Riese & Muller Birdy City Options:

Grips & Pedals options: 

Accents are charming. In fact, they’re often irresistible. Whatever, they make things interesting. Choose from six color variants for the pedals and handles from SALT or the combination of ergonomic handles from Ergon and non-slip Trekking pedals from VP-191 in black.

Stem options:

A sporty ride through the city or perhaps a more comfortable trip with a more upright seating position? The choice is yours. The height-adjustable stems are available in a Sport version at a 21° angle for a dynamic seat position, or in the Comfort version at a 10° angle.

Carrier Option:

A folding luggage carrier for a folding bike. The optional luggage carrier is designed so that it collapses downwards when the bike is folded. Extended, fitting a pannier is child’s play. In combination with a lowrider, the panniers can also be secured to the front wheel fork. And collapsed, the lowrider becomes the pull handle for the Birdy.

Riese & Muller uses a modern Just in Time inventory strategy. Every bike is built to order in their Germany factory.

We have worked with R&M and several logistics partners to offer our customers several ordering options.

Twice a month we receive a container from Riese & Muller shipped via Sea Freight. If preferred, you have the option of having your bike shipped individually to you, arriving to us one week after it is built, for $300. **please note that cargo bikes are excluded from expedited shipping.

If you’d like a bike shipped to your home it will have to go to our shop first for us to fully build and test the bike. Please select freight when checking out.

If you have any questions about this process please feel free to contact us or if you are interested in checking out the Riese & Muller bikes that we have available for immediate shipment, please check out our Riese & Muller Stock section.
