Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Alright I'm here to voice my opinions before joining the cyclone cult with my FUTR beta. I will first fix my bmc v4 and it's little hall sensor issue and sell it off for a tiny fraction of what I paid for it and trade that cash in for a cyclone mid drive. I've got quite a few questions though. They...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike from China

More of a compliance thing than anything functional. I actually already got busted on my bike from a *itch *ss cop who had nothing bette...

Re: Specialized SX Trail With Cyclone

Do you no longer need the chain tensioner? Don’t think it’s under the cover. I think it’s been eliminated and you tighten the chain by moving the motor and mount up the down tube, good idea. Is that a motor bash guard in the cad render? It’s not in the bike photos. Edit I do see it’s fixed to the bo...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Are you referring to the bent bracket? That's actually from Cyclone. Luna Cycle has been working on a CNC/laser cut bracket for some time now. Not sure when they will actually start selling it. They mentioned it in the Fast Electric Bike group on Facebook in July 2017. https://www.youtube.com/watch...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

There is an updated cyclone mount designed and sold by Luna cycle. They don’t show it mounted on a bike or motor so it’s hard to tell how it works. Guess it doesn’t matter. They should have taken the design a little further and make it pivot or slide to tighten the chain so the tensioner would not b...

Re: How good is Cyclone 4kw coaxial suspension bike?

Does it use the same controller as the regular cyclone 3000w? I know you can get the regular 40amp or an upgraded one at 60 amps for the cyclone 3000w. Getting the same watts at 50 volts seems appealing over 75 volts. Means 2 batts not three. Or 4 not 6 batterie also for 2x capacity. Sounds nice if ...

Re: Domino throttle

I had this same problem. I put a 100ohm trim pot ( adjustable potentiometer) to lower the input voltage a little to keep it from cutting out the controller at full throttle. I’ll look for them I bought 10. They are so cheap so I bought 10.

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Progrock

On a second look. To me it looks like the angle bends are over bent to me if that’s a term. Or the extra length the bends take up was not calculated correctly. It must work if it’s sold with the kit you would think. Might need some strategic hammer blows or vise work to correct the angles.

Perfection would only come from an automated process which was probably not used to keep costs down, understa...
