Fantastic inner city bike

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight
Lightweight, simple and a great ride. 8 gears are ample for city riding, frame is light enough to carry but sturdy enough to handle city roads.

Ticks all the boxes!

Yes, I recommend this product.
Pros: Good value, Good quality, Comfortable, Lightweight, Looks great
Primarily bought this bike for fitting a child seat to as MTB or road bike wasn't suitable. This has become the perfect bike for dashing about the village, doing the nursery pick up and general day to day getting about. Being in a hilly area, the 8 gears are ideal (glad I didn't go for a fixie in the end!). Looks good, like the S M L sizing is simple enough not to require much maintenance and great value for money.
Speedy delivery - ordered at 3pm and it arrived the next morning - much to my wife's surprise!

Pros: Good value, Good quality, Lightweight, Looks great
Cons: hard grips
I was torn between a road bike and a hybrid for my commutes to work but went with a Charge Grater in the end and I'm glad I did. It has narrower tires (32mm) and a lighter frame than most hybrids while still offering the control and uprightness of its kind (useful for negotiating your way through traffic). Given the pot holes, I'm grateful for it's durability and comfort when compared to road bikes and I'm still able to accelerate quickly when necessary. It's also a fantastic looking bike from a respected company.
On the downside, you do find yourself wishing for an extra gear or two at the top end. The front ring has just 38 teeth and the bike would have benefited from more. You don't tend to use the lowest two gears anyway. It's a relatively inexpensive upgrade though.
The grips could also have done with a bit more padding. While they offer good grip they do make your hands hurt after a few miles. Decent gloves and/or replacement grips are, again, inexpensive and do little to detract from what is a great riding and looking bike for its price.
Overall, I'm loving the bike!
