So with my commitment to riding and with the weather changing I decided it was time to look at purchasing another bike to add to the collection. The idea was a low maintenance, fast, good looks and reliable commuting bike that could also stand up to the elements. After some looking around, I found the one that ticked all the boxes. 2011 Charge Mixer.
The Charge Mixer 2011 Hybrid Bike features a Tange, 700c infinity tubed frame, with heat treatment and rack mounts, Tange Mixer Chromoly Forks and Shimano Alfine SG-S500 internal 8 speed hub. Its very low maintenance and cheap to run in a long term. Shimano’s 486 hydraulic discs take care of the stopping. Its also made in the UK.
