I have the road bike from this brand. Good quality for entry level stuff. I want to get the mountain bike too one day.

i need this my bike is practically falling apart.:(

Good buy I suppose, even though Carrera is now Halfords. Useful as a road bike for town for instance better tyres than using either slicks or mountain bike tyres. But why on earth can't they supply disk brakes? "Powerful V brakes' huhh!

Did that code on the silver one last week. it's a nice bike. you can take it further down by getting a British cycling membership and prepaid vouchers of you manage to buy them with a discount code.

the disc break version is available for £80 more. (£72 more with the same discount code)

Carrera always has been a Halfords brand. The reason it has V brakes is that discs at the very cheapest end of the scale are heavier and less powerful. Same as suspension at this price, pointless. Good bike for the money. Heat given.

and the vbrakes are quite good, I'm a big bloke but almost flipped a somersault when used front brakes first time.

sorry for the multi post can't edit mobile...

heat added shame I have my GIANT still would have snapped this up

Well IMO, disk brakes are always better. Stop properly in the wet, are much easier to adjust when worn, just better. I suppose I agree about suspension for a town bike.

Worth seeing if this still works - hotukdeals.com/dea…626 - I used it to get our kit and bikes much cheaper.

absolute bargain and great commuter bike. try and do the 22% off deal mentioned previously.

Nice! May try and see one with a view to cycling to work next year when the weather is better instead of using my mountain bike#

A decent little bike or the price. Heat

Different kind of bike. One is a Hybrid (this) and the other is a road bike with thinner tyres and curved handle bars. Depends on what type of riding you are doing

......can use this to make a quick getaway from the christmas dinner table, once all the old arguments start up again.
Already fitted the bike rack in preparation. Just need to iron my long johns, find a clean pair of pants, and i'm all set

I like riding my bikes up the curb which model hmmm

This is an excellent, versatile, dependable bike. I'm pretty sure this one also has front and rear pannier rack mounts (making it an excellent budget touring bike).

These are decent bikes for the money. Just be careful buying a bike from halfords as sometimes they're not assembled properly and stuff like the gears will need adjusting/setting up.

If you want some more HUKD opinions, this went very hot before (albeit cheaper):

hotukdeals.com/dea…220

Have had this for a few months, not done loads of miles but seems decent for the money.

Main issues so far:
Some of the top gears need adjusting but need to book in for it's 6 week service so sure they will sort then
Having no suspension can make pot holes uncomfortable
Seat not comfiest in the world but does the jobs for short trips

Apart from those small issues, really enjoyed getting back on the bike!

Seems good for the money..

I have this exact bike, paid about this price for it. Excellent value for the money, I commute 16 miles a day down country lanes on it, and also chuck in some extra mile. Can comfortably cruise about 15mph and I'm pretty heavy and not the greatest cyclist but I do sometimes feel it could use a higher gear at some points.

The tyres are more mountain bike than racer, so not the fastest of things, that being said I've never had a puncture in all my commuting time, so pretty happy with that and that matters a little more to me than going slightly faster.

Also a slightly heavier and slower bike is better for the fitness, which was my ultimate goal anyway.

Whilst the bike is sometimes this price, its never really been much cheaper

Comes down to around this price every 3/4 months or so, cant fault the bike for the money, ignore the snobs who have money to burn but keep in mind it is true that you get what you pay for

Having bought bikes from large companies before and had problems I would recommend going to your local bike shop every time. firstly they won't sell you any old bike, they'll sell you one that they know you won't have problems with. Secondly they will build the bike for you, meaning you won't have the same problems you would have if you put it together yourself. My experience of buying from my local shop has been great so can't imagine me ever buying from Halfords etc even if I was going to save a few pounds.

You want disk brakes for under £200? You got that moon on a stick yet you wanted?

Good deal on a reasonable bike but what makes it a hybrid? It has 26" wheels; only the tyres differ from a mountain bike's and they still look a bit chunky for road use (width doesn't seem to be given).

Hot anyway at this price.

Edit: Tyres are 26 x 1.9: hardly for the street then.

Agree. Given the choice between V braked and cheap disks, I would go V every time.

The problem I have had with cheap disks, both cable and to a slightly lesser degree, hydraulic, is that they are single piston, meaning only one pad moves and the other is fixed in position and needs constant adjustment.

At this price point, V's are perfect.

It depends I suppose on how much braking you do, whether you have to adjust them. It seems to me that disk brakes wear less. The other advantage of disk brakes is ease of adjustment, usually just a single screw.
Whereas V brakes are much more complicated and can be quite easily knocked out of aligment.
And problems can develop if the wheel gets a slight buckle in it, which it is quite likely to occur

Could anyone tell me what the difference between this bike and the ones on the links below:

And which one you would buy out of the three if any?

I think only the color is different. which one to buy? It depends on your height. The one on red(Ops posted) is 18" while the link for the two you posted have 18" and 20". If you are too short then the bike will not fit you or too tall it be uncomfortable ride.
