More from The Cycling Bug


Bought a Carrera Crossfire 2 earlier this year when halfords had a trade in event on. I've not had a bike for years so was looking for a good one to get me back into cycling. Love this bike, excellent riding position for me, I've put road tyres on to add a little more speed, and can't wait to get out on it. No problem with hills or flats, just a good all rounder.
