Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

If you're in the US I believe FLX has them in stock.
More than buying from China but might be less hassle.

Re: Bafang M500/M600 thread

A bit surprised at this m600 review. Wonder why the motor is so loud? Luna claims the motor is silent and I have not seen many complaints about this being a loud motor.

Re: Wayne’s Dengfu Carbon Fibre FS 27.5” with Bafang M600 (throttle also)

With throttle and 650WH battery the FLX trail is 2,654 shipped. The X-1 pre-order was $3,650 shipped. Even if Luna hikes the price another $500 the upgrade in frame, suspension, components, etc. is worth investing the extra money IMO. FWIW, latest from Luna is X-1 pre-orders won't ship until Septemb...

Re: Dengfu M09 Endruo/Freeride build log

I wonder how Luna stuffed a 27.5x2.8 in there, that’s more or less a 29x2.25? Did Dengfu provide you the battery cover? Wayne did a build with 27.5x2.8 and seems they fit (albeit without a lot of clearance): https://endless-sphere.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=28&t=96461&p=1475776#p1475776 19.5" Large...

Good to hear Wayne. It's a shame Luna won't offer throttle with the ludi controller. Obviously you find throttle useful in some scenarios. Would you have any concerns with the 12-speed cassette that Luna is pairing with this bike?

Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Luna released their full suspension X-1 with a 2000 watt Bafang M600 a few days ago. Very affordable. That bike is beyond ridiculous. Firstly, no evidence the M600 can handle 2kW for any length of time. Secondly, even if the motor survives, they frocking equipped the bike with an NX Eagle 12-speed ...

That said I did ask Luna whether it was possible add throttle with the ludicrous controller and only enable when changed to street ...

I noticed the price increase too. They are also offering an additional battery now. In the original description there was reference to a price of $3300, but when I bought it was $3450, and now it's $3550 for the standard configuration. I'm thinking they may just be increasing price as they get close...

Just ordered mine. Decided to go with the throttle version with 17.5" frame.

The only thing I'm not thrilled about is the huge LUNA lette...

Not sure if it's the same frame but loks a lot like Volton's A-Trail.

Congrats and great to see an update! Too bad the throttle needs some work (you would think bafang's engineers might be enthusiasts themselves and get it right) but it's a really nice looking bike. What's the total weight with battery?

That's fine. I really just wasn't sure why the icons disappeared. Having run a forum for almost 20 years I would say a surprising number of people don't even know how to use the unread icons.

Yes, it's harder to differentiate unread threads without the icons. It's standard protocol in almost every forum software. The funny thing is you didn't remove them in the mobile view. At least not mine.

I contacted enwe to get clarification on the specs and ask for a shipping quote for 1 bike. They replied "We don't do retail,We are manufacturer. Sorry friend". Sounds like a higher MOQ than 1.
