Stabilizer Bar Used On Tadpole Trike
My BBS02 is installed out on the boom of my tadpole trike and I wanted it to be under the boom and there was no easy way to keep its torque from rotating it up. My first attempt at a torque arm snapped at the BBS02 bolt on the first test. My second one held up for a year, but it was ugly and I worried about it breaking also. When I learned that Luna had made this stabilizer bar to fit the BBS02 I purchased it. Perfect fit and no more worry. I just ordered another one for a friend that I am going to help with the installation of a BBS02 on the boom of his tadpole trike. While it may seem a little pricey, it's well worth it for a very unique problem solver.
Clean looks by itself, but not worth the money
I bought it because my BBSHD motor could not be tightened with the BBSHD kit parts. The piece is fairly thick, but machining is so-so. I had to grind the holes a bit to get the mounting bolts through them. For my Framed X5 fat bike at least, the unit's shape was NOT AT ALL aligned to provide a solid mounting to anywhere in the frame. I had to bend the unit at an odd 3 Dimensional angle and then connect it to another mounting plate bent at 3 dimensional angle (basically, a twisted U shape to connect between motor and bike frame) to secure it to bike frame. A lot of work definitely which makes me wonder if it wouldn't have been better to make a custom fitting unit from the start and save the $21 charged for this unit.
