Whyte’s Victoria women’s bike has mountain bike geometry with road inspired components such as the trusty Shimano Sora gearing. It’s definitely been designed for the Great British commute!
The compact frame is tweaked to ride fast on tarmac and the Tektro Hydraulic brakes give responsive and reliable braking, although be warned, these do take a bit more maintenance than your usual V-brakes.
At only £699, the Whyte Victoria is worthy of a higher price tag and is one of the best urban bikes in the market, as it shares many features with significantly spendier flat-barred road oriented bikes.
