Engineered based on the high-performance mountain bike geometry of Whyte, the Portobello is one of the hottest urban hybrid bikes for 2012. Weighing in at 10.4kg, the bike features a 6061 hydroformed T6 aluminum frame that is custom-drawn and multi-butted with unique dropouts from Whyte.
Similar to all the Fast Urban bikes of Whyte, the Portobello guarantees high-speed maneuverability with its relaxed head angle as well as long wheelbase. On the other hand, excellent slow-speed maneuverability is offered by its shorter stem.
Rides are definitely comfortable and fantastically responsive with the 2012 Whyte Portobello Urban Hybrid Bike. Thanks to its shaped, buttered and uniquely profiled rear stays and a high-quality Alloy front fork. Also, its rear hydraulic disc brake caliper can be mounted inside the rear triangle.
