I dont get on with twist grips gears & have been looking for a cheapish bike with Trigger shifters. This seems ideal & a good price. If any one knows different or better for same price or less Id be glad to hear it. Thanks

Pretty decent bike for this price.....

Depends if your looking specifically for a mountain bike rather than a hybrid etc but the spec of this makes it very good value imho

He certainly wouldn't have to worry about anyone nicking it,,,,,,,,

I bought the disc spec version yesterday(comes out at £266 after discount)

I've only done 10 miles or so on it but am impressed so far.

I have also found this , LAND ROVER - EXPERIENCE TRAIL 2010 Mountain Bike for under £200 with various retailers. Should be good if its Land Rover?

Been down to Halfords today & the Carrera looks & feels good so I will be buying it. The front & rear wheel have quick release so I will simply put in the back of the 4x4 but does any one know if there is some kind of bike rack that fits inside the car to keep the frame upright?

Carrera get a hard time with their main/only outlet being Halfords and their underhand tactic of over pricing the bikes for 30 days so they can then advertise nationally that they are giving a huge discount.

It's a poor tactic but regardless of that Carrera do make good quality, value for money frames. Too many people when looking at a bike rate it based purely on the components, the frame is equally as important.

It's a good buy mate if not astounding.

Point to note though, give the bike a going over when you get it and make sure all the nuts/bolts are tight. The monkeys at Halfords have been known to miss a few during the build.......
