The postage price is relative to how many parts you buy, more parts = more postageI would double check with the seller though, to make sure it comes with the sensor ring.
Also, it might be worth browsing through their parts list and buying any other spares you think you could need in the future. Parts are usually cheap, but postage can be expensive for small items, so pile it all in one order.
Electric bikes have never been a cheap hobby, although my wife thinks it isHave already been in touch with them and dozens of other companies at home and around the world!, Anna Lee their sales manager replied they do not sell the ring on its own and they are checking to see if the drive shaft has the ring fitted, £60 with postage for the shaft just for a magnetic ring!
Bafang Europe and China were completely dis-interested!
They must have changed their delivery policies. It used to be based on weight, so you could add a few cheap, lightweight parts and not pay any extra in postage.The postage price is relative to how many parts you buy, more parts = more postage
The shaft cost is £33 + £27.68 postage if I add a bearing set on for the shaft at £12.29 the postage goes up to £35.29 total so an increase of £7.61 postage just for a couple of bearingsThey must have changed their delivery policies.

It was handy for adding nuts, bolts, bearings etc, that you might have needed sometime in the motor's life.
I don't so much mind the £60 and can well afford it but I begrudge paying that when just the ring is broken, the rusty looking shaft was caused by water ingress emulsifying with whatever grease was in there, look at pics now it has been cleaned, its like new.
That's a shame, not like the good old days. I blame BrexitThe shaft cost is £33 + £27.68 postage if I add a bearing set on for the shaft at £12.29 the postage goes up to £35.29 total so an increase of £7.61 postage just for a couple of bearings
I know I used to work as an engineer in the car manufacturing world, the best I had was £39 for a 8 x 60 bolt for my Mercedes, I replied is it gold plated and he replied thats for fitting as well!!!That's a shame, not like the good old days. I blame Brexit
It's getting to be the same with cars. Used to pay a tenner for a wheel bearing. Now they all seem to be incorporated into the hub assembly and you have to buy the whole lot. Kerching kerching
Heating or welding magnets can destroy there properties, epoxy is going to temporarily be the way I thinkOK. Explains a lot about the brutal start un programmed BBSs seem to have. Trex told me the GSM has the same PAS system and that it is very hard to source parts.
Cant you just weld the ring? Or epoxy the magnetic bits into the slots on your shaft?
