Who would have thought adding a mid drive to my Recumbent trike would make riding so much nicer?
I just finished a month long build of the BBSHD 1000watt Luna Bafang e-assist to my Terra Trike Rover Recumbent trike. I live in hill country, and this changed everything - for the better. Did not matter than I went from a 32T front chain ring to the 46T chainring up front. E-assist made going up hills a lot easier. Never had this thing out of E level 3, and gear 2 out of 8 and I climbed a very long and steep hill (15 percent grade) with just a little effort. A lot less effort had I still had just the 32T crank up front. The 860C display is easy to read and reprogram if necessary. Tried the throttle after setting max speed to 20mph, and it worked wonderfully. I use it to get me started when I stop on hills, then go back to e-assist to finish them.
Best Money I have spent on an accessory for my trike yet! And although the kit did not come with any instructions, I was able to install it all myself. Help from the Luna team was awesome! Will be recommending this to anyone who asks about it. I did the first shake down ride yesterday and got in 22 miles, the longest I have been able to ride yet.
Thanks Luna! Great product!
