If I could sell it then yeah that's a great purchase. My point is what value is there? Rolex retains value that's why they are so much. There is no possible function or material that could warrant the £1800 price. Even if it was made of 24 carat gold all around it wouldn't be £1800 on its weight, I cannot understand why someone would buy this. To each their own!

danieldtaylor

That way of thinking could be applied to any spend. Why spend more on a particular car, when you can get a cheaper one ....blah, blah. The point of this is that this is a watch that generally retails at around £2400, and can now be purchased for £1800, therefore saving £600. That in my eyes is a deal, regardless of whether I like the look of the watch or not. Surely the value is down to what the buyer deems to be ‘valuable’? But in money terms, you could buy this for £1800, and potentially sell it for more (unused) given the RRP? Anyhow. No drama if it’s not for you. There will be a G Shock deal along shortly I’m sure. ;)

Same strap on the Monaco I bought. It’s very high quality and looks great

shane_stocks

There is no value at all in a £1800 watch, let's not go there. I was asking because otherwise I haven't a clue why anyone would buy it, there is nothing outstanding about it. Probably cost £100 to create.

justconfidence

How about because you like the look of it? Or because you like nicely made things? Not every purchase needs to entirely rational - sometimes you can be attracted to things on an emotive level. Also, it's cool you may not see the point in spending £1800 on a watch, and that's fine, but other people judge value in different ways. For some people, £1800 for a watch seems absurd - for others, a purchase like this is chump change.

bonzobanana

Doesn't have to be a xile pretty much any off road bike strengthened for jumps should be ok. There are quite a few Saracen models that go for reasonable money but many other brands too. Just look for the strengthening of the frame in the areas mentioned. There is a lot to be said for buying new though. Aluminium frames start off really strong and always get weaker so a typical aluminium frame will handle higher weights when new but fatigue will reduce strength over time. It may be as an overweight rider you may only get 2 or 3 years out of a frame where as a normal weight rider may get 10-15 years etc. There are a lot of variables to consider. A good bike search tool here; http://findthatbike.co.uk A quick look on ebay shows this Instinct with reinforced frame. https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/SARACEN-INSTINCT-2-16-SPEED-MOUNTAIN-JUMP-BIKE-HARDLY-USED/362340986151 Why a dirt jump bike needs to be strong.

mbnaeem

How long does it take to fold/unfold

forsh07

I have one of these. I am 100kg. I have done 1000 miles in the past year and had no problems except be aware they are not quick release wheels so either upgrade or get puncture proof/self healing tyres else it can be a pain to sort at the roadside.

dealhunter30

I think if you order online to collect in store they let you try it and you can return if you don’t like it.. a halfords guy told that to me few weeks ago.. can’t remember clearly but would be worth checking with their customer service

Muig1972

As far as I know, Halfords don't let you take a bike for a test ride. Perhaps it's at the discretion of the manager. Good local bike shops definitely allow test rides. In the past I've been able to try out several different sizes and models before buying - it works in the shop's favour as it usually means they get a purchase from me.

Is this good for a beginner? Thinking wether to buy 2nd hand or brand new need to get fit

Bobbite

Thanks a lot for that! Just recently got back into cycling and just looking for something lighter and with more gears than my current mountain bike, and know barely anything about bikes. The B'twin was indeed last year's version but the Carrera is brand new (if it's a real ad as I haven't heard anything back). I'll probably go for the Carrera then, thanks for the input! Much appreciated.

Fatal.Swan

Not a great deal in it quality-wise to be honest. It depends which year the bikes you're looking at are since the specs change slightly (as you found with the V-brakes vs disc brakes). The current model Carrera has more traditional style of gearing (3x7 = 21 gears) where you shift with both hands, the BTwin has the currently popular style where you just shift with the right hand (1x9 = 9 gears). The BTwin has a suspension fork and the Carrera has a rigid fork, so the BTwin may feel more comfortable to ride, though there are drawbacks to suspension forks at this price point too (reliability, effectiveness, extra weight). This year's model of the BTwin has disc brakes but last year's doesn't, personally I don't think there's much benefit over V-brakes at this kind of level, more important to have whichever brakes set up correctly. The BTwin has narrower tyres so will probably feel a bit faster on the roads and less at home on tracks, vice versa for the Carrera.

Bobbite

Thanks for the answer! I just checked the ad and oddly, he shows the link for the riverside 500 on Decathlon that says disc brakes, but the pictures on his ad don't have disc brake.

This over virtuoso? If yes virtuoso only comes in sizes for men. What is next best upgrade for ladies size?

csmith

Whether this bike is right for you is personal preference, but as to the brand, I bought a Carrera MTB nearly 23 years ago, excellent quality, I've never had any problems with it and it's still going strong. If I needed a road bike I'd certainly consider this.

kramer2088

Interesting question. I'd guess woman tend to have a longer leg to body ratio so a bike might be higher but shorter...or then again there might just be some pink somewhere.

Biker25

You should go for the virtuoso at £40 pounds more as it is lighter.

bonzobanana

Btwin seem to have nothing similar at this price point except the awful Triban 100 which is also a tourney drivetrain with freewheel. For 260 the Virtuoso with its Claris drivetrain is a huge upgrade on the Triban 100. If you can find one of the old Triban 500SE's instore for 250 that is a different story.

Thanks. I brought the 54 last week and collected on Friday. Amazing bike considering the price. The claris groupset is really good and for my use as a commuter I believe more money spent would be a waste. I even did a longer ride during the weekend to a friends house and quite enjoyed it.

You just got a great bargain- you don't need to spoil it by spending a load more money on an unnecessary upgrade! Enjoy the bike as it is, and upgrade stuff when it wears out is my advice.

Thanks for the response. I am only a casual cyclist and may not need this upgrade. But interested in knowing what parts I will need and if there is any DIY video you can recommend. If I feel confident, I will give it a try :).

bonzobanana

You've got getting a great price completely sussed. Fantastic deal. I'd have to change the rear wheel to a freehub 27.5" wheel with 7 speed cassette as I hate freewheels but that really is the only thing you have to do to make it a really good bike and most will be happy with freewheels anyway as long as they aren't heavy or very frequent all-weather riders.

VBV

Thanks very much for posting the deal. I collected the bike today and its great. I ended up paying £122 in total for the bike. I used zeek gift cards for 8% + £7 off. I also used 10% off hsbc advantage voucher posted on another thread.

Mech65

Thats interesting. I have used both like yourself but found that unless i paid a considerable amount disc brakes where no better than a good set of centre pulls. I agree hydraulic has the edge over mechanical disc overall but once again you get what you pay for.

bonzobanana

Nice bike but not sure it represents the same value as their lower end bikes. It looks like the standard Carrera mountain bike frame which is a brilliant strong frame but I'm sort of thinking maybe I'd rather go with a cheaper Carrera utilising the same frame and upgrade at my leisure but then I'm not really a Sram fan preferring Shimano and I think I'd rather have a different front shock too if spending this money. Reviews seem great though and many more expensive bikes out there with the same components. It has to be said these Carrera frames are absolutely bombproof but Voodoo and Boardman exist as a more performance orientated option over Carrera maybe with double or triple butting they may not even be as strong as the Carrera frames but I think the end result is for someone who wants to be competitive offroad and wants a slightly lighter bike they might be better options. Also at this price point there is more competition from go outdoors, decathlon and last year's clearance bikes from many bike dealers. You have many more options if you have £500 in your pocket to spend.

Scottc123

But for £480, you could sell the old forks for maybe £80-100 and get an airfork for £150-200. I recently got some RockShox 30 Gold for £199. That'd probably take a chunk of the weight off as well.

goemon

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 ***.
