Full Description

Description

At the heart of the Planet X London Road is a stunning high quality 6061-T6 alloy frame designed from the ground up for a wide range of riding. A beautiful carbon fork sheds extra weight, keeps steering intuative and helps soak up unwanted road buzz, too.

Almost every town in Britain has a London Road - hence the name for our 'do-it-all' frame and our London Road is just as at home anywhere in the world! Disc Brake equipped, this bike is one tough cookie and delivers faultless riding in all weather conditions. Sheffield's London Road is a busy, rough, commuter artery where survival is the name of the game. Designed from the ground up to combat the worst road surfaces, our London Road is ideal for road riding, adventure trails, commuting, and even touring with mudguard and panniers if the fancy takes you.

Featuring a stable, relaxed geometry which centres your weight on the bike and releives wrist and shoulder pressure, for better balance and more controlled handling. Weve also built in clearance for up to 40mm tyres, which provides extra cushioning from the larger air chamber in the tyre. This most natural and pure form of suspension allows you to venture off road, to explore country tracks and gravel paths.

Groupset: SRAM Apex 1 is a 1x 11 speed groupset that brings a host of great new features to the party. A single front chainring with 'Narrow-wide' tooth profile ensures chain retention. Add in the extra chain tension that comes from the 'clutch mech' design and you have the best chain security you can ride. SRAMs wide-range cassette to give you the maximum gear options for powering up and down the trails, whilst powerful Sram Level Hydraulic disc brakes give effortless stopping power and great modulation so you can finesse your braking efforts to suit the surface conditions. Apex 1 brings all of SRAM's cuting edge off-road technology to the entry level trail bike rider. There's an awful lot to love and a lot of new roads to ride.

Wheelset: Vision Team 30 Disc Now tubeless ready these are exceptionally solid wheels, perfect for competitive Cross Country, Cyclocross or general road riding. Based on our best selling 700c road wheel they come with an 11 speed capable rear hub so you have maximum options in what rear cassette you chose to run. The freehub is built with a steel body to handle the stresses of hardcore riding. With 4 oversized bearings in each rear hub, 2 in the hub shell and 2 supporting the freehub, it's unlikely that you'll need to take a look inside them any time soon. These amazing parts combine together create an outstanding wheelset, ready to battle any terrain!

Please Note: All customisable options will be fitted by our trained mechanics.

 

Finishing kit: weve capped this bike build off with high quality finishing kit from Italian aces Selcof, plus Selle Italia and Planet X. With a combined package of this quality, you're getting a truly excellent bike and amazing value for money.
