Can't tell if there is a "jam" nut to reinforce the nut on the BB; if not, Locktite.

Re: Luna Cycle X-1 Enduro FS (Bafang M600 / Dengfu M09)

Thanks for the information regarding noise. This would be a definite no no in "OC"" where e-MTB's are already frowned on. FYI, I've ridden a multitude of different mid-drives and most/all were about as silent as my BBS02.

Re: Bike + kit : is this a good combo?

FME, a 68 mm BB is far preferable to 73 mm since you can use the "jam" nut to back up the nut on the BB. I had trouble with the "one nut" design loosening even with Locktite. Also, for me, linear brakes are adequate.

Re: Fast Ebike for a tough commute

I've ridden a Spicy Curry and thought it was a great bike, but limited to 20 mph AFAIK. There are $3,000 - $4,000 bikes from Trek, Specialized and others that are capable of 28 mph, and a $5,000 Stromer that easily rode at 30 mph. Any faster it's Luna, M1 Sportechnik, HPC or DIY and you're on a moped.

Re: RadPowerBike RadCity Commuter

Not to derail the topic, but electricbikereport has an infomercial (I say that because they charge to review a product) of a Radrover commuter that sells for $1299 delivered. It has a 750w Bafang geared motor and 48V, 14 ah battery. Seems like a steal at that price.

Re: Am I asking for trouble? BBS02 on carbon road frame

Some individuals have situations where the BBS02 "loosened" in the BB area (if the nut and "jam" nut weren't tight enough). Make sure you check occasionally since it could cause a problem on a carbon frame.

Re: Fast Ebike for a tough commute

If there are good roads in your area and the hills aren't extremely steep, Stromer makes an excellent commuter for about $5,000 (they have a $10,000 model too, but after riding both extensively, the less expensive bike is adequate. It was fairly easy to hold 30 mph on flat roads; probably you'll nee...

Re: RadPowerBike RadCity Commuter

Alan, always enjoy your posts and interested in the joys and travails of this bike. One thing to consider is the "Rad" is Class 1 & 2 legal (AFAICT), and doesn't require license or insurance. Possibly a big advantage in litigious CA.

It's been four years, but the cells (AIR) were 26 "something" ("q" maybe). I purchased it when Luna first started offering batteries and it was very reasonably priced, but I don't know the performance data.

The controller with my rim brake YES is 30 amp and AFAIK, the disc system is 26. I've used a Luna 52V, 10 ah battery for four years and it's still going strong (qualitatively). Charge fully before using, then leave at 20%+ until the next. The battery is also used for a BBS02 off road.

Re: Rear hub or Mid-drive (should I just flip a coin?)

I've had four years of great service from a BBS02 riding it off road, and my wife, who doesn't ride as much, has had the same excellence from hers. Bafang manufactures almost a million motors a year; they must be doing something correctly.
