Whyte 802 mountain bike - 25th Apr 2017 11:07pm

Got this about 18-20 months ago through the cycle to work scheme and so have had it since new and have looked after it really well. It's always been stored indoors and cleaned thoroughly often.

Very high spec bike, includes hydraulic disc brakes, rockshox airsprung fully tunable forks, british made, internal cable routing and sexy paint/powdercoat.

Review can be found HERE (<- this link says it's a 'female specific' model and while it might be, i'm a 5'9" male and the proportions are perfect for me, I also don't think it looks like a womens bike, it's mainly matt silver colour with little bits of light blue and pink)

This is a phenomenal bike with high specs all round.

Since these pictures were taken i have changed the tyres to WTB WolverineSS tyres which are still wide mountain bike tyres but offer less rolling resistance than the Maxxis Ikon's ao i used this bike to commute. Also the pedals have changed from DMR V8's to the Nukeproof ones which are light purple/dark pink in colour (matches the pink on the bike) amd the handlebars upgraded to Raceface Evolve 725mm wider handlebars.

If you have any questions at all, please don't hesitate to contact me. This bike was 750 for the basic bike when i bought it and i've upgraded several things as described above so i've probably spent upwards of 850 on it easily. Other than that, it's a really unique bike (i've only ever seen one other one the same as it and that was in Liverpool) and it rides really nicely. I did plan to get it converted to a 1x drivetrain with a clutched derailleur and a dropper seatpost but i have another bike with all that so can't quite justify doing it to this bike as well. I have all the paperwork here for you as well and can set the bike up to your needs if ypu want (adjust the fork air volume and rebound as well as seat height, position and angle if you want all that done)

Can provide extra/more up-to-date pictures as well if you want.

Price: 450
