We got you covered
Our tailored eBike insurance package will protect you from:

Cycle 2 Work Schemes
Power up your commute
We work with a number of cycle scheme providers to help make the purchase of your new eBike and accessories more affordable. Cycle schemes allow you to make a tax-free purchase, saving up to 47%, by paying for the eBike and accessories out of your pre-tax salary. Better still, being a salary sacrifice scheme, the payments are taken out of your salary over an extended period (usually 12 months) meaning you get to spread the costs also!
Cycle to Work schemes can be processed by emailing us at email@example.com.
Who is this bike suitable for?
Meet the Tinker Vario, an eBike of stature built for the day-to-day challenges of city life. Whether it’s commuter hold-ups on the roads, a full train or if you’re carrying heavy luggage to and from work or the shops, this compact frame withstands it all. The Tinker is designed to make your urban life easier and can be taken on public transport, carried up a few stairs or quickly stowed in the car.
The Bosch Performance Line Motor (Gen3) is neatly integrated into its compact frame, and with the foldable stem and retractable seatpost, the Tinker saves you space when you need it most.
With the Enviolo 380, continuous hub and Gates Carbon Belt Drive, the Tinker Vario provides more of a relaxed transition up through the gears, making your ride around the city a smoother experience and providing less maintenance than a typical chain.
The Tinker is there to glide through traffic, hop in and out of the shops, do deliveries, carry up the stairs and take on public transport as and when you choose. It is an eBike new-age cities have been waiting for.
About the Tinker
20" wheels, a fold-able stem and room for the seat-post to be pushed in makes the bike small enough to fit in car boots and public transport.
Not only do you get the benefits of a compact urban bike, but you get suspension and a very strong frame without any hinges that hinder ride quality.
What the expert says
‘If you are looking for a compact city bike that’s also capable for touring and even off-road then this is the bike for you. The large tyres and suspension system gives you a smooth ride and the rear rack and solid frame provides plenty of carrying capacity.’

Rides like a big bike
You don't want to miss out on stable riding behaviour and comfort? Neither do we. With its 20-inch wheels, the Tinker has riding characteristics to quickly make you forget that you’re sitting on a compact E-Bike. Thanks to the continuous Enviolo hub gear with low-maintenance belt drive, you always ride with the perfect gear ratio. Opt for the suspension seatpost option for even more comfort.
With an adjustable stem that moves forward, back, up or down, you can find your sweet spot, and adjust it easily for other riders.
Cane Creek Thudbuster
We specify all our Riese & Müller Tinker's with the suspension seat-post upgrade. It absorbs the bumps of the road, canal paths and bridleways creating a truly comfortable ride.
Transport with ease. The rear rack has a weight capacity of 25 kg, and this optional extra (£66) makes carrying your bits easy.
