Bike Stolen - Need Replacement

Well, my Planet X has been stolen from the secure underground work carpark where I had it locked up for the winter! Not the greatest news, but does give me an excuse to shop for something nice and new.

I have three options that I can think of and would appreciate input

Get another Planet X - I just had the basic 999 carbon frame before, so upgrade a bit to about £1500 Stealth.

2nd, Evans have the Scott CR1 Plasma Pro 2008 on sale for 2k, which looks like a good buy

3rd, go all out and get the Quintana Roo Lucero from Slane Cycles for 2.4k

I'm going to do my first Ironman next year and so figure I deserve something reasonably decent. The question is - how much faster will the Quintana make me go, is it worth the extra 1k from just a suped up Planet X?

Any comments appreciated

    Bummer armstrong,

    hope they catch the %$£#.: .

    No chance of finding it back?? (surveillance cam or so?).

    Just to put a big spanner in the works.... if I were you and I was going to spend £2.5 I would go for Felt B2... just another option.
