The Grater range of urban bicycles is built around lightweight aluminum frames and reliable parts for riding in any weather. Durable wheels, puncture resistant tires and anti-rust chains are just some of the features you will find across the range to help keep maintenance to a minimum. Charge's award-winning saddles and grips are fitted to every model.
The Shimano 8 speed drivetrain is the perfect combination of performance and durability, ensuring reliable shifting whatever the conditions.
With an urban bike you need urban wheels, so charge hooked up the Grater with a set of Charge Urban double-walled alloy rims, they have then laced these to a set of Charge Alloy looseball hubs. With regards to tires the wheels have been rapped in a set of Charge Coaster tires in a 32c width which have a puncture protection layer to reduce the chances of punctures. Overall these are an awesome wheelset for the urban style riding that can take a little more abuse than the average 700c wheelset.
The finishing kit is is made up of a combination of Charge parts. Taking control of the bar, stem and seatpost with the award winning Spoon saddle.

Charge is a British-based cycle brand, drawing on years of experience to create practical and refined bicycles for the everyday cyclist. Cycling has exploded in popularity and so has consumer choice – choosing a bicycle can be confusing, so Charge decided to strip back the product line and launch the three bike categories that define Charge best: the Plug, Grater, and Cooker. The Plug is a multipurpose road bike with progressive geometry and fast-rolling large volume tires that provide superior comfort, speed and durability. The Grater takes the performance aspects of the Plug frame and adds the functionality benefits of fenders and flat bars for urban use. The all-new Cooker bikes are designed around the new 27Plus wheels – blending the speed and rollover of a 29er, the cushioning of a fat bike tire and the quick agility of a 27.5, all with unparalleled grip on any terrain. This is the new standard in off-road biking.
The size chart below will get you on the right size bike. Experienced riders may also wish to refer to the geometry chart for more detail.

If you are on the change over between sizes both options will fit. Racers and experienced riders would usually select a smaller size as this offers quicker handing. A larger bike offers more stability and is more suited to new and intermediate riders.
