|Adventurous 650b road bike. Perfect for the rough roads of Scotland.|
Bought new from Billy Bilsland’s in April 2018 and has done about 3000 miles.
Full spec is available on the Whyte website but I’ll give you the headlines. Best part about the bike is the unique geometry with a low bottom bracket and slacker than normal head angle. The 500mm bars make it super controlled on the descents and the large volume tyres soak up all the bumps, you’ll be gliding past your mates when the road gets rough.
I have added the SKS Bluemells and upgraded the rear brake from the standard mechanical hydro hydrid TRP HR/RD to a full hydro SRAM Force. Didn’t do the front since it would be more expensive with the shifter but front brake works fine. Also a new rear tyre, Panaracer Gravel King bought a few weeks ago, basically the same as the front WTB Horizon but slightly grippier.
Apart from these all other components are same as purchased.
I’m selling at what I think is a lower price than others going due to the condition. It’s been used over winter and a few bike packing trips, a fair few marks on the frame from bike packing bags. (top tip, tape your frame before tying things to it).
The rear hub bearings are starting to go but wouldn’t be expensive to replace. There is a bolt missing from the rear mudguard but gorilla tape fixed it fine. And the shifting works okay most of the time but sometimes struggles to go into the bottom cog.
I can deliver locallyish if you’re near a train station or collection from Glasgow Southside. Plenty more pics if you need.
