- New Bike (No Garden Content/29er Inclusive)
Following an unexpected call from Wheelbase I had to pop out to pick up my shiny new Whyte T129S in large (after being told they wouldn’t be in until early March).
The only downside is a lack of clearance for the Conti Mountain King 2.4s so I am searching for a slightly lower volume alternative… Hans Dampf??? As a result the Icon has gone back on the rear, but it is woefully inadequate for the current conditions!
It is absolutely lovely btw.
My garden is currently being redesigned so I borrowed Gummers Howe for the photographs today 😉 Sorry.Posted 5 years agodmw536Member
The 2.35 Hans Dampf seems huge to me, I replaced my high roller 2.35 (that was a bit tight on clearence but perfectly useable) with a hans and it rubbed like a bitch, definitely more like a 2.4 although I have no experience of Contis so maybe they come up even bigger.Posted 5 years ago
Bike looks good even though not my cuppa tea personally.twoninerMember
Have you got out for a good ride on it yet? I have just bought one but changed a lot, brakes, bars, shifters and so on. The bars had to much of a backsweep for me. Ive not ridden mine in anger yet just up and down the street just for the initial set up.
I wanted to get rid of the QR seat collar for a non QR but the QR on this one is a strange set up.
Have you changed the rear tyre yet? I noticed there wasn’t much clearance I there and wondered what id get away with. been thinking Conti rubber queen up front and X King at rear.Posted 5 years ago
