      Here is the pic with my new dolphin 13.5 ah battery (am almost certain that a shark would have fit ( I mocked up both of them with some dollar tree foam board) but liked the way the dolphin looked and fit better. Here is my original build notes with my bottle battery (mismeasured and thought it would fit but not a chance) http://electricbike.com/forum/forum/...eels-and-bbshd

            BBSHD on a 2016 Priority Eight

            First build for me, and it was pretty straight forward once I came to the understanding that, with the off-the-shelf parts currently available, BBSHD + Shimano Nexus / Alfine != Gates Centertrack Belt. I am a former work commuter, but stopped when my health let go (two kidney transplants) - I need to get back on the bike for the exercise / mental release.

            Bike - 2016 Priority Eight, size "medium" (19")
            Motor package - Luna Bafang BBSHD, color display, cable brake levers, Shark battery case

            Changes to the frame consisted of:
            1. cleaning up a little over-weld within the 68mm bottom bracket tube with a curved hand file
            2. grinding down the bottom down tube cable bracket
            Motor package changes:
            1. added mounting hole to Shark battery case, to move case up & away from the drivetrain
            Existing drivetrain changes:
            1. Dumped the Gates centerline CDN pulleys and belt, and went with the Eclipse 42t chain ring to a standard Shimano Alfine 18t cog
            Optional changes made:
            1. dumped the Tektro HD-M330 hydraulic brakes, went with Bafang switch levers / TRP Spyre-140 calipers
            2. for now, removed the fenders, for easier build access
            3. increased rear tire size from 32 to 37
            4. dumped azz-hatchet seat for a "wide-load" seat
            Optional other purchases:
            1. Park portable stand
            Future potential changes:
            1. dump Shimano Nexus Eight for a 3-speed - then Shimano all gone!
            2. might go with a low-twenties rear cog
            What I'd do differently
            1. I debated back & forth between this bike and the Spot Brand Five Points (approx the same price from eBay), this bike won mostly because of the 36 spoke wheels and the (future) fenders.
            End result - hauls myfat-azz around quickly and quietly with no complaints.

            Pictures to follow ...

            Six (6) Month follow-up:
            1. I wore through the stock Continental tires at an alarming rate, and am now trying Schwalbe Marathons (sans fenders, not enough clearance)
            2. The front rotor has been bumped up from 160 to 180mm, to make a not-bad front brake even better
            3. The nylon gear in the motor failed (melted internally), but Luna Cycle fixed the motor no charge!
            4. About 5 spokes in the back wheel snapped off at the hub side, and I ended up relacing the wheel with DTs
            5. Since the highest failure point has been wheel-related, I now have a spare set.
            Other than that, so far, so good

              Boy I hear you in the second paragraph! Went through what I thought was going to be a piece of cake bylateral hernia surgery that resulted in creating additional problems that required a second surgery after a one year wait in extreme pain... After two plus years of a couch potato life my first BBS01 eMTB served as my PT program and I got hooked. In much better shape now once again and even riding a FS MTB full pedal too.

              I try to keep these values in mind, and take it easy on the battery (keep the motor RPM up).

                  nice bike, don't forget to flip the fork...it's reversed!

                This was my first ebike build, and I tried to keep it inexpensive. I used a Windsor Kensington 8 from bikesdirect.com, and a Bafang kit with 52V dolphin pack from Luna Cycle. I added an adjustable stem and high rise handlebar because I like a relaxed, upright ride. Other than removing the chain guard the bike needed no modifications.

                This was an easy build (took less than 3 hours), and the bike was fast and handsome. The internal hub held up well, and resulted in a very clean look. Unfortunately the skinny tires were no match for the combined weight of my 200+ pounds, battery and motor, and whatever I happened to be carrying in my saddlebags. After half a dozen flats, 10 broken spokes, and even breaking the rear rack (okay so a slow cooker might have been a bit much), I moved the motor and battery to an old mountain bike I had laying around.

                But for the record, Windsor Kensington 8 works great with Bafang mid drive .

                  2017 Gravity Deadeye Monster, single speed. 21 inch frame. Everything went together smoothly (with some Dremel tool adjustment to the bottom bracket shell) in just a couple of hours. Using Luna Shark 52v GA battery. Mighty mini 30t chain ring, I have the Eclipse 42t as well but I've been having fun climbing hills so far. Planning on upgrading to hydraulic brakes.

                    Hopefully this is in the right thread. Might be of interest to other vertically challenged riders. Flat bar road bike. Small.



                    This is my second build with the same BBSHD. My first effort was on a road frame that was unsuitable due to tyre clearance issues and inadequate braking.
                    This was to be my shop bike so nothing fancy but I'm having so much fun it has turned into my main bike
                    Malvern Star Insight. (Malvern Star were a quality maker in Australia but lost their way a bit) This looks like one of their early off shoring attempts at Aluminium frames.
                    The bike the frame came with cost me $55 AUD from Gumtree. :-)
                    Frame size = small
                    BB = 68mm
                    Wheels Mavic 700C x about 28mm, Shimano Deore hubs. (These rims came off my Cannondale Tourer and are bomb proof)
                    Tyres Vittoria Randonneur 700C x 32mm. My favourite tyre. Hope the 32mm are as good as their 25mm versions.
                    Motor: Bafang BBSHD 1000 w
                    Battery:NT Style 48V 11.6Ah Samsung Battery (I too wish I had done more research on batteries) I got lucky, it only just fits the frame
                    Brakes : Direct pull V-Brakes using Bafang levers.
                    Bling ring 42T - No more chain drops and a good chainline on this bike.
                    Cranks - 165mm for my short legs. Hint, let the angle grinder be your friend. In hindsight I should have looked harder for an offset one on the LHS
                    Saddle - Giant off of the first donor bike. I know it looks odd but this is my shop bike after all.
                    I use 9 PAS settings and have recently used the programming settings to allow my natural high cadence. I still get a good workout this way and save the power for when I need it.

                    As this was my second build it went very smoothly. I've recently replaced my chainsets on my other bikes with Shimano Hollowtech so removing bottom brackets is easy for me.
                    The motor fit easily in the BB unlike my first build. Was probably 2 hours max for the build. I swapped brakes, gears etc. from my previous frame.
                    The whole project nearly came unstuck due to an unusual headset. I originally wanted to fit a threadless fork etc. but a suitable headset was going to cost more than the frame.
                    So to give me better headstem and bar options I got a quill stem adapter. I never knew such a thing existed. Brilliant!

                      I finally got my 2016 KHS 500 4 seasons fat bike outfitted with a BBSHD 1000 watt. Took a bit of work. I took the bike to my local bike shop to have the bottom bracket removed. Then I called Rhoshan at Bixtrix and ordered the 1000 watt. He recommended the 120mm version and I added the gear sensor, ebrake sensors and a 42 tooth sprocket.. It only took a couple small shims adding up to maybe 1/16" for the sprocket to fit without touching the chainstay. I installed a KMC ebike rated chain as well. At first It wouldnt start and I,m pretty sure it was one of the Anderson connectors. There was a seperate power wire in the box so I cut the battery cradle power wire off and soldered on the one that was in the box. We had a warm spell here in Feb so i decided to try the bike out. All i can say is wow I went down some trails walkers had made, about 2 " wide with about 2 feet of soft snow on either side, which eventually brought me to a road system where I stopped for a picture in front a National museum near where I work. Looking forward to mpore warmer weather.

                          yeah of course man ...cromoly is steel and steel is more than safe..its overkill.

                        #30
                        Yes, it is. Chromoly is a steel alloy with a bit of chromium and molybdenum. It is one of the 41xx grades of steel. It is an excellent choice for high performance electric bike frame.
