UK bike brand Charge has joined forces with the Conran Shop for a limited bike range that will be available from November.

The Conran Shop, self-styled purveyor of classic British design since the swinging Sixties, was founded by Terence Conran and has ten shops in six countries.

The Charge x Conran bikes range will include two models; the Plug and new Hob, with its step-through frame, swept back bars and mudguards. Available in strictly limited numbers, the fuss-free rides feature three speed internal hub gears and Sturmey Archer gear shifters.

The Plug is pitched as a simple, classic, uncluttered and tough ride for urban riding. The fast riding bike has a less stretched-out, more upright riding position for comfort and improved visibility in traffic.

The urban workhorse has steel tubes that soak up the potholes, according to Charge. The full specs are:

• Cromo D/T & C/S frame, rack mounts
• Charge whisk steel fork
• Charge SS hubs, alex DM18 rims
• Charge single speed 42t crankset
• Sturmey Archer SRF 3 speed rear hub
• Sturmey Archer thumbie shifter
• Promax levers
• Charge Coaster 700x32c tyres
• Available In XXS, XS, S, M
• RRP £569.99

The other bike from the collaboration – The Hob – is Charge and Conran's take on a women's version of the Plug in a Mixte style frame. Fitted with the same spec to the Plug and with colour matched fenders, it also features Charge’s award winning ladies Ladle saddle and custom moustache bars.
