Riese & Müller (R&M) grew from a friendship between Markus Riese and Heiko Müller, who were mechanical engineering students at the Technical University of Darmstadt in Germany in the late 1980’s. They shared free time converting and optimizing bicycles from Heiko’s parents’ garage and eventually created a special full suspension folding bike in 1992 called the Birdy (still part of the R&M collection today).
From those humble beginnings, R&M have built the leading manufacturer of premium e-bikes in the world.
