I dunno about the Boardman, but I rode a Croix de Fer a few years ago and really liked it. Would of bought it on the cycle to work, but problems came up in the job and it didn't seem worth it if i might not have a job there soon anymore!

Either way, i suspect you'd have a cracking bike with either. I went for a Kona Jake in the end as I found one nearly new for a bargain on ebay. Its useful being a tiny bloke who fits on lady sized frames! :lol: . The lass I bought it off had only ridden in a handful of times. I love those cyclocross bikes
