Start Your Build


  • Made for you in Germany: Riese & Müller assembles each bike in their factory in Weiterstadt, Germany to your specifications. This means that you can choose color options, motor style, battery, drivetrain, and accessories. The New Wheel is here to help you to design the perfect bike. Learn more.
  • Small bike, big personality: A longer wheelbase preserves the stability of a big bike. In combination with the smaller wheels and generous stepover height of the Tinker's frame, the resulting ride experience is dynamic, top-quality and unique.
  • Premium compact: One test ride on the Tinker and you realize that this bike is not like any other compact bike: comfortable thanks to plush suspension; powerful thanks to the top-of-the-line Bosch engine; and built tough with quality components. 
  • Eminently shareable: Not only can you adjust the seatpost and stem height for different riders, you can adjust the stem angle, allowing you to dial in your precise ride position - no tools necessary.
  • Oversized tires for added control: Small- wheeled bikes perform marvelously in the city when paired with high volume, high-pressure tires.  Tinker features Schwalbe Big Ben tires.
  • Racktime rear carrier comes standard: Snapit system by RackTime allows for a number of different carriers that click instantly on and off the rear rack.
  • High torque or high-speed drive: Featuring either the highest-torque Bosch CX Drive or the Bosch Performance Speed Drive which will assist you up to 28 mph.
  • A Warranty You Can Trust: Riese & Müller's warranty is backed by The New Wheel True Warranty™  and upheld by our professional service department. Includes 5-year frame coverage, 2 years for electronics, and 2 years for all other components (some exceptions apply).

Our Take

All Riese & Muller bikes are assembled in their factory in Weiterstadt Germany. This means you can customize virtually everything about the bike, including color, drivetrain, motor and battery capacity.


Riese & Muller is all about performance, and nothing changes on the compact Tinker.  The small frame design belies its big bike comfort and ride feel. But small has it's advantages, as this bike can be easily tucked away on a train, in the back of a car, or in the office.

The Tinker is also great for an extremely diverse range of uses and riders: it can be your fast and fun speed bike, your nimble urban commuter or town bike, or even your weekend adventurer with saddle bags loaded. 

Opt for the low-maintenance belt drive, or crisp shifting Deore derailleur on the high speed model.

Motors and drivetrains

On the Tinker, your drivetrain choice is linked to your motor option.

Choose between the highest-torque Bosch CX Drive paired with a Nuvinci drivetrain, or a Bosch Performance Speed Drive  motor paired with a Shimano Deore drivetrain.


A good fit

Truly a one-size-fits-all bike thanks to smart geometry and an innovative stem that adjusts both up and down, and forward and back.

Who is the Tinker for? 

If you're looking for a speedy commuter or urban climber, Tinker has you covered.  If you are looking for a little less bulk but no less capability, Tinker will delight you. If you're trying to carry a family, Tinker won't necessarily fit the bill perfectly (consider the GSD from Tern instead).

Last but not least, the Tinker is offered in some great colors - a metallic blue, a metallic orange, and of course, a simple, understated matte black.
