  2. The best that is online and that’s pretty limiting is on the Sondors.com X page. https://shop.sondors.com/pages/sondors-x electricbikereview.com doesn't even review it and some of their review data is either incomplete or wrong on some Sondors models. A Cursory Google search doesn’t reveal anything pertinent. The best I can do is suggest info and data embedded in this forum and mostly dealing with upgrades to the Original Sondors. Basically the same except for the frame it’s self. The X has a larger battery box to accommodate the 48V Sondors Battery with reconfigured interior baffling a
  3. I decided to try further embedding the brake pads by riding on without any adjustments and it seems to have subsided. Oftentimes just riding more covers a multitude of things...Thanks again for the helpful advice!
  4. Does anyone have a link/source with the full detailed specs for the current (2020) Sondors X ? I’m looking at possible upgrades and I would love to see the detailed parts list for easy reference. Thanks for any help with this!!!
  5. Last week
  6. I hope that’s right and I can use the same one on each. Two returns and another new order just now for it. I have two 180 disks. Looks like Chad did too and his match. Crossing fingers.
  7. I’ve seen the same problem on my 2015 Sondors Original Fat except on the rear. I use Magura MT-5e’s. The specified rear adapter for my 180mm disc, fit but the pads (4), only wiped 2/3rds of the disc. I ended up modifying the adapter by machining off some of both posts, to get a precise fit. I use a 302mm front and 180mm rear disc. ‘I’m pretty sure that Sondors, to minimize different part count and unitize compatibility, used rear frame and front fork mounts that would use the same adapter both front and rear. ‘This is the same strategy, that the manufacture of my Grumman American Air
  8. I came across a difference with my model. I have to use the same brake adapter for each wheel. As seen in the image of my front brake here, my front fork has a different mounting bracket on it. I returned two other adapter I had, and ordering this one again for the rear wheel. Slowly and steadily. It’s the sporadic shipping of items slowly me down. Cable adapters showing up next.

  10. Why is this not on the top of the topic list aren't they in dated order?
  11. Hello I recently put the down payment on the new motorcycle and and are continuing with the payment plan. I've been unable to get a reply from my emails after placing the order. Got a loan from my bank to pay in full but they required sales tax form title information VIN number etc because this is a motor vehicle and not a bicycle. Is anyone got any kind of info if they're going to issue VIN numbers for people who want to take a loan out? Thanks Joe
  12. Yeah, that wouldn't surprise me, but I'll wait for it to exist in enough quantity that I can see what the range is. I can take surface streets to work and then the top speed would be about 50 (for a few miles), and average would be more like 35. I feel like I'll eventually end up with a Zero.
  13. Better plan on buying an extra Battery right off the bat. If you only weigh 140 pounds, ride only with a 20mph tailwind, down hill… you might see 20 miles @ highway speeds with a moderate reserve. If you’re handy and thrifty, you can adapt a couple of BMW 68V / 2Kwh BMW auto battery modules, times 2, to act as backup for less than 6 Benjamin’s. Chargers are just over one Benny.
  14. Made an account to say- I really hope they pull this off. I commute about 20 miles each way, and SoCal Freeway speeds are about 75Mph, so it will be close... But my electric car has made me want an electric bike something fierce, and I prefer small and flickable over big and heavy everyday.
  15. Ooh, that’s nice and easy. I’m glad I found this forum. Thank you.
  16. You can list the batteries that you want to sell in our Market Place listings. REDDY
  17. Yea, there’s twelve types for twelve different adapters. I’m lucky this works. Have to wait for disc two to arrive. It says February 4. I thinks it’s coming from Taiwan or something. I’ll definitely do the battery upgrade as well. Buy one and keep one Sondors battery, sell the other two.

  19. That’s a disc brake adapter and it can be confusing because of the two common mounting systems. International Standard; I. S. & Post, along with different adapters for various sized disc. Disc brake adapters are a black hole of weird standards. Let’s stick to the 3 most popular ones so we don’t go crazy and reach for the Mezcal. I.S., aka International Standard is for better or worse, the current brake mounting standard for bicycle frames. It’s featured on the most bikes, and when most folks think: disc brake adapter, some sort of I.S. adaptor is what they think about. Confusingly, mos
  20. I have this kind of bracket on my front forks. I come to find that I had three different brackets sent with the pertaining parts. This one fit, but only after figuring it out. The one bracket I received just didn’t work at all for my setup. Just waiting on the rear disc to arrive by February 4 and I can do my rear brake. The front one works marvelously now.
  21. Sorry but your posts seem to be incomplete. If you are adding pictures you can’t copy & paste them but use the attachment options on the bottom of the text pane. If your referring to the picture of Chad’s Thin with the suspension fork, in the link I supplied, yes that was a later post from Chad. The picture above the picture of his Thin, just illustrates the bag necessary to use the L3 - 52v battery but that bike is not a Sondors. REDDY
  22. I come to find out this fork does not match my Sondors Thin. Is this a fork with shocks on it?

  24. These YouTube videos, show the general procedure for Tektro hydraulics, regardless of model, and explains the basic service kit and tools required. The most important part of hydraulic maintenance is keeping the fluid off of the exterior of the caliper, pads and disc. I like having automotive disc brake cleaner spray, that I have on hand, for my automotive brake pad replacement and repairs, in addition to the isopropyl alcohol. https://youtu.be/cS0pBCBT65g’ alternately: https://youtu.be/q0SvqxMK_PA REDDY
