What we're excited about this month
Here’s what we’re excited about this month: Whyte Es, techno flapjacks, big noisy turtles, cute T-tools, kid corsets, marvellous multicolour dream bike bags and more…
Whyte E-150 RS, £5,250
Frame is made from 6061 T6 aluminium — Whyte uses carbon on its conventional bikes but says that with e-bikes weight saving is less important than keeping the price low. The E-150 RS is £5,250, making it about £250 more than the YT Decoy CF Pro. RockShox suspension — Lyrik Select RC with 150mm travel up front and a Deluxe RT shock. Whyte has sensibly applied big stopping power to the E-150 with Code R 4-pot brakes complete with 200mm rotors. Read our full story here.
