Are you wanting to carry your Riese and Muller New Charger on the roof or on a hitch mount bike rack? Generally speaking loading an electric bike on the roof is a daunting task considering the weight. I do strongly recommend a hitch mount rack but I need to know if your vehicle has a trailer hitch now or not. If it does, is the opening 1-1/4 inches wide or 2 inches wide? And if it doesn't have a hitch what is the year, make, and model of the vehicle?

We have some excellent options to carry your Riese and Muller New Charge bike using a 2 inch trailer hitch. The most popular option and what I would use is the Hollywood Racks Sport Rider for e-bikes # HLY84FR.

This rack fits 2 inch hitches only and has a capacity of 80 pounds per bike. The center hooks gently but firmly hold the bikes at the frame so you can have peace of mind that the bikes are safe. This version of the rack accepts bike tires up to 5 inches wide.

If you need to carry just 1 bike then the RockyMounts MonoRail Solo, # RKY10007, is a great option. It can handle a bike up to 60 pounds and holds the bike at the wheels only. If a bike has fenders though it is not a good fit for this rack.

I have linked a video on the MonoRail Solo for you and I have included a link to all of the platform style racks for electric bikes.
