Product Description

Details

Whyte Victoria Compact 2018

The first compact frame bike in the Whyte Fast Urban flatbar road bike range that offers the extra comfort and performance of a lighter weight carbon fork.

Upgrades from Whyte Carnaby

  • 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 Acera 2x9 shifting is that bit slicker and simpler than Altus 3x9
  • Vittoria Zaffiro Pro 700 x 28c folding tyres are lighter weight than 700 x 32

Same as Whyte Carnaby

Compact Size
The Whyte Victoria is like the Whyte Shoreditchbut 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.

Custom-drawn hydroformed 6061 T6 aluminium frame
This bike shares the same custom-drawn hydroformed 6061 T6 aluminium frame and the proven geometry that has helped make the Whyte Stirling, Cambridge and Portobello such exemplary bikes for everyday riding.

Proven Geometry
The frame matches a 73.5 degree seat tube angle with a 69.5degree head angle (medium size). The steep seat angle helps you power the cranks. The relaxed head angle and the long wheelbase delivers high speed stability.

Tektro Hydraulic Disc Brakes
Tektro 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 more than a decade, Tektro hydraulic disc brakes now feature on better quality urban bikes, such as the Whyte Victoria. This makes sense because consistent confidence-inspiring braking is at least as important on the road as it is on the trail. Why you want a bike with hydraulic disc brakes - 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 Whitechapel, 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 flatbar 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 flatbar 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.

How Whyte describe the Victoria
The lightweight aluminium frame employs compact geometry to make this bike perfect for shorter riders who want a wide-ratio 2x9spd Shimano drivetrain.

A custom rear dropout allows us to mount the rear hydraulic disc brake caliper inside the rear triangle, clearing the way for any rack or mudguards that may be required.

Our shaped, butted and uniquely profiled rear stays give all our fast urban bikes a fantastically responsive and comfortable ride.
Dropout

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

Every tube is custom drawn to Whyte's own specifications to ensure it's as thin walled as can be without compromising strength - a formula that helps make Whyte bikes among the lightest in every class.

Whyte Geometry
When we talk about a bicycle’s geometry, we’re talking about the angles and measurements that determine where the rider is positioned between the wheels, and how the bike connects with the ground. More than the components or the frame material, a bike’s geometry defines the way it rides. It's the key factor that sets Whyte apart from the competition.

The Whyte formula has been 15 years in the making. It’s a formula that inspires confidence in beginners and casual cyclists alike, whilst allowing Whyte's expert race teams to perform to the absolute limits of their ability. Confidence is Whyte's ultimate goal when designing a bike.

This confidence is achieved by combining a relaxed head angle (the angle the fork comes out of the frame) with a longer than average front centre to create a bike that is stable at speed and feels predictable, especially when the terrain gets steeper. To sharpen up the steering response for low-speed precision, wide handlebars and short stems are specced. At the back of the bike, the aim is to make the chainstays as short as physically possible to maximise the bike’s agility. It’s a formula that works in all situations, whatever your ambitions and whatever your level of skill.'
