Hi all,

After real life kinda got in the way of training I'm feeling the urge to get back out there, so back here in the comfort of the Tritalk massive and wondered if anyone has anything good or bad to say about the "rebranded Chinese frame" EC-130E that Planet X has to offer?

It seems to have good reviews, but am also aware that its never going to be on level par with some frames 4/5 times the price, so either first hand experience would be great or someone who has actually seen one.


Thank you

Good friend who I ride with regularly has one as does his wife, and another friend also has one

We both have a similar FTP (280W) and weight (75kg) although he is a bit taller than me and 10 years younger. Overall his performance on the bike is pretty much the same as mine (I ride a Canyon CF SLX), I have beaten him on a number of hill climbing TT's.... the last one by just 4 seconds (7km 750m elevation).

I know that he has been really pleased with his bike, I wouldn't swap my Canyon for one, however, the difference between the Planet X and a really really good high end bike will be pretty marginal, maybe 1-2%

I had one for about a year, absolutely loved it, never had a single problem with mine, and it is was a very fast bike, well worth buying one Smile
