- Used 2013 Whyte 146, yay or nay?
mudsoul – frame issues. Haven’t seen any 2013 models with the same issues as previous models, that is cracks around the BB or downtube. The support strut seems to have stiffened them up. Have seen current models with seatclamp area issues though. Have seen the bonding fail on the alu sleeve used in the seatclamp area. We don’t get many Carbon frames back for warranty but when we do it’s more than likely a 146.Posted 4 years ago
I currently ride a 2011 Marin Mount Vision XM8 and really like it. I’ve been offered a deal on a slightly used Whyte 146s, which has a very similar geometry, only slightly longer and slacker and I love the looks of the frame. I’ve read reports of subpar build quality with the 2012 frames (hairline cracks and wonky rear ends), and was wondering if the newer ones (with the brace in the front triangle) are any better? I am only interested in knowing what owners think of the frames as I intend to build it up with my parts anyway, so don’t care what the stock parts are like.
Any input would be appreciated.Posted 4 years ago
