I was fondling one of these in the LBS today. The Charge Plug, I love it.

Bargain at less than £400 too.

Definately on my 'list'.

Cool bit of kit for summer cruising to the pub.

Dunno, ripped the pics straight from the review. Does look very tidy though!

I'm just drooling over the Titanium version

Not such a good deal at £999 for a frame... Although it does look nice.

Good looking bike but I reckon for use in the UK they've missed a trick in having no mudguard fixings (you could fit raceblades but they are a compromise really) - if there were some it would be a really versatile, year round commuter/pub bike.

The market for this sort of bike is pretty rammed at the moment so I think there will be some secondhand bargins to be had as people try ss/fixed, decide it's not for them and sell on.

I keep thinkng the Cotic roadrat looks pretty cool.
But then stop short thinking that an old steel frame/forks with 700c wheels and Onza HOs would be just as good and much cheaper :?
