    I put a standard bar extension on it. It may not be the best fit, still it raises it up 2 inches which is what I wanted. I ordered up some fenders from Ali Express.

      Yes. that is the frame. They look like the fenders I'm looking for as well. great find FreedomBuilder!. I would order them but their site says stocking soon. I hope they are wide cause the badgers are a solid 4.5 and the sidewall lugs should throw some shtuff. I will try contact them monday. did you order or just find em?

      I've been watching those Enki fenders for weeks/months and they've always been out of stock. It's unclear if they'll ever come back in stock because I believe Enki already ships fenders with all their bikes.

      Ok. so we need to find out the china supplier/manufacturer of those fenders, or "mudguards" as they seem to call them. It looks like Enki is using most of the same components as supplied on our Eclipses - tektro brakes, forks, and bars.
      What we need is some crafty individuals, like Pax and the LUNA team, or any other detective type knowledgeable people to track these down and help us get em!
      These "shorty" fenders for our bmx style frames look perfect to my eye, and my Eclipse MUST have them or similar. HELP

    The bike should have a longer stem so you could raise the bars. A serious computer would be nice where you could dial in the prefered assist levels. I put on a stem extension but it seemed not to fit very well. I just love the bike all the same.

      Some riders just want throttle, others want the work out. For me the level two is perfect. I can get my heart rate up and I feel like the assist is really nice.

        I was surprised how short the seat post is, I'll need to find a longer one.

        Hey everyone,
        Not sure if this question has been asked already, but is the Bafang motor on the Eclipse a cassette style w/a freehub or freewheel style motor? I'm leaning towards cassette. Thank you!

          Heya. I want to swap the brakes to hydros. Are the tektro’s compatible with the motor cutoffs? Can the cutoffs be omitted?

            I tend to use PAS for more steady on terrain that's not varying a ton and throttle for controlling the amount of assist quickly and precisely when the terrain/conditions are more demanding - PAS takes away any wrist strain from the throttle for the periods where it makes sense...

            Aah steady terrain... what's that? The boardwalk at the beach on day two of eclipse ownership was the last flat land I've been on. around home at a minimum your either going slightly uphill or slightly down, and then there's the real up and down. never realized the seriousness of the grades till I got something with pedals! using lots of throttle! I did experiment with the pas levels and thought they were pretty good, and i'll use em more when I get to the valley. Not complaining tho.. its 3D landscape, low traffic, lush and green with lots to see.

            i swapped the stock brakes for hydros, easy peasy (and now the bike has some stopping power with 2 fingers!). i did remove the nanny for cutting the motor when braking, but none of my other ebikes or emoto have it, so i wasn't fussed.

          Pax,
          Would you happen to know if the Bafang motor on the Eclipse is a cassette style motor or a freehub style motor? Thank you

            Absolutely,
            I installed a KT-22A controller (waterproof connector version), paired with a KT-LCD7U display. KT controllers must be paired with any KT displays, there are several to choose from. I also installed a KT-V12L Dual Hall 12 Magnet PAS Sensor (waterproof connector) which was not that bad to install. Because the KT-22A controller comes with JULET connector type cables, the Eclipse stock display, throttle, PAS and brake levers (the brake cut off cable connectors) were not compatible. Pretty much the HIGO type cables that come on our Eclipse, had the opposite (male/female) connectors than the JULET connector cables had from the KT controller. I just purchase most parts in a set which I will link below. I have also done a lot of testing with the settings that you have access too within the KT displays, which I can share my parameters with others if needed. The only downside if any, is the KT controller is a little larger than the stock, smaller controller. So it will not fit within the smaller portion of the bike frame. I just mounted mine in a small bag on the frame to where the XT60 connector could reach the Eclipse's power cable.. I will post a few pictures so others can get a idea. The KT controller comes with banana style power plugs, and the Eclipse has a XT60 style connector for its power plug. I have added the needed connector links below as well.
            I added a few pictures of everything installed with how the controller may look attached in a bag.
            The one picture of what it looks like when you pull out the stock controller.
            Hope this explains a little more and or helps someone out!

            P.S. While I did gain a couple more MPH, I mainly did this for the PAS feature.





            The XT60 connectors needed:

            Pax,
            I forgot to include in my motor question....what size dropouts are in the rear? 170mm I think someone mentioned before, but wanted to double check.
            Thank you.

          Here are the pictures.

            Thank you!

          We'll all want to dial the Eclipse into our own unique preference. The seat post is too short for anyone over 5'10". The power is wonderful, the look is also. I have fenders, lights, and rack on order. What my final set up is, is still to be determined. All in all I'm very impressed with the bike. Would I buy it again, for sure, yes I would.

            I fully understand where you are coming from nosarajr, had to to tweak a few things to my liking as well. As for power, I prefer a little bit more. Before I received my Eclipse, my wifes Fiido M21 ebike arrived, that bike let you hold 2 buttons on the display for 5 sec, and it was unlocked to about 28-30mph. Same wattage motor too. At least that option was there if the owner wanted that. Please show us a few pictures of your setup once you get her all done! At the end of the day, I do enjoy the Eclipse very much!

            hey guys, i went with a seat post rack. Might not be anything you would like, but pics in my post : thank you luna for eclipse.

            I think it's important to be aware that any weight loaded onto the swingarm box frame is UNSPRUNG load on the wheel - Not desireable under most any circumstance. 12 lbs extra (rack + small load) wants to turn the rear wheel into a steamroller.

            after working like a fool to get my rack to fit the seat post frame tube, (there's about an inch below the seat clamp,) I was in walymart and saw some inexpensive schwinn racks in black with the same drop angles as my topeak rack. they'd need working but is doable

          Pax, help. I need info on Eclipse forks, as pertains to the posts mounting for the calipers and adaptors. Going to mount Magura mt5's with 203 rotors when they arrive from germany.

          what brand are the forks? do you know anything about the posts? Magura fitment chart for 203 mm rotor mounting lists numbers like: 6", 7", 8" , and IS. Does IS mean industry standard? or am I being way too simple?
          The magura adaptor chart shows direct mount no adaptor for 203mm rotor if front fork is IS. different adaptors for the other numbers.

          I think I got the rear frame adaptor I will need figured out according to their chart= especially if there is such a thing as industry standard for frame and fork brake mount locations.

          thanks in advance for any info from anyone (that knows what their talkin bout). Would like to order front adaptor so I can install asap. at 210 mi the hills got my oem pads half gone!

            The tech at magura told me I need to know what my forks are to figure out what I need.
            But best I could come up with is "they are black". I cleverly removed the ugly stickers I couldn't read as soon as I got the bike.

            I would have to check on the brand (likely not one magura would have specs on, it is an oem brand) but am pretty sure it is a regular post mount. IS is an older standard, most modern forks you get these days are post mount. Might be abbreviated PM on their chart.

            This may help https://www.mtbdirect.com.au/blogs/m...ht-brake-mount
            As an alternative, any local bike shop should be able to help pick out the adapter you need if you bring the bike and the brake.

            Not cost effective, but disappointment and waiting should be minimized by the fact I ordered the three available likely candidates from germany.
            I will post my results on this brake upgrade in a few weeks after all the parts get here.

          Yes it seems to work fine, most extenders come with two bolts, the original had just one.

            Have you heard anything yet for the rear dropout size on the Eclipse? Thank you sir!

              Not yet, it can sometimes take a while to hear back from our mechanic, especially since they're moving warehouses right now. If pressed for time you can probably determine just by holding a yardstick up to it, but in any case, as soon as I hear back I'll let you know.

              Thank you! Yea I got a rough measurement just at or a tad over 190mm. Was just making sure. I am a little confused with the Bafang motor that the Eclipse has installed. It is showing on the specs sheet being 175mm OLD size, but the Eclipse frame dropout is looking like 190mm. Is this because the Bafang motor is a cassette, and the Gates Belt drive single speed system needs to be used with spacers to make up that extra mm, if that makes sense? I was looking into a bigger motor upgrade kit, but still wanted to use the Gates drive. I know if I purchase a freewheel motor instead of cassette, then I cant use the Gates since it was stated the Gates uses a HG driver with spacers, which works with cassette and not a freewheel motor. This department is where my knowledge is lacking. Maybe someone can help me out with this. Thank you

            I bought a wider seat than is normally seen on a road bike, tomorrow I'll give it a test.

              I went 33 miles, level 2 and pedaled firmly the whole way and showed I used about 1/3 of the battery?

                That's awesome. I know it's flat where you ride, but that's impressive to me. What kind of speed were you able to maintain in level 2? and any idea of elapsed time for the 33 mi? Hope I get to take my eclipse to fla sometime soon, got a buddy in daytona

                I find it amazing that you can use level two for that length of time. I use level three and do that but I’m also 70 years old

              Yes I will, I'm still at it, I put on a long seat post, so now at least I can have it at the correct height. I also change the saddle, I have a comfy one now. It seems less professional having a saddle you'd never see on a serious road bike, but if it works and it seemed to, I'll have to go with less style points.
