Whyte 2014 – any pics/spec available yet?
from FB, “behind the scenes” of the ‘dealers’ launch, the 2014 website will be live ASAP
906, 907(if I see it right) and 909 hardtails? Still doing those outdated wheels, I dunno
what is das then?Posted 4 years ago
.. I’m just reposting what they put on Facebook, so I dunno anymore than you (my ‘labels’ may not even be correct). I’d imagine not TBH, if they follow the ‘marin/atb’ way of doing stuff.Posted 4 years ago
That tends to be: make a frame, use the same basic design 3 years but refine it over as you go (make it lighter for the most part).thestabiliserMember
Just read other thread
chuffing 6 effing 50 blinkin B
I’ll give ’em 650b. Remenber when all we ‘ad was one wheel size and did we complain, did we ‘eck, we just got on with it and don’t get me statred on them interpreted steerers, whatever they are……..grumble shuffle mumblePosted 4 years ago
>Has that 129 got a bit more travel on the rear shock?
That’s the new 129 “Works” model (£2,600), with Fox suspension (hopefully the 2014 versions with some damping…) and XT bits and bobs plus the WTB tyres. I’d guess the equipment spec will be the same for all the frame sizes.
AFAIK the 129S (up a tad to £2,100) will still have Rockshox suspension and SRAM gear much the same as last year, with minor tweaks to a few things like handlebar and saddle.
My deposit’s already in for a 129 Works, subject to the full spec being ok when they finally release it to the masses (any day now…ish), but it’s not looking too bad from the pics! Oh and the colours are called zinc and aqua apparently – not sure I’m sold on that colour scheme but that’s just more incentive not to look down as you hurtle along.Posted 4 years agojonkineticcyclesMember
We had a good old gander at them yesterday and there are some absolute winners. The carbon M109 runs full XTR (except for the chainset) and carbon wheels, 11kg and sub 4k
129S same as last year but new front end with lighter triangle, internal cabling better finishing kit and reverb stealth, does go up by £100 though.
My favourite? Saxon Cross Team – 7005 frame set, Easton fork and EA90 disc tubeless wheels, FSA carbon cranks and Red 22 hydraulic disksPosted 4 years ago
Even more pictures.. & yes I wish they’d stop talking about updating the website and just change the bloody thing!
Well the names of the hardtails have totally baffled me, now there a 806, 901/5/6/7 & 6/729 along side what looks to be a 909 replacing the 929 (maybe or is that a 929 there?)…
I imagine there some sort of news blackout, as Whytes marketing ppl extract everythiong they can from FB, twitter and idiots on forums 😉
