  • Nice bike i have the older one. I just swapped the forks after a year to Rockshox Toras after finding the fork a bit bouncy at Lee quarry. And changed the tyres to Maxxis highrollers. Bike handles spot on now.

    Ill keep that in mind so is it easy to swap and change parts

  • Will keep you occupied for a few hours. Only takes 3 mins to get from top to the bottom of the red run. And then a slog back up. But its nice for a couple of runs. I usually just come over from Belmont, down past Pigeon tower and ride along to Yarrow Res onto heapey lane to the nab and then back.

    certainly can, for so called beginner bikes you really cant go wrong with carrera's, and you get decent oversize bars on it, better than the skinny censored that was on my hardrock when i first got it, thats for sure, nice one mate, hope your enjoying it :D
