Awful bike. And I'm one who has only got a £300 carrera. 7 speed isn't good. wheels are far too thin. most people go for 25 now. frame isn't great. flexes a lot. no sti shifters.

Its the tyres not the wheels and cant see where it says the size? even if its 23mm that is only 2mm difference.

for the money (if you can find it) its a good deal.

I'm afraid it's not a good deal however you look at it. They are dreadful bikes that used for more than a mile a day will just fall apart. My 12mile a day commute destroyed a Carrera in less than a few weeks. They just aren't built to work!!

I use this for my daily 18 mile commute 5 days a week for the past 4 months. and no problems thus far. yes 7 speed cassette is limiting but its not too heavy and not too much flex from the frame. would recommend at this price and pay additional £20 for haldords 1 year service.

You are claiming this bike won't last 200 miles even tho it has an aluminium frame and brand name components ? Was your 12 mile commute over landmines ?
