Hi

I am in the market for a new enduro race bike for next year and next to the Spartan 29 and the SB150 I really like the new Whyte G170 29er. Infos about this bike are quiet rare, only one review. I was able to sit on a medium and the coil is very nice. Not able to really testride it though...

Does anybody has experience with this bike or whyte in generell? How is it dealing with them in a case of warranty? Are the bikes reliable?

Thanks

You say you got this as a race bike but i'd be keen to know how it jumps. It's on my radar and I enjoy jump lines and freeride type riding most but also fast DH's

As of now I cant say anything, as I havent ridden it really. I will report back once race season kicks in. If you like, you can follow on Instagram @patrice_fuchs

How is this going for you? I'm very tempted. They seem like absolute beast of a bike. Is the travel too much for all day? I do want to use it in the bike park occasionally.

Not many 29er bikes out there with so much travel.

I tested mine in finale ligure (check out my instagram for a little video), unfortunately I broke a carbonrim even though I was running cushcore. And the brakes dissapointed as well, but aside from that, I love it. Its time to upgrade now, put some strong aluminium rims on it, pump up the travel to 170 on the front, changing to Oneup cockpit and install a trickstuff direttissima. With this changes, it will be the perfect enduro race bike.

Its quiet heavy, so dont know how it will be as an only bike, since I only rode 200km so far (due to broken rim), mostly downhill.
