  • Here’s a link to a recent WMB group test that the Whyte won. They all look pretty good though.

    interested in any experiences good and bad / regrets / downsides etc.?

    Feeling myself inexorably drawn to the “new darkside”……..

    29’ers that seem to cover a similar range of riding to the Yeti that I like the look of include Pivot 429, Devinci Atlas, Whyte T129

    thanks

    Pulls up a chair…
    I currently have a 5carbon and was wondering the same. If they did the same set up in 29, it would be a no brainer

    Close – I went from a 575 to a Whyte T129S.

    The Whyte is, I think, a better ride. It is faster, more stable and planted and just plain more fun. This came as something of a surprise!

    My 575 was a first gen one, if that makes any difference.

    ermm had a first gen 575 as well. I think the ASR 5 is a bit faster, more planted, stable and more fun………… so that’s a bit inconclusive!!

    Charlie I’m with you on that. I had the older 575. The 5 is better.
    I do like the look of the Salsa Horsethief
