Bafang BBSHD 48V 1000W 68MM Mid Drive Motor Kit

Ordered this unit to give my handmade 29er Bamboo Bike a bit of a boost off-road. Ordered with BBS Hydralic gear shifting sensor and a DPC14 LCD Colour display. Also a Hailong-3 48V 12Ah Lithium Ion Frame battery. The order took about 7 days to arrive and received it just before Xmas. I must admit that I was pleasantly surprised on how well and careful the unit was packaged. 10/10 for packaging. It took me a few days to complete the installation due to some extra items I needed to fix the battery to the bamboo down tube. After completing the gear shift and brake sensoring installations, I turned on the unit and it worked first time - no problem. Took it out for a 16 Mile Test Ride and snapped the drive chain. I recommend that you purchase a chain special made for E-bikes such as - Shimano E6090 E-bike SIL-TEC 10 Speed Chain. BBSHD unit has a very high torque start-up launch, so beware of the initial kick you get especially if you use the throttle not so much with Pedal Assist (PAS) My only issue was that the instruction manual for the DPC14 LCD Display could have been included, but it’s easy to download from the web. Great service and quality unit. Review submitted 01/04/2018.
