Product Description

Whyte Carnaby

What better name for a groovy street bike than the Carnaby? Check the clean design from the internal routed cables to the Shimano 1x9 gearing.

Compact Size
The Whyte Carnaby is like the Whyte Whitechapel but with a shorter top tube for an easier reach to the bars. This compact geometry offers a better fit for the majority of women and a fair few shorter guys.

Whyte Fast Urban Road Bike Overview
Also known as 'urban flatbars' Fast Urban Road Bikes combine close to road bike speed with the flatbar handling control, familiar to anyone who has enjoyed riding a mountain bike with riser bars equipped with high quality brake and gear levers.

Whyte Fast Urban Road Bikes are fast becoming 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: hence the lightweight butted aluminium frame, the zippy puncture-resistant Vittoria Zaffiro 700x32 tyres, the simplified single-chainring gear shifting and the unique control offered by high quality hydraulic disc brakes.

Shimano Acera 1x9 Simplified Gear Shifting
One shifter, one gear mech, one cog and one chainset means less weight and less to go wrong, yet the Shimano 11-34 cassette offers a wide enough gear range for the majority of city riders.

Tektro Auriga Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Tektro Auriga stoppers deliver single-digit modulated braking - i.e. all it takes is a light squeeze of the lever with a single fingertip to apply each brake. Proven on high-spec mountain bikes over the past decade, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes now feature on better quality urban bikes, such as the Whyte Carnaby. This makes sense because consistent confidence-inspiring braking is at least as important on the road as it is on the trail. Why consider a bike with high quality hydraulic disc brakes? See blog.

Disc Brake-Specific Wheels
The deep section rims are optimised for disc brakes and sport 3M reflective decals to help you get spotted from all sides.

Aluminium Custom Tubing
The premium grade 6061 aluminium Whyte use has been specially developed to allow for hydro-forming (where hot oil is pumped through the tube at pressure to fine-tune its profile).

Every tubes is custom drawn to Whyte's own specifications based on frame size. This translates into thinner tube butting profiles over the entire length of the tube, and means that for the same strength, stiffness and fatigue characteristics, Whyte can engineer a lighter chassis.

Mudguard and Rack Compatible
Custom dropouts enable Whyte to mount the rear hydraulic disc brake caliper inside the rear triangle, making it rack and mudguards compatible. If you want any extras fitted to a Whyte Carnaby, such as Whyte's matching mudguards,let us know when you order the bike and we will customise the bike to your requirements at no extra labour charge.

'Whyte Carnaby
The Carnaby is all about simplicity, with the addition of female-focused components such as Whyte's women's specific saddle.

Nine gears operated by one shifter will give years of urban use while disc brakes guarantee consistent stopping performance, whatever the weather.

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, and a shorter stem for excellent slow speed manoeuvrability.

A custom rear dropout allows us to mount the rear hydraulic disc brake caliper inside the rear triangle for easy fitment of a rack or mudguards.'
