Was having a nose in my local Halfords and was looking at the latest boardmans . Spotted this burnt orange coloured gravel bike . Have to say quite light and very smart looking and right on the money for c2w etc . A gravel bike is on my n+1 list ;-)
I was wondering if anyone else has an MTX bike? What is the difference between that and a hybrid bike? Additionally, does anyone know if the Boardman MTX 8.6 is any good and if it would cope with cycling along canal towpaths, and the odd bit of grass and gravel? I don't really want a...
A friend has a Boardman CX Comp for sale and I`m sorely tempted as I know he bought it for a charity ride, hated cycling and has ridden it since - he is a bit strange lol
I do have a question about the tyres though. The bike comes equipped with Schwalbe Tyrago w/ Kevlar Guard (700 x...

I currently have a Pembleton Brooke hybrid bike and the mud guards are not particularly good and cannot cope well with winds, or occasional bumps on the country roads I frequently cycle along in the Aylesbury Vale area. I created a post last week regarding upgrading my bike and have decided...
My other half’s Boardman is for sale. It has a Claris groupset and is an ideal starter bike.

Hi all. I just got a new (to me) Cyclocross bike and have some questions regarding gear cables, namely for the front derailleur.
Do i need to by specific cables/housings for this bike or do they sell 'universal' ones?
What's the plastic guard that routes the cables under the Bottom Bracket...
I have a Boardman 29 er, 2015 model, which I love and fits me perfectly but I feel I could get a little better speed with a wheel upgrade. I do not have a clue where to start except the bike cost £900 I probably do not want to spend a huge fortune. Most gratefully for any advice.

This is a friend's bike (his girlfriend's previous partner bought it new and only rode about 150 miles on it). I have no idea how much it is worth, but if anyone is interested, I can put you in touch with the seller. He lives in Ipswich.
I'm now fed up with the creaking from my SRAM PF30 bottom bracket. The rest of the bike is faultless, and after 8200 miles I figure it owes me nowt, so I want to get rid of the PF30. My current thinking is to use a Wheels Manufacturing BB which from what I can find will fit (the BB shell has a...
Just picked up a Boardman Comp MTB. It is used and needs a bit of TLC but at the price I paid I am very happy. Frame is in good condition as are the wheels and tyres. Some bearings may need attention!

Cringed through the interview in the Guardian.

Every now and then (and increasingly often), I seem to lack drive between the chainring and cassette/rear wheel. On occasion I have a sudden rotation of the crank, never a huge amount but maybe 1/4 - 1/3 of a rotation with no associated turn of the rear wheel.
It is not the chain slipping...
