P.S. Does the battery stick out on the sides or is it flush with the frame?
Sticks out on the left

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Can someone please post a video of the AM1000 in action. I can't find any YouTube videos of the bike being ridden, only assembled. About to pull the trigger. I do all mountain riding and am hard on my bikes. Want some confirmation it will hold up and rides well. Planning on the lyrik fork. Decided ...

Do you intend to trim the handlebar ? Your arms seems way too open with the current length. Or maybe you like/are used to ride like that ?
I am used to riding like this but I was thinking about trimming it because there are some gaps where I struggle to squeeze through.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I managed to shoot a little video with the AM-1000 last Sunday. My dog insisted to come with me so I am not going very fast but the dog ist actually quite fun to watch and really enjoys it. Do not expect anything fancy. It is just a relaxed ride in the park behind my house. I hope you like it despit...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Haha, DaninSpain, I know what you mean with the attention. Everywhere you go people want to know what kind of bike that is. Especially here in the uk e-bikes are seen as cheating bikes so they are not very common. I normally let people have a go and they come back with big smiles. It’s definitely th...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I received my bike a few days ago and I discovered after a 5km ride that the nut holding the left pedal crank was missing, and hence the arm fell off. I cannot say whether or not the nut was missing or it was loose and fell off during the 1st ride, but what I do know is I cannot ride my new bike un...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I have got my Frey AM1000 a while ago and I am really happy so far. I have tested it on my local trails and its doing really well. Can't wait to take in into the mountains now the weather in the UK is finally getting better. Unfortunately I have now lost my charger while doing some work on the house...

Re: Self Driving Uber Kills Pedestrian

Here are some statistics about deaths in traffic in the US. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Motor_vehicle_fatality_rate_in_U.S._by_year It is surprising that numbers are not coming down but look fairly constant despite joint efforts to make traffic safer. A total of 37,461 people died in 2016. That is...

Re: What is the best personal electric transportation?

20 km is quite a commute. With 18 km/h max speed the airwheel is too slow. The scooter and the skateboard may have range issues and problems with moisture. How is the weather where you live? And what is the bike path and the sidewalk like? The scooter and skateboard require a good quality surface ot...

Re: Solar Kiteboat Electrical Needs

Probably wrong forum here... I run a similar setup on my van though. I use one flexible 150W panel on a 88 amp h battery. It’s fine for running a vent through the night for the fridge and it keeps heating running. It’s all 12V on your side I guess? I use a NASA bm-1 battery monitor. Not sure if this...
