Hi guys, i am relatively new on this group.
I am located in melbourne Australia
First i would like to say i am pretty well experienced in purchasing online have brought $$$$ of high end RC helicopter kits and gear online, along with all the other usual stuff, so i am ok with the idea of purchasing a bike online..
Basically i am very keen on the Boardman brand that they sell... i have seen the Boardman MTB Team at my local Goldcross cycles currently selling for $1599.00 i had a look at in the shop and the specs seem pretty good and the bike feels nice and light.. i see i can get the same bike at wiggle for $1050 bucks.
What are your thoughts on the Brand, the quality etc..
For a couple of hundred extra i could get the carbon frame model
but reading the specs, the weight is exactly the same for both carbon and aluminium frames, should i just go the aluminium?
Also tossing up Merida Matts TFS1000-D
MTB Hardtails - Sport - Matts TFS 1000-D - Merida Bikes International well.. but for the specs and price on the Boardmans i like them..
I am looking at putting some slicker tyres on also.. for a bit more speed
with regards to the tyres i was thinking something like the following
wiggle.com.au | Panaracer RibMo Folding MTB Tyre | MTB Road Tyres
but i have no idea what sizes to use, they come in three 26x1.25,26x1.50,and 26x1.75... what would be a good combination? larger at rear and thinner at front? how does it work.
Thanks in advance for your thoughts on the matter
