All Riese & Muller bikes are assembled in their factory in Weisenstadt Germany. This means you can customize virtually everything about the bike, including color, drivetrain, motor and battery capacity. Additionally Riese & Muller cargo bikes have many cargo bike accessories for the Packster.
Front Loaders Come of Age
Front loaders are not new, but we've been waiting for the right one to come along. Low & behold, Riese & Muller offer up 2 amazing front loaders - the ultra narrow, modular Packster and the full suspension Load.
Many people's first experience of a front loader cargo bike is that functionality is inhibited by rideability. Due to some amazing engineering, this is simply not the case with the Packster.
First of all, it is uniquely easy to get a foot over the Packster- even when loaded - thanks to a low top tube design.
Comfortable & Adjustable
A suspension seatpost on all Packster models will cushion your ride. A quick release, telescoping stem allows for a broad range of handlebar heights and ensures comfort for all sizes of riders.
What can the Packster carry?
Front loaders are the European standard for kid carrying. Why? Because parents like to see what their kids. And, front loader 'bucket' bikes make it easy to enclose children in a weather proof canopy, available as an option with the Packster.
The Packster is also particularly interesting when it comes to options for carrying stuff. The minimalist Basis Boards provide just enough platform for cargo while keeping the width of the bike as narrow as a conventional bike. Have more stuff to carry? There is an extra large Basis Box, a cover for your cargo and even a rear pannier rack to carry still more stuff.
