      I use a BMS which is rated for far more Amps than I would ever draw. The most current that I ever draw is 40A, so I use a 100A BMS. The BMS has an easy life!

      By the way, you need to match the voltages of your battery & BMS, but you probably already knew that. And make sure to connect the BMS properly!

        Will it work to tap into the brown P+ wire and the black ground to power a 12-80v headlight from the bbshd wiring harness?

          No that is a bad idea.

        Hi,

        I have the same fatbike as in this article: https://www.electricbike.com/how-to-...-from-germany/
        It is 120mm pf41.

        Is this adapter with locking ridges ? : https://lunacycle.com/pf41-bb-adapto...mm-120mm-73mm/

        Do I need this adapter in addition to the 120mm above ? : https://lunacycle.com/bbsxx-locking-...92-86-5mm-bbs/

        In the article is seems like the 120mm adapter is with locking ridges because he is using the triangle ring with ridges.

        Best Regards,

          Hello, I was hoping that you could provide more technical info on the Monster Cyclone XL 7500

          I.E. Motor dimentions. I was hoping to mount this in my Felt Deep six Bike . In the same way that you mount it in your Rino Bike.
          I need to know if i have enough space behind the seat post?
          Thanks

            Anyone know where on the spokes the speedo magnet should be placed to accurately read your speed? Distance from center on a 27.5 wheel....

            Thanks!

              I don't think it matters. If you place it to close to the rim the wheel may be harder to remove. I always place mine with wheel removal in mind.

              It doesn't matter. An RPM is the same at every distance from the hub.

              Agreed, one RPM is one RPM any where on the wheel. Only thing I can think of is further out will have more centrifugal forces on it. Closer to the hub may really be better? ( the kid on the outside of the merry-go-round always flys off first! ) LOL

            Does anyone have the controller settings that Lunacycle uses for their "hot-rod" programming? I ordered a BBSHD and asked it to be "hot-rodded". I love it, but wanted to tweek it a little, so ordered a programming cable. I THOUGHT I saved the profile before I messed with it, but am not sure now. ANYONE have a .el file from Lunacycle? or maybe a screenshot of the programming tabs? LUNACYCLE? can you post the .el "hotrod" file here? Thank you

            I had the cradle and battery meltdown a few weeks ago from too much space between the contacts casuing excessive heat. I wanted to thank Ashley and all the Luna crew who helped me get back on my awesome Police Bike. They sent me a new battery and a new cradle. Thanks so very much.

              Hello,

              I'm currently riding a BBSHD kit with a 52V 13.5Ah battery that I installed on a Motobecane Boris X7. I love it! I commute 40 miles to work and back as many days a week as I can using a Luna 42 tooth bling ring and 11-36 cassette, KMC e-bike chain. So far, it has been perfectly reliable, although I did snap half of my derailleur off on one of the first rides that I was being hard on it.

              I am currently charging at my house, bringing my charger with me to work to charge, then carrying the charger back home with me. Only time will tell how soon it will be for me to take a good fall and destroy my charger in some way....

              Anyways, my question is in regards to batteries. I will be riding through a Minnesota winter, and have done some research on temperatures and battery capacities, and I think I understand where I could upgrade to a larger battery to get me my 40 miles without the necessity of carrying my charger. I'd like some professional advice as to whether I should wait for the 52V 20Ah battery to be available, or if the 48V 17.5Ah battery is the better choice for my immediate needs. If it helps, I would prefer reliability over speed. The most capacity possible within the constraints of water bottle bosses for installation is what I'm looking for.

              You guys rock! Keep it coming.
              Dan

                52v 20ah Battery? Are you referring to a soft Triangle Pack? I don't think we'll be seeing any 52v 20ah Bottle Batteries for awhile until something beats the GA cell in capacity, excluding the NCR20700B cell.

                Might be better to go with the 48v 17.5ah, especially if top speed is not a concern.

              Hi,

              I have Magic Pie V5. I have the data cable and know how to connect it. May I ask what are the "settings" to make it go faster? I am running a Lna Shark 48v 11amps with it. It does about 25mph right now and I know. I am planning to use it for an off road build thus can distance for speed. Thank you!

              Trying to troubleshoot a battery problem. Would like to know what the voltage levels should be for a fully charged 52v Shark battery 13.5ah at:
              • the connector coming out of the battery holster
              • the different prongs on the bottom of the battery

              The charger is putting out 52+ volts, it goes through its cycle, but when I put the battery on the bike, nothing. No display, no juice. I've checked the connections, reseated the battery several times, picked the bike up and let it drop to seat the battery... looking for ideas.

                Top charge for 52V battery pack is over 58V.

                52v is undercharged.

              What parts should I make sure my LBS has in stock in order to build this hub motor (https://lunacycle.com/BAFANG-750w-ge...r-front-wheel/) into the front wheel on my existing bike? (Maybe that is a nonsense question, and I'll need a brand new rim?)

              In the second case, what parts should they have to build me a wheel? It seems like the spoke length may be a non-standard, since the hub is differently-sized than normal?

              The donor bike is a Mongoose Dolomite (the cheap-o walmart 7-speed fat tire bike), which has a 26x4" rim.

              I'm either going to have the shop build me a wheel, or I'm going to get the parts and head over to our local bike coop to build it myself. Still, I want to avoid additional wait times for shipping, having to special order parts.

              (I'm building the bike for burning man, and we're leaving two weeks from today. I put this off until now because I was saving up for the parts! Really hoping to get it finished before we have to leave!)


              Edit:

              I DID need some special parts at the bike shop, but luckily was able to source them (From Archer Bikes in Mesa, AZ) locally. This is a VERY ODD part to have unless the shop specializes in ebikes. The shop I got these at was very shocked that they had them in stock.

              Spokes:

              18x 12ga 270mm spokes
              18x 12ga 264mm spokes

              Not saying this will be the same for you, but this is what I needed! Ended up being about $80 worth of spokes :-X

                Did you notice for $110.00 Luna will lace the hub onto a DT Swiss 4" rim? Seems like a good deal and you'd save the hassle of having your LBS spec the spoke size.

                  Two week lead time, though, otherwise would have 100% done that.

                A 26" X 4" 36 hole rim, rim strip, quality brass nipples and quality straight gauge custom length spokes. Marcus Moore of Yojimbo's Garage in Chicago is a great source for custom length spokes.

                Your bike shop will determine whether or not you need 13 or 14 gauge spokes depending on the size of the holes in the hub motor. If you use 13 gauge spokes, you won't have to drill out your rim holes if you use 4mm reducer nipples. One should only drill out rim holes for using 12, 11, 10, etc. gauge spokes.

                I have had wheel builders calculate spoke length for me right off the bat, but I had one builder ask me to calculate it. In that case, I asked if he would kindly do the calculation himself and he did, successfully. A builder usually charges for the service of spoke length calculation.

                Best of luck in meeting your deadline!

                  You want spokes threaded on a big, stout Phil Wood machine, not on a small Cyclo or Hozan spoke threading machine. The Cyclo and Hozan machines do a poor job in my experience because the threads aren't deep enough. I have always wondered if there are bike shops out there who will cut and thread spokes on site with a Cyclo or Hozan.

                  @commuter -- been looking at those phil wood machines. As an amatuer machinist/metalworking, that thing is straight up pornographic!

                  The Phil Wood machine is the dream tool that I will never have. $4,000 is way too much. I bought a Cyclo and I wouldn't even use it for an emergency spare.

                hello!
                I would like to order the Cyclone Mid Drive 3000 watt Planetary Ebike KIT to Sweden...is that possible ?
                Thanx
