I have a new Giant Talon 2 (2022) and a BBSHD motor. I have seen many posts of people putting this motor on the Talon 2 (though pre-2022) and other similar Talons. I am finding it is only fitting when hanging straight down. Am I missing something? The diagonal tube extends slightly past the bottom bracket to allow for internal cable routing (and I think I see this in pictures of others who have installed this motor).

This is blocking the motor from being able to rotate up.

Did they maybe make a change in 2022 (though when I looked in the store, the 2021 seemed the same), or am I doing something wrong? I can't rotate it before putting through the bracket as the mounting tab would hit the frame.

You may have to carefully grind or file down the offending part on the frame. Hopefully the cables would not cause interference after that. I most often read about the internal diameter of the frame bottom bracket being the issue.

I was almost sold on griding this down, but I am worried that it is more than just the lip of the tube. I wonder if the fact that the entire down tube hangs lower than the bb will mean that I won't have clearance to rotate the motor. I don't want to grind this and then find it still won't work. I do see that there is clearance for the cables, but I can't quite get an accurate mental picture of where the motor will finally sit.


A couple more pictures to help illustrate:

The thin red line is where the bottom of the tube would be if it didn't bottom out right to the bb.

Here is another angle:

And another video just for giggles:

Cut to reroute....smooth to stop nicks....spread to make sure BBSHD or whatever hugs nicely.

How much did the bike cost? The old rule 0f thumb for the shadetree mechanic was "modify the least expensive part". Could you shave a bit off the motor case and make it work? I probably would have already shaved down and deburred the frame.

how much did my bike cost with the BBSHD ?

Mate I bought a BBSHD from lunacycle and paired it with a 60v 45ah battery. Start slow and work yur way up...that's what i did....hurts sometimes when we make mistakes.... but you can do it mate...Just take a bit off and spread those cables...make sense?
