During Interbike week, we borrowed a variety of bikes from companies to ride from our rental house to the indoor show, plus to parties and happenings around town after dark. Not only did this make our experience much more enjoyable, it allowed us a closer look at some of the latest offerings in the realm of transportation and utility bikes. Over the next couple of weeks, we will be presenting our impressions of our time with these bikes as mini-reviews on the Bicycle Times website.

I’d love to make it easy on myself, and make this mini-review truly "mini" by summing up the Charge Plug with one succinct sentence: "The Charge Plug is an incredibly cool and aesthetically awesome bike that’s extremely simple in its design and function." But the editorial team would be rather pissed at me, and it wouldn’t do enough justice to the bike. Click here to read the mini-review.
