We got to check out Whyte bike’s 120mm travel full carbon full suspension bike. Whyte is making it’s first foray into the U.S. and they’re doing it with a lightweight splash. The bike comes in at a miserly 22 lbs fully built.
How’d it get down to 22lbs? Think carbon, lots of carbon: frame, fork, shock, rims… everything carbon. It’s beautiful.
Some unique pieces that makes the Whyte different is the seatpost tube. Instead of having the gap at the top, Whyte instead made a small rectangle insert and a unique seatpost collar that pushes a piece to tighten on the seatpost.
Once Peter is finished building the bike we’re going to have Tim Scissors ride it and give you a ride report later this weekend.
