    Hi David That is so cool, I am still waiting for mine, It is sent out on Jan 18th heading north. I was looking forward to riding in the snow, but we don't have any. It is very dry up here. I hope you are having an awesome time riding. Ronnie...….🙂

    Hi all, Just bought a little used Sondors, pictured below here in Phoenix. Thanks to info found in this forum, I'm in the process of upgrading it to a road machine equipped with 750W motor, 7-speeds (21-speeds eventually?), 52V and Maxxis Hookworm tires. Thanks to all those who post the great 'how-to' articles. Martin In the far northwest of the Valley of the Sun

    Wow are these ever fun. We are in San Diego and have ridden around Fiesta Island several times and recently rode to Seaport Village. No headwind problems with these bikes. My wife is onlky 5'1" so her legs pump pretty high when her seat is adjusted to just balancing on her toes. We traded out the seats for a Gel seat that allows more rear placement of the seat so you don't feel like you are going to slide off the back. Has anyone changed out the fron sprocket so when you are on high level and gear 7 you don't spin wildly? Now we want to get lights so we can ride at night. We can fold these up and carry them in the back of our Ford Flex. We are driving to our daughters house in San Rafael for Xmas and will be riding on those great fire trail roads.

    John, there are plenty of post on Fold modifications here on the forum. Just use the search function that is top right, in the header and search Fold. Don't forget to add pictures of your adventures to the “Gallery”. Pictures in the open forum kinda get lost unless they’re in the album dedicated to them. Ride On ! Happy Holidays REDDY

    Mel, the 7 speed cassette Sondors X model comes with a different, slightly wider motor. The conversion, requires that a different motor and associated shifter hardware, while spreading the rear triangle a mere 5mm. Both models of the 2018 Fat were avalable at the same time, not early or late 18. The 7 speed motor has a longer threaded and 5mm wider case to accommodate the larger Freewheel or Cassette, depending on motor model. Avalable from Aliexpress : https://eunorauebike.aliexpress.com/store/group/BAFANG/904105_257734884.html?spm=a2g1y.12024536.pcShopHead_6161773.1_3_1 i just purchased a new 750watt motor there for a new project for $173. Or, when in stock, you can buy the 750watt motor Domestic from : https://velomobileshop.com/collections/sondors-ebike-power-upgrades/products/bafang-fat-bike-hub-motor?variant=12249194725399 “175mm Dropout Hub Motor. Although slightly wider than the stock single speed Sondors bikes, this will drop into the existing case. Upgrade your motor without swapping the wheel! 750 watt motors USE A LARGER MOTOR PLUG! Larger controller with the appropriate plug required. Threaded for single or multi-speed freewheel.“ Or: https://electrobikeworld.com/products/48v-750w-bafang-geared-rear-hub-motor If you want to see what the process entails, most of the process, less the 750WATT upgrade parts, higher output battery, aftermarket controller and LCD. (you’ll need a new 350Watt, or better, 500 Watt longer cassette/freewheel mount motor, since you’ve already upgraded to a 25amp controller, for the upgrade less the 750watt & required 35amp controller. https://sondorsforum.com/topic/880-upgrade-750w-bafang-with-7-speed-upgrade/ I suspect you’ve already reviewed the 3 speed thread. Most of the early posts in that thread are bogus, conjecture or just guessing so start your planning with Scott Kennedy’s post here and beyond. https://sondorsforum.com/topic/20-3-speed-conversion/?do=findComment&comment=899 Reddy

    Have you depressed the button on the front of the throttle? Is the cap on the end of the throttle to LCD cable? Required to ride without the LCD connected.

    Below are pics of accessories I've added to my Fold X. Was striving for a "clean", urban look. I replaced the knobby tires with street tires. For my carrier, I left off the side pannier braces. Below the pictures you'll find some after thoughts and lessons learned. And further down, you’ll find descriptions, links and prices for each product. FENDERS For the fenders, I debated getting the Luna Cycle Banana Fenders as well as the Electra Cruiser Stubby Fender Set. They're very cool looking as I love that black matte finish on both. The Electra set are only designed for Tires with a width of 2.12" and I prefer shorter fenders anyway. Note my RadRover rear fender attaches to the seat post. The amount of clearance is adjustable in two places other than the seat post. LIGHTS I get lots of comments on the bike. Many comments stem from the vintage front headlight. With that said, this Goodkssop headlight has more fashion than functional value. At 180 lumens, it'll warn on comers that you’re there. But you shouldn’t expect it to light your way in dark surroundings. BIKE RACK & TRUNK The positioning of the Yahill rack is adjustable and allows the trunk to rest comfortably on top. The M-Wave lockable trunk is convenient for times you can’t take all your belongings with you. For gym rats, it's big enough to hold a gym shirt, shorts and a pair of men's size 12/13 shoes. For the trunk you'll need a rack that's flat at least at one end....ones like the Ibera PakRaks won't work since they are bend at the front and rear. My biggest challenge was finding a way to secure the two because the trunk doesn’t offer an immediately obvious way to mount it on the rack. So you’ll have to cleverly devise your own way...industrial velcro, zip ties or other hardware. Should you decide to go with a storage solution like mine, consider using drilling a few holes in the underside and using small u-bolts to secure the trunk to the rack. I added half-inch of adhesive foam to bottom of the trunk to soften noise of objects bouncing around. SEATPOST Of all the accessories, the CaneCreek Thudbuster is definitely my favorite. Fat tires help smooth out minor road imperfections. However, there are times when I appreciate the extra cushion. Realize the Thudbuster will add about 4 to 5 inches to the overall height of your seat. And I’m already losing about three inches from the bike carrier and rear fender which both attach to the seat post. I’m 5’ 9” or 175 cm and it’s a slight stretch to mount the Fold. REFLECTIVE DECALS I’m all about making myself visible to other motorists. That’s mainly why I chose the red model. But I also like to make sure I’m seen, particularly at night. So I added red reflective tape to the rims for more side visibility. I affixed black decals for more rear visibility should my tail light give out. Virtually invisible by day the decals light up brilliantly at night when car lights approach. If you look closely at the trunk see if you can find the two triangles and the four lines. TIRES Although the pictures might suggest I live in a rustic environment, I live in an urban setting. So I replaced the knobby off-road tires with more "street" looking Kenda tires. The Kenda tires don't have much of a groove down the middle of the tire. So it would seem rather easy to lose traction… hasn't been much of a problem yet. I bought the tires on eBay and am not sure they're still available. However, if I were to do it over again, I'd get the Duro tires that have a similar look. In case someone might be looking for knobby replacements, I've added the Copertone and Mongoose tires. Goodkssop 180 Vintage Headlight ($14) Okiano USB Rechargeable Bike Light Set ($23) RadRover Standard Front & Rear Fenders ($59) Cane Creek 3G Thudbuster Long Travel 30.9 Seatpost ($149) Yahill Adjustable Quick Release Bike Rack ($39) M-Wave Lockable Hard Shell Bike Trunk ($51) Seattle Sports 1/2" Foam Trunk Insert - 20” x 15” ($18) CustomTAYLOR33 Reflective Rim Tape ($34) LiteMark Reflective Decal Variety Pack ($11) Kenda 20” x 4.25” Ringworm Tires ($31) Duro 20” x 4.25” Super Fatt Tires ($29)* Copertone BICI 20" x 4.0 Sandstorm ($28)* Mongoose 20" x 4.0 MG78456-2 Fat Tire ($24)* *I have the Kenda Ringworm tires. Products with asterisks represent other replacement tires. Also note the Copertone and Mongoose tires are 4.0” wide. I've been told they’ll fit on the Fold just fine. But you might want to double-check before buying.

    Hello @Matt Willett and welcome to the owners forum. We're glad you found us and enjoy your stay. The Sondors upgrade won't offer you any better performance rather than increasing distance. The slight increase in Torque and Acceleration won't be noticeable without having the LCD display. There are three main Sondors aftermarket support online retailers. All three have battery upgrades for your bike. But to really extend the performance you'll need to buy a more powerful controller, either 20amp or 25amp and the aftermarket LCD to utilize the full potential of your present battery or an aftermarket more powerful battery. These are the Vendors: https://lunacycle.com/sondors-upgrades/ https://velomobileshop.com/collections https://electrobikeworld.com/t/sondors-e-bike please review the wealth of topics and info in this forum.

    Hello @Brandnew / Gary, and welcome to the Sondors Owners Forum, enjoy your stay while you review all the information on the site. The levels/gears they are referring to, in that instance, are levels of Pedal Assist, not really gears. Some of the nomenclature used on the Sondors Site was placed there by spider monkeys. The LCD will show speed, average speed, maximum speed, distance, trip distance in either Kilometers or Miles, your choice. You can also control the Torque and wattage sent to the motor from every PAS level. Familiarize yourself with the setting and functions here:
