New Bike – Whyte 19 Carbon Team
After 4-5 months of waiting patiently my Whyte 19 Carbon Team frameset finally arrived a little over a week ago.
Still some tweaks needed before it is really as I would want it – most probably a 90mm rather than 100mm stem and some carbon low risers. Not 100% sure about the saddle either – never used a Toupe on an MTB before.

Dibbs – yes some of the FSA BB30 Carbon cranks like yours would be more appropriate – but I could not justify the further £500-600 outlay at the moment. Perhaps next spring – hopefully there will be a more choice by then?
Pauly – yes it is a small. Whyte don’t publish the seat tube measurements with their geometries. It measures 16in but the box it came in was marked 15″. Given the bow in the TT I have needed to use a 410mm post to ensure the min insert line is below the intersection of TT and ST. I am 5’8″ ish but with shortish legs 29/30in there is sufficient standover for me but anyone with a smaller inseam would stuggle in my opinion.Posted 8 years ago
xcstu – got the bike stand from my local LBS. They are made by PRO. Several local shops near me have them SigmaSport, Pearsons
ttf – not tried the Race Kings yet. Got them cheapish from Wiggle a few months back. They seal very easily on the Olympic rims. My only experience of tubless is with RR’s so only time will tell.Posted 8 years ago
How’d you get Shimano working on it?
The frames come with a press-in bottom bracket adapter sleeve.Posted 8 years ago
