      Quite a few were shipped on Friday, including many of the first orders. Local pickup notifications are special and can add a bit to lead time, but not by much. Likely you will get the notification sometime this week.

      Honestly if it's a firmware update I would rather let them work that out before shipping since I would imagine it wouldn't be very easy to do on our end to update

    Random question but I am not super familiar with the motor and belt system. I am hoping to at least get some degree of exercise while biking and was wondering if the large motor and single gear basically negate the need to pedal? I've been searching for a folding bike and this thing just seems so rad that I really want one but can't really find a lot of info on it because it's so new.

      Looking at the way it is geared I imagine you would be fine for pedaling along much of the time, especially if you put it in a lower PAS setting.

    I noticed the Eclipse does not come with a rear rack. Do you think this one would fit the bike or are their any suggestions for mounting racks / carriers on this bike? Bike Luggage Rack Rear Adjustable Bicycle Touring Carrier https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0924GJ4PG...ing=UTF8&psc=1

      This bike is full suspension, it wants to flex between the rear wheel and the seatpost. If you put a rack like that on it which mounts onto both those parts you would be putting a large amount of stress on the rack and you would lose all rear suspension.

      More ideal would be a rack that solely mounts onto the seatpost, like this https://www.bikebling.com/Blackburn-...6-7044592.htm?

      There are probably some models out there that reinforce to the seat tube as well if you need something with a bit more carrying capacity.

    Neat looking cruiser. Is this hub motor/gearing setup capable of tackling steep grades? Is the battery removable?

      It is geared so should be pretty good with hills. Though if you are talking about extreme grades you may want to consider one of our mid drive bikes. Yes, the battery is removable.

    finally got mine, torquey little bike! also fits inside the trunk of my car (compact sedan), with the handle bars removed. perfect bike for someone not too hardcore with ebikes and doesnt want to put a rack on their car.

      Would you make a video of the ride or say more about the performance? How is the suspension?

    #21
    I do like the minimalistic style of that.

      Can the battery be upgraded to higher voltage?
      also will the firmware of the controller be manually upgraded?

        I can not speak to future policy decisions or whether there will be later updates but it is technically possible to update the firmware. This video shows it https://youtu.be/7oYHpgMwC-E

        That is not to say the cable used in the video or the software or the firmware files are necessarily available or something that will be offered. But it is possible to update the firmware on it.

      speaking of programming, can the top speed to this bike be increased somehow?

        I'm think a 52v battery swap if you want to keep it internal in the frame. 60v or 72v don't come in that size so you'd need custom and might burn out the motor depending on controller

      Is it 1000 peak or nominal?

        Listing says 21A continuous, 48v x 21a = 1008 W

      #26
      The amp rating on the controller?

      Comment


        #27
        Would 52v need a new controller or display?

        Comment


          #28
          so it’s 1008w, my rear motor hub is stamped 500w, did i get the wrong hub motor?

            Hubmotor ratings don't mean anything, it's just an arbitrary number set by a factory to attempt to comply with whatever local regulation they are trying to skirt. Just like how BBSHD is stamped 750W but at 58.8 pulling 30A that is 1764W.

          racked up about 70 miles on my eclipse already, lots of urban riding with no pedaling and all throttle. installed some cheap cst knobby tires and took it offroad, again with no peddling the bike did ok going up the hills. when it got steep it would slow to a crawl but still kept going. for the downhill riding, which is what i wanted it for, i was pretty happy with it. i just need to play with tire pressures and shock settings to get it dialed in. overall happy with the bike and im so ready to start modding it.

            I bumped my tires to 25 but this is my first fat tire bike so anything less seemed too soft. How do you plan to tune the shocks?
