Charge Bikes Grater 4 Complete Bike - 2016 Charge Bikes Grater 4 Complete Bike - 2016
Born in Great Britain, Charge is known for its urban machines that get riders from place to place without the hassle and complications commonplace with many of today's bikes. With this ethos in place, functionality is taken to the next level with its stealthy new Grater 4 Complete Bike. The Grater 4 combines this idea into one of the most rider-friendly packages we've seen at this price point, complete with hydraulic disc brakes and SRAM's proven one-by 11 drivetrain. Your commute just became something to look forward to. Similar to Charge's Plug range of urban navigating machines, the Grater uses the proven standby material in its frame construction: 6061 butted aluminum. Custom dropouts with rack and fender mounts add to the frame's versatility, allowing you to ride through the winter months and pack extra gear for the adventures ahead. Charge mated the durable aluminum main frame with a flat handlebar and straight blade carbon fork to save a bit of weight and help soak up the bumps of the road. The Grater 4 received a host of carefully selected components to keep things light, reliable, and safe. The standout feature would have to be SRAM's Rival one-by taking over in the drivetrain department, with a single ring up front mated to a Type 2 rear derailleur out back. An 11-36t cassette gives you a massive range of gearing options, while simultaneously eliminating front shifting from the equation. Shimano's BR-M445 hydraulic disc brakes give you a massive dose of stopping power, which is always welcome while riding in city traffic. Continental City Ride II tires keep you rolling, and Charge rounded out the build with fenders front and rear.

Diamondback Haanjenn Complete Bike - 2016 Diamondback Haanjenn Complete Bike - 2016
Not wanting to let the guys have all of the fun, Diamondback responded to the success of its go-anywhere Hnjo bikes by creating a sister line specifically made for women. The Hnjenn Complete Bike is the most budget-friendly model of the bunch, built with a solid aluminum frame and Shimano's ever-improving Sora drivetrain. As with the Hnjo, Diamondback strove to create a bike that would adapt to a variety of terrain, allowing riders to indulge their mid-ride impulses with as few limitations as possible. To do this, Diamondback starts with treated 6061-T6 aluminum, ensuring the frame itself achieves a desirable blend of durability, stiffness, and low weight. It then shapes that frame with an endurance geometry -- think longer wheelbase, higher stack height, and shorter reach. Endurance geometry has skyrocketed in popularity recently, and it's easy to see why; when paired with less aggressive, flat handlebars, the Hnjenn achieves a comfortable riding posture and intuitive handling with none of the twitchy jitteriness of a race frame. As you explore rolling bike paths, Shimano's one-by, nine-speed Sora drivetrain will do what you ask of it without complaint, allowing you to enjoy your ride without mechanical worries. Like all Shimano groupsets, Sora has received trickle-down technology from its flashier siblings, and it's only becoming smoother and easier to operate with time. Avid BB5 mechanical disc brakes offer reliable stopping power whether you're pedaling through wet mud or down steep grades on smooth roads, and the Hnjenn's alloy rims come wrapped in the aptly named Kenda Warthog tires -- a burly option that won't shy away from slippery, loose gravel, mud, or chip seal city streets.
