A bit of a bargain for a 27 speed mountain bike. Halfords do drop the prices on their Carrera range of bikes from time to time, and this is the 2016 model (2017 models priced around £450). Not many reviews available, bike radar website has one from 2014 (sorry, link wouldn't paste).

I have the 2012-13 Kraken.
A lot of bike for the price...
I initially had problems with the brake levers on that model/year -a common problem...
Halfords upgraded the full braking (levers, calipers, discs) free of charge to some Shimanos (slx I think) costing just over £250...
Maybe good deal but never sure. halfords.com seem to have so many deals on carrera and boardman bikes nearly every month. And quite often they are 1/2 price. there is a lot better out there for the pricing.

To be honest I don't like carrera because it's halfords basically,and what I got on mine was **** and so was the mrs bike. Both rode ok for being mediocre about a month in and then all sorts went wrong. That's when I realised there not all that.

That's unfortunate, as I've had the exact opposite experience from my bike, a 2008 Carrera Kraken, 30,000 + miles since I got it, pedals changed when I bought it, chain and tyres replaced a few times, forks upgraded after 5 years, original bottom bracket replaced this year. It's been a great bike to have, which is one of the reasons I posted this deal.
What Carrera bikes did you have?
I have the Kraken 2012 - been a great bike.
