Springing the changes, here's a refresh on our awesome value RT57 model for the Spring training you've got ahead.
Hand made for us with top quality Mitsubishi high modulus carbon fibre, the RT57 frame and fork offers amazing performance at a weight that's unprecedented. Hovering around 1kg, for a "real" frame weight, you will not find better in this price range.
The groupset powering this build is SRAM's Rival range. Offering performance developed from the Tour De France winning SRAM Red groupset, Rival offers incredible shifting and braking performance with it's Double Tap shifters and profiled sprockets to ensure perfect gear changes.
To further equip this performance frame set, we've chosen Italy's finest, with the "home of the bicycle" offering parts from major Italian manufacturers. The FSA Gossamer BB30 crankset with 50/34 rings gives you wide range of compact gearing which matches perfectly to the SRAM 11-26 cassette. It's road fast, but offers you enough low end to get up the climbs you'll need, retaining the close ratios that make for good paced fast riding.
More FSA in the cockpit area, with bar, stem, seat post coming from their Gossamer range, with our comfortable pro-use cork bar tape giving you the grip you control you need. FSA Gossamer Pro brakes help haul the bike down to a pace and control speed with quality dual pivot performance.
Classic Italian tyre brand Vittoria are responsible for the Zaffiro slick tyre in a comfortable 25c size, fitted to FSA's RD-60 wheel set.
Our buying power and your trust in us makes this bike possible, only from Planet X where we strive harder to give you the value and performance you need. Stocks are limited, but purchase is available on Cyclescheme and other bike-to-work schemes.

All frame size recommendations are approximate. A good fit will also depend on the correct choice of stem length, correct bike set-up for the rider and riding style.
Correct frame size choice can vary greatly with riders' torso length. If you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for a slightly shorter stem. If you think you are borderline between sizes, and you have longer legs and a shorter torso, go for the smaller frame size. If you have shorter legs and a longer torso, go for the larger frame size to get the extra top tube length.
As the frame sizes increase, so does the length of the head tube. If you are inflexible or perhaps have a history of back problems, consider going for a larger frame size. This will increase the relative height of the handlebars making the position less “extreme”. The larger frame will also have a longer top tube, so you’ll need to compensate for this with a shorter stem.
