Whyte 729 vs 629 - worth the £500 difference?
Everything just a bit better by the looks of things, whether that actually worth the extra £500 I can't tell, but I know I'd prefer the Reba to the XC-28 fork right from the word go. BUT if that all that was 'wrong' with the spec in your eyes, it maybe worth buying the 629 and a set of cheap mail order reba's & flogging the XC-28 to get some money back, would cost a lot less than £500...
Being a small company they obviously don't have the buying power of the likes of giant/Spesh/et all, but I imagine will have priced it as competitively as they can...
Tried a 729 and liked how it handled a lot, and so bought the 929 - would have gone for the 729 if I didn't get the 929.
Thanks zippy. Hadn't really looked at the 120mm ones, I see there is the 901 at £1200, with a recon fork - guess that is somewhere between the xc32 and the reba?
EDIT oops, that's 26"
err kinda, but as the 6/729 are 29er's and the 901 a 26er, not quite...
Yes, my mistake, just looked at yours on the Whyte site and it was in the same section!
Back to what you said though, I keep bikes for a long time and whilst I'm perfectly capable of swapping bits I'm not particularly inclined to, so maybe it makes sense to spend a little bit more for the 729.
Makes for an easier life, hopefully all those 'little' improvements will mean its the better bike longer term
