At first glance I thought it included a bike, until I scrolled down and saw the possible applications pictures. Still looks like a very good deal with the big battery! I didn't notice a turn around time or expected delivery time.Mea Culpa.....the ad is for the mid drive and battery only....still a possible good deal depending on price and delivery.
I think you answered your own question. A turn key kit, mountable battery and bike of your choice. A sub $1,000 ebike should be doable, if not now, soon.
You still need a decent bike if it's to hold together. The extra weight and speed mean every pothole and curb impact is greater than cheap bikes are made to handle. Much less cheap brakes. You can build a sub 1,000 bike now, no problem with unknown Chinese parts. I'd still spend 1,500 and get good stuff.

Not sure if this is a scam on Alibaba, but it does look suspect.

Just wondering how much weight does the battery boxes add to your bike(s)?I'm glad to see you got your Cannondale finished. Sourcing Bafang components can be a strange and bewildering ordeal. My first purchase of two mid-drive BBS02's was direct from Bafang. I've searched for better pricing on a constant basis (for the last 1.5 years) and have found that delivered pricing from a lot of sources falls pretty much within a narrow range. On my third and fourth conversions I decided to use em3ev because the pricing was reasonable, the shipping was fast and Paul is a very knowledgeable seller. Since I now have 6 electric bikes and it's just myself and my wife riding, I think my conversion days are behind me........unless something new and groundbreaking arrives, then I'll be back at it again . I built my own battery boxes to accommodate "brick" LiFePO4 packs, primarily because bricks can be had for relatively less money at higher capacity. I've had good luck buying them from two vendors on Ebay. Have fun riding, it's what it's all about!!!!!!
That might be the problem. I'm using a Chromebook and by phone at the current time.Resizing

Sorry you are leaving the building game, but maybe you have enough. I picked up a LiFePo. It took 9 weeks to get here. I guess it wasn't the vendor you used, on Ebay, but it ended up being $260 for a 15AH and 36v battery. It says "Sun Thing", which may be a common brand. I've run the pack down and checked the voltages and the amps out. Looks pretty good, very close to advertised capacity. I had to cut off the connectors, but that was it.
The research stuff says these are 2,000 cycle batteries. If you can stop charging at 80%, I don't know how long they would last. I understand that the size would be a problem for most people but if you can make the size and weight work, they seem like a good deal. Since they are big cells, there are no parallel strings, just 12 in series. That makes it easy to see a problem if one cell goes bad.
I have a Prodeco X3 with Lifepo batteries, and after 2 years it seems very close to original capacity. I think the packs get bounced enough to eventually fail from the connections, or some internal fault, but Lifepo is safer if things go bad.
I guess you could sell something. That BD frame with the rear Mac seems like an interesting bike.
It says "Sun Thing"
I believe I read that you were building the boxes out of wood... Have you ever tried the canvas type battery bags to save on weight? Not that u had to, I was just wondering. lol
