    Just signed up as seems a great place for info!

    I have. Gt avalanche 1.0. Love it but decided I fancy a hybrid...

    I live in Norwich so pretty flat and plan to ride on local back roads.

    I think I'm looking at a boardman comp...

    However visited pauls cycles today. They have. 2010 gt tachyon 1.0,. £999 down to £599.99

    What would you guys recomend? The boardman or the gt?

    The boardman had discs the gt standard brakes. Guy at Paul's cycles said pads a lighter and work just as well!

    Love the look of the boarman copm but which with the 50 quid off will be £500...

    Looking forward to your replies as really wants hybrid...

    Thank you

    What is it you like about hybrids?

    Out of those 2 I'd go for the Boardman, with the compact chainring (less gears to fiddle with), hydraulic brakes (awesome stopping in wet and dry), and full carbon forks and crown (kudos!). Not a bad looker either.
