We were really impressed with the quality of our most recent Planet X bikes. So we’re pleased to announce that we have some brand new framsets on the way from Planet X in a few different sizes. Here’s what Planet X have to say about their latest generation frame:
The RT57 boasts bang up-to-date features like a tapered steerer tube and BB30 bottom bracket. A tapered steerer stiffens up the whole front end of the bike, improving handling at speed and through corners. It also makes for a larger down tube and the BB30 bottom bracket helps at the other end too, improving the torsional rigidity of the frame and increasing its stiffness against pedalling. What it all adds up to is a quick, stiff road frame suited to fast sportives, shorter Audax rides and racing on quick, twisty courses. It eats hills for breakfast and your mates for lunch and dinner!
