Great beautiful bike, show stopper!

PostedNovember 26, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
I've had this bike for about a week now and i've been loving it so much. Keep looking at it in awe as I think it really does have a great balance of classic design mixed with modern day components. I love the thin steel tubed frame, the pearlescent paint job is very striking and looks different depending on the light which is cool.
Already had a number of strangers on the street stop to compliment me on my bike, to say how great it looks.
Been using this everyday, from commuting to pleasure and leisure - a great ride all in all and it flies!
Going to go on my first big ride tomo to test it out on a longer distance : )
Buy one!

Good lesisure bike.

PostedNovember 25, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
The bike looks great and rides well, however after the 2nd time riding it the chain snapped and the gears keep sticking. It rides so well down hill or on the straight but not so well up hill; this may be due to the slow gear changes. The bike is 100% purple with an iridescent blue shine over the top. The gears are fantastic and I have put a rack on the back for my pannier bags.
Another down side is due to the handle bar frame being so wide normal/ cheap (stretchy rubber) bike lights are hard to fit on and I cannot find a bike bell that will fit either.
If I had thought it through better I would not have got this bike as I use it to commute to work. If you need a summer road bike just for leisure then it would be perfect.

Excellent Bike

PostedNovember 17, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
First ride impressions, smooth, well geared, well built and surprisingly fast.
The fit and finish of the bike is exceptional and I cannot recommend this machine highly enough.
Built in Britain is another added bonus.
However the gears did require immediate adjustment as they weren't very well set up by the Evans workshop.

Great steel road bike

PostedNovember 5, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight
Really pleased with the Charge, in my opinion it's the perfect city bike. Comfortable ride, really lightweight (I hardly notice any difference to my old aluminium road bike) and lovely gearset. My only issue was the paint job; in the pictures it looks grey but in reality it has a pink or lilac metallic finish. The logos are pretty horrible too. So I got the frame re-sprayed a new colour and now it's perfect all round!

Buy one before they are gone

PostedSeptember 28, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good quality, Comfortable, Looks great
Looking for a classic (horizontal top tube) but modern steel all round everyday bike for life? - look no further. This is the real deal in steel. Tange Prestige is beautiful and skinny. Rides like a dream and the pearlescent paint job needs to be seen to be believed. This rides as well as my custom built reynolds 853 steel road bike. Charge have done a good job on these since 2010, but have decided to stop making them for 2014. Buy one now before they have all gone!

Great road bike, but not grey!

PostedApril 10, 2013
Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, bright lilac if that's your thing
This is my first road bike and am very happy with it. It's a fantastic ride and the compact gears seem really robust. I'm a massive fan of the saddle too, Charge has done a great job on this.
One major thing to note... don't be fooled by the "grey" description of the colour and the reassuring grey seen in the pictures. It's actually bright lilac! Especially in sunlight, it's gleaming pearlescent purple. My housemate described it as "the colour of unicorns".
If you're looking for a manly man bike perhaps think again. I like to think I'm comfortable with the colour (cos i'm a massive stud...) but really, i'm likely to get the frame resprayed at some point in the future.
In summary: it's a brilliant ride. Or rather, a FABULOUS ride
