charge 2010 offerings

charge is one of my favorite yet unattainable bikes out there. with a downhill racing as well as big bike background, id have to say i love the history these guys have. oh and they have juliet elliot , superted, tom la marche, and  at one point tony fast was on a charge bike. for 2010 they come out with a citizen aimed serving: the 2010 juicer:


looks like some great road performance in a classic steel frame.
and to the sh*t we're all looking at, the griffin.

"From understated elegance to something a little more in yer face: the Charge Griffin: this bike is the first fruits of Charge's collaboration with outdoor clothing designer Jeff Griffin and features their Straw 'bars (Charge's version of the Fixie inc Car Scratcher bar) plus a special Griffin version of the new Bucket saddle (more on that below). Colour scheme is predominantly blue and white with colour matched tyres – blue Vittoria Zaffiros, and chain – white Charge Masher. Hubs and spokes are colour-matched too. Like the other Plugs the Griffin boasts a Tange singlespeed frame with and a 42T Sugino Messenger RD2 crankset matched up with a 16T rear cog."

he spelled tires with a y. gotta love them english peoples.

in addition to all of this, there's the charge "bucket" seat

which looks AMAZING and turbo esque.
the more modern "knife" seat

and the "straw" bars

those will come in blk, blu, SCURPLE, red, and slver. Oh and theres a riser version called the "spit" releasing with this one too
