Strengths:    Lightweight, stiff, short rear end which is easy to toss around.

Weaknesses:    Weird disc tabs on rear, strange geometry.. seems short but has low standover

Bottom Line:   
Not a bad frame, planet x doesn't make these anymore it's hard to get customer support.

Strengths:    bmx geometry makes this one EASY mtb to control. i use an on one rigid fork to keep this quality moving on this piece. it has very unique welds which never fail to impress.

Weaknesses:    a hundred bucks for an extra INCH??? i chose the 's' model, but found it didnt require any futther inches. woulda been kinda nice to compare, but these things arent exactly cheap.

Bottom Line:   
this thing is nice! i dig the geometry, the colour, the quality and everything about it. everything you want on this frame can be done. the brits have found the way for mtbs, and im glad i picked upon it. leave the cookie cutter bikes for the rest of the populous. get on the planet!
