The biggest complaint we have heard about the awesome new BBSHD 1000W Bafang mid drive is it has an ugly, heavy chain ring.
Luna Cycles was not only the first dealer in the world to have the BBSHD 1000W in stock (go here to buy), but now we are the first to offer an aftermarket chainring for the BBSHD. Also we wanted to create a piece of art and to really make a statement that we are hear to raise the game. We are so proud that this piece of art is created right here in California and we will never outsource it because California can do it better than China. They can copy us but then they suck.
This is a two piece unit and has everything you need to convert to a beautiful 48 tooth chain ring.
This comes stock with a 48 tooth sprocket, but it is a two piece and the sprocket can be changed out for one of our other sizes.
We will be offering a full range from 40T to 56T chainrings which you can change out. As always expect top quality and our "can't be beat" pricing.
Note that the only chainring shown is straight polished alloy. Chainrings will also be available in blue, black, red and these will be machined so that they will also have polished metal showing (see blue ring in pictures).
Changing from the old ring to our bling ring is a quick 5-10 minute job. Pull the crank off, then the old chainwheel and slap the new Eclipse ring and the crank arm back on.

IMPORTANT: The recommended way to run this chainwheel on a single speed is with a chain tensioner. If you don't have a chain tensioner and the chain falls off you can't just put it on the cog then put it on the chainwheel and turn the crank. Because the chain has to wrap around the front of the chainwheel and it is so massively offset you will bend the chainwheel and/or bend or break teeth as the chain gets way too tight. Instead you must take the chain off the cog and put the chain on the eclipse chainring then put the top of the chain on the cog and gently roll the bike backwards, stopping if there is too much pressure. It should put the chain back on without bending the Luna eclipse chainring. If you have a single speed without a tensioner and try to reinstall the chain on the cog first your broken chainring (it will break or bend the teeth) and will not be covered under warranty.
As seen in the comparison this chainring provides more offset than anything else on the market, to maximize the potential for the absolute best chainline and all the associated advantages that provides. This can sometimes be too much offset if you have a wide chainstay and it touches the chainstay. You can use our chainring spacers to move it away from the frame as much as needed (you can double or triple them up if you need to).
