Planet X

Just wondering if planet X bikes are any good? Was looking at Planet X N2A but can't find any good reviews?

    i think that for the money they make pretty good bikes, and wheels.

    you will find many p-x's at tris, duas, sportives and in clubs. they have a good rep, and certainly their tt/tri frames are well regarded for the value they offer. if you can find a place that stocks them for fitting (and some places do, i think) then it might help you get the right frame.

    I am riding a Planet X stealth  I got last year. I am very happy with it and its a lot of bike for the money.  Also very upgradable.

    px bikes are reasonable ways to buy groupsets but notvgreat for bikes. look to upgradde the frame and wheels sharpish unless you like teitchiness.

    I went to the Planet X showroom in Sheffield last week, and I can confirm that the N2A is light, and has a good spec at the price.  Was not bowled over by the quality of the frame though


    Was thinking of one myself; however I have recently been researching into Dolan bikes also, so you might want to check them out.  Good spec, but much much more customisable (spelling?).

    I have had my planet x pro carbon tour de france edition for nearly a year now. Th bike itself is great the showroom was great and the price was especially great. The only problem I have is with the tubular wheels (but the N2A comes with 50mm carbon clinchers). It must've been a new guy fitting them because they're not the best. 

    All in all very worth it!

    Twitchy, shoddy, cheap.

    Try it and other bikes around the same price. Having ridden far too many bikes for my own good PX are among the worst. It isn't a snobbery thing, I simply don't understand when £1k+ became a 'punt' instead of something to be based around testing, development and quality.
