Re: 350w Bafang CST kit from eMax on 90’s Mongoose MTB

Nice review. I just am jealous because my BBS01 from Emax has only ever gone 38-40km range on a single charge. I have a "15 watt" battery back but my Grin cycle satiator battery charger says it only charges up to about 13.5, but still I wish I could get 72km like you report. Just last week I ran out...

Re: World Rdcord e-Bike Ride Now at 13,000klms

Great review. Very interesting. I have my first ebike which is a bafang on a giant hybrid, I only get 40km distance and only travelled 1200km around Melbourne on it, but I have considered going long distance and your experience is a good motivation. I already have a Travoy trailer as well. You shoul...

Re: Recommend ebikes for a work fleet

Without knowing more details like quantities, budget pricing, three main use scenarios, it is hard to give advice. The cheapest way would be to get your own Bafang middrive kits from emax eBikes in Sydney and build the fleet yourself. This reduces reliance on external shops for maintenance which wou...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

New Drivetrain New KMC 10-speed chain, new XT 10-speed cluster, new 48T chainring and new SLX RD has made it smooth and quiet. The clunk from the battery pack is gone. https://lh5.googleusercontent.com/-Agc0qZ6-ILA/VVmKIXF-rQI/AAAAAAAABq4/Y7lFKS6z5-M/w1153-h865-no/1.jpg If you are ok with imitation...

Re: Nuvinci announces new, cheaper N330 CVT hub

Disappointing there has been no info since the announcement many months ago, I await this new product with baited breath. I think it would go well with my Bafang 350W BBS01 Middrive.

There has been no previews, no pricing, simply no news at all.

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

Ewan/Emax, I would also like one of the adapters if it is just plug and play with the Bafang kit with some kind of pass through between the motor and the controller or something. I am not a weight weenie, my bike is chunky, so a lighter chainring won't make my bike much lighter, but will it improve ...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

I have had my BBS01 for a few weeks now. I am kind of disappointed. I don't know what I am doing wrong, but I went for a ride yesterday at pedal assist mode 9 (with coding from emax ebikes) and I was pedalling the whole time. Unfortunately, the battery only lasted until 38km (13Ah battery). Nothing ...

Re: Prices on Bafang 8Fun all over map!

I found the best deal, with an Australian retailer for the BBS01 kit: emax-ebikes.com.au/store/p25/BAFANG_BBS01_Kit.html In Aussie dollars for $865 (US$683) with the code THESPHERE, I am getting the 350W Bafang kit, with optimal programming, and a 13AH Dolphin battery pack and free shipping inside A...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

Glad to hear you are ok! Speaking of the lock on the battery pack, I assume you wouldn't trust it to be secure in a high risk part of the CBD? I was just reading reviews on Amazon for these special "security skewers" (Pitlock, etc) you can purchase and install on wheels and seatpost to prevent a thi...

Re: Bafang BBS01 350w vs Dillenger 250w front hub

Thanks for the writeup. Great to get the info here from ByeByePetrol and also Tats who I sent a few PM's to. I am going to order the BBS01 from Emax Ebikes, for this bike, in a few weeks: http://www.bikeshed.com.au/pages/products/bikes/giant/giant_2005/comfort/05_innova.html I was reading your other...

Re: Theft proofing your ebike battery.

I am planning my first e-bike build, and the best solution I can come up with is this. Firstly, I will most likely order a Bafang BBS01 kit with a 36V13AH Dolphin Frame Mounted Battery Pack. When I plan to leave my bike unattended for hours, and I am not planning on charging the battery, I am lookin...
