    When do you expect the matte black to be back in stock?

    It’s multi question time kids!

    Pax how is this selling? It’s a unique value feature set proposition. I like mine and am lucky to have a local shop that will wrench it if needed. Most on line bikes are scary if you read the ebike forum. So much junk being shipped.

    Why does Luna continue to show a huge number of cool bikes that are no longer available? On the sales page it’s like the cool bike grave yard.

    Do you see any possibility to program the PAS power levels like other Luna bikes? Level 1 is worse than 0 and just drags. 2 is ok. 3 is ok but lots of spinning at road speed. 4 is great for serious climbs. 5 probably good for climbing but in Florida we don’t have that.

    Is anyone else interested in a belt drive, powerful, big battery bike like the fixie? Maybe a gravel bike but with a IGH hub.

      My team is not typically authorized to discuss unreleased information like sales numbers but I can tell you it is selling well.

      A lot of sold out listings are moved to the pending section which basically means they are archived. Deleting listings lowers our search result rankings so we archive them instead. Bikes not pending may be restocked at some point

      While not programmable like BBSHD it is flashable from what I understand.

    Has anyone used a multi meter on this battery? A video of doing it would be great. I would like to compare the on bicycle display to a multimeter and to be able to use a multimeter for long-term storage if necessary

      Anyone changed the gear ratio on their eclipse? The power is great, but I can still bike faster on my geared gravel bike... I want to be able to go faster than 13 mph without ghost pedaling or pure throttle.

        It's counter-intuitive, but I probably could just throw on a chain with higher geared sprockets for now to save some money. Right?

        I still think prior to reworking the entire drivetrain it makes a lot of sense to try shorter cranks. You will be able to maintain a higher cadence at faster speeds. If you want to put a chain on it I am sure that is possible though, might need some help from your LBS though

        Yes I felt the same. It might be a problem if you lock in a faster ratio, you'll be using the same effort but going faster. Maybe that's good, I don't know.

      Pax… would changing the wheel,size change how the PAS,responds? I know it,would mess up the speedometer and odometer ( which are off by 15% now)

        I don't think so, but I could be wrong. Might be worth a shot if you wanted to give it a try

      Does anyone have a mileage report? Almost 500 here

        350km over here. Because it fits in my daily driver, I'm using this bike more than my other ones now.

      Hello everyone!
      Just joined the Eclipse team a couple weeks ago. Just wanted to say thank you to everyone for all the great questions, and then to all with great answers or insight. All of you really helped me decide on picking this bike up. Like others have stated, the PAS levels definitely need some work, more options via the display, and possibly having the ability to derestrict the top speed should be an option...I understand the legal/warranty aspects with that though. Overall I love the Eclipse and again, thanks to everyone for all the great information!

        So I got the folding stem mentioned on this thread, but the bike still won't fit in my tiny Tesla M3 trunk... (it's the trunk's fault for being so ridiculously small)

        I ordered this: https://www.davidbrandnew.com/store/...stem-pre-order

        Because the bike with the handlebars attached just won't fit in my car. Will post an update once I receive it and give it a try.

          posted that stem on the other forum it looks pretty promising. also wanted to give it a shot because i have a 3 too. currently using the thinstem and yes it still wont fit with the bmx bars, so i sweapped to mtb bars and was able to fit in my 3. my only concern with that turtle neck is the height it hads to the stem, it looks kinda funky. let us know how it goes!

          i've used the turtleneck for a few weeks - it's solid and works great. ya, it adds some height to the stem, but i actually prefer the handlebars at the height they're at now. makes pulling it in and out of the 3's trunk take a few seconds now. so much better!

        Hello fellow eclipse riders!

        I have had my Luna Eclipse for about 6 weeks now and I just hit 310 miles yesterday. I absolutely love this bike! It did not come with any type of owners manual though, and, admittedly, this was a little disappointing. In the time I have owned this I have however learned a lot about this bike, which brings up some questions, and gives me a few things to share. I am an experienced bicycle/ motorcycle/ ATV/ snowmobile rider and I wrench on my own stuff for the most part, but this is my first e-bike. So, I think some bullet points are in order!

        - I have read a lot of different comments in regards to the pedal assist- I personally like the way it is set up. If you try riding the bike in PAS4 or PAS5 in and out of traffic, or on a BMX track, where your speed is varying a lot, between slow corners and fast acceleration, you will feel how your pedaling and the electric boost pull you right out of the hole fast!! The first time I rode the bike aggressively it all made sense to me!

        - The stock saddle is horrible, but I am sure it was done to save costs and allow the owner to find a saddle that suits them well, I put on a Cloud 9, which made a huge difference!

        - I relocated my display to the lower bar, centered over the stem- it looks much better IMO, and made it easier to clean up the wire mess on the bars. I added a bar pad on top to conceal some of the wires- I will post some pics for you guys when I get a chance.

        - The folding pedals are "ok", but felt small. I added a set of Odyssey "twisted" model BMX pedals, it feels nice having a larger surface area for your feet.

        - I added a bar end mirror on the left. I modified a "Mirrycle" brand mirror and was able to find a long screw with the correct threads to thread into the factory bar insert. If you remove the allen screw in the bar end the grip will come right off. You will see a permanent insert inside the bar. The next time I take it apart I will post some pics as well.

        - I noticed when I got the bike it only has (1) rear axle adjuster, on the right side. The left side appears to be machined for one, but mine was not there- is is supposed to have (2)? The one on the right side doesn't appear to fit very well either- the bike has a machined groove, the adjuster is flat, and therefore it sits crooked- is this correct?? What happened here? Also, my belt was VERY tight when I got it, and seems to have loosened some now- is there a belt tensioning procedure? How tight does it need to be? Is there a spec for belt deflection?

        Thanks!

          Good questions. I wondered about the mirror and look forward to seeing pictures. Pax, the admin may need a direct message to get his attention. He’s very responsive but not sure he has time for all messages. I don’t like the,PAS but find pas 3 works good enough, especially when the battery is 70-40%. Less than 40 and it’s hard and when it’s full I clown pedal. It is a fun bike but will stay tuned for the belt questions. I have heard that Gates has a tool and app to measure tension. I have a bike store that will wrench mine fortunately.

          Thanks for your order Mike. The manual is effectively the first page on this thread, which is updated regularly.
          Cloud9 is always a good upgrade for an ebike, nice choice
          This is the gates app https://play.google.com/store/apps/d...hl=en_US&gl=US
          It does not need to be very tight since only pedal power is going through the belt.
          I would have to get back to you on the axle. I suspect it is fine but if you have concerns please email a pic to support@lunacycle.com along with the question so we can check it against other bikes.

        It's not like you Eclipse bike owners need another stem to think about, but what the hell ...

        The Satori HEADSUP-ET stem extender turns 90 degrees whatever direction you want, and if you unscrew the top cap completely lets you pull the bars and stem off completely. It's not a stem in itself per se - instead it allows you to use any stock stem you like:


        Dunno how much slack the brake cables have on the Eclipse - always a consideration when altering the bar position.

          Are your folded dimensions of 45x35x22" with folded pedals? Does the width of the handlebar contribute to the 22" width?

            It does not come with folding pedals so I do not believe those measurements would be including folding pedals. Yes handlebars contribute to width. Likely if they are turned slightly it would be somewhat less, and you can loosen headset to turn it completely sideways if desired, the various folding stems mentioned in this thread would also help

          What size socket is needed for the rear wheel nuts?

            18mm is what I discovered. the front wheel nut is 15mm

            As craigtx said, 18mm. But you can't get a socket over one of the rear nuts as a cable is sticking out of it. I had to use a 18mm open spanner to take the wheel off (to put on tires with actual treads).

          I find if I want to get a good workout, I leave it on level 2. I'm not going very fast, but with level 3, I may as well take a taxi.

            That's totally normal for Luna E bikes. Level 3 also makes short work of 20mph headwinds.

          What are everyone's rear rack solutions (if any)? I was looking for one with a clamp that *might* also replace the seatpost clamp itself (not sure if that would even work!) but I'm actually having a bit of an issue even finding a decent, cool looking rack that'll simply fit the wider Eclipse seatpost (34mm, I believe).
