Lightweight frame

Whether you’re cycling to work or enjoying light trails and leisure rides at the weekend, the Carrera Crossfire 2 Hybrid Bike is a fantastic all-rounder that will suit any type of rider. A lightweight 17 inch, 19 inch, or 21 inch aluminium frame helps to keep the entire weight of the Carrera Crossfire 2 to just 15kg, plus there’s a sloping top tube and flat handlebar setup for a comfortable upright riding position.


Smooth cycling

With the help of a 24 speed Shimano gear set, both climbing hills and building up speed on the flat is made easy. Every gear change will feel smooth thanks to Shimano Tourney mechs and shifters, and a Shimano HG200 cassette and Suntour chainset ensure you’ll be transferring energy from the pedals to the rear wheel efficiently.


Ride in comfort

The Carrera Crossfire 2 is also comfortable to ride on varying surfaces thanks to the Suntour NVX front suspension forks. With 75mm of travel, they do a great job of absorbing the rocks, tree roots and sudden elevation changes that you’ll encounter when riding off road.


Great stopping power

Get reliable and consistent braking every time thanks to the powerful Tektro mechanical disc brakes, perfect for controlling your bike on descents or stopping quickly on busy roads or cycle lanes.

Extra grip

The Carrera Crossfire 2 features 700c Kenda tyres for extra grip on a wide range of surfaces, as well as extra absorption of shocks and bumps. The tyres sit on large diameter 32 spoke double wall rims too, adding extra durability.


Additional accessories

Kitting out your Carrera Crossfire 2 for any kind of ride is easy. On wet days, help to keep some of the tyre spray away from your clothes and bike with a Halfords Mud Guard set, or on hot days, stay hydrated with the help of an additional water bottle cage and bottle.


Free bike build

If you’ve never built a bike before, then it can be tricky getting everything in the right place, plus the bike itself will need to be safe to ride. If you don’t feel confident enough or don’t really have the right space or tools, then we’ll be happy to put your bike together for you at no extra charge. One of our bike experts will build your bike at your local Halfords store making sure it’s safe and even getting rid of the packaging for you.

This work for online purchases thinking of getting the discount card for £17 a year than it will save me £21 on this, not a huge saving but one purchase pays for itself so even if I don't use it again still gain £4

I'm 6' 3" and 16st. Had this bike (21" frame) for a year now with no issues at all - I've done around 3,000 miles. Strongly recommend getting a set of puncture resistant tyres (I use Continental Tour Ride / Ride Tour) and you will find that the disc brake blocks won't last more than 6 months. Same applies to brake/gear cables so buy some spares. I have yet to replace any spokes (replaced numerous of previous hybrid bikes)
I think the Subway is a better bike at £240.

It's much stronger and lighter and is basically a mountain bike with rigid forks. The Crossfire suspension forks probably weigh 2.5kg and in my opinion you don't need them. The Subway will be lower maintenance and more versatile and safer. As for speed that is more debatable they are very similar but the Subway is lighter so will be easier to get up to speed and easier up hills. Not forgetting the Subway is really a rigid mountain bike so you can choose much more varied routes to travel which can speed up your journeys.. Maybe in four to five years when the suspension fork seals have perished you will be faced with replacing those forks or scrapping the bike where as the Subway will have no such issues.

Really the only issue with the Crossfire is the suspension, wherever you go you are always hauling that extra 2kg of weight effectively over rigid forks, every hill etc. The Subway in contrast has thick profile tyres both front and rear which can give a good suspension effect if correctly inflated for the weight of the rider and that delivers a smoother ride for both your hands and your bottom. Lastly the front forks of the Subway will never need servicing, re-greasing etc and you can leave them out in the rain without issue.

Agreed. I don't see the need for cheap front suspension forks on a hybrid anyway.
You can get it cheaper buying through topcashback: 3.6% and paying with topcashback gift cards: another 5%

But the 2kg extra weight will keep you fitter

I agree on getting the Subway, however if you have already bought this bike you wouldn't have to replace the fork or scrap the bike if the fork seals went, you would just get new seals, if the fork did fail just replace the fork or fit a rigid fork if they were beyond repair. It's not all doom and gloom if you buy this model.
If your only going to be doing a commute and some recreational cycling I wouldn't bother with a hybrid, they're generally pretty heavy because of the mountain bike parts. Go for a road bike, they're very quick and normally a few kilos lighter.

According to the spec, theres only 1kg of a difference between the 2.
Is this or the 'subway' bike mentioned in the comments suitable for a 5'4 person?

The ford owners club also do 10% off bikes.
Would be better if had a double chain set on the front. I like to think it's not a beginners bike at least.
AA membership gives 10% voucher off .
Quidco gives 12% - i wish i could get one
Just remember that road bikes and thin tyres are no good with leaves. My commute takes in a cycle path currently festooned with leaf mulch. Even the 2 inch tyres on my bike slosh around slightly.
Edited by: "NeelixWasANiceMan" 28th Dec 2019
Size wise, I have tried this bike in the shop. The large is too large for me and I am 5-ft 11 and take 32-inch trouser legs. I was happier with the medium. I haven't got one yet but I am considering.
I am looking at spending slightly more £325 for the Carrea Virtuoso road bike 🤙

Must admit I've been noticing an excessive amount of soggy leaf mulch covering (mainly side) roads and paths around me. Never seen this amount before and lived here 20 years. Did wonder what it must be like to cycle on it after it froze and I slipped on my *** on it.

Seals are hard to get for entry level Suntour models. The stanchions maybe 25.6mm or 28mm. I totally accept that rigid forks is another option I've suggested it myself on occasion but its all extra money down the line and visually it may be mismatched. No it definitely isn't all gloom and doom its a good bike for the money it's just a shame they have fitted suspension forks to it which doesn't really deliver any real benefit in my opinion.

That's a great bike, there is even someone who has cycled one all around Asia for many thousands of miles. However it does go cheaper quite often.

The current best road bike option on a budget appears to be this one.

argos.co.uk/pro…992


If you are a heavy rider the Virtuoso is the better option though, it has steel forks that will take rougher use but the Challenge bike is an amazing deal for the spec.

Between the Subway and Crossfire yes but I meant the difference between suspension forks and rigid forks, these suspension forks are around 2.5kg and rigid forks might be around 600g so that is the 2kg difference. The Crossfire is a lighter duty bike than the Subway so has a much lighter frame so with rigid forks would be about 1kg less than the Subway.

When comparing the 2 models saying 'the Crossfire suspension forks probably weigh 2.5kg',and referring to 'hauling 2kg extra', it comes across that you mean one is 2kg heavier than the other.

Thank you for your positive response, I'm going to pick it up soon very excited can't remember the last time I've owned a bike from new I've been struggling with a third hand road bike which has caused me so many issues 😣 so I'll appreciate the upgrade.

I'm getting the bike on Cycle to Work scheme saving £104 and I am also a British Cycling Member (got a membership for free for being a HSBC customer, thank you again HotUkDeals!) So I'm going to see if I can also apply my 10% discount onto this so saving approx £32🔥

My weekly payment works out to £2.83 a week after tax so will be replacing my drive to work commute for at least 3 of the 5 days a week and then used for leisure and charity rides also.

I was looking at getting the Subway model or even a MTB but considering where I live (mostly flats/tarmac/Blackpool) I've opted for a road bike

It's amazing how much money commuting by bike to work can save you even if you only do it some of the time. It will also likely start lowering your weight and improving your health and strength. Doesn't do much for your arms though.
