Charge Scourer 2012 Hybrid Bike

Charge Bikes specialise in uncomplicated yet functional bicycles and frames with a distinct and contemporary styling. Their frames are designed using carefully selected tube sets which are specifically chosen to fit requirements. Charge's main love is for Steel and Titanium tubes from renowned tubing makers Tange, they have a long pedigree in producing materials of the highest quality and as a result Tange tubing makes up the mainstay of the range which covers everything from cutting edge titanium mountain and road frames to simple fixed gear bikes. Charge intend to be a breath of fresh air in a world of generic hydroformed aluminium, carbon and expensive, complicated dual suspension. Charge products are designed to inspire you to get out there and ride, no matter what type of cycling you're into.

Nice bike

PostedSeptember 9, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Bought this on the ride to work scheme. Was undecided on this or another bike (pinnacle neon 3) and I went for this on the looks and disc brakes.
I had the handlebars cut down because they were massive and my feet catch on the back of the frame like the other review, i didnt really notice it on the test ride! Im a size 10 so anythinsg under should miss! I will buy pedal extenders to combat it if it annoys me, not really at the moment. The staff were great with me too.
Overall its a fast, sturdy good looking bike. Ive finally got a good riding position and its now a comfortable ride.
I had a MTB bike with forks on and this flys compared to that
Im hoping it lasts for a long time too

Good bike with a good but flawed ride

PostedSeptember 24, 2012
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Cons: flawed frame design
I am, overall, very happy with the bike. I got an exceptionally good price match deal so my satisfaction levels are higher than they would have been at £500+.
Positives
It is a fast (but firm) ride with very crisp gear changes and good brakes. The bike looks good (IMO obviously).
Negatives
My feet catch the bike frame and rear brake cable. when I mentioned this to the Evans staff, it was suggested I move my feet position. This, obviously helps, but does not feel like a natural position for me.
The chain catches on the chain gauard in the lowest two gears. The Evans staff suggested that this happens with most bikes and these gears should therefore be used sparingly!
Overall - this is a good bike, or a great bike if you have narrow feet!
