    Buying an E Bike : Riese & Muller Super Delite with Rohloff

    Glad you found the review useful, a couple of points that have arisen, our very helpful bike dealer Edemo carried out a service and we discussed the charging port.

    Retirement gift to self? Superdelite! Some questions…

    At a shade under 5’10” and 90kg with approx 31” inside leg, I find a small frame Super Delite GX with fox suspension just fine I understand the 2cm increase in height is from the GX option with IncreSed 140mm travel from 100mm travel. The Fox suspension in itself does not lift the bike...

    Buying an E Bike : Riese & Muller Super Delite with Rohloff

    @Polivios Good choice, interesting the option for the 1125w. A few pictures of the phone setup etc, works great. The roll top paniers are good, very easy to fit and not a problem to take off and put back on at your destination. ( additional parts are supplied to fit smaller diameter paneer...

    Riese & Müller : Reliability & Support

    Re the Rohloff failure video, I believe the guys thought that a burr has caused his problem is incorrect, looks more like a bearing/seal shield has had an 'event' .. it might have been on assembly as he speculates.

    Suggestions for getting ready

    I’d just wait and ride the real bike, it’s a lot more fun and the flexibility of the assistance levels are such that by using a higher assistance rate to start with and over time your fitness will improve and you can lower the assist levels. Enjoy your new bike !
