*****

Please note this bike is shipped factory programmed for 750 watts for street use.  Although each drive is shipped with a programming cable for adjusting pedal cadence levels, We do not approve hacking the program settings to un-limit ebikes ridden on public roads.  However those that want to re-program for off-road private property use can find many guides on the internet. If it's  for offroad use only you can specify in the order notes and we will program for 1500 watts.

Panasonic 48v GA 13.5ah Battery

The battery is the most vital of any ebike.  We use the best 18650 cells available (the Panasonic GA) which offer both amazing energy density and high performance.  (read a review on this ebike pack)  We make our packs with quality BMS, cases with cutting edge technology.  You can have confidence that when this bike is outfitted with a Luna Cycle battery you are getting the ultimate in reliable, safe, performance at an affordable price.  Our competitors sell a 48v of this pack for over $1000.  Look here for more Info on this pack.

Research ebike battery packs and you will see the Panasonic GA Shark is the best battery available today.

We use a quick change pack which allows you to extend your range by quickly swapping the pack. You can swap packs in about a minute.

 

Mounted Inside the Triangle - Perfect

Also this ebike has the battery mounted inside  the frame in the triangle where it belongs for the ultimate in balance and good looks. The battery in the triangle is the best solution for any ebike.  We don’t do the easy thing like other ebike companies and weld the battery case to a rear rack which is the worst place for the battery making your bike back heavy. (especially with a rear hub motor)

Also out packs are quick release for the ultimate in convenience. Double your range by buying a 2nd battery at a discount when you buy this bike.

Top of the Line Mid Drive motor set up

Luna is offering this ebike in a BBS02 or BBSHD format to make this the most ultra portable and lightweight bike. These drives are the most reliable and powerful drive systems available on the market today, do your  own research to back that up.  And much more expensive for us to buy than a cheap hub motor.  We are selling them for less money than cheap hub motor bikes typically sell for.
 
These mid drives are completely silent, efficient, and fun to ride. They have  quality color display and both throttle and pedal assist.
 
Luna Cycles offers no hub motor bikes, but only mid drive bikes because we believe in offering only the cutting edge.  
 
You will not find this quality with any production bike at this price point anywhere.
 
Or you can save even more money by converting your own bike and buying one of our kits here. (read about the advantage of mid drive here)
 
Luna Cycles realizes that not everyone is into building and is offering a turn key hardtail with a BBS02 or BBSHD drive (read about our most popular drive here). This is still another price break through for a quality bike with quality components.  We want to make awesome ebikes affordable for everyone.
 
Although we specialize in build your own kits, Luna can build your bike for you at a fraction of the price a store bought bike would cost you for this amazing performance.

 

Color Display / Control Center

color display.jpg

Like all the Luna Bikes this bike comes with the DPC-14 a  full color display which gives you valuable insight such as battery life, speed, and miles traveled.  It automatically changes to dark mode when the sun goes down so you ride in “stealth” mode.  There are very few production bikes under $5,000 with this quality of display.

 

23 Piece Luna Toolkit

Because we feel every rider should have the capacity to wrench, we are including a free luna kit which is all tools we either made or hand selected to be perfect companion to one of our mid drive bikes.

This will help you because our high performance mid drive bikes will need  occasional adjustments, This kit along with our video guides will give you the tools you need.

Frame Sizing

Look at our chart in the image file for reference to frame sizing.

Please don't stress about about frame size the way you do when you buy a pedal bike. It’s not as important.

With electric bikes it is not important to get the right frame sizing, since you are not reliant on efficient human power for propulsion, you won’t notice much of a difference since the motor is doing the lion's share of the work.. We actually recommend going with  a smaller size with an ebike than you would get for a pedal bike, because smaller sizes are better for keeping the weight and center of balance low, and are easier to get on and off of (since ebikes are heavier they are more awkward to tilt to swing your leg over). You can always raise your seat or raise your handlebars, but keep the center of balance low and get a smaller sized bike if you can.

Note that many of our  full suspension bikes only come in large and xlarge this is because it is the only sizes that fit our battery packs.

Please allow two weeks for  shipping since each bike is built to order

Warranty Options

We are an ecommerce company and ship this bike to you wherever you are at. We charge minimal markup because we do not offer face to face support.  Most of our sales are to enthusiasts and to builders who know what they want and don’t need a lot of assistance from their dealer. You can use our forums and knowledge base to find the answer to almost any support question you have.

If you expect your bicycle to be flawless and never need adjustment or maintenance, we recommend that you buy your ebike from a local brick and mortar ebike store if you have one near you, especially if you want person to person support when it comes to adjustments and maintenance of your ebike. We do not offer this level of support.

Bikes are large and expensive to ship, and once you ride it it is used, and we do not offer any returns on your bike unless it is dead on arrival.

For 30  days after you get the bike we will replace any parts that are defective.

These are just bicycles and are easy to maintain and to work on. We really encourage you to learn basic bicycle maintenance or get a relationship with a local bike shop.

The Drive system and battery we will cover for 90 days for part replacement.  

Extended warranties are available for 6 months and 1 year and 2 year  for an added cost. Warranty covers any parts that are defective we will send to you with instructions how to install.

Since our drive systems are modular every repair is easy with the right part in hand.

That being said this a high quality bike with a high quality component system and should be as solid as any ebike. However you will be required to do routine adjustments and maintenance on your own.

  1. Awesome bike. Awesome company.

    Posted by Todd Mitchell on May 16th 2017

    This is my first ebike, and I'm glad I went with Lunacycle. They were extremely helpful with answering questions, and helping me pick out options.

    The bike itself has a decent frame and the components work well, although I'm going to replace the front fork with a 100mm beefier one (an extra $150 for a Rock Shox silver). The electric motor and pedal assist integration are incredible! It's much better than I ever imagined, and so much fun to ride (can't believe everyone doesn't have one of these).

    I got the BBSHD upgrade motor, and I highly recommend it. It's silent, sturdy, and gives you amazing power. Works great with the 48volt battery, but if you're a speed freak, you might want to go with the 52V battery, and get set up with 52V from the beginning. For me,, 48V is plenty of power (I've gotten the bike up to 40mph on flats, and it does 30mph easily). Having 1300watts or more of power at your command is so much more fun than other companies that set you up with 350 watt bikes and call it a day. If you like to ride, you're going to want at least 1000watts or more.

    I use this bike mostly to commute, and I've cut my commute time in half. Plus, when I get to work I'm not sweaty or panting. Pedal assist integration is seamless and very intuitive. It makes you feel like you're Superman when you pedal. I've also taken the bike on some single-track, and that's a blast. But I'm going to hold off doing rockier stuff until I replace that front fork (it works, but you don't want to bet your skull on it).

    Here's a quick rundown of the upgrades and accessories I'd suggest if you're a first-time buyer like me:
    —Definitely get the BBSHD upgrade. Such a sweet motor! 1300watts and it barely gets warm.
    —Get the advanced charger (worth it to preserve your battery life).
    —If you're a thrill seeker, see if you can go with a 52V battery and a 52V charger from the start. The 48V battery works great though too, and gives 1300 watts on my set-up.
    —The Cree front and tail lights are excellent and well-priced.
    —Get the Mosso pedals (good deal here), and they look so much better than stock.
    —I like the 750C color display (but I've got nothing to compare it to). To access the settings, press "M" twice very fast. To access the "basic settings" press the power button once after you're in the display settings.
    —Get the Gear Sensor! It pauses the motor when you shift gears, which saves you from having to manually shut off the motor to shift. In pedal assist mode, it works much much better to have a gear sensor. Definitely worth the extra $50.

    So far, I'm using the stock BBSHD 46T gear, and it works great for commuting and some trails. I recommend trying it out before getting a smaller one.

    That's it! For under $2000 you're good to go. If you're on the fence, get the bike. Biking with silent power feels like flying.

  2. Great bike overall

    Posted by Steven A Fritz on Apr 23rd 2017

    The Luna Alite is a good bike overall and I gave it a 5 star rating even though there were a couple small issues with accessories such as the display being different than the DPC-14 (a newer 750c type). The bike is put together well and runs great. I would like to be able to program the power assist levels to lower the amount of assist at the lower levels. It gives too much power at level I which prevents me from getting the level of exercise I am seeking. What I do is turn the power assist off for a big part of the ride, and turn it to level I when I need it. I upgraded to the BBSHD and would recommend that to anybody buying this bike.
