- Cycle to work scheme, what should i get?
Did a lot of research on this one in the summer. Started looking for a steel hardtail but kept coming back to the Boardman HT Pro. No one else can touch the spec. for the money. So I got one in July. An astoundingly competent XC bike it makes me grin ear-to-ear for hours after getting off it. YMMV
Only weak spot is the tyres, and if your big like me you might wany to factor in a bigger front rotor. NB if you read reviews of 'em they may say it comes with a Ti railed saddle. They don't, Cro-Mo only.Posted 8 years agogrummMember
Quite fancy a P7 meselfPosted 8 years agoAlasdairMcMember
I'm swaying towards a GT Aggressor Elite from Halfords as it comes with Maxle Revs and the spec is alright otherwise. Details are pretty sketch though, and the combination of lightweight frame plus 140mm forks may not be the best.
Anyone got any experience of this bike?Posted 8 years agobikesr4ridingMember

Orange Crush (just add £80), or Marin Rocky Ridge (add £150)
Yes and yes, 2 very good handling, confidence inspiring hard hitting bikes.
2 friends have got rocky ridges, love em.
Depends what kind of riding you want it for though…
Have to say, these are the two I whittled the choice down to when considering the options, in addition to the Boardman Pro…Posted 8 years ago0pt1calMember
My scheme means I'm stuck with buying it through Halfrauds, it would be easy if they just gave me vouchers, but they don't….I was really struggling to buy a 'complete bike'that I liked for £1000, especially with all the recent price increases pushing the likes of a P7 or Blender over the £1000…..so I'm just buying a bike with the best spec stripping it and selling all the parts. I'll then build the hardtail I actually want instead! 🙂Posted 8 years ago
