    Planet X frame - Roo???

    Post by Mick B on Wed Jan 06, 2010 11:36 am

    I am very tempted to pick up one of those Planet X TT frames Andrew B has in the bike piccy thread. My wife is visiting her brother in New York City in April so can bring it back for me as a pressie.

    Just a question. Are they the Karbona frames? The drop looks pretty big for a 76 degree seat post bike. I think Alex has ridden one. I currently have a 76 deg alum TT frame and my drop is bugger all, but the top tube is too long so may affect things a little.

    Anyone have any good or bad things to pass on before I pull the trigger.

    The blue one or the white one looks the goods,

    $US699 seems pretty good. Should I get a second seat post while I am at it to save stuffing around if I bust one?

    Mick,

    Just something for you to consider. I also just passed this info onto someone else on here looking a TT frames.

    The frameset pictured has External Cable routing. It's not a biggy but if you going to spend the $$$ you may as well get that sort of stuff. The Planet-X framesets look to be the same as the Karbona TT lite. If you visit the Karbona website and look for the Neo TT frameset that is the one i have posted in the "show us your ride" thread. They also have geometry on the website.

    If you cant find it i have the geometry sheet on file. If you send me your email address i can email it through.

    Dont get me wrong for that price that is a good deal but consider everything.

    See lucky I asked. Have never had internal cable routing and hadn't considered it. Anyone know of other US based mobs badging frames? I kind of liked the idea of a rarer look. You don't see many of the Planet X's, there must be other rare beasts on the US scene I could look at.

    What size are you after?

    I know of a BMC TT02 Frame set going (in large 568 TT )for a reasonable price.
