  • The boardman is likely to have better spec, the obvious one being Hydraulic brakes vs cable discs.

    This said gravel bikes are a lot of fun, clearly for the same money hybrids will have better spec, roadie shifters/brakes are more expensive, which takes a chunk out of the budget for specs at each price point.

    Personally I have a big MTB for big rides and the gravel bike for everything else!

    As you have both you are probably in the best position to decide. I would think.
