Was down at Monza picking up some supplies today and Jay showed me around the new Charge range. S’posed to retail for around $1100-$1400ish. Also have Ti frames to boot…
Anyone got, used, rode one?
I have seen both the Charge Plug Freestyle & the Plug Racer . The Racer is a very nicely done off the shelf bike where as the Freestyle is purple & green for the Hipsters .
Have the dreaded Unipack bikes hit Oz yet ? They are a supposed US import bike that has hit the UK but are dangerous pieces of shit .
Check out http://www.unipackuk.co.uk/track-bikes_roadcourier.html & stay away from them . They cop a hilarious beating on the London fgss site
We’ve got a bunch of Charge Bikes coming into our shop (www.wembleycycles.com) as soon as they arrive in OZ. I’ve seen them in the flesh at the dealer show in Perth a few weeks ago and they look awesome. Pricing is quite reasonable as well.
“72° parallel seat tube and head tube” meh… like riding ure mumma.
I don’t get why people rip so much shit about the quality of these cheap street fixie colourful taxi cab messenger" thingos, I would rather ride a new tigged steel frame with track drops then some old converted puss heap of a frame that creaks more than ure grand-mumma's joints. Sure people have pride in their sick builds", though it doesn’t make em any less sketchy or these token ``courier fixed gear bikes" any worse. As long as u say hi, and do a skid for me when I’m drunk and yelling at u from the foot path then I’m happy.
I’m getting a batch in and all the saddles too.
No word from the KHS people and still no idea when they will show so am going with the charge’s.
Monday the 15th and yeah most of my first order is spoken for.
