    I bought a Bafang Ultra full suspension fat bike from

    So I recently bought a full suspension fat ebike with a 1000 Watt Bafang Ultra mid drive from a seller on At the time there were not many options for a fat bike with the ultra, either that or I didn't search enough, probably a little bit of both.

    I have to admit I didn't do too much research on what components and what not I wanted, I figured I would get the full suspension and that I could change out any components I wanted later on. I did get the hydraulic brake upgrade for $50 and an extra battery for $265. Of course after I agreed to the $265 price she comes right back and adds another $50 for shipping so if you go this route be sure to get the whole price including shipping before agreeing to a price :D. The shipping for the bike from China to my house in California was $567.00. They sent it by UPS and it took only a few days. The bike came out to $1349 before shipping. After I got the bike there was a customs duty that I had to pay to UPS for around $260 before they would release the bike. I heard other people didn't get hit with customs duty, so I am not sure what that is all about, maybe they were honest when they declared the value? I also got a couple of extra derailleur hangers for $12 each. The grand total for everything was $2565.00. Dealing the the seller's customer service rep had some challenges. I explain some of that in this video I made for youtube:

    Ultimately I am very happy with this bike. The torque on it is incredible, it just tears right up any hill like nothing, and I weigh 200 pounds. If I were to do it again I would have got a rear cassette with better climbing gear because where I live the trails are steep and long. I think that is one of the first things I am going to upgrade I just have to do some research on what to get (any suggestions for a 8 speed with a climbing gear?).

    Here is the spec sheet for the bike:

        Yes, the batteries were shipped from a US address for some reason.
