Got something to sell? Have extra parts that need a good home? Have something that others would need to complete their kits? Post it up here and see if anyone else is searching for what you are selling.

I have contacted Ivy at Frey and priced a Bafang Ultra AM 1000 bike to ship I went with price conscience options 150 mm travel. I figured you need high end components when your peddling to keep it ultra light not as critical with a large motor since this unit weighs a bunch any way. I also went with shipping over water instead of air and found I could ship three bikes for less than one air freight to USA shipping to San Diego ( Costs $250 per bike) . If anybody is interested in sharing shipping costs please let me know. I know some of you all have air freighted the bikes for over $ 850 to USA. Great savings of over $ 500. I am not sure how to work out particulars but I would ship to my company address I could ship from there we have a UPS account. You all would be responsible for the freight the rest of the way. Usually less than $ 100 but I can get exact UPS quotes to any destination. This would be shipped FOB factory and shipper would be responsible for any damage if it occurred . WE would inspect before we sign for the bikes. It seems these bikes are very well packaged so should not be a issue . Thanks for the vine. IF any body needs reference I have been a seller in e bay since 2003 I have a excellent references under surfingjef My company web site www.aairpurification.com since 1988 .

It’s like alacart depends on the the compoenents but their web site is accurate the base range starts at $2 k and goes up to 3 k . I just don’t think you need a lot of high end parts . As long as it shifts and stops . It’s just a fun bike I already have SWorks Specilaize that I ride all the time . This electric bike is just for some fun trying not to break the bank . So I’m on the low end of the range . I do want to make sure it’s strong like threaded axles instead of quick release . The fork should have lock out air Shock not cheap springs and damping control tapered aluminum steer tube and 150 mm is plenty of travel . Also I like 27” x 3” plus tires . I’m still working out the details for final price . The motor is what makes this bike special .

I just looked up the Volton pretty cool bike $ 3500 pretty nice deal buying in USA has its advantages . It has the same similar components as I am looking at with Frey same Recon Shocks they have 140 mm IM getting 150 mm, same Shimano Deore shifters Frey is 10 Volton is 9 speed , same brakes Tektro 180 mm , im going with Chinese cheaper tires they have brand name tire Maxis , Volton has 14.5 ahr, Frey with 17.5 Ahr battery , Volton has maybe better wheels Im still working on my set up. Also Volton 750 watts compared to Frey 1000 not sure if there is a difference or is it listed that way in US to keep in compliance with all the laws which limit to 750 watts. Here is the big Difference landed costs if two to three units ordered by ship would be $1000 lower by Frey .. Im hoping duty is not much could be $ 100 or nothing if anybody can comment on that would be nice. So if anybody wants to buy a Frey same time share costs to ship to save money per my previous post drop me a pm .

Another option is the M2S Bikes same 750 watt Ultra at $ 2950 USA made no plus tires only 2.4 " width x 27.5 . See below. They also have a Fat tire version. My friend got a less expensive fat tire one for $ 1600, 750 watt hub motor it was fun ride with throttle . See below skinny tire and fat tire versions same ultra mid drive .

I bought an ebike from China for around $2400 and the duty was about $265.

Duty on electric bike from China to USA was listed at 0% from what I have looked up. Items under $200 are also not taxed. Duty can range from 5-12%. I found this in Chinaimportal.com
