  2. There are literally a hundred recommendations here for accessories that fit the XS, because all other models of the Original Fat and the XS, use MOSTLY, the same upgrades and accessories. I was under the impression that the XS uses the Same; 26 x 80mm wheels and 26 X 4.9 Chaoyang tire as other Sondors Fat models. What does it say on your tires’ sidewall? This forum is vast and mostly underused by those looking for information. Simply look in https://sondorsforum.com/forum/6-sondors-ebike-accessories/ As far as getting help with the problems and replacement parts from the Sondors Company, it relies almost exclusively on the Facebook Group. You need to go to the Sondors Storm Owners Group on Facebook. Once there ask to join. Once inside, there is a link to a support form that you can use to get to Sondors tech support. While in the Group, I suggest opening up a thread and asking the community for help on this as well. That will trigger folks' to tag the Sondors support reps who frequent that group and who are tasked with fast-tracking help in situations like yours - assuming they do not see your post themselves and contact you directly. https://vimeo.com/349762157 REDDY

  4. Having FUN! I know nothing about the XS. Still own my Step though, and now an MXS. These two bikes should cover all the bases. Here's what I did with my Step. I swapped out the 52 tooth chainring for a 47 tooth Aluminum one from Lite Pro for easier hill climbing and easier PAS 0 pedaling. Might have been able to go with a 42 tooth chainring , but I believe in baby steps, and did not want to (maybe) have to take a few links out of the chain. The 47 tooth chainring is a nice compromise (cheap and easy swap) and will keep using it. I am using a Schwinn Folding Rear Bike Rack. $22 from the local Target store. I have installed this same rack on my MXS. Here is a link to this rack on Amazon: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B0089WYU1G/?coliid=I3B60JJT5NIL48&colid=1TBERP0SJV49H&psc=1&ref_=lv_ov_lig_dp_it
  5. Helo, I too just bought an XS and flat love it! Also shopping for accessories finding that difficult due to the lack of specs for the five inch wheels. Will post items that work out for the XS. WE are wintering in Tucson Az. this year and loving our XS and Step Sondors.........happy trails!
  6. Hello we own a Step too. The wife loves it! I have the XS and it's a peach too. Tried others out and found them over priced in the extreme. We are beginning to look at accessories finding it difficult to find fat tire racks as the information is so limited as to specs. Would certain.y appreiciate your feed back on your purchaes for your Step. The five inch tires on my XS are proving especially difficul;t to locate information about. Have fun!
  7. Yes we have fished out of Gastons many times too. Love the Root River basin in Minnesota (Lanesboro and Preston) more as it has native reproducing Browns and Brookies. WE are enjoying both Tucson and our visit to Huntington Beach at my sons--running the sand beaches is a real blast. Have Karens bike now although when my son picked it up they gave us an accessory pack that is for another model--think it's for the 20 folding models and not her Step. Fun mix up situation dealing with corp folks to resolve but no sucess. While we love the comapny it is odd to deal with problems. It's for sale or trade (The kit) should anyone be interested. We are trying to find racks bags, and other accessories and hope to find good information on this forum. Thanks for the reply.

  9. That’s an Epic Ride. I’ve been close to there and landed the WanderLust, my 2 place Grumman @ Twentynine Palms to refuel on my way to San Francisco. It’s been days since I’ve ridden because of 5 days of rain but that should be ending mid morning today. REDDY
  10. Hey Reddy, A day late but back at you Reddy. Rode a 52 mile round rip earlier this week. Palm Desert to Mecca Calif. just when you think you’ve seen it all we passed The Thermal Club in Thermal, CA. Riding mile after mile the middle of endless carrot and kale fields. Google Thermal Club and prepare to be amazed. JF
  11. Hey Albert Great looking bike. I just received my own MSX- still in the box. Here in Canada the weather is changing I have been trying to get a few last rides in before the snow makes it difficult. I like your idea- swapping out the tires for some smaller, less luggy, model. I have been planning on installing 2.8 Speedsters in the spring. Your Schwalbes look like low rolling resistance for an "all terrain" tire. I run 3.5 Speedsters on my "X". I also have a Thin and a Fold"X" and run mostly slick tires in summer. Luggy for winter. I see you have also swapped out the seat for something you have found more comfortable. Sondors is a great platform to make what ever you want. I put a larger crankset on all of my other Sondors bikes and that makes a huge difference. I see that Sondors has also increased the size of that component with the MXS model. I will be mounting fenders and bags, maybe a carrier -seems like a lot of room behind the seat. I don't want it to interfere with my leg when mounting thou. Anyway, thanks for the posting. Enjoy your ride. Really looking forward to riding my new MXS. -Brian

  13. Heelo, oups OK, I thought this was the official forum. I can delete my post. Celine
  14. Hi Celine, as Reddy has stated we are a forum of owners for owners. So your request would be better addressed if you would write the official sondors team directly. To my knowledge there is no update on this, so still no certification for the SONDORS eBikes.
  15. Celine; This, the Sondors Owners Forum, is not related to Sondors.com, except in the fact that the our members are mostly Sondors eBike owners here to help other owners and prospective owners with eBike problem solving, upgrades and modifications. Please go to Sondors.com and make your requests there ... or ... the Sondors Facebook group where there are administrators that can help. REDDY
  16. Typically what happens is that the PAS magnet disk gets too far away from the pickup sensor, down behind the right, front crank. Slide the disk as close to the sensor as possible. If that doesn't help, check your PAS plug (yellow) inside the bike to ensure the connection is tight.
  17. Hi folks. Many of you will know me and many may not, but I'm one of the admins on the primary Sondors Owner's group on Facebook. I'm also one of the original backers, and have owned a whole fleet of Sondors bikes since 2015. Over the years I've owned 4 originals from multiple campaigns (still have one), a Fold X (still have) and a Fold XS (sold). I've been upgrading these for years, so ping me if you have any questions. Oh...I'm in beautiful San Diego!
  18. Hello, I would like a statement on SONDORS letterhead stating the specific specifications of my SONDORS Fold X which describes that the bike has a motor of 250 watts and an asistance up to 25 km / h as expected on EN 15194. This document allows me to have a financial gift from my city to promote people using ecological transportation (ebike). Any news on a Certificate of Conformity ? Thank you for your feedback. best regards, Celine
  19. Welcome aboard Kennith. Arizona’s a great winter riding venue. I’ve flown in to Gaston’s Resort to fish for trout on the White. Is that where you caught yours? REDDY
  20. Well Hello to everyone. I and my wife just boiught two new Spondors, one is the XS and other is the Step. We are older folks 69,her and 73 me. Kenneth and Karen Lane. We are wintering at Ricon East in Tucson. On.y have my XS as the Step is delayed. Love mine and really am impressed with it. Tried Pedego's and found them both too expensive and lacking refinement. The cost factors for Pedego makes me marvel at how they exist. We are in Tucson till April so anyone near please help us get aquainted with local bikers. Also motorcyclists who brought along one of our Spyders should anyone be into motorcycle touring . Our home state is Missouri. Both retired and enjoying it!
  21. That bike looks awesome. Thanks for sharing! I somehow need to get my hands on it here in Europe. 😁

    Looks a little chilly! While we’re known, for mostly mild winters compared to most of you guys up by the Canadian border, down here in Texas. We’ve already had record setting cold weather too and 25° Mornings.... I finally built a fire in the wood burner. REDDY 7041A7B3-F9D4-44E1-8210-D09476D0F786.MOV
  23. My SONDORS MXS arrived yesterday 11.19.19, the first ride was excellent! The MSX shifts very smooth, the hub motor is super quiet, and the updates to the wheel mounting and frame are outstanding, great job by SONDORS! It's the Little things that show attention to detail on the MXS, like the SONDORS logo Chainstay protector, the clips on the Seatstay, retaining the brake and shifter cables, and the plug in the top of the Head Tube Screw. This is also my first bike with 4 pot Hydraulic Disk Brakes, what a difference. After the first ride, I changed out the Maxxis 27.5 x 3.0 Knobby tires for SCHWALBE 27.5 x 2.8 all-terrain tires, and finished setting up the Console. Removing the rear tire, gives you a first hand look at the quality of the bike, and the improvements in the Rear Dropout. The color display is one of the first things you notice when riding, what a difference. Long Sleeves etc., a little cooler ride this morning, 11.20.19! I give the SONDORS MXS an A+, all the way around!
