I ordered my Charge3 from Cit E Cycle at the end of Aug. The original build date was for the end of October. Now today I see that the Charge3 is being built this week! Very exciting!

Einstraus,

I got my Charger3 2 weeks ago. Let me tell you, the wait is well worth it. It is just pure pleasure to ride. Hang in there.

Ordered my Vario HS Charger 3 yesterday, trying to negotiate free or discounted airfreight, so I can receive sooner rather than later...
Looking forward to this SUV.

She is a beauty. Are you aware of the supplemental Abus chain that plugs into the frame lock that came on your bike? It makes the frame lock way more secure as you can then attach it to a pole with a hardened chain. Here is a LINK

Also, if you are not already a member, please consider joining the Riese & Muller Facebook group. It is an international group of R&M owners and those interested in the bikes. https://www.facebook.com/groups/rieseandmuller

May your great new ride give you many miles and many smiles.

I just heard the BC provincial government is going to drop the 7% sales tax on e-bikes if they get a majority government. The 5% federal tax still applies and there are no taxes on bicycles. With an expensive R&M that a significant savings. I ordered a 2021 Mulitcharger Mixte and hoping this applies to my purchase.

Did complete the transaction or just a down payment? You could ask Citrus bikes what they think about this. Wondering if your timing will still OK so the total tax only applies once the delivery is completed. For me it’s about $641 difference.

I have paid about half if I remember correctly

It would be a nice “bonus“ but I’m not banking on it.

That looks interesting. Is that something that would also work on a SD? Where does it plug in?
