Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

you can use luna wrench or the bottom bracket shimano TL-FCsomething tool (beware, there are different Ø that look almost the same). Thanks Ivanovich_k.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Take the nuts off and belt the bolts out with a hammer and a steel rod (I used an old T30 torx screwdriver). Seriously. They aren't threaded, just really tight. By using a rod centred on the bolt you are less likely to roll over the thread with the hammer. Brilliant. Thanks Tom. I'll grit my teeth ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I guess frey will send you a new motor... I'm counting on it, as I'm sure lots of people who are thinking about buying a FREY bike are. Post-sale customer service is so important. Your possible explanation had me nodding my head. Sounds very plausible, even for a non-tech numpty like me :lol: :oops...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hi guys I messed up and managed to get oil on my rear disk and pads. Not being particularly knowledgable about MB's and their components, I didn't think it was too much of a big deal, that is until I started to read up about it on the web. So it looks like I'll need to change my pads. Trouble is, I'...

Thanks a lot Fechter. It's very much appreciated that you took the time to illustrate that for me.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hoojsn and Fechter: Thanks for the advice. I will add a gear sensor to my bike, but in the meantime pedalling back slightly has been a bit of a revelation as it's quite a natural movement and it works. God knows why haven't thought of that before. Sometimes the obvious needs to be pointed out :oops:...

Re: Backward Pedalling to clean chain

That's just a fact of life with an integrated mid drive system like that. The pedals themselves are on their own freewheel, to allow them to remain stationary while the motor is running. Pedals stop, chainring (and chain) keeps moving. I have a couple of small lag bolts in the edge of my workbench ...

Backward Pedalling to clean chain

Hi. I suspect I may be missing something here, but on every bike I have ever owned I have cleaned my chain with a chain cleaner by peddling backward to rotate the chain through the cleaner. I have recently purchased my first electric bike (Frey AM1000), which I am very pleased with, but I just notic...

Bafang Ultra Tips and Tricks

Hi folks. I just bought a bike incorporating the Bafang Ultra mid drive motor directly from China. I couldn't find a User Guide for the functions of the display, settings etc, so I thought that I would start a thread so owners can share features that are not so obvious. I'll start with a couple of t...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Left pedal crank arm loosening on the BBS02/HD versions was also an issue. Were they already fitted or did you fit yourself? To tighten properly use Loctite or similar threadlock along with a large Allen key and stand on the end of it to get enough torque! Anyway should be an easy fix when you get ...
