Riese & Muller Birdy

The Birdy.
Supremely functional.

The Birdy: a Swiss pocket knife that you can mount and ride away on. Tucked away, it might not fit in every trouser pocket perhaps, but it certainly will fit in any car boot and any form of public transport. And when it’s needed, it simply opens out. Be it on holiday or for day-to-day working. It doesn’t take much longer to open up than a pocket knife either. Its cleverly thought-out frame without hinge joint in the main frame and the adapted ratio range deliver a riding experience just like any normal bike. The full suspension surpasses even its riding safety and comfort. Regular bikes had better watch out.

Record folder.

No other folding bike in the world can be folded as quickly as the Birdy. Of course, you have to practice a few times until you can do it fluidly. Birdy holds the world record at 4.9 seconds. Its folded dimensions are then 80 x 62 x 34 cm. In addition to its fast and compact folding properties, its quick, sporty riding characteristics just like those of a regular bike are impressive.

Unbendingly flawless.

A folding bike without a hinge on the main frame? Not only can it be done, but it can be done so with style and functionality. Because the pivot points of the suspension act as the pivot points for folding the bike, the Birdy achieves the same frame stability as a normal bike. And so it rides like one too. Another advantage that this brings is the Birdy’s wonderfully low weight.

Maintains a deep relationship with the road.

Only a folding bike with true full suspension keeps contact with the ground on poor roads – and keeps you in full control. The active rear swing arm with favorable pivot point position and optimized anti-dive front wheel suspension form the core of the Control Technology. They ensure better road holding and safety at high speeds and in tricky situations. The immediately appreciable advantage is the back-sparing riding comfort. Vibrations and hard knocks like those experienced on cobbles or curbs are significantly diminished.

Perfect for everyone. With no compromises.

The height-adjustable stem and adjustable seatpost, both with flip-flop length adjustment, mean that the seat position of the Birdy can be adjusted to rider heights from 4’9″ to 6’4″ and adapt to every rider’s comfort preferences. As a result, it can be used by multiple users. The large diameter of the stem and handlebars, as well as the quadruple clamp, ensure maximum rigidity and stability. This gives the Birdy the riding characteristics of a normal bike.

A folding carrier for a folding bike.

This is where we’re particularly proud of the Birdy. The optional 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. Sheer genius.

Bring color to life in the city.

Four frame colors and seven choices of color accents make your Birdy truly unmistakable. The possible color combinations produce 28 individual designs that can be expanded even further with colored stickers featuring the Birdy logo.

The fastest route to a standstill.

The hydraulic Shimano Deore disk brakes deliver maximum performance, no matter what the weather. The large brake disks allow the braking effect to be distributed most effectively. They don’t produce rim wear and impress with their consistent braking performance.

Riese & Muller Birdy Folding bike large chainwheel

For the biggest chain reaction.

The large chainwheel with Hollowtech crank fitting minimizes the amount of power needed from the rider thanks to efficient translation. The interaction of bike and rider provides an optimized relationship between rigidity, rotational efficiency, low weight and an attractive appearance.

Riese & Muller Birdy Folding bike lighting system

A bright future.

Always ride with excellent road illumination thanks to the LED headlamps from Supernova (optional on the Birdy speed). Only daylight is brighter than their exceptional brightness. Energy is recovered via a specially developed, smooth-running hub dynamo.

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.
