    Planet X track frame

    I read the other thread concerning it, but I was just wondering if anyone has had any experience with them. I'm planning on using it as my race bike, probably not too much on the street (don't want to rattle my teeth out haha). Just wondered if anyone has seen any at the track, or know anything about the performance. Thanks.

    Someone rides one at our track and its a good looking bike. Definitely race worthy. Its one of the few Alu track bikes I've ever been tempted by (big sucker for matt black frames).

    I think the only downside is that the frame can only be used with the matching seat post.

    I also have the hots for the new Rapha/Condor team track bikes which are rather lovely, especially astounding considering they're modern Alu track frames.

    For the curious, the Planet-X track bike info is here:

    Can't find any photos online for the Rapha/Condor frames but they're rather striking.

    Somehow I have a problem believing that that fork weighs 56 grams Maybe 560? Or rather like 856..
