    Luna frame builds

    I'm building a bike with the Lunacycle frame and I have a full build thread at ES that I update as I can,

    https://endless-sphere.com/forums/vi...hp?f=6&t=75112

    My build uses a custom mid drive by Lightning Rods, here it is today out for the first test ride, lots more to do but it's nice I can start to use it.

    Anyone else building a Luna welcome to post here,

    Very nice build. How do you like the Lightning Rods motor? Is it a difficult install? That looks like a modified luna frame.

      Nice,

      There's only a few frames that I've seen that have room for stuff like drives and batteries behind the seat post tube.

      It's a cool spot that may go underutilized, as the main triangle area is already designed for a big battery box.

      I saw this one too, with a Cyclone motor placed there, even though the motor sprocket looks like it may be problematic.

        It's not a difficult install, this Lightning Rods motor comes fully assembled and you just bolt it to the frame, I'm just test riding around a big lot by my workshop and so far it's very powerful. The Luna frame is not altered at all except that I'm using Rockshox Totem suspension forks instead of the Luna forks.

          It looks like they need to have the idler pulley set up on that, it's in place and ready to be used

            Yeah,

            But it's on the upper side of the chainline.

            That's like trying to push a rope into tubing, I think. I mean, it can be done. I could be mistaken. Maybe nobody has tried it yet.

            The typical, lower wattage Cyclone motors in that same basic location are on the pull side of the chainring, and do have an idler. Click image for larger version

              Wow did you have that front fork from another bike because I have been looking up front forks and I have been getting sticker shock.

                Nice build, how is it working? what power? Is it the smallblock or the big block?
