    I believe it does and is incorporated into the chainring sandwich - and, there's a higher quality "Lunatick" upgrade available - https://lunacycle.com/luna-tick-cran...or-mid-drives/

    I've got no personal experience with cyclones but I'm pretty sure they do... there are plenty of cyclone guys around here that can confirm or dispel...

    There is a overrunning clutch between the pedals and the crank and there is another one between the motor and the crank - the pedal is a pawl style and the motor one is a roller style

    Basic Question on Mid-drives

    To date I have only built bikes with hub motors. I have a basic question about the Bafang mid drive. Does the chainring and crank spin all the time the motor is engaged or is there a one way clutch? It seems dangerous to me that the motor would drive the crank arms and pedals all the time? I guess if you only use pedal assist it is not an issue but I want an independent throttle.
    Thanks
