I was given one of these when i started working for Halfords 15 months ago and am still using that very same one today. I have been a cycle mechanic working full time at two separate stores and this multitool has never let me down. I have literally used it for 5 out of 7 days every week for those past 15 months and it is still going strong. You can practically take apart a bike with the 8 different tools you get.
Excellent value for money and a must have for anyone who owns a bike whether you want to do your own maintenance or just move your seat post up.
I very highly recommend this product
I recommend this product!
I like:durable, great choice of tools, great value for money

Perfect for the Monday commute or the Sunday family ride, the Boardman MX Comp is hugely versatile.
 

Handbook

Where can I find the handbook for the MX Comp 2014.
Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
If you bought it new, a handbook should have been provided with the bike. If not, go back to your local store and ask them for a Boardman bike handbook (all Boardman bikes use the same generic handbook, regardless of model).

are you able fit wider tiers to the standard wheel?

Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
Yes, you could potentially fit up to 32mm wide tyres on the stock rims, however the frame/forks may not be wide enough. 28mm should be a safe size for both.

Halfords own 700x18-25c presta valve would be the direct replacement innertube.

What is the widest tyre I could put on these wheels?

Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
The tyre equipped as stock is 23mm wide. I would not suggest going any wider than 32mm, although that would be pushing the limit.

Can panniers be put on this bike and or the ones in the mens range?

Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
You can fit a pannier rack but it would have to be a 'Beam rack' i.e. one that attaches to the seatpost. There are no mounts available for the conventional fitting racks.

The Spiderman Boys Bike Helmet will equip your little action hero ready for new adventures.
 

Which way round should the helmet be worn?

Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
The adjuster should always be at the back of the helmet when worn. In the picture above, the front of the helmet is on the right hand side.

what gear shifters do I need?

Hello, I have broken the left front gear shifter on my bike,which is the replacement please ?
What could I upgrade to ?
Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
The gear shifters supplied with the bike are SRAM X4 3x8. As it is the LH side that is broken, you will need a 3 speed SRAM shifter. It does not have to be the X4 model, any 3 speed will work.
