Ok, I need this bike:
The only thing is, it's not available in the uk, even through the special retailers that are listed on the boardman website.
This is really annoying, as this represents an amazing value bike, just under two thousand pounds, and it has SRAM Force, Mavic Ksyriums and quality finishing kit.
Why isn't this bike available in the uk? So annoying.
Any way, has anyone got any ideas as to how I can get this bike, It's driving me crazy.

An incident had happened in Bishopsgate according to Twitter. Little real information came through but an onlooker did signup to less us know the very sad news that a cyclist had passed away and that a coach was involved.
While dragging the parents around the south island this week, I noticed a French Canadian guy folding up his bike helmet and putting it into his backpack. I remembered that ages ago Dahon had advertised their "Pango" so I said hello and had a look. Labelled "Biologic", it was indeed the Dahon folding helmet and very impressive it was too. If anyone's interested it's available from the Biologic site for about $130 and looked really sturdy. Great for commuting I'd imagine.
My friend is buying a first road bike, and is looking to spend sub £600. For this I should imagine that she will be able to afford:
>Shimano 2300 or maybe Sora
I do know quite a lot about bicycles, so I recommended the following models:
-Specialized Allez 16
-Giant Defy 5
-Raleigh Airlite 200 or 300
The new bike is actually for a three day ride to Amsterdam later on in the year.
Being like minded with the designers of Cervelo bikes, you'll note that I didn't recommend any female specific bikes.
Lovely entry level road bike.

I'm in the process of searching for a road bike to upgrade from existing hybrid. Does anyone know how the size of cube bike frames compare to other manufacturers? I have read in other forums that the frames are smaller for some reason. I am 6'2" with 34" leg and have the option of a 58cm cube agree but it's an online deal so can't test it out beforehand and have no idea whether that is the right frame size for my build!
I am a new user on here, but don't let that put you off as I am a BIG user on Singletrack (sister website), so you can check my history on there for authentication of my history...
I have used this bike once after buying it brand new in August 2010 (I still have the original handbook & receipt). I bought it to get fit after a bad MTB accident which seen me off the bike for 8 months, but only ever seemed to ride the MTB as I didn't enjoy riding the road bike on the one occasion I did.
Needless to say this bike is in MINT condition!

I have a Planet X Ti Sportive that I'm thinking of winterising 'properly' - I currently have an old Bontrager rear mudguard on it but nothing on the front as there are no mounts on the Planet X fork.
Firstly - Crud RoadRacer2s on the fork I have or proper guards and a new fork? I have Cruds on my commuter (2011 Langster) but they are very tight on that bike and rub constantly - worried that this is a 'feature' of the Cruds. This'd obviously be the cheapest option though...
Ok guys, here it is-
Used to be my regular ride back when I did a bit of cycling around the hills here. Live in sheffield for most of the year now (uni), so I don't get to take it out much these days.
It's been well-used... lots of scratches/chips along most of the frame, but mechanically still works fine.
Heya- after many weeks deliberating over which bike to spend my long saved cash on i have shortlisted it to 4! any help on choosing the final one would be appriated, especially if youve ridden one of them! Or if you have any other suggestions please feel free to suggest- Im looking to spend around £1000 and want a Shimano 105 or equivilent groupset, with a part carbon frame/forks thanks! (also i would like to be able to buy it from a local bike store- so though ribble looks good id prefer to try it out before i buy it)
My shortlist is as follows-
