The wheel fixed my problem but luckily I still had my old wheel because for $250 I got nothing but the wheel no tire no disc brake. For that price I would expect everything. That’s why I can only give a 3 average.

The bike design and execution are nice. However there are quite a few little things that make it not perfect. First of all the bike ride with few scratches on frame, damaged front axis bolt and zip ties instead of proper plastic Cable Management clips. The main issue however was front breaking disc that was touching breaking pads. Fortunately support was able to respond to my inquiry and send me a replacement parts. Overall I am satisfied with the bike and would recommend to my friends.
I have built over a hundred of these Leon cycles. They do not do well when exposed to water or cold temperatures. The controllers seem to retain a high charge if left exposed to cold temperatures. I might contribute this to the diodes rendered unable to function. The best selling point of these cycles are that they have German engineering, but made in China.
I just got this ebike I'm very impressed the improvements are pretty much minor the lack of a real good bike seat it's very uncomfortable but you can do your own upgrade for something like a bike seat and with the battery I don't believe I can get the full range other people on social media are saying you can get to get a better range I would have to upgrade to the plus size battery but the provided battery to me in realistic riding hills stop and go in real traffic 20 mile range. The upgraded battery will probably give me 30 to 40 miles but other than those two gripes the NCM Moscow it's a very very good option for someone on a budget I caught it on sale for $1000 even well worth every penny
Fantastic bike. Easy to navigate the website and great order process. Bike was delivered quickly in brilliant shape. Followed the leon cycle instructional videos to assemble the bike and it was up and running the day we bought it. Highly recommend
I bought the bike after some internet research because I think it's nonsensical to pay for a bike almost as much as for a used small car.
The e-bike brings EVERYTHING what you need as an amateur to ride a bike in hilly regions. The drive, the range, the handling are unbeatable for the price in my eyes.
My wife has already had an e-bike for 2 years, which I always smiled. I still drove her away with my non e-bike. Okay, when the climb was almost infinite, she drove around me. Now that I have bought an e-bike myself, I ride routes that I would not have chosen before.
Great quality and build by NCM. Easy to assemble from the box. You won’t be disappointed
Checked several other bike retailers before settling on the Aspen + as being both value for money and a great looking bike. Looks though are irrelevant when you need performance and in this respect the off road capabilities are outstanding.
The fat oversize tyres handled rough terrain with ease and funnily enough handled my oversized body equally well. My first ever electric bike required some getting use. Unlike my Kawasaki, don't sit back and expect the bike to do all the work. Power comes on when you pedal. Finally, I do use my Aspen Plus every day to commute to work which is fine, ideally though its better suited to the trails as getting on and off at lights and intersections proved tricky but not impossible without the convenience of a step through commuter bike frame. Overall I'm well pleased with my purchase.
I purchased Aspen plus first and then Munich later. Very excited about the purchase since long lasting battery in Aspen and potential of enjoyment. Giving 4 stars because I started getting noise from rear brake in Aspen plus within 10kms of riding. Contacted Leon CYCLE and recommended to get the bike service which is pretty odd if you pay couple grand for a bike. I understand it's not that expensive but it should not occur in any new bike.
Ride is smoother except the seats which is average and gets uncomfortable if you go on a longer rides, same problems mentioned by a friend as well. I also noticed chain shifting between gears without changing them.
We have friends that paid twice the price for similar bikes and our quality and look and performance is much better. These are a great value and the customer service was great when I had a few questions.
Let me start by saying the customer service in this company is top notch. For every reason you hope for...
Now for the bike....
Solid, Stylish and powerful are the first three words that come to mind. Being a dirt bike rider, this monster is the perfect alternative to my gas powered polluter, and in more remote areas. I ride completely for fun now! Using the seemingly limitless power is almost intoxicating. The workout comes from farther more challenging rides.
I have all the bike I need to handle any trail. I Love the feel of a heavier, fatter more stout vehicle under me. And don’t think I haven’t had it airborne yet... and no huffing and puffing up the hills.
Hey that’s what it’s all about right?, saving your energy for the downhill.
This bike has everything I was looking for in an electric bike. It is very smooth with the suspension great feature. It takes just a little bit of time to get used to and see all the features it has to offer but after that you are going to be very pleased. The battery is very long lasting and its easy to ride I love it and my family all do as well. The breaks are very good quality you especially when the motor is running it will stop. The adjustment on velocity is great too it is very fast. I really like the bulk of the bike it gives it a sturdy, safe feeling definitely prefer this tires.
I’ve ridden about 400 miles so far and haven’t had any problems at all it’s a great bike and great customer service
I purchased my Aspen+ to assist in my knee rehab. Dr agreed this would be an excellent tool. So glad I purchased this bike. Note it has 27 gears and can and often is ridden with minimal assist added.
Have put 500 miles during the quarantine and this has provided sanity in all the insanity.
Hands down an amazing bike. Everything is high quality for a great price. There costumer service was top notch as well and answered all my questions right away. Im very pleased with my bike.
I am 61 years old and I am back on a bike after 40 years. Love it!
Very satisfied with the Aspen model, with its big wheels it really goes everywhere and even on asphalt roads it's such a pleasure.
The power is present and the battery largely holds up!
Great Christmas present, my brother is very happy looking forward to his first long ride
I already owned a Moscow Plus so I had an idea what to expect. Great bike for Florida sandy beaches and trails. Decent quality components and the mechanical disk brakes actually work quite well, way better than the ones on my girlfriend's Lectric. I added a rear rack and bag without too much difficulty. I would prefer that either brake lever disable the motor (like the Moscow Plus), and the display isn't as nice, but all I get is compliments when I show up among the hordes of run-of-the-mill Rad and Juiced bikes. Better price and better components that most others. And I've already learned from minor issues with my Moscow+ that Leon Cycles stands behind their products and is pretty responsive.
awesome bike and fantastic service.i have over 1200 miles since I bought it in May. I have purchased an extra battery and charger after purchasing the bike and service was very fast.
I've had the bike for almost 2 months now, and so far I'm extremely happy with it. I do mostly short rides (30-45 minutes) and have nearly 200 miles on it now. All mechanicals and electronics work as expected. The only real criticism I have is the water bottle bracket placement, it's really dumb unless you're 7 feet tall. To be honest, I chose this product above others mainly because it was the only bike that met my criteria and was actually IN STOCK in the US, but I don't feel like I 'settled for something' at all, I would recommend it to anyone!
This bike was easy to assemble and tune.
The gears work well and shift easy.
The Fat Tires make it a very comfortable ride and add grip to all the terrain I have encountered.
I love the grips on the handlebars. They are comfortable to rest your hands on and make it so they don't fatigue.
The petal assist is nice with the six different speeds you can choose from the LED control panel.
The throttle is easy to press and I really only use it when I am starting up a hill until the petal assist kicks in.
The seat I found to be less than comfortable for an e-bike so I changed it to a wider seat that seems to be working great.
I added a phone holder in the gooseneck cover that makes it easy to have access to my phone and music.
It would be nice if there were integrated lights since it has a battery already.
There is a USB port on the battery that allows me to have a charger for my phone if I want. I suppose I could find some lights that plug into that? I will have to look.
Overall, shipping was very fast and I am happy with this bike! It is good looking and fun to ride.
Everything is great, just keen to get my off road kit
