Love it exceeds my expectations
I live on the side of a volcano (dormant) so steep hills long country roads including dirt roads I ride daily not long rides 20 to 30 kms. I can choose how hard I want to work with a push of a button. The bike is comfortable, easy to operate, reliable and has exceeded my expectations. Apart from where do you put a water bottle cage.

What a fantastic bike...
On delivery it was love at first sight.
My Leitner Cross X is better than my expectations.
Kitty was fantastic to deal with. She was very helpful to answer my questions prior to my payment. I was a little apprehensive to pre order, with full payment. I guess I was like an expecting father waiting for my delivery, which arrived on the date I was promised.
When I inboxed it I was taken back to the meticulous way it was packed.
I had down loaded the assembly instructions A couple of weeks prior, so I had a good idea of what to do. It comes with ...

At 76 gives me a new freedom after Knee replacement.
I thought long and hard before buying an
E-bike at 76, I purchased the Leintner Cross X E bike, it gives me a new freedom as I found my push bike was causing me more pain than pleasure after knee replacement I found the build quality to be excellent I can easily go up most Hills. I discovered there's a lot of rubbish for sale in E-bike market. Promising all sorts of warranties. I spoke to a Uber Rider who had three previous E-bikes and now has a Leintner he said it was the best E-bike he has owned.I also found the seat comfortable.

Leitner Cross X Great Bike
Well made bike that can be used for exercise or just cruising, rides great. Love riding it! One small problem is the back mud guard keeps coming loose and falls down on the rear wheel. This seems to be because the screw goes into a thread and then a nut on the inside. I was trying to do screw up when I needed to do the nut on the inside up.

Receive my Leitner Cross X last week and put the bike together (was so easy)
Tried the bike out on Saturday and found the bike worked perfect
Gears worked perfect and cruise control works like a dream, have changed the cruise speed to go faster 25 kph so easy to access the two grey wires to change
Would recommend using this company for buying ebikes

The Cross X is more and BETTER than I expected
From payment to delivery of my bike only took three days, IMPRESSIVE. Thanks to a local Ambassador, Geoff, the assembly only took close to an hour, again, IMPRESSIVE. But there are no words to describe the joy when I rode my Cross X for the first time. More than IMPRESSIVE. I am so grateful to Leitner for providing such great product. The friendly service from Jennifer, Damian and the entire team is just as IMPRESSIVE and ready to assist. Keep it guys, I will have no hesitation to recommend Leitner bikes to my family and friends. Cheers

Great durable bike!
I've had 2 issues, due to my use and the excessive strain I place it under, NOT the bike itself. It actually surpasses my handling expectations.
Sales staff have been absolutely phenomenal in helping me to repair the issues; I cannot fault their service.
Owned it almost 1 year now, still happy with its capabilities/performance, I travel 60km/day on it with two kids in a carrier attached to it, hence the excessive strain. Last year I travelled 100km/day for the last school term and it held up exceptionally, but required charging as soon as I go...

Purchased the cross x for myself and the libelle step through for my wife early june 19 assembly was very simple approx half an hour each , most comfortable bike to ride and power is unbelievable never seen anything like it just suit me , and the wife is very happy with her bike as well, at the moment we are caravaning and they are an ideal pass time and exercise.The service and after sales back up from leitner was second to none , very happy customers.

Great bike, great service and support
I loved my electric Cross X mountain bike from even before it was delivered as the service and prompt responses to queries was appreciated as I’m not really a ‘bike’ person. It was easy to assemble and after a bit of getting used to I found it fun to ride - Leitner turned the daunting steep hills of Anglesea into a pleasurable outing!
When I put the bike into a service because the rear brake wasn’t working the repair shop identified a bigger problem with the wheel itself and I had to get in touch with Leitner. Instead of the usual run around, ...they contacted the repair shop, talked it through, exchanged photos and under warranty have replaced the parts - really impressive and a reinforcement that this is a quality company. Always helpful, never patronising and I can’t recommend them highly enough. Great prices, great product, great people, great after sales service. So much so I bought another one for my partner!! Thanks Leitner.

Quality and ride is brilliant,ideal for me. Brake's and gears are fantastic and the speed it picks up even impresses my son. Oh well I think a few mates will be acquiring their own eh. Gone for the Blue. Also a the welded frame looks to handle some decent terrain. Thanks guys
Fantastic Bike 2,000 kilometers and going strong
Had this bike for nearly 12 months so far have taken it off road mountain biking had it up to 70 kilometers an hour going down hill and ride it every day for at least 15 kilometers. Love it I was hesitant at first thinking cheapest bike of them all but let me tell you this baby takes on all comers and its never let me down. Would I recommend Leitner yes their bikes are great but when it comes down to it after sales service is where it counts and Leitner like its bikes excels. I have pushed this bike to its limits and its always comes through like the thoroughbred that it is. Would I recommend a leitner bike the answer is yes if this bike can take what I give it and shine them it will do the same for you.
Surprisingly good value for money
I wanted dual suspension, but didn't want to spend more than my car is worth, so this looked like the way to go for my 10km commute to work. I was pleasantly surprised at how good it is for the money. The seat is a bit on the huge side for a cycling enthusiast, so I've swapped it to something that suits my riding style. My only other complaint is that the pedals are one sided, and it's a bit of a bother to get them the right way up, or put up with having my feet on the wrong side, so I swapped them for some MTB pedals. Very minor complaints for a really good product. Most people would be very happy with it just how it is.
Leitner E Bike
I recently just purchased the Venice cruiser and the Cross X bike from Leitner. This is mine and my wife's first ever electric bicycle. Can I just say after looking at afew different e bikes, the Leitner CrossX and Venice cruiser ticked al I'll the boxes for us. We put a child seat on the back for our daughter and we were off.
Tim from Leitner has also been amazing in helping us set up our bikes and answering all of my questions. So thank you Tim.
The bikes are so easy to ride, the pedal assist makies biking a breeze. Honestly I have not even broken a sweat yet lol. I would highly recommend Leitner to anyone.
Fantastic Bike, could not be happier!
I was looking into electric bikes for some time and as soon as i discovered LEITNER i had to get one. At such a good price, easy to put together and with great customer support. The bike is so strong and sturdy, the motor works great when you need a bit of help to get up those hills, i could not highly recommend this enough the mountain bike has great suspension a comfortable ride and lets you go anywhere. The battery has a great range and i only have to charge it once a week. Overall a great company to deal with and a even better bike!
Amazing Mountain Bike Built Quality With Great Suspension
I am still blown away at the mountain bike I got for $1239. This machine is equipped for serious off road fun!
Search Leitner Cross X on Youtube for the video review!
It arrived 3 days from order in quality packaging. This is my second Leitner bike - that's how good they are. I was shocked at the quality of suspension & paint job on these bikes. Looking at the bike online, I thought the suspension was all for show but it really has left me surprised - a smooth ride even on corrugated surfaces. Looking at the price, it's easy to question ...the quality but don't - just buy it and you will convince yourself. I was in the market for months for a quality electric bike. I was doubtful about a drum motor. I didn't think it had the pulling power I needed but these Leitners must have quality motors because in unrestricted mode, they achieve on bitumen 30 kph with light pedalling. I have a Shimano Steps but can't really tell the difference in performance. I was also shocked at the quality mud guards and tyres. You get actual off road tyres which is great! The breaks are good as well. The lights are also good! I was told that drum motors are old technology but I know individuals who have mid-drive systems and have problems later down the track! These drum motors are reliable. The only Negatives are (1) the seat is way to big for a mountain bike, (2) the tyres come close to flat so you need a pump, (3) 10 amp is not enough for off road & (4) motor resistance when used as normal bike - bigger battery will solve this issue.
Changes the way you view cycling in a very good way!
Coming from a non cycling background, I purchased one of these because of a license suspension and the need to commute. The electric assist makes the impossible possible and a cheeseburger fanatic can pedal (assisted) 40-50km in distance in 1hr30mins and not have a coronary. Build quality is great, just be sure to fully charge the battery and you'll be good as gold. Money well spent and once that off road beast comes back into stock (more power) I will be trading up for sure.
My posterior has never felt so better, the hill climbs were simply luxuriously easy, the foot to pedal was left wanting more upon our arrival, and when other family members took our bikes out for a spin, will all I can say is hey Leitner hope you got more where they came from?
Questions & Answers
Hey, I’ve had my Cross X for about 6 months now and I’ve been giving it a serious workout mainly in the inner city of Sydney without any major problems.
I really love it, I hardly drive my car at all anymore. I am 5’ 11” and weigh 100 kg and literally cruise up Albion St in Surry Hills which is long and steep. (Admittedly I struggled a bit the first time but like anything in life once practiced I worked out the best way to effectively use the gears and motor)
I have only one dilemma...... and I would appreciate some input as it’s really bugging me -
Has anyone found an effective spot for a water bottle???
It’s a real hassle carrying it in my backpack and having to completely stop to drink.
I’ve tried fitting it to a couple of different spots on the handlebars but if your pushing the bike to it’s limits it simply doesn’t work ie it gets in the way.
I realise it’s a minor issue , just hoping someone’s had more success with it than me lol.
Charlie in Chippendale.
I had the same issue with my cross X. I searched around and found one that could mount to the seat behind but was too hard to access. I eventually mounted it on the handle bars basically in the middle and it works a treat. Trick was to have a tight fitting bottle. Admittedly I may not be using my bike as hard you are but riding on gravel tracks and road it definitely works ok. Good luck. Cheers (I wish Leitner actually designed and sold one to fit correctly)
If I could upload a photo you could see what I’ve done.
I purchased a small case and strapped it to the top bar. Standard drink bottle fits in nicely...
Andy that’s an excellent idea - was it specifically designed for bikes?
Can u recommend a retailer?
Im 5ft 10 would the Leitner Cross x be ok for my size
I cant see why not. With the seat at its lowest point it is 840-850. Keep in mind these seats are thick so if you change the seat like I have it will be lower.
just another question Is it possible to fit a rear rack on the Cross X bike ?
HI I am 5ft 11 and the bike is perfect, with scope for a taller person. Not sure about a rear rack.
Just received and built my Cross X. Where do I fit the rear light?
I didn’t use the supplied rear light.
I purchased a USB charge red flashing light from EBay and fitted it to my helmet.
It is a lot more user friendly.
Hope you like your bike, I love mine.
Thanks for your message.
You can find the rear light in the small brown box. You need to install it on the seat post. Hope this helps. If you have any other questions, please contact our team at 1300 856 725 or via email at firstname.lastname@example.org for a prompt response.
