    The AK in the UK reference was for a guy named Andy Kirby over across the pond in the UK who builds up e-bikes and rides fast.

    I agree. When I go 30+mph it's om the road just to keep up with traffic. Everywhere else I just ride the speed a decent cyclist can go.Headwinds, hills, distances, hot weather are all handled by the motor. Crossing large intersections I use full throttle.Again just to keep up with traffic.

    Wasn't sure about the "AK in the UK" reference, but even for a radical, freedom loving guy like me I thought where the guy in the original video was doing his "speed test" was kind of irresponsible. Him hauling ass and dinging his little bell expecting all foot and bicycle traffic to move out of the way was kind of A-hole'ish. The land speed record...LOL!...that the guys at the bike shop I work at were trying to break that I mentioned in my previous post was done in an unpopulated industrial area near the shop that has no buildings yet...and no cars or other traffic at all. I tend to agree that the dude won't be doing ebike public perception any good if he keeps that up.

    I get 36mph om my 48V. BBSHD bike with 11-50 gearing and 26x2.15 tires. I'm 67 years old so it's almost all motor.So it seems about right for a BBSHD.

    This past Tuesday two of the younger guys in the shop did some speed tests on my Santa Cruz Nomad, BBSHD. It has a 2.4 X 26 rear tire/wheel setup and 11-50T cassette. I set my programming primarily for off road trail, but one of the guys got a 40.8 mph on flat pavement. The bike is freakin' heavy with a dual crown fork (coil spring) and a coil rear shock and 2.8 DH front tire. Battery is a 52V, 17.5AH. I thought that was a decent top speed for this bike even though it's not what I built this bike for.

    I made my own version of a video like this... here is what it looks like to go really fast on a Luna X1:

    Watching the video closely and zooming in, it appears he cant hit faster than 30 mph with just the throttle. Then add the noisy gear in the motor, the wind noise, and the crappy quality video from the GoPro Hero I think it looks faster than it really is....

    Apparently this bike has the same Bafang motor and uses less wattage than the X1 with Ludicrous mode. But for some reason our bikes do 25mph and this bike does over 36 MPH. In the video he claims he can hit 50 mph down hill. I would suspect that to be easily true because I can hit over 40 mph on the X1 down hill which is only 15 mph over the 25 gearing limit. Thus if the gearing limit on the Ex is providing 36 mph max, 15 mph over down hill is 51 mph.

    I was told that the 25 MPH limit on the X1 is because of front chain ring gearing. So if we change our gearing we can hit this same speed or faster?
