Boardman Hybrid Comp £315 (or less with vouchers or British Cycling Discount) @ Halfords

20
Found 29th Nov 2015
Was £499, now with £150 off and an extra 10% off when in basket.
Extra 10 % off if you are a member of British Cycling, or there is a gift card voucher discount where you can save 10% on the pre purchase of gift vouchers and present these instore. May also be some Quidco/TCB
If you can combine both the voucher/BC discount/quidco, you could be looking at picking this up for less than £250

Great deal. It's worth paying a bit extra for the mx comp too. Hydraulic brakes and better overall spec.

How bizarre, that's the bike I own ! As you say great bike, but slightly different type of bike, the MX Comp closer to a mountain bike (suspension more of an all-rounder), whereas the one I posted is closer to a road bike (solid forks, skinny/smooth tyres, lighter, more road based)

Me too :). The front fork is ok for dropping off the curb, but a bit rubbish on anything else (I swapped mine for a rock shox paragon). I'm actually looking for a suitable solid carbon front fork now to lop a bit more weight off the front end.

Wow hot, I bought this when it was last posted at this price (2/3months ago).

I stacked:
- 10% British Cycling
- 10% vouchers
- 10% 02 discount
Forgot to do cashback though /:

It's an amazing bike, so smooth and fast on the roads, highly recommend.

Bought some Continental GatorSkin tyres which I'm going to upgrade the tyres to (still haven't fitted them on).
Currently researching into mudguards for this + good rechargeable lights.
Took out bike insurance the other day.

I'm on o2; do you have a link for 10% discount at Halford's?

It was an 02 Priority offer, don't think it's still on now, worth a check.

This is an excellent price for a superb bike. I have the 2013 version (review here: cyclesport.org.uk/201…mp/ - many of the components are still very similar) and its never let me down. I use it as my everyday commuting/nipping to the shops bike although its also great for family rides etc.

It's a very, very comfortable bike and reasonably light, especially at this price. You won't get a decent branded spec anywhere near this price range from any other reputable brand. It's one of the few bikes I've ever had which needed no upgrades at all after purchase - you can if you want, but it's absolutely fine as is. The only thing I changed was the saddle and that was pure vanity - I wanted a white one! The stock one is actually okay.

The Avid mechanical brakes are excellent, almost too good. I have Shimano Deore LX hydraulics on my Gary Fisher mountain bike and these are pretty damn close. For commuting, I would never go back to V-brakes.

As mentioned above, you can drive this price even lower by stacking various discounts. O2 Priority has expired but British Cycling gets you 10% off now and for all future Halfords purchases, too.

Would this be suitable for someone short? I'm 5ft2.. would I be better off going for a women's version or is there not much difference?

Same height as my wife. I'd say 5ft2in is pushing it - you'd probably need a 40cm frame, there's a women's version of this bike although it's not as heavily discounted:

Definitely get the right bike for your size - it makes a massive difference.

Membership card, just show in-store - costs £18 for the year. britishcycling.org.uk/mem…fan

I had this one for a few months and then got the team ,being using it for a year now,and apart from putting gatorskin tyres and lights on ,ive done over 4k miles and no trouble.

Hi,
Can someone please explain me step by step on how to use all together - business vouchers, quidco, £40 gift voucher which I already have, British cycling discount. Can these all be used if I reserve online and pay at store? I want this bike below £250.

I'll help you in a bit and tell you the procedure.

Thanks MRR. Will wait for your response.

How did you get on? Also wouldn't mind some help. Thinking of going for the one in the link in the first comment.

Thanks.

Current price: £329.99
Require purchasing British Cycling fan membership card - costs £18 for the year, and you receive 10% off all bike-related purchases at Halfords for the entire year!.

So 10% of £330 is £33.
£330 - £33 = Total: £297
Require purchasing total amount above (£297) in vouchers, this'll save you an additional 10%.
So go through here - Link to purchase vouchers off
Codes - MCOUNTHal09, ELGHAL13, NRTSCHAL13 - all give 10% off
So purchase £300 worth of vouchers, when checking out type in code and it'll deduct 10% off total. I would advise opting for the faster delivery option to speed up the process of receiving the vouchers, in case the offer at Halfords finishes soon.

So £300 worth of vouchers should come up to £270? excluding delivery

Now once you receive the vouchers all you require to do is go through Quidco or Topcashback as normal, search for the bike and reserve it at your local store to be built. Upon arriving at the store present your British Cycling membership card (email them to provide temporary card as you won't receive it in the mail in time) which they'll deduct 10% off the system. Afterwards say you would like to pay the remaining amount in vouchers, which they're perfectly happy with and won't question. That's pretty much it to be honest.

So just to break down the above savings:
10% British Cycling discount
10% Vouchers
Quidco/TopCashBack

Rough estimate:
£330 - £33 = £297
10% off £297 vouchers = £267.30
Apparently 10% off Quidco if you 'register card for in-store' (research into this) - if that tracks another £33
Making it £267.30 - £33 = £234.30

Total: £234.30 - factor back in £18 for British Cycling membership
£234.30 + £18 = £252.30
+ delivery charges - what £3-5?
You're looking to be spending in total £255-257 realistically, which is insane.

Reserve in-store and make sure you take print screens of online receipt in case it reverts back to full price (so you got proof). You will have a couple of days in which they'll keep it stored for you (make sure you make them aware/call about the delay). This gives you time for the vouchers and everything else to come through.

Anyways I hope I explained it clear enough, anything you're still unsure about do comment and I'll try providing further assistance.

Very good explanation! Really appreciate the time you put in for that. Thanks.

Thanks a lot MRR.

Just searching around for Halfords deals, now I'm paranoid if I buy a bike soon, an O2 deal or random 10% off weekend will come back around! So hard buying things when you visit this site regularly, nothing but the absolute cheapest will do lol
