Charge Bikes Plug 4 Bike 2016

All About the Experience.

Based in the leafy hills of Somerset, England you will find Charge Bike engineers and designers that are infused with passion and curiosity for all things bikes. Charge goes against the grain and streamlines bicycle design in order to suit function. Each product in their lineup is a piece of innovation that breeds joy and furthers the culture of cycling.

Yes, there is no doubt about it the Plug 4 is a simple bike with nice features that shape your cycling experience. Charge went for 6061-aluminum when revamping the Plug 4 frame. Whether you decide to bikepack around or commute to your local coffee shop, the rack and fender mounts will come in handy for the extra baggage. While the frame is durable and practical for everyday use, the carbon straight blade fork helps reduce road chatter adding extra comfort to your ride.

The Plug 4 is built with a trusty Shimano 11-speed drivetrain. Shimano 105 shifters and derailleurs offer responsive shifting while the Shimano RS500 compact crank keeps you spinning. When you apply the brakes, the Render R calipers bring pristine braking power with 160mm rotors. Charge paired the Plug 4 to roll on the tubeless ready Alex Draw 1.9 disc rims laced to their own Charge Lite hubs. For 2016, Charge opted to wrap the wheelset with wider Maxxis Roamer tires, 42c wide to be exact with a custom skinwall. Keep your mind churning with adventures because the Plug 4 is game.

  • 6061-series butted aluminum with custom dropouts

Good value, fun ride

Comments about Charge Bikes Plug 4 Bike 2016:

I really like this bike. Coming from an old school carbon race frame, I was looking for something that I could beat on a bit and upgrade over time with some better, lighter parts. The frame on this bike looks great, with solid welds and comfortable geometry. The slack head angle is stable, and the frame is quite laterally stiff - nice when you lay the power down.

I have to say I was planning on immediately getting rid of the massive tires, and while I am swapping to a pair of tubeless 28c tires for my day to day riding, the big tires add a major fun element. Sure, they are heavy and piggish to get up to speed, but they dampen road vibrations brilliantly and feel great off road.

The Shimano drivetrain is buttery smooth right out of the box, only requiring tweaking as the cables stretch. The stock bars are surprisingly comfortable too.

Only parts that are a little disappointing are the brakes and wheels. The brakes just don't have much power, even after properly bedding them in, though they do improve after the first 5 rides or so. The wheels are tubeless ready, which is nice, and have looseball hubs to allow for manual adjustments (which I feel can make the wheels last longer), but the wheels are heavy. Also, mine showed up out of round - something I blame Jenson for not checking.
