Good solid fun bike
Was very impressed by the build quality of this bike. Very solid. So much fun to ride. Highly recommended. Will be buying a second one so we can go for longer rides and not leave my husband behind!!
Purchased in July 2021 at Leitner Online store for $1,495.00.
Great bike: Wonderful customer service
Love my bike!
So much so that I bought another Leitner bike for my partner.
Superb customer service.
Prompt and helpful. Would totally recommend if you are considering buying a great electric bike.
Purchased in July 2020.
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.
Purchased in May 2020 at Leitner Physical store.
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.

Very impressed with the Leitner organisation and particularly their customer handling processes.. as well as the two folding bikes we have purchased! Arrived in just a week into Perth from Melbourne. Very well packaged and good instructions provided as a download over the web. A 'not technical' husband and wife team managed to unpack and construct each bike in just an hour.
We chose a Tirol and Libelle model because when folded they easily slip into the back of the Pajero Sports. These bikes will make such a difference when we go camping and we...

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.

I read the reviews... and bought one. I wanted a bike that I could ride around Brisbane (Hot, Humid & Hilly) with my 2 y.o. in a baby seat. I've only had it a week or so, but been out almost everyday.
I only use the first stage pedal assist, which takes about 50% of the effort away. The range is OK... after 23 KM with me (70kg) and my son (13kg) there were still 2 bars of power left. This included some hills.
It folds easily and fits in the boot of my car. It's a bit heavy (but I guess the battery and motor would be a significant contr...

My partner and I purchased a Leitner Super T and a Libelle respectively.
We live in Broome with periods of time in Perth. With the heat and humidity in Broome over the summer months it is good to be able to get to destinations without being sweaty. My partner works full time and me part time and we use the bikes to go to work and also do most of our shopping. It has substantially replaced car use and been fun to ride. I changed the seat on the Libelle and fitted and soft sprung seat which works well. Great to be able to fold the bike(s) to put in the car for the trips to Perth.
It was good to be able to negotiate on the freight as the regular freight charge is expensive. No regrets. Excellent buy.
Purchased in May 2019 at Leitner Online store.
I am very happy with my electric bike. I have been using it for already 5 months and works as the first day even in Brisbane which is a really hilly city. I had to call them for a little issue and they fixed it really quickly and kindly. 100% recommended.

Love my Leitner electric bike.
Have owned my Leitner folding electric bike for over a year now. I gave away my regular push bike as I never use it now that I have the Leitner. Easy to use, reliable and makes the hills much easier to ride up. I feel safer riding this bike compared to a regular push bike.
I ordered the bike last Wednesday night and received it on Monday morning, I assembled it and off I.
I am a very keen bike rider and recently, due to a medical condition, I have had difficulty riding my push bike. This "Leitner Tirol" model hybrid bike is everything that I need to enable me to keep riding a bike, enjoy life and keep fit. Thank you to the Leitner people for your great PRODUCT & for your great SERVICE!
Now I can ride a bike to work
I have been taking the bus and/or train to work for a long time. This adds up door to door to between 45 minutes and 1.25 hours+ depending on how reliable the public transport is at the time. Looking at the actual distance (7 km) I realised I could probably get to work quicker on a bike. The main thing that held me back was being afraid of the hills, and worrying about whether I'd actually stick to it given how much effort that would likely be.
I bought myself a Tirol so I could chuck it in the boot of my small car, and have been commuting b...ack and forth to work on it for a few weeks now. Love it. If I'm feeling like giving my legs a bit of a workout, I turn the assistance down to low or medium, and if I'm feeling lazy I put it on high. When it's on high, you can put it in a low gear then just move your feet in a pedalling motion and it'll power you right up hills, and blast you up to the full 25km/h without any effort. This has been a great purchase, and the other bike riders who I've shown the components to say that they're not top of the line, but they're not cheap either. Oh, I'm also 135kg, so was worried about the stated 120kg weight limit. I got some metal pedals so I've got a bit more strength to push on, and so far so good, and I also put a heavy lock in a pannier bag on the back. I'll update this review if I have any equipment failures further on, but so far so great. I get to work in 25 minutes, and I even get some exercise on the way if I want. So glad I bought this.
I purchased two Leitner bikes - a Berlin (26 inch wheel) and a Tirol (folding 20 inch wheel).
I believe that the motor is unchanged for both models - it hasn't been recalibrated for different sized wheels. As a result, it provides a lot more torque (ie. assistance) on the Tirol with the smaller wheels. The Tirol is also geared shorter - it is rare that I need a lower gear, but often I need a taller gear.
As a result, the Tirol provides a lot of assistance if one were unfit, say, or had a very hilly commute.
But there's no such thing as...a free lunch, and I believe the extra torque will mean shorter range than the 26 inch wheeled bikes, so consider buying the bigger battery. Also, the Tirol will fit a narrower range of body sizes (fine for me, a smaller than average male). Leitner's service was great, sending me a replacement part no questions asked when one failed, probably due to it not being fitted tightly enough.
Leitner Electric Bikes are awesome!
My partner and I purchased two folding bikes in January 2018. (1 x Tirol & 1 x Libelle).
The bikes arrived quickly and were easy to assemble.
They are compact, easy to ride and very affordable.
We have been enjoying many long rides and haven't looked back!
We highly recommend these bikes.
