Product Details

Whyte Whitechapel 2018 Hybrid Bike

Matching close to road bike speed potential with the easy familiarity of mountain bike handlebars, shifters and brake levers, Whyte’s famous flat bar road bikes start here.

Custom-drawn hydroformed 6061 T6 aluminium frame
The Whitechapel 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
A Whitechapel frame matches a 73.5 degree seat tube angle with a 70 degree 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 on fast downhills.

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.

Shimano Altus 1x9 Simplified Gear Shifting
One shifter, one gear mech, one cog and one chainset means less weight and less to go wrong, yet the Shimano 11-36 cassette offers a wide enough gear range for the majority of city riders. The benefits of one-by drivetrain.

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 Whitechapel. 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.
