Over the weekend I finished up the Re-build of my Boardman Hybrid Pro and I’ve been riding it for the past few days and I’m really happy with the result. The new shifters are pretty much identical to the Shimano M8000 shifters I have on my Foxy XR, with a light, positive action. The groupset performance is typical Shimano and I’ve faced no issues upgrading a 10-speed bike to 11-speed.

I’m not going to go in to too much detail on the rest of the components as I’ve extolled their virtues in previous posts but needless to say the bike feels fresh again.

I’ll post an update when the bike’s had more use to let you know how it’s settling in.
