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 bought the bike used about 5 years ago for £100
Sold the 9 speed chainset and shifters for £55
Bought the bars and stem second hand unused from ebay £15
Lasco 42T single chainset £11.99...
I’m toying with buying an electric bike ,mainly for commuting,obv Iv cycled before so not new to this but I just find I’m not up to hills and stuff now , still got a cube peloton and I was out on it yesterday and today (my daily exercise done a wee loop only about 2 mile but mostly uphill )...
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...

Last 4 years doing night shift as a taxi driver and stuffing myself with...
Hey everyone, I'm eyeing up this bike which on the face of things seems a good deal for the price.
I live in Bristol which is far from a flat city so one of my main concerns is weight. This sounds to be around 14kg, do you think that will be ok for tackling up-hill commutes?
My other question...
I am reluctantly offering for sale my Carlton Carrera, frame No WG 6000986. This leads me to believe the bike was built in Worksop & dates back to 1986. I would describe it as being in reasonably good condition and I believe it is still fitted with many original parts. I acquired the bike last...

so i had a new 250w / 1000w kit left from another project. also a 15am 48v rack battery. so i but it on a used medium carrera vulcan. the bikes in decent condition for its age.
the kits 250w or 1000w so when on the roads you discount a wire and your...
