“The brakes on the Carrera Subway 8 are excellent. I...”

Bad Points
Unreliable gears. Theres always at least one gear that won't sit right which is very annoying. Hand grip on right hand side continually working its way off.

General Comments
The brakes on the Carrera Subway 8 are excellent. I like the fact you can change gear when stationary. The tyres, no punctures in 3 years!

The 3 year bike plan was a waste of time. You'd be very lucky to find a halfords staff member with enough knowledge of the hub to fix/adjust it to your satisfaction. Most seem to be part time youngster with an interest in bikes and very little training. Having said that, the hub was the only issue ive had. I got the bike for its low maintainence in the sale for £220, probably not worth the full price of £400. I personally find the bike too slow but if you can deal with that then its perfect for commuting.
