Throttle gives best control

I am very happy with my front hub which gives me all-wheel drive. I ride mostly rough back roads with lots of hills and found the pedal assist did not work well on the hills so I disabled it and only use the throttle for the hills. That way I can conserve the battery when I am pedaling and have better control in slower speed areas. I built the fork heavier with steel dropouts and the extra weight gives better traction. I have not had any spin-outs in 150 miles. My kit is on a Giant Yukon and I usually go 17 miles and use the throttle quite a bit and have never come home with less than 48 volts or 45%. I like being able to use all 24 speeds on my bike but on the faster roads the highest speed is all one needs using the throttle to get started.

Complete Bafang Front Hub Ebike Motor Kit & Battery

I just finished installing two of these units on different bikes. Not everything was a perfect fit, but I was able to make everything OK. The installations actually went quite well. It would be nice if there was a little more documentation for installation and operation afterwards. The on-line videos, while nice, aren't as good as having an instruction manual in hand.

Balance 500w ebike kit

This is an excellent kit no matter what the price. Mine was on sale so even sweeter. Excellent videos and manuals. Had no problems except for one little glitch. The video for the non drive pas sensor install should include the total mm you need for the opening. It only states you need a minimum of 5mm distance from disc to sensor. My sensor with the clip was to big to fit the opening. Had to remove the clip. Other than that. Perfect! What a ride! Love ❤
