collected the bike today and just been for a quick spin, happily it seems very good to ride - light enough to be easy up the hills and super stable and very fast coming back down. Can't wait for the weekend!
Why did I buy it? Simple: great reviews, designed and tested in the UK for UK riding conditions and probably the best spec you can get for £2k other than canyon (and I was a bit worried about the mail order thing).
I have several mates who ride Whyte and all of them rave about the ride and quality (lifetime guarantee onframes including bearings!). I've always been a gt fan and had an Ellsworth before, but they both suffered in UK mud.
I'll update when It's had a proper outing.
a bit light on retro rides right now!
