Have just finished my latest Cycle to Work scheme and am considering starting a new one. The last beastie I bought was my Boardman Hybrid Pro for commuting to/from work and it's done/is still doing a great job. My reason for buying a hybrid in the 1st place was that I wasn't sure if my back would take the more tucked position of a road bike. However I've been experimenting with tri bars/tucked positions and have sufferred no ill effects - so I'm assuming I'll be OK on a road bike. Would only use it as a fair weather bike and will continue to use my Boardman as an all conditions bike. My C2C work scheme is restricted to purchases through Halfords. On paper the Carrera Virago looks a good bike. Has anyone had any experience of this model? Any comments greatfully received.
