ReviewsBoardman Hybrid Team Bike 2014 26 26Generally very good, but a few details let it down I got this as a winter bike / commuter for the higher position a hybrid offers over a drop bar bike. After looking around, this seemed to be the best value for what I was after, and it is. Reasonable weight, the drive train is a good value option, smooth and never misses a shift. The wide ratio cassette will get you up any hill too. Wheels are for a mountain bike, a little heavy but built tough and wide enough rims to accommodate big tires and bags of clearance around the frame; 40mm tires will fit no problem, but the rims are too wide for skinny (anything less than 28mmm) road tires. It clips along at a fair pace, and handling is responsive. Seems to have a pretty short wheelbase, which helps in that regard. The biggest negative is the tires. I don't expect a bike to have amazing tires out of the box but the Vittoria Zaffiros are dreadful; two crashes in a week, once in light rain and another in the dry, as the grip gave out without warning and it was like the bike was pulled from under me. Got pretty banged up both times, the saddle, pedals and nice (pretty pricey too) Ergon grips I bought for this bike got shredded. The tires are also heavy for what they are, 400g! You can get 38mm touring tires at that weight. They spin up slowly, they're stiff, giving a bad road feel, and as I've established, have dreadful cornering grip. Also a real pain to get off the wheel. The tires aside, it's a decent enough commuter. Able to take mudguards, although the short wheelbase means they don't fit quite right, and a rack, although the nimble handling doesn't make it ideal for hauling a load. It's steady, not thrilling but perhaps a change of tires will make it better. 21 November 2014Great way to ride After years off cycling, this was my re entry into the sport and chose the Boardman Hybrid Team as I thought that this would be the perfect all rounder. I was not disappointed. Build quality is outstanding and the bike has performed faultlessly. 07 November 20146 Mths on...3570 miles of use. ...great bike in so many ways, and perfect for hacking about or getting to work on, buy it for sure, you'll love it!. Just a word to the wise, I have had to replace both wheels since May 2014 doing approx. 127 miles a week, every week in all weathers. Hubs, shattered and the bearings were like dust! Might be normal? But something to be aware of. I clean it weekly to de grease and wash off road grit etc, so it could have been worse I was told. Apex gears are fine, only needed adjusting once at this service point since buying it. Gears, well, 30% ish left on both chain etc, so shall need replacing in the spring, lasted a year on that basis. Thinking 11-28 over the 11-32, that is too wide in my mind after using it daily. Recommend proper bike fit to get he best from it; as with all bikes and SPD's. 07 November 2014Excellent Bike Bike is exactly what I wanted - speed sufficient for road and coastal paths, good looking bike too. 22 October 2014Boardman Hybrid Great bike and great service from Halfords. From order to owning the bike took 48 hrs. Well put together with no issues, approx. 200 miles covered so far. Steve G (Bexhill on Sea) 17 October 2014boardman hybrid team bike 2014 good value for the money, quality parts and frame, I would recommend this bike to anyone looking to purchase a bike. 13 October 2014Five stars for Jake at Whetstone branch Just bought the Boardman Hybrid Team today, so not as yet tried it out, will be building it up myself tomorrow and will update later. Just wanted to say a big thanks to Jake, I have heard horror stories about Halfords and the staff. But I must say that Jake, at the Whetstone Branch was absolutely fantastic. This is the second time I visited the store, first time to try and decide which bike to purchase, Jake served me then as well, he spent at least an hour with me going through the different bikes and their pros and cons. Very knowledgeable and enthusiastic. Really knew his stuff. Thank you Jake, you made my purchase satisfying, hopefully the Boardman turns out to be as good as your service. 30 September 2014Excellent Bike. I purchased the 2013 model (which is v similar to the 2014) and knew nothing about Bicycles, only ever ridden MTB's before this but fortunately I choose extremely well without knowing it. I thought I was buying a hybrid but this is more like a road bike with straight handlebars and I prefer this cycling position. Boardmans give excellent value for money and I can't fault the parts on this bike. I'm now cycling daily on this bike and occasionally I get the odd 50 to 60 mile ride in with no reported faults or issues. Gone through my share of inner tubes but otherwise I've not replaced a part. It can keep up with road bikes in the right hands, the gear ratios are perfect for almost any hill and the ride is very fast and smooth. Only criticism is the staff at Westcliff and Southend branches of Halfords, occasionally you get a good one but most need some basic training on bikes. If this bike doesn't ride correctly after purchase then it's properly how it's been setup rather than the bike or parts. Awesome bike! 16 September 2014
