An E-Bike of Stature.

Your solution to commuter stress. Although the Riese & Müller Tinker is a compact bike it performs like a 'big bike'. It has a extremely strong, rigid frame that is agile, beautifully balanced and therefore very manoeuvrable. The attention to detail in the ergonomics and comfort, combined with the superb power and acceleration of the Bosch Performance CX motor, means this is an e-bike for any rider.

The combination of the Enviolo 380 continuous hub gears and carbon Gates belt drive provides simple, silent gear changing and next to no maintenance. The smaller 20" wheels make it an easy bike to handle and the compact frame is cleverly designed to accommodate a wide range of rider heights from 1.5m to 1.95m. Compact enough to take on trains and store upstairs. And, although not a pure folding bike, it has foldable handlebars and adjustable seatpost to make it compact enough for the back of your car.

Compact with power: the Bosch Performance CX eBike System

Smooth, Continuous Power and Acceleration when it matters most. The Riese & Müller Tinker is powered by the most powerful of the Bosch drive systems, the Bosch Performance CX system which has an extra 25% torque on offer. Bosch systems are renowned for their long-lasting high-performance assist on any type of terrain and with the Bosch Performance CX and the 20" wheels you will be climbing Mount Coot-tha just for fun. The motor is paired with a 500Wh battery which is mounted in the frame for great balance and will provide an impressive range of up to 130km. The Bosch Intuvia on-board computer provides you with a selection of five riding modes - off, eco, sport, touring, turbo - so you choose how hard or how easy you would like to ride, and there is also the handy button-operated 'walk-assist' mode.

A perfect pairing - Enviolo 380 continuous gears and Gates belt drive

Simplify your life. To make your riding experience as comfortable and easy as possible, Riese & Müller have equipped the Tinker with the Enviolo 380 continuous hub gears paired with the revolutionary carbon Gates belt drive (think Harley Davidson). The internal gears allow you to change your gears in one continuous motion. Just twist the shifter and the gear ratio is changed to any ratio within its 380% range.

The best thing about this system is that you can change while riding under load and can also change while you are stationary. Instead of having a traditional chain the Riese & Müller Tinker is also fitted with a belt drive. Gates Corporation, leaders in this technology, have adopted motorcycle technology to electric bicycles to provide a 'chain' that can easily handle the higher loads and pressures of e-bikes. The best thing about them is that the belts last longer than chains and you no longer have to worry about chain maintenance and messy chain grease.
