Collection only

Reluctant sale of our son’s 2016 Whyte 806 Compact – sad to see it go – simply, he’s outgrown it!

Ridden regularly for 4 years since new but lovingly cared for and maintained, regardless of cost – the pictures are testimony to this!

Size: XS – rare as hens teeth!

BRAND NEW Parts, (most never ridden) – over £200 spent, Jan/Feb 2021

Rock Shox Forks – NEW seals & fluids/oils. Full strip and service by LBS – Cytech qualified (£90)
(NB: air pressure set for a 70KG rider, compression is firm – clearly this is adjustable up/down.  Also to note… the effectiveness/usefulness of the ‘lockout’ feature on this fork [or, this model?] is/has always been questionable – we just don’t use it but we’ve never particularly noticed any significant difference with it turned on v off!!! – it ‘feels’ the same re: ‘firmness’, not sure whether or not that’s to do with the relatively high pressure that’s in them???…)

NEW Deore Chain (£17.50)

NEW Deore Cassette (£35)

NEW Deore BB (£25)

NEW Headset bearings, top (cartridge/retainer) & bottom (£15)

NEW Tektro pads around 50 miles ago (£20)

NEW Front & Rear Gear Cables – new inner cables and outer cables (£20)

NB: whilst in the LBS, it was checked over in prep. for sale… the response?  Spot on, in many ways like new, in several ways better than new, ready to ride away!

Upgrades –  £130 + spent over the last 4 years

HOPE seat clamp, black – 4 years old, £20 when new

DMR Brendog Deathgrips, Camo, Thick – brand new, £17.50 (NB: one of the hex bolts has some rounding, from installation)

FIZIK Gobi XM Wing Flex, Tail Flex Saddle with ICS (Integrated Clip System) – few years old, from memory was £80 new.

ELITE bottle cage, black/stealth – 4 years old, £15 when new

MBUK ‘Minty’ Mint Sauce – free but Priceless!  Class. Pure Class.  Brand new, unused.

‘Stans No Tubes’ – rear wheel set-up tubeless.

All other spec. is stock/OEM – as listed by Whyte


No pedals.

Wear and marks commensurate with age and use – for example, but not limited to: small areas of shoe rub on cranks, small surface scratches on the seat post from insertion/height adjustment, the odd minor surface scratch/mark e.g. on the underside of the downtube on the decals, from the Thule roof carrier etc. etc.  HOWEVER… no dints, dings, cracks etc. – frame is straight.

Very much sold as seen, in good faith, having been as open, honest and transparent as possible – please see pictures for exact/further details re: description, condition etc.

Do any parts/components soon need replacing?  IMO, no – however at some point you may want to update the rear tyre (there are minor signs of wear on the tread and walls) and replace the middle front chainring… however there’s plenty of life left in them yet!

Happy to answer any questions on, and likewise send any send pictures of, any part of the bike…

Open to reasonable, respectful offers – please respect the brand, model, age, condition and amount spent on new parts and upgrades!  Make mean offer, I can only say ‘No’!

COVID-secure, socially-distanced collection ONLY.  I will NOT ship.

Payment via Bank Transfer (Mobile Banking?) ONLY please, on Viewing/Collection of the bike.  Strictly NO PayPal.

Thanks for looking – the bike is listed elsewhere so this ad. may be withdrawn without notice.

[To give you an idea of sizing, our (slightly taller than average) son used it from approx. age 9 to 13.  We found the XS frame with compact geometry/components rolling on 27.5” wheels the perfect bike to move on to from his previous 24” wheeled bike.  Light, roomy, nimble, rolls brilliantly.  Whyte suggest the XS is suitable for those from approx.. 4’7” – 5’2” in height –either older children/young adults or small adults.  Our son is now 5’5” and has just stopped using it.]
