Postby silencesound » Mon Dec 10, 2012 15:17 pm

Anyone know have they stopped making the fs pro ? Only showing the team model on halfords website.

Will have a check tomorrow night at work, was wondering the same thing myself. It's still saying they are sold through halfords on the boardman website...but not on the halfords website.

heard on the grapevine from a reliable ( ish) source that boardman are pulling out of halfords as they are sick of the negative image that halfrauds are giving them?

i love my HT Pro

but i must say halfords do have a bad image most of the time for poor customer service

my bike is under guarentee but unless its a major issue like the frame cracking, il learn to fix it myself or take it somewhere else.

they sell some great bike like the boardman and voodoo range, but thats all.

Had a look and they come up obsolete but are still available from the supplier, so I guess special order. Also they have just released a new range through halfords and "apparently" bringing more in Feb 2013...

it's the same with some voodoo bikes too

it will be time for a new range to come out these are 2011/12 bikes - the 13/14 will be comming out soon...
i guess they are just running down their stock before the change I'd take a bet the new ones will be more expensive with lower spec - seems to be the way of the world now :(

That's what Teh Internetz said when Halfords kicked GT- end result was that GT all but vanished from the UK. The Boardman/Halfords relationship goes far deeper than the GT/Halfords one did, Boardman won't walk away as without it they have almost nothing.

I just can't see halfords being sold out of the pro model. From what i see on this forum and other places i always got the impression that the fs team would be the bigger seller. Any other halfords employees know any more info about whats going on ?

It shows on the system as being obsolete and being a vendor only item, its the same system in every single Halfords store so each one will show the same. There are probably a few left in other stores from old stock but there are none available from the head office.
