Built like a tank!

This bike is built like a tank, but rides like a Lincoln Navigator. It’s perfect for my 6’4’, 385 pound body.

Valued Customer
Totally worth the investment!

Saved up for this one for a long time, and it was totally worth the investment. Love this bike, and nothing I does to it even makes the slightest dent.

Valued Customer
Awesome bike!

Awesome bike. Worth the wait!

I can now keep up with my son!

I love being able to keep up with my son on my Zize Bike.

Only company I trust!

Zize Bikes is the only bike company that I trust to make a quality product for someone of my weight to use daily. I loved riding as a kid, and now that I’m back on the saddle I’m enjoying it as much as I did 30 years ago.

Valued Customer
So happy to be riding again!

Being overweight limits what I could do as far as exercise. With my Zize bike, I can ride and enjoy the outdoors without fear the bike will break or malfunction due to my weight. I’m so happy to be riding again!

Valued Customer
I love my Zize Bike!

I love my Zize Bike because I'm almost 6'8" and well, I don't wanna post my weight because well yeah... you know. These bikes are built to support my weight and I can trust the build.

Valued Customer
I get to be outdoors again!

The main thing I love about it is that I get to be active outdoors again.

Valued Customer
Long wait—but worth it!

It did get frustrating waiting for my bike (why do they take so long to make?!) but was totally worth it. I will have this baby for the rest of my life, and can ride it with confidence that it will hold me through thick and thin. Zize comment: We're a lot faster now!

Valued Customer
My bike is bomb proof!

I'm so thankful for Joan’s taking the initiative to build these bikes. Not many people seem to be looking out for fat folks (unless they’re trying to sell us a diet). Joan’s the real thing, and my bike (A New Leaf) is bomb-proof. Love it!

Valued Customer
Best bike ever!

I had forgotten how fun cycling is!

I gained a lot of weight, due to the medications that i was on, and my investment in a Zize Bike has helped me be able to exercise again. I had forgotten how fun cycling is!

The walmart bike section just doesn’t cut it for me, a bigger guy I needed something better! Zize Bikes to the rescue!

The freedom of cycling has been made possible again!

With my post-lineman knees, cycling seemed to offer the same freedom I love in the water but on land. I tried several places, ...."sorry, 200 pound capacity," or "we think it will work but the limit is 250 pounds" were the greetings received by this 6'4" and 360 pound cycle-searcher. Zize's response? "Which model and what color sir?" Why do I love my Zize Bike? I may never be a petite cyclist who looks good in Lycra but the freedom of cycling has been made possible again, thank you.

Valued Customer
I bike to get back to a manageable weight!

I am very overweight and am changing my life so I can be there for my wife and daughters. It starts with getting back to a manageable weight. Riding my bike is the best way to start on that road!

Valued Customer
A “grown up” bike!

Happy to get back into riding again. Used to ride when I was younger but have "grown" quite a bit since then.

Valued Customer
This bike is the best!

So happy to get my Zize Bike so that I can make memories with my kids. I hadn't ridden a bike since I was a teenager— always felt awkward because I have always been a big person. This bike is the best!

Valued Customer
Saving my Life!

I am a lot of things. I'm a husband, father, teacher, music lover, sports enthusiast, etc. The list goes on and on, but unfortunately right now what is defining me more than anything is that I am obese. I'm 28 years old. I'm 6'6 and over 400 pounds. I've always been the 'big guy', but never considered myself to be unhealthy until I had a visit with my doctor. He put my life expectancy at 55. He even added that I'd be lucky to get to 55. I've got so much to give this world, and the thought of not being here for my wife, son and students when I'm 56 terrified me. I started a new diet and in just a few weeks I have lost almost 30 pounds. The dieting will only get me so far. I knew I need to exercise. I know that I need to find some sore of physical activity that will keep me active and help me get down to a healthy weight. Riding a bike is, for me,that activity. When I was younger and smaller I loved to ride my bike. I rode that thing everywhere. But as I got bigger and bigger I just couldn't ride a normal bike anymore. I knew that I can't go out to Walmart and buy a hundred dollar bike. It wouldn’t hold up and I wouldn’t be comfortable. I needed a Zize Bike. A big investment on my budget, but my life is worth it!

Valued Customer
I have become an avid biker after 30 years of being idle!

I got A New Leaf in December. It’s a great bike; it has a great ride and feel. After 30 years of being idle I have become an avid bike rider. A very comfortable bike and easy to transport, too.

Serving an under appreciated market!

I received my A New Leaf and was very happy that it came quickly and with no damage to the shipping box. Assembly was straight forward and was completed without a problem. First impression after assembly was, this is a solid, well built, adult bike. I took the bike for a api and the bike felt stable and smooth. It felt real good to have the wind hit my face like it used to when I was younder. I’m looking forward to exploring the parks and doing Saturday morning chores on my new bike. FYI I am 6’3” and 320 lbs and the bike doesn’t seem to mind one bit. I wish success to Zize Bikes because they are serving an under appreciated market.

Valued Customer
Design is just right

After reading the specifications, a few emails and speaking with Joan Denizot, I found that the stregnth of the Zize New Leaf bicycle frame and build would give me the confidence that I ride long with confidence. I found the 8 gear Shimano hub shift mechanics interesting since it elimanates the bicyle chain Derailleurs. I used a TREK 720 for a lifetime, and that served me well. The design of this bike is right for me at this point. https://www.zizebikes.com/

I take my bike everywhere I go!

I rode my New Leaf around Lake Tahoe in America's Most Beautiful Bike Ride. Now I take it everywhere I go so whenever the urge to ride hits me, I am ready!

I ride for exercise!

I ride for exercise. I ride because it's silly to drive to work when it's only a mile away. I'm a big guy, but it's fun!

I really like my bike!

I just wanted to drop you a line an let you know the the Zize Bike I ordered has been great thus far! I’ve even used it throughout the rugged winters here in Alaska and it continues toehold up nicely. I really like the bike :-)

It's the one thing I never get tired of!

“It was the one thing I never got tired of. Treadmills, jogging, and weights can be mind numbing. When I was biking I wasn't thinking about exercise, I was thinking about being daring and having fun. I rode like a man half my size, going down hills and jumping off things for two-plus hours a day for over a year, and never had a single problem with the bike. It never broke. As a reward after the show (Extreme Makeover: Weightloss Edition)was finished, I got a well-known bike, and it busted almost right away.”

James Garrison
Very Smooth Ride!

 I took the bike to a local shop and they put it together for me. The guys at the
bike shop said the bike was high quality and a very smooth ride (I think
that they all tried it out). They were very impressed. Overall I am really
happy and as you said it was well worth the wait.  I hope that more people
discover the site and order more bikes.

Thank you for remembering us!

I think for the most part the folks who really need things like this are overlooked. Thank you for remembering us.
It was nice dealing with Joan. She took the time to answer all my many questions.
Very pleasant experience. Can't wait to get my bike :)

Joan has great bikes for all sizes all the way up to 550 pounds! Great personal customer service. Quality Bikes - my bike guy was completely impressed by the quality of the parts on my new "A NEW LEAF." Time to go biking...
Shipment came in just as requested ,Packaged neatly and not all beat up when it arrived . Bike and Items were all there . Good transaction Thanks

The Starship enterprize of bikes!

I ordered this bike to get some exercise for myself and our dog, and it's worked great for both. There is no good way to ship a bike, so the box arrived pretty beat up, but everything appeared to be undamaged.

I took all the parts to a local bike store and got them to assemble everything, which they call a "build".

After that was complete, we've used it every day since, sometimes multiple times a day.

This bike is nothing like the 10 speed I used in college - it's closer to the starship Enterprise than it is to a Schwinn. It has disc brakes front and rear, so there are no wheel squeezers to rub and adjust. The rear gear system is all built into the inside of the axle, so there are no rows of sprockets to grind on the real wheel, and no chain jumping on either the front or the back.

Changing gears is like an automatic transmission because you turn the handle grip, give a little hesitation on the pedals, and you're in a new gear.

I was a little wary of the disc brakes at first, but they are much better than the old kind. I have been through dust and some wet stuff so far with no apparent decrease in stopping power.

I know that the gears and brakes are made by Shimano, not Zize, but I give them credit for putting the whole package together into a great bike.

Now whenever the puppy gets restless, I spin him around the block a few times. Then he stretches out on the cool floor for another nap.

Got my ANL2.0 in February (it's almost June right now) and I've already put 200+ miles on this exceptional machine. I'm 6'3" @ 310lbs and the hands-down best thing about this bike is I can TRUST it. I finally have a bike that I can trust to throw my whole weight on when I grip and pedal, and trust the quality that it won't leave me stranded on a long ride, and trust the brakes when I need 'em. The internal gear system is pretty sweet too, it's ultra low-maint and the instant shifting increases power, which was a pleasant surprise. I also highly like the frame and overall design, it's more athletic than a cruiser (but still very comfortable for cruising!) and just feels really smooth and solid... so fun!

Description

“I’ve had my A New Leaf for 3 months and I’ve already lost 45 pounds.”

                     —another satisfied Zize Bikes customer

 

Are you trapped in the not-moving-enough cycle?  Try a different kind of cycle–A New Leaf 2.0–and watch your concerns transform into fun and fitness!  A New Leaf 2.0 is our top-selling, most popular XL bike for plus sized bicycle riders.

Looking for strength? A New Leaf 2.0 is number one in the market! It has a custom chromoly steel frame and front fork, forged alloy shaft, and double bolted seat post. Its pedals are made with a forged alloy platform and a chromoly spindle, and are perfect to accommodate bigger riders. Wheels include spokes made of professional quality stainless steel; extra wide, double wall alloy rims; wide tires with high thread count, and inner tubes with Slime sealant which repeatedly seals punctures like magic!

The weight limit is 550 pounds.

Looking for comfort? Between the high thread count, extra-wide tires and the very comfortable saddle, this bike will make sure that your enjoyment includes not only knowing you’re doing something great for your health, but also for your physical enjoyment.

A New Leaf 2.0’s 8-speed internal gear system allows for plenty of range and it means no  stress for you. Since the gears are enclosed in a hub, you will no longer have problems with chains falling off.  You can shift gears in any position—while pedalling, while cruising, or from a complete stop—nothing to coordinate here. The internal gears will make your every pedal cycle count and make your uphill rides energy-efficient. Not needing to oil your chain after rides also means it’s zero maintenance, another way it makes it easy to stay healthy and keep up with all the demands on your time.

A New Leaf 2.0 is an ideal bike for riders who want to increase their physical fitness and health and are somewhat comfortable on a bike.  It is styled a little like a mountain bike, built like a truck, and has the strength and comfort of a Zize Bike.

A New Leaf 2.0 gives you an easy way to get your health back and have a blast doing it!
