Re: I will never buy from Luna Cycle again, if I don't have to

I haven't had anything but positive experiences with Luna, multiple orders over several years. Your post reads like a hit piece, especially given that it's the first post for that user name.

Re: Why not comfort bikes?

I'm all for comfort. Schwalbe Fat Franks at lower pressure for a smooth ride, BMX bars for a very upright position, and a cruiser frame with the pedals slightly forward. I think it's comfortable and cool looking. IMG_2612-2.jpg I want to be as comfortable as possible as the quietly humming BBS02 mak...

Re: Dyno Moto 7 CL find

My daughter and I went to our nearby community college yesterday with her Electra 7 cruiser and the new Dyno. Spent a couple hours just riding all the paths around campus and enjoying the scenery. Did a little over 5 miles mostly in pedal assist 1. I LOVE this bike. Everything about it encourages yo...

Re: Luna 52v Wolf Batterty / Hobby king turnigy review.

Looking forward to more info on this. I switched to HK Multistars about 2 years ago and have had great luck with them. The saggy 14S pack that came with my kit from High Power Cycles sucked before AND after being sent in for repairs. I haven't tried a Luna Cycles pack, but am considering it.

Re: Dyno Moto 7 CL find

My LBS put on new cables and housings to fit the higher BMX bars. I didn't put on the throttle becaus...

Re: Dyno Moto 7 CL find

IMG_2598.jpg Then scooped up a BBS02 from Luna with the small 500 display. Also a BMX handlebar for style and comfort. Ordered a small Ibera bag to put the 52V Multistar...

Re: Hall/Phase wiring tester????

Thanks for the replies guys. Pretty sure I either blew a hall sensor or a mosfet while trying the different combos. I'll buy one of the testers and move forward more carefully. I guess I got in too much of a hurry trying to get it going. The idea of 7kW to the back wheel got me a little excited....

I tried that and got nothing. Now it won't do anything and I'm afraid I fried a hall sensor or a mosfet.

I'm working on hooking up a new Infineon clone 18 FET controller to a CL HS3580 motor. I am not having ANY luck trying the different wire combinations. All I get is juddering, reverse or nothing. Please tell me there is a tester tool designed specifically for figuring this out. Starting to get reall...

I've been looking for that just right next bike for quite a while now. You all know the drill, saved searches on the CL app, checking the LBS selection, etc. The other day I'm browsing CL and see a post with 2 pics of some old dirty cruiser. The guy wants $75 for what he described as a "Mountian Bik...

Re: My econo-e-bike

You should absolutely go for more battery, it is so fun! Rolling on the throttle with 72V+ is a total rush. Hot off the charger at 83V, my bike is more like a electric dirt bike, spins the back tire on gravel and goes blowing up hills like they're not even there. The only side effect of more battery...

Good Morning EL34. Your proposed bike, motor and battery sound like a very nice combo. You would end up with a fantastic bike that would go damn near anywhere.

Hey Jangles, I think your donor bike looks great. Very classic look. I agree with Apl, add your mid-drive then upgrade things as necessary. Have fun.
