Versatile Recumbent Bike for Travel, Tour & Everyday Rides
Your Streetmachine Gte is as versatile as the way from Paris to Bangkok, from NY to LA. The plan for your next cycling adventure is already on your mind? This recumbent is your faithful companion, designed and built to offer the highest standards of comfort and sophistication. And it has a whole host of features that set it apart from other bikes of its type. A Streetmachine Gte does exactly what you want it to do with the minimum of input. It practically rides itself, leaving you free to concentrate on the road ahead, or just to relax and enjoy the scenery.
For the Streetmachine Gte we offer a system of reliable components and accessories, which we have developed for the most demanding everyday use.
Keep an eye on things. The Streetmachine Gte is our recumbent bike with the highest sitting position. Sitting at a hand’s width above most road users, you have a good view trough car windows in city traffic.
The Streetmachine Gte is a real treat with relaxing comfort. The full suspension gives you safety, as control and road grip are improved. With a good suspension, you can ride faster. So even a tour on gravel roads can become a pleasure.
Important: The quality of a cycle’s suspension becomes particularly clear when carrying a great deal of luggage or riding on hills. The No-Squat suspension design of the Streetmachine Gte offers complete comfort with no performance loss. The combination of a very stiff rear frame triangle with the sophisticated positioning of the swing arm pivot point, the large ball-bearing chain idler, and the hydraulically damped rear shock effectively prevent compression due to driving forces and unpleasant pedal rebound. You can accelerate powerfully, even on the mountain slopes.

Streetmachine Gte Frequently Asked Questions
The Streetmachine Gte will be built in most cases withUnder Seat Steering, which possible even if an e-assist system is installed. When using an ErgoMesh mesh seat, an extra wide handlebar is used. It is possible to retrofit a tiller style Above Seat Steering, but an Aero Handlebar (to the front) is not compatible with the frame design.
When you take a extensive test ride at your specialist dealer, check whether you can comfortably and safely get one or both feet on the ground with the selected seat model, as is necessary for example when stopping at a traffic light. Alternatively, try the BodyLink hard-shell seat with a height of 63 cm (25″)
System weight means the weight of rider + luggage + bike (if applicable incl. motor). The payload refers to driver + luggage. In practical terms, this means that if you use an engine in your Streetmachine Gte, you have to subtract its weight from the possible payload.
In our concept, the specialist trade is the central sales pillar. Our selected and trained specialist dealers can advise you in detail. Above all, however, they offer a promptly available service locally, which we cannot provide within the framework of our manufactory with some production processes planned for the long term. For these reasons we also do not sell directly to the customer at the factory.
