I booked one out from leisure lakes as a demo bike and liked it so much, I called broadribbs on the way back from llandegla to buy one.
(Wouldn't buy one from leisurelakes as their service was appalling:( )


Absolutely stunning out on the trails:)

Wow. That looks ace. I was never a fan of the early Whyte bikes but the new ones look fantastic and ride really well from what I've heard.

Just a bit of an update on this.
I've done a few miles and have really m
Gelled well with the way it rides, confidence inspiring in pretty every way :)
I'm thinking of moving over to tubless tyres though and could do with a few pointers as I've never used them so any advice would be welcome. Image

Tubeless? Stans yellow rim tape, valves and jizz are all you need.
And a good pump...

Well I managed to crack it:(

Its covered under warranty and after waiting for a replacement in large for a while, threw a wobbler at ATB sales and have a new 1213 frame on its way.

They are even supplying a new set of forks in black so they match the new frame and all the orange finishing kit too.

Cant say fairer than that for trying to please the customer.

Pics to follow.
