    Über den Link zur Fold Seite kann man die neue Variante mit Federung jetzt sogar schon in den Warenkorb legen, also nicht mehr Sold Out. Aber es ist im Reiter Europa regulär noch nicht angezeigt. Lieferdatum wurde von November auf Oktober geändert.

    Na denn mal abwarten, wann die neue Variante verfügbar wird. Vielleicht gibt's ja dann auch noch ein paar mehr Farben zur Auswahl.

    Nein, die neue Variante stand so noch garnicht zum Verkauf.

    Auf die Fold-Seite kam man mit dem Link die ganze Zeit, aber bisher waren das die Varianten für die August-Lieferung, die ja nur ein paar Tage online bestellbar waren. Neue ist in der Tat die Variante mit der Federgabel. Würde ich mir glatt noch eins bestellen. Hab ja von 2017 noch die Variante mit 36 V -Motor und ne Federgabel am Fold und mehr Power, das wäre schon was für mich. Hätte ich zwar dann insgesamt schon drei Sondors, hab ja auch noch das sondors X, aber drei Räder würden die Optionen für Familienausflüge schon sehr erweitern. Und zwei Fold bekommen wir auch ins Auto fürn Urlaub. Nur leider steht das Fold mit Gabel derzeit auf sold out. War das denn, als du die Federgabel-Variante entdeckt, hast noch verfügbar?

    Tag 271, inzwischen mal wieder beim Support angeklopft, ob es schon ein neues Lieferdatum für mich gibt. In der ersten Antwort kommen dann immer sehr betroffene Sätze und dass man sich schnellstmöglich mit dem Logistik Team in verbindung setzen wird. 4 Tage später kommt daraufhin dann wieder nur eine Standard Antwort : Aber mir ist etwas neues aufgefallen : Man kann unter Europe das Fold momentan ja garnicht mehr finden. Aber mit dem direkten Link, kommt man trotzdem rauf : https://sondors.com/products/sondors-fold-eu-only Diese Version gibt es jetzt scheinbar wieder in einer neuen Farbe, soll im November geliefert werden und hat vorne eine Federung verbaut. Vielleicht ist denen aufgefallen, dass sie meine Lieferung im Juli wieder nicht bedienen können und nächstes Lieferdatum ist erst November? Langsam überrascht mich nichts mehr

    Anybody had any luck with an after market kick stand for either the thin or Fat?

    Sondors Fat (Custom) loses power

    Unfortunately this is a not-uncommon problem. Over time some terminals work loose. Typically the terminal that is stuck is beyond repair. Yours sounds like it was in the early stages as you didn't report any arc'ing, serious melting and you didn't let any smoke out. You got out easier than most in that you had spare parts in hand and you knew how to swap things around. Usually someone has to wait for another cradle to arrive. For future reference here is one replacement cradle https://lunacycle.com/cradle/ Be careful when you buy from other vendors as these bottle batteries are sold in many different lengths and the cradle you find somewhere else may not fit a Sondors. p.s. in some cases the cause has been traced to the operator not properly seating the battery. Make sure yours is locked in and seated properly before you ride.

    Need new battery charger 48 volt

    For the Luna chargers, go to EBay and search for "xt60 female to barrel plug adapter" and you will see a wide variety of adapters that will keep you from having to cut any wires. This is the one I use but its sold out at Luna. https://lunacycle.com/xt60-female-to-barrel-male-plug/

    Sondors Fat (Custom) loses power

    Post Mortem on my battery cradle- Both of the nuts on the terminals were loose enough for me to turn the wire around. The Negative terminal had heated up enough to deform the plastic in the base and locked the spring loaded terminal in the depressed state. Interesting that it took a year for it to show up. I checked the connections on the replacement cradle and they needed some tightening. Bad quality control, if they even have it where these are manufactured. I think things are back in order on the bike, will rake it out tomorrow.

    Need new battery charger 48 volt

    You’ll have to change the plug to the battery with any of these to match your batteries connector. https://electrobikeworld.com/products/48v-lithium-battery-charger https://lunacycle.com/standard-basic-48v-dolphin-bottle-battery-charger/ https://lunacycle.com/batteries/chargers/luna-charger-48v-advanced-300w-ebike-charger/ https://lunacycle.com/48v-3amp-luna-mini-charger/ Reddy
  17. Hay Matt do you know where I can find a 48 volt charger for my batt? I’m dead in the water.

    Flaky connection on bottle battery

    Flaky connection on bottle battery

    I thought I searched the forums already for this! Thanks for posting. They both "spring" fine. But I will try some another tweak by removing the rubber vibration dampers that I added a while back. Also, I'll try some advice from another forum posting: https://electricbike.com/forum/forum/knowledge-base/batteries-aa/12542-luna-hardcase-battery-documentation Would be good to clean any carbon buildup off of the pins with a wire brush if possible (just the pins, not the contacts). This will help power flow better. If being used near ocean we recommend a light coating of dielectric grease on the pins such as Permatex 22058. If you have soldering skills and the cradle is only using one set of pins to run wiring to, then it would be useful to run the wiring to multiple pins in the cradle, the neighboring pin on both side is same polarity as the closest wire. Both pins on either side are capable of delivering power and if soldering the same wire to both pins it cuts the current in half for each pin. As such it is less likely to heat up since there is less bottlenecking of power. You need to start reinforcing the pack to the frame, this is critical. Maybe that means velcro, or even just using bungees. Checking to see if you can improve how you have the cradle mounted to frame to make it more sturdy can also help.

    Sondors Fat (Custom) loses power

    Member Josh found loose cradle terminals in the cradle base on his Fat. Poor Battery to Cradle connections can lead to arching and high current drain and can melt the plastic around the cradle pins. Reddy

    Flaky connection on bottle battery

    Are the battery contact pins making good contact? I have a similar power drop out problem and just discovered one of the contact pins in the cradle was not fully extended. It is stuck about half way down. They should extend about 5/16".

    Sondors Fat (Custom) loses power

    Well, I bought a spare battery and a few other parts.To make a long story short, I still had the power drop out problem. I even swapped out the controller to no avail. I noticed I could make the power cut out by applying pressure to the battery as it sits in the cradle. Turns out one of the battery contact pins in the battery cradle was not fully extended. It's stuck about half way down. I have a spare cradle which I'm going to swap out tomorrow. Not sure how easy the stuck pin might be to repair but I'll give it a try.
  23. The first time I rode the Sondors Mini, the rear wheel locked up. It will not turn backwards or forwards. I sent a message to the help desk. They said "The cause: The chain tensioner is to tight/rubbing the chain and prevents the chain from moving. You can adjust it yourself or have a local bike shop adjust it very easily. " He did not say where the chain tensioner is for us to loosen and after asking again, we have not heard anything more for almost a week. However, the chain does move easily, it just cannot move forward because the wheel won't turn (either backward or forward.) Has anyone encountered this problem? Can anyone tell me where the chain tensioner is and how to adjust it? I don't want to take a brand new bike to a bike shop. Video.MOV Video1.MOV

    Fold X upgrade questions

    I get about 23mph but I am 6'2 200lbs. That's the max setting for the controller.

    Fold X upgrade questions

    Thanks Steve! What top speed do you get at 25a? Is that the highest amps possible?
  26. Steve O

    Fold X upgrade questions

    If you get a new fold x you can up the current to 25A without a new controller, just by changing the settings in the LCD. Yes you can change to a 48v twist throttle. I purchased the single speed fold x and I can't pedal over 18mph. I didn't want the complexity or risk of a cheap 7spd. I may upgrade my chainring to a larger sprocket.
  27. Sondors is out of there 48 volt battery chargers, does anyone know where I can get one?
  28. Aerospace

    Got my new fold mini today!

    I wouldn't fold it when parked but do lock the battery in place. If you use a cable put it through the V under the seat. Folded or not it would be secure that way.
