Re: My Bafang Ultra Mountain Bike! Frey AM1000

Chulen, I’d appreciate it if you could let me know how it went when you get your "Fat Bike Hunter". I had high hopes for Frey especially after 45 pages of good reviews, but not one response to my many emails means it’s not a company to deal with. Cheers, Tom All of China was on holidays until just ...

Re: 2014 Specialized Stumpjumper & Luna Cyclone 3000w

Hey MarkLeeds, Feel free to ask away! On the gearing subject, I dont really use this bike for commuting so I have it geared for for hill climbing, offroard, single track. Initially, i used the stock 44T chainring that comes with the kit, nothing really wrong with it, just wanted to change it to a na...

Re: new cyclone 3000 w mid-drive kit?

Hi Guys, very interested in this motor and am currently sourcing a doner bike. I was thinking of a specialized enduro (similar to stump jumper) but am concerned about the durability of the chainstays if I run the motor at 3000w. I plan to use the bike to to train for enduro races I do on my ktm mot...

Re: Battery back pack ideas

Ive tried both on my full suspension Stumpjumper bike, They each have their pros and cons. I got a 10lb 52v 20AH rectangle pack, It fits in both my backpack and a trunk bag for my rear rack. Its the NCR18650 pack from Luna Cycle. Ive padded it with 1/2" Adhesive backed CC Neoprene and recently a 3D ...

Re: Raptor Q76R Mid Drive Build

Awesome work so far, Gonna be watching this one intently.

Im considering doing something similar, any chance the Cyclone 3000w will fit inside the battery box? or does it have to be below?

Re: difficulty engaging cyclone mode 3

For my cyclone controller it was the pink wire to one of the black ground wires. You might not notice mode 3 if you're just spinning the wheel while in the air. On my controller/motor it takes a couple seconds for the higher speed to engage. It starts the same as mode 2 but after a couple seconds it...

Can you elaborate on this? did you need the freewheel removal tool to remove the freewheel from the crank? I didnt order one, but perhaps I should have, not sure which one though.

Re: Dented 18650 in Luna Cycle battery pack

Can I solder in the new batteries instead of spot welding them in? I cant find anyone local with the proper spot welder and want to get going asap.

I was thinking of just soldering the nickel strips directly to the battery.
