Service and Replacement parts

I called Leitner regarding my controller as after 1 year my bike stopped working with an error 21 due to the controller and I was very happy with the level of customer service provided they were very helpful, had quick communication and sent out my replacement item very quickly arriving within 3 days. Overall very happy with the service!

Great when they work

I've had my Berlin cruiser for five years, its a great bike when it works.

I purchased a new battery a couple of months ago, it probably has 50 kilometres on it and then the bike stopped working.

I contacted Leitner and the guys suggested it was the controller, so they sent me a new controller (non refundable), that didn't work, so they sent me a new monitor (non refundable), that didn't work.

They suggested another part, however I'm over playing this game and the bike is headed for the tip.

Great bike when it works, but you are on you own when it breaks down. Show details

folding bikes step through models

These are perfect for travelling, we fold them both up and they fit very well in the back of our Duel Cab DMAX with our Engel fridge freezer and Camp ovens for when we go travelling with our Caravan, highly recommend Show details

Misled by the reviews here

I have to be honest, I think most of the Leitner reviews here are fake. I bought this bike because all of the Leitner bikes have such high reviews here. The bike itself is average I would say. There is very little suspension on the bike so it is quite a rough ride. Also the seat wont tighten, it seems to be broken, so it moves like a see-saw when I ride it. It has given me a lot of lower back pain when using it due to the suspension issue. I wouldn't recommend it overall. Show details

This is perfect. The best folding bike

I had this bike for 4 years and only sold it to buy another Leitner. My Libelle went everywhere with me. It's easy to fold, easy to ride, zooms up hills, with some ebike don't, and she never let me down. The new owner loves it. Show details

Fantastic quality, Ease of operation

My wife and I just bought 2 Leitner Electric Folding bikes. 1 Labelle and 1 Tyrol. We upgraded to the 14.4 V battery ( just in case )..... These bikes are fantastic, they have to be the best value E Bikes in Australia. Very well made and so far they seem to be very robust. Looking forward to many hours of E Biking...... Max and Fiona. Show details

Super eBike!

Love this great little eBike. Easy to ride. I still want to burn calories when I ride so I use the throttle only going up hills. Good advice from Leitner however I wasn't sure which bike I would like so I posted on FB as a member of our community residents group and I asked if anyone had a Leitner bike. A member offered to show us their bikes and give us a bit of info on assembly and use. Great quality product and it doesn't break the bank.
Very easy to assemble and like everything a bit of practice is key. I'm 69 and riding everywhere. My husband is 74 and has the SuperT and loves it. Go buy one! Show details

So far so good

Our bikes arrived in Perth WA after just 12 days. Very easy to put together only took me about 45 mins for both bikes. Tested them in the rear of our Honda CRV had to fold down one seat as my bike the Tirol is slightly longer in the frame than my wifes Libelle. Very happy with them so far just getting our riding legs on our new Leitner ebikes.
PS: several friends I am sure will be ordering, they are well built bikes and neat finish.

Questions & Answers

Hi I have just brought a like new 20inch folding Leitner bike with the 16amp battery it's 2.5years old , on flat ground it seems ok but the second I hit the slightest incline the motor cuts out and comes on for like a second here and there and it's crap I have to pedal like mad but sometimes when it works it just cruises up it with ease . It seems like it's just cutting in and out on inclines and makes it hard to ride , is this a common problem?? Help

We have had no problems with our Leitners....sounds like it needs a service and possibly a new battery

I love my new Libelle bike ..it’s totally amazing.. I am just wondering as I ride the speedometer calculates the kms done.. When I ride again it stays at what I was last on and continues to add. Is there a way to start at 0 again or is like a car speedometer?

Hi Gail, You can't reset the odometer, but you can change to the 'trip meter' mode. For instructions check your manual, or email us at sales@leitner.com.au and we will be happy to assist. Thanks!

I have just bought a second hand Leitner Libelle fold up bike, which is the exact bike I have been looking for.
I know this is a silly question, but am wondering what the instructions are to to start the peddle assist and throttle. I have used it once with the peddle assist but don’t actually know how I did it. I can’t find it in the manual.

Turn on power (battery) push in red button. Next to it is throttle, turn slowly. Bike should move. Will only travell at 6km or walking pace.
