Whilst we’ve featured their single speed bikes before (like their Plug Racer) this is the first multi-geared Charge that we’ve blogged about.
This is the Charge Tap, an 8 speed road bike using handle grip-shifter gear changers and an internal geared hub. That might now answer your question if you’re wondering why you can’t see a rear mech (derailleur)! Internal hubs aren’t seen too often as most multi-geared bikes offer way more than 10 gears, but old timers will recall that lots of bikes use a Sturmey Archer internally geared rear hub.
With a white frame and mainly black components the bike looks striking. In the picture the bike looks to have a black Lee-Chi seatpost but you’ll see that the spec indicates a silver one. Maybe something you’ll want to confirm if that’s an issue for you.
The Charge Tap makes for a good hybrid or commuter bike, offering the trendy looks of a single speed but with the practicality of a geared bike.
