Was thinking of getting a cycle to work bike, but has to be via Halfords, and hence would probably be a Boardman.
Rather than getting the hybrid like I did last time, it seems sensible to get one of those drop handlebar bikes that they do with the skinny tyres.
The problem is that one of the reviews I saw says the geometry is very racy, and that is completely not what I'm after. I'm after comfort and long distances rather than races. (To give some perspective, I did the Fred last year on the Hybrid and it seemed ok)
So, the question is whether flipping the stem (anti slam) will give a similar geometry to an audax/sportive type bike with a longer head tube? Or will I just end up looking like a pillock whilst having a sore back?
Also, anyone with recent experience of trying to combine the cycle to work voucher with British Cycling discount? £15 to join seems like a good way of getting another £130 off
