Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

I worked with over 100 companies on an annual basis.
I can tell you from where i sit, Luna cycles is run like an amatuer shit show.

I own a sur ron purchased in europe through a European distributor, they were great.

I would much rather buy a segway in the USA, vs a Luna cycles surron.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

i dont understand why surron themselves dont offer higher quality batteries at the very least. Would be easy for them.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

why cant luna just get that hotrod battery kit upgrade thing going? and make a real ready to go bike, with proper forks, proper shock, proper wheels. proper tires, etc etc, seems like such a lost opportunity. probably better that segway is getting involved, luna just doesnt inspire confidence. have ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

i rode the KTM freeride (in italy) I liked it, a lot. Its not quite a full size bike, but a lot bigger and a lot more sturdy than the surron light bee. but the bike with 2 batteries is like $15 000 if I remember. irony is that the surron light bee when driven on technical trails with the X controlle...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Just had a thought. Wonder if I am going to run into trouble trying to green sticker register it for ohv here in California. Since they won't know anything about the bike and it will have no Vin.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

i didn't, i made a deal, asked them to give me a better price with a 2nd battery included.

they dont know how many kwh the batteries will be, and they dont know what forks / suspension will be installed

talk about ordering in the dark lol

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

i asked what fork it is (I have seen 3 different forks mentioned so far), and I just asked if its a 4.6kwh battery or a 7 kwh battery. I suspect its the former. also how is storm bee claiming 520nm torque? the alta has 50nm torque if i remember at 35kw so somehow it has 10 times the torque of an alta?

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

btw I already own one sur ron, to get a sur ron up to spec for real abuse and a 2nd battery is more than $8000

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Boom Bee - does that price include the 10% discount? or do we get 10% on top of that price? the surron ron is so pricey to make trail worthy, the stock bike cannot handle abuse. By the time all those upgrades are in the boom bee will actually be cheaper - assuming it also doesnt have junky parts (su...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

any sur ron owners in southern california area? if so, which are the good areas to ride these bikes? I mostly like technical singletrack, but flowy singletrack is ok too. not into steep hill climbs or sandy flats.

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

i think you making a mistake. the sur ron is almost too light for some obstacles, it has barely enough weight to plough throw stuff, it gets defelcted way more easily than a full moto bike. once you make it weigh less, especally in the wheels, it is going to deflect off everything, plough through no...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

any of you get the feeling that the storm bee might be more capable for sand, hill climbs, and open areas, or mx tracks. but in technical singletrack? I have not ridden anything nearly as fun as the sur ron light bee in singletrack, its about as fun as my DH mountain bike was for that on the down, a...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

do you guys reckon storm bee will have rim locks? lol I am riding around with my light bee at 25 PSI front and rear - and no valve stem tears in 5 rides now. was previously running around 19-20 PSI when I kept getting valve stem tears. I weigh 200 lbs. definitely less traction the steep hills at 25 ...

Re: Sur-Ron - New Mid drive Bike

Ok I ordered all the parts for tubeless except maybe for the strap. I'm a bit confused what the strap is for anyways? I ordered a strap but not sure if it will work like one suggested Part that confuses me the most is how am I going to get air in the tire fast enough to make it seal? Without a tube?...
