Is the problem the rear bracket if so space with washers, if its the bb spacers are the answer
The kit is a basic one size fits all
Most frames require spacers or the hammer what model Carrera is it and how wide is the bb
Wow. Nealh I thought you were having a laugh with the hammer remark.Give the chain stay a whack with a hammer to get the clearance or get another bike to fit the kit to.
The main ring nut on the other side just fits on as you can see in pic 4. So if I can find some washer to fit on the crank side of the BB that just keeps the gear housing touching the chain stay but taking the pressure off that should suffice. Quick search brings these upAt 73mmyou are at the max the standard brackets will fit
Often have to make custom spacers and brackets even have a 33mm hole saw, and offcuts of ali and stainless steel make a template with cardboard then make in metal
Motor resonance /vibration via the frame, also can you 100% be sure the housing is fully tight against the BB shell when the lock nut is tightened ?Can anybody please clarify why it is so bad for the motor housing to be in contact with the chainstay? On my Bizango 29er it seems to nestle really comfortably into it.
Well I managed to find a bit of plastic in the shed and made a washer out of it. Just the right size to stop fouling the chain stay.
I would of liked maybe an extra millimetre for the clamping nut but it's on and holding.
Could go with a bit better cable management but it's give me a chance to test ride.
Battery fits perfect thanks for the recommendation Nealh. First impressions is great up the hills but gutting how hard it is to pedal past the motors cut off point. Definitely would like more speed but hey, thanks UK for the naff laws.

10/10 for ingenuity, but what happens when you need to heat up some soup!I had same problem on a bizango and made washer out of old aluminium saucepan.
