Spec for spec, this bike runs rings around the Rockhopper comp. With specialized rockhopper, you mainly pay for the brand name.

You could sell this on for parts and make a mint

Why? You know nought about the pedigree of this bicycle. I bought a Halford Carrera Fury (rrp £600.00) 18 months+ ago for around £430. I did on line research, finally being persuaded by What Mountain Bike magazine who declared it the sub £1000.00 category winner of that year. A stunning effort by Halfords. The Boardman came out better in the assessment for quality, balance and enjoyment.

Suggest u qualify your rash comments when u post.

The Fury puts a gr8 big smile on my face every time i jump on it. Gr8 fun off and on road. I really luurve all of it but the disc brakes make me smile the most. They stop u on a sixpence.

Why do people vote these cold because it's Halfords, It's a bike, Not an Aston Martin, You can save a mint with some of the deals from Halfords, I picked up a 2010 Hybrid Team just before the model change for 400 quid, Wasn't gonna turn that down just cos it was Halfords Most people can repair a bike themselves, And if you can't, Take the saving and go to a another shop for servicing if you think, Or know there better.

I did at the start of this year. Done over 950 miles on it so far (on and off road) and the only problems have been a few punctures.
Way better than the GT it replaced.

As for Halfords my local is brilliant, the staff actually know what they are on about and what they are doing. A few years ago it was the exact opposite.

Mate bought one of these, the X5 mech & shifters is utter trash but other than that a pretty well balanced HT for the price

Probably an ok frame, but the spec is very basic, and not a great deal.

I have a Boardman Hybrid Comp 2011/2012 and it has been amazing. Great build quality, ride and performance.

These bikes look amazing in white... but they also attract a lot of attention - so make sure you buy a good 'U' lock, as well as a cable lock for added security.

Also, I have the boardman pro, it's an awesome bike
#24
Anyone know what tyres are on this bike?
Continental Mountain King 26"x 2.2" or Schwalbe Rapid Rob 26"x2.25

description says mountain king, but specification says schwalbe..

thanks in advance.


hot by the way.
#25
pic shows Mountain King but???
#26
£600 and no mudguards or pedals?
#27
It's OK but there are other bargains to be had out there, especially at pauls cycles

Ignore the name on the downtube though, almost all bikes and components are made in the same factories so unless the designer has stuffed up the geometry it's just as good as a similarly specced Cannondale / Specialized / Giant etc.

I have no intention of knocking this deal, it's a decent spec at the price. In answer to your question though, best value and spec at this point is usually the RR8.1 from Decathlon.

Does anyone know how this compares to the Cannondale trial bikes? Similar kind of weight/frame etc?

Bought a 2012 Boardman Team Hybrid few weeks ago, great bicycle, BUT..........most people don't need a mountain bike, if your a road user, buy a road/hybrid, if you iz regularly riding on mucky shiiitttte then this is a good bike

ezzzzy now :-)

great bike,have to agree with the previous comment though,about people who buy mountain bikes really dont need one.be better off with a hybrid or road bike

Yes, that too looks like good value. http://www.decathlon.co.uk/rockrider-81-2012-mountain-bike-grey-id_8168918.html#avantages

Just to repeat what's already been said:

Join British Cycling for an extra 10% off - including sale items, do it through Quidco for £5 rebate (http://www.quidco.com/british-cycling/). They can even email you a copy of your membership in case you don't want to wait.

Also, register your debit/credit card with Quidco - that way you'll get 3% quidco when you reserve the bike online, and another 3% when you pay in store with your registered card (I done this on a Boardman Team Hybrid and its all been paid, took ages though).

Canondale, Specialized, Trek, Giant etc are nowhere near the level of Halfords mountain bikes eg Carrera, Voodoo, Boardman . They just don't even compete in the UK market. eg a £600 specialized bike would be comparable to a £350 Halfords bike at best

No way I would get a bike from Halfords, would take me a good ten minutes to work out which one is mine at work amongst the hundreds of cycle2work boardmans/voodoos/carreras.

How quick could i get the discount if I join British cycling would make this cheaper than the RR 8.1 from Decathlon.
