    Something similar to the zip wire loom is the spiral wire loom. It needs to be wrapped around like tape but doesn't have the gaps to collect dirt.
    Spiral Wrap is an easy way to bundle multiple cables into one. The wrap design allows for cable breakouts to create specific re-routing and replacement of wires. Use this wire wrap like a tool that holds cable tight while protecting from abrasions.

    I just picked that link for the pretty colors. Not spamming for them.
    Then there is good old flexible metal conduit.

    Forgot to add - Bafang perceived a value in protecting these wires and added a screwed on plastic wire cover to the M625 motor (the possible future BBSHD replacement model). Too bad they also added the need for a proprietary battery - gee, thanks Bafang.

    Yup, I been thinkin about the same thing. Was going to get plastic split loom in the color of my bike, but mud will cake up between the grooves making a muddy mess a pain to clean. So may use PVC pipe split down the back and painted, or maybe this wire channel that's paintable. Those covers really stay on tight. I can cut little slots in it and zip tie it to the under tube. It will mud clean up way easier. I was thinkin the zipper flexies for the higher up wiring that don't get so dirty. My bike is white so its already a great color. They got black zippers too for black handle bars. I may do that in the handle bar area. All hose cleanable and zip tied in place.

    I first thinly wrap the wires with electrical tape then install a "zipper" style sleeve cord, available from Amazon and elsewhere - comes with a handy installation tool:

    "Shield " for BBSHD wiring?

    I just built a full suspension trail bike up and the wires seem so vulnerable based on where they come out of the motor. I'm also worried about water incursion. I am wondering if anyone has a good way to address the unfortunate placement of the BBSHD wiring. I was thinking about using a few layers of aluminum tape, but that stuff sticks so well that it'd never come off.
Working...
