Rene Herse Rinko Nut


With a Hirose-style split rear fender, a Rinko nut is used on the tongue that connects the fender, so that the two halves can be secured by an M5 bolt.

Rinko is the Japanese system of packing bikes for train travel. It’s an elegant way of converting your bike into a small package that you sling over your shoulder and carry on trains, subways, buses or in other crowded places. It is very satisfying to ride up to a train station, and 15 minutes later, having reduced your bike to a neat, small package. One advantage of Rinko is that the bike doesn’t need couplers or other parts that add cost and complexity, and compromise the ride quality. Consider a few small details when designing the frame, use a few special parts, and a standard bike can be made to Rinko.

There are many different Rinko systems, and this nut is intended for the Alps-style system, which removes the fork and part of the rear fender to reduce the bike to the smallest possible package.
