About Hard Tail Mountain Bikes
If you are looking for a mountain bike that can comfortably negotiate bumpy, cross-country, singletracks yet still be quick and nimble on the road, then a hardtail bike is for you. Hard tail mountain bikes have front suspension, weigh less and are more pedal efficient when the terrain is smooth, than full suss bikes. A good number of single track racers still use hardtails for these reasons.

So if you are searching for superb, quality spec hardtail mountain bikes at great value with a legendary service to match, then you've come to the right place.

Magazine reviews for Boardman MTB Team Carbon
Review from Bicycle Buyer
Replacing 2010's Cycle To Work scheme friendly bike of the same name, which garnered such acclaim from consumers and magazines alike, the new look 2011 Team Carbon though very similar at first glance has seen some modifications outside of just its price. Still a carbon monocoque with oversized aero profile downtube and carbon for, the box section chainstays have been beefed up to channel all and any power you generate more effectively through to the rear wheel and the Team Carbon now benefits from a BB30 bottom bracket which does stiffen things up noticeably. The updated version we can confirm has subtly refined and improved on what was already an outstanding entry-level carbon bike. It's still lightning quick, still incredibly responsive and still boasts a ride quality almost unrivalled of a under £2000, but its a slightly stiffer and slightly more responsive bike this time out. Equipped with an FSA compact chainset and Shimano 105 drivetrain components gear changes are smooth as you will have come to expect from 105, and the Mavic Aksium wheelset is a go-to manufacturer wheel choice for good reason, they're dependable and effective.
Would we buy it? One hundred percent yes, despite the increase in price on 2010's model this still represents incredible value for money both in terms of the components it's decked out with and more importantly the ride feel and excitement it offers the rider. Quite simply this has to be in the running if you're looking for an affordable carbon road bike.
