Recently we launched a bespoke custom build and bike spec advice service under the title "Ask Big Frank". You'll find your personal link to this cycling legend via the homepage Skype button or by emailing [email protected] However, whilst Big Frank Campbell is a household name to all involved in Planet X and Irish cycling we thought we should take some time to tell our customers a little more about him, and why he is the perfect man to give your bike build choices the individual attention they deserve...

Make no mistake Frank Campbell is a true legend of cycling. With a pedigree of 30 years in the cycling industry his reputation for integrity and knowledge are now only matched by his girth and infectious enthusiasm for cycling.
Frank Campbell with the Irish National Road Team
Frank has been involved with Planet X for well over 10 years now, first as our Irish agent, then as our pro team manager. He left us to become the Irish National Road Team Manager and has mentored the current cream of Irish cycling from innocent young pups to international superstars. Nicholas Roche, top ranked Irish pro rider, is unequivocal in his praise: "I owe it all to Frank- its like having an extra gear! I love that man so much that I would gladly fly to the UK to the Planet X showroom and sign a load of books and not ask for a penny!"

There is currently a Facebook campaign- initiated by Roche and Radioshack pro team rider Philip Deignam to "bring back big frank" to manage the Irish Olympic road team. We don't want him to go, but when your country calls you… So- be quick, if you are after a custom build, some pro level advice, from surely the BIGGEST character in cycling- then the clock is ticking, get in there before the pull of the Olympics is too great!

Big frank- you had us at hello…
