any info on how heavy they are

11kg from the info on the link

only small sizes left which seem kiddy size.

Small sizes only, but if that works for you (or your kids) then this bike is an insane bargain at this price. When it first came out at twice the price Road CC mag called it the best value bike it had ever tested. Carbon fork, alloy frame, rides beautifully and looks good too. My first road bike and it get me hooked! I even used mine as a tourer.
with rack and panniers.
Be aware the small sizes come with 650c wheels not the standard 700c - not a huge problem but it does mean options on replacement wheels, tyres, tubes are not so common (but Decathlon stock them) or cheap.

Cold. Old deal is still live.

For the price you might want to loose some weight yourself rather than expecting 8kg bike for 150 squid..

For £150 I think you may be asking a lot to get lighter

What height person would the 48 frame suit?

​lol i dont need to get lighter i am a healthy weight.. why do fat people assume everyone is fat

If you think 2kg difference on a road bike is particularly important, I'd hope you're probably doing the sort of cycling where you want to be as light as possible - so makes sense you need to lose some weight for that sort of thing.

Me, I often have an extra 5kg of panniers, lock etc on my Giany Defy road bike.
My hybrid at some points was probably more like 20kg total before I added any extra stuff (at at one point I had approximately 50kg of coke zero on the back!)

You bought a Carrera for around £150, that was only 9 kilos in weight !!
I'd like to know what model Carrera that was ?

I'm calling BS on a 9kg bike for that amount unless you bought it in 1963?

Its either BS or totally clueless about bike weights.

Oh do share please.
It might have been 9kg in a leaflet but more like 11 on the actual scales.

I have the 48 bike and the weight is 9.76kg if that's any help.It's a great bike and is great for getting me to and from work very fast too considering the smaller wheels.A utter bargain at this price

I bought the missus a 51cm Triban 3 (which is going back on Saturday to be swapped for a 48cm (Decathlon has amazing customer service!!!)). It weighs about 9.5kg from memory (I can double check later if anyone cares), but that's with different tyres (Rubino Pro) and saddle (Cosine).

If I was to swap the silly triple square taper chainset for a spare RS500/105 one I could probably get it to very close to 9kg. On another bike I swapped a square taper double FSA Tempo chainset to an Ultegra one and it saved circa 450g, I expect a triple to weigh more.

Also intrigued about the Carrera for £150 that weighs 9kg though.

Last time this bike was on HUKD decided to buy S/H. Got a steel Raleigh (better ride) which UPS weighed as 12 kg & it is great. Old style suicide brakes & gears, just changed the saddle to a wide comfy one. Prefer plastic pedals & wear steel toecap boots £10 to avoid getting holes in my nicer shoes. Have a look on EBay - paid £52 for the bike.

For not much more you can get a Carrera Subway One SH, thats what i just did ive found it to be a great bike to start with.

anyway 45cm and 48 sizes only left

Can anyone please recommend a bike for around the same budget as this one. Suitable for a beginner just looking for a decent bike for daily commute. My height is 5ft 8 inches. Thanks

45 and 48 = "more sizes"? I thought these are the only sizes that are usually in stock anyway, because they're so small?

The next best bet after this one is the other Btwin Triban 500 at £250.

These are seriously good bikes for the money. The Triban 3 is just ridiculous at £150. That said the Carrera Virtuoso at Halfords for £240 is also well worth a look.

Thanks. I've also come across the below. Is it worth the extra money compared to the virtuoso?

Yes definitely, for an extra £25-£30 it is a no brainer. Carbon forks, Claris front and rear mechs. Just over 1 kg lighter, definitely worth the bit extra.

What carrera bike did you get for £150

I guess he might have confused the Carrera with Cinelli bike.
I am sorry I did not plan to sound offensive, it's just sometimes it is worth training more rather than getting the lighter bike (except if you are really competing in a race)

I think you've taken offence a bit too quickly. You said a little too heavy at 10.8kg for a £150 bike, which is a bit ignorant of the fact most bikes at this price point are 12kg+. The Carrera Vanquish at £264 at the moment is 10.6kg. It is an old cyclist saying that it is a lot cheaper to lose weight yourself than lose it off the bike. I think that was the point.

Plus it's a pretty safe bet if you're looking at bikes in this price range you're new to cycling and so may be carrying a few extra lbs than those that take it a lot more seriously.

Most the weight on these bikes are in the chainset, wheelset, tyres and saddle so are a good base to upgrade things as they wear out.

P.s. here's a rough chart of cyclist weights, you may not class yourself as heavy but in the world of cycling:

I have looked at these before, but ended up with a 2012 Giant Defy 2, which I got last year for £170. No carbon, but decent nick, 2x10 gears etc (Original RRP £800). Very happy with it and certainly don't feel I need more/lighter, even with the panniers etc on.

Ha ha I am definitely closer to a sprinter than I am a climber!

That said my Bianchi Infinito does only weigh 7.5kg...(_;)

Blimey that's light! I was happy with my latest addition at 8.8kg (disc braked). I'm in the climber category apparently - well that's what I'll be telling myself when someone out sprints me from the traffic lights. oO
