Does somebody has experience with Carrera bikes? Any model from the last 5 years.... Any trouble with cracks, quality etc?
I found only one thread about these bikes here at WW.. and in general on the internet is also very difficult to find any review, infos etc.. although you can find some more infos in japanese (it looks that they are a bit more popular there)
Thanks for any infos!

Great bikes and good quality. Almost 2 years in and I havent had any problems. Current weight is around 6500 grams.
Also of note, I am still on my original ROTOR BB4130, no roughness or play, thats with about 13 000 km on it.
Initially built with Chorus mechanical and 303's, later converted to Chorus EPS.
Feels plenty stiff. I've done GP races, hill sprints, and long climbs on it and it hasn't let me down. Noticeable difference in speed late spring when I switch from my steel road bike to the Carrera

Actually one thing that annoyed the hell out of me is that the clear coat on my matte carbon frame seems to be some sort of film that comes off super easy. I got the frame with some bits and pieces taped to the frame with standard electrical tape and it ripped a section of the clear coat right off when I removed it.
By the way my other bike is a 2017 Madone 9.9. So I am comparing the Carrera with a top frame
Shimano Di2 Dura Ace & Ultegra mix
Ciamillo GSL Micro Brakes
Deda Zero 100 alloy bar
Deda Zero 2 Stem (while I cannot decide the correct size... later a Superleggera)
Deda Superleggera seatpost 0º
Selle Italia SLR carbon saddle
Gyroscope 38mm carbon tubulars (Conti sprinter 25)
Favero Assioma pedals (not on the picture... 25g less than those Look)

Is it an heavy frame? Or the wheels?
there is room for weight saving on the bars and stem, skewers pretty heavy at 116g.. wheels are 1250g... frame size 53, 759g ... fork something like 320 uncut
But for a while I am happy with 6.8
