I'm looking to get a new bike for fitness purposes (an hour to 90 mins on roads and cycle paths going as fast as I can for as long as I can) and for family days out.
A friend of mine has lent me his Boardman CB 3XB Comp. I've loved riding it.
Unfortunately, it's no longer made, so I can:
a) buy the same bike off ebay for around £350
b) buy a Boardman 8.6 or 8.8 from Halfords
c) buy another model altogether
I've looked online , reading reviews and scanning evans, tredz etc but there's so much choice!
I'd appreciate any advice on good bikes for fitness/leisure at around £500.
Thanks in advance.
