Anyone thinking of buying,check to see if your employer has joined the cycle to work scheme as it works out much cheaper and you pay for it weekly/monthly direct from your wage.

Probably from the people who will say you can get a full suss from tesco for £69

Seems like a good price for a good spec bike to me

I have a Boardman, if I was buying this bike, I would buy it in the box and set it up myself.

Boardman bikes are certainly not run of the mill...

I'm going to be getting this to replace my Scott Aspect 10 Hardtail. Was looking at the Spark 70 but the Boardman FS is better specced and cheaper. Quite like the idea of the 2x10 gearing too.

Here's a review, 4.5/5 stars ain't bad :

Apologies for the repeat posts, didn't realise my phone kept reposting my comment every time I refreshed the post.

I was saying halfords was 'run of the Mill' not Boardman Bikes

I would consider carefully before buying this. THere are alot of 2012 bikes reduced at the moment and companies very happy to price match and beat each other.

For example kona tanuki 2012 £1200 to £1020 - email them and they will bring this down to below £1000. I emailed this company and they took £75 off when I stated I would purchase the same bike from a different store.

I think boardman offer good value but if you go for this take it to a proper cycle shop and ask them to check it out to ensure everything set up proper.
