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 more relaxed geometry (adapted from our legendary RT-58 sportive frame), the usual frontal weight associated with road bikes is actually moved further backward, off your shoulders and wrists, to bring the center of gravity closer to you. This gives better balance and more controlled handling. Weve also built in clearance for up to 40mm slick tyres or 37mm knobbies, 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.

Shed the mudguards, though, and in a flash youve a frame that's equally at home on the weekend Club run or cyclocross race, as endorsed by our sponsored cyclocross racer, CrossJunkie Alan Dorrington.

With a package of this quality, you're getting a truly excellent bike and amazing value for money.

  • High quality 6061 aluminium alloy frame and carbon forks
  • British 68mm standard bottom bracket
  • Use: Road riding, adventure, commuting, touring, gravel, cyclocross
  • Mudguard and pannier mounts
  • Weight: frame, 1540g, forks 780g, total 2320g
  • Tyre clearance: up to 40mm (ideal with our Gravel Road BSC Type 1 tyres)
  • Frame Essentials

    Don't forget your new frame essentials and spares to get you up and rolling

    Bought my London Road sl a month ago, to say I am impressed is an understatement!! It is fantastic. I have ridden it from one side of the uk to the other during the chase the sun ride and it performed faultlessly. The finish of the frame was perfect and it was delivered exactly when they said it would be. Five stars is not enough to give to this bike. I now ride it more often than my bikes that cost 6/7 times the amount.

    Fijne klantenservice die snel reageert. Na een probleem opgemerkt te hebben aan de Planet X heb ik contact opgenomen en het probleem werd snel en vakkundig opgelosd.

    Cannot really fault it. Being used for daily commute and the occasional cyclocross or road spins. Does really well in pretty much any situations. Most of my mates are quite impressed and considering buying one.

    There was a defect on the Forks of the frame I purchased and the delay in replacing it meant that I missed my window of opportunity to build this into a bike of my choice at the time and now due to work commitments which have just ended and hopefully I should be able to assemble it be the end of November

    Habe den Rahmen im Sale relativ gnstig erstanden. Farbgebung ziemlich hsslich, ansonsten relativ gut verarbeitet. Schweinhte sind nicht perfekt, was der Funktion bis jetzt aber keinen Abbruch tut. Bin 180cm und fahre Gre L. Mit Dropbar und 100mm Vorbau bekommt man eine alltagstaugliche, nicht zu sportliche Sitzposition. Fahre breite Slicks 32-622 mit Schutzblech und Gepcktrager. Mit Gepcktasche wird es es fr die Ferse hinten etwas eng.Fr den Sale-Preis in Ordnung- solides Teil, ansonsten nichts besonderes.

    The frame that I received was badly finished and had to be machined in order to get the rear axle to fit. Also, a bottle mount boss had faulty threads and was loose. The customer service agent seemed to have no technical knowledge of the product at all and failed to offer any help. Hence, I resorted to a local machinist to solve the problem.

    Bought this frame to do a build for a friend. Just a few issues. BB shell needed to be rechased and the paint work is not as robust as others I've worked with. Apart from those issues I still think it's a good value frameset.

    Website is a mess and customer support doesnt have a clue, if they reply at all. I expressed concerns in the past when I recieved a carbon frame that had a crack near the headtube. Looking at a single foto I provided they were like "Nah, you'll be fine". A reputable dealer would have taken that alot more seriously as it could result in catastrophic failure and life threatening injuries.I like PlanetX because of the products, prices and value for money you get. But once they've made a sale they dont give a damn if you live or die. If I ever make it to Sheffield I will be sure to hold them responsible. But as I live in Sweden, I'm easy to ignore.

    Dont let the description fool you. This is not just some boring "urban frame" This frameset is a great choice for a gravelbike/adventure bike aswell. Looking at detailed geometry specs of various such bikes you will realize this comes very close to big brand gravel bikes like the Salsa Warbird. But since its not marketed as such, it doesnt have the pricetag of such bikes.Basically its the cyclocross bike most people that buy a cyclocross should buy intstead. A solid road bike that can handle some offroad. A cyclocross is built for cyclocross and doesnt do other things that well they are also built with the knowledge that a cyclocross race only lasts up to 1 hour.

    Product is best value for the price. have build a 30 speed 105 driven gravel bike which does it perfectly. Frame is light and stiff. No problems to build a good bike. Bought another on for an 8-speed commuter - the best bike build so far.
