Big fan of most Carrera bikes for value but this is freewheel equipped with heavy forks, it may be comfortable but is slow and inefficient and the cheap drivetrain plus lower end forks will mean the bike is higher maintenance. A triple chainset and a freewheel is something I would personally avoid knowing the more frequent adjustment this often needs. I spoke with one member of Halford's staff sometime ago and he was not a fan of this bike admittedly I lead the conversion to that point and he may just have been agreeing with me but did say the bike comes back more frequently than other Carrera bikes with issues. However it is very popular with the elderly he said. Maybe they are more fussy or tend to be heavier when they want a bike.
Had a Crossfire for nearly 2 years now and commute to work on it every day. Never had an issue and I'm pretty lazy as far as maintenance goes! To be fair I'd be happy with just 7 gears rather than 21 as I only ever use about 4 of them. Used to use my old full suspension Whyte JW-2 so going to a hardtail hybrid made cycling on the road seem so much easier and I've never tried a lighter model.
Don't forget that a heavier bike needs more effort to move and you will get fitter faster

Exactly why I’ve stuck with my old bike, plus I know it’ll never get chored while I’m at Tesco.

I do like the idea of a single front derailleur on some new ones now though.
While its undoubtedly lower spec, i really cant fault the Crossfire 1 i bought. Its also one of my most comfortable bikes.
I bought one back in the beginning of 2013. I bought it because i just wanted a cheap hybrid to fit a cheap ekit to, as a bit of an experiment really as i didn't know much about ebikes or ekits back then. I also wanted front suss because i'd decided to fit a front hub motor and thought a suss fork would be kinder on the motor.
After riding it for a while to make sure if it was suitable, i fitted the ekit a few months later in the summer. Then rode the bike without any probs for 6 years. Only changing the saddle, tyres and occasional brake blocks.
The ekit had finally had its day and the batt no longer had much range, so the whole ekit got took off this summer and the bike returned to how it was, and is now just used as a pub bike.
This bike has took loads of use, often abused off road, with my 15 stone on it, yet keeps on trucking and seems pretty tough. 7 speed freewheel, Tourney, the rear axle and suss fork, all still work fine. No spokes have broken and wheels have stayed true.
You really cant knock it for a 200 quid bike. It aint no bso.

Have you seen any cheap, single chain ring bikes? Only 2 seen recently marine pine and vodoo Bizango both £500-600.

Currently using cheap £93 single speed muddy fox, with 700 x 25c tyres think want big fat tyres after bad experience of potholes

Decathlon have quite a few cheap bikes with single chainring. Especially in their B Twin hybrids.
