  • Boardman Hybrid Comp Bike - 45, 49cm Frames is rated 4.6 out of 5 by 21.
    Rated 4 out of 5 by from A Quality Bike After searching ages for a decent hybrid with decent components at a decent price, I found this Boardman bike, reduced by £100. It was an end of season bargin. I reserved it, and then was called by the Halfords store, who told me the bike was the display model with a couple of scuffs and so they knocked off a further £50! Result. The bike itself is fairly light, the brakes are brilliant, the gear change is spot on. The negatives: the seat is awful, after a 40min ride my groin/inner thighs we're strained. Not sure if the next point is attributed to hybrids but when I hit 28mph(downhill and wind assisted) I experienced the front wheel/handlebars shuddering left and right, almost like I hit some natural reasonance. It may just have been the bumpy road. The pedal clips are uncomfortable on the top of the foot. I'll be swapping them out. I also rode the bike on a towpath it was ok but maybe a front suspension wouldn't have gone a miss. I may upgrade to this if possible.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Boardman bike Overall I'm pleased with this buy. it's well made and performs well. The gear change is positive and easy. Brakes work really well.It's lighter than my old bike and on 4 mile ride to work I get there about 5mins quicker. I've mainly only used the large ring on the front gear which has covered al eventualities. when I've used the smaller ring it's felt like I'm thrashing air so might be useful if I go to the alps, but not needed for my normal commute. I've had the bike for a couple of weeks and a few minor gripes. The pedal clips took a lot of getting used to and I may swap for normal pedals. The seat feels rock hard, getting used to it but may get some kind of padding. Also of note, looking at the size guidance it says 45cm frame should be good for 5'1 to 5'6 but I'm 5'4 with a 30'' inside leg and at the lowest seat height it just fits so if your short like me maybe have a ride first. Overall pleased I bought it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Boardman Hybrid Comp Newly purchased so no long term view yet, but seems excellent: light and responsive. A few very minor criticisms and observations only. 1. The front gear-shift selector has options for gears 1-3 when, of course, there are only two front gears. Odd. 2. The gearing is slightly on the low side, great for climbing, but not so much for very fast road use (obviously will depend on rider and type of riding). 3. Pedals supplied are poor, and there was no pre-purchase info on them: why not provide decent alternative options when ordering? 4. Saddle is a bit of an unknown yet, given early days, but I suspect I will have to replace it for something better. But, overall highly recommended.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent bike for my 12mile RT daily commute Ten years have passed since my delightful youth where I would scorn anyone who couldn't fit between two fence posts and there I was staring in the mirror after an overindulgent Easter break at my sendintry portly mess of a body and a mind now riddled with anxiety and stress. 'This can't go on' I thought to myself. I jumped on to the Halfords website and with a modecum of knowledge imparted from a work colleague, who regularly sports overly fitting Lycra followed by the musk of a school gymnasium i knew I needed a hybrid for my daily commute to work. Easter deals, great I thought, I can skip the rigmarole of getting work to organise the necessary paperwork for the cycle to work scheme, I'm already £100 up and they'd only balls it up anyway. So I fired up the Quattro and shot down to my local Halfords brimming with excitement that this decision will change my life forever, I will literally walk out a new man. Before this new lease of life could begin I was greeted by a very nice knowledgeable young man who said many technical things about the bike I had provisionally chosen just 15 minutes prior. I had admitted to him that my only real experiance of bicycles post driving licence was that they have a unique ability to raise my blood pressure and produce language out of my mouth that would bother the likes of Malcolm Tucker. With a sense that I could spend days pondering the benefits of an SRAM PG950 over its lesser cousin I promptly picked up the display model with 2 fingers around the handlebars felt that it didn't weigh half as much as my Raleigh chopper from the 90's and proclaimed that I chosen. The young man was jubilant and said that he would return shortly. I browsed the overly fitting Lycra rack wondering if this was my midlife crisis coming for me 20 years too prematurely. Before I had chance to dwell on the matter he was back, hesitant and with a little less vigour, 'there's some good news and bad news'. I wondered, had they a policy of not allowing fat sedintry computer programmers from volunterally subjecting the public to such an unsightly image. No, albeit I do wonder about the merits of such a policy, the bike which I had picked with such conviction was not in stock. This was my chance to back out of the whole thing, justifying my lack of commitment to a new me. Da*n, 'you can have this one for 10% off and we'll have one of our mechanics check it over right now so that you can have it today.' This was it, a further 10% off and I neither had to wait for one to be build or attempt to cobble a pre-packed one together at home with a butter knife and my partners beauty accoutrements. So with his recommendation and my aforementioned mechanical skills I opted to purchase the £25 super 1 year warranty, although I was pretty sure products legally have to come with a years warranty and in fact when my partner isn't busy recovering her beauty accoutrements from my man drawer she spends the rest of waking life enforcing trading standards. In for a penny in for a pound, besides I'm likely to mess something up within the first 50 meters of my maiden voyage. Armed with my new bicycle some XXL Lycra attire and a can of dry lube, I wasn't even going to question it, I promptly parted the bike of its front wheel and lobbed it in the back of the Quattro and returned home. This was it. It was time. I ran upstairs and displayed all the products to my partner that would ensure I would be a new man, healthier, happier man. The rye smile as i expunged the components required from the bright orange bag only spurred my conviction. As I adorned this new wardrobe I was pleasantly surprised by its soft touch against my skin, 'well this is actually alright' I thought to myself. Having reassembled my new vehicle to healthiness and happiness I was off and now when I'm comfortably sat on the heated seats of the Quattro stuck in traffic as the Lycra brigade stroll past 3 abreast I sit there almost in envy, wondering why did I not mount my aluminium composite chariot this morning and enjoy the fresh air and adrenaline. Oh, I may have got caught up for a few moments there, you probably want to know about the actual bike... sorry. TLDR Pro's : Excellent brakes, I mean literally these would stop a truck! Responsive, no brake fade, be careful though if you've never used hydraulic disc brakes on a bike before. This is the lightest bike I've ever ridden, once you get some speed up it just wants to keep going, the rolling resistance on tarmac is great. Gear changes are effortless and quick, a quantum leap in comparison to my 90's chopper. She doesn't look too shabby either with little flashes of decals on the wheels 120 miles down and no odd rattles, scrapes or bits falling off Cons: Moh's scale of hardness has a new entrant. Whilst usually reserved for minerals I think the seat manufacture previously used to make diamond drill bits 'Quick release' hmm, I'll reframe from making a crude reference but it does require you to unscrew the nut whilst dangling the bike above your head a few times before the lever will release. Probably a health and safety thing but it takes 15 or so seconds each time. Conclusion : I love my new chariot and if like me you look in the mirror and wonder what happened to that youthful physique as you stress about daily life. Keep the car on the drive and get yourself one of these. (Well use the car to get it but you know what I mean)

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Strange problem with new bike Problem with alignment of handlebars when collecting. £500 with £100 off!!! At home front wheel found loose. Tightened wheel as appropriate (own bike stand and 40 years motor vehicle experience, so a simple job) Kept coming loose after various rides. Took back to supplier, couldn't have tried harder, riding themselves and wheel still coming loose..New skewer And tightened spokes?? No improvement. Last resort by them,over-tighten skewer. Ok for now but little confidence on riding any long distance. Also had to set up gears properly after collection

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from 2000+ miles so far hi there I bought this bike last year for my 14 mile a day commute, the bike overall has been great and I have covered over 2000 miles so far so I have a lot of working knowledge when it comes to this bike, first things first I changed the peddles to normal plastic ones so I could wear normal trainers and changed the seat to a Royalgel coolx , the handle bar grips caused me pins and needles but as yet I have not changed them, the gear changes were smooth but now I find need for constant adjustment, the front gear changer is impossible to set correctly so that it doesn't rub the chain when using gears either end of gear cassette and an upgrade would be advised from the start, I have had to replace 5x spokes in the rear wheel and i'm not impressed by the quality of the wheels (i'm 15 stone) and the brake pads on the rear have just worn out. the tyres have lasted well and I've only ever had one puncture, I'm 5'11 and I went for the large frame but the medium would be just as good as the stems are good quality, for the price the bike is a good buy and the Halfords staff were second to none and really knowledgeable and helpful.......I just wish I'd bought the hybrid pro, maybe next year I will.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good spec for the money This review is based on the previous version of the hybrid comp which I have now had for six months. I bought the bike to keep fit so I don't use it every day. I've now covered a few hundred miles on it. I don't know much about bikes but it is light and has a quality feel. A friend who does have more knowledge said it was a good entry level bike and had a nice spec for the money. When I bought the bike I immediately got rid of the original pedals with cages and replaced them with the 'team' versions pedals with clip-ons. This gave me the flexibility to nip to the shops in ordinary trainers. I struggled with getting the bike comfortable at first as I got pins and needles in my hands and a painful backside from the seat. These problems were solved by fitting bar ends to give me a choice of hand positions and a Brookes b17 saddle. (The saddle was a great deal from Halfords in the black Friday sale!) The brakes are great even in the wet. They give me confidence on the biggest hills. The chaninset is not quite so good and still 'ticks' in some gears even after adjustment. All in all a great purchase which has inspired me to plan a 450 mile cycle tour this summer.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Bike for my Daily Commute Having been a keen cyclist many years ago I knew to some degree what I was looking for. After loads of research this bike came out top for what it offered at the price. I’m now on my fourth day of an 18 mile round trip commute and am very happy with how everything is working. Very comfortable riding position, smooth gear change and great breaks. I added mud guards and a rear carrier which adds to the weight (especially when I add the pannier I transport with me), but it runs very smoothly and I have been able to get in a nice riding rhythm that my late 50’s body can cope with.
