Not many people knew we used to make mountain bikes. Well we did, we made a lot, but eventually mountain bikes were shifted over to On-One, so we concentrated on making road bikes.
Our misunderstood triathlete Harry Wiltshire was in the office a few months ago, and we hatched a plan. We wanted a fast mountain bike, a mountain bike for when Lycra isn't wrong, but still a bike where you can mix it up on your local trails.
So we created the Dirty Harry. You can get it HERE!
"Now you know why they call me Dirty Harry: every dirty job that comes along."
You don't take Dirty Harry out for a jolly in the woods with your mates. Harry is there to serve pain out to your friends. And you.
Dirty Harry is a tear-your-legs off bike, a lactic acid bath, world of pain bike, a bike that will release buckets of endorphins, make you cry in pain and scream in joy.
Harry will make you attack the hills, up and down. If you aren't first to the top Harry won't be happy.
You don't want to make Harry unhappy do you?
Planet X returns to mountain bikes with a scorching fast high-performance 29er for adventure racers, endurance riders and cross-country. Dirty Harry combines the surface-conquering rolling power of 29-inch wheels with a featherweight carbon fibre frame and the quick handling that speed-orientated riders crave.
But Dirty Harry is no twitchy one-trick-pony, good only for tearing up fire roads. With a long top tube and wheels that shrug off rocks and potholes, Dirty Harry encourages you to whack through your limits, whatever the terrain.
Dirty Harry works best with a 100mm fork, the standard choice for endurance riding and adventure racers. Features include a tapered head tube for sharp handling and regular vertical dropouts for simplicity.
Named in honour of the misunderstood genius Harry 'Not quite as good as the Brownlees' Wiltshire.
"You've gotta ask yourself a question: 'Do I feel lucky?' Well, do ya, punk?"

Awww, hotness, will take one if you can get that guy to deliver it?
My name's Harry.
Been doing some research and found a chat forum that answers the bottom bracket (68mm) and sticker set (comes plain with stickers to apply if you wish) questions. Would love to know tyre clearance and weight of frame if possible Thanks
Hi, I'm looking at the Planet X Dirty Harry v On One Lurcher. To help would you be able to publish the frame weight for a Large 19 inch, the bottom bracket type (Press fit or 68/73 standard), tyre clearance at the rear and whether the frame comes in plain black, which looks great. Thanks
lETS SEE HOW FAST AN DIRTY HE/IT IS FROM LANGSETT -LADYBOWER AN BACK...
I certainly don't want to get swimming on the wrong 'channel' side of that particular Harry anyway
