    Luna X1 Galaxy

    Luna X1 #2 arrives and joins my original Luna X1 #1 from 2019
    The Galaxy paint job looks really cool

    This first video is just me assembling some of the parts I will be changing out on the new X1
    I'll add more info here in this post as I set up the new bike

        First ride on the new X1 last night

        My old X1 has firmware 14.4
        The new X1 has 14.6

        I could not tell too much difference except that my old X1 cuts out at 25mph
        At that point I am pedaling a 50 pound bike until I drop down below 25 mph and the motor kicks back in

        The new X1 did not do that
        At 28 mph the motor was still engaged on the 14.6 firmware

        Riding with 3 other riders on cross bikes last night doing mostly gravel.
        When we hit pavement and the speeds went up, being able to ride at 28 mph in a pace line was great.

        The other difference is that I have the short crank arms on the old X1
        The new bike has the stock long crank arms

        I like the short crank arms better so I ordered another pair today from Luna.

        Every one at the ride was spell bound by the Galaxy paint job :)

              Hi EL34. Very informative. Given me plenty of food for thought regarding my Dengfu E10. ( similar bike, we can’t get the Luna model in Australia) Think I’ll be checking my cassette soon and look to change it out. Thanks for posting.

                Very good information. Keep it coming.

                I just ordered the ZTTO 12 Speed Cassette. I decided to get the 11-46 cassette. Since I never use the 1st gear on my X1 maybe a chance to finally use it. I did notice ZTTO offered a chain combo with the cassette. It was listed as a M7100 chain which I take as the Shimano M7100 chain. Question is have you consider the Shimano chain over the SRAM chain for use with the ZTTO cassette?
