    Here's a pic of the small frame, slightly different.

    Thanks that was very helpful. I was able to get the seat at the right height.

    I need to get a torque wrench, I'm worried about losing
    a nut or bolt after reading all the comments about that.

    Any reports of problems with the latest batch of X1s?

    This is from the X-1 Knowledge Base tab (https://electricbike.com/forum/forum...nduro-fs-ebike) and might help https://youtu.be/1xpxFNBE-gI

    I got my X-1, so far it's great. Tested with no power while charging.

    Looks like I got a good set of Fingerprints from somebody all over the LUNA logo.
    And they don't come off! I have a permanent set of prints on my bike to remind
    me of all the hard work and dirty fingers that touched my bike.

    I got the small frame size, but I'm having trouble getting the dropper seat adjusted high enough.
    When I pull it up it unlocks and won't lock at all, even when putting it back to the lowest position.

    Do I need a longer cable?
    Should I have gotten a medium frame?

    To whom it may concern.

    I have used my bike (Luna X1 standard) extensively since I received it in late June.

    It is a great bike in general but of course, the devil is in the details.

    When I got the bike it had a bad controller and overheated and was stuck in the lower power assist mode. A long story there but in short Luna replaced the motor and I was off to the races.

    Since then I have put it through its paces. Put it in 1st gear and if you can keep it from looping by keeping your weight on it, it will take you up anything you can keep traction on. It saved my ass on hills that became impossible to continue down on and the only way out was back up.

    The frame has held up very well with its normal plastic creaking noises,

    The rear shock is a bit leaky and does not hold air for more than a few rides. Maybe that is normal after 400 miles?

    I am probably responsible for blowing up the derailleur. A stick got caught in it and turned it into a pretzel.

    The display was dangling off the handlebars the other day and I did not abuse it. The attachment portion was its downfall. It should have had at least twice as much material used to attach it. Click image for larger version

    As far as maintenance goes, they REALLY need to manage expectations with a user manual. even if it is a bunch of links to the component instructions and say read this. Things that I thought were rivets were threaded and loosened on the drive sprocket Click image for larger version

    The crank arms are a little short but better than the longer ones for me. I think if you have long legs its better to keep the original ones. I did feel the long ones were going to do a lot of pedal strikes but never got around to actually riding with them on the trails.

    Tubeless conversion used Gorilla tape and Stan's sealant with some tubeless valves. Worked like a charm and had no small leaks. I do have an air compressor so that helps.

    Truthfully, holding off until you get first hand experience is probably a wise decision. The larger chain ring seemed to be almost a universal upgrade, but most everything else is highly subject to each individual rider. Consider we have the full spectrum of opinions from saying level 1 of 9 PAS on a 750W bike is 'too much' to saying level 5 of 5 or 9 of 9 on a 2kW ludi is 'not enough'.

    The bars do seem pretty wide on paper, but it is also a relatively massive front wheel and suspension. So depending on your personal preference you may want them a little wider than normal to keep overall effort roughly the same as smaller/lighter bikes. Plus you can always cut them down... much harder to widen them!

    Many thanks to the folks giving updates on the latest batch of bikes. While waiting for mine I had bought a 38T but will keep as a spare, no sweat. I do have some carbon bars inbound as 800mm is too wide for me. I wanted to order a wheelset and a couple other items but given the varying performance people are seeing between PAS that works like it should vs. the "too much or not enough" thing, I'm going to hold off. Hoping the bike that arrives here has proper PAS step function of performance between levels.

    Congrats! When did you order your bike? I ordered mine, early July and I've still not heard any word when I'll get my X-1 with Silent Gear and Ludi. The wait is killing me. Can't wait to get riding!

    I'm also waiting for my X-1. Which handlebars did you end up ordering?

    May I ask when about that you ordered your X-1? I've been waiting for mine, as it was supposed to arrive mid-August. I ordered my X-1 at the beginning of July. It's mid-September and I was told that it will be ready when it's ready with no expected date. Hard to imagine after spending over $4500 and told to just wait.
Working...
