Here's the Carrera Parva hybrid Bike blue colour £160 with TRADE20 code
sashforth

Clearly meant to be for trade in only. Wording from Ts&Cs is TRADE IN YOUR OLD BIKE FOR A NEW BIKETrade in your old bike and get up to £400 off a new bike! All you need to do is shop, choose your brand new bike, then apply your discount code at the checkout, have your new bike delivered to home or collect your new bike from your local Cycle Republic store. Finally just drop your old bike off at your own convenience! The wording is clear that you are meant to drop off your old bike at your convenience but what is less clear is what happens if you suddenly find it inconvenient to drop off you old bike. Seems a bit like the John Lewis trade-ins which rely on the customer to take in their old item but don't enforce.

Even though the Subway is almost 2kg heavier, 14.9kg v 13kg?

bonzobanana

Actually the Subway 1 is £240 at the Cycle republic and only £220 using this tradein discount which is close to its best price. The only thing is it will have to be posted and you do your own setup unless you have a Cycle Republic nearby. Great price though. Definitely worth the £60 upgrade over the Parva as you get disc brakes, freehub drivetrain and a few other minor upgrades.

I'm still waiting on the subway 1 to go down in price... anyone know the lowest it has been before? And at what time of the year?

bonzobanana

Doesn't look like you are under any real concrete obligation to supply a old bike. No mention of punishment if no bike is traded in. Perhaps someone knows more information. There has been quite a few Parva threads recently and as before it's worth pointing out this is a budget compromised version of the Subway with an entry level freewheel based drivetrain. The same type of drivetrain you get on sub £100 bikes. Still a nice bike at a good price but certainly not worth the claimed £300 normal price.

Personally I would just want to change the rear wheel for a freehub rear wheel and fit a 7 speed cassette and spacer. That would strengthen the bike and give better shifting (removing freewheel wobble). I would definitely want to keep the forks one of its best features in my opinion but if you wanted to convert the bike to a hardtail it is capable of it. It appears to be a decent Carrera mountain bike frame.

pvfc247

No, not at all as this has no suspension. The bigger the tires the better to soak up some of the small bump's ;)

Well that is the other end of the spectrum a very fast lightweight road bike, a great bike but it does have low weight limits and has no hybrid functionality purely on the road. The carbon forks will improve comfort a bit but it's definitely not a comfort bike like the Crossfire. You'll massacre your mate in speed if you have this and he has the Crossfire unless he is lighter and fitter than you or you have to take the long route via road and he can take rougher ground. I personally don't like carbon forks, they are brittle and can fail dramatically and would always avoid them but I think that is an issue I have, I'm a heavy rider anyway and just not suitable for me. Just bear in mind if the bike topples over or you have a minor accident you really should have the forks checked and possibly scanned for cracks etc. They need careful monitoring for possible damage. A certain percentage of carbon forks will fail too due to voids and manufacturing issues. I personally prefer more robust steel or aluminium forks.

cheers, would this https://www.decathlon.co.uk/triban-520-flat-bar-road-bike-sora-id_8322799.html be any better? It gets rave reviews. Sorry to hijack the thread.

bonzobanana

Crossfire is a decent enough bike but do you really need front suspension? It makes the bike less efficient and less reliable. I would recommend the Subway as a better bike in my opinion but I would take the time to go into Halfords and see which bike you prefer. The crossfire is configured as a comfort hybrid bike for those older cyclists with bad backs or other minor health issues you are sacrificing a lot of cycling speed and efficiency to get a softer ride quality but most people don't need that very soft ride quality. If you get a Subway not only will it be a better bike on the road but its stronger mountain bike frame and wheels will mean its more capable off road as well. You will also not have to spend as much time maintaining a subway bike.

How do you personally define excel on the road? If it is purely commuting speed and lightness then I take your point but that definition isn't the same as many others. I might consider excelling on the road as coping with potholes, stronger brakes, more upright riding position and tyres that don't need constant pumping up before every journey. I agree the marketing term is incorrect and a hybrid's strength is surely its versatility and the fact it doesn't excel at either but one person's perfect road bike might be a Brompton, another's maybe a super lightweight carbon road bike and another a simple steel workhorse of a bike that doesn't get the attention of thieves. I've seen forum posting's where someone was recommended a typical road bike as a commuting bike by a bike shop and then realised when he got it he hated it for commuting and had to convert it to flat handlebars as drop bars were inappropriate for the start/stop cycling in heavy traffic where he needed upright visibility and constant braking. It was an expensive mistake as changing the brake levers and shifters was not cheap. Apart from the crappy freewheel based drivetrain this Parva seems a pretty good commuting bike. Decent trigger shifters too none of that twist/revo shifter rubbish which can be dangerous.

I've noticed older bikes are sometimes better than the newer models that replace them. The pound dropping in value and Chinese wages increasing means it gets harder to import the same quality bike for the same money and many bikes see small downgrades year by year or alternatively have price increases. Personally I look at the spec to see the differences. The weight of 19kg is likely boxed weight I doubt there will be much weight difference between the bikes of one year compared to the following year unless there is some huge difference in the specification. One of the most common downgrades to keep prices static is to replace aluminium handlebars and seatposts with steel versions so often bikes at the bottom end of pricing get heavier. However downgrades where they have replaced double wall rims with single wall and freehub/cassettes with freewheels does actually drop the weight of the bike.

BucketMan

Is their ebay shop totally broken? Every time I order a bike, after the payment process it bugs out, and says there is no stock or something along those lines. The only success I have had is with the Pendleton (£20) which they later reneged on. There are similarly negative reviews left on some of the ebay pages for non-existent items. A total waste of time.

Actually the one listed here is the 2015 model. Still a brilliant price though.

Halfords Carrera sulcata £250
bonzobanana

So many suspension bikes go to recycling though once the suspension has failed. Often to replace that suspension it is very expensive and most make the decision to get another bike rather than put a large amount of money into their old bike. Such suspension can be surprisingly short life at times too. Hybrid isn't designed for mountain biking just light trails only. Typically when you have 700c wheels and front suspension that is seen more as a comfort bike. The suspension is there for the elderly or people with back issues or people who just want higher comfort and do not care about riding efficiency or speed. It's extremely rare that such bikes are fitted with off-road suspension they normally get short travel, light duty suspension with very little adjustment designed for comfort bikes but it depends on the price point of course. Such suspension is often just lengthened versions of front suspension used on children's mountain bikes 20"-24" wheeled bikes sometimes, tube thickness, diameter etc and so couldn't be seriously taken off road for a heavier adult rider. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hybrid_bicycle

umar88

That's just how you like it. Doesn't mean whole world likes it that way. They given you choice. If you do road cycling you go road bike. You do mountain biking you go mountain biking. Do bit of both go hybrid. And if you have nitche taste build one of your own (y)

bonzobanana

Hybrid is only for light trails but then why fit suspension to it which you don't need for light trails and you certainly don't need for the road? The wheel size of 700c is the best thing for potholes not suspension, the larger wheels will cope better with such holes. This assumes the potholes are normal size potholes and nothing extreme in size.

umar88

Well it's personal preference really. I like to have front suspension for road use because where I live there lots of pot holes. I thought hybrid was only really for light trails and not serious mountain biking.

bonzobanana

Some of these hybrids are terrible concepts though. You get suspension on some which really you only need if going off road but you get weak 700c wheels not suitable for serious off-road use. So you have all the weight of the suspension and lack of efficiency with front suspension on the road and a bike that still cannot be used seriously off-road for this reason I've always felt the Crossfire was a bad option for most people. The Subway for example is far stronger can be taken anywhere including seriously off road even drops and yet is a far more efficient road bike than the Crossfire. It does everything better than the Crossfire and is far lower maintenance too. If your worried about lack of suspension the thicker mountain bike tyres of the Subway can be inflated to match your body weight and give some suspension effect without compromising road cycling efficiency.

Bike accessories and components might be a rip off but they are normally great for bikes. Going from a independent local bike shop to halfords and seeing what you can get for your money in quality bikes is a revelation. Sometimes its better to order online and collect and pay instore. You can get cashback from topcashback etc and can buy discounted gift vouchers from zeek etc for payment instore. You can create some extra discount. On zeek gift cards are currently 6% discounted for halfords. Also you can get cashback when you order your zeek gift cards etc.

Surprised this is cold unless the bike is rubbish. 140 halford reviews says its good. Even better when buying from store vs online retailer as the 2 year warranty means you can take straight back to store and get them to resolve it rather than dealing with online call centres

Biker.Jeff

If you buy it and need to know anything about it after its been delivered, drop me a pm. I've had the bike almost a year now, so i'm familiar with every aspect of it. It also comes with lights, that run off the main battery and have a light sensor, so they'll turn on automatically in low light. They're only incandescent bulb lights and not led, but its a still a nice touch.

penfoldstuart

Giant are having a sale and although their bikes are a lot more than the halfords ones the quality appears to be right up there, if you have a cycle to work scheme and your employer let's you top up then a £2000 bike becomes 1750 and if like me you can shift on old bike on ebay then then price comes Down a bit more.

That looks right up my street and well under my budget. Thank you very much for the info and for taking the time to reply.

Biker.Jeff

For mainly road, the Raleigh Pioneer E is a good deal atm...... I have one myself and i've been pretty impressed with it since i bought it last year. Its also been totally reliable with no motor cut outs like the Crossfire E. It'll easily do 40 miles with its 400wh batt if you use one down from full power setting. Rigid fork is much better than cheap suss. It only really loses out against the Crossfire by not having hydraulic disc brakes and uses rim brakes, but they're more than adequate. https://www.jejamescycles.com/raleigh-pioneer-electric-cross-bar.html?gclid=CjwKCAjws8vaBRBFEiwAQfhs-AFpH6Vad1tygTxcQ0K3GhizfSNCH13OyWi0nxuIdDppPH9mjIXxOBoCZusQAvD_BwE

Thanks for the detailed reply, I have gone for the Parva since I'll basically just use it daily to cycle 10 mins to and from my nearest train station, with the occasional ride-around the local park. I think it'll be more than suitable for my needs. Although if I had read your comment a couple of days ago while the sale was on I'd have been seriously tempted to upgrade :D

bonzobanana

The freehub of the subways is much stronger than a freewheel. The freewheel is an entry level component at the bottom end of Shimano's components and is typically found on sub £100 bikes. Freewheel based bikes tend to need more maintenance have less precise gear shifting (due to freewheel wobble) The rear axle is unsupported on the drive side so can bend quite easily for heavy riders or those that go off road a bit more or do drops off pavements. The freewheel drivetrain is quite light though, with a small weak ratchet mechanism in the freewheel and a low end plastic tourney derailleur. The Subway 2 should still be lighter though but not by much as I believe it has more aluminium components including the forks which should compensate for the heavier drivetrain and brakes but there may not be much in it. Looking at the halfords site it does look like the Subway is heavier and may be geniunely heavier but then its a much stronger bike that you can abuse and take off road without issue. It should require less maintenance. The Subways are only one step away from being decent hardtail mountain bikes you just need to replace the rigid forks with suspension forks and for a lot of off road use you don't even need suspension anyway. The Parva is basically a budget, light duty version of the subway. Disc brakes are replaced with v brakes, drivetrain is downgraded to entry level, some parts are replaced with heavier steel version like handlebars, forks etc. I actually have a preference for steel forks over aluminium so don't see that as a downgrade myself but the rest of it is a downgrade.

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. ;)

diddly08

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
