  • Boardman MHT 8.9 Mountain Bike is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 4.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great HT bike with nice kit on it Got this for my 12 year old. This is a great bike for what I paid Reba forks are super plush and easy to setup, the SLX group works flawlessly as you would expect, Shimano brakes now they have bedded in work great. Geometry feels great to ride bolt through front and rear axle keep it stiff. My lad throws it around the trails and loves it. As usual with Bordman you get pretty good kit on the bike compared to the same price as long as your not a brand snob.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Superb Great bike, especially for the money! The bike looks ten times better in person than it does in the photos!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great components for the price. Excellent bike for the price, just upgraded from the Boardman pro 26" 2x10. .... 29er 1x11 megatooth oh yes there's no going back . The only thing I might change is the chain ring from 32t to 34t to give me a bit more down hill speed and maybe the saddle for an SDG BEL-AIR, but that's a matter of personal taste as .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Firstly the pictures don't do it justice. The bike looks so good. Performance is excellent, the ride position is good and the overall balance is perfect. The brakes perform well, so sharp and well graduated. The drive train is clean and smooth. The forks cope so well with all differing undulating conditions. Overall so enjoyable to ride, excellent!
