With British road cyclists excelling recently, the signs are looking good for further national success in the summer's big race: the Tour de France. And with the first three stages taking place in the UK, there'll be plenty of interest in one of the summer's biggest sports events.
If you're one of the many people who have caught the cycling bug, you may be entertaining the idea of getting out on a bike yourself. If you are, one bike well worth considering is the Carrera TDF – a limited edition bike. It's available in three geometries: men, women and junior.
The super-light T6 aluminium frame is ideal for speed on the road but is durable enough to withstand many, many miles spent on the tarmac, offering comfort and maximum power transfer from the pedals to the road. A Shimano Tourney 14-speed drivetrain provides the ideal range of gears for covering urban riding, doing miles through the countryside and on the flats or conquering gruelling hill climbs.
Meanwhile, the Tektro dual-pivot calliper brakes will ensure you come to a halt easily and confidently, with integrated gear/shift levers ensuring quick and crisp gear shifting.
The junior model has been designed with a specific compact frame and adjustable reach brake levers to ensure the best possible setup for the next generation of British road cyclists.
