    I used the smaller lighter Luna BBS02 68-73 which fits the bike ( ~70 mm BB ) so well I can use all 9 rear cogs with a 44T CR no interference only a few spacer washers on the (2) 10mm bolts

    I'm pretty sure he used the BBS02 which only comes in the 68-73. If he did it with that you should be able to do it with the BBSHD. The HD has a larger gearbox so may need a few more MM of spacers than an O2 would but they seemed to know that so they made it like 5-10mm longer to give us more room for spacers.

    Which motor size did you use for the BBS kit? I am wondering if there are clearance issues with the chain stays using the standard, 68mm size or did you go to 100mm?

    Love the build Mike. I have an RZ120. RZs replaced Rush in 2010 I think. Anyway, I have a Bafang BBHSD 1,000W to install in it once I get COVID reunited with my RZ. My RZ is in Indonesia, I am now in Australia. Meanwhile my BBHSD goes rather well in my old rigid MTB rig. Happy riding there.

    Ed: The elastomer wellnut had pulled out, safety held in by the zip tie.
    I installed coated steel bushings under & over the wellnut flange feature , against the tube, to capture it securely this time.

    Yes, two round magnets, one into a factory rivnut and one into an elastomer 5mm 'well nut' and a safety zip tie.
    I ride on a flat rail trail or gravel roads, no 'big hits'

    So you have the V1 battery mounts, the 2 round magnets in the chrome metal shells? Did your bike have the mounting holes down there to start with? Or did you add them using something like riv nuts? I know they are pretty strong magnets but its pretty impressive it stays there and you don't appear to be using a strap for backup just in case.

    Everyone asks: "How far will it go?"
    39 miles to (47V)

    Now, I have a fast LUNA e-bike that runs like a racer.

    I tracked total range for my new bike and got total range of 39 miles over days of my normal riding

    Today though, the last mile, uphill I wanted to run to to 47V / finish the mileage test
    I'm at the pond bird watching and resting when 87 bicyclists?
    Kids and adults ride by, going up, as I faced away in front of my bike.
    I couldn't resist, level 5, pedal assist, 9th gear, to the hilltop & pass them all. ~18 mph
    I still had battery, went another 1/2 mile, they had all turned back to ride down.

    Thanks Man,
    It's exciting too, because despite study, planning, measurements;
    it might not work.

    And thanks to all eBike pioneers, stay positive.
    Fresh design and creativity continues along with the requisite "Kung Fu".

    Great to see another C-Dale converted! Giving old rides new life is cool.
