    Juggernaut Ultra Battery Management System

    I charge my 52V reention pack with 5A thru the typical barrel jack, no issues.... also going to 88% charge typical on Satiator.

    Jugernaut Ultra 1000 - Dutch commuter style w/ integrated lights

    Mass production bike accessory/option... Sounds like something a bike manufacturer should produce! Or perhaps integrate into future bikes...

    Swapped my 44T chainring for a 52T

    Actually it's not a difficult part to get these days, Biktrix stocks em as do a few others.

    Swapped my 44T chainring for a 52T

    IMO, 58T is really pushing it for momentary torque loads. I'm sure his motor has steel gears, but that's not where the risk is... It's the output clutch that will be destroyed by overloading it (different from the pedal freewheel in the motor). Be careful with that throttle from a complete stop...

    Swapped my 44T chainring for a 52T

    Maintain it for as long as I like, assuming the lights stay green, nobody cuts me off, no pedestrians crossing, and so forth. But generally I keep the speed around 40-45 km/h on the street, more efficient.

    Swapped my 44T chainring for a 52T

    Speed sensor is on the rear wheel, it's not affected by anything but the wheel diameter setting. Top speed verified by city radar speed check, 55 km/h on flat ground, but I can easily push it to 60 km/h.

    Swapped my 44T chainring for a 52T

    Very nice, I run a Wolftooth 50T and really like it.

    Jugernaut Ultra 1000 - Dutch commuter style w/ integrated lights

    Nicely done and excellent write-up, especially concerning the lighting circuit modifications. I'll be doing some soon, so it's much appreciated on component selection!

    New Bafang Ultra - 1000W Torque sensored motor!

    In theory, about 1700 watts peak, with a 30-amp capable fully charged 52V pack, or 1500W with a 48V pack.

    Bafang Ultra Max Mid-Drive Options?

    Yep not including battery. And yes the FS is a much heavier bike.

    Bafang Ultra Max Mid-Drive Options?

    Just weighed my Ultra 1000, also just shy of 52 pounds, two pound bias to the rear wheel.

    Bafang Ultra Max Mid-Drive Options?

    I've never felt the need to get a suspension seatpost, but they definitely work. So do titanium, carbon, and broached aluminum (thompson elite) seatposts for that matter... The longer the seatpost extension, the more flex they provide, which adds to saddle compliance for a smoother ride...

    Bafang Ultra Max Mid-Drive Options?

    Hmm, that seems like a high weight figure... I'll put mine on the scales this weekend if I get a chance. The bike actually feels quite light for what it is, may also come down to the well balanced weight distribution too.

    Bafang Ultra Max Mid-Drive Options?

    Hmm, mine actually came with the SRAM NX 11 speed, wonder if that's been changed? Might have to inquire with Biktrix about that to be certain. The SRAM shifting is incredibly quick and precise, very robust components, although not without its maintenance requirements (chain and cassette wear)...

    Bafang Ultra Max Mid-Drive Options?

    Clancy, right on man! If you have any other questions bout it, hit me up. I know you will have a blast with the bike, for pretty much any use case. The combo of great assist modes, torque sensing, thumb throttle, lots of torque and great programming from Biktrix really set it apart from the...
