Luna  has proven itself to be the premier BBS02 dealer offering the best selection of kits with the best features at lower prices than you can find anywhere.

We cover most repair parts for all versions of the BBS02

This price is for knowledgeable builders and people willing to do their homework before they buy.  If you fix things on your own bike and like tinkering then this kit is fine for you. It is a plug and play kit with everything you need except the battery and charger. If you have not installed an ebike kit on a bike before we recommend that you read the installation manual before you make the decision to buy this drive unit. 

We are an Australian  company located in Perth. Many other people who offer this type of pricing are in China and the problem with China is the shipping costs tend to be very high (around $80 for the drive unit and much more for batteries). If you think it's expensive to receive something sent from China, wait until you try to send something back to China. When you buy an ebike product from a non-reputable vendor in China you are basically getting it without a warranty. 

 

BBS02 or BBSHD?

  • The BBS02 is a better option over the bbshd in these cases:
  • when cost is a factor
  • when you do not  need the extra power the bbshd offers.
  • when you do not need extreme hill climbing power
  • when you want a lightweight build.
  • Also check out the 1000w BBSHD if you want more power than the BBS02 offers.

 

 

 

Optional extras are: 

 

  • Under 5 kilos but packs a big punch
  • Can be programmed from 250 watts ( 25KM/H EN15194)
  • Affordable and powerful mid drive conversion kit
  • 25 amp upgraded MOSFET controller (up to 500 watt with 36 volt battery
  • Turn almost any bike into a high-end mid drive ebike for a very affordable price

 

 

Which Bike?

The Bafang drive mounts in place of your current bike's bottom bracket and replaces your bike's crank set and front derailler if you have one. 

Your donor bike must have 68-73mm bottom bracket width. That means this kit will bolt onto almost any bicycle. But not fat bikes. We have the BBSHD which is 1000W nominal 1500W peak and will work with fat bikes 100-120mm bottom brackets BBSHD located here.

Many people have found that the Bafang can actually be mounted to many types of trikes, which can be fun since many trikes are not good candidates for hub motor kits.

 

Maybe you have an old donor bike laying around you want to convert, or maybe you are wide open to which bike to buy and install this kit on.

If you are also shopping for a bike to install this kit, that is perfect. We recommend you pick a bike that is known to be compatible with this drive and has no known issues. Ideally a build report has been written on our builder forum so that you can follow step by step someone elses building steps.

Here is a post on our builders forum  with a picture  collection with links to  build reports you can quickly  scroll through.

Regarding Controller and Program Setting

When riding off road you can up the limits by choosing a different level. 

You can purchase the programming cable so at any time you can change your settings: A hackers guide to programming the BBS02

 

Sprocket Options 

We offer the Bafang with 4 different options for tooth count on the chain wheel, 44/46/48/52 tooth.

Of course your gearing will also be determined by the rear cluster on the back of your bike. 

But you need to choose which of these 4 options you want up front.

46 tooth will give you the most reliable set up that is also very torquey and better for off road hill climbing.

48 tooth will give you the middle ground.

52 tooth will give you the highest top speed (30mph) but is only recommended for street riding and you should really take care not to overheat your controller when running this high by keeping your motor spending fast.

Regarding Throttle Choices

The kit comes standard with a universal thumb throttle. The r throttle can also easily be installed on the left hand side or right. Thumb throttles are highly recommended for the safest operation. Some people prefer motorcycle twist throttles, and these can be purchased from the US store with free shipping after your order is placed from Luna-Mate. For an article about choosing a throttle click here

 

 

Luna Install Tool option

There are some proprietary nuts on the bottom bracket of the BBSHD that can be a little tricky to install without the right tool (still very easy to jerry rig something)

 However the Luna install wrench was made to make this task a snap and make taking on and off your drive easier in the future. 

 This is a $30 option.  Luna manufactures  this kit in their shop, and makes it affordable...the bafang install kit would cost anywhere from $65-$150 depending on which dealer you bought it from.

BBS02 or hub motor kit?

Why a BBS02 mid drive over a hub motor kit?

We have written many times on the advantages of a mid drive. Click to read one article here

  • For off road trail use nothing beats a mid drive. 
  • The weight of the drive system is very low and is in the centre of the bike providing perfect balance. When weight is low and centred like this it can actually make the bike more stable (like a keel on a sailboat).

  • Light weight system at approximately 4 kilos.

  • The ability to use the gearing of  the bike so you can climb big hills in low gear or go fast in a very high gear.

  • Very good climber even off road on impossibly steep inclines.

  • No more heavy weight in the wheel means the bike will be much more agile going over off road terrain and safer to jump.

  • The controller is built into the motor which means it is a tighter system with less wires to hide.

  • Mid drives produce a power\top speed\weight\cost ratios that no hub motor on the market can touch.

 

 

 

Question and answers

 

Here is a compilation of common questions we get with answers. If you don't find the answer you need please post it to our forums here.

Is there any difference of the BBSXX sold from the different sellers?

There are small differences in the program settings the dealers decide to program into the BBSHD or what power connectors they use...but for the most part the BBSHD is the same from all sellers. China sellers are selling them with stock program setting from Bafang which makes the drive much more sluggish and slow.

 

How do i program my own BBSHD and what do i need to do it?

All you need is our $35 programming cable and then read this programming guide.... its easier than you think.

 

Why should i buy from you guys instead of some china Seller?

Our price is the same, if not lower than most China sellers. We are an Australian company and can provide after sales support which China cannot offer because of how far away they are. It costs more than $100 to send a BBSHD back to China.

 

What is the top speed I will get out of my BBSHD?

From our experience the top speed we see is 30mph.  With high gearing and hard pedaling you can get a bit more... but the drive is not geared high enough for much beyond 30mph.

 

What is the difference of the BBS02 vs BBSHD? which one do you recommend?


The BBSHD is completely redesigned and is a much more robust drive that is more efficient and more dependable. You do not need to shift as much with the torque the BBSHD offers and can even run a BBSHD single speed, which would  be unheard of on a BBS02.  The BBS02 weighs 1.4 kilos less and is around $150 less.  If big power is not important to you the BBS02 is a way to save weight and money. 

Which display do you recommend for the BBSHD?

The color DPC14 is by far the best display offering... the latest and greatest.  Read an independent review.
