Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I would save the money and go with the stock Shimano package. then once you receive the bike upgrade it to Rohloff! :mrgreen: It was a 248 USD option, fairly cheap if you look how much the set costs here. Isn't the Rohloff crazy expensive compared to that? my am has been running the ex1 groupset fo...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

might sound stupid, but does it not do anything in higher assist levels as well? If no, then most likely a cut-off feature that stops the motor from engaging.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I figured, I've had the same experience here but also sometimes when I was the other one coming down while ebikers are going up. Going up hill is definitely another experience but going up at 20 while another is going down at 30 makes an impact pretty devastating and with all the trees. I just order...

The AM1000 I received in April now has 700 miles. It's been 100% reliable and a lot of fun. Here I am on the trail yesterday... (if it plays at low res change it with the "settings")

It almost looks like you should be riding in the opposite direction, not afraid of someone coming your way?

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

won't the battery technology be outdated by the time these batteries will reach their end? I've got about nearly 500 cycles on mine and no noticable decrease.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Trust me, everybody loves their e-bikes, they're a blast, but anybody that has ridden my am1000 and compared it to theirs judged that either theirs is satisfying them just as good and don't need all that much more, or loved the extra kick. But in all honesty, I always wonder why people want lighter ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

On their website it says they are "48V/21Ah with 78pcs Samsung3500mA cell". Probably the older Alibaba posts might still have this "old" (mis)information; a quick search reveals that on the same advertisement it is stated: "48V/21Ah with 78pcs Samsung 3500mA cells" "48V/21Ah with 78pcs Samsung/LG 35...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I find that those 4 lights for the 52v battery are not working anyway. After 1h rides of 30km i still get 4 lights on, so wouldn't trust them anyway. Even after LVC cut-off I have two to three lights still on.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I do a good share of riding with both Specialised and Merida e-bikes within e-mtb group rides, and can attest that the AM1000 does have a hard time keeping up with them in tight,twisty & rough single track type riding due to it size and weight. But out in the open or up any hills it will simply che...

So I got out for my first proper ride on my new Frey AM1000 V5 Bafang eBike (52V 17.5ah). I thought I would write up a quick report! This is coming to you from the United Kingdom. I went out with my local cycle club on a road ride with them (8 of us altogether) purely to get a proper feel for the b...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

As said before, you can change the setting from percentage to voltage on the display for 52v batteries. This will then also show you in short term what the voltage sag is under load when applying throttle or torque. Throttle for me is pretty good and variable. I do seem to have something in the moto...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

44T up front with a 11 to 48T in the back will get you up any hill that doesn't throw you backwards of the bike and has ample speed. I was thinking of going for 42T but then I'd be using more of the small cogs, and i'm currently on my third set of the 11-13-15. I do use full power most of the time a...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Great to hear that, I'm switching to a newer frame as mine is still one of the first versions. Their 5.0 AM1000 should be sent to me thanks to Ivy for coming to an agreement on how to handle my situation!
