I am just a begiiner myself but I have read lot's of good comments about Halfords carrea bikes given their cost. But like I said ...I know nothing. I jus tride a daws galaxy touring bike.

I'm not an expert by any means (although I changed the headset on my bike last week) but I have a Dawes and adore it...never heard anything bad about Dawes either.

I hope this will be pertinant,but i bought myself a halford carrera vulcan,other than the bottom bracket giving up on the first wet days ride(the shop replaced it with a shimano sealed unit,been perfect since)and i changed the twist grip for rapid fire type levers(again the shop said if i wasnt happy with twist they would give me rapid fire at half price)i found it to be fine,havnt used it much lately,im hoping to change that though.this was a few years ago so i hope it helps in some way.

oops just saw the date :eek:
