Charge TV: Week 8: Twenty-niners can jump – Charge Cooker Single Speed.
Chris Doney shows us just what is possible on board his Charge Cooker 29er Single Speed. The bike he is riding in the video is a stock single speed 29er Charge Cooker frame in size small with some specially shortened (60mm travel) Rockshox Reba forks. This is one of a fleet of bikes that were made last year for the Red Bull / Charge Bikes Weavers slalom event. After the event we handed a few of these custom bikes out to a select few of the talented riders that attended… Chris was one of them!
