Re: Frey AM1000 vol. 2

For those who’ve had issues with Shimano cassettes I can recommend SunRace. Cheaper end cassettes tend to have deeper teething so they prevent chain slipping. Prices hover in the same range with Shimano ~30-50€.

Installed an electric 150mm Magura Vyron Elect dropper post on my bike. Really pleased. No cable-hassle and works greatly. 360€ from Bike24.

Re: Frey AM1000 vol. 2

Any chance of a Black Friday / Cyber Monday promotion from Frey? I'm sure I'm not the only one hoping for some extra incentive to pull the trigger on a Frey CC or EX. :D That would be almost too good to be true. Meanwhile we can enjoy ”discounted” 250W HaiBikes for a bare nominal price of 8999€. Ea...

Re: Frey AM1000 vol. 2

Yeah similar - 400 miles in and I had to replace the chain and cassette. I’ve since also changed the chainring from 40T to 46T and the rear cassette from 11-46t to 11-40t. The new set up is spot on for how and where I ride. I have also changed my riding style on my AM1000 to ‘wind it up’ through th...

Re: Frey AM1000 vol. 2

A quick poll: How long has your rear cassette stood up? A:500kms/300miles B:1000kms/600miles C:5000kms/3000miles D: More than that Mine stood up only 500kms. 100% my own fault since was using the biggest gear and sport mode 5. A chain guide to upper side of the rear stanchion could be a good thing t...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I’d also say that the fact we’re on iteration v5.0 of the AM1000 is testament that Frey have listened to feedback from customers and real life usage of their bikes to continue to innovate and develop the platform. The new EX and other models build on this iterative development methodology. Yes I am...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I think it's not a correct way for Frey to try and solve claims on this forum, they have a team monitoring emails but may not check each post in this or any other thread on the ES forum?! Nobody has demanded or even expected that Frey comes here to solve things. This is FYI -type of communication t...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I was riding my AM1000 with 580 miles on it and my hub failed today. I was a few miles away from home in a very hilly area. Pushing the bike up hills to get home wasn't fun. I purchased the bike last November and this was the 1st problem. I hope Frey has a good solution as I will not be very comfor...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I have no idea about the costs of things, nor did I expect them to pay the replacement costs fully in my case as in Switzerland the hourly rate is simply too high compared to, for instance, China. So I was happy with my resolution as I got the bike up and running within 3 days. I don't know what el...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Just for your information, i accepted the 130USD hub replacement money in my case, which is far more than the value/actual costs. Then I bought an upgraded DT swiss wheel myself. Going around the warranty process and start replacing your broken parts and then expecting them to pay is not reasonable...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

What did the $224 in parts cover? What specific parts did you buy? Was it an upgraded/different hub? Because that’s the price how much it cost for me to put the bike back to working order. 224$ for parts and 87$ for work. I don’t know how you define warranty but to my knowledge it means fixing stuf...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Are you in private communication with Frey about this? Did you even give them a chance to respond? What I think would be fair is to have them either send you a new wheel (we’er past that in this case), or if they’re ok with it, pay a reasonable cost to cover the labor to install your own hub (~$60)...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hold on a second here. You asked for $130, got your $130, and now you’re complaining and want more? That doesn’t sound very reasonable or fair. This was well before the total cost of the replacement was known. If it would have been only the freehub it would have been $130. The claim was changed acc...
