Product Details

Whyte Whitechapel 2020 -  Fast Commuter 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.

KEY FEATURES

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Mudguard and Rack Compatible: Custom dropouts enable Whyte to mount the rear hydraulic disc brake calliper 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.

How Whyte Describe the Whitechapel

  • 'The Whitechapel is all about simplicity: a single chain ring and nine gears at the back will give years of reliable urban use.

  • Based on our high performance mountain bike geometry, all our Fast Urban bikes have a long wheelbase and relaxed head angle for high speed stability, and a shorter stem for excellent slow speed manoeuvrability.

  • A custom rear dropout allows us to mount the rear hydraulic disc brake caliper inside the rear triangle for easy fitment of a rack or mudguards.'
