Re: My New Bafang Ultra - E-BIKE HYBRID SUV 27.5

Fedex had my 52v battery status as delivery by end of day. That status disappeared, and a new unknown status has appeared. My Ultra motor is now being tracked by DHL. It's in Hong Kong, and is scheduled for delivery on Friday. What could possibly go wrong? (With apologies to Jeremy Clarkson.) Aww, ...

Re: My New Bafang Ultra - E-BIKE HYBRID SUV 27.5

This Aliexpress seller is a joke, Really terrible. I'm waiting on Aliexpress judgment on my dispute. I hope the refund me my money for the battery as it is now 42days since I ordered and the Battery STILL has not shipped. Seller is also no longer responding to my messages. Glad you were able to get ...

Re: My New Bafang Ultra - E-BIKE HYBRID SUV 27.5

Do you know whether the stock 44T chainring that comes with the Bafang Ultra can be run without the chain guard so all you see is just the chain ring and exposed teeth? Yes, Thats how I have it now. I will be getting a new chainring eventually as well the Stock 44T is a bit tall for my riding. Will...

I'm pretty pissed off at the Aliexpress seller right now. They still have not shipped the battery! Its been well over a month since I ordered everything and they kept making promises to ship, but still, it has not shipped. Before I even ordered I was told everything would ship in 15 days. I have sta...

Re: Lekkie BLINGRING upgrade for Frey AM1000 Bafang Ultra Shimano XT

As far as I know. I havent gotten that far on my Ultra build. but I think it should be good.

The RaceFace Narrow wide is a good choice. Make sure you get the narrow wide style chainring, the stock Bafang 44T is Narrow wide and not too bad. just heavy and 44T. Im getting a 40T.

Re: Lekkie BLINGRING upgrade for Frey AM1000 Bafang Ultra Shimano XT

Lekkie doesn't make a chainring for the Ultra motor.

Best you can do is swap out the 44T stock steel chainring for a 130BCD 38-44T Raceface or similar NarrowWide Chainring. The Chainring on the Ultra mounts onto a custom spider, not the same as the BBS02 or BBSHD.

Re: My New Bafang Ultra - E-BIKE HYBRID SUV 27.5

Hi ! Nice project!!! I routed my rear brake cable through the motor. it is enough place. but rear derailleur cable would also match (brake=6mm and Shimano SP41 is only 4mm), but the real problem is the angle of the routing - its too much. Its a Frey AM1000, but might be the same issue here. I chang...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I too was hesitant about the price of the bike, especially with shipping and import duties. I decided to get a frame, motor, and battery and then build the rest of the bike locally. Was a little cheaper this way, no import duties since it was not a complete bike and I get to pick the components I wa...

Seller sent me some more picture of their complete bike. The frame combo I ordered should be shipping this week. And most of the part will be arriving this week. I will update this as things start coming in.

Anyone got any opinions so far? What do you guys think about the bike? Comments are welcome!

Hey Guys, I wanted to start a thread on my experience purchasing and building up a Bafang Ultra bike/frame.

I had high hopes for Frey especially after 45 pages of good reviews, but not one response to my many emails means it’s not a company to deal with. Cheers, Tom All of China was on holidays until just ...

Awesome work so far, Gonna be watching this one intently.

Im considering doing something similar, any chance the Cyclone 3000w will fit inside the battery box? or does it have to be below?

Re: difficulty engaging cyclone mode 3

For my cyclone controller it was the pink wire to one of the black ground wires. You might not notice mode 3 if you're just spinning the wheel while in the air. On my controller/motor it takes a couple seconds for the higher speed to engage. It starts the same as mode 2 but after a couple seconds it...
