The Bilsland Verdict: The Glencoe is perfect for any rider who wants a fun relaxed gravel experience. Whether it be solo or in a group, smashing singletrack or cruising along fire-track the Glencoe has you covered. Coming equipped with Sram Apex 1x11 means you don't have to worry about that pesky front derailleur catching your trouser or dropping the chain. The wide handlebars allow for plenty of control when things gets fast and steep. This bike is for the wanderer, the explorer, the free spirit, the rider that wants to experience gravel and all the amazing places that comes with it.

The All-Road All-RounderLight, comfortable and responsive, Glencoe is our fattest gravel bike for riders who want a super versatile, smooth-riding all-roader that’s as playful as it is practical. Whether you’re looking to load up and head out for an adventure on rough country lanes and light gravel routes, or just cruise smoothly around your regular roads, the Glencoe’s 650x47mm high-volume tyres make it a true all-rounder for any ride.

  • 6061 T6 hydroformed, multi-butted alloy Single Chain Ring (1X) specific frame
  • Lightweight straight bladed 6061 alloy fork
  • SRAM Apex 11 speed mechanical transmission + hydraulic disc brakes
  • 1x11 transmission (42T chainring x 10-42T cassette)
  • 650bx47mm high volume Maxxis Receptor TR EXO Sidewall Protection tyres
Why Glencoe?

Our signature Whyte Total geometry gives you a clear confidence and safety boost, too so the fun doesn’t stop when the road ends either. Contemporary mountain bike (MTB) influences include a longer reach, a short stem, and a wider bar. We stopped short of a crazy-slack head angle though because Whyte’s Total Geometry concept creates confident control through fork geometry genius instead. That way you get the same confident ‘drop bar MTB’ feel without the flop and wander of a slack head angle. The result isn’t just confidence on rougher surfaces, but a naturally neutral and natural steering feel on road, too. That doesn’t change when you’re loaded up with bike packing gear either and the fixed seat post is compatible with whatever bags you choose.

Features & Equipment

Practical, good-looking, and always ready for adventure, Glencoe is your ideal getaway partner. Wide-range SRAM Apex single-ring gearing makes climbing easy – whether loaded up with bike-packing gear or making up for lost time after the morning alarm didn’t go off. Hydraulic disc brakes with an oversize front rotor mean stopping is never an issue either. Sealed cable ports and masses of mud clearance, together with being fully mud-guard ready – just add our own Whyte mudguards – all combine to ensure that bad weather will never hold you back. And if that wasn’t enough, the alloy frame and fork have mounts to take a full set of bike packing gear or conventional pannier racks, so the Glencoe can be ridden as far or fast as you like.

We like to make things simple here at Billy Bilsland Cycles, so our shipping services are crystal clear.

If you require expedited/next day shipping, give us a call on 0141 552 0841 or drop us an email on sales@billybilslandcycles.co.uk and we'll do our best to accommodate.

Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.

Depending on the model, upon receipt you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, reattach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Pedal do not come with every bike and need to be bough separately, especially on more high-end models. Please check when you are ordering.

There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.

Delivery Costs

We offer a standard 48Hr Service for courier shipping via Royal Mail for accessories, and APC Next Day for bike deliveries.
