Re: Build of Bafang BBS02 from Greenbikekit

Found a good deal on a full suspension Motobecane, so I decided to retire my old bike. Kudos to hie2kolob for helping me pull the BBS02 off the old bike and install it on the new bike. This BBS02 is now into its fourth season (and on its third bike) and still going strong. bafang.motobecane2.jpg

Re: Build of Bafang BBS02 from Greenbikekit

??? You can order the same kit for a little more money from suppliers in the US and get excellent support. EG: Luna, Empowered and California E bikes. I bought two BBS02s and experienced a 100% failure rate in the first year. Doug at Cal-Ebikes took care of them promptly under warranty. Be sure to ...

WANTED: Used 36v lithium ion pack, preferrably silver fish

I'm looking for a used 36v 10Ah lithium ion pack, hopefully gently used. I would prefer a silver fish, but I'll take anything at this point since I have a rack I could mount the battery on. Thanks

Re: 5 Bafang BBS02 Conversions

Having seen that new build in person, and seeing the huge smile on your face while you were riding it, I predict that bike will give you many miles of smiles.

And I love all the quotes in your signature. Brilliant! Sorry I never noticed them before.

Knock on wood, no puffers yet. But I've only taken them on a couple hard rides so far. None of the six had any low cells when I first got them, so maybe I got lucky.

Still running strong at 2000+ km, although I'm hearing a slight growl from the gears. I think I'll open it up and lubricate the gears, as described in the main bafang thread. I picked up some of the multistar packs mentioned in this thread: https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=14&t=6167...

I can't believe the size of these things! Wow. .... double the AH in the same space as before. I'm having the same reaction. If I had ordered that many, I could fit 12 batteries (40Ah) in my saddlebag, with room to spare. 20Ah multistars in saddlebag.jpg I will be able to replace the 10Ah of hardca...

Re: Build of Bafang BBS02 from Greenbikekit

After seeing Kinninviekid's sweet bike bag, I started experimenting with frame bags and came up with several options that I'm very happy with. My main goal was to eliminate or at least reduce the amount of batteries on the rear rack. I now have 10Ah (960wh) mounted on the frame, half in a bag that's...
