winter meaning I get a better front brake for that too…
DH bike will be going on eBay in pieces, Parts from the SS too (the PX would replace that for winter duties)…
It’s looking like my drop barred bikes will outnumber my flat bared ones by quite a margin… How did that happen?Posted 4 years ago
