I bought a BBSHD and a Giant Talon 2. Unfortunately, it does not fit. See:


People have suggested grinding down the tube, but I have not ridden this bike more than about 20 yards and I would rather return it for something I know will work. I'm looking for suggestions for a bike that I know will work. I am looking for:
- Hard tail
- Hydraulic brakes
- $700 - $900

I had originally had a 1x as a requirement (why pay for a derailleur I am going to remove), but some people have pointed out chain line issues with them when converting. At this point I just want a bike I know I can put the motor on.

Any suggestions?
