Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hey Fechter, Yes they do allow ebikes on Slickrock. My homemade one was the bomb and can't wait to go back with the AM1000! I saw two Hai Bikes and I Turbo Levo on the Rock yesterday. They are also allowed on Dead Horse Point state park and I was told Soverign but can vouch for that one as did not ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hey Nata, Well if you go tubeless I would suggest Stan's as I have tried Mavic and Easton with both burping on me, (When they burp you crash!), Stan's have not burped... hence have not crashed, for burping anyway... :lol: Nice wheels. Wonder if i should go tubeless also with my Frey, always nice to ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

So the chainstay is 15mm longer than the Turbo Levo FSR Comp, that's just a hair over a 1/2". Now on my Ellsworth Epiphany Convert 27.5+ tires it's 466mm that is 8mm difference, plus this is not an ebike but to get the plus size tire clearance you need a longer chainstay. My older Epiphany 27.5 with...

Hi Ivy,

Nice video!

I wanted to let you know if you planned on anyone racing one of your bikes it needs to be set to 750w and have no throttle to be able to compete.

Hi Andy, we are planning to develop a internal battery, will check about the Bafang down tube firstly, to check whether it is valuable to use or not.

I hesitated to post this, but I think since Frey is following this thread, they should have this feedback.

I have ordered a AM1000 sample to try out. I work with a bike shop that sells Haibikes, and that’s what I ride. I’m getting it shipped to NY port. We’re really excited to see a high power factory-built e-bike. We’re hoping for great quality and finish like the Haibike, and the Frey components are v...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

This bike looks really pretty. Only the battery fit on down tube can't be big enough. From the bike picture, it seems the rear triangle is also fixed. And if anybody has another Idea what bikes I might be able to use... bring it on... should have at least 750W. And I guess I'd prefer a mid motor......

Re: FREY eMTB with Bafang m600 is developing with your ideas!

When designing the rear suspension, keep the bearings for the main swing arm as wide apart as possible, to reduce the maximum force on them and keep the back end as stiff as possible. Three reasons: -The chain forces on e-bikes are greater than normal bikes, and there are reports of frames bending ...

Re: FREY eMTB with Bafang m600 is developing with your ideas!

As we known, Bafang no battery matching with their tube. I think we can only develop the battery system by ourselves if want to make the bike pretty look. Bafang told us that we can get the mount bracket before our CNY. It is possible for us to make the frame after we get the bracket. it looks dubi...
