    hello members; having a little trouble posting to introductions, so I thought I would at least try here. I have three documented
    builds for fat tire Fuji Wendigo 2.3 19" frame BBSHD 2017 model. (great success!)
    Also have 2015 Diamondback Dual Sport about 17" frame; (looks very nice with downtube flaring integrating with battery width.
    I have slideshows of these builds and videos on my Youtube: Rotos Performance E-Bike

    I would like to share this, but can't seem to figure out an address on introductions.

    Thanks folks

      hello again,
      the other build 206 or so Univega Alpina 700 large frame; added hydraulic brakes, fox duke fork; this bike was hanging in garage for
      10 years no riding! We are on a 20% grade hill, and I was not getting out prior to e-biikes.

      thanks folks, and please feel free to redirect me

        Add the 2015 cooker charge maxi 2(Fat bike) to the compatible list as long as you use the 120 mm bbshd. Already had the luna lander fat bike fork installed and then added the bbshd, a 48 volt battery in a hailing "shark pack" and got it installed. See pic. Chainline is a bit whacked but the chain guide helps keep the chain happy on the 36 tooth lekkie bling ring with the 11-36 six cogset through a Shimano clutched 10 speed xt derailleur. Works great towing my disabled son in a bike trailer and for just tearing up some Canadian snow!

        Pic with trailer was pre Ebike build....

          2008 Giant Reign 1, XL frame, BBSHD, 52V 14s4p GA. XT brakes and derailer. 10 speed 11-36. Maxxis Minion DHF 26x2.5 tires.

          I've had this build for over a year and commute 18 miles daily. Took it mountain biking this weekend and was blown away with the handling on steep single track!

            Just out of curiosity--what would make a bike incompatible with a mid-drive kit?

            Hello everyone, I’m new to this whole new joyous world after many years of struggling up my local hill climbs at 3mph to get to work sweat-drenched and exhausted... meh, too much frustration to mention here. The shorthand version of my story is, you’ll never catch me riding a non ebike in the foreseeable future!
            I did the BBS02 conversion from Bafang USA direct... they shipped within the first hour of ordering! 48v 11Ah Dolphin pack. Don’t care for going too fast, just love getting help on the hills.

            •1996 Kona Lava Dome 20” chromoly mountain bike.
            •No mods needed, except the black stock cranks will be replaced with Lekkie offset
            cranks.
            •The screw for the cable guide (underneath the bottom bracket) needs to be unscrewed for installation, don’t forget to screw it back in once you’ve snugged the motor up.
            •Monitor (horizontal orientation) fits perfectly on the Rivendell Bosco bars over the stem clamp.

              I know that many are against putting the kits on cheaper bikes but if anyone cares, The 68mm BBSHD kit fits perfectly on a Mongoose Status 2.6. I do have it and it works well.f

              18" frame, 29er full suspension, disc brakes (company sending me new ones as these jerk dangerously when held hard) 7 speed rear cassette.

                Guys this thread is meant for specifically documenting compatible bikes and documenting successful builds, not for asking if a bike is compatible...please make a new post if asking that question..

                  2012 Scott Spark 29 Comp large

                  Just have to say that the Shimano 445 180/160 disk brakes are hands down the best I have ridden with. I didn't have the proper crank arm remover and the screw I used on the Isis previous to this broke. Got out the tie rod pickle fork and a baby sledge and beat and beat until the arms gave it up. The triangle is a bit small and has the shock adjuster and a cable anchor in the way. Ground the anchor down and it's a bit of a chore but the batt now goes in and comes out. On a previous build I flipped the shock 180 degrees but you can't on this one.
                  Ran over to REI and got a few 2mm bb spacers and to Lowes for 2 6x20mm bolts. I will return to REI and get a couple WTB trail boss tires as the original tires are way worn down. Ditched the old chain and installed a KMC X8 EPT.
                  Got her to 34mph on her maiden voyage and wasn't even in high gear.

                    Nice job managing to fit that shark in there!

                    Thank you, Sir. It went in by hand the first time but had to pry it out with 2 screwdrivers. The bent seat tube doesn't help matters.

                    I may have left out the best part- I got the HD kit with 850 display for $555

                  1995 Diamondback Sorrento. Purchased new in '95 and rode it a lot but always kept it nice and clean. Decided I wanted to try an e-bike to commute to work but could not justify the cost of a new pre-built unit. After some research I happened upon Luna Cycle and this forum and I decided to go with a BBS02 kit. Equipped the kit with the 750 color display, gear sensor, hand brake cutoffs, 46T chain ring, 52 V Shark and the Luna tool.
                  I took my time installing the kit (1 month) as I had to change the brake and rear derailleur cables which meant waiting for parts to come in (and other commitments). Using the stock chain right now with a missing link but have a new SRAM P830 ready to go on.
                  Removal of the bottom bracket was simple and didn't require any exotic tools. The chain line is not that great as the chain will come off the chain ring in 1st gear. For now I adjusted the H-stop to prevent shifting to 1st. I have a chain guide on order to see if I can fix it (just because). I might go with one of the new Luna chain ring later.
                  Still need to get a rack, lighting and a bell of some sort. Maybe even a better rear view mirror to replace the clip-on Bell I have now.
                  Hooked up the computer and using Penoff's program I saved the default Luna controller settings.I will play around with configuring the controller when I get some time as there is some great info here on different settings.
                  Only was able to ride once since finishing but it went well. Way faster than I expected!
                  Here are some pics from various stages of the build.

                    here is my 2000 Specialized Stumpjumper FSR Enduro Pro, frame size Medium I had in my garage. it did fit a 48v 14ah hailong "shark" battery in the triangle. mounted the water bottle cage bolt to the bottom, inserted battery and pivoted into triangle. used dremmel to cut channels for heavy duty zip ties at top, and used a velcro strap for extra peace of mind. does not move at all. Hope this helps others searching for frames/ ideas. BBSHD with lekkie 36t ring, I did need two thin spacers to get proper clearance. ($10 at california ebike). Couldnt fit a 52v battery, but at least I could use my old MB.

                      Kona Kikapu for BBSHD----NOT SO GOOD! The frame deflects a huge amount with even moderate (400w) power. The whole bike feels woozy under power. I'm reinstalling the BBSHD on my old Marin Rift Zone, with a criss-crossed frame!

                          My bike is a 2018 Reid Vice 2.0 Large plus bike running a BBSHD and a Jumbo Shark 17.5ah 52v. The bbshd is the 83mm special order from bafang so I only needed to space the drive side and gives perfect chain alignment with a Lekkie 42t bling ring that has never thrown the chain in 1300km. The bike has 40mm rims and 27.5 x 2.8 tyres, I upgraded the brakes and rotor sizes (Shimano Deore and 200/180mm) and fitted an XTR 10spd shifter with the 2 up and 4 down shift function and a mandatory gear shift sensor with a 1000w motor. Also I added a more comfortable gel seat with a suspension seat post to make make trail riding more enjoyable.
                          Hope this helps anyone starting a diy build

                            New Scott Aspect 970. Frame size is large.Standard BBS02 68 mm fits fine.
                            The crank bearing assembly was very difficult to remove. Had to clamp some hardwood boards either side of the socket and frame with a large woodworking clamp to stop the socket from slipping out and then all my weight on an 18 inch pipe wrench to loosen (clockwise to loosen on the drive side). The BBS02 shaft was difficult to insert into the frame. Had to smash it in with a hammer and wooden block until a few threads were through and then pulled it in with the large threaded nut. Everything else was a piece of cake. Chain alignment is good, shifts through all gears fine.I left the front derailer on as I didn't have a chain break tool. Battery is a 52 volt 13.5 AH unit fastened with magnets that are screwed to the water bottle nuts.
                            I now have 25 kilo meters on the bike and am very happy with the operation. The throttle feature is a nice touch.I'm 60 and haven't been on a bike for 20 years so I can take a break from pedalling and give it a little shot of throttle once in a while. I even used the walk feature today when I came to a rooted hill on a dirt trail that looked a little ominous to me.
