- New SS or Hub geared bike
Hi, I’m in the market for a new bike. Here’s the criteria:
– low maintenance (so SingleSpeed or Hub geared)
– bit of a do it all bike. 2 mile mixed commute, out with kids along river etc.
– first single speed so want a freewheel
So far I’ve narrowed it down to these:
Charge Plug 3 £405.99
Vitus Vee 29 £292.49 (very nice price!)
On-One Pompino £499.99 (£525 with freehweel)
Would you recommend anything else? What’s everyones thoughts on the above?

Does anyone know if it would be possible to fit the Charge Plug 3 with some drops? like these? http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Charge-Bowl-Drop-Bars-Road-Style-for-Fixie-Singlespeed-Bike-NEW-/110990661934?pt=UK_sportsleisure_cycling_bikeparts_SR&var=&hash=item19d78f192ePosted 4 years agobishMember
What about?Posted 4 years ago
I’m pretty tempted myself at that price even though I don’t need one.
@Duffer, yeah no long have the Croix De Fer, it was an overkill for what I needed to decided to free up some cash and downgrade to something simpler. I never changed gear at all on my commute so just want something nice and simple.
@Bish, I really like the look of that and it’s extremely cheap. Are they decent? I’ve never heard of that brand before. Cant seem to find any reviews on it.
Got acccess to a new Genesis Day One Disc for £550 so thats another one in the running now :S Very intrigued by that Merlin though!Posted 4 years ago
