Used to have a Subway II a few years back - was a really good bike and for this price I don't reckon you can go far wrong.

There is stock but its very low.

If the site says store is OOS it could mean they have just 1 left as that wouldn't show.

Stock in North Wales & Chester if it's any help?

Hey a proper bike (not a BSO) on HUKD that's not cold!
#9
Well worth the money imo. The BSO riders out there won't know what hit them if they ride that. :-P

This is a great bike for commuting. It's a hybrid so the tyres are thinner which means you'll go a bit faster. It has an aluminium frame which weighs less than the steel frames you find on many of the cheapy bike deals on here. Even has discs brakes which is quite cool, if somewhat unnecessary imo.

That's just marketing ballsh't...honestly no one except some poor unsuspecting mugs has paid more than £300 for this bike as that is all it is worth....Even though halfords are showing those prices in the price history, they get around it buy having 10-30-30% discounts that are applied at checkout.

This is still a hot deal, so thanks for posting it.

I bought one of these a couple of weeks ago when it was last advertised. Managed to pick it up for less than £200 plus quidco plus the £10 voucher for spending over £50.
If you get the chance I would let them set it up for you it can be a bit tricky if you don't know what you are doing.
I would definately recommend spending a few quid and changing the tyres over, I bought the continental city contact tyres on as the majority of my riding is cycle path and dirt track, they really make the difference making it much smoother and faster to ride.
A Great price if you can get one.
#12
I've reserved one of these bikes at a local Halfords but can anyone advise whether it will be better than the Claud Butler Urban 200 (link) that I had planned on buying for a similar price?

I just want a bike for general fitness, possibly commuting to work etc.

Thanks in advance. :)
#13
I'm tempted. Shame it's only 21 speed, looking for a 24 or 27, but I guess you wont get that for this price!
banned#14
Bez...this is the better bike in my opinion, better derailleurs, better forks and mechanical disc brakes amongst other things.

Read a few threads or ask questions on this forum....save to your favorites for advice on servacing and other bike related things you may need to know after your purchase

You obviously know very little about bikes then, don't confuse carrera with halfords budget brand apollo, these bikes get recommended on bike forums by knowledgeable posters because the frames are well made and well spec'd with branded parts for the price point they are sold at.
#17
Thanks for the comments Slamdunkin.

Although I prefer the look of the Claud Butler bike the Carerra does seem to get good reviews and to be a better quality bike at a good price. I've got one reserved at Halfords so I'll go and take a look at it tomorrow and decide then. :)

If you think that this bike is **** then you obviously don't know much about them.

I got one of the Subway 2's earlier in the year and they are definitely good bikes. Customer service is absolute pants though.

18" frames are for a 5ft 6" person roughly right? Damn, why no good deals for the 6ft+ people :(

Heat given for the shorties though.
#22
Early days but I've bought one of these. Delighted with the bike. I've read the stereotypical 'Halfords' criticisms. This bike is a very nice runner and I did not find any complaints to level at the staff or the value for money. Disc brakes seem to be a good idea and require little servicing. A reliable, sturdy hybrid.

I'm 5' 10" and have read conflicting things about whether I'd be best to go for an 18" or a 20" frame. I'm going to try the 18" instore tomorrow so hopefully it'll be ok.
#24
I prefer going for the biggest frame I can get away with as I hate leaning forward too much to reach the handlebars. I prefer the handlebars as high as possible (within reason). Go to a cycle shop and get some advice and check out a few different frame sizes.

I'm 6ft 2" and I find it depends on what your using your bike for. My road bike is a 20" frame, but I always prefer a 18" on my MTB as it's that much easier to chuck around and feels more responsive.
#26
^ I agree with that guy. Bigger frame on the road, but definately smaller off-road, it just feels better.

I'd like to give you a special award for spelling ' definitely ' correctly :)

Don't hybrids usually have 700c wheels? This looks more like a mountain bike that's been fitted with road tyres. Which isn't a bad thing, my MTB makes a perfectly good commuter with a pair of 1.75 slicks.

Voted Hot!

What type of mudguards would you people recommend for this bike? Prefer to get them from Halfords.

Also Helmet/lights etc.

I've got a bell slant....but the best helmet is the one that fits your head shape the best.

Totally agree and I'm the same height but as the Carrera is a commuting/road bike I didn't bother to explain myself fully.
#34
Id buy this now if it were a 20"
#35
Geat a 20" at Edinburgh, 2 mins later a call back, no stock
#36
Try calling Halfords Customer Service to see if any 20" left. They found one 60 miles away from me a few weeks back but I drove to pick it up given the spec was so good and it was £224 minus 15% plus £10 voucher at the time. Certainly not disappointed.

I'm 6ft and tried the 18" that I had reserved in a local store, but it felt too small. Even the sales guy said it looked too small, despite it meaning he wouldn't get a sale. This brings me onto Customer Service at Halfords .. speak as I find .. in two stores and on the Customer Services line, they were some of the most pleasant and knowledgable staff I've encounterd in a shop for some time.
#37
Gave them a call, only store that has one is the store that I called and its a stock error
