The Glencoe combines Whyte's gravel/adventure frame with road plus tyres. These high air volume 650b tyres have the same rolling circumference as a 700c X 28c setup and give huge levels of comfort and security on even the roughest road surfaces. 1 x 11 technology offers simplicity and efficiency that cannot be rivalled and the TRP mechanical/hydraulic disc brakes add stopping power and control. Whether you’re an innercity, year round commuter or a back-road rider, the Glencoe is perfect bike to give you control on unpredictable surfaces. The Glencoe is the best all round road bike Whyte has ever made.

- The best all road bike Whyte have ever made
In an attempt to shed some pounds and improve my fitness, I took the decision to sell my car and get a bike to use for as much commuting as possible. I called up JP and we discussed the best fit between quality and price and eventually JP suggested The Glencoe. He felt that The Glencoe would be perfect for my daily commute of around 12 miles, which is 50% along the Worth Way bridleway and 50% road and tarmac.
And what an inspired suggestion this was !. I simply love The Glencoe. The Adventure frame combined with the 650b Road Plus tyres provide me with amazing comfort, security and confidence off-road, without sacrificing speed on tarmac. It took me a while to get used to the SRAM 1x11 drivetrain, but now that I have, I don't think I want to use anything else. The gears shifts are sleek, and so easy to use, and there is plenty of range to help me take on off-road climbs or whizz along at speed on tarmac. The Glencoe also comes with cable operated hydraulic disc brakes, tubeless tyres, and I have had mine fitted with two bottle carriers, a cycle rack and really snazzy looking mud-guards.
I have clocked up nearly 200 miles on The Glencoe since taking delivery of her three weeks ago, and I can really see why Whyte describe The Glencoe as 'the best all road bike they have ever made'.
So as you can probably tell, I am absolutely delighted with The Glencoe. I have also lost just over 3kg since I started cycle commuting so I could not be happier.
I should mention that I bought my previous bike from a high street chain ( whose name begins with the 8th letter in the alphabet ). The bike choosing experience with that retailer consisted of a quick ride around their shop floor to see if the bike felt 'comfortable'. Well it did at the time but it gave me knee pain, which is why I contacted JP a year ago for a bike fitting session. The session revealed that on my old bike, the seat was too high, the frame too big and the handle bars were too low. JP used this information to adjust my old bike and, hey presto - no more knee pain. Obviously when I bought The Glencoe, JP was able to use the same information to choose the right frame for me and setup the bike perfectly for me.
So I would like to say a big thank you to JP for his time, and excellent advice. JP's knowledge and passion for cycling not only led me to the amazing The Glencoe, but also gave me the confidence to start cycle commuting at the tender age of 54!!
