Hmm, I didn't realize it has the option for 29" wheels. Now I'm re-thinking that!
One thing I’d be concerned about it the ease of removing the battery. Looks like it comes out from the bottom so a larger wheel may require you to turn the wheel to the side to get the battery in and out.29" wheel is available, the width of the tire must less than 2.2".
Hi there Paul. I bought my AM1000 v5 a year ago and have done over 800 miles on it now. I’ve reprogrammed it, opened it up and regreased it and I run it with a 52V 17.5ah battery. I bought it with two of the 52V batteries. They charge to 58.8V. The recommendation is to take the 48V 21ah battery though as the BMS is more stable and there have been less issues with them but to date I’ve had no issues with mine. Micah’s a friend of mine that I spent a lot of time with, riding these bikes in China. It’s very well worth everyone checking out his channels and articles as they are very good on all aspects.I also purchased an additional 52v17.5ah battery and charger.
I would like to mention that the bikes have been shipping with a 48v21ah battery which is standard for the Ultra motor.
However, there are several sources that state that the 52v17.5 battery option is not only compatible with the Ultra motor, it actually performs better. Micah Toll gave a nice explanation in one of his videos if you’re interested.
Hey tomdav! I’d suggest making sure it’s coming with the chain catcher - I think they’re all pretty much shipping as standard with these now. I also recommend to my customers to get the gear sensor. This is a little gadget that senses when you change gear (up or down) and momentarily cuts the power to the motor. It’s a bit of a fail safe device to stop you mashing the gears and chain. Finally it’s probably also worth getting an extra derailleur hanger as these are bespoke to the bike and it can be a common breakage if you crash heavily on the right hand side of the bike. You’ll see that this is exactly what I did when jumping on Frey’s new demo EX at the Brave Peak Bike Park in China. The bike came off a lot better than me and whilst I crashed on the right hand side of the bike the derailleur hanger was actually fine. Still worth getting one with your bike though as they are only low cost. Cheers!Wondering what else I could be missing?
