Whyte Stirling 2017

Whyte's top of the range flatbar alloy road bike upgraded for 2017 with BBX internal cable routing for clean lines and skinnier seat stays for comfort.

As Cycling Plus magazine put it a couple of years ago when they gave the Whyte Stirling a 4.5/5 rating, 'high quality kit on a mountain bike-style frame creates a great urban bike'. See full review.

Whyte Urban Commuter Bike Overview
Also known as 'flatbar road bikes', Urban Commuter bikes combines close-to road bike speed with matched with the flat bar control you'll be familiar with if you've ever ridden a mountain bike.

Whyte Urban Commuter 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 lightweight, folding, zippy, puncture-resistant Maxxis Rouleur 700x28 tyres, the compact double chainset transmissions and the unique control you enjoy when the bike is equipped with high quality hydraulic disc brakes.

The Stirling employs some of the best elements of Whyte’s unique UK trail-optimised MTB hardtails to create a nippy, agile city bike. The custom gauge 6061 aluminium frame's long wheelbase and relaxed 70 degree head angle deliver high speed stability. The shorter stem enables slow speed manoeuvrability. Its shaped, butted, profiled stays make for a fantastically responsive and comfortable rear end. Hydraulic disc brakes offer a level of control previously reserved for high-end trail mountain bikes. Why you want hydraulic disc brakes.

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 Stirling, 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 Custom-drawn Tubing
Every Whyte aluminium frame is built with custom drawn tubes. This means that Whyte go to the expense of spec'ing a different tube set for each frame size. Apparently, it’s normal practice for bike companies to save money by using the same tube set for every size. This means that a butted tubeset will have to be designed around the smallest frame size. Say the smallest frame size is 16”. When the tubes are cut to size, they will have a short thicker-walled section at each end as you would expect from butted tubes. When the same tube set is used to create a 21” frame a much larger proportion of the tube will be thick walled. That’s why large frames are often disproportionately heavier than they need be. Custom tubing is Whyte's guarantee that the frame will be as light as possible in every size.

'Whyte Stirling
The Stirling is our top of the range aluminium urban bike, boasting Tektro's powerful Gemini disc brakes and SRAM's superb Rival 22 flat bar drivetrain.

Based on our high performance mountain bike geometry, the Stirling has a long wheelbase and relaxed head angle for high speed stability, and a shorter stem for excellent slow speed manoeuvrability.

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