2015 Charge Cooker 4 (Performance Bicycle Exclusive)
First off, I do not have the regular Charge Cooker 4. I purchased a special edition made for Performance Bicycle, which is the Cooker 4 frame with upgraded components. The price was also insanely low to get the brand's name out there ($850 compared to $1400).
This is my first 29er an it took a little getting used to after my Sports Authority 26". With the combination of my 29" wheels and the RockShox 30 Gold fork, I can roll over almost anything. The Shimano components also were a plus and I had no issues shifting or braking. Also, the Charge Spoon seat is incredibly comfortable! I could barely feel the bumps from the trail.
The pedals are so-so, but usable.
Awesome bike! I needed a small frame, instead of my normal medium, so they run a little larger.
