THE WHYTE DORSET SPEC

Carbon Forks: If you want to reduce weight whilst improving comfort, aerodynamics and steering response, upgrading the fork blades from metal to carbon is probably the most profound improvement you can make on a road bike.

TRP HyRd Disc Brakes: TRP HyRd cable-operated hydraulic disc brakes work with conventional drop bar brake levers, yet they offer the adjustability and power previously reserved for hydraulic brakes. The advantage of this system over any previous cable-actuated disc brake system is that the pads are much easier to set up at an optimal distance from the rotor without rubbing. These brakes automatically self adjust so the pads move closer to the rotor as they wear down. This means that TRP (Tektro Racing Products) HyRd disc brakes maintain optimal performance over the whole life of every set of pads (just like full hydraulic brakes).

To quote road.cc's review 'TRP Hy/Rd disc brakes combine cable actuation with hydraulic power right in the calliper. They're powerful, easy to live with and the best solution so far for disc brakes with conventional brake/gear levers.'

A Gear for Anything Ridable: Shimano Sora 2x9 shifters with 11-36 cassette and 34-50t chainrings offer a wide range of gears to help make hill climbs easier and flat roads faster.

Mudguard and Rack Compatible for All-Season Performance Full mudguard and rack compatibility means the Whyte Devon could easily double as a fast touring / commuting / everyday bike.

Whyte even make their own mudguards to match this bike. If you want mudguards and/or any other extras fitted, let us know when you order the bike and we will customise it to your requirements at no extra labour charge.

Whyte Custom-Drawn Tubing: We believe that Whyte are the only company in the bicycle industry who build every hydroformed aluminium frame with custom drawn tubing. This means that Whyte go to the expense of spec'ing a different tube set for each frame size. Custom tubing is Whyte's guarantee that their frames will be as light as possible in every size.

Whyte Geometry: Whyte are famed for getting their frame geometry just right, to ensure you feel confident and centered on the bike. So it goes with the Whyte Devon. Its road bike-like seat tube angle (73.5 degrees in 54cm) positions you over the cranks for maximum pedalling efficiency. Its 73 degree head tube angle makes the bike reassuringly stable, especially on downhills. The happy result is a bicycle that rides like its a natural extension of your limbs.
