Boardman or voodoo or other suggestion.
Halfords can (or at least could) get On Ones in, and sell them on their scheme… Might be worth a look on the On One website…
The Boardmans are very highly rated though in terms of value for money, they’re a proper head down arse up style old school XC bike but you don’t half get a lot of kit for what you pay.Posted 7 years agoandysandesMember
Tried searching and couldn’t find anything
Getting bike to work vouchers through work for Halfords. These two look like they have similar spec. One ali and one steel.
I’m imaging that some people have had a similar choice. Who has these bikes and what are they like?
Also if anyone has any other suggestions around the same price from shos that accept the halfords vouchers.

Got a Boardman under the same scheme, nice bike, well specced & rides well. No complaints here. Voodoo looks pretty much on a par when seen in the shop though – for the snob factor (and exists – after riding my Boardman up the hills) it doesn’t make any difference as everyone will know where either came from.
Workmates have used the tokens to get Merlin Malts & Genesis bikes too so you’re not very limited.
Another workmate got offered a last years GT at a damn good price by Halfords so I’d phone the CTW phone line & ask if they’ve got any bargains going.

Check the Letter Of Collection Voucher first – you may find you can use it in lots of shops – if it is the same as the one our company does then it is only Halfords which adminstrer the scheme – they just “suggest” you get the bike form Halfords – under our scheme you can go to Condor / Cycle Surgery etc.Posted 7 years agouser-removedMember
Had to make a similar choice a while back – insurance at the time only used Halfords.
I was all fired up about the Voodoo but when I actually physically picked up the bikes I performed a total U turn – the weight difference is astonishing and I went for the Boardman.Posted 7 years agoRubber_BuccaneerSubscriber
Down to personal choice & a test ride would be ideal but I think impossible. Use their search to see if you can get to a store that has both & at least have a little sit on each & pedal around the store if not car park.
Beware though, if you get the Voodoo Wanga & I see you innocently cycling by I will point & shout “WANGA!!!!” at you 🙂Posted 7 years agochiefgrooveguruMember
The more expensive Boardman HTs are excellent quick lively singletrack machines. Once winter passes they deserve better tyres but the stock ones aren’t too bad in mud. Shorter stem is a nice upgrade too. Apparently they’re more comfy than heavier alu alloy frames and some steel ones but I haven’t ridden enough others to comment. For rougher rockier straighter trails I’d lean towards something more slack angled.Posted 7 years agoNorthwindSubscriber

“Take your vouchers to an LBS, a fair few of them accept the Halfords ones.
Alternatively, Halfords can order in bikes from other brands.”
And both ways you’ll almost certainly get an inferior bike for the same money 😕 Fact is the Boardman and Halfords ranges are class leaders, if they fit you and suit you there’s no reason other than snobbery to discount them. Whereas if you do get another brand brought in it’ll be at RRP.Posted 7 years ago
