    Thank you all for your replies. I'll find out how the SlipNot snow chains work this coming winter. I live on a pretty big hill so I'll try to post back then. I'll also get back in about a year to give a more experienced review. All I can say is that I'm quite pleased being able to go up my 1 mile hill (I'm around 250 pounds) at 20+ mph with about 30 pounds of groceries and with minimal to no pedaling. So far, the bike has met and exceeded my expectations for the price point. I really like the quick releases and the cirrus body float (but need to get the orange springs). So far, so good.

    Bafang uses the DPC18 for other offerings besides BBSxx. In theory these values can be populated with a BMS that talks to the controller and relays this info to the display, although as far as I know no production bike using a Bafang solution offers this, OEM or otherwise, and neither the battery nor the BBSHD itself has the capability to take advantage of it.

    Since Bafang is the largest motor supplier in the world they are trying to shoehorn this into their existing displays so they can eventually market a more integrated system where they supply not only the motor and a few components but basically the whole package using a one-size-fits-all approach. It does not apply to stuff built by Luna. This sort of thing is more marketed towards the seemingly endless stream of china-based companies wanting to offer an electric bike without a lot of development costs or technical knowhow, and the low power bike manufacturers in Europe.

    If you look at the sort of ebikes coming out of europe it's all pretty much the same: very low power by american standards (literally a fraction of the power of that alite wolf), comparatively cheap to produce given they don't need much capacity or ruggedness, and typically using one of the integrated solutions such as provided by Bosch. That's what Bafang is aiming for with the DPC revision, they want to replace Bosch as the supplier of these sort of integrated solutions. But who knows, maybe we'll see it used on the Ultra Max someday.

    A lot of that stuff is for future development because it has no access to the BMS.
    And I never heard of bike tire chains but sounds like a super idea.

    Hi, this is my first ebike. In fact, it's the first bike I've ridden in a number of decades. I recently purchased the 2018 Wolf Alite. First off, I'm very pleased with the bike, but time will tell how it holds up, especially this winter with SlipNots.

    My question to the community is this. I understand that the 52V Wolfpack has a custom battery management system (BMS). The main display seems to work fine and the ebike performs well, however I notice that when I drill down into the DPC18 Display Menu, the information items are listed, but there are no values for them. Should these fields be populated with values? If so, there's something wrong with the system or user, probably the user:) In the former case, I need to submit a trouble ticket and in the latter case, well, I guess I'm in for some friendly chiding.
