I've had the bike finished now for 6 months. It's amazing! Everything I wanted - fast, reliable and very very powerful. I can go up anything with no worries. The only downside is the peddle assist being a little eager and for this reason it's a handful of twisty trails so I avoid them. Too often it has taken me round a corner too fast so I don't get a good line for the next corner and it's caused an off. On every other terrain it's just fine. I rode the Specialised Turbo Levo the other day and it's peddle assist is fantastic, it's torque assist so perfect for controlling your pace in the twisty stuff. Would I swap... nope - the power of the BBS HD on a Giant Glory is way too much fun to drop down from 1000watts to 550watts. If Brose motor comes out with 1000watts I'd swap instantly.
Have you tried programming your BBSHD? I bought a kit for my Trek Dual Sport from Luna with the configuration pretty "opened up", but decided it was a little too "exciting" for me. So I toned it down some and it rides great for me now.
If you haven't tried programming it before, it's really a no-risk exercise. You can save your current configuration and then change anything and everything, from each PAS level (including ramp up/down) to throttle response. Also, the PAS progression does not need to linear, so the first few levels could be mild, followed by big steps in the next few. It's fun to play with.
