reminds me of Lynn telling Alan to downsize and drive a mini metro. My inner snob says noPosted 1 week ago
Mine did for a long time but I fondly remember my (2017?) FS Pro for which I paid only £1000 and had Pikes GX 1×11, Guide brakes, and was genuinely a really good bike.Posted 1 week ago
It might be the best bike the world, but look at it.🤢Posted 1 week ago
Looks like an old SC Nomad, or one of the longer travel Whytes.Posted 1 week ago
Its gopping. Shame as good value.Posted 1 week ago
Isn’t the article just an advert for Halfords? Will there be similar adverts for other big bike shops who have a few bikes in stock? 😀Posted 1 week ago

Still got mine. Been a great bike. Not sure what I’d ‘upgrade’ to next tho.Posted 1 week ago
That FS Pro with the Pikes has surely got to have a strong shout for the best bang for buck bike of all time? My mate still rides his and has been all over with it.
Not keen on the looks of this model though but still good VFM in the current climate.Posted 1 week ago

That would be the previous model – they curved the tubes a few years ago. Of course, if they straightened the tubes it would look even more old fashioned, because all you’re looking at is a standard 4 bar suspension design.Posted 1 week ago
No one said that old fashioned looked bad. Change for the sake of change is silly. But then I guess they need to show that it’s different and that they can hydroform now.Posted 1 week ago
It just sees strange that they’ve bowed the TT upwards. As said above it looks like MK1 Nomad which also looks dated.
If you take off the tanwalls I think it looks fine, good value too.Posted 1 week ago
I like tan walls – all bikes look better with tan walls to me.Posted 1 week ago
I like Boardman generally (I have a boardman road bike and it’s been great) but I agree that it looks terrible. Not entirely sure why, but the front half is just wrong. I say this as someone with a Whyte s150 which I think looks nice, so maybe I should be disqualified.Posted 1 week ago
