Wow - I'm hooked
The ordering process was simple, delivery was fast and efficient. Assembling the bike was straightforward with no problems at all. I could wait for the weather to clear up and then off I went. This bike was perfect. I didn't want to stop riding it. Now I'm looking to buy some more for my family members. I cannot recommend Leitner highly enough based on my experience with this Electric Fat Bike.
Leitner E Fat Bike, Fantastic Value
I am still over the moon with just how good this fat bike it is to use off road. I had it couriered to Tassie and it was dead easy to assemble. I regularly use it for 30k rides with lots of hills and have done 700km without a hitch.

This is the second one I have purchased as my first one was stolen.so that says it all about how much I like this bike.it is a mish mash of high quality components so spare parts shouldn't be a problem.i have 720 km on the Speedo and it's still as good as new minus a few scratches and worn tyres.the main thing with this bike is that it's great fun.i just hope you don't mind people asking questions everywhere you go because it's a real head turner.cheers.steve!
Great Service, Excellent Quality Bike!
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Ordering was easy, delivery was FAST! Hunter Freight picked up the bike from Melbourne on Tuesday and the bike was delivered to me in Sydney At midday on Wednesday!
The packaging of the bike was excellent with not a scratch or mark present and Assembly was easy, only taking about 20 minutes.
Build quality of the bike is EXCELLENT! Way beyond what I expected fro the money. I was half expecting a decent quality Chinese build of bike, but if this is made in China they sure have a damn good factory! I a...m fussy when it comes to quality and eye for detail and I can’t fault a thing. Everything was adjusted and worked perfectly straight from the box. The tyres were even pumped up enough to go for a ride to the servo if you didn’t have a pump to adjust them correctly Now for the best bit. This bike FLIES! 32kmh? I don’t think so, try more like 40 on the flat without pedalling and 50 down hill with some pedalling. Going up hill it is great! It will climb hills without effort and never dropped below 25kmh. When cruising I find even the lowest pedal assist too much as it accelerates so fast that you have to stop pedalling all the time to slow down. So personally I have found that I prefer to set pedal assist to 0 and just use a tiny bit of throttle to cruise at the speed I want while I pedal at the correct rate.

Exceeded my expectations ;-)
I purchased this bike for training and fitness. I am a 'older' rider and have knee osteo arthritis. I was already riding a Mountain Bike, and was finding that longer rides on the my 'normal' bike were starting to aggravate the knee.
I find the best part of the Fat Bike is that rides are simply much more enjoyable. As they are more fun, I find myself doing more rides, over longer distances.
Normally, i would start to feel fatigued towards the end of the ride, now i enjoy the whole ride, as the assistance of the motor means return trips are no...

This is the ebike I've been waiting for
This is a wonderful piece of equipment, I've been on grass, sand, tarmac, hills, it's all good. Plenty of torque, the controls are straightforward, assembly was easy, the controls for gears and throttle were exactly the same as my previous ebike, Was able to put some air in the tyres, check the brakes and take it out for a blast (it was fantastic ). A friend rode it yesterday and he was grinning like Daniel Ricciardo, so I guess I must look similar. Thanks for an awesome product.
Questions & Answers
Im a 53 year old woman who would like to get into cycling, mainly to work to save costs on parking. I have a motorbike, which I do love, but I am having trouble fining off road parking at work (most of the car parks don't accept motorbikes - which is weird right), and thought it was time I try cycling instead. Also, my son gets worried about me on the motorbike. I thought the Fat Bike might give me some options to also look into off road riding.
I am 157cm tall. Wondering if this would suit my needs.
Does anyone know the downside of the fat tyres? E.g. are they harder to peddle without power assist?
Any advice appreciated.
I have no trouble pedalling the fat tyres either way but why not use pedal assist if you buy it.
I am 177cm tall and the Fat Bike works for me but at 157 you might try to measure up with a real bike. At 177 I have the seat at its lowest point. Hope this helps Philip
Thanks for your message.
The minimum recommended rider height for the Fat Bike is around 165cm (5'5"). You can see the dimensions of the Fat Bike on our website to see if this will be suitable as everyone is built differently. We do suggest you to also check out our range of bikes to see which one is more suitable for you. The Fat Bike is generally a bit heavier than other range and will be slightly more difficult to ride without power assistance compared to other range due to the weight of the bike.
Hope this helps. If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact our friendly customer service team on 1300 856 725 or via email at email@example.com . Thank you and we look forward to hearing from you.
I have a basic Leitner entry level bike with an upgraded battery which I order upon purchase. I think I may have an issue. The bicycle is nearly impossible to pedal without pedal assist (almost seems like brakes are being applied) and doesn't seem to have much, if any, additional power in the lowest mode, but is fine with the second and third levels of power. This problem seemed to have occured after about a year of owning the bike. Would a service fix this - would I ask the service people to look for anything in particular? I'm happy to provide my email and phone number.
In additon to my previous question - it also seems harder to walk and push than it should be. I didn't think to turn the key off (the battery was low and the power surges too sporadic to be able to cycle at all). Does having the key off or on affect pedalling with power modes being off?
t sounds like something basis isn't right. Lift the front wheel off the ground and try turning it. Does it spin easily?. Repeat with the rear wheel. If either wheel doesn't spin easily there is a problem that might be easily fixed with a service.
Hi, I recently purchased a Leitner Fat bike, are there any mudgards, front and back, that fit the bike ?
I am just a customer like you so this is really a question for the Leitner people. That said, I would say 'not likely' as the fat bike is designed for off road use where you get down and get dirty. I've gone past the 1000km on my fat bike down her in Tassie and have not found it an issue.
