Even better than I expected
After my wife bought a Leitner Berlin Cruiser I was quite impressed with the quality - so got myself one of these Fat bikes - and if I’m completely honest I feel like a kid again with the amount I’m enjoying this bike! Really good, and can definitely recommend them. Having loads of fun.

Great E Bike
Have done over 4700km in about a year on my Fat bike and it has been awesome. Does about 43kmh on full power and that gives you 20km of range. If you manage the battery with the pedal assist levels you can stretch the range to about 40km without sacrificing too much speed. Have heard the guys will be adding a longer range battery in the future which will complement this bike even further. Really impressed with the product. Pro tip buy a 2nd battery so you can have a fresh ready to go as 5hrs charging can't be avoided.

Best E-bike I have owned
My hubby and I have gone through a couple of ebikes and leitner has completely blown us away. Best purchase we have made! Comfortable and an absolute blast when riding! We always get compliments!

Awesome bikes, easy to assemble and brilliant fun to ride, couldn’t be happier… Well Done! Brought one for the wife and myself and we're rediscovering the joy of riding a bike all over again.

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.

I really LIKE this Electric Fat Mountain Bike.
I am a older rider. I also have arthritis in my knees. This bike supports my weight and is helping me to get fit. I have lost kilos and just love this bike, It is a beauty. Regards from John.

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
We bought two fat bikes. Generally nice and fun! Both seem to have rather too much pedal assist at minimum setting, so unlikely to be a fault with a single one. Assist does not seem to come on very gradually but more abruptly than it should. This makes cruising at low speed a little too exciting. Adjustable? Maybe pop off a cover and adjust a trimpot?
how far do you get out of one battery?
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 Phillip. I might go and size myself up before purchasing.
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.
