The bike that almost made Tom sell his van — Riese & Müller e-cargo bike


60 miles of turbo-assisted range, 60kg of carrying capacity and no worries about traffic jams

It’s rare that a technical editor at BikeRadar actually buys a bike because there’s always something ‘new’ to try out. But the Riese & Müller Multicharger Vario has changed Tom’s mind. With a large carrying capacity and 1,000Wh of battery capacity, this electric cargo bike made a big impact on Tom.


It takes a pretty committed cyclist to ditch their vehicle for general day-to-day duties in a hilly city such as Bristol. Tom would be the first to admit that he’s a little lazy when it comes to weekly shops, carting test bikes around and trips to his lock-up where he’s restoring a dilapidated classic car.

The Multicharger changed all that though. No longer has he been jumping in his van to cross the town, carry shopping or spare parts for his car — even lugging a couple of car wheels 4 miles across town at one point!.

Tom’s now convinced that e-cargo bikes are the future of urban transportation. Do you agree? Let us know in the comments!
