Description

Originally a Charge Plug 1 2015. Size small (52cm frame, suitable for 5′ 6″ - 5′ 8″).

Stripped the frame and painted it hotrod red and added vinyl lettering reading "put the fun between your legs", left the forks raw (lacquered them to protect them from the elements). The paint is chipped and the forks have a fair bit of rust. No dents or cracks.

Used as a commuter for 3 years. Done well over 10,000km.

Upgraded components as they've needed replacing:
- Wheels are Halo Aerorage (£160 RRP)
- Tyres are WTB thick slicks
- Chainring and fixed cog are Surly
- Front brake Shimano 105.

Other things that have been changed:
- Swapped the bullhorn handlebars for narrow, flat bars.
- Swapped out the stem for a 150mm one (the frame is too small for me, hence the super long stem).
- Added MK3 Roadracer mudguards (taped on with electrical tape because the provided fixtures didn't work).
- Added the BLB take away tray.
- Swapped the stock pedals for Shimano SPD pedals, with flat pedals on the reverse.

I can swap out the stem for something smaller, or swap the flat handlebars for drop bars, although you'll need to wrap them. I'll give the bike a once over before selling to make sure everything's in top working order.

The frame being ratty makes this an ideal pub bike, but the quality build means it's still fast and bomb proof. This has been my reliable steed for the last few years and has never let me down. Only selling her to make room in the stable for a more off-road capable steed.
