I bought pretty abused planet x frameset a while ago but never had a chance to build till now so i bought couple bits and here it is.
Doesn't look in too bad nick! What are your plans?
I took some bits of my brothers bike and here it is. I still need to buy a chain and a cog but it is almost ready to roll.
I'm going to build some carbon wheels for it and get a cheap genetic tibia cranks with miche chainring for now. And I already have ordered china carbon saddle. Later i have plans to upgrade crankset to a new rotor aldhu and probably im going to get a ritchey superlogic stem.
I found a chain in my parts bin and built it for a track session that is coming this weekend. Chain was cut very short but it was just enough of it left to fit. Surprisingly the wheel don't even rub.
I used to race one of these, loved it, very handy frame for the price. It was plenty enough bike for outdoor track leagues, indoor sprint and pursuit.
Mine won plenty of races and it wasn’t the frame holding me back when I didn’t win!
I always thought it suited a pair of nice wheels- 4 spoke front looked bad ass
Things are moving slowly but i'm moving to another flat soon and that means cheaper rent and more bike parts. Starting with new 130mm stem and some carbon wheels. And for now i'm trying to get comfortable so here it is a proper slamage for my it with 3d printed top bearing cover.
Also i've bought 2015 giant defy 5 for my girlfriend. A cheapest small roadie i could find. It has claris 8sp and aluminum fork but it was barely ridden it was like a proper barn find stored in someones shed covered in dust. I have it cleaned and ready for rebuild and it should receive some major upgrades along with planet x. The first stage is to convert it to 1x8sp with flatbar and make it rideable and comfy for my girl and later i should make it lighter by replacing everything i can with carbon.
Don't worry about formatting, just type in the text and we'll take care of making sense of it. We will auto-convert links, and if you put asterisks around words we will make them bold.
