    Definitely better aesthetics IMO. Any other upgrades other than tires? 135 rear without single speed option stinks. Would look really nice with a White Bros fork.

    Re: charge cooker maxi

    Here is a photo of the 2015 steel version

    It appears the alloy one is called Cooker Maxi 1 and steel Cooker Maxi 2
    It would be nice if they had slidding dropouts

    Note - I just found these photos when googling 2015 Charge Bikes - they are from a Japanese web site

    The black one looks like it's got more stand over.

    don't shift. pretty simple.

    a heavy psuedo plastic fork would be a waste. the tange blades ride real nice, imo.

    Me too. I asked my lbs they said just use automotive touch up paint. If its starting to rust I would sand it down a bit to get rid of the rust.

    You just need the wider clamps from Mendon cycle Smith. It comes with a 1 1/8" steerer.

    Rog I recently posted something about going tubeless with my Cooker - weinmann rims not great for this - have you converted to Marge Lites and if so are they more tubeless friendly?

    Has anyone tried to fit a 29+ wheel in their Cooker? I'm interested in the steel version.

    I just paid for mine, picked up off eBay for 500 shipped to my door. Slightly used, but looks to have Maxxis Mammoth 120 TPI tires, and a Maxi 2 fork on it. Also is a 2016 Model.

    I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve...

    Immediately it is getting some Shimano half and half pedals, my computer if I can figure out the correct diameter of the wheels (to track mileage more than anything), Lights (niterider something up front, and Knogg something rear blinky fella) and some bottle cages off my last setup.

    Dave, good work, take my advice and live with it before adding things like sus forks etc - the geo on this bike is perfect, you could do a little work on bringing the weight down but IMO this can actually help when piling through rock gardens, monster truck stylee.. The steel tubing has been carefully selected for pliance, and don't forget in the snow it helps up front to go rigid to start with - if you go off trail you know what is you and what is blancmange.. Good luck with that epic bike, I love mine :-)

    As pictured it is 36.6 lbs, and I think it won't get too much lighter without spending a lot of money. (I put Shimano M324's on so it is easier to casually cruise with my family-Niterider Light mount, rear Knogg Frog light and a Specialized h20 Cage).

    Sadly life caught up this week with my wife getting sick etc so I couldn't really slip out for a ride. Hopefully in the next couple of days I can for an hour or two. Oddly enough we don't have really ANY snow here in my area of Minnesota (pretty much the middle of the state) either...been a pretty tame winter.

    There she is! Finally had its inaugural ride today. Surprisingly quick feeling. I'm no racer, so take that for what you will...

    I loved the cush of the tires/frame over most terrain, but sometimes the bigger rocks and roots still thumped pretty hard. I just might put a lefty on it!
