Re: Bafang ultra,how strong is it.Does it overheat?

Is Watt Wagons offering a controller-only upgrade? Looks like they offer it as part of the motor right now . If the performance is as good as you make it out to be, it will be a worthy upgrade. I wouldn't mind spending if it gives my bike a new life. Looks like if it ships to Germany and back it is ...

Stripped Bafang connector - where can i find spares?

I opened my M600 to re-grease but stripped one of the pin connectors. Can someone please tell me what they are called please and where can I find them please? They don't appear to be JST (or may be they are but a special type).

Help please.

Shorten or extend controller cables - looking for connectors

I have a BBSHD controller cable that I want to shorten so it doesn't stick out - there is very little room in the FS frame to ziptie it. I can definitely cut/ splice the cable to the right length - Is there a recommended Male-Female connector that I can use] instead of using electrical tape or twist...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

My $0.02 here - I spoke with another supplier and looks like Bafang has told them that the firmware and ports are evolving, and to expect updates. I asked for additional details but that is all they got. This particular supplier is hesitant to sell the M600 system right now. I am guessing it works t...

Spare parts for the Bafang Ultra ?

I see a bunch of posts around parts for the Bafang Ultra - how real is this issue ? How many failures have people seen with the Ultra ? The answer is probably non-zero, but with motors (even BBSHD) , do users see a large amount of maintenance and need for spare parts ? Curious if people have anecdot...

Re: Stromer ST1X vs Juggernaut Ultra 1000 vs DIY

The G310 probably cannot handle that unless you volt up and gear down ( this would require 20" wheels and a phaserunner to handle the high eRPM that results ). I'd imagine it can do 25mph continuous ( check the ebikes.ca motor simulator ) all day, but only short spurts to 30mph.. Agreed neptro...

Re: Stromer ST1 vs Juggernaut Ultra 1000

Juggernaut Ultra is one hell of a bike for the price, considering the powerful mid-drive and fairly good components. The Stromer is on a whole other level of quality (being euro-made, as opposed to taiwan-made), but the Juggernaut definitely takes the cake in the following categories: I would go fo...

Re: Stromer ST1 vs Juggernaut Ultra 1000

Proprietary is not good at all. Both Specialized and Giant are proprietary - infact every single component from the battery to the motor, switches, displays etc on them is proprietary. So if Proprietary is bad, Specialized and Giant are the worse choice. You HAVE to buy everything from them. Go to ...

Re: Stromer ST1 vs Juggernaut Ultra 1000

Both bikes are wildly overpriced by a factor of 3 compared to something you can build in your own. Umm.. how ? The closest i can see is the Luna KHS for $3200 plus shipping. 1. Reasonable bike with quality components is atleast $1500. Don't give me the craigslist route - Frame is probably ok, but t...

BBSHD - still big demand ?

I am curious if there is any insight around the demand for BBSHD, compared to the relatively newer Ultra or other?

Vendors are still selling the BBSHD kits, but I am curious if there is continuing demand for conversion of existing bikes, as opposed to buying custom frames / bikes.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Did you get any water in the connectors? I saw this once with a BBSHD build once. Disconnected everything , let the connectors dry, plugged back in and it reset.

This may also be a loose connection somewhere. Frey should be able to help you.

Re: Is entering the ebike market a viable business now?

Regulations in the US (and elsewhere) seem to me like a big question mark.
