Planet X Blurb & Specs
The new Planet X Codeine 27.5 has not just been a case of shrinking everything down by a couple of inches We assessed every aspect of the Codeine design to extract the maximum benefit from the new 27.5 wheel size. Its lighter, faster, stiffer and better-looking than previous generations. Weve also increased suspension travel to make it more of an animal – now its a true Enduro monster!
27.5 inch wheels carry less rotating mass than 29ers. This means they turn faster, giving more nimble handling. The Codeine 27.5 is quicker through technical single-track, with a light feel at the bar. The back end is more compact and supremely flickable; a shorter rear triangle tucks the rear wheel up beneath the rider. With more weight over the tyre contact patch theres more traction to power you up the trail, whilst the rear suspension soaks up the lumps without a hint of pedal-induced bob. But its with the nose of the new Codeine pointed downwards that youll notice the biggest change.
Suspension: accepting and ideally suited to 160mm travel forks.
Price now INCLUDES Marzocchi 53 S3C2R rear air shock.
The new Codeine 27.5 is ready help you realise your potential on your local trails. Its a true all-mountain monster that can tackle anything, from steep drags up winding fire roads, to bombing your local Northshore features. One bike to rule them all – youre going to ride this until it hurts, and then ride some more.

Various Kona Bass review gives this little thrasher good marks, maybe not as sophisticated as some newer frames but the traditional kona 4 bar linkage is easy to ride and easy to get familiar with.
Reduced from £1200 – the Kona Bass is a bargain at £449. Yes its 3 years old, yes konas are not everyone’s cup of tea, but this frame is fantastic for the price and a dependable little thrasher for the money. Konas also tend to keep there price well so should you wish to upgrade in a few years you should be able to resell with not too much of a loss.
