I was really happy with the planet x but!

after 2 years started to get corrosion of the the paint! bubbling up and flaking off. Spoke to the guys at planet x and they told me to scrape away paint to make sure the damage was not more serious. So i did this and found it was only superficial. then they told me that it was out of the 2 year warranty and obviously would not replace frame (wish this was made more obvious before i started to scrape off paint!) Now i've been trying to look at resprays but as its a carbon alloy mix, its expensive. They did offer me a 15 % dicount off of a new frame but considering how much i had already spent with them......well lets just say i didn't take them up on their offer.

I did ask planet x if they would give me a better discount on a new frame if i returned the old frame to them. They never replied.

Suppose that will teach me to support the british cycling industry!

Cotic are superb by the way, the quality of their frames are fantastic and the cutomer service is A1, planet x take note!
