Carrera Subway Hybrid Bike (2011-2012) 18" or 22"
(Ladies' versions also available in Medium and Large for £20 more)

Inspired by sleuth's deal on the Carrera Vengeance, here's another cracking deal from Halfords (after double, or treble discount).

RRP reduced from £399.99 to £229.99 on the website.
Apply discount code B15HYB01 for 10% off Hybrid bikes, bringing the price down to £206.99.
Reserve the bike at your local store at this price and don't forget to go through Quidco or Topcashback for 3%.
Now, go to http://select.halfordsbusinessservices.co.uk/ and buy the right amount of Halfords gift vouchers (£210 worth), then at checkout enter the code ELGHAL13 (type it in, not cut and paste) for 10% off the gift vouchers (you may need to register first). Amount to pay £189.
You should receive your vouchers via Special Delivery the next working day and pay for your bike in-store with the discounted vouchers.
It's up to you whether you "try your hand" with the additional 10% off for British Cycling members, which costs £24 (see here http://www.britishcycling.org.uk/membership/article/halfords-discounts), by showing your membership card in-store. If they honour the extra 10% off then the potential price is £170.10 (for a £400 bike).

How does this bike compare to the one posted here -

http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/hybrid-bike-saracen-urban-escape-m-w-alu-frame-rigid-fork-shimano-tx-ez-fire-700c-1954741

I'm really new to bikes so some advice would be appreciated.

Never a £400 bike.

Not bad bikes for the money but the Saracen above seems a better buy to me.
#5
Heat for effort and assuming this all works (no reason to think why not) then all good :p

I assume you can reserve the bike you want, then wait for the vouchers before collecting in store? Also I assume you can get Quidco/TCB okay with C&C ?
#6
Tempted by this, I'm too tall for the saracen unfortunately, and these come in xl. Only thing is it seems a bit heavy for a bike without suspension, nearly 14kg.
banned#7
Is it 6" or 12" sub?
#8
All info on gift vouchers here:

This method was posted a year ago ;)
Halfords most certainly will decline BC membership discount request for reserve and collect order. You should try to buy in store during national discount days in which case they would be applied together but you would loose quidco/tbc cashback.

obvious difference is wheel size 26" here.. wider tyres and smaller wheel than.. the saracen urban (which ive just bought)

depends on what sort of cycling your most likely to do ..
also this one has mechanical disk breaks.. not sure of quality but stopping efficiency may be better..

think this one better if you do more light off road cycling and the saracen better for generic ..road commute / urban riding

I'm not all about brands as I build bikes myself, but specs wise, I'd go for the Carrera.
#12
I had this bike. For the money it cannot be beat.
I've moved on since, but I did love this bike.
#13
I ride on roads, gravel pathways, some light trailing etc... No real hardcore mountain biking, I may go trailing to cannock chase in future with a few friends, but it would be the odd occasion as apposed to regular visits. So bearing that in mind, would this type of bike better for me compared to the carrera Vengeance that's on offer on the other thread?

Forget carrera's. Plump for a boardman anyday. Cheap is cheap and you'll only be disappointed with your purchase.

hi all was going to go for the Saracen Urban Escape Hybrid Bike for my wife but they don't have any sizes in at all. is this the next best thing or is there another better bike I could het or find ?

my wife uses here bike every fay for the roads for work and don't realy want to pay any more than £200 may be £220 at a push and want something that will last as she has had 3 bikes in 5 years and the last one been she worst bike she ever had the Halfords Apollo. I have had cheaper bikes than the Apollo that lasted longer than that bike which was twice as much this is why I am asking about this post for help and suggestions.

thanks all
#18
meridiusuk this will be a massive step up from the Apollo, those are truly awful bikes.

The whole ride quality will be much better, especially the gears. These trigger shifters do a damn good job and changing gear is very smooth indeed.

I would be very surprised if you had any faults within the first few years of buying this bike, as long as everything is as it should be when you first get it then all should be OK.

this bike has genuinely workable parts, and it is discounted (albeit with a nonsense rrp). The specs on this should get it off road, and be workable, it won't be the nicest lightest bike in the world, but its there in term of functionality. I bet I could ride it as the local trail centre and leave many riders on far more expensive bikes behind on the hills!

This bike I like, those sub £100 supermarket bikes and sports direct specials I hate.

I've gone for this bike. I was looking for a rigid hybrid with disc brakes and this ticked all boxes for under £200. Should get me to work and back each day with no bother.

I'd ignore the people who try and downrate this bike. As a guy who rides a very very heavy apollo mountain bike up to 50 miles in one go (Taking a break every couple of hours to have a drink, etc) and having done over 1000 miles on that bike, I can only promote bikes such as this one, which is clearly miles better than my apollo, I'll be buying one of these for sure.

Yes, it may not be as good as the more expensive bikes, but unless you're an extreme bike enthuisiast, you don't really need anything more than this bike anyway.
#22
Does the chance to put the voucher code in on the halfords voucher website come after you have entered card details?
#23
No it's in the screen before checkout

My experience of a Halford's Carrera has been mixed, it seemed a cracking bike for the first 9 months, always very smooth, reliable with good stopping in all conditions with the disc brakes. I was cycling 100+ miles a week to work but discovered pretty soon after this that the cabling was not as it should be, Halfords do not fit the decent pre-stretched cables that come with (I believe) the gear sets on the bike; they use really the cheapest cables. It seems to me that the free 6 week service is mainly to tighten the cables. This is only my experience others may differ but its worth a heads up.
#26
It's a decent bike for the price. Have carrera subway from 4 years ago, second hand still going strong. Got one of the new carreras a few weeks ago too.

There are lots of changes in the way they are put together now. These wide tyres will slow you down. You'd need thinner tyres for longer distances. The wheel rims feel quite heavy. The gears are shimano tourey which is a decent set, but you there is little difference between top and bottom gear in the back on the back cassette. Commuting on it I always feel highest gears don't give you enough speed.

Maybe I just expected too much. On the bright side these bigger cogs in the dérailleur make it much easier to clean. I was sick and tired of having to constantly clean it in the old one. If you want a commuter bike imho look at the price and include all the modifications and extras you'll need. Don't fall for the low price alone.

I've had mine for 2 years and I've used it to commute to work every day. I've not had any problems with it during that time - excellent bike!
#28
I bet you can't get it at that price in the bike to work scheme :(
#29
Any suggestions for waterproof stickers and/or decals or alternatives, to make it look brighter (for teenagers) e.g. white (specialized) or any shade of bright primary/secondary colours

..would like to spray but then is it worth the hassle of buying this?
#30
One advantage of these cheaper bikes is that servicing shouldn't cost too much. I could have bought three of these for the cost of servicing my bike!oO
Being a relatively simple machine, it shouldn't be too hard to keep it tuned at home for anyone inclined to do so, especially as there's no suspension to worry about. I'd say having no suspension, rather than having cheap suspension, is probably a better option. All-in-all, it doesn't look too bad a deal for a usable, serviceable, ride.

I am looking to get into cycling to loose some weight and get fit,I have been looking at the Carera crossfire 1 and 2 and the subway....any advice on which is best,I like the look of the crossfire 1 from a colour point of view.....I will be doing around no more than 10 Miles per day ....any advice will be great

Personally I think the Crossfire is more versatile than the Subway. Crossfire has 700c wheels which are better on the road, but it can also handle light off road ok. Its also a more comfortable upright riding position. Subway is more mountain bike hunched over the bars riding position.
These reasons were why I bought the Crossfire over the Subway.

just tried and can confirm code to be working
...just make sure to use it in box under "Discount Codes" and not under "Free Gift Codes"
#37
I used to have this bike before it got pinched. I found it very good.
#38
ELGHAL13 working for anyone else? I tried typing it in the discount code box but it keeps rejecting it.

EDIT: You need to register first for the code to work. Working now :)
