  1. September Shipments in USA?

    Oh hey, thanks for the tip! I'll do that.

    Thanks! The charcoal gray with blue rims is one of the two paint choices. The other choice is silver frame with silver rims.
  3. September Shipments in USA?

    Thanks, Dave! After installing the LCD on the X and going into the settings, I found that the wheel size was already set to 29"! So much for the sticker on the LCD box that reads "Sondors Fold X LCD". I guess the takeaway is that when you receive your LCD, be sure to verify all of the settings. I changed C1 from 02 to 01 (normal pedal start sensitivity), C4 from 0 to 3 (to enable throttle at PAS 0), C5 from 00 to 06 (probably bump that to 10 after a while), C6 from 3 to 5 (like my LCD bright), and C7 from 0 to 1 (enable cruise control). Now having the LCD, it feels more to me like my Sondors has arrived! Huge difference in performance and I can monitor battery state! Here's what she looks like now with the LCD, Ibera rack, PDW splash guards, and L&M Urban 500 Commuter Combo front and rear lights. Just need to change out the saddle for one of my others (probably the Brooks).

    Hi, Thanks for that. However, I'm still hoping that the Sondors X LCD and Fold X LCD are just configured differently. I can see the Fold LCD and Fold X LCD being incompatible since the Fold has a 36V battery and the Fold X a 48V battery. But my Sondors X also has a 48V battery so I'm hoping the Fold X 48V LCD will work with just change to settings like wheel size. Perhaps I'll run that past customer service. Festivus for the rest of us!

    I got the same message. I've been waiting for the LCD for the Sondors X I received a couple of weeks ago and a Sondors Fold X w/LCD. Then 30 minutes ago, UPS shows up with a small box from Sondors. Inside is an LCD but it's labelled "Sondors Fold X LCD"! So, is the Fold X LCD the same as the Sondors X LCD just with different programming? I'd like to use it on my X since I won't have the Fold X for another couple of weeks.

    Anyone received a ship notice from Sondors for their missing LCDs yet? They indicated that those would start coming out early this week..

    Oh, I did forget to say in my previous post that the Sondors X I received is absolutely awesome. There was zero damage. The bike was packed really really well and everything went together perfectly. I only had to bend the derailleur guard out a smidge so that I could get the adjustment done for 7th gear. These Sondors products are very well thought out and are serious bargains. I have no doubt that if Sondors did advertise more widely, there would be a regular crush of orders. Thus my concern about production capability.
  8. Sondors stockholder

    I had pretty much made up my mind to buy shares. However, it now seems to me that expanding their sales and marketing is premature if they can't get order fulfillment in better shape. They seem to be having trouble with production and shipping at their current level of sales which is just based on word of mouth. If they start advertising, how will they expand production to meet a potentially much larger demand? I ordered a Sondors X with LCD on July 4th. It was part of the September batch. The Sondors X arrived on September 27th which met my expectations. However, the LCD for it was apparently in the back of the shipment so it's delayed until next week. I would think that this should have been foreseeable. Either Sondors should have specified that the LCDs be loaded so that they would be available out of the shipment before the bikes (so they could be paired up as ordered) or Sondors did specify that buy their producer/shipper in China is not fully under control. I also ordered a Sondors Fold X with LCD on July 5th. It was part of the September batch also. However, Sondors now says that due to higher than anticipated demand, it would be shipped to me until late October. I don't even know what that means. On this forum there was a post that an unknown number of Folds in the September shipment were damaged by the US shipper stacking too many Fold boxes on top of each other damaging front forks. Don't know if this fully explains the one month delay. I would have been eager to buy stock in Sondors if their production/fulfillment was running like a well oiled machine and was starving for more demand that a sales/marketing organization could provide. My $0.02
  9. Thanks, Andi. I had that same chat with Paul but after that I got the Sondors email that indicated that the LCD was part of the same shipment. So then I got nervous. I'll be patient now that I know I'm in the same boat with everyone else.
  10. I ordered my Sondors X on July 4th and received it on Sept 26th. Sondors email shows delivered and states that the LCD is part of the shipment. I've left a couple of inquiries at their support email but haven't gotten any responses (other then the automated ones). They have charged me for both the Sondors X and the LCD. Has anyone talked to an actual Sondors employee about the missing LCD's? I'd sure like mine!
  11. September Shipments in USA?

    Ordered the Light & Motion Urban 500 Commuter Combo Bike Light Kit from Amazon a few days ago but delivery isn't until between Oct 2 - Oct 10. You're right though..dropped the ball on that one! Fortunately, the battery suddenly reached full-charged with lots of daylight and I went tearing out of here and up and down a few steep little walls on the main road about a mile from the house. Back grinning like a Marine you know where! So fun it seems like it should be illegal!
  12. Sondors new x fat bike

    Here you go. This is a Sondors X from the September batch.
  13. September Shipments in USA?

    Thanks, 1to1IT. Know how you're feeling having waited now since July 4th. The folks who ordered from the first batch waited over 6 months I think. Now just the wait for the battery to finish charging is driving me crazy! Hope it finishes before dark!
  14. September Shipments in USA?

    Now if the battery would just finish charging already!
  15. September Shipments in USA?

    My Sondors X is out for delivery now! Usually that means around 2PM for me. Will be watching my driveway cam closely today!
