Are we sure its a halfords/Carrera and not a Italian built Carrera?
Not originally from Britain I always knew of Carrera but it was only when coming here that I see the name used by Halfords. They dont seem to be of the same quality and dont really know much about the history of halfords but have never thought of them being associated with Carrera Italy. Maybe some here can enlighten me.
Carrera are still building bikes just outside of Brescia and everything is/was built in house and of a high quality.
High end quality frames with many pro's including Pantani, Roche etc having ridden for them.
I have been trying for a long time to save for a new frame and have narrowed it down to a new custom Tommasini or Carrera Lima. Lugged steel
I see Geoff of Matuzmaster in hungary has a nice frameset for sale as well.
Post some pics.
Carlsberg dont build Singlespeeds but if they did.......they would probably look just like mine.
I've spent half my life on bikes.........the other half I wasted
