Re: MID drive and Gates Carbon Drive

I've been trying to research this as well though I'm a complete beginner so currently struggling. I found the Gates Integration Ebike manual though they use Bafang Max. Please let me know if it's possible to integrate the BBSHD. Also, what is a CDX mounting surface A? http://www.gatescarbondrive.com/~/media/cds/documents/oemfactoryresources/gates-cd-ebike-compatibility.pdf?la=en

Re: Frame for Gates Carbon Belt Drive and seat post battery?

FWIW, it's not terribly hard to weld steel stuff up with a decent relatively cheap wirefeed welder, like the $200-300 one HarborFreight sells. I've even used their crappy <$100 units for a lot of stuff, though they are harder to work with as they don't have any settings other than wire feed speed. Y...

Re: Frame for Gates Carbon Belt Drive and seat post battery?

Cuffing instead of welding to the existing frame? Similar thoughts have crossed my mind, but I'm really hoping it is possible to find a factory frame that is half eZee Forza, half Soma Wolvarine. Marin Fairfax SC6 DLX meets Yuba Boda Boda. I'm not in immediate need to solve this problem (the chain w...

Re: Frame for Gates Carbon Belt Drive and seat post battery?

So replace the aluminum dropout on that side with a steel one, with tubes attached to it that fit over your stays. The chainstay-side can be a single tube with a split in it that allows it to clamp down on the existing tube. The seatstay-side can be a two piece tube, inboard half welded to the dropo...

Re: Frame for Gates Carbon Belt Drive and seat post battery?

Sure and modifying an existing frame means I could install sliding dropouts to tension the belt at the same time. I think about having that done to my Forza, but I don't think I could find a reputable frame builder who would modify an aluminum frame. The tempering characteristics of aluminum seem to...

A good machinist/welder can fabricate a and install a 'frame break' in the left hand seat stay but it may be more expensive than practical.

Re: MID drive and Gates Carbon Drive

You need a special frame that has a removable piece to get the belt on. That rules it out for most amateur builders. Full suspension frames sometimes have removable members in the rear triangle, so that could work if you replaced the shock with a fixed strut to prevent any movement.
