TSDZ2 frame specs?

Post by Chuckles1 » Jan 11 2021 3:28pm

A gentleman from Norway was kind enough to provide the specifications below for BBS01, and presumably BBS02. Is there a similar image available to show allowable dimensions for standard install of TSDZ2? Not into bashing in chainstays..

So it's buyer beware, I guess. Seems like the first thing the marketing dept. would publish when the product was introduced. Frustrating not to find THE most important information info on the TSDZ2.

Why would anyone buy one if they can't verify it will fit before purchasing? Who wants a $400 paperweight?

Chainline and Q factor are bad enough from what I gather, without getting long spindle version to fit 68mm BB shell and clear the chainstay.

This is the only one I ever found.
I added the 130mm dimension.

Have you seen the TSDZ2 fitting promo video?

Thank you, yes I'd seen that video, but rewatching it I noticed that he used a "scale" inserted into the empty shell, which he rotated, saying to make sure it doesn't touch the chainstay. I'm guessing the scale comes with the kit when you buy it, but I need it to see which if any of my bikes the 68mm BB motor would fit before shelling out for the kit.

I've never seen or heard mention of the scale anywhere else. Best estimate I've heard is a gentleman who said outside of chainstays needs to be <3" across at 3" from center of BB shell.

I have just received a TSDZ2 and will be doing building a build with it this Friday. I can try to make the same measurements as in the picture you posted.

In the meantime you can read up about bottom bracket standards here: viewtopic.php?f=28&t=80319. The TSDZ2 will only fit BSA 68mm or 74mm. There are however adapters from other standards to BSA.

Mine was bought in the middle of 2019 so think is still what anyone is getting now.
At the yellow line the chainstays are 70 mm across to the outside edges and look to be symmetrical on that cyclocross frame.
Photo is taken from the top (obviously) but also slightly forward. Trying to show that there is a 1-2 mm gap at the tightest point.
According to the schematic that yellow line is 65 mm back from the BB centre line.
