I purchased a $680 FULL carbon frame direct from China, with a HUGE 840Wh battery. It’s called the Dengfu E10. I Paired with a Bafang M500 Motor rated at 95Nm torque, massive 840Wh internal battery. This bike looks like it could be the ULTIMATE electric enduro mountain bike at reasonable pricing.
If you’d like to see more details, I have a full build thread over at EMTB Forums including full breakdown of parts costs, frame supplier etc.

Also a BIG thanks to MOSHON-E and APickup for support and help with the build and paint process
Doing a DIY build like this also has negatives. It takes a fairly long time to build, shop for parts etc, especially in the current situation with delayed / restricted stock! You need tools etc, time to build. And not the best support when you need help. Warranty etc will also take time if I need it. BUT its very rewarding building your own! And you can choose the parts that you really like.
For many folks, a direct / shop bought bike is by far the best option, all things considered. Yes, you spend more, but the support is (usually) much better. But great to see this DIY build as a feasible option for those who would like to give it a go.
