    Rated 4 out of 5 by from battery waterproof apart from a few gremlins in the led display a good bike the led is open to all weathers an in the rain cuts out so to counteract this problem i myself have the solution which works a treat so carrera if you can buy this idea of me recently we had snow after that floods my normal route to work was flooded an i didnt know any other so through the flood water i went up to my knees in freezing cold water battery submerged in water but on i went guess what ?? amazingly it didnt cut out an got me thru fairplay a good bike so far worth the money

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from poor quality componants low end introductory electric bike,got for short commute (19m) a day,off road for about a mile. cannot complain about electrical systems which I thought might be a problem but turned out to be the only reliable thing about this bike. Main problem is a really poor build quality. On my second replacement bike in less than a year because of too many component failures that cannot be fixed. Have to add Halfords mechanics are really poor cannot adjust gears or true a wheel,but are great at at blaming a ...lack of communication...when you pick your bike after a week and no repaires have been done. I bought this bike for £1000 but see it is now priced at £1250 . DO NOT BUY. Save a few more quid and a better quality bike.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from New lease of life I bought the electric version as I am 60 and haven’t ridden a bike since my teens. I have now used it for a week riding to work 4 miles away, I must say that it has given me a new lease of life, with a good range of assistance levels to choose from it is just enough to allow someone as unfit as myself to cycle to work, but still feel my leg muscles being worked. When the battery goes flat it is very noticeable, but after only one week I can already feel myself getting fitter. I have had no problems with it as yet

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Carrera Vulcan, has very Good Hydraulic Disc Brakes The Pedal assistance on Eco mode is 25% and not really noticeable, the Tour mode is 50% assistance and is Good! The Climb mode is 75% assistance and is very good to take you up hills! The Turbo mode is very Good but flattens the battery too quickly so I don't use it, I mainly use the Tour mode as it's adequate, and it works well up to 16MPH. The front suspension is good with the Lock out forks and 120mm.of travel.

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Broke after 1 ride Bike wasn't put together correctly by the bike staff so I had a nice walk home pushing a £1250 bike luckily I could get the train for 5 miles of the 13 mile journey And the next day I was offered a new bike and this one hasn't broken as of yet. Wasn't happy with being offered £30 voucher

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well Specified and at a Very Good Price I already had a non electric version of this bike, which I have been very impressed with, but I was finding that the hills around here were getting a bit to much for me (I am over 70 years old), so when I found that they did an electric version, I bought one. It arrived next day and was easy to put together. It seems to be well built and, as with the non electric version, the specification is very good. The only criticism I have are the pedals, which are not of very good quality, but they were easily replaced with bettor ones sourced locally. It rides very nicely indeed, with the torque sensitive electric power coming in progressively (its like riding with the wind behind you!) and making my local rides a joy again.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Took the leap to get an e-bike This bike has been a Godsend for me, really glad I bought it. I’ve commuted to work (17 miles) on a conventional bike for a few years but there are some horrendous hills on the route and I’m getting too old to be exerting my heart, lungs and (already dodgy) knees to such an extent. With the e-Vulcan I still get a decent enough amount of exercise but I’m not gasping for breath on the hills, and my knee pain is considerably better. A few things to note: When you first get the bike you need to fully discharge, and then fully charge, the battery TWICE to get the most from subsequent charges. After that you can charge whenever you like. This is what the guy in Halfords told me so that’s what I did. I’m getting slightly more than the claimed 40 miles from a full battery, but I’m only using the two lowest settings, and I use it without any assistance at all for about a quarter of the route. If you’re going to use the higher assistance settings fairly frequently you’re therefore probably going to get a bit less than 40 miles from a full battery. I haven’t encountered any of the problems with the battery cutting out as reported in some of the other reviews. To deter theft the battery and display can be removed from the bike when you park it. The display is nice and bright. There are different modes such as “battery % remaining”, “trip miles” etc. I’ve found switching between the modes and assistance settings to be very easy, even while wearing thick winter gloves. I've noticed the "battery %" feature is quite erratic. On one ride it jumped from 22% to 10% within about half a mile. Another time it stayed on 6% for around two miles before finally dropping! It's probably best to use it as a rough guide only. The bike is quite heavy. I also have a conventional Carrera Subway, which is easy to lift. This one is noticeably heavier. It also feels very sturdy, which isn’t a bad thing. The manual isn’t very good. The one I got was just for a general Carrera (non-electric) bike so didn’t cover any of the electrical aspects. I spent a good ten minutes trying to remove the battery before giving up and calling into Halfords to find out how to do it. It turns out to be embarrassingly easy but I think it should be covered in the manual. I got this through a cycle2work scheme. All the staff at Halfords were beyond helpful throughout; answering all of my stupid questions and putting up with my mechanical ineptitude. That’s all I have to report I think. If you want to get back into biking or are thinking about using a bike to commute to work I can recommend this bike. It’s definitely working for me.
