Well while I have not purchased an M600 system yet, all previous versions of the Bafang motors have been programable. It typically is done through the LCD interface while turned off. So really you just need to match the cable connection from the LCD to the motor and USB on the other end. Lunacycle has often had the right cable the times I needed them. You will just have to wait until you get the bike to see the connector and take a picture to see what sort of interface you need.Surfingjeff wrote: ↑Jul 28 2018 1:14amThe battery quote was part of my quote for the entire Dengfu bike I’m guessing here but must be 14S 4-5P dependent on LG cell they are using 14.7 ahr . This is mounted with hardware they had a line drawing and some pictures of a key lock . They will have the whole sample bike built up in two days . The shock is Rock Shock MNRP RC3 (200x57mm)$293 But here is the Kicker Ivy at Frey said the Bafang M 600 is limited to 35kph ! By the provided controller . Umm does that mean I need to reprogram I have no idea my M2s with Bafang 500 watt hub motor bike already was hot wired but not sure about M600 . I’m asking Dengfu ask Bafang if options to have off road mode is what it’s called. The only other option is Grin Technology Cycle analyst 3.0 and wiring harness made in Germany for Bafang with correct connectors for plug and play .but add $250 . Any thoughts anybody reprogrammed Bafang ? Why would the ultra be unlimited and the M600 be governed to such slow speed? I’ll have up to date pictures on the other post Dengfu Carbon Fiber bike with Bafang M 600 mid drive in couple days .Drop Dead Fred wrote: ↑Jul 27 2018 5:14pmThey are actually all out of Shimano and only 1 Bafang left as it is 2 separate frames. While it is virtually the same frame the motor mount system is casted differently. I attached a spec sheet from another vendor but selling the same frames. So not sure who really is making this frame system. Melody is offering the last frame (Bafang) with free headset if you want to jump on it.Surfingjeff wrote: ↑Jul 27 2018 6:40amIt’s either one they make frame that can accomdate both .

I'm guessing that with the Shimano Steps the motor is slightly shorter as you can get a 55mm travel rather than a 51mm equating to 151mm vs 135mm for the Bafang of wheel travel. I mean that is what 16mm so 5/8" not that big of deal.
Surfing Jeff, where did you get the battery as I have not found one yet, the main reason why I have not ordered the frame yet? Also where did you get a rear shock, 200*51mm?
And do you have a picture? Really would like see this built up!
As far a 35kph, that is 21 mph which 20mph is the legal limit to be classified as either a Class 1 or Class 2 ebike. Class 1 being no throttle is allowed on multiple trail systems. I don't know of anyone allowing a Class 2 bike. When I ride my AM1000 on a trail allowing class 1 bikes I disconnect the throttle and make it a class 1 bike.
If an ebike is not limited to 20mph or 35kph then it is in violation of federal laws for classification of use on trail systems allowing ebikes along with other bikes. If all you are going to ride are 4wd off road trails then by all means you can open it up for as fast as you like. But if you hit the trails designed for mountain bikes that allow ebikes with a bike that can go 35 - 50 mph you are breaking the law and actually doing what all the naysayers are saying ebikers will do. And will only serve to get us completely banned in the future, another reason why manufacturers are presetting to 35kph. My AM1000 is programmed to 35kph\20mph and I have never even been close to that climbing in single track. With most of the trails I ride climbing above 6 - 8 mph is actually pretty dangerous. But hey each to his own.
My biggest thing is if you want to ride single track please be courteous out there and most people won't have an issue. I have found if you are very courteous most people don't even notice you're on an ebike. I think the biggest fear from people is that Strava Weenies will get these bikes and make it more dangerous on trails that they are not courteous on to begin with.
Sorry to be so long winded, I just get worried when people want to juice up their bikes and then go ride single track. I'm ok with it on the streets but these M600 bikes are designed for single track and in the US we are just starting to make some headway in getting access that purists are fighting. Please don't give them more ammunition is all I ask cause I'm old guy that just likes to be on his bike....
Bottom line be safe and enjoy your riding!
