MBR magazine described Whyte's T-160 RS as “an absolute ripper. It feels totally planted and you don’t have to do any sort of risk assessment before launching into a load of nasty stuff.” That’s because Whyte have spent years doing those risk assessments and launching into that nasty stuff themselves.
Evolving their revolutionary slammed, stretched and user adjustable Total Geometry ride dynamic for a brilliant mix of easy pedal or distance speed but glue-like grip when it’s time to turn and burn. Whyte have curated the RS componentry with equal passion and insight too so there’s no weak links when it’s time to get wild, head into the wilds - or both.
All of our bikes are sent on a next day service. When your order ships, you will be sent a tracking link by email.
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, re-attach 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. Not every bike comes with pedals, please check when you are placing your order.
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.
