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.
