"Now you know why they call me Dirty Harry: every dirty job that comes along."
Here's Dave Haygarth, one of our sponsored riders, talking about his Dirty Harry build.
You don't take Dirty Harry out for a jolly in the woods with your
mates. Harry is there to serve pain out to your friends. And you.
Dirty Harry is a tear-your-legs off bike, a lactic acid bath, world of
pain bike, a bike that will release buckets of endorphins, make you
cry in pain and scream in joy.
Harry will make you attack the hills, up and down. If you aren't first
to the top Harry won't be happy. You don't want to make Harry unhappy
The sensible bit
Planet X returns to mountain bikes with a scorching fast
high-performance 29er for adventure racers, endurance riders and
cross-country. Dirty Harry combines the surface-conquering rolling
power of 29-inch wheels with a featherweight carbon fibre frame and
the quick handling that speed-orientated riders crave.
But Dirty Harry is no twitchy one-trick-pony, good only for tearing up
fire roads. With a long top tube and wheels that shrug off rocks and
potholes, Dirty Harry encourages you to whack through your limits,
whatever the terrain.
Dirty Harry works best with a 100mm fork, the standard choice for
endurance riding and adventure racers. Features include a tapered head
tube for sharp handling and regular vertical dropouts for simplicity.
Weighing in at 1158g for a medium frame
Named in honour of the misunderstood genius Harry 'Not quite as good
as the Brownlees' Wiltshire.
