    Weekend one with my new Carrera Crosscity folding e-bike

    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...

    The Subway E and other Carrera E bikes thread.

    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...

    The Haunted Carrera

    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...

    Carrera Subway - proper mudguards?

    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

    Carrera Parva - what does it really cost?

    For a short while, it said £180, down from £300, thus saving £120. Today I checked the site and it says it's £180, down from £210, thus saving £30. I never went into this bike thinking it was ever a £300 bike. Is this a bit like the never-ending sofa sales which have 50-60% off all throughout...
