    Motobecane TAZ3 29er plus sized tire bike.

    Thinking of getting a Motobecane Taz3, with the intention of installing a BBSHD on it.
    http://www.bikesdirect.com/products/...plus-bikes.htm



    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!

            Hello, I’m new to the site, and just ordered a Motobecane TAZ3 Trail this afternoon. I went back and forth on the size (odd top tube lengths on this design), opting for a 17.5” for my 5’9.25 height (no shoes).

            My plan is to install a Bafang BBSHD and maybe a custom built battery, but will prob just go for the Shark.

            I'm not going to do the electric modification until the winter, but I’ll keep everyone updated when I do!

              I built this bike using a bbshd ludicrous and the bike is awesome the wolf pack just barely fits but does fit.The bike is fast nimble and will climb anything you throw at it.I used the 17.5 frame

            For bike frame size you measure yourself with the relevant footwear installed by standing next to a wall and shoving a book up between your legs and marking at the top of it on the wall. That's your bicycling inseam. Frame size is usually listed by seat tube length. But what you actually need will vary all over the place. Riding position, handlebar type, and are they leaving room for a suspension seat post like comfort bikes and some hybrids do. But the cycling inseam is where you start. Height really doesn't tell you much. That number combined with your height will tell you more about torso length.

              You might look at the similar raised chainstay frame in this thread. There were some issues due to the larger chain rings the motors have.
