Strengths:    The stiff frame transfers all the power to forward motion and this bike is very stable. Rides well in windy conditions and is very light.

Weaknesses:    None

Bottom Line:   
I have had the Boardman Air 9.8 2014 Model for less than one month and my longest ride has been 65km. I am very pleased with the ride.The weight of my bike is 7.4kg with a Ultegra Groupset and Dura Ace C24 wheels with continental GP 4000s tyres. My other bike is a Specialized Roubaix and I must admit the Boardman is my bike of choice now. It goes fast when you put the power down. It looks stunning as well. My Riding is mostly on flat windy roads in Melbourne Australia but I will find some mountains to ride and update this review.

Which bike! I would be grateful for your advice. Boardman air 9.8 or Felt AR3 2012

Where I currently live, Singapore, the FELT AR3 2012 and the Boardman air 9.8 are roughly the same price SGD 7-10k (which is £3.5 - 5k and USD 5-8k). It is now time for me to upgrade my current bike and these are the two front runners. I have a Felt AR5 2010 and love it. However on a recent 3 d ... Read More »
