Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

I have the hub motor version of this m2s frame and yes it’s heavy , and really it’s not true mountain bike more of a Jeep road bike because when I take it through my normal mountain bike the battery screws rattle out and very cumbersome the shocks bottom out . But my bike was only $1750 so for that ...

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

Wayne I checked M2S bikes and they too now have a aluminum frame Bafang M600 mid drive bike available on preorder at $3500 . But I noticed it does not come with a throtttle . This is the only bike they do t have without a throttle . They just say it’s not available. I don’t know there is any speed c...

Re: FLX BLADE

I forgot to mention the Frey aluminum version full suspension with the same Bafeng Ultra motor . Many posts here on ES which is a viable option a little heavy but very best of the Chinese manufacturers with excellent follow through .

Re: FLX BLADE

The FLX Blade is a amazing fast bike . Viewing the videos verified that 20 mph restrictions is a joke . Even with my first M2S bike with only 500 watt hub motor is faster than most EU restrictive bikes. The only reason I did not purchase the FLX is due to not having full suspension for mountain biki...

I just bought the M1 Spitzing . First of all it’s not $10,000 . List price is around $7500 , some discounts at the end of the year get it down further so about the same as other high end E bikes . I got the version with Fox 36 electric version160 mm and rear fox at 150 Mm travel , the R version unre...

Wayne Sorry this response is out of sequence but I just found out from a friend about Lightbicycle.com they are the OEM to Specialized . They are out of China but are set up to ship rims inexpensively to the US or Canada $50. The rims vary I would suggest a all mountain 35,38,40 widths . The 38mm wi...

I just bought the Spitzing M 1. The " Standard version" with 160 mm and 150 mm Fox suspension. I was recommended to just upgrade the tires from 2.35 to 2.8 front and 2.6 in the rear. List price went down to $ 6500.00 with discounts at end year its getting really reasonable. No comparisons to standar...

Re: Bafang Ultra powered Full Suspension Carbon Bike from Germany

The new Flyon bikes from Haibike wich use the TQ aswell, look more interesting to me (price/looks). I hope I get ...

Re: Carbon Fiber e bike with Bafang M 600 mid installed with throttle

OK, I have a new Bafang Ultra powered bike, looks as if it was made by Kaiyi in China. Looks a lot like a Frey, etc. The frame is too big for me to use while wearing police uniform (BDU) pants. The standover height is just a little too tall. I can probably get by but if there was an easy option I'd...

Re: Carbon Fiber e bike with Bafang M 600 mid installed with throttle

Great thread (almost missed it not being in the "E-Bike Non-hub Motor Drives" forum). Sounds like the aluminum frame would add about 2 pounds (800 g). I assume the motivation to opt for aluminum would be durability, not necessarily cost savings? It’s actually huge saving the Frey Company you can lo...
