    carrera

    Does anyone know anything about Carrera full suspension mountainbikes? 21 speeds and 2003 model. I believe the model is DSTY 2620 but when i did a google search I came up with no such model. I need to know how it compares with say, an older Giant DS1. Is it reliable? Can you go over a pebble without doing damage to it? Does it hold up?

    No dude. Don't get one. I had a Carrera Mountain Bike. That are pieces of crap. They are the same thing as a Wal-Mart Bike.

    Yeah they make goggles. My friend has a pair. They are pretty nice and comfortable. But I didn't like the bike that I bought with thier name on it. It was crap!

    Yeah, I know they do make some good bikes, but I think they make good road bikes. I don't think they very good at making MTBs.
