When will the E fat bike be available again? Chris.

I am just a rider Chris, so I cannot answer that question. You will need to contact Leitner.

I would like to add though that COVID-19 created a unique situation for a week here in Tas where the pinnacle road from Ferntree to the top of Mt Wellington was open only for walkers and bike riders. So I got to try out the fat bike on a 15 km return ride to the top. In total it was 800 m of climb requiring 2 or 3 (out of 5) pedal assist. Returned with 75% battery power remaining.

Is it legal to ride on the road if battery not activated or removed and how hard is it to pedal with no battery assist

Steve

Yea it's just a bicycle if you take the battery off but very hard to pedal without pedal assistance

An interesting question Ocker L. You could also argue that if you use the the peddle assist on 1 or 2 out of 5, you are not utilizing sufficient power to make use of the excess power available on this model. If you ride carefully and don't draw attention to yourself, why would a police officer even bother looking into it. If there is a bike track near the road, use it.

If you are mainly going to use the bike on the road, you may as well save yourself $500 and buy the next model down. Here in Tassie we have lots of hills and there are lots of off-road places to ride, so the fat bike suits my usage.

Which ever model you go with I would recommend buying a 'platform car rack' (eg Buzzrack). They cost $500 to $800 but worth it if you are carting your bike around a fair bit. The good ones tilt so that you can still access your rear door on an SUV.

Cheers
Ian

Why is it unsuitable for riding on the road or bike tracks is it only a legal issue

Leitner
Leitner   DM   

Hi Brian, Thanks for your question. And yes you are correct, it is purely a legal issue. This is due to the motor being twice as powerful as the legal 250w limit and also as it has the capability to go 32kph without any pedal assistance.

Hope this helps and thank you for your interest in our fantastic eBikes

Kind Regards

Would you recommend an e-bike to do 25 km distance?
Would it struggle up steep roads?
