    I'd have the Boardman because it's not second hand :wink:

  • I bought the Boardman HT Pro Ltd Ed back in Aug and although I love it, I bought myself a 2nd hand FS frame (04 Specialised Enduro Expert) as a winter project to work on... I've just however migrated all the components from the Boardman onto the S.. :D
