Not a bad price for a decent road bike but for the original price of £449 I would have expected carbon forks and better rims rather than the no name ones on it. Still, you can get a lot worse for £299.

Carbon forks on a £449 bike?

Carbon forks on a £449 bike?


I was thinking the same thing.
6061 alloy frame is worth about £200 quid. (A frame respray costs £300).
This is a epic bargain. I'm an MTB man and very tempted.

heat indeed

was posted a month ago at this price,so must have loads of stock available !

Im after a good first road bike - i take it this is a good option?

not sure to go for a new or a second hand one for a similar price.

got this as a first road bike, love it.
it really flies.....

I suppose there's the benefit of a warranty if i buy new.

Not a bad price if it fits you and you can live with Halfords' record on build quality and servicing.

449.99 was optimistic for a Carrera of this spec, and no, you wouldn't realistically expect carbon forks at that price.
Even within Giant's range - some of the best value for money on the market - there's no carbon fork until the Defy 3.5 at £525.

As ever, ride one, compare it with a couple of others and buy the one that fits you the best.

Good price to be honest. I'm a Carrera fan, because they're good quality build bikes, and perfect for beginners-intermediates into cycling, and especially on a budget. You really get great value for money with Carrera. I own a Carrera Vulcan 08 Disc Spec MTB, which cost me around £275, and is a very solid MTB, and it's already been through quite a bit in terms of trails and is holding up very well. I wouldn't mind purchasing some R Shox forks for them but that'll come with time, the XSM forks are definitely good enough for now.

Might go for one of these on the Cycle 2 work scheme. I've not rode a bike very far for years and would hardly use it really, unless I end up finding 10 miles at 5am a joy! Is it worth paying the extra over a £150 ish bike?

To be honest JTX there are lots of people who would love to benefit from the C2W scheme and can't.

If you would "hardly use it really" then there are probably much better things you could spend your money on.

Can anyone tell me what day this price will end?

Thanks.

Nice little bike this, got it in May when they had a 10% off voucher too. If you fancy yourself as a cycling elitist who feels the need to get fully clobbered in cycle gear just to cycle to work you probably wouldn't be seen on a bike from Halfords.

To all the normal people who want a decent, nippy road bike that looks nice and is fairly lightweight for the money, this is a v. good option.

so tempted by this... need to get my stamina up and not driving would save me a load of money! 10 miles each way to work though...

Just go for it! 10 miles is not that far, I started commuting by bike nearly 3 months ago and I do 14 miles each way. It is tough at first but gets easier very quickly. I do it on a singlespeeed bike and I think it would be quite a bit easier on one of these carrera tdf bikes.

I am tempted to get one myself but I am looking at something more expensive on the cycle2work scheme.

Such ashame. I'm too short for a 57cm frame. I'm currently riding a 53cm Bianchi. It would be good to have a spare bike, especially for training. Even then, I won't be too heart broken if I manage to wreck it since it came dirt cheap.

p.s purchase this bike onlline via cashback sites such as topcashback.co.uk/hal…ds/ and you will recieve 6% cashback. That comes to about £18 cashback.

They have 54cm at the same price. But I would look at the Raleigh Airlite 100. Rutland Cycles have it on at £340. A a better bike (IMO) and you will easily get the £40 back if you come to sell it.

I hope you don't mind but I've posted your recommendation up as a deal. I'm considering between the 2 bikes and am unsure for which one. Would you please advise me the pro's and cons of each bike? I'm looking to do a 6-7mile commute across mainly main roads with decent tarmac and maybe one or two road humps. I'm new to cycling and like the idea of it so I'm hoping this will start me of somewhat.

Thanks in advance

For anyone who hasn't noticed, with the 15% off bikes at Halfords, this is now £254.99.
