    Eggrider dusplay

    I have one and they are excellent especially as you can have 2 sets of settings ie one for offroad and one for onroad and its possible to lock the display so the offroad settings cannot be accessed without the phone app. I use my phone as the main display as my eyesight cant see the tiny reading...

    BBSHD. 48 or 52 volt battery?

    52 volts will have more Wh than a 48v and a slight increase in top speed too. I run both with 2 sets of 52v batteries in a crossbar bag and a 48v in a rear rack bag. Each set is plugged in seperately so when one set gets low I unplug and put the next set in. It gets me 100 miles plus rides with...

    What's the best bafang for my buck?

    Just because the BBSHD has 1000 watts doesn't mean you have to use them all. I use an Eggrider display and can set the maximum wattage to any value I want. Its currently set to 250 watts in road mode and 1560 watts in offroad mode. Not legal but then neither is the BBS02. Eggrider manual is here.

    48v to 52v battery on BBS02 worth it?

    I once tried a BBS02 0n 14S Lipo and it got so hot I could smell the motor and that was on a slight incline so now I wont go over 12S to be safe.

    Good deal from Halfords.

    Decided to take advantage of Halfords 20% trade in deal last week for a new MTB to put a BBS02 on and glad I did. Went for a Carrera Vulcan priced at £350 and traded in a 20 year old Bell helmet that my son used when he was at school which brought the price down to £280. The pdi found a tiny...

    Ridiculous battery prices

    This is why I like my Lipos, bought 710Wh of 12S for £180 . Of course these are not recommended for newbies as they can be dangerous in inexperienced hands. Luckily I have a stone barn well away from the house to keep them in.
