Carrera Vulcan
#1
Great entry level bike and only that, forks are a big let down though but they still cope
if you are already into the sport you may want to get something a bit more sustainable Tongue

ive only got it due to fact i was being a cheap b*stard when i bought i ;D

From what i hear its a great entry level bike.  No point spending a grand on a bike if you don't even know whether you'll be riding it in 6 months time!

Just thought id say that having owned the bike for a little while now that I am really enjoying the bike but more importantly I am loving Mountain Biking!

The only negative I can think of is that I should of took the leap into Mountain Biking much sooner, instead of putting it off and finding other things to spend money on but nevermind I am enjoying it now  and that is all that matters

Agreed ;D  I didn't take it up till i was 28 (32 this year :o :'() and not withstanding the amount of weight i lost through it, buying the Kraken was the best decision i ever made. I now don't go more than 5 minuets without thinking if bikes and biking, it's my exercise, hobby and social life, and the reason i am skint, but who cares, i fooking love it Smile
