Whyte 29er Bikes 2014

The Whyte 29er C Hardtail Mountain Bike 2014 will hold its momentum better thanks to the 29" wheels. So you'll maintain speed through corners and roll faster on rough terrains. Trail obstacles will feel smaller and you'll have greater stability thanks to the larger contact area with the ground. The 29" wheels means you'll have a lower centre of gravity when riding, so you'll have an extremely stable ride even when hitting the high speeds.

Staff Review for Whyte 29er C

It should be noted that the bike I rode belongs to my father - instantly jelouse, instantly wanting to find fault! Damn! I haven't had a bike put a bigger grin on my face, ever! You should know I'm more of a peddler than a point it down hill and go kind of guy, so the quick responsive nature and peddleability of this bike is bound to appeal to me. Still, I was blown away by how instant this bike gained speed on the flat and practically rocketed up climbs. The Whyte rides with the sense of glee you expect from a 6 year old on Christmas morning! For a bike that wouldn't be out of place surrounded by thoroughbred race machines it's trail bike manners are a real plus. If you're thinking of going 29er and possibly entering a few races, this bike should certainly be on your 'very' short list!

Whyte Bike Sizing Guide

Below is a sizing guide for Whyte bikes. To get the perfect fit please come in to any of our eight bike stores to test out the right size today!


Getting the right fit

The right size bike for your body size is essential to ensure the optimum experience, comfort and enjoyment as you ride. With sizing varying between the type of bike, the brand and even the model, getting the perfect fit can seem daunting. That’s why we’ve compiled a handy guide to help you get the correct size. 

Measure Your Height

Our handy size charts match your height to the appropriate frame size so you need to be sure you’ve measured your height accurately.

  1. Take off your shoes and stand with your back against a wall.
  2. Make sure legs are together and your shoulders are back.
  3. Place a pencil on top of your head and mark the wall (the best and easiest way to do this properly is with a friend to help you).
  4. Measure from the floor to the pencil mark you have just made with a tape measure.

Range of Reach

For most people to get the right frame size, measuring your height will suffice. However, you may find that your height is on the borderline of the range we suggest for a particular frame. If this occurs you need to measure the range of your reach or “Ape Index”. This will ensure you get a comfortable distance between the handlebars and your saddle.

  1. Stand up straight with your back against a wall.
  2. Life your arms out horizontally either side of you.
  3. Measure the distance from fingertip of one hand to fingertip of the other. This will give you your arm span.
  4. Subtract your height from this figure to get your Ape Index.
  5. If the result is positive (your arm span is greater than your height) you should go for the larger size of bike.
  6. If the result is negative (your arm span is less than your height you need the smaller size.

Stand Over Height

You should also consider your inside leg measurement when choosing your bike to ensure adequate stand over height. Stand over height is the clearance between the top tube and the bottom of your crotch. For mountain bikes we recommend a distance of 2-4 inches and for road or hybrid bikes 1-2 inches of clearance is required. This will ensure comfort when you’re stopped and standing astride the bike.

Our bike sizing charts take stand over height into consideration but if you have a particularly long or short inside leg measurement in relation to your height you will need to bear this in mind when selecting your frame size.

Riding Style

The way you ride and the type of bike you are into will also impact the frame size you should choose. For example, a trail devotee looking for an aggressive ride may prefer a smaller, more manoeuvrable bike size. It all comes down to personal preference and how the bike feels to you.

Our sizing charts aim to be as specific as possible so you can look up the particular type, make and model of bike you’re looking for. Remember, the sizes given in our guides are suggestions and should be used for general advice only. For the best possible fit  we recommend popping in to your local Leisure Lakes Bikes store, or call 0800 083 0888 for expert advice tailored to you.
