Riese & Müller

Riese & Müller Delite GT Vario

What it's built for:

The Delite from Reise & Müller was built to redefine both mountain bikes and commuters. It is a full-suspension that can easily do double duty cruising the pavement and heading off to explore backwoods trails. Front and rear suspension keep it riding incredibly smoothly while a full-suite of commuter-friendly standard accessories keep you riding in style. If you’re looking for a bike this great but with double the range be sure to check out the Superdelite. This Vario version uses an R&M specific Enviolo infinite-shift internal-hub gearing system that provides a wide range with no conventional “gears”; the chain is then replaced with an ultra-low maintenance belt for hassle-free riding.

Why we love it:

Before electric bikes, the Superdelite couldn’t have existed, full-suspension bikes were nice to ride but they weren’t practical for city commuting. No longer. Have your cake and eat it too with this unbelievable all-rounder. Clever engineering allowed R&M to even add fenders and a suspended cargo rack meaning there are truly no compromises on this one-of-a-kind bicycle.

Though we’re a bike shop that sells, builds and fixes bicycles, they’re really just the means to an end; albeit a beautifully designed means to an idyllic end. Our job most importantly is to encourage as many people as we can to get out and ride for transport and enjoyment. We'd love to make riding a bike as commonplace as your morning cup of coffee, which by the way is our other obsession.

Bicycle Junction is situated at 1 Marion St, Te Aro, Wellington.
