Benefits of a mid-drive motor compared to a cheaper hub motor:

  • Uses the bikes gears as the engines transmission so the motor can run at the optimum RPM range
  • Increased performance
  • More efficient
  • Better at climbing hills
  • Better weight distribution as the motor is positioned close to the center of gravity and low to the ground
  • Improved handling
  • Easier maintenance and installation
  • A Mid Drive ebike is easier to ride because the extra weight on the wheels of a hub ebike make it tougher to pedal

    awesome service, quick postage. The kit fit my bikes BB except the bottom arms were wider than usual to accommodate the bigger tyre. I made some minor adjustments and the kit fit on. I also brought the 52v 20Ah battery and it has been awesome. So fun to ride.

    68mm 52v 1000W

    Posted by Sam on 16th Jul 2020

    Amazing power! you don't even notice hills any more with this motor and a 52v battery, it is awesome. Will be replacing the car for short trips.

    Kit was relatively straightforward to install if not a little frustrating at times. One of the 6mm threaded holes in the motor case for the stabilizing bracket was chewed up from factory, I had to tap it myself with an M6 thread tap. The included chain ring is pretty bad and heavy, highly recommend the Lekkie bling ring. Took me about 5 or 6 hours to install everything. Overall it is a very Chinese kit but once installed it is worth the effort. The rush you get with this is amazing!

    Quality product and service

    Posted by CK on 21st Jan 2020

    When the kit arrived, I was already impressed by the way Pirez bike had packed each individual components, the box itself was designed specifically to protect each individual item.

    Everything from this kit arrived immaculately and in a timely manner despite some problems with my payment method earlier on.

    I'm most impressed by the support team who promptly notified me about a custom item that they did not have in stock but will continue to ship the kit first. Allowing part shipment is a fantastic service, this meant that I had the parts asap. I had the bike about 2 weeks before the other item (Lekkie 42T ring) arrived.

    The kit itself is really well made, all cables are included and Pirez also does very well to ensure that you get all the required information needed to do the conversion.

    My own tips for anyone who wants to attempt the conversion themselves:

    1. Watch a lot of BBSHD/Bafang installation videos on youtube, you will find an abundance of information from others who undertook the project. If for some reason you cannot find these videos, Pirez bikes will also send you the exact link for you to follow.

    2. If this is your first bike project, i highly recommend buying the optional installation toolkit. With that toolkit, you will find all the tools required to both remove the current setup on your bike as well as installing the entire kit. The special spanner that it includes is priceless. I will review the toolkit separately.

    3. Don't stress, take your time and don't be afraid to call a friend/family member to help out. Don't believe the hype when people say this can be done in under an hour. With my best effort, my conversion took closer to 6 hours, but the main thing is that it CAN be done even for someone who has never worked on a bike before (Myself)

    As for the motor itself, it is extremely powerful, and i highly recommend buying the optional PC connection cable so you can tune/adjust it properly for your enjoyment. Please be responsible and don't unlock the 99km/hr speed unless you are able to handle it safely.

    Another optional item that i highly, highly recommend is the gear shift sensor, if you love your bike and want your gears and chain to last, then this is a must item. The gear shift sensor basically cuts the power to your motor as soon as it detects any changes in gear. This results in a much smoother ride and reduces the strain on the chain and gears. I will also review this component separately, for now however, trust me, you won't want to ride without this part.

    To maximize what this motor can do, chose a battery that best suits your need. For me, this motor is to be put on my delivery bike, so i opted for the largest battery and amp hour battery I can find, the result? ... with mild peddling uphills and on flats, the computer is estimating an average of over 1,000km per charge (52v 20ah Triangle Panasonic Battery). The motor itself hardly goes over 6-7amps when under load and since the BBSHD have a limit of 28amps, it means that I have plenty of power in reserves should i need to call upon it. We specifically de-tuned this engine to be road worthy. The BBSHD have better components and controllers than the BBS01 and BBS02. It is much less prone to failure, and if looked after, it will last a very very long time.

    Overall, i'm super impressed about this kit, and i'm equally impressed that the service Pirez bikes have given me.

    If anyone is after a conversion kit to bring some new life into an older bike, I highly recommend the BBSHD and Pirez as a company. They have me as a customer for life. I will again buy a 250w conversion kit for my wife's bike sometime this year, and it will be from no where else but Pirez Bikes.

    Don't settle for a cheaper option and don't regret spending more money for quality. Both this kit and Pirez Bikes is nothing short of premium.

    Im very impressed

    Posted by Colin Brydon on 10th Oct 2019

    I purchased this mid drive and also the 48v 26ah triangle battery. The costs were competitive with anywhere I could find as I am on a budget, the packaging and product were excellent. They both arrived on the promised day which impressed me they use Australia post. Pirez also researched technical data for me from the manufacturer of my bike. I am impatient at times and quite demanding but this whole exercise left a smile on my face. My bike is fantastic too..thankyou Colin WA.....

    Excellent power - easy install, just the Hydraulic Brake Sensors are a bit iffy. But don't really need them
