Will this work on a hardtail mountain bike if the BB to tire distance is in range?

Frey Group Buy (PNW/Seattle/Portland)

I'm looking to gauge interest in a group buy for the Seattle area. Between the new Hardtail, the AM1000 and the m600 model it seems like there could be significant demand.

I'm in Seattle and could help facilitate if there's interest.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I'm considering one of these bikes. How does one customize a bike? I see a bunch on Alibaba, but I don't see any way to customize.

Of the bikes on Alibaba, they seem to range from 2200 - $3800 before shipping, but I don't see much difference in the specs for many of them.

What am I missing?

Re: Seattle Commuter/Trail Build

I ride my BBSHD bikes (two of them, one at a time) through a walkway in a tunnel under some railroad track, fairly often. Maybe 6 or 7' wide, so very "reverbatative" (?). The tires make enough noise to mask any E noise, as near as dead silent as any bike can be. I also used to ride a 350 watt hub m...

Re: Seattle Commuter/Trail Build

When I go to purchase anything from the cyclone-tw website I get shipping charges of 100x the price of the item....So that $469 kit doesn't fit my budget. It looks like it would be $439 shipped from Luna for the 3k kit though....not bad, though they don't include brake sensors or PAS.

No they aren't that loud, just the typical geared motor sound. I am used to direct drive hub motors which have no noise when using a Sine wave controller.

Re: Seattle Commuter/Trail Build

The 3kw Cyclone I would vote for the Cyclone 4kw but if you wanted silence, I have heard first hand, face to face from a guy that says the BBSHD's are silent I dunno if he said with a Sinewave controller. Do simple search on ES. https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=95662&p=1400778...

Seattle Commuter/Trail Build

I'm looking to build a relatively cheap mid-power (1500W or more) mid-drive. I don't think I'd need to ever go much over 35mph, but I suppose it's hard to know for sure. I have a Bike (Cannondale Cujo 2) that's got 27.5x2.8" tires and decent components (Disc Brakes, 1x11 drivetrain). It's well withi...

Re: "New" Polaris E-Bike

I rode Polaris bike(s) at the Electric Bike Expo in San Diego in early 2016, then wasn't surprised to learn they were going out of business since their bikes were the least fun to ride of the many that I tried. I would be concerned that the batteries are pretty old by now. If you like the way the b...

Re: "New" Polaris E-Bike

What I'm hoping to gain insight into is, how bad is it if the company behind your e-bike goes out of business? Obviously, you lose any warranty, and if something goes wrong you're more or less on your own. Are the proprietary parts impossible to replace/repair or is it fairly manageable? Or, does th...

I've moved on to trying to mount the sensor on the non-drive side. I've never installed a PAS system, but I always assumed the sensor would mount on the left side (opposite the chain ring side). And looking at my old installation manual for my yescomusa kit, that's where it shows it be installed. T...
