The Bafang 500W Front Hub Kit (FMG020) comes with all the necessary parts to transform almost any bike with an open-slotted front fork into a high-powered electric bike! This geared front hub motor kit is quiet, fast, lightweight, high-performing, hill-climbing, and well-engineered. Because the wheel motor comes pre-built and ready to ride, the Bafang 500W Front Hub Motor Kit is one of the fastest and easiest installations possible.
To make installation super-easy, we design our front hub motors to work with just about all front brake styles, from disk brakes to caliper and V-brakes! All our e-bike kits come standard with replacement mechanical e-brake levers to replace your current mechanical levers. If you have hydraulic brakes or simply prefer to keep your existing brake levers, we also offer optional e-brake sensors.
These aren't your run-of-the-mill thin and cheap tires. This front wheel e-bike kit comes with an ultra-high-performance, puncture-resistant 2.1" MAXXIS pace tire (MSRP $60) to provide peace of mind while you are out there riding! The rim is made with 12-gauge black spokes and is ready for wear and tear.
The Bafang Front Hub 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! These Front Hub Motors have a surprising amount of torque and are fast as they are designed to be able to go 20+ MPH!
This complete hub motor kit includes 2 types of Pedal Assist Sensor (PAS) options for your installation convenience. The Pedal Assist Sensor (PAS) is a cadence sensor and allows you to choose the power level of motor assistance that you would like while pedaling via the PAS Level setting on the display.
This is the newest Bafang 500W Front Hub Motor with a "rated power" of 500 watts. However, with the included 18-amp controller paired with a 48V battery, it is capable of a maximum power of more than 864 watts.
Our kit includes all of the the necessary hardware and equipment to install our Front Hub Motor on your bike. There are extra add-ons available, however our baseline kit includes many of the parts which other companies piece meal out and charge more for!

I installed it on my old Trek Marlin 4. Took about 8 hours. Sofar I am really impressed.
Bike is not standard had to make modifications, but results were excellent. Heavy even on light bike, but very smooth and quiet.
Everything works good
The roads in my neighborhood are little sloppy. It's strenuous to bike up the hill. So I decided to purchase a front-hub kit to install a hybrid bike, Marin Stinson. The installation took about 4 hours, which wasn't too bad considering that I never worked on any bicycle before and I was watching TV at the same time. With the new setup, I can easily bike to my kid's school about 4 blocks away, put her in the back seat, and bike up the hill (about to 5 to 10 degrees) back home. Our combined weight is about 210 pounds, and the ride back home is pretty relaxing.
After owning the motor for 5 days, I only rode it for 4 of them and have put 150 miles on it. It runs smoothly, stress test is passed. I have taken it on some rough hills, dirt ramps (no jumps, need more secure battery), off road/rough bike paths, and still use it to commute 18 miles one way to work. Lots and lots of work, still going flawlessly. Will update if that changes, but with this company's customer support I doubt it will. 22 mph max throttle speed
