    I'm looking to order up the BBSHD. I'm curious that since the shaft just slides through the bottom bracket rather than secured how the cyclone would mount (using a new crank that is screwed in place). I would like to ensure that the threads dont get messed up with the Bafang in the case that I would want to remove the motor. Does anyone have experience removing a Bafang and reinstalling regular cranks? Did the threads get messed up?

      Hi, quick question, what’s the pedal axel size on the stock Bafang crank arms? 1/2 or 9/16? I’ve searched but I don’t see it listed anywhere.
      thanks in advance.

        Hello

        first post, first time. I greatly appreciate this forum. And I'm having trouble finding bikes like mine.
        I bought a Fuji Wendigo Fat Bike 2017 and it is 17 in. It has a 100 m m bottom bracket.

        As I read through different forms I found that a lot of people are saying that they would have rather have gotten the 120, due to clearance issues. My bike as ridden rubs the wheel In the back. My question is if I get 120, what are the main issues? What are your return policies and do anybody have any pictures of a Fuji Wendigo as a successful build?

        I found two or three on YouTube one of which is a complete build but may as well be silent, and another is a gentleman's it's actually on this form. Search wendigo. But it's only a few pictures and then him riding it. I was just hoping for more information about my bike in particular. And now I realize I should just ask questions about 100 mm bottom bracket.

        what are a few of the pitfalls of building on a fatbike frame? Shall i consult my psychologist first? And which hacks have been figured out per your experiences? Any post build advice would be appreciated.

        also maintenance? Summer v winter rides? Chains?

        thanks again!

            Thanks i looked through a few of them. Found info on tires, others. Was looking more for perhaps the benefits and pitfalls of ordering a 120mm over a 100mm BBSHD whilst hanging on a 100mm BB. Chain clearance issues mainly, yet my understanding (though limited) is that 120 gives u more opportunities with chain clearance and tire sizing. Just looking for opinions pre purchasing.

            thanks for your assistance. You have another interest. Looking to move from PA. Main benefits of Lutz FL? I am currently working in my county courthouse as an accounts payable specialist. Thanks.

              My first bike was supposed to be an Electra Fat Cruiser with a 100mm BB. I stumbled on an Electra 7d with regular balloon tires cheap. I already had the 100mm BBSHD so I had to make a spacer for it to fit the 66mm BB.

              my bushing with one of Luna's

              This made the pedals offset a bit but I never thought about it or noticed it. If you are going to do a fat bike the 120mm BBSHD could be your best choice because any fat bike will either be a 100mm or a 120mm BB. If you change your mind and want to build a different fat bike the 120 will be sure to fit. A 20mm spacer is small compared to mine. I have put quite a few different people on that bike and no one has noticed the pedal offset...…………..calfee

                thank you so much I really appreciate you taking time to answer me. This is what I was hoping to get back from everyone I really appreciate you helping me out. Spacers can be an issue as well but that's something I have to look into Beyond just ordering another one of their kits. 20 mm spacer, yours look amazing!

                I greatly greatly appreciate your time calfee. 120 it IS.

                riding it in the city you do look a little off on a bike with 4.5" wheels... but it IS too much fun not to.

                please enjoy FL. Jealous lookin at deciduous trees. I need PALM!
                thanks again.

                  I'm getting ready to pull the trigger and order a BBSHD and battery for my Yuba Mundo version 2 cargo bike that has served me for over 5 years. From reading the forum it appears a proven candidate for a BBSHD install. I have a couple of questions below I can't seem to locate specific answers to:
                  -I live in a very flat area and we have no hills (Davis, CA). What is the best chainring for my terrain for good speed? Looks like the default ring on the order page is the 46T
                  -I have disk brakes. Is there a motor shutoff that works with the existing brake levers? Or is it something I have to order separately?
                  -I was going to go with the stock display (the DPC-07) and universal thumb throttle. Any comments on these?
                  -I have a 68mm bottom bracket shell. Do I need the spacer and adapter kit? The order page says it's highly recommended.
                  -Do I need the "Gear Sensor?"

                  Any help or comments with the above questions?

                  My current shopping list is as follow:
                  -BBSHD
                  -52 volt Luna Liquid Wolf Vs LG MJ1 13.5ah. I don't have a great distance to commute, and this is overkill for capacity, but once you get to a certain price point I'm inclined to spend the extra $50 for the better battery. I wish it had a more subtle color. I would prefer to keep this bike as low-key looking as possible.
                  -52 volt 3 amp charger
                  -the Luna Wrench (I have lots of tools, but they're not bike tools)

                  Any comments or additions to the above list?

                  Your experience and expertise are appreciated.

                  Don

                    Hi, I would like to know if I can use a Bafang 43v battery in a Bafang bbs02 48v 750w motor and LCD 850c.
                    Thanks and regards.

                      The controller is programmed to cut out at 41V so while this setup may work you will likely have a reduced battery range. I'm not sure if you can reprogram the controller to go any lower than 41V.
