    RE: carbon forks.

    I have seen several Cyfac randonneuses with carbon forks and front rack eyelets. I don't know if they would sell you one on its own but they can certainly manufacture it.

    There's a lot worse on the HHSB thread...

    Same could be said for a Cannondale built by Evans or any mailorder/big store bought bike... Bit of a moot point really.
    The bikes are good when set up correctly.

    You're completely missing the point. In order to set the derailleur properly we had to replace the clamp, because the one that was specced was not fit for purpose. They knew it and put it on anyway. A Cannondale would only need a PDI.

    No one is going to admit pubicly they are a bit bored with their business. Overheads, after all, are nothing new. But again, speculation.

    What a load of shit. Planet x are a bike company (what the fuck else do they make or sell?!).
    They make great bikes for reasonable money - which people have ridden to national championship wins on the track, road and TT's - there is absolutely NOTHING wrong with them.

    Their assembly can be shockingly bad. A chap came to my old shop with his brand carbon machine complaining about the front shifting. The clearance between the (23c) tyre and the seat tube was so small the tyre was rubbing against the front derailleur clamp when it was set-up properly. Finding another, thinner clamp being obviously time-consuming the mechanic decided to rotate the clamp a bit, messing-up the shifting in the mean-time. But hey, at least it was not rubbing. That's the sort of corners they take.
