Re: Titanium Fatbike - Bafang Ultra and Phaserunner

I was also considering a Titanium frame with my build, but was concerned about the durability due to the flex. Do you not see this as a concern? No, not concerned at all. Ti flexes but can withstand that flex much more then other materials. Also makes the bike more comfortable . The frame was desig...

Unless you really want a BBSHD/ want to build your own, this would also work for your needs

Re: Best Starter Frame for Bafand BBSHD

How fast do you plan to ride? Based on experimenting with different speeds over the bumps on my hard tail along my route each day: If under 15-17mph, about any bike will do unless the surface is really rough, with 2.5 tires with slightly lower pressures (35 psi). Between 17-20 mph, my cheap suspens...

Re: Best Starter Frame for Bafand BBSHD

I have plenty of opinions. Skip the titanium unless it is a huge diameter tubing and or you are very light. Though resilient with great comfort it is very flexible. Not what you want especially with the added weight of the Bafang and battery. I have my HD Ludicrous on a specialized stumpjumper with...

Best Starter Frame for Bafand BBSHD

I am building my first ebike and am being overwhelmed by the number of choices. I prefer no full suspension because I want racks and fenders. My budget is $1,000-$1,500 (bike alone) and if warranted up to around 2K for the bike. I have been scouring Bikes Direct and Bike Island for a while now. It's...

Re: EM3ev vs Luna Batteries and Kits

EM3ev seems to have things on sale at cheaper prices than Luna. Is there a reason to buy Luna over EM3ev? It seems like you get more battery for the cost with EM3ev and the BBSHD is also cheaper. Am I missing something? Afaik em3ev ship from china and Luna from US. Depending on where you live you m...

Re: Anybody see any problems with this Starter Frame and Component List

At $ 1,4999 there are much better options, Where are you located ? ( Craigslist has some good Full Suspension Bikes depending on where you live , when a bike has been on craigslist for over 3 days it is over priced so look for a better deal or realize the owner is putting the price high for hagglin...

Re: Anybody see any problems with this Starter Frame and Component List

I was just going to buy the bike and then use this guide below to order the right BBSSHD kit and spacers if need be. Or perhaps the Luna Mighty Mini. https://electricbike.com/forum/forum/knowledge-base/motors-and-kits/bbshd/10736-how-to-order-the-right-bbsxx-kit Ya, I found a picture online with a ...

Re: Anybody see any problems with this Starter Frame and Component List

Does anybody see any problems I might encounter using this bike? Without seeing the frame in person, I guess I’d wonder about chain ring/chain stay clearance since the stock chainring is smaller than the mid drive ring (can’t assume a larger ring will clear).

That should be a straight forward conversion and a really fun bike when you've got it all put together.

Anybody see any problems with this Starter Frame and Component List

Hello, I'm building a new Ebike with a Bafang BBSSHD with Luna Wolf Pack and was going to get a Titanium MTB from Bikes Direct but realized they came with carbon forks. I decided against it because of that and the cost. So I decided on this Fantom 29'er bike instead - Aluminum with Shimano Deore XT ...
