Boardman Bikes FS Team 650b 2014 Product Reviews:
Previous range review(s):
WRECKED AND RATED ENTRY-LEVEL FULL SUS
"You won’t find a better full suspension bike than this for under £1,000. It’s hard to think how we’d improve it."
"It’s not just the frame construction and spec that impresses, for thankfully the Boardman isn’t all show and no go. It really does ride very well by any standards, let alone entry-level full suspension standards."

"Boardman's Team FS is an impressive step up from the old model, which was an excellent bike. The new model is light, amazingly well-equipped and certainly won't hold you back on the trails." "BUY IF... You want the most bike you can possibly get for your £1000."

"At 130mm travel, the Boardman FS Team walks the fine line between capable all-day riding and 'play bike', and does it well."
"Attention to detail is great, as is the working of aluminium, as seen on the marvelously sculpted rear postmount mount for the rear caliper." "The Boardman FS Team is as much bike, for as little money, as many riders will ever need."
