BBS02 or BBSHD?
The BBS02 is a better option over the bbshd in these cases:
- 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.

- Thumb throttle (twist throttle $21.95 which can be purchased here).
- Ebrake handles which cut off the motor when depressed

The Bafang drive mounts in place of your current bike's bottom bracket and replaces your bike's crank set and front derailleur 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 writt
