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...
Not posted here before so i hope this thread is in the right section.

As per the title I’m looking for a Carrera Crixus in the Grey/Green colour scheme.
Ideally looking to spend around £150 but willing to pay more for a mint one.

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.
Ive been offered a used Carrera subway 1, which may be too good an offer to miss. The Subway 1, seems to have 27.5x1.95...
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.

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...
Just picked up this very tidy and original Carrera which as some on here will know I have a bit of a soft spot for.
With a great retro splatter paint finish on Reynolds 501 tubing .
And Shimano exage 300 ex running gear . . Just needs some new tyres and a tweak on the rear spokes .
Well, I was thinking about it and I'd booked a test ride but tonight I thought I'd fill in the C2W bumpf in the expectation that it'd be a week or so before it was approved when, to my surprise, it was approved immediately! A wee shufti at the Halfords website and there was one available for...
