You may have noticed that it got dark a little earlier on Saturday. That is because I took my new Planet X Exocet frame out of its packaging. The matt carbon finish (no weave; it looks like a lump of pencil lead) with darker grey graphics and black everything else just seems to absorb light.
Once it’s built and ridden a bit (with lights obviously) I’ll let you know how it rides, but initially it looks a very serious bit of kit. The super steep seat angle and low front-end (bearing races are built into the frame to take a few more millimetres off the stack height) give the impression that its design is all about function over form.
First race on it will be in 2 weeks time so I’ll need to get it built and get some miles in the slightly different position before then.
that's about the coolest thing i've ever seen. very 'mad max'.
