I am strangely drawn to this bike. I have a budget of £1,300 (£1,000 of which has to be cycle to work) and I am going to Halfords on Monday to look at em - my mate has a similar budget but won't even look at the Boardman but will only get a Giant or Trek.
Am I wrong? will I have to suffer the sneers of 'pwopa' MTB'ers because I've sold my soul to Halford's?
Or am I right and I've bagged a bit of a blinkin biking bargain?
