Questions & Answers for Carrera Carrera Centos Limited Edition Mountain Bike 2012 -18"

Question
I'm 5ft 8-9 what size should i get 18" 20"?
I am 5ft 8-9, and i had my mind set on buying this bike, i tired out the 20" that was on show in halfords and my tippy toes were holding me up (i was in tight trousers) , a halfords bike team recommended i buy the 18", im not very knowledgeable about bike sizes so i assumed he was right, i have put a deposit on the bike and i assume it is currently being built, im worried the 18" will look like a kids bike? what should i do? and what size should i have gotten?

20" is for 6ft and minimum 33 inside leg. 18 inch is fine for 5ft 8 so long as your inside leg is around 30". Below 30 then yu'll have to choose between fitting your leg or your torso

I am 5' 8" and have just bought the 18inch. It wont look like a kids bike. If you buy the 20" you will be over stretching continuously, unless you have extra long legs and arms.

Well, I am 6 foot 1 and I have the 20" version, even though 2 inches doesn't sound like much of a difference, it makes a huge difference.. My friend who is probably around 5Ft 3 tried an 18 Inch version of the Vengance.. too big.. 17 Inch other bike.. Just right, In the end he got the 16 inch Vengance!

I think you should go for the 18 inch version!

Question
Is this bike good for jumps if not what parts do I need to change.
Hi I have this bike I have done no modifications to it, I was wondering if it would be any good for jumps and if it wasn't what parts would I need to change. I'm quite into biking and also I'm 14 so I don't have loads if money to spend on parts because I don't have a job.

Thanks

This model is not suitable for tricks and jumps.

If you modify it in any way you will unfortunately invalidate the warranty.
