hey @bob armani we're not sure on the Carbons yet. We have several people asking about them.
We're working on the Chicago area as we'll be there in August for the Electric Bike Expo tour. Let us know if you have a favorite shops we should check out.
If you can provide a link to some of the feedback you're referring to on the EVO FS 27.5 seatpost, I'll look into it. The Brose motors are definitely on par with Bosch and Yamaha. Many even prefer them for their smooth delivery and silent power. For some who are used to Yamaha and Bosch, they may take some getting used to as the respond best to consistent cadence and torque. They may also seem to assist less in lower settings than higher, but again this is likely due to rider cadence.
We don't have any plans at this point (that I'm aware of) to partner with Yamaha, but stay tuned for new partnershipsi have been

I agree with your comments. These are some great ideas and they need to invest in this dynamic to help support and market their products. I love Bulls products and design and also met the guys behind Bulls at the trade show. A great group of guys out of the California office. I have also asked some of the LBS in my area to consider carrying the brand. We have a lot to look forward to with the evolving ebikes in our local bike shops.
trying to contact them for dealership and haven’t received any response in over a week

Hi Adam,
I have an
LACUBA EVO E45 STEP-THRU
and have several questions::
1) the Bulls website says that this bike has 3 modes, Eco, Tour, Sport. Mine has 4 modes and they all work. What is the 4th mode?
2) What are the boost levels for each mode?
3) I bought mine from a dealer while I was traveling last August and got minimal support since I didn't stay around. Is there a software update?
4) The distance displayed is slightly off. Is there any way to adjust the circumference of the wheels?
5) The closest tubes I can find are 700-45, will they work ok?
6) I would like to use skinnier tires, what is the smallest I can safely use, 700x??.

Thanks in advance
Doug Coats

Hi, Adam.
I am a Bulls emtb owner and fan. The product is great and offers great value.

My Concern: I bought a 2018 Evo AM-4.
By any chance, is there a known issue with the battery charger and battery for the 2018 model year?
After only charges, the battery will now only charge up to 80% (as indicared by the display). Also, now the charger does not appear to click on unless I first place the battery on the bike, then turn battery on and off, then take it off the bike, and then plug the charger back into it.
note: I knew the charger was not actually turning on because it would run for 6 hours plugged into the battery yet battery status would remain the same)
??

Is that a known issue ?

I had that issue with my FS3 and e45.
Both where dirty pins, i cleaned the pond with tooth brush both connections on battery and the charger and it worked fine.
Would do it after a wet ride, i also notices the pins getting a little green in color.

Interesting. Thank you. I'll try your suggestion (though my bike/battery is almost brand new and still pretty pristine -spotless).
.... So your battery only charged up to 80% also ?

The e45 would only charge 70-80%. Fs3 wouldn’t charge at all.
They both had the same battery.
But you may have a bad cell or two in your battery or BMC.

Thx. I also read elsewhere to troubleshoot in this exactly this order: charger, ports, bms, then battery. Don't know if that's true (as I've got no electrical background).
So, time to find another charger and test that out ..

I read BULLS E-STREAM EVO AM 4 27.5+ Review and made a comment below which disappear or is not approved yet?!

Anyway, another user made a good comment about the new 750W battery. In review is stated that is Nickel Cobalt Aluminum (NCA), USA web page is not telling about chemistry but EU web page describe it as "Lithium Ionen". Review contains picture of the batter but resolution is not good enough to read specs.

Court or someone else, could you please check what type of chemistry the new 750W battery is?

Hmm, looks like that is Lithium Nickel Cobalt Aluminum Oxide and even improved version over other Lithium batteries...

Another detail gained my attention, power button and indicator are on the bottom side of the battery. Not really protected and looks like that can be easily damaged during ride on technical trails.
