By BikeRadar | Wednesday, October 14, 2009 2.00pm
Boardman Bikes are to release a limited edition run of their popular mountain, road and hybrid bikes which will feature one-off colours and decals, and use high-end componentry. They will be available in December.
There will be 500 road, 500 mountain and 250 hybrid bikes, all costing £999 each and available via the Halfords website or through Halfords stores which sell the Boardman range.
Mountain bikes will get a white RockShox Reba Race fork with custom decals, white Avid Elixir R carbon brakes with green anodised fittings and a limited edition SRAM X0 rear mech with green anodised fittings.
The full-carbon road bikes get limited edition white frame and forks, yellow brake lever hoods and white saddle, bar tape and tyres to finish the look. Hybrids get a carbon fork, SRAM S950 BB30 carbon chainset, Ritchey WCS rims and Avid 7 V-brakes.
Andy Smallwood, Halfords' product manager for premium bikes, said: "Boardman is an award-winning bike brand, most recently achieving a Best Buy in What Mountain Bike for the Boardman Pro as well as many other accolades from the cycling press."
From our own reviews (see related links on the right) it's clear that these limited edition Boardmans should offer good value for money too.
We’ll bring you more detailed pictures of the new bikes when they’re available, but in the meantime let us know what you think of the limited edition models in the comments section below.
