      Maybe we could edit the first post in the thread to a list rather than have to look through the entire thread and at all the photos to sort?
      I love the photos, but in my view nothing beats a simple list that a reader doesn't have to sift through a thread to find the base information?
      Sound like a good idea?

        Simple list as an additional thread will be valuable.


          Yes a simple list sounds good.

            Ok I'm starting to compile the list of bikes mentioned in this thread so that you don't have to trawl through the whole thread. Please don't forget to post the year your bike was manufactured as similar models from different years vary drastically. Also please let us know what type of bike it is for quick easy reference e.g if it is full suss/hardtail/road etc

              These we collected from several sources and the frame sizes were not listed.

            Added 2015 Gravity Bullseye 27.5 bike, 18" frame to thread


              Is there a similar list for the BBS02?


                We do have another thread in the DYI builders section which covers both, but currently only a few builds.

                  The list reads, "Bikes Confirmed to work with BBSHD/BBS02"

                  BBS02 bikes would be 68MM and 73MM Bottom Brackets only. The best way to sort is use google since the BBS02 has been out for more than 3 years. Search using the bike name and BBS02.

                  Here's an example, I used this method scores of times with great success..Just plug in the name of the bike you're interested in. It's a great place to start!
