Amazing quality and so much fun!!!

published

I purchased a Libelle and my husband bought a Tirol. We were nervous buying bikes online, without test riding or even looking at them in person. But OMG I am so glad we did! We have had so much fun zipping around the streets and bike paths These bikes are so well made, come mostly assembled and are easy to fold up and chuck in the boot. I love love LOVE my bike!

HAPPY CHAPPY

published

We purchased 2 LIBELLE E BIKES from this site and have never looked back. The service was pleasant and helpful, plus there was speedy delivery (considering COVID)
As active Nomads we wanted the fold up type to take away with us.
This has worked out perfect for the back of the ute. After 200 klms, I was concerned about some movement in the handle bar area, so I made contact with Leitner.
To my surprise, they where very helpful and dealt with my issue straight away, and with a fantastic result. New part was dispatched and my local bike shop put the part in and everyone is happy.
I am so impressed with Leitner's performance, that they will always have praise from me.

Takes the pain away.

published

Always enjoyed a ride but this one just does the job perfectly.
Purchased the fold-up so I can take it away in our van, and it easily fits into the back of my car.
I like the fact that I can still peddle and get a pain in my thighs, but put that electrics on, and it is great.
Had a slight problem with the 'Twist and go' function, but with Harsha's help, easily sorted out.
I am 78, so no spring chicken, but this bike is great fun to ride.

The best service ever.

I bought my new bike and needed help assembling. Harsha spent a lot of time with me in this process. Then he put me in touch with Geoff Mills (Adelaide). This was life changing for me and my bike. Geoff came to my house twice to help and even took me on a ride to build my confidence. He answered endless questions. I love my new bike and feel even better knowing the incredible support i have with this company. Thanks again. and keep up the good work. Highly recommend.

Very happy cyclists

published

My wife & I purchased a Libelle model each . We are very happy with the quality & design.I found the 48/14 gear ratio in 6th gear a little low with 20” wheels. My wife is quite short & found the handle bars a bit of a reach but is getting used to that . I have changed the rear gear set to a 11/28 & find this works well for me

Excellent result with "after sales " problem

published

Firstly I am very happy with my Leitner folding bike, and particularly happy that my problem with the electric charger was resolved rapidly under warranty. From Express Post shipment to home in Nthn NSW was only 2 days.

Great for exercise & mobility as limited by a back problem.

published

After 3 years of good service a fault developed which local repairer did not accurately diagnose. This resulted in purchase & fitting of unnecessary (expensive) replacement parts.

Involvement of Leitner resulted in being referred to a different repairer who quickly correctly diagnosed problem. Leitner have now dispatched correct parts AT NO COST.

Very satisfied with Leitner after sales service.

Purchased in for $1,100.

Wonderful find, love my Libelle.

published

Purchased Libelle after much research, kept coming back to this bike for recreational cycling. Ordered on a Friday, very easy, delivered Tuesday. I am a middle aged women, put the bike together, rode it , after a few laps of the local school to get my head around the gear/gear changes and the introduction of the power, its a whole new world, wonderful, feel very confident and free. I did have a small tech question, Leitner came straight back, all good. Great product, fast professional service, I would highly recommend. I know I will get many hours, indeed years of enjoyment.

Details

Features:

  • Three bikes in this series: Libelle; a step-through bike, SuperT; a dual suspension bike, and Tirol; a step-over bike
  • All three bikes are folding, which means they can fold to fit into tight spaces for storage or to take onto public transport
  • The bikes offer throttles to give the bikes a boost in case you don’t feel like pedalling
  • Puncture-resistant tires designed to handle going over rough terrain
  • Samsung lithium battery cells that take about 5 hours for a full charge
  • Comes with extras, such as mudguards, chainguard, front & rear lights, rear rack, stand, bell and tool-kit (to help with assembly)
  • Available in silver, red, blue, and black colours
