    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.

    Expected lifetime of a BBS02

    I guess as you filled it with grease initially you didnt reseal the motor properly. One of my BBS02s has over 8000 miles on it and goes through a ford where the water comes over the top of the motor at least once a month over the last 3 years and still runs perfectly. The second one (on a...

    Is there any difference between the B and non B versions of the BBS series?

    The BBSHD is my most used bike as I have weak leg muscles and the throttle comes in very handy when my legs give out. The KTM is great on forest trails though as its much lighter and controllable with the torque sensor BB. Luckily I live next to Hamsterley Forest so the lack of throttle is only...

    Having 26Ah of batteries helps with the long rides. My longest so far has been 102 miles,the problem is I can only ride between 9.30am and 3.30pm otherwise I could do quite a bit more.
