    Details

    Your exploration command station.

    Expanding on its lineup of purposeful bikes that get you from one rowdy place to the next, without a fuss, British-based Charge Bikes unveils its all-new Plug 2. This model within the Plug range gets treated with disc brakes, a carbon fork, and a reliable component package, giving you the ideal platform for both a speedy commuter and epic adventurer, without emptying your wallet.

    Constructed with Charge's "All-Road" geometry and the tried-and- proven material of choice, 6061-series butted aluminum, the Plug range provides the versatility and durability necessary to take on the pavement, gravel, and dirt roads you’re likely to encounter out in the wild. The Plug is characterized by its burly wheels, rack and fender compatibility, and solid component selection, which really just means it's ready for you to throw a leg over it and get after it. The neutral geometry keeps you comfortable as the miles stack up, and its carbon fork and large-volume tires add up to cush rolling and long-haul durability.

    The Plug 2 receives Shimano's reliable 2x8 Claris groupset, complete with a compact 50/34t crankset and an 11-32t cassette out back. Pro Max DSK-300 mechanical disc brakes handle stopping duties, with Maxxis' custom skinwall Roamers providing big doses of comfort, traction, and that all-important touch of retro style.

    Have questions about this product?

    Would this bike work for cycle-cross? Not the competitive kind, but the beer drinking recreational kind...

    Hey Ben,



    You could probably get away with using the Charge Bikes Plug 2 for cyclocross, at least recreationally, but it is going to be pretty heavy and I would recommend upgrading to a different tire better suited for dirt. Check out the Ridley X-Bow, X-Ride and X-Trail as other options that are cyclocross-specific.
