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

Hmm there maybe a reason Luna isnt posting warranty details yet because if you buy the bike from Luna isnt the warranty going to be dealt with by them? do they have to offer the same warranty that the factory do? and if you buy the bike from Luna the factory wont likely deal with the end user for w...

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

In relation to the questions regarding after sales support with warranty i find it strange that Luna Cycle being the exclusive North American dealer would not pass the information on or advertise it! As the Australian and New Zealand dealer I have been given the after-sales and warranty scope and c...

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

I took my mates girlfriend as pillion passenger for a spin today on the Sur-Ron (total weight 150KG). It wasn't pretty sharing the foot-pegs (toes on heels), but nothing broke. My concerns about the sub-frame snapping were placated by her epic tits pressed hard against my back. Top speed and accele...

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

Cool. Figured it would be a usb fob or some such to lift the restriction.

John, did your bike come with the newer motor and controller, which are a quieter and more powerful combo? I believe I read that they are distinguished by having cooling fins.

Wonder where the pricing will land and when they'll be available. If sooner rather than later I might get in line.

Re: Sur-ron Adaptto

Matt, your bike sounds sweet. Rear hub or mid? Yeah, I've seen criticism by a few builders on the boards of the Sur-Ron being too much to mod towards bicycle status (while it already uses many bike parts), whilst they sell bikes/bike components for far more powerful enduro frame builds, these frames...

Re: Sur-ron Adaptto

Hi Dave, Interesting. Really just learning about bikes, making a buying decision on a strong e-bike all the more challenging till I'm up to speed. So the Sur-Ron does accomplish battery regen on braking and coasting downhill, basically by default (a simple reversal of motor = energy generation into ...

Re: Sur-ron Adaptto

I asked Allex what he thought about the Adaptto and he says that there hasn't been much success with mid drives. I think that is because most mid drives freewheel. This is a direct drive setup which differs from most mids. If the motor settings can be set up properly for this motor, it should be a ...

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

The Sur-Ron has a similar shape to the Neematic it seems to me. The interesting setup to my mind would be an LMX style solution, where motor power is fed to a sprocket on one side of the wheel and peddle power to the other (via independent chains obviously). Is there room on the non-sprocketed of yo...

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

Alex, I've still not found someone who has gentled the throttle to keep the speed around 20mph for the duration of a battery life run. Do we yet know the 60v battery's "eco-mode" range with some certainty? I really like how, in the same fashion as the bomber style enduro frames, whatever battery or ...

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

Yeah MacRibs, would only become worth if if the bike could be gotten closer to $2k or so by more direct purchase. Super curious about what Luna has in mind for a peddle package. Hoping it isn't the same as the very poor package Sur-Ron's demonstrated in a video posted in this thread. The tiny cog on...

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

Saw that Luna is looking at offering a higher capacity battery. I see the 60v going for $2,850 on https://world.tmall.com/item/552799556962.htm? , before shipping I take it. Not much difference from Luna's pricing and Tmall's. Wondering if going direct to the factory has saved anyone a considerable ...

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

Yeah, already sent them an email and found nothing on their boards. Suppose it is a holiday :-).

Is it Luna that you guys are ordering from, or is there some advantage or even possibility of ordering directly from factory?

Anyone know what Luna has in mind for a peddle solution to the Sur-Ron? I've seen the factory peddle package and its very unattractive.

Re: Vector Light Commuter Build

Cool thanks.

You feel like the rear swing arm is properly setup for higher power motors? Just looks a little on the weak side, almost as if it slightly mismatches the other section of the frame.
