    Used Izip for $800 or Bafang kit + Masi converted into E-bike for 1300??

    Hi! Trying to decide btw a used Izip E3 Vibe for $800 or Bafang Kit converting a Masi Strada Vita bike into e-bike for $1300. My local bike shop recommends converting a Masi (or other nice bike) into E-bike with the bafang kit, which they do all the labor for. And that means they can do all...

    upgrade bafang mid-drive possible?

    I'm looking at getting my first ebike, and leaning toward an M2S or VoltBike model, both designed around a bafang 350w mid-drive. I want torque sensing, but ideally would like a throttle as well, which these don't come with. (I also looked at Juiced torque-sensing hub drives, but have read on...

    Guten Tag from the DFW Metroplex

    In November of last year I completed my first ebike using a Bafang BBSHD and a Priority Continuum Bicycle. For me, I enjoy cycling, but I've found an ebike brings back the exhilaration of being a kid and the excitement of freewheeling all over again. Long story short, I've parted ways with my...

All went very well, great installation, smooth ride, et al, 'till about a week ago when going up a slight grade I noticed a momentary power loss/hesitation. While in power assist with pedals, I...

    Narrowing down choices. . .

    New to the forum--very helpful resource! Forgive me for any naiveté; I'm in the information-gathering stage and there's a whole lot I don't know. I bought a Radwagon for my wife a couple years ago, which we love. I understand it's not a high quality piece of cycling machinery, but it serves...

    BBS01 on a 2017 Breezer Downtown 8 ST

    Getting back in the saddle after recovering from a broken leg I decided to get a new step through bike and swap over the BBS01 motor, rear cog, and commuting accessories from my old bike. Had to remove the Breezer chainguard so replaced it with a Hebie chainglider, which meant I had to remove...

    In regards to the Bafang G06 geared hub motor for instance, what's the internal difference between the 500W and 750W? Is there a noticeable difference in performance? What about between the BBS02 and BBSHD mid drives? I understand that peak output is determined by the controller/battery...
