      If u dont have tools harbor freight has the basics. Otherwise get a luna wrench and maybe a spacer kit. U may be ok with spacers but always good if not. May be good investment down the line. Enjoy. Ifs an amazing experience. Permasmile.

        Do you have the proper often special tools required to get your existing crank off and bottom bracket removed? Other than the spacing which you already have a handle on that is usually the next biggest obstacle when it comes to physical assembly. There are tons of styles of bottom bracket and crank arms these days so just identifying what you have and then what tools are needed can be tricky then there is actually doing it which first you have to know what turns which direction. Park Tools has some decent videos on Youtube on how to identify and work on various types and of course they show you what the tools look like and their part numbers.

        Then for down the road with the BBS its good to have a crank arm puller. You may end up having to tighten the unit which generally requires you to remove the crank arm. You may also end up changing chain rings which again requires the arm to come off. I think the cheap park tool is like $15 then if you buy a nice 8mm hex to re install its another $15. Luna has their tool kit that looks like it includes those tools plus a lot more for only $40 so if you don't have any bike specific stuff that looks like a nice assortment. I just looked at the list again and it doesn't have the 8mm but even has a a cassette lock ring and chain whip tool. Its all the way to the right in their store under EXTRA - TOOLS. It says name brand tools they just don't mention the name. I kinda doubt its Park quality stuff but for tools you may only use 1 or 2 times per year will likely do the job just fine. You can also get the Luna BBS wrench thrown in for an extra $10.

          MY BBSHD came with the tool that fit my hollow crank. Quick mounting need some spacers and to add a rivnut for the battery. What do you guys use for spacers?

            Most of the vendors that sell the BBS kits also sell spacers either individually or as an assortment kit. IF your old one had a lock nut that should work as a spacer. Wheels Mfg and a few others also make spacers but I'm not sure how common it is for shops to stock em and the seem to cost more than ones from a Bafang vendor.
