Whyte T129s News 2014 Release brought forward due to demand..
I got leisure lakes last one in group around the end of March, so far its been very good. a tad light on the front end on very steep climbs, and I have a feeling I could do with stronger rims, but I’m quite heavy and I am ejoying riding through things instead of round them lol 🙂Posted 4 years agoz1ppyMember
Small company does good (with seemingly sorted frame), so tries to sell a few more units, fair bloody play to them!
It’s given me an option to buy one, I hadn’t expected.
Personnaly surprised there no more 929 HT’s coming too, they seemingly sold out before they even hit the show room or had a glowing magazine reviewPosted 4 years ago
This is copied from Whyte Facebook page, maybe old news but thought I would share.

Morning…hope you managed a BH ride! T129-S news! 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. We still have the T129 in several sizes, drop your local dealer a line for details. Thanks.

2014 T-129 – apparently in three different variations – the basic, the T-129S and “the works” – pricing around £100 more than last year, apart from the new “Works” version which apparently has XTR componentry all the way through with Reverb seat post – at £2600 – £2700. – this is all unconfirmed – just what I have heard. Personally I have just ordered the Works version and cant wait the 6 weeks until I get it!!Posted 4 years agojonbaMember
just came across these the other day and they do look good.
I think they may include a higher end one as well. Scary as it is but £2k is mid range at most for this type of bike. If you look at other manufacturer prices (orange, santacruz, specialized, trek) then they all seem to have things in the 3k region as well. Hopefully they will put better bits on rather than just bumping the price of the 2k version.Posted 4 years ago
Just seen a brochure at my lbs!
Colours are all three models are greyish, looks like it might be anodised. Different colour decals differ between models. For people who have a 2013 mode, the only real differences I can see are: reverb stealth, front derailleur cable internally routed (along with reverb), 750mm bars, shorter stems, wtb tyres instead of maxxis on t129s. Think that’s about it. Oh apart from the shock mount on the top tube not having solid plates like the 2013 model, has cut outs in each side. Personally I think the 2013 colours are better. There is a works model now though, good spec. Not sure on pricing though.
The 146 is dead, long live the g-150! 150mm 27.5 enduro bike. Looks pretty awesome.Posted 4 years ago
I love how big my t-129 is. It’s a large too! I still run all the spacers under the stem so can lower the front if it gets too high. Think it’d be perfect for the riding I do up here in the lakes with a bigger fork on the front, little bit too noodley at the moment. Still great but stiffer longer fork would maximise the bikes downhill potential!Posted 4 years agoCapt. KronosSubscriber
Would love to hear how the 140mm fork works – that is on my list of upgrades too, though I was planning the X-Fusion (mainly as I hadn’t seen a 140mm 29er Pike as yet!)
I am also riding in the Lakes as it happens 😉
My thought was that I could pop some flat bars on to mitigate the 20mm rise in the front end anyway plus, as you, I have the spacers on there still as a bonus!Posted 4 years ago
