    No longer has R2C shifters on as they dont actually work on the front mech for some reason? reverted back to friction shifter which is a bit better

    Hi Lee No wheel rubbing experienced,the frame is solid, no flex. you have to make sure that the wheel is in exactly straight in the dropouts tho. I make sure the Q/R is pretty tight aswell to make sure there is no slipping

    Hi Carl Have you experienced any wheel rubbing on your frame when getting out of the saddle? I am contemplating upgrading to Hed Jet 6, which are 23mm. Appreciate your views.

  • Max

    Thanks! So I guess it shouldn't make any difference, whether only the tire is 23mm or the whole rim, as it is on HED Jet 6/9. Maybe someone from Planet X can confirm this? Otherwise I'll just have to try and see :-)

    Hi I use 23mm continental 4000 on the sram wheels with no problems, I think the Planet x wheels have 19mm tyres tho

  • Max

    Hey, very nice bike! Are you using 23mm tires on the wheels? Are you experiencing any trouble (e.g. rubbing) in the rear end?? I am looking at purchasing HED wheels with my exocet and I am a bit concerned, since PX recommends nothing more than 21mm. Have fun with your white lightening :-)
