The Bafang BBSHD 1000 watt complete motor kit with ebike battery is a high-performing, lightweight, quiet, fast, hill-climbing, well-engineered electric bike kit. The Bafang mid-drive BBSHD 1000w motor mounts in place of your bike's bottom bracket and replaces your bike's crankset and front derailleur if you have one.
The Bafang BBSHD 1000W Motor offers both throttle and pedal assist power. You can always use the throttle in order to engage the motor if you want to take a break from pedaling!
The Bafang 1000W Mid-Drive Motor is superior to both Rear and Front Hub Motors because it offers a balanced low center of gravity. On a standard bike, the weight of the motor is balanced directly in the middle of the bike down in your bikes bottom bracket. This allows for a better riding experience with a balanced low center of gravity with this motor located in your bike's bottom bracket.
The Bafang 1000W Mid-Drive Motor is superior to both Rear and Front Hub Motors because the full power of the motor acts on your bike's chain transmitting the power directly to your bike's rear gears. This allows for the power of the motor to be transmitted directly into your bike's existing drivetrain leveraging your bike's rear gears for superior performance through mechanical performance.
Our kit includes all of the the necessary hardware and equipment to install our Front Hub Motor on your bike. There are exta add-ons avaiable, however our baseline kit includes many of the parts which other companies peice meal out and charge more for!

Product is GREAT. Just wish there were more comprehensive instructions
Order got to me in Colorado within 3 days of order fulfillment. The kit was well packaged and nothing was broken or missing. The battery was packaged well with keys and the mounting plate attached on the battery.
The motor is pretty much silent compared to a hub based motor and has great torque. The control display is pretty standard and doesn't have a ton of information to give. It is also not backlit or color but, you can put on any Bafang compatible controller later on. The brake levers included are for mechanical brakes only. You would need the brake sensors and figure out a way to mount them on your hydraulic brakes. These are not required to run the kit but are good safety feature.
I went with the left thumb throttle that is a push style (think jet ski, scooter, etc.). The action is very light and has a bit of modulation so you can adjust the power input a bit by feel. I would have liked it to have a bit more resistance and a wider sweep but ergonomics are good.
I suggest getting some wire heat shrink and some cable management ties and fixtures. I just purchased about $30 worth on Amazon of 1/2" and 1" but I would suggest the 3/4" as well if you really want to give it some effort. By far the most time consuming part is cable and wire management. This kit does not come with the Bafang bottom bracket tool so you'll need to get one or get creative.
Get the shift sensor. I didn't order it at the time as the price seemed a bit high but did install one. It will save your chain/gears for sure. The torque on this motor is pretty substantial and the pause in power delivery while you pedal into gear is great. It's not perfect but can be with some tinkering.
The motor can get pretty hot if you are heavy on the throttle. I'm about 200lbs and, while is has no issues pulling me around in PAS 9, the motor casing is HOT after a good ride. This is to be expected and why the SSHD casing is all metal over the other lower rated motors plastic coverings.
Overall very happy with the kit. I wish you could customize your order a bit more with opt-out options. I have brake levers I'll never use and a display that I didn't really want. Also more chain ring options would be nice. I had to order from Lekkie to get a proper offset ring. This is going to vary for each bike and setup for sure. I am using a 12 speed cassette, which is crazy but if I get caught out with a failure I want those upper cogs to help pedal this thing back. The added weight is substantial but that is to be expected. Keeping the weight low slung really kept the bike nimble. It's mounted on a full rigid 29er on some Maxxis Hookworms. Absolute rocket for a bicycle.
Excellent. Pretty straightforward install thanks to videos. One oversight on my part was the geometry on my Hard Tail Trek xCalibur. The downtube doesn't leave much room for battery. I squeezed it in, but may have to go with a rack or a battery with a smaller footprint
I have enjoyed the whole experience.I use my bike every day.I have become healthier because of it. I also tell other people how great it is.
Just finished installing my 1000w motor and Whale Shark battery. We went 9 miles yesterday and about 20 miles today. This setup is AWESOME! My significant other wants one. I am placing the order now. Highly recommended.
