Description

The iconic Bafang BBSHD first burst onto the DIY e-bike scene back in 2015 and was an instant success. It has remained virtually unchanged apart from a few minor tweaks to the electrics and internals. For anyone who’s ever ridden a BBSHD-powered e-bike, the experience is usually unforgettable! The sheer torque this motor produces is remarkable and its ability to climb the steepest of hills with minimal effort is fantastic. For the full review of the Bafang BBSHD click the link at the bottom of this page.

During my time installing e-bike conversion kits, the Bafang BBSHD was and still is my all-time favourite.

Summary – what makes the Bafang BBSHD so great?

First and foremost riding a Bafang BBSHD-powered bike is guaranteed to make you grin from ear to ear. The way this motor produces power is just addictive – turn it up to level 9 and point your bike at a steep hill and the BBSHD will take you up there on wafts of seamless power which just keeps on pulling like a train!

The flip side to the coin is you can ride it around in the lowest power setting and it will still give you plenty of pedal assist whilst being incredibly energy efficient. I used to ride a BBSHD mountain bike a few years back and I could easily squeeze 100 miles out of a 48v 17.5Ah battery with range to spare.

Just like its smaller siblings the Bafang BBSHD will fit a majority of regular bicycles with a few exceptions. Providing your bike has a standard BSA threaded bottom bracket  then installation should be fairly straightforward for the competent DIY enthusiast.

Unlike the BBS02B 750w, you can safely get away with using a 52v battery which on a full charge@58.8v will make the motor produce a whopping 1764w. This kind of power is not to be taken lightly and if you are using this off-road on private land I would recommend wearing full protective gear.

The Bafang BBSHD is unlike any other e-bike conversion kit and should be treated with respect in full power mode. You should only install this kit on a bike that is in good serviceable condition with preferably hydraulic disc brakes and a good sturdy frame and wheelset. I would also recommend fitting e-bike specific tyres.

If you don’t mind experimenting with the controller settings you can purchase a USB programming cable and download the free open source software  – for more information on how to do this safely, follow the instructions on Karl’s electricbike-blog. You don’t really need to lower the maximum current as the controller on the BBSHD will handle this current all day long. You may, however want to reduce the start current on PAS and throttle down to 5% as this motor can make your bike wheelie in full power mode and low gear on start-up.

Neat installation – because of the design, a Bafang BBSHD installation if done correctly will result in a very neat and professional looking e-bike conversion.

Choose your power! Most of the Bafang display units allow the rider to choose from up to 9 gradually incremented levels of assist. This means that you as the rider can either decide to stay within your comfort zone (for pedalling) or maybe push yourself that little bit hard and share the workload with the motor. I have written a separate article on using an e-bike to get fit and lose weight on my other website.

Legal notice

The Bafang BBSHD is very powerful and should not be used in public spaces or on the road in the UK due to current laws regarding the power output and speed of electric pedal cycles.

Conclusion

The Bafang BBSHD is a great e-bike motor and as the ‘heavy-duty’ name suggests, it’s incredibly robust and only accounted for a small amount of electrical problems when I used to install them and other motors. In fact I’m still in touch with several of my early customers who are still having fun on their BBSHD-powered MTB’s 3-4 years and 1000’s of miles after installation. The BBSHD is great fun and will run rings around e-MTB’s costing several thousand pounds.

The Bafang BBSHD is my no.1 favourite electric bike conversion kit🏆
Riding a Bafang BBSHD-powered e-bike is great fun, you just can't compare the feel of this motor to anything you can buy in the shops. Yes, it's not road legal but if you have access to the space you can have so much fun. Every time I've installed one of these on a customer's mountain bike their reaction has always been one of amazement without exception. As far as reliability is concerned I have only experienced a few isolated electrical problems in the past - the BBSHD is more reliable than the BBS02B, especially when subject to the rigours off off-road riding.
