Boardman Elite Air Signature Mens Road Bike 2017 - £3,200 @ Cyclerepublic

45
Posted 4th Jul

This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Boardman Elite Air Signature Bike (2017 model) from Cycle Republic (Halfords offshoot). Huge saving over the RRP of £5999

Only size XS left (for riders 5'6" to 5'8")

This looks like an incredible deal for the spec included. The Enve SES 6.7 wheels sell for over £2K on their own. The Enve bars and stem are worth around £600. And that's before you start on the Dura Ace Di2 groupset and the frame.

It's technically an older model, but beyond the paint-job and coming with last gen Dura Ace Di2 (9000 series rather than 9100) everything seems to be pretty current.

There appear to be 3 left of these

-------------------

Up to 3 years interest free credit available too (works out at 36 x £88.89 month)

And don't forget 5% cashback via Quidco (a potential further £160 back?)

-------------------

Also a few other older Boardman models on offer (but the above seems the best deal to me)

Elite SLR Race Signature £3,599 (down from £5,999) - only size S available
cyclerepublic.com/boa…tml
6.45Kg, Dura Ace Di2, Enve SES 3.4 tubular wheels,

Elite SLR Endurance Signature £3,599 (down from £5,999) - several sizes available
cyclerepublic.com/boa…tml
6.8Kg, Campag Super Record, Enve SES 3.4 clinchers

Elite SLR Endurance 9.9, £2,999 (down from £5,299) - only size XXL available
cyclerepublic.com/boa…tml
6.7Kg, Sram Red Etap groupset, Zipp 202 clinchers

Even dwarves say they have dwarfism so why rename everything every few years? PC brigade can do one!

They’re midgets/dwarves/shorties whatever. Just like I’m ginger! You can’t hide from the truth just because you can’t accept it

Wow! What a saving!!!
The new PC is not 'overweight'... It's undertall.

It is indeed... I'm also blessed with being the only colour that it's still socially acceptable to deride.
Hmmm, the average height of a UK male is only 5'9", not exactly much taller than the 5'8" this bike fits (5'8" is about the 35th centile).

TBH, even if the frame doesn't fit, you could swap the parts over to another frame and still have a bargain.

I was kind of expecting this to be voted ice cold, despite being such a good deal if you're after a mid-high end bike. But I just don't really understand why people on here bother to vote cold on deals they clearly don't understand?

Whatevs. At least I had the decency to say why I voted cold.

Speaking of parties, I'm certain we, thankfully, have very different interests and personalities.

One of my ideas of a very boring night would be talking about a friggin three grand bike all night!

Yawn yawn!

Plenty of kids out there racing who would fit this bike well, albeit definitely for those with deep-pocketed parents!

Yeah you're probably right. For someone who chooses to spend their free time trawling the Web to read about things that they have no interest in at all, and dabbling in the high octane world of Internet trolling, I'm sure bike racing must seem pretty mundane...

I hardly think reading through HUKD posts on my tea break amounts to 'trawling the web'.

If you must know in more detail, someone I follow had commented on your deal offering and I received a notification they had, around about my tea break time.

I do hope that this clarifies the situation for you.

Best wishes

Excellent deal for those that can ride it.

That's great. Maybe this deal isn't for you.

I commute to work on what sounds like a similar bike to yours. It's great for that job, but wouldn't be much use for road racing or doing long rides in the mountains.

People spend their money on things that they like. Personally I'm not bothered about having flash cars, giant tellys, or staying in luxury hotels, but I appreciate that other people like those things, and don't feel the need to judge or sneer at them for it.

I cycle about 7,000 miles a year for pleasure, transport, sport and fitness. Having a nice bike makes it more pleasurable and helps make you competitive in racing.

Sometimes it's about having the right tool for the job.

And the fact remains that this is a good bargain for what it is and for the right person. You could break this, sell the parts and make a decent profit if you wanted to.

"A very decent car too!My last car cost me £400. So far I have covered over 20000 miles over 20 months. Servicing, MOT and running costs amount to £300. I also have a push bike, it cost me £30, it was second hand. I get great pleasure riding my bike. Mainly off the road, and on pretty rough terrain. I've had it for over fifteen years now. It has cost me a further £150 ish in parts to keep it going,and it is still going strong. As am I! I really do not see the need in spending such a grotesque amount of money on a push bike. How very sad in life you must have to be to justify that kind of purchase"


Suggest you consider beyond your own usage, as mentioned above I see many kids racing on bikes far (far) more expensive than this.

Some of the 14 to 16 year olds I train with are so incredibly powerful [w/kg] (helps they are as light as a feather too), no wonder they are up there in the nationals. In my very limited experience (as I dont coach) the next generation of young 'uns are so much stronger than that those 5 years ago but as with all BC racing, the margins are narrowing thus sadly the arms race/demand for bikes such as these.

Some of their wheelsets cost more than my whole bike. I don't begrudge those with parents with deep pockets, as if I had the same amount of disposable then life is too short not to indulge (but sadly I don't). Same goes for people driving flash cars, they are objects of desire beyond that of utility. You can't take it with you.

I just hope all these lads soon find girls n'booze and put on loads of comfort weight to give us oldies a chance of keeping up with the peleton!

Yes. And it is objectively a very good deal, if you wish to have a bike to this specification. You don't have an interest in it. But you can't say it is a bad deal for those that do have an interest. No doubt they would fail to understand your life choices.

I am personally not currently or in the foreseeable future interested in a 3 bedroom new buiild house, 26" chrome wheels for an SUV, mobility devices for disabled children, blue highlighter pens, ad infinitum.... But if I see them offered half price, I won't rate them as 'bad deals' as I don't know what a good or bad deal is as they are not of interest to me.

HUKD is rife with personal opinion judging deals.

I hope this thread sparks a budding athlete to buy this bike, then get the marginal speed gain they need in moving up a category or winning an event, then they get sponsored by a local house builder/car dealer/supermarket and don't have to ever work again, hopefully eventually funded by UKsport with taxpayer money. Or just a parent uses this bike to get healthier as they love riding it so much, avoiding heart disease and then spending more time with their children over decades of able bodied life.

I think you are missing the point here totally, the point being that this bike costs £3200.

There is no justification whatsoever to spend so much on a bike at all, you can get a good one for a few hundred pounds.

People are perfectly healthy without spending such vast amounts of a bike as there are other ways to keep fit.

I'm glad you have had your very in depth ramble but I'm sure deep down you know only to well that this is a bad deal, after all it has gone ice ❄ cold

You think I have missed the point?

Please re-read when I wrote "....it is objectively a very good deal, if you wish to have a bike to this specification...."

I think you have missed the point to say:

"There is no justification whatsoever to spend so much on a bike at all, you can get a good one for a few hundred pounds."

For many people you are right, but not for all. For some people the performance benefits of this bike will make a difference. For some it will just be fun to go faster (which you will for the same effort exerted), while for others it may make the 0.1% gain needed to get a professional contract. They are legitimate reasons. They not be personally applicable to you, but legitimate to others.

I would love to say how much a bargain it was when I bought a set of wheels for £2000 that paid for themselves in a seasons prize money, never mind the fun I had riding them. But then again ""There is no justification whatsoever to spend so much"
