10,000 mile ride around America in under 5 months shows why Bafang® mid-drive e-bike motors are often considered the best choice.
Hats off to this chap, riding roughly 70 miles a day for nearly 5 months is quite a feat even if you do have a little battery powered assistance.
He's a professional electric bike mechanic who he knows his stuff, so it's interesting to note that his motor of choice for the journey was a Bafang BBS, the same as recommended and supplied by Brighton E-bikes.
The photo above highlights one of the many advantages of mid-drive motors compared to wheel hub motors.
The diary of his journey is a good read and there's some great photography in there too.
