Installed it today, works great.
Awesome product! The 1t4 cables make this installation the easiest on the planet! The motor is very powerful and quiet! 1400 miles on it still going strong!
Now I see why Uber, Jump and Lime Bike settled on Bafang. This kit is solid, and so is the performance. Feels like this machine will last for several seasons. Thanks, Ebike Essentials!
This is my first e-bike of any kind. Installing was made easier becasue of the videos on the website. I have a Specialized Pitch MTB. I had to make a custom bracket for the PAS because that bikes' setup is a little different. Other than that, the ebrake sensors got a little tricky when utilizing the existing hydraulic disc brake handles. The levers had unique characteristics where positioning the sensors and magnets was difficult. It would be nice in ordering if new hydraulic levers with integrated sensors was an option. Functionality seems great. I haven't taken the bike off road yet but I'm sure it will do well. I did do 12.5 MPH up a 6% 1.5 mi hill, which was awesome. The items came on time. The items were nicely packaged and organized.
The front hub motor kit was easy to install. Your You Tube installation video was well done. The motor and display work just as they should. Very quick to respond to the questions I asked.
