  1. Sondors Thin Grinding Noise

    Hey @SoThin, try looking thru this thread: https://sondorsforum.com/search/?&q=Thin Bottom bracket&sortby=relevancy Reddy
  2. Pedal stripped crank arm threads

    If a picture is worth a thousand words .....a video ....you do the math. PEDAL INSTALLATION AND REMOVAL This article will discuss the correct procedure for installing and removing bike pedals. Getting Started What Tools do I need? It is often necessary to remove pedals to pack a bike for shipment. It is also sometimes necessary to remove the pedals for replacement and to service the pedal bearings. It is important to remember that pedal threads are different from left side and right side. The right side pedal has a right-hand thread (removes counterclockwise, installs clockwise). The left side pedal has a left-hand thread (removes clockwise, installs counterclockwise). Many pedals are stamped “L” and “R” for left and right. Additionally, the thread will appear to slope up toward its tightening direction. Left hand threads slope up to the left, while right hand threads slope up to the right, as seen below. Left: left-hand threads on a left pedal. Right: right-hand threads on a right pedal. 3 Begin by identifying the right and left pedals. Look for “L” and “R” marking on axle or wrench flats. If no “L” and “R” marking are seen, use pedal thread direction to identify pedals. Left threaded pedals (threads sloping upward to the left) go to left crank. Right threaded pedals (threads sloping upward to the right) go to right crank. See image at top if in doubt. Heavily grease threads of both pedals. Using fingers on wrench flats, thread right side pedal into right crank. Use wrench to snug pedal. Position wrench on flats for good mechanical advantage. Hold wrench with one hand while holding opposite crank with other. (Pedal the bike backward to install both left and right.) Using opposite arm as second lever, tighten pedal. Repeat process for left pedal, but threading pedal counter-clockwise to install. Typical torque for pedal thread is about 360 inch-pounds. With a foot long wrench, that is about 30 pounds of effort. If pedal is difficult to thread into arm, or if the threads in the crank are damaged, there may be some repair possible by chasing them with a tap. For 9/16” x 20 tpi pedals, use tap set TAP-6. For 1/2” x 20 tpi pedals, use tap set TAP-3. Taps will align damaged threads, but will not restore metal that is simply removed. If no threads are left, have a professional mechanic install a pedal bushing kit. 4 Pedals bearing may be serviceable depending upon the manufacturer and model of pedal. Some pedals use adjustable cup type ball bearing system, and may be cleaned, greased, and adjusted. Service tools are proprietary to each brand. Some pedal models are not intended to be serviced, and are simply ridden until the pedal wears out. Pedal bearing service is typically best left to professional mechanics. Pedal bodies often are made with small screws and bolts. These screws hold together the cage and mounting plates. Occasionally check that these fasteners and the cleats on your riding shoes are tight. Additionally, lubricate the pivot points on clipless type pedal systems. Reddy
  3. Power options

    I can appreciate you desire to step outside the box but I'd advise you to stick to conventional eBike technology and our time proven battery options, espically with that kind of investment. Intergrating that option into the Sondors system is unrealistic. Here are a few battery options to upgrade or add to your existing power source that are much better options and nonproblematic. https://sierraebike.com/products/48v-20-3ah-triangle-lithium-battery https://electrobikeworld.com/t/sondors-e-bike https://lunacycle.com/sondors-upgrades/ i would also suggest reading some of the excelent articles and 18650 li ion primers here, at electricbike.com for understanding on the eBikes current requirements (not measured in mA). https://www.electricbike.com/introduction-lithium-18650-batteries/ I'm relatively sure that the time proven and offered options for power have not been superseded in the short term. We are all waiting for lithium Air batteties though. The best info on Sondors Battery tecnology and implementation, are contained right here on the Forum, even including inexpensive hover board Li Ion add on packs. Reddy .
  4. Power options

    Hey @Aaronjagger, Welcome to the Sondors Owner Forum....Glad you found us and enjoy your stay. You'll .have to proved more information and a link to the specific device to evaluate. Mostly power banks are designed for portable/mobile device power back up. I carry one in my panniers as emergency power for my phone's, iPad and GPS but integrating it into the Sondors power curcuit is not anything I can visualize or speak to without more info. Reddy
  5. AWD Sondors Original

    You can power both motors with a single battery but It will take two controllers and two throttles. The better upgrades is to sell your existing motor, battery and controller here in our marketplace thread or eBay and switch to the 750watt motor with associated higher voltage 48v or 52v battery & 35 amp controller. You'll have considerably better power/acceleration/torque and a higher top speed with enough power to ride up the highest paved road in Colorango, Mt. Evans. Reddy Reddy
  6. Sondors Fold Charger Not Working

    @Kevin Wong, You'll need to use a multimeter to check the no load output of the Chargers and the Voltage in the batteries to determine what the problem is. The Chargers should show an output of 54volts and the Batteries should show a min 39.5 volts to accept a charge. Youll also need to check that you have the correct charger for your Sondors. A lot of Sondors acessories seem to be miss labeled on their boxes. Reddy

  11. Wheel Nuts

    https://nutlock.co/products/nutlock-stealth-black-full-set?utm_source=fomo&utm_medium=notification probably a waste of money. Please read this thread. https://sondorsforum.com/topic/1774-how-to-know-sondors-thin-solid-axle-size/?tab=comments#comment-5584 Reddy
  12. "Picked Up", denotes a used or NOS original Fat. Or did you just have UPS deliver a New Version Sondors Fat? If it's actually an Original Fat, you'll have to convert to the 750watt Bafang Geared Hub motor to accept a 7 Speed Freewheel. Only the New Sonfors X uses the cassette. You'll need to refer to this thread if you want the 7 speed conversion parts. https://sondorsforum.com/topic/880-upgrade-750w-bafang-with-7-speed-upgrade/?tab=comments#comment-2788 it you want to retain the original Bafang 350watt Geared Hub Motor your limited to the 3 speed conversion. https://sondorsforum.com/topic/20-3-speed-conversion/?tab=comments#comment-85 but the first few pages are filled with unreliable and missinformation so skip to the latter for the better parts lists and instructions.

  13. Hello @aaronbooker and welcome to the Sondors Owners Forum. And Yes, almost any any accessory intended for a non motorized bicycle, will fit on any of our handle bars. Reddy
  14. Locks - Keep your Sondors safe!

    I have one other related recommendation,. I find the best way to insure security is where I park. At almost all my stops I find secure parking. I park amoung the warehoused tires inside the service department bays, at both my local Walmarts, either in the hall inside the building, next to the door window at my Gastrointerolgyst & Plastic Surgeon's and inside the waiting room at my GP's Office. I have now what has become my reserved parking spot, inside, at my grocer's. Inside at my Coffee Shop, on the town square, where I stop for a refreshing beverage. Most outlets and faculties are happy to accomidate me when I park in an out of the way spots and the need for security for such a Mobil and Expensive bike is evident. Lastly, if I'm unsure about secure parking, on an upcoming outing, I'll pack my cover in the Pannier and because all that peeks out is my fat tires it's unlikely anyone would try and lift the locked cover to nab what looks like a motorcycle.
