Any thoughts on the bike or the company? I'd never heard of them before today--but the price sure got my attention!
While certainly a compelling reason to be interested, this is just software and easily modified by any brand. I have just made the 3rd update on my Shimano DU e8000 and everytime I do it, there is a noticable improvement in battery life, or rider experience (smoother shifting in higher assistance modes). Shimano is in deep on this and just at the beginning, I assume that in another 5 years we will be blown away by the seamless interaction. I'm stoked!
Yup, their only area of expertise is in the E part of ebike. The only reason this one resembles an older model trail bike is that some Chinese engineer copied one and Luna had nothing to do with it. Reading Eric's posts on FB makes it clear that he hasn't a clue and doesn't care. Nor do the majority of his fan base.Furthermore, they know nothing about bicycles and will sell anything they can bolt together and obtain for cheap. Literally.
Sorry if I appear to you to have "attacked you", (but I don't really want to take the time to read your past posts) but I would think you would be better served by a LBS in your next purchase, that way you can go back there face to face and resolve any complaints you have after the sale, first hand. This would save you the hassle of making blanket condemnations of a company via the internet, where interested followers can only see your side of things. I have done 5 or 6 K worth of biz with Luna, and will continue to give them my business. The joy I have gotten by riding a bike that they had something to is worth every penny.Then you know nothing about me. despite your opportunity to learn otherwise by reading my posts. Even in this own thread I've revealed that I've done more relevant business with Luna than you have. Once again, people prove that their first reaction is to resort to personal attacks.
The proper analogy would be Ruger offering 2 gun options on a product page that look alike, but one fires BB's and one fires bullets. But yet the description makes it appear that you could legally bring either one to your local cub scout meeting, and BB guns are for sissies.Luna will give ebikes a bad rep, like Ruger or Smith & Wesson gives hand guns a bad rep, it's up to the end user to use it responsibly. Maybe the big hand gun makers should limit their firepower to BB gun type forces, like the Euro designed bikes with 250 watts of power.
