Hi guys new here,

Im thinking of buying this frame on aliexpress, price seems cheap.



https://www.aliexpress.com/item-img/2015-Latest-Design-BXT-Brand-MTB-Carbon-Frame-29er-Mountain-Bikes-Carbon-Mtb-Frame-Multiple-Colors/32499899961.html?spm=2114.10010108.1000017.2.fc002f8XL45wG#

does anyone know if this frame is an exact copy of any other well known brands?

They are also on ebay.  I'm interested in their Canyon Aeroad frame, called the Aroad.  I'd be interested to see if anyone has purchased one and can give some details.  I did email them through ebay last night and got a pretty quick response.  I'm going to see if I can get some additional photos of the frame.

Oh. Just checked and the bafang is a touch over $700.. a bit higher than I expected it to be. I was guessing $400ish

Thanks Sitar_ned,
I will post a tread if I find a suitable frame for my build. Bafang is the undisputed king for DIY ebike community(BBS series) and best bang for your buck. Their new generation motors with integrated tourqe sensor are on par with big players Bosch, Shimano, Brose, Yamaha...and have many advantages in price, throttle option, DIY battery, open software, more power, easy availability. We just need modern geometry quality frames with short chain stay, boost rear spacing, intube battery space...then we can build excellent DIY ebikes :)

Ah, okay.. So the motor tech is there and affordable we're just waiting for some frame options. Well, hopefully the demand is enough to make that happen.

Thanks for the info.

    What race face chainring did you get to work with the XT crank? I can only find Shimano compatible. [/li][/list]

    Do you know the brand Garbaruk?

    These are great: https://r2-bike.com/GARBARUK-Chainring-Round-1-speed-narrow-wide-BCD-96-Shimano-XT-M8000-Crank-34-teeth-black
    If you like oval: https://r2-bike.com/GARBARUK-Chainring-Melon-oval-1-fach-narrow-wide-LK-96-Shimano-XT-M-8000-Kurbel

    They sell direct too: http://garbaruk.com/products/chainrings/round/bcd/96-asymm.html but are slightly more expensive

    Cool. I'll check Garbaruk out and let you know. If their shipping isnt too much to get to US, I'll probably go that route.

    Hey There - Awesome build. I'm new and have a couple questions. I sent a note off to Peter and am hoping to replicate your setup, to a degree, mainly with different suspension (if possible).

    Questions:

    Awesome looking project.
    I am really close to buying one myself.
    Can you tell me what tyre size you use?

    The M901 is the BSA version of M-009 isn't it?
    Did you ask Tideace if they provide a BSA version?

    Labeling a frame S-works is misleading.
    As it isn't a Specialized frame at all.
    It is not a good sign to me IPLAY is doing that.
