good price.
Wouldnt bother ... Pile of junk better off getting from a descent bike shop ....
Get what you pay for ,rubbish forks ,etc
I think that's as good a spec as you'll get for a hardtail 29er at that price, and Carrera bikes are OK- they often get good magazine reviews.

Suntour XCM forks often have a lockout, but it's a pity the XCM-DS variant on this bike doesn't.

Awesome
decent for the price. the only sad thing here is that it's a halfords bike. still, hot for me.
Its £269. not bad really. my daughter has a full suspension carrera. very light. she loves it. gears are good. Disc brakes work well too.

It's a colloquial term...

He's just got a dodgey ascent!
On a serious note, it's probably similar spec to my specialized hardrock sport disc which is perfectly capable for the odd leisure ride, tootling around the candles etc... Hot from me!

​haha well spotted!
Looks to be about the right price for a budget hardtail with cheap suspension?

It's not that Halfords bike are bad - it's just they are priced at double the correct price as 'rrp' generally.


The fork is a piece of **** but at least Suntour have a good upgrade program if this gets you into the sport.
Do people still buy halfords bikes?
Never had a problem with Halfords but have had problems with "descent" bike shops.
Got a Vulcan 2014, great bike to go out with my daughter on even if the seat is a little hard. Lockout forks too which is nice.
Not bad for the price, miles better than a catalogue bike for sure but with bikes you always get what you pay for (like most things)

I was the same, I stopped shopping at Halfords, went to a descent bike shop and it was all downhill from there
Just Baught this push bike tbh I think it's one of the best carrera out for the price but the forks are the only let down
Probably THE worst bike scam ever produced...
1: Rusts easily..
2: Hard to clean properly
3: Easy to break.
It's just not for the people who are looking for something to be overly violent with whilst riding.. It's just too fragile.. and it's horrible... It's basically for people who know nothing about bikes and prices and whether they match.. If you want a bike that beats this for just a little more.. I'd suggest the VOODOO Bantu!
