Full Description

Description

At the heart of the Planet X London Road is a hand welded 6061-T6 alloy frame designed for the widest range of riding. A carbon fork minimises weight, provides confidence-inspiring handling and helps soaks up unwanted road buzz. Weve kitted the frame out with bottle cage mounts, fixings for rear panniers and provision for full-length front and rear mudguards. Add in enough frame clearance for 37mm wide tyres and you have a bike that soaks up bad and busy road surfaces and is ready for all weather conditions.

If youre hoping to venture further afield youll find the London Road the ideal companion for an extended expedition. Cross country capable we know customers who have loaded up with panniers and frame bags for intercontinental adventures. The London Road is supremely versatile, easy handling and ready to roll. Its our most loved alloy framed bicycle.

SRAMs APEX1 groupset is great on any bike, but on the London Road, its simply brilliant. A single front chainring pairs up with an 11-42 tooth rear cassette to give you a wide gear spread thatll help you power up any climb and sprint down the descents. A clutch equipped rear mech and specially profiled chainring teeth ensure you won't drop a chain even when pushing hard off-road. Powerful Avid disc brakes give you total control in all weathers on any road surface, theyll even bring you safely and quickly to a full stop when youre loaded up with a full set of panniers and frame bags. With great ergonomics, quiet operation and a reputation for durability that is unheard of at this price SRAM APEX1 is perfect for the London Road- or any road.

Weve finished off your new London Road with a set of Gipiemme Roccia Equipe wheels. These tried and trusted 700c wheels are designed for disc brake bikes, they work with skinny fast road tyres and grippy larger off-road rubber. The Gipiemme Roccia Equipe wheels are built tough to handle the worst that the urban jungle and the backcountry can throw at them.

Because you enjoy commuting, touring, winter training, cyclocross racing or adventure riding, there are loads of reasons why youll fall in love with a Planet X London Road. Almost every town in the UK has a London Road - and so should you!
