Can't think of anything better for £300, I nearly bought it a couple of weeks ago at £380 but couldn't resist at this price.

This 10% code was working yesterday but The Boardman mountain bike I wanted is OOS everywhere. So I was gutted.. May not work with the 20% discount

what boardman? i know the 2010 models are like hens teeth now.

The 2010 Pro Hardtail Mountain Bike.. Its down to £849 now and the 10% code took off a nice chunk of dough... I was gutted as I've been waiting for it to be a decent price.

Cracking offer - additional 20% off all Carrera adult bikes!

It's a good bike - hydraulic disc brakes, decent front fork with lockout and SRAM gears.

Check out the Fury too, award winning budget bike - £599 RRP now £439 with discounts. (halfords.com/web…iew?storeId=10001&langId=-1&productId=518245&TB_iframe=true&TB_C_ID=productdetails&TB_C_TITLE=Carrera+Fury+Mountain+Bike+09+20%22&width=800)

Just bought the Fury, after wondering whether to buy it or not, the one at my local store went, so I decided to get in quick before they all went........

Fury got an excellent review on bikeradar..

only stores to have those are in Ireland, i have one at my store we got from an irish store but the frame was pretty scratched. ive had countless people after that particular model. Ask your local store to check the N.I. stores, they can easily DHL it over

Just collected mine, amazing spec for the money.

This site sucks....a overpriced tub of ice cream reaches over 1000 heat every time it's posted and this great deal doesn't even reach 100 hot....Buy this bike you will not be disappointed. Had mine for 18 months and have rode it all over the peak district and have tried to break it without success.

Thanks OP, just got a Kraken with an extra 15% off on top of the current 20% off, with my brother in laws staff discount. Comes in at £257ish, bargain.

Will they ask to see an NUS card in store if you use the NUS code to buy online with reserve and collect.

I've just had another spin on mine, the sram components are imo are far better than the equivalent shimano, I'm really impressed with this bike knocks spots off my old Giant Yukon.

The x5's are equivalent to shimano deore

Think the deal would have got more heat if you did the 20% off all bikes

Regarding the NUS code it works but kicks the 20% code out so not worth doing.

how much better is the kraken versus the V Spec vulcan at £207 after discount?

Much Better forks, wheels, gears, Brakes, tyres, chain-set, ect ect

cheers

"Kraken" price.

This is great price - would love one but the 22" frame is no longer in stock anywhere.

Was told the Kraken is now discontinued so cannot order a 22" version - to the shop assistants credit he was did not want to sell me the 20" version that they had in stock as he said it was too small for me.
If you are hesitating - don't, I doubt you'll get a better spec bike for this price.

I'm 6'2" and have made the mistake before of getting a too large frame the 20" was spot on for me, whereas the 22" would be hiiting the 'crown jewels' in case of a quick exit off the saddle.....

I'm about 6'2" and have quite long legs - I wasn't sure about the best frame size - the 20" frame did seem a little too small for me and the assistant seemed to agree - needed to jack the seat post up quite high.
I was hoping he was say that the 20" inch frame was ok just so I could get one but if someone selling you something doesn't think its suitable you've got to take note.

I'm 6.2 and the 20 fits me fine...I did have to move the seat right back on it's rails though which has made the front end lighter, which I like as it help me to lift the front wheel when I need to.

thanks OP and all those who commented on this thread and previous ones. I picked up the Kraken with the 20% off instore. Offer ends today I think

Offer is now expired, but should have been hotter. I picked up the Fury instead of a Kraken, both outstanding spec at their original price points, but a bargain with an extra 20% off.

Yeah I never really understood HUKD which is why I don't post much any more, seems like what Slamdunkin said is true, 'you post a tub of ice cream at a sensible rather than crazy price and it gets 1000%' but post what seems a genuinely great deal and no ones interested.......

I am in love with the Fury but my budget is £500, absolute maximum. At present halfords shows the price of fury as £579.99. Any codes for the 20% discount? The NUS code only gets 10% off.
