Yes, I'd been looking at this too but not sure what is good and what's not!

Having used the bike I can say all of the components are good quality. The only exception for me is the Shimano brake leavers which are plastic and feel cheap. I have a set of Shimano R550's which I plan to use instead.

Would this be better than the Halfords Carrera Crossfire? Sorry for being so bike ignorant!

Carrera bikes are halfords own brand, they are okay bikes but are not on a par with Dawes or other quality branded bikes.
