    2019 Salsa Timberjack SLX 27.5 Bafang BBSHD motor position

    So I purchased this bike to get on the trails and am considering adding a Bafang BBSHD to it. After reading all the info on compatibility I'm fairly confident the fit will be ok, but what I'm curious about is the position of the motor on frame due to the down tube. Looks like I will lose some clearance and it will hang under the chain ring? Would that be an issue? Maybe switch to 29er wheelset?

    Did you follow through with the build? How does the clearance look? I own a Timberjack and want to mount a bbshd as well.

      That is not an ideal bike for bbshd, the motor will hang straight down.
