    i live in Toronto where there are a decent amount of hills (nothing really too killer) and have been doing uber eats delivery for the last 3 days and it has been taking a toll on my knees biking up and down. I'm trying to figure out if the BBSHD is overkill and if that the bs02b would be good enough and save on the bucks? I'm pretty much going to be going up and down these hills for 3-4 hrs at a time delivering food.

      I would not say you absolutely need bbshd for the torque, but it is more waterproofed with additional gasket on the secondary reduction housing. You might want that extra waterproofing if using it in the snow and rain. And even then, additional waterproofing is a good idea. See this page, the FAQ, for best practices for commercial use https://electricbike.com/forum/forum...ter-repository

      Hi,

      I want to know if the BBSHD will fit onto this bike?
      https://www.progearbikes.com.au/prod...ng-mtb-black-1

      It says the bottom bracket is XR-BB04... but I can't find information on that standard.

      Here is what i've found regarding bottom bracket compatibility,..

      Apparently the BB30 is ideal

        You probably can make standard bbshd work. No promises, but you should be fine

      I'm looking at my first build, primarily for a commuter. I don't NEED the extra power, but an extra $100-$150 isn't going to make a difference in this build. SO, given that info, would I be better off with the BBSHD or saving the money and getting the BBS02?

        BBSHD has more water resistance and is easier to service, as well as having a bit more installation flexibility. While these are not huge differences and the bbs02 is widely regarded as a good motor, like you said that extra bit of case is not much more in order to have a model that is arguably better in every way.
