What’s the head angle on a Boardman pro 650B?
Otherwise, the FS Pro uses exactly the same swing-link suspension design, gives the same 130mm and still has an unflatteringly boring name. The head angle is the same middle-of-the-road 68.5 degrees, but the effective seat angle steepens by a degree.
What’s the difference between Boardman and Boardman MTB Pro?
In fact, Boardman has made a lot of changes including going a touch slacker at the head angle (now 67.5 degrees), and a touch steeper at the seat tower too. Each of the three sizes available now gets 10mm more length in the top tube; that’s to match up with shorter, 50mm stems, which are now standard across all sizes.
When to change tyres on a Boardman 650B?
We still suggest you change them as soon as possible, but at least you have a fighting chance of staying upright on the 650b ones on wet, rocky, woodsy trails – places the 26in versions of the same tyres are, we can attest, absolutely horrible in. If the handling is a great ‘just get on and ride’ balance, so is the suspension.
What kind of shell does a Boardman TxB 650B have?
New to forum so greeting bike friends. I have the above bike. I hadn’t rode it for the last couple of months as the weather was bad. Today i checked it and the crank is stiff and doesn’t move freely. I did some reading and it could be due to the bottom bracket. I checked the specs and i think it is fsa mega exo 68mm shell. Is this correct?
How big are the Dropouts on a Boardman 650B?
Look closely at the triple-butted frame though and you see the new reinforcing bulge behind the head tube, a curve at the base of the seat tube – there to sneak the bigger wheel in closer – and the cutaway rear dropouts with 142x12mm screw-through axle. The seatstays are also significantly beefed up, and Boardman has fitted dropper post guides.
