We are selling the very popular BBS02 at a very discounted price.  This is the highest performance version of this drive with upgraded firmware (custom made for Luna Cycles) and a controller with upgraded 3077 mosfets designed to handle the higher power this upgraded firmware will give you. 

Do not let another USA dealer snow job you, there is no better or newer or faster BBS02 kit available.   

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.

Also look to this link for an installation guide: https://youtu.be/axwC8yfJ9AQ

We are an American company located in Southern California. 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. 

Regarding Controller and Firmware Hot Rod

Our kit includes a factory hotrodded controller different than most BBS02s purchased from China. The original BBS02 controller also had weak mosfets that would blow out easily when too much load was put on the system. We have had all our drives modified at the factory with more expensive and robust 3077 mosfets to make the controller handle more power without overheating. This makes it possible for us to change the firmware to a set up that allows you to utilize all peak 1300 watts this drive is capable of. We still recommend that you use a lot of common sense and keep your motor spinning fast by shifting down and keep your motor revving high when climbing. All electric motors prefer to spin at high rpms and you should keep this in mind and baby your bafang. We do not cover blown controllers under warranty. So if you overheat your controller by not following our operation guide, you will have to replace it. 

The way this kit comes from the manufacturer it is very solid and hard to burn out. It is also difficult to get the kit’s maximum 1300 watts of performance which you can do by upgrading the firmware. We sell our kits to experienced builders with the firmware already upgraded. (Click here for the firmware programming guide)

Regarding chainwheel size

We offer the Bafang with 3 different options for tooth count on the chainwheel.

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 ot overheat your controller when running this high by keeping your motor spending fast. 

(Click here to read our special care & instructions guide here)

Regarding Throttle Choices

The kit comes standard with a right thumb throttle. The right thumb throttle can also easily be installed on the left hand side. Thumb throttles are highly recommended for the safest operation. Some people prefer motorcycle twist throttles, and we offer a twist throttle on either left or right side for $7 upgrade price. For an article about choosing a throttle (click here)

Regarding Battery Options

This kit comes with everything you need to convert your bicycle minus battery and charger which you can add now or later. 

Any  48 or 52 volt batteries will work with this kit.  Because this kit is high amperage we not recommend using a cheaper made in China battery that does not put out the amperage this kit needs. Your battery pack should be able to take a 30Amp continuous load.

Because all our batteries are designed for high amperage loads, they are all suitable for this kit. 

Once you have picked the voltage then you just need to pick the size. The higher the aH the farther the battery will take you. A 10aH battery will give you around 25 miles on average. A 20aH battery should get you 50 miles. More aH means bigger in size, more weight and harder to mount. 

We do offer a kit with a shark battery you can find here. 

Kit includes:  

  • Bafang mid drive motor bottom bracket mounted

  • Upgraded 3077 mosfets in the controller to make the BBS02 more reliable than ever

  • Bottom bracket compatible with 68-73mm bottom brackets (most standard bikes)
  • 46 tooth chain wheel

  • Thumb throttle (Twist throttle $7.50 upgrade option).

  • Ebrake handles  which cut off  the motor when depressed

  • Full color display (usually a $50 option)

  • 25 amp controller (built into drive system)

 

  • Most popular mid drive of all time.
  • Under 10 pounds but packs big pucn
  • Can be programmed to a legal 250 watts up to 1400 watts
  • Affordable and powerful mid drive conversion kit
  • 25 amp upgraded mosfets controller  (up to 1300 watt with 52 volt battery)
  • 46, 48 or 52 tooth main sprocket your choice
  • Everything you need for conversion minus the Battery and charger
  • Turn almost any bike into a high-end mid drive ebike for very affordable price

Because all our batteries are designed for high amperage loads, they are all suitable for this kit. 

52 volts will get you more power and higher top speed of about 30mph on level ground. It will go faster on downhills if you have a large chainring on it.

48 volt battery will get you a little less power and top speed of around 27mph.

Once you have picked the voltage then you just need to pick the size. The higher the aH the farther the battery will take you. A 10aH battery will give you around 25 miles on average. A 20aH battery should get you 50 miles. More aH means bigger in size, more weight and harder to mount. 

 

Kit includes:

  • 46 tooth chain wheel

  • Thumb throttle (Twist throttle $7.50 upgrade option).

  • Ebrake handles  which cut off  the motor when depressed

  • C961 Bafang display (click here for operating manual)

  • 25 amp controller (built into drive system)

 

Compatibility

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.

 

 

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 center of the bike providing perfect balance. When weight is low and centered like this it can actually make the bike more stable (like a keel on a sailboat).

  • Light weight system at only 9 pounds.

  • 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 dont find the answer you need please post it to our forums here.

Is there any difference of the BBSHD 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 slugish and slow.

 

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

All you need is our $20 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 now lower than most china sellers,. We are a USA company and can provide USA after sales support which China cant offer because of how far away they are. it costs 100 dollars to send a bbshd back to China.

 

 

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 3 pounds less and is around 150 dollars less.  If big power is not important for you the BBS02 shouold fit your needs fine. 

 

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. 

 

How do I order the right  BBSHD kit that fits my bike?  

Read this guide.

 

Which bike should i select as a donor bike?  

We highly recommend you pick a bike that someone has already done a build on...that way your build will have no surprises or compatibility issues. Look at this section in our forum for a compilation of builds reports. Any one of these frame kits with documented build reports would be a great choice. 

 

Can i fit the BBSHD with a modern press fit bottom bracket system?

Yes but you will need to purchase a converter. Read this guide or this article from Empowered.
