Bottom Bracket size Giant MTB's/Fat Tire

Post by AggErL » Jan 07 2020 1:33am

Starting my account off with Some Questions..

I'm choosing Giant as my Bafang Mid Drive BBSHD Conversion bike. I have two options I'm deciding on; Talon 3, or Yukon 2(Fat Bike)
- Need to know Bottom Bracket size for both models,
- Will the Yukon 2 bike option work with the BBSHD?
- Any build info you have from experience on BBSHD on Giant MTB's

Much thanks..Giant doesn't supply Bottom Bracket specs.
- My Bike shop said the Talon 3 size is 73mm. But need to know from you guys if thats true as they dont build electric bikes.
- Was told by my builder that Gaint has funky BB size and needs to know if Spacers are required.

Why dont you measure the bb size in the bicycle store where you are buying your bicycle from?

Well, I could. I wanted to know the size BEfore buying.
They don't stock the Talon 3 bike until a couple weeks, as its the new 2020 model. I do not know yet if they are gonna stock the Fat Tire " Yukon " model tho...

I'm the type of person who likes info on demand, I mean, at my fingertips. So I joined the forum.

Any other suggestions are still welcome.

Look at your specs the Yukon 2 uses a PF121 BB.
You're better off looking at bikes that have standard bottom brackets and following others lead into builds that work best with a BBSHD.
Thanks Justin_le we're here thanks to you. All the best to the mods for their tireless work keeping it on an even keel.
