just got this and i have to say for the price this a great DAB radio. ok the reception could be a little better, but you have to take into account the size of the radio. plus the screen update on the scrolling text is a little poor.
i've plugged mine into my amp through the 3.5 headphone socket.

these have the same feel to them as the halfords professional range of car spanners. a real joy to use, and they will last and last if you look after them.
the tool wrap keeps things all together nicely

I am looking for a replacement headset for the carrera subway 8. Please could you advise if this part will fit and if not can I order the replacement headset through Halfords?

many thanks

this being the right headset for your subway 8 depends on two things; if its a early model then no it will not fit, you'll need a 'normal headset. if yours is a newer model [brought a couple of years back] when yes this internal headset is perfect

The BikeHut Rear Alloy Bike Pannier Rack is ridiculously handy for touring and commuting.
 

Can a Pannier Rack Fit a Full Suspension Bike Like the Apollo Outrider?

Top 10 Contributor
Top 10 Contributor
yes. but, you'll have to buy a seatpost mounted carrier so it doesn't effect the rear suspension. plus about 3 inches of clear seatpost will be needed

if the scratch isn't deep and hasn't gone through the top layer, try a abrasive polish. if the scratch has gone down to the under-coat halfords sells a wide range of car touch-up paint including a lacquer to finish it off
