    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great bike Good bike, reasonably priced, bit fiddly to put together with No tools, i.e spanner, Allen key, handle bars could have been in a fixed position, wee things like that would help a novice build a bike up

    Rated 1 out of 5 by from unbelivable! i brought this bike about 5-6 weeks ago at a price of £450.00 and was brought to commute to and from work which is 3 miles away from home down muddy tracks, the reasoning behind buying such an expensive bike was because of the terrain I cover to and from work and now after using it several times I had buckled the back wheel so badly that Halfords (Evesham) was asking for £50.00 for a new wheel! bearing in mind I have 2 other (cheaper) Carrera's (vengeance) (Vulcan) and these go down the same track every day aswel and these have not had a single problem! not worth £450 when I am now considering buying some heavy duty wheels around £200 which when paying such an expensive price for the bike and it cant even cover a little 3 mile track and back! annoyed is an understatement! very disappointed in this product!

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good value bike for urban riding and light off road This bike is great value for money. It has good suspension forks for its price - the steerer size is 1.1/8. The bike has hydraulic brakes with are a huge pro. It is a durable bike and is fantastic for urban environments, good for everyday use and getting around. Wouldn't use it for actual mountain biking though.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from This is a great bike After having an accident at work and was in a wheel chair for a few years, i thought i would try and get some exercise and rebuild my leg muscles by cycling. I brought the carrera kracken expecting to do a few miles around town etc, but i loved it so much i ended up doing 30-40 miles a night on it. The carrera kracken is so smooth to ride, all the gears changed smooth and it was a pleasure to ride. I could not fault the bike and i would defiently recommend this. The only trouble i had was when my bike went in for the 6 week service at halfords. The front gears was not adjusted correctly and jammed as i was riding along next to a bus and fell off, nearly getting run over. I took it back to a different halfords store (rayleigh) who sorted it with no problems. So my point is that the bike is a brilliant bike but i would recommend a proper bike shop look over it before hand, espically when they had my bike ready for collection and had the front suspension forks around the wrong way.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic MTB offering great value. I bought this Carrera Kraken from Halfords Penzance as a step up from my previous Carrera Vengence, and I am not disappointed. Great 120mm lockable front suspension with Shimano Hydraulic disc breaks and Shimano Acerea rear mech and shifters. With the 27.5" rims and Continental X-King 27.5 x 2.2 teyres, this bike really looks the business. Only time will tell, on how the bike performs and lasts, but or now I am really stoaked and as I purchased during the Summer offer campaign, I purchased the bike at great value. Excellent work from the Halfords Penzance team, setting the bike up no making ready as promised.
