Riese & Muller Load Hybrid Ready To Haul

Europe seems to have all the fun when it comes to electric-assisted utilitarian bicycles. The Load Hybrid Touring model from Riese & Muller is a perfect example. The bike won a 2013 iF Product Design Award and is claimed to handle easily even with a full load. Thanks to the full suspension, the lowstep-through and the adjustable seat position, the Load Hybrid can be used by riders of various heights. It is also a convertible. The section of the bicycle in front of the steering tube can be taken apart and stowed.
