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

Beautiful bike! Will it be available in the aluminum finish as in the photo? Would love to know that too ! Raw polished / varnished aluminum is really appealing :) Looks great overall ! Love the new handlebar grips, and the new motor display/controller ! Looking forward for a better battery integra...

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

To be on par with the current high end market, I think the ~3500$ configuration should look something like this : RockShox Lyrik 160mm front RockShox Deluxe RT3 160mm back Magura MT7 203mm front, 180mm back Sram EX1 groupset (for longevity and power transfer) Schwalbe Nobby Nic Evo 75-584 or MAXXIS ...

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

With EU laws I'm getting more and more interested in buying a "road legal" ebike, and for this you would need a EU certificate of conformity. I guess with the use of the Bafang M500 (250W) that would be possible. Otherwise, the AM1000 seems like a really good base to start with, and battery options ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Is it in the plans for you to provide a certificate of conformity for EU-market oriented bikes ?
Here in Europe, it would boost your sales for 250W / 25km/h bikes !

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Yeah the motor enclosure is made of aluminum but it's really thick, that's great because it looks like you could drop it on rocks all day long but maybe that's a bit too thick... No one would abuse it that much. Personally I'd love to see new battery packs with 20700 cells, we could see 48V 20Ah+ pa...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

But I suggest to request Frey to include a Derailleur Gear Sensors in order not to smash the cog cassette and break the chain when shifting. Don't they include it already ? I thought they did as the Bafang Ultra includes it... Another thing F/R brake disc should have 203mm disc. I understand Frey h...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Two of the heaviest component of bike is the Battery and the Bafang Motor. 1. Battery, unless you want less wattage equal less battery cell. Weight can be reduce. That's why I prefer the 48V 17.5Ah battery, 840Wh is plenty and it's better integrated in the frame :) 2. Motor: Casing of the motor is ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Thank you, I hadn't seen this kind of suspension design on other ebikes (altough I must admit I don't know alot about specific bike geometry). Now I see why this part is absolutely vital, with the dual pivot design on the lower part of the rear triangle. I was mostly thinking about that rear triangl...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hello, I have been following this thread for a while and have read it from the beginning. I really like the Bafang Ultra system, and the fact that Frey has been really reactive with all my questions makes me eager to by an AM-1000. To me the first thing that could be improved is weight by hollowing ...
