A New Leaf 2.0
Verified Purchase “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. “
Valued Customer –
Verified Purchase After reading the specifications, a few emails and speaking with Joan Denizot, I found that the strength 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 eliminates the bicycle 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://zizebikes.com/
Verified Purchase 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.
Verified Purchase The main thing I love about it is that I get to be active outdoors again.
Verified Purchase “Happy to get back into riding again. Used to ride when I was younger but have ”grown” quite a bit since then. “
Verified Purchase 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!
Verified Purchase I love being able to keep up with my son on my Zize Bike.
Verified Purchase 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.
Verified Purchase 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.
Verified Purchase 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.
Verified Purchase Awesome bike. Worth the wait!
Verified Purchase 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!
Verified Purchase 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.
Verified Purchase I ride for exercise. I ride because it’s silly to drive to work when it’s only a mike away. I’m a big guy, but it’s fun!
Verified Purchase ‘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.”
Verified Purchase 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!
Verified Purchase 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.
Verified Purchase The Walmart bike section just doesn’t cut it for me, a bigger guy I needed something better! Zize Bikes to the rescue!
Verified Purchase It’s the best bike ever! Love riding.
Verified Purchase My Zize Bike is a welcome addition to our family. We have access to a beautiful bike trail and now I can join my spouse and kids and we can ride it in great comfort, incorporating bicycles as part of our healthy lifestyle regiment.
Verified Purchase 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!
Verified Purchase 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!
Verified Purchase 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!
Verified Purchase 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.
Verified Purchase This bike is built like a tank, but rides like a Lincoln Navigator. It’s perfect for my 6’4′, 385 pound body.
Verified Purchase Based on bike quality, this would get 5 stars. But it seemed to take them an awfully long time to build this baby, so they get a star off. Pick up the pace, Zize, and you’ve got it all figured out!
Verified Purchase ‘You have to make exercise fun”, he says. ”I do this for fun.”
Verified Purchase “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”
Verified Purchase I am looking to get back into shape. I love riding bikes and have currently reached a weight that most bikes can’t handle. Zize is what I needed to get my life back!
Verified Purchase 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 th bike for a api an 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.
Verified Purchase 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!
