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.
Deafcat, you mentioned that the stock seatpost was too short and Biktrix offers 2 different ones as upgrade/options & I'd like to get a suspension seatpost something like a Cane Creek ThudBuster. Wouldn't that be a better option than the 400mm Zoom? I know that they are a bit pricey but I'm sure it would improve the ride 110! What do ya think?
Well I have got the ultra/g510/m620 lol not exactly sure what it is really called but it really is impressive.
It is on a Chinese enduro alloy frame (mines branded seroxat) 160mm travel, lyrik forks, xt group, hope 4 pots, race face stem bars, 27.5 boost wheels with some pretty gnarly magic Mary tyres.
Not put mine on the scales yet but its certainly not light I guess about 60 lbs with battery but that does not matter tbh.
Iv only had it 2 weeks put about 300 trouble free miles on it so far.
In pedal assist with a 40 tooth chain ring I'm getting 30mph pretty easy on most gradients, and with the throttle touching 40mph on the flat.
It is comfy, well it will be when I change the saddle
It has a bit of understeer but this could be due to not riding a longish travel bike in so long. My other bike is a 100mm hard tail Focus S27 speed pedelec 27mph limit.
Or maybe simply because I'm going faster.
You may want to check out BPMimports.com. Look at the F-1000. It seems to have everything the Biktrix Juggernaut Ultra has for $2000 less.I have been researching a fair amount. Decided mid-drive was the way I wanted to go - for several reasons, including torque, and ease of removing wheels in case of a flat. Then I discovered the latest Bafang iteration -- their Ultra Max, or Max Ultra, @ 1000w. I weigh about 250lbs, so I thought the extra power might do me well.
But I am having a hard time finding any offerings with this motor.
Biktrix has two.
Luna has maybe one that is way past any idea of a budget -- which I think might be about $4,000, tops.
Most of the others are still offering earlier Bafang motors -- like the BBSHD.
One confusion is what the true Motor Name is...
They all seem to be different sizes or configurations of the same thing -- or different years of release. Roshan did say he is now using only the very latest version, with metal gears.
Anyone hiding any sources out there?
The "Excess" from Germany is crazy-expensive, but damned good-looking: https://www.exess-bikes.de/
Don't laugh at me, but I see no Fenders or Racks for this one, anyway -- gotta have those.
It seems like any ebike I think I'm settled on gets immediately criticized for offering only cheap components. Or components that make no sense to many of you. I read a Review that is glowing (when I can find a Review) -- and the next Review touts all the shortcomings. So I do need help understanding where you've found the real "value" ebikes. As in, decent components at a fair price -- with a mid-drive motor. Thanks, one and all!
I am thinking I need a Fat eBike for the fun of going over grass, some trail riding, sand on the beach -- and maybe snow if I get playful enough. But definitely not hunting, or Survivor Competitions trekking through Godforsaken wastelands.
You are correct, some of their bikes look just like AddMotor's line up. But when you look closer, you find that they are only similar... They don't have a 1000W folding bike with a 21ah battery with dual suspension. The bike that is similar to the F-1000 is the M-5800 and it has the BBSHD mid drive motor. The F-1000 has the newer G510 or Ultra motor and it is $500 less, and it has a front rack.Nearly All their ebikes look just like AddMotor's line up.
