My 2020 Talon 2 has Rockshox, Alivio, hydraulic disc brakes I got slightly used last spring for $600! I want to keep the 36t for maximum hill climbing. This is not intended to be a commuter. If top speed is 25-28 that's fine. Hopefully the 2x9 with 11x36 cassette 22/36 crank creates a better gear ratio with BBS02 build you have in the YouTube video last October on a Giant Talon.
I want to buy my kit through you, but I didn't see how to choose the 36T chain ring size. BBS02, 52V Super Shark battery, gear and brake sensors, and the smaller tool set will be my likely purchase.
Good Donor? I do have cables going into the frame that could get pinched by the motor right? Fix with rubber chunk on the frame between the cables? Chain line less affected with stock size 36T? The chain stay leaves little room for a larger upgrade chainring (42T maybe?) unless the motor pushes it away from the frame to create clearance? Great videos! I hope to see a Talon 2 build soon!
