Whyte has added three 29er bikes to its 2012 range with two carbon models, the 29er CS and 29er C, and one aluminum, the 829. The carbon fiber frame made for these bikes is one of the best 29er hadtails on the market in terms of aesthetics.

Not only is the frame designed to offer maximum comfort. It can provide the best power transfer as well. Moreover, this high performance frame guarantees slab-sided chainstays, nerve-racking huge bottom bracket junction, and huge square profiled downtube.

With the Press Fit BB30, both the bottom bracket and the downtube of the 2012 Whyte 29er Bikes are made as wide as possible. From the tapered head tube to the carbon dropouts, there is a visual link created by the top tube, which flawlessly flows into the slender seat stays.

Charge will release a 29er called the 2012 Ti Cooker. As the Charge has avoided the carbon bike trend, the 29er is expected from a company known for making bikes that are almost exclusively in steel.

While Charge builds bikes mostly with steel materials, there is an exception that is the titanium. Aside for being light, titanium is more responsive and rust free. Included in the top quality components of this 29er is a nice sized downtube gusset and an added headset.

Ti bikes are available only as frame at the moment and the Cooker is presumed to use a 27.2 seatpost along with the standard cabling. Equipped with the Griddle, a new lock on grip, the 2012 Charge Ti Cooker will also feature a standard threaded bottom bracket.
