  • Carrera Crosscity Electric Bike is rated 4.5 out of 5 by 60.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great bike ! If you are like me and read reviews as part of your research before buying a product then here goes. I read every review I could find on this great bike and watched you tube videos before I decided to buy it and I am not disappointed! The bike itself is very well made and it is solid. I read a few reviews that this bike it heavy and difficult to lift when folded. I did not find this to be the case and is lighter than my hybrid bike ! In terms of its performance, it is again excellent. I find that is very quick, on par with my hybrid. It has 8 gears which is great for various situations. When I am on a flat road, I would switch off the electric assist and pedal and I do not struggle with it. I feel it is just as quick as a normal bike and it is easy to pedal using the gears appropriately. When I get to a slight incline, I switch on the power and adjust it and the gears according to the steepness and then it goes like a dream. The gear change is also very smooth and they work well Having used it for a week of commuting to get the feel of the bike, I can say that the medium setting is adequate for most gradients, but if it is a really steep hill 25% gradient as you often get in Yorkshire, I use the high setting and this gets me up the hill. My advice is to test all the power settings with the gears and get the right one for you, but I found that on the low setting, the gear I use to get the electric assist is gear 3 or 4 max, and this would get you to a speed of about 10 mph. Then for the medium setting, I found that gear 5 is the best as you really feel the motor propel you forwards. This would normally get you to a speed of about 13 mph. On the highest setting, this should get you to a speed of about 15 miles an hour, but I only use this setting to climb very steep hills, I find the medium setting to be the best setting for slight to moderate inclines and it does push you forwards. A word of caution.. On the medium/high setting, be careful if starting up and coming out of a junction as it does propel you forwards quite quickly with only a very little turn of the pedal and you can quite easily end up in a lane of traffic. The brakes however will cut off the power immediately they are pulled so you can safely stop. If you use pannier bags like I do, then you do not have to worry. This was a concern for me when I got the bike as I used a pannier on my trek hybrid and I was worried the pannier bags would not work on or fit this bike. With a bit of adjustment of the supporting brackets at the top and bottom of the pannier bag, I was able to get it to fit my Carrera folding e bike with no problems. I do not like using back packs and have always used pannier bags, so I was pleased that I was able to get my bag to fit the pannier rack. Just adjust the pannier bag to the last setting so that the bag gives enough foot clearance. I have also filled up this bag and put it on the bike with no problems and it does not affect the balance. Just be careful if you put the pannier bag on the side of the gears, it may obstruct the movement of the gear cable which may cause the chain to come off the gear and get jammed. I use one pannier bag( which is adequate for me) on the left side of the bike where the bag will not interfere with the operation of the gears. In terms of the battery, my commute to work is about 10 miles a day, and I have to charge it every three days to ensure I have enough power and not run out of battery. I do however, as mentioned above only use the power on hills, so I could probably get another day out of it, but I do not want to find myself running out of battery whilst riding. I do notice that when there motor is ‘working hard’ on hills, I find the power indicator would drop a notch and will recover as the hill eases off. When the power indicator gets to one bar, and the motor is on high demand climbing a steep hill, I noticed the indicator will blink continuously. I presume this is warning you of the low power in the battery, and as other reviewers have mentioned, the performance does decrease the lower the power is in the battery, so it is wise to keep the battery charged up but they recommend the battery is charged only when it runs out of power. I have also used the bike in heavy rain that poured the whole 10 mile journey with no problems. Everything performed as it should, gears, brakes, power no problems. My work colleagues were very impressed with the bike when they first saw it, they were interested in its performance and the fact that it is a folding bike as well. It has inspired others to start riding to work. Well, I hope my review has helped you make a decision and helped you but as I found out, the best way is to try the bike for yourself and get used to the various settings on the gears and battery and the terrain you are riding in to ‘master’ the bikes performance to best suit your needs. All in all, a good bike and well worth the money and I recommend it,

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! I love this little bike! The design is elegant and practical. The quality of construction, components, finish, and attention to detail are absolutely first class. On the road the bike feels solid and safe with none of the 'twitchiness' often found with a short wheelbase. I put this down to the build quality, good weight distribution, and the fact that (unusually for a folder!) both the bars and saddle are fully adjustable for height and pitch which makes it easy to find a comfortable and safe riding position. The gears operate smoothly and are wide ranging. The power from the motor is suprising and copes easily with my 6' 13 stone frame. Battery life and re-charge times are good. I cannot vouch for commuting as I am in my 70's and long since retired but the bike folds up quickly and compactly. I offerred to buy my wife one but she says she's happy with the bike she has. I think she will change her mind - it would certainly save us petrol! The instruction booklets are also good. All in all, money well spent!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing difference I live in Otley an area in West Yorkshire with lots of hills. At a very mature age I realised that the Apollo folding bike I owned was good on the flat but not for the hills around. I reviewed the electric bikes and came to the conclusion that the Carrera Crosscity bike was the one I would like to have. It has 8 gears and three settings for battery power assistance. I have had this bike for just over 2 weeks and am delighted with it. I go swimming locally and there is a steep hill on the way there. Using the battery power makes it so easy and now I find that I can tackle the steepest hills in the area and compete with friends riding a regular bike. This has given me much more scope for what I can do with this bike so I thoroughly recommend it. It is not light but I can fold it and lift it into the back of the car when we travel to visit the family. Wonderful!!

    Rated 2 out of 5 by from Him33 Brought the bike November 2017 now March 2018 and the motor has started cutting out so not very impressed. Without the motor the bike is very heavy to use going over a very busy bypass. Have contacted Halfords and explained the problem with the motor and was informed when the bike is taken back they will check the battery. Halfords don't appear to listening to their customers

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love my new Carrera Crosscity ebike :-) I bought my new Carrera Crosscity ebike 1 week ago and have been cycling to work for 1 week now . The ebike is great makes cycling very easy and am doing 12.8 miles / 20,5km a day. Based on that had to recharge the battery every 2 days. It makes cycling to work fun and it's good also to get the extra speed on busy London streets.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Out of town I have used the bike in the new forest, using forest trails. Seems to be quite OK on rough tracks.

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from First Electric Bike Where do I start? 1) The bike with battery weighs in excess of 22kg. Unless you are strong it will be difficult carrying it folded up stairs. 2) The bike does not fold up into a compact stable item. This is not a Brompton. 3) No instruction booklet or even leaflet about the bike was given. This I find astonishing. If you buy a kettle from Tesco you get an instruction booklet. An electric bike is more complicated than a kettle yet no instruction booklet. It made me think that this was some type of knock off product. 4) On the wheels squealing as I was given the bike I was told that the bike needs ‘to break in’ and.then the squealing will stop. What turned out to be fact is the brakes were set up directly against the wheel rim without a 2mm gap on either side of the brake pads. This eventually resulted in the wheels not being able to rotate freely at all. I could not understand why it was so difficult to peddle.I then had to read up about how V brakes work and their setting. I was able to re-set the brakes allowing the wheels to freely move when the brake levers are not engaged. This too I found astonishing. 5) The kick stand is of poor quality and wobbles as the bike goes along. 6) The Bell is ridiculous and the pinging mechanism rotates all over the place. It was replaced by a proper bell from Decathlon. 7) The front reflector was on the handlebars taking up space leaving no room for a front light. 8) The handlebars had no rubber guides to stop it moving out of position when loosened. 9) The pedal assist is useful for getting away from cars at traffic lights and for getting up hills.
