A Compact E-Bike of Stature

Your solution to commuter stress. Although the Riese & Müller Tinker ebike is a compact bike it performs like a 'big bike'. It is fully eqipped with excellent accessories such as Supernova lighting and has a strong, rigid frame that is agile, beautifully balanced and therefore very manoeuvrable. The attention to detail in the ergonomics and the handlebar adjustability, combined with the superb power and acceleration of the Bosch Performance CX motor means this is an e-bike for any rider. Although not a pure folding bike, it has foldable handlebars, adjustable seatpost and folding pedals so it can easily be stored in the back of a car or caravan. 

Riese & Muller have cleverly designed adjustable handlebars to make it easy to interchange riders in a family. It accommodates rider heights from 1.5m to 1.95m. Comfort is still a key priority too with ergonomic grips and saddle, front suspension and balloon Schwalbe Big Ben Plus tires. The bikes in stock at Electric Bikes Brisbane also come equipped with the thudbuster suspension seatpost option to provide greater comfort and versatility for riding Brisbane's rougher roads and forest trails. 

Riese & Muller have also developed a handy rear cargo platform with a quick release cargo box. This is optional ($109) and is an excellent solution for someone looking to use their Tinker as a cargo carrier or car substitute.

The Most Powerful of Compact eBikes

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 Gen2 system which has 75Nm of torque on offer so, with the fat-tired 20" wheels you will be climbing Mount Coot-tha just for fun. The motor is paired with an easily-removed 500Wh battery which will provide an impressive range of up to 150km. 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 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 belts last longer than chains and you no longer have to worry about chain maintenance and messy chain grease.
