    There is apparently a new Bafang BBSHD like unit that has a torque sensor but the few that have made it to the USA so far are a little buggy. Sounds like its something they maybe built as an OE unit for some bike company and the bike company did all the external stuff including the software and no one else has quite got all the more universal bits to all play nice with them yet. I don't recall hearing what widths they were gonna come in or any sort of time table when they should be available.

    Made my day the battery fit so well! Now I'm searching options for a 120mm torque sensing mid-drive. I had hoped to use the Toseven DM-02, but currently 110 is the widest available. My hope is they will produce a 120mm version soon.

    Wow, looks like it was made to fit that frame.

    Just picked up a medium frame bucksaw that I plan to mid-drive. After flipping the rear shock, it looks like I will be able to use the same bottle style battery I use with my other bike. Excited to get this project going!

    "This was pretty much not going to be safe under power, so I lamented and researched my brains out trying to come up with a solution. I attempted to space out my cassette by taking some of the lower cogs off, and using them as spacer behind the granny gear, to try and bring the chain closer to center... but the derailleur just wouldn't clear the gears when they were any closer to the swing arm. Plus, the chain stay is pretty tight, and the chain would rub on the chain stay when the larger cogs where moved outboard. I debated grinding down the bottom bracket shell on the drive side, as I still had plenty of clearance..."

    There is something you can do to help with the restacked casette issue.
    There are derailer hanger extensions that drop the hanger down, and sometimes out also.

    They don't cost much. So might be worth a try.

    I made my own extension. I bought 2 Wheels Mfg. replacement hangers and cut the opposite ends off fo them and welded the long parts together. It gained about 6T on the casette size. Since I was using all 8 gears I kept the derailer in as far as stock. If you're moving the low gear out, one of the offset versions might be good for you.
    Buying from Wheels I knew the alloy for welding and knew they weren't cast. So still bendable for adjustment if needed.
    100% USA made replacement derailleur hangers. Offering over 260 hangers for 6000 different bicycle frames.

    Per the manual, you have a speed sensor fault - make sure the magnet is aligned with mark on the sensor, and swings by so close it almost hits ...

    Your post inspired me! I just got a medium frame Bucksaw and I'm installing it right now. Can you tell me where you got those spacers that go on either end of the bottom bracket shell to secure the motor with the o-ring?

    I recently finished building a non e bike version. I used a 27.5+ fork instead of a Bluto. The JJ 26 x 4.0 tires clear the fork. I also run WTB 26 x 2.4 (actually clse to 2.6). Both tires work on 50mm rims.
    Occasional good deals come up on ebay for new bikes and frames.

    perfect job. just bought a used buckksaw 2 from 2015 like yours. Is there a reason why you didnĀ“t use the adapter from luna like this https://lunacycle.com/bbshd-locking-...92-86-5mm-bbs/ or this https://lunacycle.com/pf41-bb-adapte...mm-120mm-73mm/ ?
    I really like this bike, I want to change the rims to fit 4,6" tires on it and I try to get the original frame bag from revelate for building a custom batterypack with my spotwelder. On the other hand I have to say, that the sharkpack that you use looks also very nice. What sprocket size do you use?
