I asked someone to look around for a pub/spare commuter bike for me and they went away and bought this and I felt obligated to pay them for it, but it really isn't for me.
Frame seems to be in pretty good nick alloy/steel forks, spokes are rusting and it has a...
My Carrera Vanquish frame. 48cm seat tube and 54cm top tube, size small.
As many of you will know I crashed on it when riding over a drawing pin (gits)
I’ve had it checked over the bike shop and the frame is fine but the internal of the carbon steerer has started to delaminate which means a...
Bought a couple of years ago for mini ck 1 from a CC member but its probably done about 150 miles since then , 650 b wheels 41 cm frame .

Anyone got their hands on one yet? They look quite svelte and the price quite keen.

There's a lot of play on my son's front fork, it's a Carrera Parva, I think 2018 as I bought it in October 2018. I've greased and tightened it but it's still there so suspect the bearings.
Here's pictures, one top one bottom. The bearings seem to be cartridge style but I can't get them...

I picked my bike up on Saturday, and have already put in 37 miles on it, going out every day since on a four-day break from work. This is a big improvement on my standard bikes, where I factor in the wind speed etc and generally only go out on the fairest of days. It was blowing a hoolie here in...
We (ie, myself, @matiz , and various reviewers) all know that the Subway E is the best considered, best value E bike available today.
On top of that, for all the faults of certain older models, Carrera E bikes are very widespread. Last year Halfords were proudly boasting that they sold more...
Just ordered the new updated SubwayE,
Its uphill in every direction out of town so I've finally give in and opted for a bit of help it seems ok for the price £1099, hydraulic discs and 60nm , battery size is fine for what I need and Halfords is only round the corner of there's any problems...

Having got fed up with the poltergeist that keeps changing the gears at the freewheel into two harder gears down as soon as I changed to an easier gear on my Carrera Zelos (Turbo Trainer) bike at the first sign of the roads of Watopia going uphill, so I decided to perform an exorcism on it...
Just converted my Carrera to a cheap 1x9 flat bar hack.

I was looking for a gravel bike with drop bars, something with a low gear (34/34) and able to use at least 28mm tyres, if not 32mm for use as a general all rounder.

This is my son's 'winter' commuter. That he isn't using for commuting because he's racing / training and won't commute on those days. Basically it's done under 200 miles and is exactly as per original spec except for Widget mudguards being fitted.
Not used off-road as he only rides the...
I have an old ie V-brakes model and I'd like to fit some mudguards that properly cover both wheels as opposed to the mtb type that would appear to offer very little protection. Any pointers? Thanks, Steve
I have a Carrera Crossfire 2 and wifey wants one also.
Just looked at Halfords website and the Crossfire 1 is £284 whereas the later 2 model is £260.
I would have thought it should be the other way around.
