Whyte have a great reputation in mountain biking and for the last three years they have been making road bikes, too. The Dorset is no slouch and it delights on fast, winding roads. With skinny tyres, it’s a firm ride but the frame takes the edge off. The Whyte impresses with its build quality and details such as the security skewers. It’s a fine looking and versatile machine, well specced and worthy of future upgrades.
