Riese & Müller Cargo Bikes
We're excited to be one of Riese and Müller's US dealers. Their philosophy is quite compatible with ours: produce high quality bikes and give customers options to customize their ride. Cargo bike buyers can select from two models (Load and Packster), three cargo box lengths on the Packster, cargo build out (box, platform, covers), high-torque or high-speed e-systems, dual or single batteries, and color. That's the customization that nets you a bike built to fit your needs, and that means you'll get the most out of your cargo bike.
We keep some R & M cargo bikes in stock, ready to sell, so contact us and we can tell you what's available. We'll also be offering free special orders. R & M produces so many options with each model, and with a special order purchase you can choose the options that fit your style and your bike will be built to order! We'll start by showing you the Packster, scroll down to see the Load.
R & M provides many options for each of their bike models. That means most customers prefer to special order a bike that includes the all of the features they want. That means you get exactly the bike you want, rather than what we have in stock. HOWEVER, several models have proven to be very popular, and we try to keep those models in stock.
We maintain a complete list of R & M bikes that are Available in Stock.
R & M Packster cargo bikes feature:
- low stand-over height

Two Bosch motor options:

Dual Battery option - add $1059
Riese & Müller is doubling the range of its E-Bikes with dual battery technology – in other words, by adding a second battery. This steps up battery capacity to 1,000 watt hours. Using a charger, both batteries can be charged at the same time. Depending on your needs, you can also use just one battery to go on a ride. The second battery is mounted beneath the loading surface in order to attain a low center of gravity, which has a positive impact on the riding characteristics. Its dual battery technology puts Riese & Müller at the top of its class in terms of riding range.
