An embedded part of my life in old age

Have now had my Milan cruiser for two years and this week completed a milestone marking up 10000 klms with the only repairs being 2 sets of tyres and brake pads.Given that I will be 80 years old next year with a bad knee I look forward to my 20 klm almost daily ride depending on weather conditions.I rely heavily on battery assist on hills and windy days and still after daily charges retains max power.Also have a fold up model that I take in our caravan.Highly recommended. Show details

Leitner eBike is fantastic!! And the company has great service

The Leitner Milan eBike is great. Fantastic bike with great features. And Leitner has great service. We are in the US, which they no longer serve, but they were very helpful with resolving our battery issue.

Great Bike

I have been riding a bike since I was 8 (now 78) I bought my Leitner Milan bike late 2021. I have had no trouble adapting to an electric bike, and have found the assistance that it gives me has taken all the pressure of my knees. I can not fault it, and can look forward to many more years of riding. My husband is now buying the Venice cruiser. Show details

Love my Milan

Extremely comfortable bike to ride and I love using the throttle as well as the pedal assist. One small issue I have is that the battery only has two lights to check the battery life. I recently rode 64kms with friends and when the first light went out I was concerned I would not have enough battery to get me the full distance. Other ebikes on this trip had 6 indicator lights and a flashing light when battery was nearing exhaustion. The battery did make it to the end of the trip but it was an anxious ride for me.
That said I would not swap my Milan for any other bike but will perhaps plan bit shorter rides.

What a bike great fun and excercise

I purchased 2 bikes last year for my wife and myself and we have clocked over 800 kms each, the bikes are still like brand new with the powerful battery performing better than advertised.
The sales and after sales assitance is 10 out of 10 which gives me total confidence on these bikes.
Truly love this bike

Great after sales service

I own a bike shop and recently had a person bring a Leitner E bike into the shop with a problem with the light at the front of the bike, I rang the Leitner people to get advice on how to fix the problem and the person I was transferred to was very helpful in diagnosing the problem and guided me through the repair.
Great after sales service .

Excellent Customer & Post Sales Service

The back mudguard on my new Milan Step-Through had been damaged in transit. A quick phone call to Alex at Leitner and my new mudguard arrived the next business day. Love the excellent customer service and the quality of the bike. Show details

Just what we were looking for

My wife and I are retired and have been looking for good quality and cost effective electric bikes. The Leitner bikes are great quality easy to ride and operate. Also the staff are very reliable and always in touch.
Try one out, you will be happy.

Back riding again

At 86 years old, I was starting to get breathless keeping up with my much younger friends on my normal push-bike. Now with a little effort from this excellent Leitner 24" Milan step through, I feel on top of the world again, whilst riding with my friends, and in fact, in front of them and not always behind as before. Show details

Love this e-bike!

After a very through study of all e-bike options and prices, I selected the step thru Cruiser. I have over 400 miles on it and can not say anything about this bike I don’t like. Well, maybe if it were a little lighter! It has allowed an 82 year old man to ride again! Show details

Questions & Answers

Jayne S.
Jayne S. · Milan 10Ah

I was most interested to read a comment about the length of the pedal crank on the 24" Milan cruiser being too long, and would definitely agree, it is!

I am 5'4" and have come off a couple of times when the inside pedal hit the ground, particularly on corners. An electric bike is very different to a regular bike where the inner crank is normally in the up position on corners, whereas if you are gliding on an ebike the pedal isn't necessarily in this position.

On researching pedal cranks, I found information for people shorter than 1.65 m (5’5″), cranks no longer than 160 mm are generally recommended. My Milan Cruiser 24" has pedal cranks which measure 200mm and only have a ground clearance of 40mm which is very dangerous.

I love this bike but it is extremely hazardous for this reason. I will be investigating to replace the cranks for much shorter ones, as my bike is out of warranty.

I have attempted to follow the instruction to unlock the throttle for off rd use however there are no two grey wires connected on the control box. Control box is Ex factory 2021. Please advise is it possible to unlock on the display? Or otherwise? Thanks
