“I have had a Carrera banshee for just less than one...”

Written on: 20/01/2011 by hondawillmore (1 review written)

I have had a Carrera banshee for just less than one month now, been on it 3 times. The bike is great but they is a few things I would advise on first, it needs a chain protector as the chain knocks the hell out the frame, next is the one i'm complaining with at halfords as I want a new bike, please let me know what you think;
I was riding my bike as you do third time out on it not a long trip I hit a bump and the rocker that the shocks attatches to piviots, well when they gave me my… Read Full Review

I watched them pdi my bike and set my shock up to my weaight befor leaving the store;they told me to ride it for a week then bring it back for the cables and other bits retensioning due to the bedding in period.
Defo hit them with the sale of goods act as bike NFFP as not set up for you on PDI.My own bug bare is there was no manual given to me with the sale of the bike so had to trawl the net to get to know how to adjust the suspension!

Written on: 27/07/2010

Where do I start with this bike, first i bought the Carrera banshee. As an avid mountain biker looking to get back into the sport after a two year absence i was assured it was a nice ride and capable. On the first ride i buckled the back wheel which was not made of metal more like jelly, I was merely performing a small stoppie but it squished way out of line, along with the headset playing a lot with the raidon forks which were pants.

Anyhow, halfords said if i pay the difference they would… Read Full Review

Takes Light free ride well and absorbs 3 -6 ft drops ok I have recemtly taken it for a 22 mile ride and with some extra pressure in the shocks it road well.

If you are in to mountain biking seriously but dont want to pay a heafty price the Carrera Banshee could be a good choice, however I would recommend that you put locktite on the crank bolts as they can somethimes come undone easily
If you are into mountain biking and are looking for something that you can throw down a hill at speed and not have to worry about it, may I suggest looking at something a little more expensive… Read Full Review

Written on: 30/11/2008

I took it up Snowdon and down the rangers path which gives you both extremes of MTBing. It handled the conditions better than the xc bikes that came with me. Use your gears on those climbs and relax into it on the down hills. Bikes a lot of fun until you can afford to spend £1500 on your next one… Read Full Review
