I have put over 1,100 miles on this bike in just over two months and am thoroughly impressed with this bike and Luna as an eBike company in general. This is my first eBike but I have been riding mountain and commuting on road bikes for much of my life.
I am 6’2”, about 210lbs, and commute between 26 and 36 miles per day. I consider myself a strong peddler and am typically using either PAS 2 or 3 while occasionally hitting the throttle and regularly get over 100 miles per charge, and have gotten over 120 before.
I went with the twist throttle and the gear shift sensor options. Since then I have switched to downhill platform pedals and a Brooks saddle. I like the larger wheels for speed, handling, and coasting.
This is a heavy bike but handles amazingly, low center of gravity and tight turning radius. The breaks work great. Get used to shifting a lot; I don’t think that is specific to this bike but eBikes in general.
Since getting this bike I have only driven to work a couple of times; it has been a complete game changer. Commuting in LA sucks until you ride a Luna.
