Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Still loving mine - I had a motorcycle accident last fall, and was not out on two wheel anything for a while. Getting back to moving again, and have commuted with the AM1000 a few times. I have to say I am very impressed with the Support from Ivy and the Frey team, and how the bikes continue to evol...

EX1 8 speed Rear Groupset on Ebay

I bought a Frey AM1000 bike with the EX1 Groupset, and it was not available when the bike shipped. They sent it later, and I am happy with what I have. The groupset is new and unused, cassette, chain, derailer, and shifter is included. I have it on Ebay with $250 starting bid. https://www.ebay.com/i...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

I am on a 48V 21ah battery, my commute is 20 miles. I ride it in PAS 3 most of the way, with one 3 mile stretch along a busy road that I goto PAS 5 or full throttle. It takes about an hour to do the trip, and the battery is pretty low when I get there. An easy ride in PAS 2-3 would be fine for a few...

Still no 27.5+ bike, the HT1000 won't take a 27.5+ wheel, and it doesn't sound like one that will is being made. Months of waiting for nothing. . .
I have 27.5 x 3.0 installed from Frey on my AM1000.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

My full EX1 set arrived, and it is a very nice piece, but I'll say I am happy with the setup I have on the bike. I might consider selling the EX1 to recoup some of the bike costs, anyone interested in a full set? Chain, sprocket, front gears, derailer, shifter, and cable?

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

My "sweet spot" for the commute on the Rover has been about 18-20 MPH at PAS 3, it leaves a safe buffer on the commute and rolls well. I do full throttle it on some of the tighter parts. Besides the bigger motor and battery, the mid-drive Frey has the advantage of gears, so with a similar level of e...

Re: Xiaomi m365

Many of the Ebay sellers are knock offs - I have one, and it is OK, but not the same as the M365. I ordered straight from Alibaba, Best I could find to US shipped was in the $500USD range.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

To add - I am not an electrical engineer at all, so perhaps someone can work it out - The Rads are 750W with 672Wh, Frey is 1000W with 1008Wh, I would estimate full throttle range would be similar, but the speed would be higher on the Frey. Full throttle on my rover is 26MPH, I am 37-38MPH on the Fr...

I have a Rad Rover, Rad Mini, and AM1000 - I am 215lbs, and have a 19 mile commute. I carry a full set of clothing, first aid kite, air pump, lock, etc, a pretty good weight on top of myself. My Rad Rover makes it in PAS 3 - holding about 18-20 MPH, and has just a little battery left when I get ther...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Hey guys, Does anyone know a decent rear bike light that connects with the g510? I ride a lot at night and I'm very interested in having a rear light that I don't separately have to charge or get off my bike to turn on. I had them wire one in on mine, both headlight and tail. I can see if I can fin...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Update on my snapped derailer, I went to install the new one this weekend and the derailer carrier was severely bent. Must have taken a hit in shipping. I was able to straighten it then install a new shimano XT. Dialed in the setup, set my sag up (I was like 75% as shipped - took the pressure up to ...

I wonder if that was done in shipping or if Customs tore into it, who was the carrier that delivered it?
Fed Ex to my house - the driver said was like that when he got it, was taping it up all day.

... can anyone suggest an appropriate LED light (front/rear) for this bike, that is removable for the trails?

How is everyone finding their AM1000? Still not too many reviews/videos on it.
Still waiting on the arrival - I don't think there are too many out there - sort of a niche market
