New Boardman bike

edited June 2007 in Pro race
I see on the front page that Halford's are going to be launching an exclusive range of Chris Boardman bikes.

No comment on the Forums that I can see (I did do a search). So what do people think?

    I'd imagine that would be Dolan then, considering the links between Boardman and him in the past. I wonder who makes the frames then ? Dolan normally uses Dedacciai tubes, not sure which company puts them together though.
