I've got a Boardman FS pro at the moment and if im honest its the best bike ive had so far. It seems to do everything i asked of it in and around calderdale.
Anyhow ive been getting a bit of bike envy with people turning up to our Wednesday night rides with shiney shiney bikes. So ive spotted this advert for an orange 5. The guy is selling it as a 2012 model but its clearly a 2009/2010 so no tapered headset, narrow seat tube and qr rear axle. The headset doesn't bother me but i do like the rear maxle and dropper post on my boardman.
Sooooo waffling on. The bikes on the money for the year(i think about 1k) and in good nick. Is it worth dropping a wedge of cash on the bike to replace the boardman (that will move to the missus) or should i hold out. If im honest i only really want it for the frame (fit a wider rear tyre) and slightly longer suspension. what are your thoughts?
