I’m not sure what you mean. You should select the amount of vouchers you need and the 8% discount and £5 off will happen at checkout. After purchase the vouchers will be in your wallet on the my account section of the website that you print out and take with you to Halfords store. You pay for your collection purchase at the Halfords store.

This was a good deal with the extra 10% off the other day, but £1000 is probably a fair price rather than spectacular. At the £1250 RRP, there are better bikes available.

who said mountain bike? why are you only seeing what you want to see instead of reading whats written like to fabricate reality? I was just saying that a reasonably fit person can reach those kinds of speeds on a flat I did not say maintain that for any length of time no other information was provided you made assumptions most people that are into cycling know that those are the kinds of speeds the average person can achieve on a flat and instead of getting some data you just compare the world to yourself are you the baseline for humanity? on almost any bike with low rolling resistance tyres and a reasonable number of gears (including mountain bikes) most solo male riders can manage 20mph on a flat solo women usually a little bit slower, in a paceline you can add at least 5mph to that (all of this assumes no wind in any direction). If we were talking average speed over an extended distance including terrain then it would depend on many more factors like rider weight and maintainable power output for that rider and the amount of climbing and descending involved in the sample which makes it mostly pointless to speculate as there are too many factors. but on a flat the main factors involved are aerodynamic drag and rolling resistance so its much easier to speculate on for average riders.

Have you tried the allen keys on your bike? The ones that came with my recent bike purchase were absolute ***. Used the ones from my big toolset and could tighten everything another half turn or more (the seat was another three full rotations). Are the ones in that actually usable to adjust a bike that has been put together properly as that is the one 'key' element (sorry) in one of those sets in my opinion?

Very nice bike but this is better value if the 'APP20' discount code is still working on the app. https://www.sportsdirect.com/muddyfox-anarchy400-938453?colcode=93845322 Which makes it about £245. Without the app discount its debatable which is better. The Muddyfox bike has better components overall I think but Sportsdirect will not be able to provide any support or assemble and test it for you or offer a 6 week service.

bonzobanana

Any particular reason you think its bad? Frame and components seem very good for the money. I think I've seen it in Halfords stores and looks great, no obvious quality issues or problems. Very well reviewed on the Halfords site with just about every review strongly recommending it which isn't true of every bike reviewed on Halfords. Only 2 Trek Marlin 7's came up on ebay both local collection only plus secondhand with possible worn components and other issues. Those aren't options for most people who want a new mountain bike delivered or collected locally. The Trek Marlin 7 is still a chinese made frame with assembly possibly outside China to avoid EU tariffs. Maybe US stock is made and assembled in China but whatever its a chinese bike with at best minor design input by Trek for the frame geometry. Saying that it looks a very generic frame probably off the shelf or minor tweaks to length. Rock Shox XC30 is still rather basic front shocks. My point is its a doubling of price literally to achieve small benefits at best. Maybe £80-100 more could be justified but 2x the money definitely not.

I ended up going for the Carrera subway 2 hybrid.

Besford

If you're still working on your balance I don't think a drop bar 'road bike' is likely to be the best for you. What kind of usage do you have in mind? With your generous budget I'd include the Specialized range of hybrids in my shopping list but you can get a decent starter bike without spending that much (do also allow for a helmet, lights, lock, etc.). Why not start out with something like this Axle - if you look after it and want to trade up in a year or two it'll still be worth maybe £100.

Jimjim84

Is there much difference between Subways 1 & 2? The Subway 2 was reduced to £280 at the beginning of this month. Is it worth waiting for that to be reduced again?

bonzobanana

Manuals are always out of date. Often the standard manual is rarely updated because nothing has really changed with it. You get this on many sites where it says 2012 or whatever and there is no later version. With the bike you might get a sheet or two specific to the bike depending on what components it has. That is the manual currently on Halfords site. It does have 120kg mentioned in it for rider weight on its own, then luggage allowance on top and a total weight limit that must not be exceeded of 160kg. Again this is pretty standard or written slightly differently to some bikes which may have 136kg as the total load. Again though the Carrera frames are extremely high quality and well above the standard you would expect for the price. Have an excellent reputation for strength and long life and extra reinforcing can clearly be seen. The penalty may be slightly higher weight than some competitor's bikes that aim for lower weight and have more restrictive rider weight limits. For some a lower bike weight is more important as they may be quite light themselves for others the strength of halfords frames and taking their greater rider weight would be more important. Saying that sometimes a bike can have a weak frame and heavier components and negate the frame weight advantage so always look at the stated weights for each bike. While I don't know for sure there is a strong likelyhood that the frame comes out of the fuji-ta factory in China by far the biggest manufacturer of complete bikes and frames in the world. http://www.fuji-ta.com/mountain-bikes Many bikes destined for Europe though are assembled outside China to avoid EU tariffs, vietnam, bangledesh, cambodia etc but based around a very high quality EN certified frame from fuji-ta in China. The same facility makes Cannondale and a huge range of other bikes. The factory is state of the art and makes brilliant frames to be honest, they have destroyed much of the OEM business of Merida and Giant with equal or higher quality frames at more competitive prices. The frame is something that has to be correctly certified and is critical for legal reasons. Assembly can be farmed out to cheaper low tech facilities. This is pretty much the norm now. Dawes for example do the same with assembly in Vietnam I think for many of their bikes. Fuji-ta do a huge range of frames and can pretty much customise their existing frame designs to give companies like Halfords their own unique frame designs. They also do cheaper chinese spec frames designed for lighter riders and US/Euro spec frames which are stronger and more expensive and its pretty clear with a 160kg maximum load and the obvious reinforcing the Carrera frames are the stronger type especially as they have an exceptionally good reputation for frame quality. If there is a failing with halfords Carrera bikes its more likely poor assembly either at the assembly factory or by halfords shop staff but ultimately I personally would always double check anyway wherever I bought a bike from. If you look on the go outdoors or decathlon sites you will also see plenty of reviews where people have complained about poor assembly and walmart in the US are legendary when it comes to badly assembled bikes even having the forks the wrong way around. This isn't an issue limited to large retailers as you often see reviews of local bike shops on forums where service was very poor.

Gentle_Giant

I dont dispute what you say, however the manual you link to is a number of years out of date, and makers change specs to keep prices down while counting on "errors and omissions" small print to protect themselves; (although as I said, the internal spec list I found wasnt dated - I will have a search and see if I saved a copy). When I questioned Halfords staff in late November, no one could find a weight limit for the current Carrera, and their general internal FAQ system spat back 120Kg for adult bikes "unless otherwise stated"; however I cannot find a single Halfords own brand bike that gives a weight limit on any website. Looking on-line, other sources state the Carerra is "tested to 120Kg"; although it doesnt say 120Kg is the limit, or if this was for both version, or just for the Carrera 2 front suspension model. Just like cheap HiFi, the cheap Halfords brand bikes dont have a web resource giving all the nitty gritty details; whereas people like Dawes do. Page 39 onwards

I bought the Cuillin Sport when it was on offer for £169.99 which I found out about from hotukdeals. Great bike at the time for ridiculous low money. Still have it tucked away in the shed. I did have a Courier but I sold that many years ago. I think later Revolution bikes weren't as good sadly although I only got that impression from forum postings so could be wrong. https://web.archive.org/web/20061002180533/http://www.edinburgh-bicycle.co.uk/catalogue/detail.cfm?ID=22631

What was wrong with the electric bike, why did you sell it?

bonzobanana

Not actually that much lighter though no doubt because of the suspension forks and some riding efficiency will be lost due to the forks. Much lower weight limit too and low end suspension forks tend to be high maintenance. If you want a lighter more efficient bike I would of thought a Triban 500SE would be a better option as long as you are in the weight limits of the frame. Personally I like the Subway's, they are workhorses, strong and comfortable that you can ride pretty much anywhere. They all feature freehub drivetrains. http://www.btwin.com/notices/wp-content/uploads/2012/10/notice_velo_A5V_EN_PE12.pdf http://www.bikeradar.com/commuting/gear/category/bikes/hybrid/product/carrera-subway-2-review-51424/

Seems reasonable, though if you're regularly riding in the rain or at speed or are heavy you might want to replace the V brakes with discs. Not sure if that can be done on this frame. I went from some bottom of the range shimano V brakes to magura MT4 hydraulic disc brakes and the difference is immense, in braking and in price :P

Not long ago the Subway 1 was at £230 on offer and really its a much better bike.

I’d be very interested in getting one of these through our cycle to work scheme if not for the fact that Northern Ireland is currently without a sitting government and as such the legislation distinguishing ebikes and motorbikes hasn’t yet being passed (it has been in the rest of the uk). So while I could buy one, to legally use it I’d have to tax, mot and insure it plus wear a proper motorcycle helmet whilst riding it! If NI ever does decide to join you guys in the 21st century though I’ll have to remember to check these out.... :)

Review of bike along with examples of hill climbing:

rugman

The Freego Hawk at £1099 is pretty poor spec wise in comparison, cable disc at front, v-brake rear (crossfire-e hydraulic brakes front and rear), lower rated battery (10ah vs 11.6ah), very cheap top gun forks, and only one size frame available, compared to 3 sizes on the Crossfire-e

airbus330

When I was looking at ebikes to buy, I hired a 3k Stromer, tested a Cube from the local specialist and there was nothing these bikes did that the Crossfire didn't. If you look on the Pedalecs forum all the 'branded' bikes have their particular problems too. Ironically, the Freego Hawk is now on Halfords website for sale at 1099. I can't see any advantage over the Crossfire. As far as Halfords are concerned, my nearest shop was useless and had no product knowledge or interest in the product, one a little further away were great and knew their stuff. About the same experience as visiting the local cycling specialist. At this price point the Crossfire is a bargain, the Freego will probably be just as good, but more expensive.

Appreciate the feedback bonzobanana. I've opted for the Boardman, hoping it will be a better option.

bonzobanana

Just don't see the point of this bike. The 700c wheels should make the bike faster and more efficient although slightly weaker/less robust but that increase speed and efficiency is ruined by fitting basic front suspension forks. If you want greater comfort you'd be far better off with the Subway which will be a lot more reliable too over the long term. I suspect even off road the Subway's stronger wheels with larger profile tyres will still be far better than this bike with naff suspension and much weaker wheels. Sometimes retailers configure a bike that will be popular with people but really people shouldn't want this spec.

tawse57

The Boardman is a nice bike. For the £150 more it is much better bike. I considered buying one a few months back when it was, IIRC, £450 but my local Halford store only had a very knackered / scratched one on display and the staff did not seem that interested in selling. But if you have a good store nearby and, once you have checked one out for any sign of damage, if you can find a good one of these then it is worth it. The Boardman will probably last you several years longer so you need to do some calculations of how much that works out per week. Probably worth stretching to the £400. I don't recall seeing it as low as £400 before.

I think for me the saying you get what you pay for is very true. Personally I would pay a bit more for better components. Imho

Mechanical disks will offer more reliable braking too, I'm heavy and commute in the rain sometimes, on those days I really feel the limits of v-brakes. When you squeeze both brakes hard on a downhill slope on a rainy day and find yourself slowing down as much as say applying the rear brakes on a dry day on the flat, that's a damned scary experience.

I was in yesretdya and they were happy to order the 22inch vengence freom headqurters.0

Thanks for taking the time to post I really appreciate your feedback. We are not going to be doing any hardcore downhill cycling, I think I will go for the vengeance his and hers for my partner and I.

Halford told me all out of stock in uk for bikes in this price range

Mechanical brakes are fine for general use. This is not a hardcore downhill bike. If it were you'd need to look at hydraulic brakes. But those will add a lot to the cost. I find mechanical discs a lot easier maintenance wise. I would prefer them to rim brakes, especially in the wet. As far as weight goes, any of the bikes around this price level will be around 15kg. Which in my opinion is fine. It seems to me that there are a lot of people on this site who will rubbish any cheap bike deal - why I am not sure - Possibly to self-justify their expensive purchase?

I was lucky, purchased this from them last week, was £16.99. it's huge, only problem was the back of the box was missing and it was taped up with sellotape. All brand new though
