Looking at a couple of these, seriously treating ourselves! Anyone got any knowledge/experience of them?

Once sat in a pub on the hills above Dorchester with these two discussing design with Andrew Ritchie (Brompton)

I have two of the old frame Birdies, one with a derailleur and one with Rohloff


Superb engineering and well designed machines

We just took delivery of two R&M Tinkers. Absolutely stunning eBikes. Both 20” wheels but ride like a regular bike only imo better!
The Bosch motor is incredible with turbo really powerful. Take a trip to your local shop for a test ride. We rode the Charger GH too for comparison but being 5’ 6” found the Charger too high, though riding it was great as was the Tinker. Hope you enjoy your searching but try the French company Moustache too as have more size ranges


I'm a trendy consumer. Just look at my stupid phone. Pro

Looks good! I’d be interested to know how you get on with them! We’ve got Rohloffs on our current Thorne tourers, and love them. Have you gone for the carbon belt option? We’re looking at the Delite GT

Several thousand, are you getting them to celebrate your 21st birthday or are you a bit older?
Seriously, I would be dead scared they might be stolen, or even just damaged

So they should last 35 years say 200 000 miles, is there a service plan, what do tyres cost?
