Bbs02 mid drive kit
Good (i guess) afternoon, and sorry for rather long silence, but behind that time stands the whole story...so, where shall we begin... After long and detailed research i logged in and ordered bbs02b kit with 'luna killer whale 48v battery'- as a energy sorce for the system. The drive was originally purposed to be build on to a trek marlin 6 2015. ..as a european and inhabitant of the kingdom of Netherlands i received the package round about two months later ( hazmat included in the package) The box- as i beheld it for the first time- was looking like weathered sea wolf with the marks of its long toils and journeys, but as happy as i was- that it has finally come- just checked the contents, the box was casted away. and i - with my marlin- went to the shop to remove BB, discovered that the chain rings were for some time happily eating through the chain stay ...even used epoxy metal resin to fill the gaps and add some body to the stay - but you know " when you create a strong point- in fact you create two weak points", so i distrusted the frame ever after, and... it was almost christmas anyway, so i went to the store, bought new marlin 6 2018- with BB removed upon arrival, took a christmas holiday leave from work... and finaly , started carefully fitting first parts... Well...the drive looks as if it was made for this bike and- in fact i received it completely user ready ( That'd saved me from many hours of searches and mistakes),... Trek- along the years- has slightly changed the frame geometry of their 'Marlin' line, (and this time i got it in 18.5") so now, the 'killer whale' looks much more substantial mounted on the down tube, but still, there remains enough space for adjustments (also,very important: balance correction) but in my opinion,visually the result is much more pleasing to the eye than it had in trek's previous frame... ...with the kit, i' ve got the standard 46t and Luna ' mighty' 30t (- very solid and esthetic piece of work). To fit 46t chain ring, i had to put 1.2mm m6 rings, between the motor and the chain ring... Travelling mostly on the flats, i clearly feel that even for 46t this motor leaves not really much to do, combined together, are capable to give me much more power than i truly need... Before the purchase, i was torn between bbs02 and bbshd, and 750w version became my final choice,... ...but enough of my problem Once the waterproof plugs are fitted on the main power wires ( i went for anderson (SB50) and something more solid will protect the wires under bottom bracket, and... My friends, nobles, i'm glad to say: i'm equally pleased with the business and with the product, Special thanks for knowledge shared on the site .
