    Whyte 19: unwitting candidate?

    "The Whyte 19 CNC machined Rear Dropout offers a method of stepless adjustment of the Chain Stay length from 415 to 435mm. .... When adjusted on the longer chainstay lengths the rear of the bike runs at a slightly lower ride height giving a slightly more relaxed feel that when combined with the long chainstay length really helps stabilise the bike on those long technical descents."

    This looks like a good candidate to me!

    I am on the verge of searching a Ti frame for 650b candidate and have to resurrect this thread to find out if any Whyte 19 rider (Ti or alloy) has made a conversion.
    Anyone with any experience ?
    Again sorry for digging up the old thread.
