Ok so I was looking at getting a new road bike and noticed the Planet-X RT 58 Alu road bike currently being sold for £499 with a FULL Sram Apex 2x10 groupset inc brakes and chainset plus FSA wheels and finishing kit and an all up weight of just 8kg !!!.

Seems too good to be true. I reckon swapping over to some GP4000 and maybe a better saddle and I could have a sub 8kg road bike for less than £650

Any thoughts on this bike, Anyone have any experience with this bike/brand ?

    Buy it while it's still at this price it usually sells at £699.99 the only difference is you just don't get a choice to customise it.
    Take a look at the Readers Rides section on PX for owners impressions of the bike.

    Great bike for the money in my opinion. It could be had for £400 the other day with the 20% off codes being mentioned on here. I don't know if there are any still working?

    Buy it immediately. Fantastic value.
