Whyte Glencoe 2018

With a nod to its 650b x 47c WTB tyres, Whyte describe their all-new Glencoe debut RoadPLUS/Adventure bike as 'the best all round road bike we have ever made'

WTB Horizon TCS, DNA Compound, Folding, 650b x 47c tyres

  • Describing the Glencoe as a Road/Plus bike after its 650b x 47c plus-size WTB tyres underlines the notion that, almost always, nothing influences the ride characteristics of a bike more than its tyres
  • The supple, lightweight, folding WTB tyres are so forgiving, you'll be riding the Whyte Glencoe over kerbs, potholes and cobbles with hardly a care
  • But here's the clever bit - the tyre's rolling circumference (where it makes contact with the road) is no greater than an equivalent 700x28 tyre
  • This helps explain why a properly made, lightweight plus-size tyre with a folding bead isn't just more comfortable and compliant: it can be at least as fast as a skinny tyre - more on this
  • The tyres are fitted to a sound set of wheels with smooth spinning cartridge sealed bearings
  • The tyres and rims are tubeless ready
  • Why upgrade to tubeless?
  • It does the Glencoe no harm that the tyres' tan sidewalls help make it such a beautiful road bike

What else is great about Glencoe?

  • The trademark Whyte frame is as light as it can be and as strong as it needs to be, thanks to its custom drawn, frame size specific, hydroformed, multi-butted T6 6061 aluminium frame tubing
  • Being a Whyte, the frame geometry is bang on
  • The 74 degree seat tube angle position you 'on top of' the cranks to power you up hills
  • The long top tube and the shallow 70 degree head angle make for stable downhilling
  • This SCR-specific frame is optimised for the bike's single chainring drivetrain
  • SRAM APEX 1x11 offers all the benefits of a single chainring drivetrain
  • The chainstay and forks both boast particularly neat flat mounts for the disc brake calipers

TRP HyRd Disc Brakes

  • TRP (Tektro Racing Products) HyRd disc brakes deliver confidence-inspiring all-weather performance
  • TRP HyRd cable-operated hydraulic disc brakes work with conventional 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
  • 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.'

Here's how Whyte describe the Glencoe in their own words

'The Glencoe combines our Gravel/Adventure frame with Road Plus tyres. These high air volume 650b tyres have the same rolling circumference as a 700c x 28c setup and give huge levels of comfort and security on even the roughest road surfaces.

"1 by 11” technology offers simplicity and efficiency that cannot be rivalled.

TRP mechanical/hydraulic disc brakes add stopping power and control. Whether you're an innercity, year round commuter or a C or D back-road rider, the Glencoe is the perfect bike to give you control on unpredictable surfaces.

The Glencoe is the best all round road bike we have ever made.'

Hi,

Love this bike!! After years switching between road and mountain bikes I was looking for a one do-it-all bike and also comfort was high on my list without giving up on to much speed. Of course there are other 650b bikes but most of the time at a much higher price point..
I have to say that also the purchase with Edinburgh Bicycle was more then ok ;-), the only thing this bike lets it down somewhat are some of the components are to heavy, so I changed the saddle, seat tube, handlebar, stem and some other small pieces and bolts...so I saved almost 1kg!
One last remark, customer service from Whyte Bikes is lousy! Not one answer on my (3) mails! Therefore the 'only' four stars.

Thanks and going for a ride now ;-)
