    I really wouldnt bother with replacing your controller.... supposedly with a gear sensor version controller the shift happens faster...but i have not noticed a big difference between the two. Also if you just get a y connector you can have both e brake cut offs and the gear sensor if thats what you want.

    Still wouldn't mind knowing what the difference is between the two controller versions. Are these new controllers better than the stock version that came with the motor?

    The gear sensor can be plugged into the brake input, avoiding a replacement.

    I'm thinking of getting the gear sensor. This means I also need to upgrade the controller... what is the difference between the two controller versions?

    This from Radim Mráz

    "The difference between GS-I and GS-D is in SW setting (there is no any mechanical different). We have this difference in SW, because both shifting systems (hubs and derailleurs) do have different shifting process. But I can't share more detailed information as it is our know how :-)"

    Here's what Karl thinks,
    Are there different gear sensors for IGH and Derailers?
    Yes, figure out what setup you’re using and get the right gear sensor for your setup. If you are using a CVT like a Nuvinci N330, N360, N380 or N171 or if you are using a Roloff IGH then you will want the gear sensor for standard derailleurs (not the IGH gear sensor). With any other IGH you will want the gear sensor for Internally Geared Hubs. I know, it’s really confusing, blame someone else, I just work here.

    Does the upgraded controller at http://lunacycle.com/motors/bafang-m...ntroller-3077/ have the gear sensor plug? What's the difference between the derailleur version and the IGH version of the gear sensor?

    I had a warranty return on a wonky BBSHD controller and Eric was kind enough to give me the option of upgrading to a GS. I have a couple of IGHs and a 10-speed deraileur on my ebikes. Honestly, I plan to try it on the IGHs if possible since I have become comfortable with the backpedal technique on my deraileur bike and I think the GS may be well suited for use by my spouse and other relative novices. i e it might help with training to not have to worry about being embarrassed by grinding gears, just being able to shift at stop signs seemed to be a welcome effect of our previous Nexus 3s.

    Americans don't buy 250 and 350 as a rule. I love my BBS01. Nicest conversion ever. One will stay in daily service.

    With a 250 W motor changing gear causes fewer problems. On my current build I am adding a cut out button which I will use for gear changing (Nexus 8 Inter) if I need to. I don't have and will not have brake cut off switches because I don't have a throttle.

    Ok, I should be able to manage that, are they available to existing BBSHD customers yet? Link...?

    Just make sure all the connectors are well seated. They are all Anderson except one.
