    not long back from York, https://www.electricbikesales.co.uk/ went to try a riese and muller stepthrough for Karon....as the Haibike that I got for her back in Jan .. she just was not comfortable and was not really enjoying her riding. despite getting the small xs model.
    she loved the Riese & Muller Nevo https://www.r-m.de/en-gb/models/nevo-gt/ it was so much better for her ...also come`s in 26 wheel which is a plus, to dam wet for a test run but going back in the new year for that, just need to choose between cassette & derailleur and chain .. which I am used to (In case of problems on the road) or the Nuvinci a belt drive

    I have what is now the previous model of the Charger.

    Riese and Muller bikes are nicely made, very sturdy, but fairly heavy even for an ebike.

    Most of the components are good quality, albeit they know how to charge for them.

    I fancied an ebike with a Rohloff hub, so it was either Riese and Muller or build my own.

    Price wasn't too sore by the time I'd screwed a decent discount from the supplier.

    Well, if a job's worth doing.

    I see you are getting electronic shifting on the Rohloff bike.

    That may be worth having, given that the twin cable twist shift is a bit clunky.

    Looking at the pics online, you may be getting Rock Razor tyres, which I did.

    Strange choice, a cross-country mountain bike tyre which seems to me to be too light for such a heavy bike.

    After a handful of punctures I replaced mine with Schwalbe Moto-X - the 2.4" size sits nicely on the bike.

    More robust than the Rock Razors, and the shallow trekking tread is more suitable for my use.

    Riese and Muller were fitting Moto-X tyres to some bikes at the factory, so you can never be sure what will turn up.
