Questions about E-Stream Evo 2 29” hardtail

I’m considering a used E-Stream Evo 2 29” hardtail, but found very little info on the internet about it.

The seller has it listed for $2,250 with the following description:

“Lightweight, oversized wheels and semi-fat tires, Suntour front shock w/remote lockout, suspension seat post, 250w Brose high performance BBSD motor, 17ah 48v removable, frame concealed battery, Schwalbe 29x2.8” knobby tires, rack, bottle cages, and more. She has a Shimano DEORE XT 20 speed drivetrain and Tektro Disc Brakes. She’s a beauty but I went another way. E-MTB’s are IMPOSSIBLE to find right now, so buy a gently used one and save a boatload of money! She’s a level 1 pedal assist only with a max speed around 23-25mph (she’s was “chipped” when she was new!) Ultra stable, premium brand, with true bike shop support if needed. Less than 300 miles on the bike!”


I’m concerned that I cannot find info on this bike, and couldn’t even find info on how to order a replacement battery if it needs one. With only 300 miles on the bike, should I be concerned about the battery?

It looks like the one in this video so it could be a 2017 model? Any way to tell if it the Brose S or Brose T motor?


Here are pics from the seller. It needs a good cleaning. Anything I should be concerned about, or look for?

Appreciate any advice on this.

That is a hardtail version of this bike so all the specs should be similar

https://electricbikereview.com/bulls/e-stream-evo-fs-2-27-5-plus/

I have a 2018 E stream Evo 3 hardtail

I would make sue the display works. They are around $200 assuming you can still get one.

A replacement battery is around $1k. Good news is that they are using the same battery design in newer models from what I could tell. Mine did need a replacement battery after about 5k miles but it was covered under warranty.

300 miles means nothing for the battery. It could have been stored at full charge the whole time which would reduce its life.

I would take note of the state of charge when you take a look at it. If its at 100% I would ask if it is stored that way (act like you sincerely dont know) and what his recommendation is for storing the battery. If he states 100% charge, plan on a new battery. If he says around 50% charge, your chances of getting a good battery are better as he actually know the correct answer but who knows (maybe it was stored almost empty which is even worse).

My 2018 Evo 3 cost $3600 in late 2018. The Evo 2 was available at the same time for $2800 discounted

Thank you! Pretty expensive battery! Still couldn’t find where to order one. I think we have a Bulls dealer nearby. The seller may have purchased the bike there. I’ll ask him about the battery as you suggested.
