According to their FB page, Whyte are bringing the 2014 bikes forward to satisfy demand
“We are hoping to take delivery of the 2014 T129-S in early July, having brought the production forward significantly due to demand. Please stay in contact with your local dealer who will have the specs and pricing by early July.”ahwilesSubscriber

Why not get a 140mm bike that pedals well. I’ve never once wished for less travel on my bike.
(it’s a good question)
because that’ll be 40mm more travel than i *really* need, and well controlled travel costs £££.
i can’t afford it, i don’t need it, i don’t even want it. i do need a little skill compensation, and i reckon helpful geometry is more important than more travel.
basically, it’s not 1997 anymore, which is the last time i hucked-to-flat.

Please can you make something like this now… http://www.pinkbike.com/news/Banshee-Phantom-29er-Sea-Otter-2013.html as it’s just the bike I want, not in 2015 for mega bucks.
Apparently I need 140mm of travel, in order to get a nice relaxed head angle on a 29er FS. Yeah the Whyte would be just the bunny but some bloody silly magazine raved about them, so now they’ll be sold out.Posted 4 years agoesher shoreMember
its back to Banshee Bikes in the UK, something that the Banshee guys put right when they moved to their new UK distributor ISON
when Freeborn were doing Banshee it had to become “Mythic” because of the Halfords “Carrera Banshee” trademarking; Freeborn were warned by Halfords Legal people to leave the issue alone
turns out in the early days when this issue was being looked into, one of the original Canadian owners of Banshee only made it as far as Heathrow Airport / Hotel and did not make the meeting with Halfords..
who were somewhat miffed and therefore less than keen to come to a compromise over the issue when Freeborn made an attempt to talk to themPosted 4 years agoCaptainFlashheartMember
