After a couple of hours reading reviews, and weighing up the various pros and cons, I put an order in for a new bike this morning – a “Charge Plug 0”. It’s a single speed hybrid road bike – like nothing I have ever owned before.
It will start it’s life with no mudguards, and no lights – and of course it has no gears, and no suspension. Later in the year I will add lights, but for the moment I’m just going to live with it “as is”. I’m looking forward to it – it’s rare that I get a new bike – the last one was acquired after the previous one was stolen – about six years ago.
It’s going to be a huge change after riding mountain bikes for the last twenty years
