Whyte t129 scr owners
One more question for anyone able to help
I assumed the single internal entry point on the headtube was for the rear brake due to it being on the same side, however looking at pics it seems it’s the rear mech cable.
So on the other side the 2 ports next to each other are for the reverb and the rear brake?
Does this mean the cable crosses over under the frame?

I’ve got a T129 Scr and had to warranty replace the reverb. It was a 10 minute job cutting cable after removing lever. I did find using the red barb that comes with the installation kit useful in dragging through the cable once I’d attached a section of old cable to it. Will use this when I have to do the rear mech too,
My biggest issue is that the frame grommets tear when you try and remove them. They are such a tight fit. High chance of scratching the frame too if you use a flat blade screw driver to prize them into place. Local bike shop couldn’t get any replacements for a few weeks, so ordered some from Jenson USA for reasonable amount considering they came from other side of the planet. Took 10 days. Came up on a search for giant frame grommets.
Good luck. I really enjoy riding my bike. Had yeti’s and Santa Cruz’s for a few years. But this hasn’t disappointed at all.Posted 2 years ago
Got the reverb done so easily I dont knowvwhat I was worrying about, removing those grommets was the key.
Whyte actually sent me a pack of spares foc, arrived in 2 days.
Today or tomorrow is the bit im really dreading, the rear brake 😮
Bike is nearly built and I must say it looks the dogs bollocks, rear tyre clearance is indeed small but that is what gives it the snappy character.
Cant wait to ride itPosted 2 years ago
