Good bike for jumping kerbs
Anybody know if a 700c wheel would fit this?
Good bike for the price, but definitely factor in the cost of replacing the seat, as it’s kind of like sitting on a house brick!

This is basically a mountain bike. I honestly don't know why they insist on calling it a hybrid bike when it's not. It does have slightly larger wheels than the average mountain bike but I'm afraid they're smaller than 700c wheels.

Don't mountain bikes have front suspension as a minimum?

It does make it look odd but are we saying that if you replace the front forks from most mountain bikes with rigid forks they then become hybrid bikes? I don't know of any other place that sells bikes set up like this and refers to them as hybrid bikes.

The difference between a flat bar road bike and a hybrid bike is mainly down to the tyre size. And bike weight, though in most cases a hybrid is of more use than a mountain bike, this time being lighter.
This is a rigid mountain bike, its the same Carrera mountain bike frame just with steel rigid forks. Ultra versatile bike that you can take off road and its an efficient commuting bike that takes massive abuse. Really brilliant bike and all most people need. Seems a very rare bike nowadays with not many rigid mountain bikes available nowadays. I know you get very cheap rigid mountain bikes but those bikes normally have weak freewheel based drivetrains which couldn't take abuse off road.

Also ideal for heavier riders to get back into cycling. Probably good for riders up to about 160kg if they don't go off road or drop off payments and up to 120-135kg for those who want to take it off road. Also ideal for touring.

Saracen used to do the Pylon and Giant used to do the adult Arx bike both rigid mountain bikes of good quality and you still get some high end rigid mountain bikes often made of high quality steel but its a small part of the market.

Very low maintenance bike.

Personally I wish Halfords would do it as 1x bike without the front derailleur and multiple chainrings and a very wide range cassette I think this would suit the bike very well. The Carrera Subway e-bike is configured as a 1x.

As well as available pre-configured as an e-bike also an ideal bike to convert to an e-bike especially if you want a front hub motor as the steel forks are easily up to the task even those cheap 1000W hub motors.

700c is 29" or 29er as the kids say

Probably would with lower profile tyres typical road tyres but the frame is meant for 27.5" wheels. Saying that there does look like generous clearance for 29"/700c wheels with even mountain bike tyres. Remember though the bike has a strong reinforced mountain bike frame and stronger 27.5" wheels its not your typical hybrid bike its a mountain bike with rigid forks, it's a heavier more solid bike. Most hybrids would be lighter than this unless its a hybrid with front shocks which could be heavier.

For me the greatness of this bike is keeping it stock and taking it off road.

Yes I had a Saracen Traverse in 1993 which was a rigid mountain bike,it was a very nippy bike and sometimes I wish I had a bike like that now without the hassle of hydraulic disc breaks
Hi all

Does anyone know how the 10 percent promo code works for best offer transactions?

If I make an offer & it’s accepted
can I still use the 10 percent code at check out when I’m paying ?

Buying a washing machine and seller accepted an offer that 35 less than his listed price but the listing is also “PRISTINE “ so another 10 percent !
Just not sure if I can still get this 10 percent after seller accepts my offer ?
In checkout can I put the code once he accepts my offer ?
