    Motobecane TAZ3 29er plus sized tire bike.

    Thinking of getting a Motobecane Taz3, with the intention of installing a BBSHD on it.

    This bike looks really sick and i love it. Can anyone help me determine if a BBSHD will fit?
    Bottom Bracket info from the website is:
    "FSA BB-7100 MTB MegaExo Bottom Bracket-Ø24 Stainless bearing / English threading - 68/73 width"

    I'm not very experienced with BB standards and what i really need, but I think "English threading" is a good sign? lol. How about the raised chain-stay, will that actually make it easier to mount?

    Hopefully someone has some insight. I was looking at this bike for a BBSHD build as well.

      The linked article below helps to explain about the different bottom brackets. You can google the botton bracket it has or might even call FSA and ask for specs. I believe the standard 68/73mm BBSHD will fit right in with no issues.

      Now will the 52v Wolf pack fit inside the triangle?

        Here's a thread about a similar raised chainstay bike, and a couple conversions.

          Did anyone get the Motobecane Taz3 for a conversion? If yes, would you be able to share the dimensions of the triangle for your frame size? I would love to do this conversion but don't really want to give up on my EM3EV small triangle battery. Thanks!
