Hi all, quick question.

I had my Specialized Rockhopper Expert Stolen along with wife’s Specialized Myka Sport the other week.

The insurance people (IVAL) have come back with an offer of the following:

Boardman MTB team £849
http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stor ... yId_165499

And

Carrera Kraken ladies MTB £349
http://www.halfords.com/webapp/wcs/stor ... yId_165499

Both are from Halfords, not a place I would normally buy a bike from but what are members views on these 2 bikes?

Spec on Boardman seems pretty good, but really loved the ride of my Spec.

    I would say better than you had lol.

    But I think you have a right to reject the offer, and make sure they fit and suit you.

    Thanks :-)

    I had a look at one tonight at Halfords, yes spec is better but personally i dont like the tires or bars.

    Also they were not to keen on me having a ride to see how it felt, but was told I might be able to at weekend.

    Will see what my insurance people say about my options.
