A video on something a bit flatter than I'm used to but these bikes are so fun!
Enjoy the Holidays!

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

If you've watched this thread, you know I abuse my bike off_road a lot. I first thought it was because of a wrong rear suspension setup and had too little air in the rear shock making the frame take the hit on the log steps. I consider myself one of the unlucky ones when it came to the frame break, ...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hi, you aren't the first to have this issue with the frame, see attached pictures. I first took the pictures to Frey (Ivy) to have it handled under warranty, but it has been nearly 6 weeks and still, I have not been given a date on when I might get replacement parts. This summer has finished early f...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I've replaced my throttle after similar observations of jerky behaviour. They're not that expensive, but i can't see any other reason why it would behave like this. The wires that go to the throttle are pretty thin and can easily get an internal break that sometimes makes contact.

If it's a new bike, you can assume it will be working properly and there's no need to open it up.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Depending on your riding style, a 44t front is very nice for a bit faster cycling and not using the 11t rear cog all the time. You can also ask for a rear suspension bearing kit, I think. After having both an EX1 and XT M8000 cassette am1000 bikes, I must say, I do not think the extra costs outweig...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hi, I had an earlier version without a heat sensor and burned a winding. I can tell you, you'll notice that it's burned. This was after heavy abuse of pushing up a friend on a 20% incline in mode 5 for 20 min. Yes, the smell is there, even after you store the bike in your garage and smell the next d...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! NEW FREY EX and FREY CC

Somebody know whats up with Frey customer service. The response is horrible the last month or two. I was very pleased the first month's with the response but now with a almost one year old bike it's really a bad experience:( I don't like to publicly say that because i like them as a company, but it...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Well, I know for certain my disc brakes look like that due to actual burning. I've seen smoke come off on some extreme downhill segments. But even under these circumstances the braking power was more than adequate, even for such a heavy bike.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hi, can you take a picture of how your brake pads look? Furthermore, did you check if the bolts on the discs are tightly secured? Is there any chance some oily substance could have gotten on the pads? Maybe using a spray chain lubricant or other way? If it's related to the discs, what you could try ...

Hi, could be the power cut off from the levers. I don't have a gear sensor and still, this occurs, so I disconnected them to test.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hi Flyingfinn, i had the same type of issue in the beginning. What i ended up doing was putting a 4x4cm2 piece of innertyre at the bottom before putting the battery.
And yes, velcro all around is always good.

Cheers

Hi, I installed an "internally" routed 170 mm dropper using the hole at the bottom in the seat-tube and from there I went back internally through the frame. (I wish I had bought a vyron dropper - fewer cables) Checking bolts is always important, some might need loc-tight. I'm 177 cm and th...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

True, good to know. And thanks for the quick reply. I had about 1000km on my original Frey wheelset, no bite-in at that point. As an upgrade, I got a set of DT Swiss H 1900 (350 Euro at the time for the whole set), on which I have over 3000km at the moment and no bite-in. I can certainly recommend D...

Dt Swiss 350 aluminium hub vs. steel hub (sold separately) both after 500kms.
Any of these from the original Frey frame? Or how does it compare?

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Over a time span of 2.5 years, I did 3500 km on my Frey am1000 without any problems and I've been using the same battery on my commuter bike for a year (add an easy 1000 km). Same as Barbarossa, no remorse for the battery, and they still perform adequately. I've had way worse Chinese batteries dying...
