The most difficult step is removing the old bottom bracket.

The 8-Fun BBS01/BBS02 kit is good for:

  • - hilly terrain
  • - bikes with standard 68mm-73mm bottom bracket
  • - the kit will work with any wheel size: 20" to 29" wheels
  • - minimalist fitting

This kit is not recommended if:

  • - your bike does not have standard bottom bracket (some bottom brackets have long shells, above 73mm, this kit won't fit).
  • - you have a downhill bike (the motor would be slung quite low and may get damaged easily).

Please download and read the user manual before purchasing

and watch this video:
Further reading, settings accessible from the C961 LCD:
For 73mm bottom bracket:
For 73mm bottom bracket, you will need two longer 20mm M6 allen bolts. Let us know when ordering.
See picture.

Important points to check:

  • - is the welding of your bottom bracket too weak to host this kit?
  • - You will lose your front derailleur, is this OK for you?
  • - where are you going to fit the battery?
  • - will the supplied brake levers work with your bike?
    If you have hydraulic brakes, the supplied brake levers are cable operated, so they won't work.

Frequently asked questions:

Would we need any special tools to fit it other than usual bike tools?
You need a crank puller and bottom bracket tool. If you can remove the bottom bracket then you don't need to buy anything else.
A C-spanner to tighten up the bottom bracket locring is useful, the first M33 lockring needs to be tightened up really well.
You need some space on the handlebars to install the LCD and the thumb throttle.
If you have combined gear shifter and brake levers, or hydraulic brakes, you'll need to buy hydraulic brake sensors.
You may also need a drill, 6.5mm drill bit if you need to install a couple of M5 rivnuts on the downtube to secure the battery cradle.
For more torque on offroad loose muddy inclines can the units controller be increased to 18a with a programming lead?
We don't support any reprogramming. It's outside your warranty.
Can you price match?
No, but we do offer discount in the price of BBS01B + battery.
Can you supply a gear sensor and hydraulic brake sensors?
We can only supply hydraulic brake sensors. The BBS01B we have in stock does not have a socket for the gear sensor.
Kits are not the same as bikes, which are supplied as complete items needing little or no intervention by the customer.
If we cannot fix a kit under warranty to you, we will offer you a refund.
Please note that this will not be a full refund.
It will be based upon the condition and age of the kit, the number of miles it has done and whether any of its component parts are missing. Please refer to our sales terms and conditions for details.
In some cases, faults are caused by the way the kit has been installed or misused (eg derestricted, despite our warnings) rather than by a manufacturing mistake within the kit itself. In those cases, we cannot cover the cost of repairs under warranty.

Why choose a chain drive?
A hub motor can only deliver limited torque, fine for flat roads and easy gradient but on steep hills, the motor will slow down, its efficiency and output power will drop rapidly.
A crank drive motor transmits power to the chain which can be adapted to the terrain using gears.
A CD motor can then be kept running at optimal speed all the time, saving battery and provides maximum power.
So if you want to ride hills, a chain drive bike is a must.
A crank drive motor performance chart:

Easy controls
Before riding, press the on/off next
to the trip computer on the left handlebar.
There are 3 level of pedal assist, 1 provides the least
assistance, 3 the highest.
Level 0 is no assistance to pedalling, you can still use the throttle for instant power if you need to.
Press the + and - button to select the desired level.
If you start pedalling, the pedal assist sensor will sense
that and supply about 80% of the energy.
The bike will woosh you along nicely - the motor is very quiet.
Maximum speed is 15mph and computer controlled.

If the location of your cage bolts do not fit the slots on the mounting rail, you may need to install one or two M5 rivnuts on the downtube. You don't need any special tool but if you have never done this before,Read this article or watch this video:

Make your own hydraulic brake sensors from the supplied levers

Many thanks to Terry Bell for his picture and notes.

The brakes are Hope Mono Minis.
As I remember it, once the magnet and spring have been removed from
the switch, the switch housing is free to be slid over and off the end
of the reed switch.
The reed switch has been covered in a piece of twin core flex sheaf
and glued and zip tied to the lever mounting.
A couple of pieces of the wire have been plugged into the end of the
sheaf to keep the water out.
The magnet has been glued on top of the brass pin that connects the
lever to the hydraulic piston.

1) Remove your bottom bracket and front derailleur
2) Insert the motor and install the motor hanger, fasten the bottom bracket.
3) Install the battery.
4) Install the LCD.
5) Connect the waterproof cable and the battery cable.
6) Install the thumb throttle and the brake handles.

Be aware of the physical issues around the bottom bracket:
Like the BBS01B, the TSDZ2 will fit bottom brackets whose shell is 68mm or 73mm long.
However, the space between the motor's bottom bracket and the motor's housing is not enough to accomodate your cable guide.
Also, if your bike has bosses on the lower half of the bottom bracket shell, you may have to grind them down.
If your bike has one mounted under the bottom bracket shell, please email us a picture for advice.
Also, if your bike has a side kickstand mounted close to or right behind the bottom bracket, please email us a picture for advice.

If you want to fit a double chainring:
The TSDZ2 will let you fit a 5-bolt 110mm BCD (bolt circle diameter) double chainring.
However, you must not fit a bigger ring than 44T. The TSDZ2 has 42T ring, maximum 95RPM. On bikes with cassette and 700C wheels, that is 30 mph.
A larger ring will increase stress and strain on the motor, you will strip the blue transmission gear between the motor spindle and the gearbox very quickly.
If you use a bigger ring than 42T, we can't guarantee your motor.
