    Yes it is in stock. Typically bikes do ship within roughly a week of the order. It is not on preorder.

    They finished flashing the firmware today.

    Is this bike actually in stock and would ship within the week or if I pay for it now would it be more of a pre order and arrive in June or July?

    I've got both a mid and a geared rear hub

    One bike is a 750/1000W bafang geared hub (planetary reduction) and the other a BBSHD (bafang 1000/1500W mid)

    Different animals for sure

    A quote from Luna Support in the Eclipse ebike question section regarding the hub:

    This video shows how a geared hub works https://youtu.be/pH-52IgJui8 Basically electric motors are most efficient at high RPM so these gears dial that down so it outputs a more usable RPM. This results in a good amount of torque and efficiency. Compared to other ebike motors like direct drive and mid drive, geared hubs are in the middle in terms of balancing complexity with efficiency.

    The bafang geared hubs are typically fixed ratio planetary gearsets

    Exciting bike (for a hub motor), yet wondering about 'geared hub' designation. Might there be variations in production model that preclude saying how many speeds or what kind of gears are involved?

    This is the bike I think I've been looking for all this time. Does anyone know if Luna Cycles allows test rides at their HQ?

    This is the kind of tire you would use for MTB

    Yes you could use it as a mountain bike. The rims are 20" but because the tires are fat the overall tire diameter is around 26", which would be doable on trails, and you got full suspension on top of that plush ride from having fat tires. Ideally would want to swap out the street tires for knobbies if doing singletrack though.

    I have been strongly considering this as an addition to my own personal bikes for this same purpose. Would be so much easier to toss one of these in a car and head to various far away forests rather than messing around with a trailer or bike rack like I would have to do with full size bikes.
