Well it's finally finished, I got the frame off weeman mtb at the forest of dean (karma) it's an 08 boardman hybrid (was a dark blue). I have built it on a retro theme and the spec, gears, brakes etc are exactly what I needed to suit my commute to work and back, just been out for a road test and apart from a few tweeks with the gears she is good to go

The spec is 08

boardman hybrid frame

Deore lx mtb hubs laced with mavic cxp 22 700c rims

schwable marathon comfort tyres 700cx32

Deore lx integrated hydraulic shifters 2x9 speed

xt calipers and rotors

xt rear mech

shimano road front mech

shimano nexave double chainset (dirt cheap, winter knocks the crap out of a chainset)

on one big nose saddle

semi integrated headset

easton stem/tioga flat bars

avenier pannier rack and bag

As for the cost of the build (less than £500) I don't think I could find anything in the shops that would do what this bike can, very pleased with the bike and look forward to thousands of miles worth of riding
