Brilliant , easy to ride, easy to assemble

Purchased electric bike on line with Leitner and process was simple. Bike arrived approximately 10 days later, delivery was made easy with the tracking system. Bike was very well packaged and partly assembled, full assembly took about 30 minutes then it was off for a ride on my pedal assist bike and wow was this easy, up into gear then up another gear and slowly pedal cruising along at 27 Klm's enjoying all the sites with minimal effort. Really happy with my purchase and looking forward to many long rides on my Leitner Cruiser. Show details

Excellent Bike, excellent customer service

Perfect for someone new to ebikes but is looking for something a little sturdier and solid that the foldable models. I've found this bike reliable and fun to ride. I use it 3 to 4 times for riding to work and 6 months later I'm still very happy with my purchase. Show details

Awesome Comfortable Bike

I have done about 1500km on my Leitner Berlin and it is a great bike. The seat and riding position are perfect for commuting. The rack, lights, mud guards and thick tube inclusions are so useful and something you then don't have to worry about. The build quality is good my daughter has been riding it and does give it a good hammering but it still looks in good condition. Brakes are good. Show details

Leitner Berlin ebike six years on

Six years ago I wrote a review on the Leitner Berlin and Milan e-bikes. Six years and 35,000kms per bike later I can report that both are still running well with minimal issues thanks to regular maintenance by myself. For the most part, tyres, brake pads and batteries are all that have been replaced which is normal.

On the Milan 24” step through the motor was replaced after three years. Noisy from the start I suspect it was potentially faulty on delivery. The planetary gears failed first then the motor ceased a year later getting noisier as time passed. Since then the bike has performed flawlessly. Both are ridden every day for up to two hours on very hilly terrain.

These bikes are excellent value for money as the above review suggests. Show details

Quality build and great after sales service

Recently took delivery of a Berlin model for myself and a Libelle E Bike for my wife.
Relatively easy to complete assembly and make roadworthy. Both bikes are solidly manufactured and we look forward to years of riding enjoyment.
After sales service was noteworthy as I had an issue with one of the batteries which appeared to not be fully charging. Show details

Sad and Disappointed

A bit disappointed. Set up was easy enough. I feel as though the quality of the bike is cheap and ‘tacky’. Battery life is fine, lasted a couple days before having to charge again. Would suit an older couple perhaps, not what I was expecting. Very expensive for the quality, being a student this was suppose to be my only form of transportation. Not value for the money I paid. I was weighing up between this brand and an Aventon bike, I deeply regret my decision of going with Leitner. Show details

Has been a Wonderful Bike

Bought mine three years ago. Easy to assemble, (other than a bit of trouble getting the brakes aligned properly) and like that it came with fenders, a headlight, and a rear rack. Good power, good distance even though I am 275 pounds and have saddlebags on the back. After 1500 plus miles still runs without a hitch. Just wish they still sold them in the US. Show details

Makes riding so much fun!!

Seamless order and delivery. Bikes are well made and very stylish, we get comments all the time like “great looking bike”. We ordered 2, one arrived with a bent hanger so the gears wouldn’t change correctly. Replacement hanger was sent the day after I emailed and when this didn’t quite fix the gear change we were offered a gear tune at our local bike mechanic, all complimentary. The bike is now absolutely perfect.
We are riding absolutely everywhere, they’re so comfortable and easy with power assist up the hills or into the wind. Cannot fault the bikes or the customer service. Show details

Leitner Step-Over Ebike Berlin Cruiser

The Leitner 26'' Step-Over Ebike Berlin Cruiser are very good product and the bike itself last really long time , when you use the bike every day the battery only lasts 4 1/2 half years , plus I wish there were more bike shops in Adelaide that would repair Leitner Ebikes

If I could give this bike 10 stars, I would

Easy to put together, reliable, comfortable, easy to maintain, goes as advertised, I couldn't be happier. I take a regular daily 33 klm trip to work, recharge the battery at work, then return home. The best! Show details

Questions & Answers

Phil
Phil · Berlin

I’m thinking of selling my 8 months old Leitner Berlin because I don’t feel safe on it. I have fallen off 3 times. The geometry feels wrong. The distance between seat stem and handle bars is too short in my opinion. Are there different types of handlebars available.

Hi Leitner or fellow riders...
The range on my Leitner bike has dropped to 14km from a previous range of 40km. The battery will suddenly cut out when under load, e.g. up hill or acceleration. There is no warning of the failure, just an almost instant drop from full charge to dead.
Background data. Bike and battery are 20 months old. The bike has travelled 3700km, 19mAH battery and I love it.
My questions are
1. Is the battery safe.
2. Is the problem battery or power management system.
3. Can the existing battery be repaired
4. Who can fix it?
Best regards
John
