Mr. Lee says the medium frame will be available in March with the small and large following in May or later. He also says 40lbs or less is achievable with light wheels.

Yes but the DIY emtb market is very small. Not very many of us in the world. Company's have to invest a lot to make the molds so they are going to make the most popular first to get a return on their investment. Just good business.

An Chainstay Protector and an extra hanger as gift,

Motor M820+ BT F14 is about USD$1200,now cannot confirm it, the bafang company is in holiday now, also we have no supply it, but we can introduce you the bafang's agent.

They will not be stocking and supplying rear shocks because they have to import them and it would cost more to supply them than the customer getting them locally.

Hello everyone, jim is here!

In March, we will find a way to order and stock some M820 motor and battery kits for low-volume buyers, and now we are still negotiating with Bafang company, Bafang company will assemble two EMTB with our LCE930 frame in March for the exhibition.

In addition, we are also looking for reliable suppliers for the extended battery ( bottle cage battery). At present, it seems that with 21700 batteries, the maximum capacity can be 36V* 10.5ah,

In addition, in order to allow personal buyers and small quantuty buyers to get the frame faster, we are going to launch a group purchase plan. Because of the company's operating policy, we will supply the frame to batch customers in a limited amount, so I will submit an order for every 20 frames.

By the way, now only three sizes in plan, no size XL, because for a new carbon fiber frame, the cost of the mold is high, so only two or three sizes, and if someone request other size with a good quantity, we will consider make more, sorry for that.

That’s great news!
Buying a kit with motor and battery would be awesome

A full frame kit + motor from one source would be very nice. Keep us updated. Thanks

I have made a simple drawing bellow, LCE930 frame + 180mm dropper post from OneUp. 200mm of insertion length is a bit low but 180mm dropper might fit OK.

Peter

yes, The dropper seatpost we design is fit for 180mm, mot 200m, In fact, the design positioning of the LCE930 is an EMTB with all-terrain passing capability, rather than a heavy-duty EMTB. the travel's date is under enduro EMTB, it's all mountain, the drooper seat post 180mm is enough.,
