The Friston takes everything we've learnt from MTBs and puts that knowledge into a great value Gravel/Adventure bike package.
With hydraulic discs, ground-breaking geometry, SRAM's Apex 1 groupset and a dropper post so you can make the most of its capabilities on steeper descents.
We have applied our unique Whyte frame geometry to the Friston, creating a supremely versatile all-terrain bike. It's equally at home riding your favourite bridle path, winter training or even commuting.
Whyte's straight bladed full carbon fork with its tapered steerer tube and 12mm thru axle gives this bike great front end stiffness and steering precision.
Combined with an ultra-wide Whyte 500 riser bar this allows the rider to truly exploit the radical geometry.
All of our bikes are sent on a next day service. When your order ships, you will be sent a tracking link by email.
Every bike we sell is fully assembled and tested for safety by our trained mechanics. We then partly disassemble the bike and carefully re-pack to prepare for shipping.
Depending on the model, upon receipt, you may be required to straighten and tighten the handlebars, re-attach front wheel and attach the pedals. Please ensure that the pedals are greased and fitted correctly - the pedals will be marked L and R and have to be fitted to the left and right cranks respectively. Not every bike comes with pedals, please check when you are placing your order.
There is a guide in the box telling you which tools you will need and the steps to follow. This will require some degree of mechanical skill to put together and can need some minor adjustments. The less confident you are in this field the more we'd recommend having it checked over by a professional mechanic.
