This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Same bike as they have for sale in Halfords, but this is the 2019 model.

I found the deal in this thread, so can't take all the credit, but noticed the additional 10% off code, so thought I'd post.

hotukdeals.com/dea…140

Someone mentioned in the comments of the link above that the shocks are better on the 2019 model.

Just been pointed out to me that this is a trade in discount, so please factor that in to the deal

Heat but I'd still buy from Halfords just in case quality control is poor and the issue can be resolved face to face.
halfords will price match this I’ve had them do it for the same bike at the same price. Although I don’t recommend the bike as the components and forks have been nothing but trouble.
At the risk of stating the obvious, do you not think that you should mention that the code assumes that you are trading in an old bike and isn't just a standard 10% off code?

Hmm, genuinely missed that. I thought the code was oddly named. I've just bought one so looks like I'll be down the dump looking for a donor. (or I might just forget as I really doubt they care)

This company is owned by Halfords.
is it me or is the website just a mess?
My son wants a bike for Xmas, is this the best bike you could get for the £250 range? I cannot go any higher and as its on Halfords for £250 I was going to get one.

Thanks

Can't really say. Worth reading the thread on the Halfords deal linked to in the description.

For an entry level hardtail mountain bike its great value and can't think of a better deal currently but there could be better deals soon on Black Friday. Does seem worth buying from cycle republic over halfords if you can get the later Vengeance with the slightly stronger XCM forks over the XCT forks. If he is not planning to take the bike off road then perhaps a lighter more efficient bike like the Subway would be better if discounted on black friday. That's a rigid mountain bike essentially and is a better road bikes as well as still good for a lot of off road use. It also eliminates any maintaining of a front shock. The Subway is often the better bike for most people as its more versatile and lower maintenance plus is setup for road use straight away. It's really down to how he is going to use the bike and what he actually wants.

Basically, yes... there's a chance of 'better' deals (bang for buck) on Black Friday, so I'm led to believe... I'm skeptical.

I wouldn't suggest any parent to send there kids riding on road. Like you said it's a road bike, kids belong on pavements where they will need suspension street after street.
I'm looking for 2 bikes aswell , that's why iv left that bike out of my bucket list.

I don't agree with your point about where children should ride especially older children large enough for these Carrera Vengeance bikes but even for hopping up and down pavement the Subway will be better, its much lighter at the front and easier to wheelie and hop over small obstacles. The suspension of the Vengeance is more about actual off road use taking a rapid succession of knocks as you go over rough ground especially downhill. The Subway's rigid suspension can't adapt to that as well. You could fit large profile off road tyres on the subway and adjust the pressures to the weight of the rider to get the maximum suspension effect but it still won't be quite as good as the Vengeance off road. Although fully rigid mountain bikes are still capable off road and in some ways better than suspension bikes it depends on what you are doing. Many prefer the extra control/rigidity, the lightness at the front and the lighter mountain bike in general. Many even simplify the bike as below with a single gear Personally I feel the Subway is the best bike for most people who just want a bike they can use in the most varied ways from commuting to off road with the minimum of maintenance meaning its much more likely ready to ride.

Bike has just turned up. It has Suntour XCM 30 forks.

Be great for our road then, as it’s full of potholes

Cycle Republic are owned by Halfords . Its just a new urban retail brand for them which is looking to put shops in the city centre rather than out of town retail parks.
