Carbon Dream

After 2 years I am still extremely pleased with this bike. The only change is that I sold my large frame and bought a new medium frame. LOVE IT MUCH BETTER!!!The bike handles incredibly well on long rides, long climbs, fast descents, and full on sprints. The best part? I'm the only one in my area with one and it gets a lot of attention on group rides. Kudos to your engineering and production team in making such a great bike at a phenominal price!

    Winter project was to refine the comfort even more by adding new 2012 Campagnolo Centaur shifters replacing the older style Centaur shifters. Have not been out on the road as winter is bringing a lot of very cold weather and today we are in the middle of an epic sized blizzard. Rollers and other indoor training continues.

    2000 miles into the 2012 season, I completed the changeover to the new SL PRO frame (M). What an amazing differece from the Large. I feel so much better on this.

    As April is coming to a close, I am happy to say that I am well ahead of my mileage goal for 2012. I am up to 1044 miles and I am so very happy I made the decision to buy this bike. It is so comfortable and fast. At this pace I'll be over my 3k goal by a lot! Cheers

    March came in like a lion and delivered the first major snow of 2012 on the 1st. 12" of snow, followed by 3 inches of wet heavy last night. Roads are a mess for now. Back to the rollers. 428 miles (57 on the road) logged, so you know how cooped up I feel! But the joy is that the PX SL Pro is so smooth on the rollers! At this rate I'll have all my base miles and have not been on the road!

  • Paul

    I welcomed in 2012 with a 30 mile ride. The weather was quite nice (near 45deg F), but the roads were nasty. Oh well. Nothing like spending some quality time cleaning the bike! Back to the rollers for a couple of more months.

  • Paul

    Well 2011 is almost over and I am again relegated to riding inside for a while. When the roads are clear I'll venture back out. A little over 2K miles this year which is up from previous years. Can't wait for January 1st and starting my season again!

    I have to say that my century ride was fantastic! The bike had much more left than I did! I must have seen 300-500 or so riders on Sunday and I tried to do my best to make eye contact with most of them, but I was more interested in finding another Planet X. I didn't see another one! I felt really grat the whole ride, and again am still totally impressed with the way it feels on the road. It just eats up the miles comfortably! Thank you for all of your engineering efforts in making this a great bike!

    I posted new pictures becaus I bought new Profile Design bars with 70mm reach and 125mm drop, plus a new 90mm stem. Much more comfortable on the hoods and in the drops. Century ride next week. Will post something new then.

    Dan, Yes it is the large frame. I wanted to get as much headtube height as possible without too much top tube length. As it is, I am on going to be buying a Thompson 0 setback seatpost just to bring me in a little more. I was not looking for aggressive race posture on the bike. The handlebars in the picture are Ritchey WCS with the ergo drop. I actually have changed them out to a ITM bar with less reach. It wasn't that I wasn't happy, just wanted to have a better feel for the shifters. I loved the shaped drop though but the reach was a little much. So far I love this buke, but I haven't had much time on it. No real long rides to speak of yet.

    Beauty! I only recently stumbled upon Planet X. Seem like great bikes and great value. Is yours the Large size frame? Which handlebars are those? Are you happy with them?

  • Paul

    So I had to return the Zipp's that I had borrowed for a bit, that get's me back to just slightly above 16Lbs (16.53 actually), and now I am just waiting for all the snow to go away so I can get out and ride. Yes, I have a couple of different pictures showing the stem up and down and more and less spacer height, but it's the same bike. I have also replaced the old Campy Daytona rear mech with a carbon Centaur. Still want a new seatpost and brakes.

  • Paul

    Just installed new Keo Plus pedals and now it weighs in at 15.86 Lbs. What next. Thinking Thompson Masterpiece seatpost, and CNC brake calipers.

  • Paul

    Just messing around with some wheels and I got the weight down to 16.13 Lbs with pedals. My new Keo Classic should arrive next week. We'll see the difference between them and the old Look 396's.

  • Paul

    I accidentally voted a 1 star, I thought at least it should be 3 stars! Especailly with the Campy grouppo, DT Swiss Threat wheels (1400 grams) and that I built it myself. Yeah it's got one blue tire, but that shouldn't keep it from getting 3 stars.

  • Paul

    This is my first carbon bike and I really love the way it responds to my input. I love how it looks with the Campy carbon against the natrual carbon of the bike. At 16.8 Lbs with pedals, I know I could make this baby lighter. It cllimbs like a dream and descends without fear.
