Anyone got any info on the new Sportive-minded bike from PX?
Like the stealth look, like the geo, like the price (£1500 with Force), but obviously nobody outside of PX has ridden one yet. On the PX facebook page they say Road.cc have just taken delivery of a tester, but up to a sub £2k price, I'm guessing with Red. Care to share any initial spoilers??

With just turning 30, I have decided to upgrade my basic alu framed/veloce 2008 road bike that serves as my only bike. Looking around the best deal appears to be the Planet X SL pro carbon. Would people recommend carbon over aluminium (currently tipping the scales @ 90kg)?
Is the SRAM red version worth the extra £300 over rival? Are there any other bikes around the £1000-1300 mark that people would recommend over the Planet X??
Sorry for all the questions, been looking for about 2 months and always seem to come back to the Planet X, just need to get up there and have a look!
