    yeah, exact same frame. so ill have to return and get the 100mm bbshd.

      If you use the 100 with 6 or 6.5mm of spacers. You will get a good chainline with the stock ring. About 2mm of clearance to the chainstay. Your left pedal will be 20mm offset from the right. I am looking at buzz bars.

        so your saying that the offset on the left would help align (center) the pedals?

        It would if you could find a way to space it and still allow the mounting to bite into the bottom bracket for stability. Otherwise I think either spacing the pedal or offsetting the crank are the only options

      I have a 2018 KHS 4 Season 3000 (medium) and looking to get the BBSHD kit. Is it possible to purchase the Luna Fusion 52V battery packs that you show on your Fusion KHS 3000 bike? I don't see it as an option for it in the battery list. If not, which 52v battery pack would you suggest for this bike frame? Thanks.

        Sorry we are not currently selling those separately..I would go with the Wolf pack, if it doesn't fit you can always mount it on underside of downtube.

      Hi,

      I have a charging issue with the 52V Luna Advanced 300W charger and a 52V Jumbo shark. For the past year, I have had no issues charging at currents 1 - 5A, though the control for the 80% and 90% limit no longer works -- all charges go to 100%. Typically I'd charge at 2 or 3 A.

      This past weekend, I tried to charge the battery startiing from 50V (~50%). I plugged in the charger to AC, then battery and set to 5A and came back in 1 hour. It charged only 0.5A, based on a current meter, and the voltage on the charger was down to 6V. I had enough charge, so I rode for a half hour, returning with battery voltage approx 47V.

      Here are the current symptoms:
      1) Plug AC charger in -> 58V, fans come on. Appears to work.
      2) Plug charger into battery (battery switched off). Begins to charge for 1-2 seconds, then voltage drops to 6V and fans shut off.
      3) Unplug battery from charger, and the voltage stays low on the charger (6V).

      Any tips on troubleshooting or servicing the charger? I'd like to try repairing before immediately replacing the charger.

      thanks,

      John

        Unfortunately it does not sound repairable from your description. We can discount a replacement if you email us, if that helps.

        Paxtana, thanks for your input. I'll email you directly to request a discounted replacement. -John

      I have a charging issue with a 13.5ah Shark pack battery. Battery pack is 6 mos old. Battery currently has a voltage of 54.6v and works fine on bike when display is turned on, everything is 100%, all good. Just went to plug it into my Luna 52v Advanced charger to top it off and it won't charge. Display still reads ready voltage 59.1 on charger and fan does not spin. Plug same charger into my other battery and it charges fine, fan kicks on and all good. Checked charging port on shark battery and voltage is 54.6v. Changed settings all around from 100,90,80% and 1,2,3,4,5a. What would keep the charger from charging a good battery when it works on a similar one?

        Are you seeing 54.6 from a multimeter? Asking because older dpc14 displays only went up to 54.6 on the readout

      so no way to do it with the standard bbshd BB?

        Hi,

        I was just about to purchase a cyclone in the sale but it's now out of stock. Will you be getting more in? If so when?

        Otherwise I'll go for the mini. I've read its not as reliable as the 3k - is there any truth to that?

        Thanks!

        Chris

          We just got a batch of 3k in, not sure when they will be added back to inventory though. Probably within a week if I had to guess.

          For the mini it depends how you're using it. Any DC motor being lugged will generate heat, the bigger the motor the more it can handle that heat without burning out since there's more thermal mass. But it's a moot point because DC motors should not be lugged in the first place. As long as you have it geared right and downshift on hills there is no reason the mini should be less reliable than the 3k.

        Thanks for the quick reply paxtana.

        I understand your point about lugging the motor, thanks. Could you suggest which type of motor is best for which applications? I'm at a loss as to know which one to pick.

        I like the lightweight and small package that the mini comes in, but presumably one expects the 3k to get up to a higher top speed and have more grunt on hill acceleration? I'm looking to build a quick but light built hardtail mountain bike I can take up the steep dirt hills we have around here. The bike will be light and I weigh only 63kg, so the temptation is to keep it light and go with the mini, but I don't want to buy it and regret not having the extra power. I'll be using a high-C 14s battery backpack.

        What would you recommend?

          Either motor would be more than enough to blow away any of the typical ebikes seen in the EU where typical power level is something like 350w. The mini is 2000w and the 3k is like an order of magnitude more power than the legal limit.

          Granted even a haibike or whatever isn't exactly conforming to the spirit of the law by defining the rating as continuous rather than peak but still, cyclone is not even close to anything legally sold in the UK. 3000W on a mid drive is enough power to pop wheelies in lowest gears no problem, so much power you actually have to be careful. 2000w is a little more reasonable but still has plenty of pep.

          Here in US we have a tendency to take the attitude that it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Maybe that's why the 3k sells way more than the mini. Or maybe it's because our BBS02 is so competitively priced at pretty much same weight / power level that it's very compelling to go with 02, plus the level of integration and aftermarket parts for bbsxx makes it hard to beat.

        I own a brushless motor front hub kit, with a 36 volt dillinger battery and built in controller. The battery is nearing the end of its life span. I am looking to buy a replacement battery and controller. Any recommendations?

        Thanks,

        S

          Right now all of our 36v packs are out of stock. Generally speaking anything that's 36v will be compatible. Your main concerns will be how much space you have to work with and how much you wanna spend.

        Paxtana the display I'm using on the bike is a DPC18 and reads 58v fine it is not limited to 54.6v. Battery had previously charged with same charger a number of times with zero issue.Yes I'm reading Voltage with an RMS Fluke multimeter so its accurate. Why wouldn't the charger recognize the battery as a load and charge? Charger voltage is what shows up on charger display and doesn't change when shark pack is plugged in. Battery works fine on bike when plugged in and operational. Charger works on other batteries.

        Howdy Yall,

        I was doing some research into a new build and was wondering what would be best way to connect bbshd to minicube 30A battery. Should I buy an anderson to 90t connector or just cut off bbshd anderson and place a 90t.

        I would like to avoid soldering if possible but if that is best way I could figure it out.

        Thank you for your time and consideration,

        Jason

          I agree with highvoltage. Also worth pointing out that even for big 10ga wires solder sleeves seem to work very well with nothing more than a lighter to make the connection. We sell a lot of these and get no complaints, I even use them on various freelancing projects since it's so easy and not one issue has come up.

          It's really quite remarkable since if we sell something janky our clientele is not shy about letting us (and everyone else) know about it. We have not seen any negative feedback about solder sleeves at all. https://lunacycle.com/luna-solder-sleeve-variety-pack/

          Thank yall for the feedback, I think im gunna cut the anderson bbshd connection and try out the solder sleeves

        My charger seems to be showing a fully charged battery connected or not though my battery is only partially charged.
        Thanks,

        Did continuity check on adapter all good. Charger is not recognizing shark battery as load so it won't start charge cycle. Like I said charger works on other batteries. and shark pack battery works when plugged into mid drive unit and works fine when turned on with display. But voltage will eventually drop to a point it no longer works and I will need to charge it. Just an FYI I spent my career as an electrical contractor (retired) so troubleshooting an electrical issue isn't new to me. I agree adapter looks to be probable problem but it ohms out fine. Any other ideas?

          Email support@lunacycle.com with your order # and the details we've described here. They'll be able to help you out from here.

        I went to hookup the cyclone controller I bought from you guys a couple of weeks ago, and lo and behold I find two new wires I have never seen on a Cyclone controller before. Both are white and labeled "Auto Matching". Is the Cyclone controller now sensorless?!

          Not as far as I know, but you know how China is, they love to keep people on their toes with their inconsistency.

        HI! Just was curious what would be the best way to connect the three phase wire from the controller to the motor? THank you!
