    Bafang! I just can’t get past that name. Sounds like a creature of the night, but a goofy one.

    With the code, PLOUGH I assume?

    Hmmm. This or 3 xiaomi scooters?

    • +1 vote

      I ride both scooters and E bike. It depends on what you want out of it. For 5+ km commute bike will be faster as you can go up hill a bit quicker with pedals and easily up to 30,35 km on flat torrain.
      Scooters though are cheaper and lighter.

  •  

    How much does the bike weigh in kg?
    Can these be ridden legally in NSW?

    • +1 vote

      Bike will probably be around the 25kg mark.
      Yep definitely legal, that's why the assist is limited to 25kmh. You can get derestrictors which remove this, for some bikes.

  •  

    Super interested in an e-bike but the prices really put me off. Do we think it’s something that will start to come down in price as the tech improves or is this it?

    • +1 vote

      Yeah they are pretty pricey. I picked up a Giant Quick-e for about 3k earlier this year. It's brought my commute time down from 55 to 35min. That's 40 extra minutes in my day for kids, work etc so it was worth it for me. Also I get to work not as sweaty, can wear work clothes on the bike too.

      I'd say prices will come down more and more. There's more competition in the market than there was 5 years ago. The batteries are a big cost, for me my 500Wh battery is about 900 new. That should get cheaper over time. They also usually use better quality components d and which are higher rated on eBikes due to the higher weight. My disc brakes are huge, and hydraulic which feels amazing. Thick chain, spokes and big fat Schwalbe G-One tyres makes for a smooth ride.

      •  

        Oh! I was tempted at the Quick-E due to the design. How do you find the weight for its class/price? Do you carry items on a pinion?

        •  

          It's an awesome bike. Yeah heavy but all ebikes are. It's actually got the lighter Giant "aluxx" frame. With the motor, you don't notice weight at all. When you run out of charge then it feels heavy, of course.

          Do you mean pannier? Not yet but I plan to. I've got a messenger bag. The pack rack is real sturdy though.

      •  

        Interesting thanks.
        My commute is currently a 40 minute walk. I occasionally ride a lime e-bike and it takes my commute down to 10-15 minutes depending on traffic lights. As much as that’s a great saving of time, walking is free. Im not sure if a $1.5k+ bike will cut it. But I’ll be willing if they come down to sub-$1k.

    Not a bargain.

    Chinese no-name bike from online-only retailer with no workshop/service infrastructure for $1700?

    Or big name brand bike from reputable dealer with dozens of physical stores across Australia? Merida Espresso 200 E-Bike from 99 Bikes for $2k. Or Giant Lafree from any Giant dealer for $1999 RRP.

    Cheap =/= bargain.

    •  

      Aren’t bikes mostly just components slapped together on a frame design? In which case, it should be serviceable by any competent bike repair store.

      Or put another way: What makes a brand bike any different, as in what value do they uniquely add besides the frame? I do understand that if it’s the same price supporting local and a trusted brand makes sense, just not sure what to look for in a good eBike since similar branded components can be found in cheap or expensive alike..

      •  

        First up is build quality, with bigger brands wanting to ensure better workmanship. Second is after-sales support - they have brand reputation to consider. Cheapo bikes are more likely to be made with cheaper/weaker/heavier parts, and cheap manufacturers are likely to not support you well.
        While components are slapped on bikes there are dozens of types. They may say "Shimano gears" but cheapos likely have Tourney-level plastic derailleurs rather than Tiagara-level reliable ones as found on bigger brands, which are far more robust and easier to maintain. Same with brakes - cheapos tend to have no-name 3rd party brakes rather than grade-level component brakes.

        It's like cars, you can put X brand tyres and Y brand airbags and Z brand stereo and A in a Great Wall and the same things in a Mazda, which is likely to be the better car and why?

    •  

      Good point. Correct me if I am wrong but both aren't mid drive ?

      Link for Merida at $2k please?

      •  

        I just bought my second giant lafree from Ipswich giant because they did them for only $1999. That's almost as cheap as this no name bike. The merida isn't as good imo because of its less comfortable riding position. Plus the cheapest I've seen the merida is $2500. The giant lafree has a 60nm Yamaha motor that is internally belt driven so it is whisper quiet like the brose motor. It has slope sensors as well so it detects and automatically adjusts assistance for hills. I don't think any other ebike has that. Nice hydraulic disc brakes. we are getting 90kms of range with the lafree. I originally bought one for my wife, but then got one for myself as well because it was mind blowingly good. Check out the review for it at bike exchange. They liken it to riding a leather recliner it's that nice of a ride. Anyway I'm a bit of a fanboy going on a rant at this point. Have fun whatever you decide to purchase :)

      •  

        Oh and the merida is only 45nm of torque but the lafree is 60nm and belt driven.

      Obviously you are not into custom ebikes. Bafang make some of the most prolific DIY ebike kits on the market. Spend a bit of time on ebike forums and you will see just how many enthusiasts use them. I myself have built 3 different bikes using their kits. Definitely not a no name brand, and their performance and ease of use make them very popular.

  •  

    If anyone is seriously interested in these then note there are 3 different size options - 16, 18 & 20 inch. The link with this post is for the 18 inch. You need to search for the other listings and then look at the Item Specifics section to see frame size. I didn't notice any frame dimensions or height ranges of riders for each size. Getting a properly fitted bike is very important to ride comfort - especially if you plan on doing a lot of peddling. This is another service that you get from your local bike store.

  •  

    Lot to look at in the specs, and I'm in the market for an e-bike before years end.

    If there's one thing to that a noob should look out for in an e-bike what would it be?

    Like a computer would be the processor I guess, or tv the screen(led, lcd, oled)

    • +1 vote

      This is my second ebike. Started with the aldi ebike. I would say first determine what you want to use it for.
      Battery and motor configuration are important. Otherwise brand name components will suffice for entry level.
      If you are year end I like the Reid urban + a lot . Currently out of stock but support confirm September

    Bafang MAX-01 Drive System. 36V/250W
    Not legal in vic I guess…
    A pedal cycle with one or more auxiliary propulsion motors attached which has a combined maximum power output not exceeding 200 watts.

  • +1 vote

    If you're reasonably handy, you can assemble one for a fraction of the price. I bought a good bike off gumtree for $200, got a TSDZ2 mid drive kit for $440 from pswpower (better than the bafang kits for this power since it has actual torque sensing) and made a battery pack from two bunnings ozito batteries that were $40 each. Total build was about $750-800, and I have two extra batteries for my battery tools too.

    •  

      Sounds alright. Is this just as simple as hooking up the two batteries in series? Got any pics of your setup?

      • +2 votes

        Yeah, just hooking them up in series with a switch, fuse, and plug, and then plugged into the motor. Pic here.

        •  

          Cool. Hope you don't mind being quizzed. Do you get much range/runtime out of them? (I have also stocked up on Ozito 4ah's so shouldn't really be an issue)

          • +1 vote

            @runtoparadise: No problem. It's probably hard to compare range because mine is a pedal assist with a control to set the assist level. I've never run out of batteries in a single ride, but after 8km of general riding on the middle assist level with hills it reads about 1/2 charge, so maybe 15km to a charge. So it's a small pack, but it's good enough for me and will get me to work when the weather gets a bit warmer.

        •  

          Looks like a neat/professional build. (Y)
          Have you covered your process/experience in a blog of a forum somewhere? I would be keen to see more.
          Did you have to do any 3D printing for the battery assembly?

        •  

          btw, Ozito now has an ebike in its powerXchange lineup: https://www.bunnings.com.au/ozito-power-x-change-2-x-18v-5-2...

          • +1 vote

            @ripprind: Interesting to see Ozito's effort, it looks pretty nice - a bit pricey though.

            No blog, but I might put something up on youtube some time. No 3d printing required, I made the mounts out of the Ozito USB power staions, and just pulled out the usb electronics. Wired them in series, add a switch and a fuse, and that's it. I made some little cut-outs from an aluminium bar to mount them to, and mounted that with the bike's drinkbottle mounting screws.

    How does this compare to the bolt ebike from Anaconda for $999?

    •  

      The anaconda bike is probably better value, but it's not as good. The anaconda one is a hub drive - it's effectively a single gear for the electric motor. The Bafang motor listed above is a mid drive, so when you change gears it changes gears for the electric motor too, so its better for anything other than flat ground.
