Product Details

Whyte Portobello 2018 Hybrid Bike

Full Shimano Sora 2x9 delivers a wider range of gears makes for an even more versatile Whyte Fast Urban Road Bike.

Upgrades from Whyte Shoreditch

  • Need a wider spread of gears? The Whyte Portobello delivers with a smooth-shifting Shimano Sora transmission with 2x9 Rapidfire shifters and derailleurs, an 11-32 cassette and a 34/50 chainset
  • Lighter weight folding version of the Vittoria Zaffiro Pro tyres

Same as Whyte Shoreditch

Carbon fork
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.

Shimano Deore 1x10 Simplified Gear Shifting
Proven on mountain bikes, now crossing over to better quality road bikes, one-by gear shifting comes highly recommended. More on this.

The 11-42 cassette offers a wider range and lower climbing gears than the Whyte Whitechapel's 11-36 cassette.

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 Shoreditch. 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.

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 Shoreditch, 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 Fast Urban Road Bike Overview
Also known as flat bar road bikes, Whyte Fast Urban Road Bikes offer close-to road bike speed courtesy of its smooth puncture resistant 700x32 roadie tyres.

With its semi-riser bars, equipped with hydraulic brake levers and Shimano Rapidfire gear shifters always within comfortable reach, a Whyte Fast Urban Road Bike offers the safe, familiar handling normally associated with a good quality mountain bike.

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 flat bar city bike that doesn't compromise performance: hence the lightweight butted aluminium frame; the simplified single-chainring gear shifting and the unique stopping power offered by high quality hydraulic disc brakes.
