The previous version of this bike has been up here on HUKD before but ran out of stock pretty quickly.Now they have released a 'newer' model for the same great sale price.

Bought it over the weekend and love it... and yes it is a very low spec bike but it's great for those who don't want to fork out all their hard earn £££s and just want to go for a casual cycle around the park on the weekend.

does the job nice find.

Hey. What you on about low spec? To be quite honest from my point of view this spec is quite decent. Nothing fancy but still very functional and not too costly if anything goes wrong. Claris is decent as a group set for most people new to cycling and indeed for me. Admittedly the shifts can be a bit abrupt considering it is only an 8 speed cassette but not that big of a deal.
Not too sure about Carrera anymore. They used to be really good value but nowadays I would say that this price is about what you would pay for it. Not too big of a deal but still an appropriate bike for the price. Don't know about the frame or what it feels like or geometry or the cantilevers but probably would be okay if you swapped out the stock pads for some grippier ones.

considering the carrera TDF eventually dropped to this price which has the previous model (2300) gearing system this is a really good price

I posted the previous model/version, although I haven't tried with the price/spec seems spot on. It should make for a robust, versatile and adaptable bike. Better than a hybrid, will go off road and hold its own on road.

Claris is functional, certainly up for the job. The chainset and wheels look like where the costs have been cut.

Cantilevers can be good, not great, quite a task to get them fine tuned, not easy like Calipers/Vs/discs.

This review of the older Crixus version convinced me to go for this. Swapped tyres to Marathon Plus upped spec on brakes and chainrings (stuff from the leftover box) flipped stem (personal choice) superb commuter / light tourer, have bikes costing 5 times but this is fantastic value for money and I paid £269 two months ago.

Crixus Review

Been looking for a first bike, which I can commute with, it's 12 miles each way, and with a cross, I figure, I can take the scenic route.
This looks a steal, but I am in bloody Denmark
Anyone have any links to someone who can assist with shipping? At all?

This is a sensible first time bike, have done 1200 miles since may last year, ime just now changing cassette and chain, changed the tyres to continental gaterskins, could do with a different set of pads apart from this a cracking first time bike
