planet x stealth braze on mount

I just purchase a used planet x stealth pro carbon but didn't noticed until I decided to put a front derailleur on it that it is missing the mount that bolts onto the frame so I can connect the fd. Does anyone know where I would be able to purchase one or should I just contact Planet X? Thanks!

Having just looked at this frame, you will need to get the mount specifically for this frame. Some other mount of this type probably won't work, and a clamp for a round seat tube certainly won't work.

That is what I needed to know. I'll get in touch with Planet X. Thanks!

Must be looking at different models. The road bike stated a 34.9mm clamp diameter. The TT had a brazeon. I assumed he had the road frame.

So did your frame get made without a brazeon for the FD or are you just missing a screw?

I bought the frame used online and didn't notice until now that it didn't come with the braze on mount. It attaches to the frame with two bolts.

If you look at the Planet X website, the Stealth come with the braze on mount.

http://www.planet-x-bikes.co.uk/i/q/...frame-new-logo

As it was supplied without, would be going back to the seller, as what you have bought is incomplete.

For Planet X contact details

Definitely the tt frame. The guy I bought it from had it all built up. It also has the two holes where the mount bolts on to.
