First saw this bike in Cycle Republic but was the wrong size. They got on their internal web site and found a small number in my size in other parts of the Country. They then informed me that they could not get them delivered from other Cycle Republic stores but Halfords could. Went into Halfords and they ordered it to be delivered. It took 48 hrs and all was well. The staff were very helpful. Very happy that I persevered with tracking one down in my size.I emailed cycle republic a nice email asking if they had a 2019 boardman asr 8.8 bike in a large frame. As I went into a Halfords shop but would have to get one ordered in. I got a very short email back. With no hint of trying to help what I have asked for.
Going to get a cannondale instead.
Really ? Ballcocks. It's a bike. The FS Pro isn't flexy, so why would the 29" ers be.I cant say I'm particularly a fan. I certainly don't hate them, but there have been a couple of models in particularly that were lacking, most notably some 29ers where the frame was so flexi the rear wheel would touch the stays when under power.
The game has moved on and they now occupy a part of the market that was thriving 15 years ago, but which has diverged and moved on since.
Is that the whole bike or just the frame? The viking is a 30+lb steel frame. I think my good bike is a 8k (17.6lb) Ti frame. Add bars, wheels, groupset cages etc you can probably add another kilo or two. I've seen complete bikes at under 6kg14kg is my Boardman FS Pro....
