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!

Front hub complete kit

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.

Front Hub Motor Kit

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.
