  • Carrera Vulcan Electric Mountain Bike is rated 4.8 out of 5 by 17.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very nice quality for the money I've owned several Carrera bikes and they've all been good and this electric bike is no exception. It's well put together and properly finished. I quite like the grey colour which is better in real life than the photos suggest. It's nice to ride with just the right amount of assistance from the motor to make inclines and hills much more manageable. I only picked the bike up on Saturday and have completed just 12 miles on it but I really felt like this is a bike I could ride without fatigue for a considerable distance. I'm a far from fit 61 years old so this bike has given me renewed enthusiasm and I expect to spend a lot more time in the saddle as a result. My first ride was mostly into a headwind but I was able to maintain a nice steady pace without having to strain. The power comes in smoothly and quietly with just a low humming noise from the hub motor.. It's really like someone gently pushing you along. Everything worked as it should with all adjustments being correct. I especially like the Clarkes hydraulic brakes. These are not top end brakes and you wouldn't expect them to be on a bike at this price point but nevertheless they are more than adequate. They are positive with no squeal and help to promote confidence in their stopping power. This last point is particularly important because this bike is very, very heavy. You don't notice the weight when riding the bike due to the gears and the assistance but if you have to lift the bike you soon realise how heavy it is. I found this out very quickly when it came to putting it the back of my car at the store. I managed it on my own but I suggest you need 2 people ideally. I haven't ridden any other e-bike so I can't make direct comparisons but I'm more than happy with it what I got for the money. Certainly not the highest specification but then it's certainly not the most expensive either. All in all, I reckon this is a good value money for money e-bike.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from great bike very good value for money, battery last about 25 miles in very hilly area circa 1000ft of climbing on average ride , 100kg rider , good fun on and off road ( surprisingly good off road) , takes the effort out of the hills, got a specialized stumpjumper comp mountain bike and this is probably more fun to take for the average ride bad points , had to change the bike after 4 days due to turning itself off mid ride and not coming back on. battery charger can get v hot , brakes tend to overheat on big descents

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Carrera Vulcan Electric Mountain Bike Had this bike for 2 months but keep cutting out in the first two weeks but I think I have found a solution finger crossed turn the battery on first then the lcd screen now done 200 miles and not had a problem done 40 miles on a full battery also 40 mph down hill. I have added a Suntour suspension seatpost sp12-ncx. I have had four ebike & this is the best one yet bought this on cycle back to work scheme saving me about £300

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great way to get fit I bought this bike to commute to and from work (approx. 6 miles each way), got fed up with traffic jams and figured I could do better things with the time I was normally sat in the car. I spent a long time deciding to part with the extra cash for this electric bike, but im so glad I did and wish I had sooner. Delivery was prompt after ordering and the staff at the Swindon centre from which I collected it were efficient, friendly and helpful making some final tweaks for me before I took it away. I encounter long steep hills on the way to and from work, so this bike is perfect as although unfit I can now get up them, the assist is amazing. The LCD display screen is really good and the controls and gears are easy to use. The battery is lasting on average 70k between charges (getting longer as im getting fitter) and I have had no problems. Im short so have the 16inch frame, and being a unisex frame im not stretching for the handlebars as I always have on other bikes. My route is a mix of gravel, tarmac and dirt tracks with bumpy tree roots which it handles with ease and it looks good to– I love it. Find myself wanting to ride it every where now not just to work … My mum has also now bought an electric bike and is happily commuting to work on it.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what the 'Doctor' ordered!! I bought this bike to aid my rehab after knee replacement surgery. What a great decision!! I'm not known for making good purchases (ask the wife!!) but I have to say this is the best thing I could have bought. 10 days after the operation I did a very brief ride around the village and guess what? No ill effects. Now 8 days later I am doing 16 km rides and loving every minute. The electric assist is just perfect for exercising my knee without putting undue strain on it. So much better than having an exercise bike in the spare room!! I've only added mudguards, don't want a shower to stop me.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Hello 'Bomber' I have owned my Vulcan for 3 months and I'm so pleased with 'him'. I'm a short, fat, unfit 52 year old woman, with a bad back, dodgy knee and wrist surgery, who wanted to enjoy cycling with my fit hubby.....and 'Bomber' has not disappointed me or let me down. Everyone who has had a go wants to keep my bike. We did add a gel saddle and more ergonomic grips for comfort. It is quite simply fun! We regularly cycle 20 miles across the New Forest on bridle ways, less well made tracks and even across shallow rivers (yes I fell in) no problem for Bomber which was a huge relief being 10 miles from home & dripping wet. The terrain does impact the distance you can travel on one charge. Being very very overweight I thought my distance would be halved at best....wrong! 39 miles on my first charge, up hills, on country tracks...not bad! If I spend more time off road on what hubby's Garmin calls a path...maybe if you're a goat....then you will see that 39 miles drop to nearer 30, still very very pleased as I'm not up to cycling that far in one go yet. My joy of living in the New Forest has been enhanced, seeing it from places I've never been is fabulous. My fitness has improved. Hills are now easily climbed in tour mode that used to need climb mode and what was a daunting 8 mile ride now seems like a warm up to a proper ride. I'm so glad we made this purchase, I thought I was overweight & over the hill but Bomber has put a smile on my face and I can keep up with much younger fitter friends. As one said "if we were playing golf we'd all have a handicap, Bomber just evens out the playing field"

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best bike I've ever owned I have had this bike for just two days so only done a couple of short trips around where I live in hilly Hampshire. Ten miles on mostly flat was a delight and hardly felt I'd been cycling. Today 16 miles on tarmac and track including one long uphill tarmac section and covered the lot easily in one hour and five minutes. I'm 67, 5'9" and 11.5 stone and I could still walk and talk afterwards! The bike is brilliantly balanced, incredibly stable and inherently safe in the right hands and the exhilaration when you accelerate from start and when you hit an incline makes it an absolute pleasure to ride. I just can't praise the bike enough.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Performs just right Bought this bike mainly for commuting to and from work, I tried a normal mountain bike but struggled up the hills, had to get off and walk up some of them, this bike has changed all that, ride all the way now and not to sweaty when i arrive at work, motor kicks in just at the right times. Find myself wanting to ride it every where now not just to work, if you are considering buying this bike, do it, you'll love it.
