We covered the 29er by Charge, but that was back before they were in America. Now, UK’s Charge Bikes are in the US, carried exclusively by Performance Bike. Among many other bikes, they will feature the 2012 Charge Mixer (pictured above), a city bike with an 11 speed internal gear hub, disc brakes, and a Tange prestige frame for an old-school feel.
They’ll be available online for shipping anywhere in North America. Select urban Performance Bike retail shops (think Denver, Portland, etc.) will stock some or all models, but if you’re near a PB store, they can get it in and build it up for you and you’ll be able to take in for any warranty or service concerns as though they were a stockist.
This is Charge’s 29er, the Cooker Hi. It is made of Tange Prestige steel, same as the Mixer. and the disc brakes are hydraulic. The pricing on it is $999.99 at Performance. Click here for more info at Charge and here to check it out at Performance’s website.
Another bike that Performance is carrying is the Juicer Hi. The frame is Tange Prestige steel. This looks likes a decent commuter, featuring fenders and a fairly low price of $999.99. Check out more details on the Juicer Hi at Charge’s website here and Performance’s website here.
