Stress relief and having fun at 59

In October 2022, I had the opportunity to ride an E-bike while on holiday at Port Stephens NSW. So much fun. On returning home, I researched E-bikes and purchased a Leitner Tirol bike. Absolutely loving it. The Leitner Tirol manages hilly areas really well and I'm thrilled I don't need to get off the bike to walk up the hills. Assembly was completed by using both the Leitner user guide provided and a youtube link I found online by Sofwan Sandy. "I could do this!! " The youtube video made assembly appear less daunting and was the deciding factor to purchase the Tirol. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BFf44ysjJmk Show details

Unacceptable quality for this price

As a bike itself, all the joints were kind of loose making you lose a lot of energy while riding. This problem becomes very obvious when riding uphill with low power settings.

Secondly, with the poor gear range and energy transfer, it is almost not ridable without the help of the motor and battery. If you are dreaming about "maybe I can ride this bike without pedal assist", then don't buy this bike.

Other problems are obvious welding marks all around the bike, control box fault after only 200km normal ride to work, loose spokes......I can't believe this is a 18k-worth bike's quality, go get yourself some other E-bike. 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: I have also left a review on the Libelle bike. Show details

Outstanding Bike

I love this bike. My arthritis had stopped me riding as far or as frequently. My Triol has now changed this. It is superbly engineered and beautiful to ride. It is exceptional value for money. I thoroughly recommend this bike. Show details

Bought as a present, been very good

Our 80 year old father had been banned from riding his petrol powered pushbike around our small community.
So we bought him a LEFB, and it's been brilliant!
Recently the charger failed and the backup service was fantastic!

It took a while but

Leitner folks have been wonderfully supportive during some trying times when my bike went missing with the freight company. I finally unpacked it last night and in under two hours I was away.

I’m impressed with so many things about the bike; did an 8km trip this morning sitting on 17km/h with battery support at 15km/hr. Really helped me get back into bike riding, something I haven’t done for many years. The folding mechanism is so good; it will make transportation in our caravan so much easier. Show details

Excellent fun!

Easy to assemble straight out of the box (30 minutes), seems sturdy, battery lasts well (I got the bigger one but live in a super hilly suburb). If you are prevaricating, get one, you won't regret it. Show details

Excellent bike I’m selling my car

Really good experience I’m only going to commute with this. No good it rain but ego rides a bike in rain anyway?It is powerful enough so you don’t have to make and effort if you don’t want to. Show details

Questions & Answers

Tom
Tom · Tirol

I love my Tirol! - I know that sounds a bit weird but I don't care, it is a great bike. I have one very small complaint: the handle bars do not go down far enough, despite the range of adjustment. There is also a large amount of the handle bar pole above its housing. I know a possible answer - The profile runs the full length of the handle bar pole so it would be easy to trim the pole to an appropriate length while ensuring that there is still enough of the pole to ensure the safe length is held in its housing. Am loath to do such a thing even though cutting and re-finished the end of the aluminium pole is easily done at home because i have no doubt it would void the guarantee. If someone knew of another way to fix this, I would very much appreciate it.

Hi Tom, Great to hear that you're loving your bike!

I would recommend that you discuss your handlebar height with your local bike shop. They should be able to advise you on how best to accomplish this.

Has anyone been able to put a baby seat on the foldable versions? We are after a foldable for camping but have a 9 month old.

Hi John, I would have a chat with your local bike shop about what is available in baby seats that will suit a 20" bike. They would have the knowledge and expertise about suitability and safety for this.
