Does this have the Shimano hollow tech bottom bracket? I was thinking of doing the same to my Boardman but I can't find any information about whether it's possible
That's not possible with a normal crank motor conversion, as the crank is part of the motor.

Thanks for the reply, Apologies but I don't really understand, I have a 2021 Boardman mht 8.6, would I be able to convert it?
That's got some problems to overcome. The small chainwheel is just too small for an electric bike, and it doesn't have much room for increasing it. Once tou've solved that, you're on your way. A crank might might fit as long as your bike doesn't have one of those swelled up BB tubes. You'll have to check the drawings to see if you have clearance for the final drive unit.
