For the final 3 years, my main ebikes have all been powered by the Ludicrous 2500W BBSHD mid-drive unit. A great pal of mine discovered a strategy to hack the Bafang controller for Lunacycle by shunting it to extend the height energy from 1500W to 2500W and for essentially the most half, the drive unit appears to have the ability to take the abuse (except for the nylon gears which now you can upgrade with steel). Lunacycle has held its controllers fairly near their chest and solely bought them with whole ebike builds as a means of retaining them out of the palms of their rivals in addition to a strategy to simply promote extra e-bikes. For the primary time ever they’re providing their Ludicrous controller powered BBSHD drive models with a Wolf pack direct to the general public for $1200 proper here which is a fully insane deal. When you don’t imagine me, do a google seek for “Ludicrous BBSHD critiques” on the web and see what folks say about this unit. It’s over-the-top insane.
Though you should purchase a BBSHD and not using a Ludicrous controller, it’s not even one thing you need to contemplate. It solely provides 20% to the worth and it provides 66% extra energy. The Ludicrous BBSHD is a pussycat within the lower-powered PAS modes and so long as you don’t peg the throttle you’ll hardly discover all that energy beneath the hood. When you really want to scream up that hill at 30mph or rocket downhill at over 45mph since you’re being chased by zombies, you’ll be glad you’ve got the additional energy obtainable.
I actually get a number of emails a day that say “I’m constructing this, or that and I don’t know what to purchase”. I attempt to reply all of them, however what I inform folks is that the Ludicrous BBSHD is the drive unit to have, too unhealthy you’ll be able to’t simply purchase it straight out. Effectively proper now you really should purchase it straight up, and there’s no assure that after Black Friday is over that it is possible for you to to proceed to purchase the Ludicrous controller. As soon as Luna’s rivals begin shopping for up their merchandise and reselling them on their ebikes I’m fairly certain that they are going to cease promoting them.
I’ve written so many articles in regards to the Ludicrous controller like this one about how one can reprogram it so it does 60Amps as a substitute of simply 50Amps (it will void your guarantee). I’ve additionally written tons of critiques of their ebikes with Ludicrous controllers like this one in regards to the KHS 3000 which I purchased and this one in regards to the Big Anthem 2. Each single electrical fatbike I journey within the snow all are sporting the Ludicrous controller and I would like it as a result of if you’re plowing via 6 inches of heavy moist slush you want all the facility you may get.
I’ve examined the Wolf pack extensively for the previous 18 months and I can say with some certainty that this pack is strong. I’ve performed a assessment here and another review here evaluating it to different crappy body packs available on the market. In case you are shopping for the Ludicrous controller you need to solely contemplate the 30q pack, in case you are going with the inventory BBSHD then the GA cells are simply tremendous and can get you just a little extra vary (13.5Ah as a substitute of 12Ah).
In conclusion, I counsel you do what I’m doing this vacation season and that’s to seek out your spouse’s bank card and purchase your self one thing particular this season. You recognize the happier you might be, the higher off your relationship might be (my spouse and I’ve just lately determined to get counseling collectively principally as a result of I’m a giant dumb jerk). Glad holidays and don’t kill your self together with your new overpowered house constructed ebike.
To all of the lots of of people that have ever requested me by e mail what to purchase, the Ludicrous BBSHD drive unit with the 30q wolf pack is what you need to get ($1199 right here, proper now). Put it on no matter crappy pedal bike you’ve got kicking round and also you’ll uncover what the phrase ‘enjoyable’ actually means.
Luna has a bunch of different stuff on sale for Black Friday here however nothing is as thrilling as having the ability to get a BBSHD with a Ludicrous controller.
