What is the weight? What kind of battery and how many kms does a fully charged battery take me?
I am not sure of the weight but it is quite heavy. I have the 10 amp hour battery and ridden it locally many times and never used anywhere near the full battery, the battery should get the stated 50km in peddle assist.Hi Julie, Thanks for your message. The weight of the Libelle folding bike including the battery is around 24kg. The battery itself weighs around 3kg. There are two capacity of battery, 10Ah and 16Ah battery. the 10Ah battery will give you up to 50km in range, however, it depends on the weight of the rider, condition of the road/trip and amount of assistance you required throughout the trip. And, the 16Ah battery will give you up to 80km in range and also depends on the above factors. Hope this helps. If you have more questions, please feel free to contact us on 1300 856 725.

I am 5foit tall and my inside leg measurement from ground to crotch is 60cm. I require a folding bike. What do you suggest?
Hi Karyn, Thanks for your message. Our folding bikes are all 20inch and the minimum seat height measured from the ground to the seat is 79cm. You can further decrease this height by 2cm by cutting the seat pole which gives you around 77cm. Please check if this measurement is suitable for you as each individuals are built differently. Our Tirol Folding bike is a straight bar model. The Libelle folding bike is a step through model if you are not comfortable with lifting up your leg over the seat. Lastly, we have a Super T folding bike which is a straight bar model with dual suspension for more comfort. I hope this information helps. For further enquires, please contact is on 1300 856 725. We are more than happy to assist you in choosing the right bike for you. Thank you!
Which leitner bike gives the highest handle bars in relation to the seat ( I need to sit up straight due to back injury)?
Hi Lyn, Thanks for your message. The Super T will be what you are looking for. The minimum seat height (from ground to seat) is 79cm to 91cm and the Minimun height of the handle bar (from ground to handbar) is 105cm-117cm. I hope this helps. Thanks.
Hi Leitner, I'm about 100kg. I'd like to use it to commute to work from Northern Beaches to North Sydney (8km) but quiet hilly. I'm fit enough but don't want to do the super hard work of the the high hills every day. Would you recommend step or frame? Are there any differences besides the looks? Thanks!
Do the bikes have a hand throttle?
Yes it does. You can also mod the speed which they have an instruction but not recommended.Hi Chris, thank you for your question. Yes, it is a twist hand throttle on the right hand side of the handle-bar. The standard setting of the throttle has a top speed of about 6km/h (walking speed) which can be used to provide assistance when taking off. As Ton has stated correctly the throttle can be unlocked to go 25km/h without pedaling (not to be used on public roads - off-road only). Unlocking the throttle takes about 5 minutes and instructions are provided.Yes they have a hand throttle
how old do the battery last?
The first one last about 6mth. Second one about 9mth. Now on my third.

Could you let me know if there is someone in the Northern rivers of NSW who could assemble the bike?
Any bike shop should be able to assist in assembly. I'm on Sth coast of NSW. Good luckThanks - have the feeling bike shops wouldn't be so keen having lost a sale - but have heard of a traveling bike maintenance man so will try him
Has anyone experienced multiple broken spokes and squealing brakes with these bikes? I had that problem with another brand of cheaper bike that I bought.
Had mine 3 months with no problems. Couldn't be happier
Can I charge battery of a 700watt inverter, and how long would it take?
Hi Colin, any technical questions would be best answered by the team at Leitner. Go to their website and give them a call or send an email. They are so helpful and friendly. Cheers NolaThanks, but I had a positive yes from a CMCA member [Caravan Club]
where are the bikes made & assembled?
Cycles are made in China, mine arrived in export type carton very well protected. Home assembly amounted to fitting the front wheel, two pedals, ( one pedal is threaded left hand, the other is threaded right hand ) small headlight, saddle. Too easy with small tool kit (supplied). Read all the info on Leitner web site - well put together, any queries - use the help line.Yep it's true what the bloke said well pack and you have too assemble them at home very easy ,if you have a eager son he will love the challenge , just read the PDF on line about the bike you get Hope this has help you Regards Jack

This forum is not always monitored. Regarding how many kilometres you can get out of a charge: 10ah battery: up to 50km 16ah battery: up to 80km This depends on hills, how much the rider pedals and the weight of the rider. Regarding how often the battery can be fully charged before it needs to be replaced: 10ah standard battery and 16ah battery: 500 full charges 10ah long-life battery: 800 full charges. If you’re using the bike daily for short distances, e.g. commuting, it may be best to buy the 10ah long-life battery. I hope this helps and our customer service is happy to answer all your questions directly, please call 1300 856 725 , email firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.leitner.com.au

Looks like a great bike,would love to buy one! Like to know how heavy it is as we have to put it on the car every day?
Having done the same thing, I think it's weight is about 25kg without the battery. I had a problem getting one of those rack adapter bars that go across the frame (because it is a "ladies" step-through) because I couldn't find one rated for the weight of the bike. I ended up having to make one myself.Hi Rosie, great to hear that you like the bike and that you would love to buy one and sorry for the late reply. This forum is not always monitored. Most bikes are around 21.5kg without the battery and 25kg including battery The battery can be removed in seconds. The folding bikes fit into many car boots and there are bike carry racks available for cars for the non-folding bikes; please visit your local bike shop, they may be able to recommend a suitable rack.
