    2018 Giant Anthem BBSHD


    #2
    How's the mighty mini working out? Those are neat little batteries. I have been riding a bike a lot lately with an 8.5ah battery on it, it's suprising the range I'm getting with some pedaling thrown in, not running the battery down too low either.

      Nice stealthy build! Cover up that XT90 connector and strap the battery cable to the seat post and you wouldn't notice anything. Nice job.

        Thanks, yes there were a couple of challenges, I used the press fit 41mm bottom bracket adapter from Luna keyed with their custom Y bracket for the BBSHD. I drilled three holes in the underside of the bottom bracket and through the adapter and knocked in three roll pins then cut them off with a dremel. I figured that adapter will probably start to turn with 6kgs of motor hanging off it. The roll pins put a stop to that ever happening.
        The Mighty mini battery is great.... I'll get a good 15-18kms out of it with some peddling and a few downhill runs. I also bought a 18.5Ah 52v triangle battery from EM3ev. Its a beautiful battery but in hind side I wish I'd just bought two more might minis instead. Throw those in a back pack and just swap them out if I'm doing a XC ride. Now I have to put 4.5kgs of triangle battery in a backpack and use a curly cord to the motor, which works fine but I think three mighty minis would've been better and lighter. Its so much fun out their on the Giant with the BBSHD I'm going to sell my Honda CRF450X as I don't use it anymore.

          The Mighty Mini batt in a seat bag works well for me, too. I'm getting about the same mileage (BBSHD, 12 mile r/t commute with one 1/4 mile steep hill). Using throttle bursts only at stoplights and skirmishes.
          Thinking about buying a second for loger weekend rides.
          I hid the battery cable with some black 3/8" Techflex split braided sleeve wrap.

            Nice.... I put my MM in a topeak waterproof bag in case I get caught in a deluge, just have to cut a hole in it for the cables. That's cool water wont run up the cable.

              I bought two of these guys and have been thrilled! I love having the second one in the pack just in case. What I wanted the most is the look of a standard bike but have enough power to commute or ride trails without a bulky battery.
