Can someone please measure the seat tube to see if there is enough available non-constricted length?
the straight part of the seat tube on the M-sized v2018 frame is 250mm, immediately after you've got an exit point for the dropper cable.

Re: Bafang Ultra Discussion

Does someone knows the purpose & pinouts of the ultra's connectors ? Also, their make/model would be useful edit: found them, they are JST's JWPF series and are surprisingly IPX7 rated (i.e. no ingress for at least 30min under 1 meter of water) ! here is what I know so far, all viewed from motor-sid...

Looks great.

Does that one have torque sensing?
G510 aka Bafang Ultra always comes with torque sensing.

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

We are improving the bolt covering to fit surface better now. I will upload some photo tomorrow. good news ! This will protect the bearing better.

Anyone figure out how to set up two completely different settings of 5 pedal assist levels, one for Eco, one for Sport?

Honestly, my dream bike is this thing https://www.exess-bikes.de/index_en.htm , but they won't sell to the US. This bike is nice, but if I had to choose between the excess and the frey, I would still go for the frey. The selling points of the Excess vs the AM1000 are the carbon frame and the dt swi...

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

the AM1000 is definitely not for you then, as light it is not. you would be better served by the bafang M500/M600 motors, Frey are building some new bikes around them soon. the AM1000 uses a Reention Dorado ID1+ like battery case. To my knowledge, Frey already offers at least 3 variants, 17.5Ah 48V...

Re: Cop proof throttle

as you know, on legal EU bikes (same for the US I guess), there is a walk assist mode which allow the motor to run up to 6 kph without PAS engagement. So, another solution would be to leave the throttle in place but have the ability to reprogram the controller on the fly to limit throttle engagement...

Hello. A French biker has already bought AM1000? What was the price for transport and taxes please ? Thanks. around 400usd here shipping to France, but only for frame+motor+battery, I suspect it might be more for the complete bike as it's heavier. I'm still awaiting delivery so I don't know about V...

The AM1000 looks really cool !

Does someone know if we can get only the bare frame or frame + motor/battery from Frey ?

I'd like to use fox fork / shock & wheels I already have with it !

try wedging a small flathead screwdriver (or two) on the outside flange of the cap, then pry it out.
