I was after a nice new fast commuter bike and bought the Boardman Road Comp. What a laugh. The brake levers touched the bars and the brake pads weren't even near the rim. The cassette was knackered, before I even took it out. It's managed 13miles according to the cycle computer, thankfully not a Boardman, and it's been in twice to have new parts fitted under warranty. The Bikehut specialist even admitted he didn't really know how to sort the gears properly, he "hoped" the bike would be in working order after he "fixed" the bike today. Couldn't garantee it though. Please give your money to your LBS and don't give anymore to Halfords.
