Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

The cranks are too long. Hit on everything. I will have to get shorter ones. MODS: I switched to a left thumb push throttle and it fits the bike much better IMO.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Anyone else disgusted by the rear thru-axle supplied on the bike? I couldn't get it out - thought I was an idiot and missing something obvious - never seen a quick lock that comes apart when unlocked and offers no ability to remove the axle. Took to the local LBS and asked what I was doing wrong. Th...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Are the rims tubeless-ready on the AM1000? Mine are generic and I can't find any info. Has a slight bead seat but not sure if that's sufficient. I've been able to get tire to seal and hold air, but haven't been able to get the "pop" to let me know the tire has fully seated. Do I need a new rim? Anyo...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Nice and beefy. Like the internal cables. However, the battery integration could use some improvement - really noticeable in any color other than black.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

The charger plug looks like a 3 pin Mini-DIN, but without the square center post. Do they come without that post? Can you rid yourself of it's not DIN. The closest match I have found is GX-16 3-pins. However, the stock cable is Reention-branded (the mfg. of the battery case), and It looks like the ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I'm a little frustrated. I've been messaging Ivy on alibaba for three days. She's reading my messages according to the site, but not responding. I only got one vague response about five days ago. Here's the record. Base price is about $3K plus expensive air-freight shipping. About 45 days to build ...

I communicated/ordered via the Alibaba app. Ivy was quite responsive. Almost always next-day response, even on weekends. If I communicated during China working hours, usually got quick response within hours.

Ivy told me before buying that the batteries come separately, but she did not give me a tracking number for the batteries. Does anyone know how and when my batteries come home? Best regards If...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

How to run lights that draw more than 500mA @ 6V and have them controlled from the Bafang handlebar control pad. This modification is capable of supplying the full battery voltage at 2.5A. 1) Remove the battery. IMPORTANT! 2) Remove the three screws holding the plastic cover above the motor. 3) Rem...

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

Nice, but could/should be nicer. Battery integration needs more work at both top and bottom of battery. I thought the battery was going to be more hidden (like higher-end Euro designs)? I like you rotated the motor to gain more bb clearance, but it could be nicer implementation (why not rotate the m...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Some more remarks about the frame (might not be the last, i'm reviewing every single mm of the frame before doing the final assembly). Rear disc mounting posts: Not faced. Heavy paint globs on them. Not good as it renders the caliper / disc alignment hard to achieve resulting in sub optimal braking...

Is it me or does anyone notice a lot of rattling of the battery when riding off road? Mine is really noisy clunking back and forth. I have a spare battery tried it too with just as much noise. So must be design flaw? Cheers, DDF Consider adding some 3M 2228 electrical sealing tape - very flexible/d...

Any Canadians/ Pacific Norther Westerners (Vancouver, Seattle, Portland) looking to join in on a shipping contain, let me know!

How many bikes in a container? And is Frey discounting for bulk purchases?

Surprised they haven't set up a local distribution agreement with someone.

Can someone please measure the seat tube to see if there is enough available non-constricted length? the straight part of the seat tube on the M-sized v2018 frame is 250mm, immediately after you've got an exit point for the dropper cable. Thanks. Looks like plenty of room. I'm going wireless to avo...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

That light needs 2.5A for it’s specified brightness. The cable can only provide 0.5A if it’s the same as the BBSHD. I’m not saying it won’t work, just that it could be brighter. You might be better off with a DCDC converter (48V to 5V) wired to the 48V battery. I purchased the Roxim X4 from Grin la...

Hi, Here I want to answer 2 points as below: "the bearing itself is seated properly, the bolt covering it too long resulting in the gap. Previous AM1000 did not even have this cover on the bearing-retaining bolt. I don't know if it is resolved." We are improving the bolt covering to fit surface bet...

Well that could have gone better. Battery finished charging. Went for a test ride, in lowest gear, eco mode 3, 15 seconds into the ride, starting up a steep hill and the derailleur snapped off between the adjustment limit screws. Waiting to hear back from Frey. :( Yikes. Can you share a picture?
