Frame: Planet X Superlight Pro Carbon - Medium
Forks: Easton EC90 SLX
Seatpost: Easton EC90
Saddle: Selle Italia SLR Gel Flow
Stem: Deda Newton
Bars: Deda Newton
Shifters: Shimano 105 10 Speed
Brakes: Shimano Ultegra
Chainset: Shimano 105 Compact
Front & Rear mech - Shimano 105
Chain: SRAM 1051
Cassette: Shimano Ultegra 11-28
Wheels: Novtaec Hubs and Rims (same as Easton EA70's but with bladed spokes)

Was surprised at just how small the BB to seat tube was when the frame came as hadn't seen that measurement as bought it based on the top tube length and was lucky as the large would have been too long. (5ft 10 with a 33 inch leg and a short body)

    The blue and the black ec90 forks go well together.

    Good choice of bike :)

    Nice looking PX... Very classy and not as common in blue.
    How do you find it?
    I'm 6ft with a 34 inside leg and struggled with the large, It just didn't seem to fit me right.

    Well had my first 20 mile first commute on it today and being my first full carbon road bike its amazing how much more comfortable is.

    Size wise It seems perfect and glad I didnt go for the large as it would have been too long unless I ran a silly short stem.

    Only things I had to change from picture was saddle down 1/4 inch and moved the hoods/levers down abit and now feels perfect.
