Puts the grin in Grinduro.

Despite our misleading name, Competitive Cyclist isn't about Lycra-clad hammerfests where every outing on the bike with friends inevitably turns into a snot-bubble pain duel. Well, we're not only into that. Charge Bikes' Plug Grinduro Complete Bike is a celebration of the days when we want equal parts cycling celebration, foodie indulgence, and—yes—singlespeed pain cave-ery. The Plug Grinduro is pretty much an amalgam of everything we like about the race of the same name, all you have to do is add food, friends, and CAT 5 tattoos in whatever you quantities you do (or don’t) prefer.


Regardless of how you dress it up, the Plug Grinduro is essentially a Plug 1 topped with a fresh purple visage, a custom stem and saddle, and the sinister man-in-the-mountain mascot painted on the fork. The bike is designed to celebrate Charge Bikes' move to become "the title sponsor" for the Grinduro race.


The changes aren't all aesthetic, though; Charge builds the Grinduro edition with hydraulic TRP stoppers, ensuring that high speeds don't necessarily engender high risks of injury due to insufficient stopping power. The addition of disc brake rotors does mean that the Grinduro doesn't feature the Plug 1's flip-flop hub; it's singlespeed with a freewheel only.


The Plug Enduro still features 6061-series aluminum tubing cut and welded in the pattern of Charge's neutral, All-Road geometry. This combination of materials and shaping provide the versatility and durability necessary to take on the questionable surfaces that Grinduro made its name with. The fact that it's a singlespeed means you may have to occasionally work a bit harder on the climbs, but you'll appreciate the freewheel while descending.
