Product Description


Whyte Cambridge '17

One of our most popular flatbar urban commuter/road bikes, the Whyte Cambridge is upgraded for 2017 with the convenience of SRAM 1x11 gear shifting.

Whyte Urban Commuter Bikes
This flatbar road bike delivers the engaging, quick-accelerating, fast-steering ride you would expect with a similar price road bike, matched with the flat bar control you'll be familiar with if you've ever ridden a mountain bike.

Whyte Urban Commuter Bikes such as the Cambridge have become the first choice of experienced cyclists who normally ride a mountain bike or a racing bike, but are looking for a flatbar city bike that doesn't compromise performance, thanks to its lightweight butted aluminium frame, its zippy-but-forgiving puncture-resistant 700x32 tyres, its single-chainring drivetrain and its all-weather low maintenance performance of hydraulic disc brakes.

Proven geometry
The Cambridge employs some of the best elements of Whyte’s unique UK trail optimised MTB hardtails to create a nippy, agile city bike. Elements such as the custom gauge 6061 aluminium frame's long wheelbase and relaxed 70 degree head angle for high speed stability; a shorter stem for excellent slow speed manoeuvrability; and shaped, butted, profiled stays to create a responsive yet shock-damping rear triangle.

Mudguard and rack compatible
Whyte's custom dropout positions the rear disc brake caliper inside the rear triangle so it doesn’t preclude fitting a standard mudguard and pannier rack. The fork is also eyeletted to take a full length mudguard, making this 'urban bike' perfect for trips to the countryside and cycling holidays too.

'We were excited to be able to spec SRAM's new Apex 1 road groupset on the Cambridge. With its 1 by 11 wide range 11-42T drivetrain, it will help you conquer even the hilliest of cities.

Based on our high performance mountain bike geometry, all our Fast Urban bikes have a long wheelbase and relaxed head angle for high speed stability, with a shorter stem for excellent slow speed manoeuvrability.

For 2017 we have a brand new frame, featuring a new front triangle with BBX internal cable routing and new slimmed down seat stays to give even more comfort.'

Back in the saddle Review by Rtb
As a fifty something motorcyclist who needs some cardio this bike was recommended by the bruntsfield staff.
Compared to my last Claude butler racer (circa 1978) this feels space age. light, fast comfortable and practical with retro fitted mudguards and rack. Everything feels good quality and although I am not familiar with the brands of the gears, brakes and tyres I can make comparisons with premium motorcycle brands and this bike feels like great value for money.
Stable a full pelt downhill and nimble on the local canal path, only the addition of more comfortable handlebar grips are required to make this a perfect reintroduction to the joys of pedal power.
