Riese & Müller

Riese & Müller Load 75 Touring

What it's built for:

The Load 75 is Riese & Müller’s full-suspension front-loading cargo bike built to carry more, further than any bike in history. Its ingenious design allows you to carry up to 200kg of payload while still appreciating the smooth-riding benefits of a full-suspension. The Load 75 is the full-sized version making it perfect for hauling three kids and all the day’s goods (for a more compact version check out the Load 60). Top it all off with an unbeatable Bosch Cargo Line motor and a bespoke build kit and you have arguably the world’s greatest cargo bike. This Touring version uses a conventional derailleur system for a wide range of smooth-shifting gears with parts that can easily be serviced and replaced.

Why we love it:

Let’s back up for a second here. This is a full-suspension cargo bike, that’s crazy! Very few bicycles in the world are truly unique and the Load from R&M is one of them. It takes some seriously clever engineering to pull this off and the results show. This bike rides naturally, and smoothly even when fully laden and having your load fully suspended actually makes for a safer ride as well. This is the ideal front loader for a family on the move.

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.
