One of the biggest criticisms of the BBSHD is the ugly and heavy steel sprocket that is geared to high (46t).  We include that stock sprocket in case you want the higher gear reduction and the aluminium 42t is an optional extra.

Why the BBSHD is the best kit on the planet

 The BBSHD is a complete redesign of the extremely popular mid drive the BBS02, every part is stronger and better. This is a pedal assist or throttle system bike with a very refined system that can be adjusted to 250 watt legal mode (level 1 or 2) in pedal assist mode, or can be ridden off road in higher levels at full power over 1500 watts. 

The BBSHD heralds a new age of factory installed mid-drives. Unlike most other factory mid drives the BBSHD is designed to be mounted onto almost any bicycle currently manufactured. You can mate the BBSHD to any bike with a bottom bracket that is anywhere from 68mm to a much wider 100mm fat bike. The BBSHD is even now made in odd sizes (72mm & 120mm), including extra fat. We include with every kit so that you can make your BBSHD fit for almost any bottom bracket. If in doubt order the next size up....and our spacers will help you make the kit fit.

Install it on anything and ride it anywhere. With the proper gearing the BBSHD will easily climb stairs, go fast on the flats. Use your regular bicycle gearing to ride in the optimal gear. Singletrack trail-riding, cargo bikes, high-speed commuters the BBSHD can do it all.

The BBSHD excels at singletrack riding article on singletrack testing here as well as soft sand article on soft sand testing and works best with the Lunacycle Eclipse ring independently reviewed here or the Mighty-Mini chainring available here. The stock 46T steel chainring on this kit is very heavy and has too many teeth for trailriding, although it works fine for commuting.

Its predecessor the BBS02 would sometimes falter if run at peak power for too long of a time but those days are over with the BBSHD. Completely redesigned with thicker windings, giant heat dissipating fins and a powerful 30 Amp 12 FET controller with newer 3077 mosfets the BBSHD can run at 1600 watts all day long. There is nothing else like it on the market and is a game changer to make a  real mountain climber or the ultimate road cruiser.

Go ahead, beat on it, the BBSHD was designed to take all of your abuse and more.

These kits come programmed for road usage levels in pedal assist mode.  Install a throttle or use the optional programming cable to lift your bike to off road power modes.

Regarding Sizing

The BBSHD comes in sizes made to fit the size of your bottom bracket. Please measure your bottom bracket before ordering. We have both in standard sizes (68-73mm), wide and fat sizes (74-100mm) and extra fat (100-120mm)

If in doubt about your sizing read this guide. If your bottom bracket shell is slightly longer than usual (for example 75mm) You can still use the standard motor. At worst you would just not use the second lockring which just acts as a jam nut and instead use blue Loctite. Same thing if your motor is a few mm above 100, you would NOT need the extra fat motor. You often can make a larger motor work with spacers but you do not need to go up a size if it is only a few millimeters difference.  

Luna provides an exclusive spacer kit, which gives you up to 12mm of adjustment so that you can size your drive down in case it doesn't fit right away. For some odd sizes you may need more than one spacer kit. If you think you will need more than 12mm of spacers get more on our spacer kit page.


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. 

The  BBSHD can be mounted in a wide range of bottom brackets from 68mm to 120mm. To pick which motor works right for you: please see this guide.  For most applications you need the standard size (68mm), and can even go a few millimeters over the usual limit of 73mm with standard by using loctite on the axle instead of the second lockring.

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 collection of build reports you can scroll through. 


Questions 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 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 sluggish and slow.

How do I check the polarity is correct?

Follow this thread here: 

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 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.  We think the BBSHD is worth the extra price and pounds.


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.

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.

BBSHD kit[120mm]

good price, fast delivery. Easy to fit and set up.Programming on the controller of the latest motors caused me some problems over operation of the throttle, but Rod from Luna Mate was quick to reply to my emails and help sort things out. I have no hesitation over recommending this kit.

BBSHD Kit tools required

I commute 40km per day with a large hill at the end. This motor is awesome and eats up the road. I am the fastest commuter in town. I do think the kit should include the tools to be able to self install. I have a lot of bike tools, but the wrench required to tighten the nuts on the bottom bracket are unique to this kit and should be included. I didn't purchase separately thinking my tools would do the job. Not so. Also, put some basic instructions in the kit. Very happy with the purchase other wise and I hope the battery will last long enough to justify the cost. Time will tell.
