why is this cold ????


because vengeance is a dish best served cold
right here to make it cheaper.
british cycling discount 10% =£234
giftcard from net or work. you buy a gift card at a discount. a £100 gift card costs you £90. =£214.
then you have got quidco 7% of origanal price = £19. total price for the bike is =£195.

Because its not really a deal. Its the usual Halfrauds manipulation of prices "Higher price has been charged in 50 of 464 stores". There is no way this bike would realistically be £449, the shocks are entry standard and the disc brakes are cable pull not hydraulic!!. Use the search on this site and you will see that its been frequently reduced to this level and below.

Its a decent bike, but its a £250 bike, there is no bargain here, sorry (_;)

Paul's Cycles is normally the one with great deals.
Average. Probably what it is worth. Maybe a bit more.

I have a 2012 Fury. It won WMB sub £1000 category that year. So i bought it. If this carrera is of similar build quality it would be stonking.
I got a Voodoo Bantu from Halfords two months ago for £199 and is much higher spec than this

Good idea most of the way, but how do you get 7% quidco if you are not paying by a credit card / online (i.e. paying with vouchers)?

​where can I buy gift card???
Carrera are damn good bikes for little money. I preferred my old Vulcan over the Cube I got recently (which got nicked), think I will invest in another Carrera once all the bills are paid next month. Or maybe a Voodoo as I like to try something new from time to time.
Specs-wise, I think that's about as good as you'll get for £259- even better if you can use the discounts listed in previous comments. Not available for home delivery though, so you'll need to make your way to a store.

The nearest bike I've found is this GT Aggressor Expert 27.5 from Wiggle, at £258.99.
I got the older version of this bike in a deal last summer and its been a great investment so far as its got me back into cycling after not using one in a long time and so far not had any problems with it. Now thinking of maybe adding a road bike too looks like a decent price for the new edition.
Interesting!.. Would this suffice for the amateur cyclist looking to get out and about with his Son every weekend, and also to take up the Whitehaven - Tynemouth C2C

@welche2 mentioned discount card £10 off £100? Could you not possibly purchase 2 x £100 for £180?

so is that site part of Halfords themselves? Would I get a better deal via the Cycle to work scheme

Vouchers can be bought here: … Vouchers can be bought here: http://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/22-off-any-purchase-halfords-1603626 All you do is copy and paste one of these codes: MCOUNTHal09, ELGHAL13, NRTSCHAL13 - to apply the discount when checking out. Enjoy.I saved so much by doing this method when purchasing my bike recently. You order them and they get posted to you. Site does look kind of dodgy though but ignore that haha.

AFAIK, you should get a much better deal from the C2W scheme

I've not done the route, but from what I can see (disused railway and gentle hills), this would handle it fine.

But our scheme states you need to use bike 50% for work, which I wouldnt do

​yes you can buy as many gift cards to cover the amont as its 10% off every £100 gift card. my work has the benifit of buying the gift cards at this price.
​A bit long winded but here is the guide how to get 22% off any purchase at Halfords.

First get yourself £15.95 Toyota Owners Club Premium membership here (*credit to jamesm182*):
toyotaownersclub.com/for…ip/
It gives 15% discount for in store Halfords purchases (NOTE - only 10% for bikes).

Or alternatively get yourself a British Cycling £20 RACE Bronze membership. Membership gives you 10% in-store discount including Boardman bike range. Ask your friends who might already have it. Use code CYCLESCH to bring the cost down to £14.18 (thanks to Shakey Mic).
Thanks to chrisp11 who pointed that code CS13 provides £4.67 off though Cycle Scheme if you choose to pay by direct debit. You can also get Ride licence for £24 instead of £32 by requesting code here - cyclescheme.co.uk/bri…ing

Calculate the cost of your purchase after the discount and buy Halfords gift vouchers with 10% discount here:
select.halfordsbusinessservices.co.uk/

Many large employers and shopping clubs do have dedicated discount code for the site. You can register with The Big Saving Club, Ideal Extras club, JML (both gives 8% discount though) thebigsavingsclub.com/Mot…tml
ideal-extras.com/Mot…ers
jmlvip.com/Mot…rds
If you have policy with MoreThan, you get discount through they More4me site:
more4me.morethan.com/sea…rds
Lotus, Escort Cabriolets club members and Morton Michel policy holders also get 10% discount:
seloc.org/mem…le/
escortcabrioletclub.co.uk/for…rs/
mortonmichel.com/Chi…rs/
tfw.org.uk/doc…pdf

Codes - MCOUNTHal09, ELGHAL13, NRTSCHAL13 - all give 10% off

You need to register with the Select site first in order to apply the code. For orders under £500 there is a £6.40 Royal Mail Special Delivery (Insured) postage and packaging fee or 1st Class Standard Delivery (Recorded) is £1.72. Delivery is FREE if your order is over £500, and will be sent via Royal Mail Special Delivery.

Now order your item via Quidco (3%) or TCB (3.03%) and use Reserve&Collect service.

Make the journey to the store once order is available to collect and get your goods

This method will work on anything including sale items.

ADVISE NOTE:
If your payment for gift voucher order is not accepted DO NOT try again. PHONE your bank - they did flag your transaction as fraudulent. Request them to remove the bar then wait at least 30 minutes to an hour before trying again
Seems a very long winded? Any more means of saving 10-15%. Appreciate you took the time Welche2 but if theres any quicker way to save just 10% I'll do it that. Dont really wanna purchase vouchers from that site, looks dodgy as ****! lol
PS: That bikes went up to 349 now!!
...and Halfords' next bike up in the range, the Carrera Vulcan, is now £349 too. Better to get that than the Carrera Vengeance at the same price.
