Hi,

There are 2 ways to deliver to EU for single bikes. By air or by train. if by air, usually bike and battery sent separately. the local charge is about 100-200USD as we leart from customers.
If you concern about the tax to EU. there is another tranportation way for choice. that is go by train DDP to your address. all cost and tax included. about 500-550USD depend on the place. shipping time is about 35 days from our place to your hand after we delivery.
Hope my info is helpful to you.

Regards,
Ivy

Hi guys!
I could not find any information on anti-dumping duty issues!? Has anyone who imported this bike in EU paid this special additional tax?
I would like to buy one myself, but last year I was striked with 84% of anti-dumping duty (+8% regular duty + 20% vat) on a full electric bike as such.
I bought one and had it delivered to me in the United Kingdom (still part of the EU I think 😂). I paid 3.4% customs tax / duty on the overall price of what I paid to Frey (including the credit card fee that I opted to pay for security).
That's definitely a bargain :D
Maybe UK didn't enforce those anti-dumping duties like other EU regulations (driving with lights on during the day for example)


Anyone else from the EU?

Sorry for the late entry into this thread. I like this bike a lot and can see it in my future. I think Frey have covered most bases in my eyes. Just one glaring omission. No dropper seat post!! All modern quality MTB's have dropper seat posts. At least make make sure cabling can be internally run and option is available.

Looks amazing!! Those dates work perfectly for me! Two hours to the park isn’t so bad as it’ll take me ~16 hours to get to China in the first place from England!

I’ll book my flights 😎
非常感谢你

Paint job and branding feedback:

Good: I like the Frey logo on the side. It does a good job at transitioning to the black motor enclosure. Stealthy, yet attractive.

Bad: I hate the logo on the top tube. See https://youtu.be/-5SQuy3tkRs. The “M600 2.0” part isn’t cool. When I’m riding I want to look down at a logo that makes be feel like I’m riding a bad ass bike, not a Dell Computer.

Consider renaming the bike. M600 is the name of the motor, But you’re the entire package. An experience. Be original.

I like the name “Summit” because this bike will always take me to the top.

If you redesign the AM1000, consider renaming it to something that conveys maximum power. I like “Peak”. In English, it has dual meanings. Mountain peak (May be higher than a summit). Peak power (e.g. max watts).

An Announcement from FREY:

Due to the needs of some demands, we have separately sold some AM1000 frames before, and told customers if only purchase frame not complete bike, we do not provide relevant after-sales service. After get confirmation from customer, then we accept the frame order. But due to different hands-on ability, professional knowledge and skills, and personal different bike components, individuals may encounter some difficulties and troubles during building, maintaining and using the bike which may not easy to handle, and if it is not complete bike from us, we cannot control the bike quality and performance, so it is impossible to provide relevant after-sales service as complete bike. And we also can’t support well when they have difficulty in the process of assembling and using the bike, all above may cause some not easy experience.
Therefore, we decided that from August 1st,2019, FREY has completely stopped the sale of the separate AM1000 frame, and hereby announces.

Dear Frey - I think this is such an excellent idea and it must be a first for the eBike manufacturers in China. It’s really great for such an event to be organised and also gives good opportunity to those that have your bikes to provide feedback to help with future development. Are there any ‘teasers’ you can give about your new 2020 models or are they remaining top secret until next month? 😆

I bought an AM1000 earlier this year and it’s been excellent. The order process, delivery and after sales support provided through Grace have been very good. I’ve been playing with the gearing a little bit and increased the size of the chainring (from 40T, to 42T and now 46T) - for me this now puts it in my sweet spot as 60% of the time I am in the middle cog on the rear cassette (optimal chainline) but have the flexibility of the higher and lower ranges if I’m going fast on-road or making steep ascents off-road. It also means the running gear should last me longer. I’ve done 300miles of varied riding on mine without any problems. With that revised gearing it now does 40mph on the flat!
