At some point, my swingarm is supposed to show up.
When that happens, we can see how your efforts compare to my bolt-on frock.

Are you sure it was even shipped? I was in on the first batch, live in the US, and still didn't get my swingarm yet. :/
Im not sure if it was shipped too, coz I got no tracking number and Farfle does not reply to pms.
Either way I posted the news about the custom policy thats being enforced now because it really pissed me. Imagine if im about to ride my ebike and find that I need a bolt or a clamp thats only made in US, that means waiting about 100 days. Its really a kick in the nuts when you are doing things like an ebike that need alot of parts that are not available here.
Stuff in the US is cheaper than local, I dont have any official data but im sure that millions of brazilians do buy from US using mail services like USPS.
You guys never got a tracking #?! Is it too late to cancel or dispute the transaction?
With Farfle posting in other places on the forum and then not even replying to the PM's of his paid customers...I'd say it's time to drop the benefit of the doubt and start taking this seriously before you guys get burnt!!!
I wish I could help you out gensem, it would be good to find out if it was in fact shipped and is really just stuck in customs.
ZOMVTEK, cool, I've been out on my build a few times on just 6s 10Ah and a super simple 190-200 esc. It is a climber, I've not been able to stop the back wheel yet in my quest to find the steapest hills around the train tracks by walden and transit. So much torque!
I've got 8 of the 4s cardcase packs on the way from HK, so it won't be too long before I'm up and running. Since you are close and IF you never get your swingarm, would you like an aluminum one like mine? I could help you out.
Ebike: Wallmart Genesis frame, unique Lovejoy 2-speed simplified/redundant drive mounted on custom aluminum swingarm conceptualized by me, machined by Thud. Brushless 80-100~100kv w/halls, 16s6p - 59.9v, 30Ah, 1.7+KWh, Fully Loaded Lyen 12 FET 3077 controller w/ Cycle-Analyst, full custom lighting.
