    Do you have any links to these views please? Have you actually tried them out and not just a 5 minute ride around the block?

    Again do you have any information to support this? Links or anymore hearsay much appreciated?

    "Developed and patented by the R&D team at our carbon factory"

    "our boffins have been hard at work trying to improve our lightest carbon frame"

    Yet here,

    http://www.bikeradar.com/forum/viewt...r=asc&start=60

    Dave Loughran the owner of PX states that the new nanolight frame is an open mould made by Xpace in China.

    Info on brakes is only hearsay, I don't have them on either my PX or On-One bike. However, I've yet to ride a bike with single pivots that are better than dual pivots, such as Shimano Ultegra or SRAM Red, both of which I have ridden more than just round the block.

    Cheers Dom, so the frame should be exclusive to PX in the UK. I'm guessing it's "their carbon factory" if they are paying someone large sums of money. Nothing misleading there. After all it is just cleverly worded sales patter, what matters is how it rides.

    Very nice Mr B.




    After Hurstys recommendation, im seriously considering this. "you won't see a bike anywhere with those components for that price, German built as well, solid bike for sure"

    Just a shame about the wierd bars on the handlebar.
