Continuing the series about our bikes and why we ride them…this is Pat’s Whyte Caledonian set up for his daily commute to the Whyte R & D facility.
What a work horse, design and function in the ideal commuting package.
“I got it to test ride a non-spec sample front fork, then went back to the standard fork and carried on riding around town. Just added mudguards and a rear rack and it’s been a very reliable steed. The disc brakes work great, ideal for quick stops when carrying a lot of luggage around. Tyres have had very few punctures (glass chips mostly). Still on original brake pads and chain, after 18 months continual use and just some extra chain oil now and again. It still feels nearly as “tight” as a brand new bike”.
