    Fold X: Body in White!

    Mike, Don’t forget to add pictures of your Adventures on your Fold, in our Gallery Section. Owners pictures kinda get lost in the day to day posts, especially with all the Facebook member picture updates that clutter our forum, but the Gallery is a great collection and repository for our pictures. Happy Holidays Reddy!

    Fold X: Body in White!

    Handsome Fold! Mike, I got my Triple Open Water Scuba Certifications with NAUI, PADI & YMCA, because of watching you on Sea Hunt when I was a kid. )) Reddy
  4. Actually that Sondors has the original suspension fork and it looks like the aluminum frame which adds at least $200 bucks to the initial purchase price. About $894.00 it also has a nice rack and fenders. Ask me how I know? Happy Holidays REDDY
  5. Adam, 1) not common unless it’s ridden in the surf or continually left out in the rain. 2) I’d suspect that could be the case. 3) motors are pretty economical at less than $200. I just purchased a 750watt upgrade motor $171.00 on 11/11 sale day in China. Exact replacment 350watt motors are avalable there for about $130.00 I’d guess, haven’t checked. 4) Yes, but the value of this bike is in its value to upgrade and replace everything you see removed from the Triangle battery box and the motor. Upgrade to the 750watt motor (who’s innards could be swapped, easy easy, with the dammaged 350watt innards, into the existing bare case) a new, 35amp controller(the existing lunacycle controller might be salvagble) and LCD combo and an upgraded battery 52v . Approximate cost upgrades $700-$800. You’d end up with the equivalent to a $1,600 to $2,000 eBike. 5) If it was in my local area, I’d already have snatched it up. But my advise to you would buy a new SondorsX7. Happy Holidays Reddy

    Understanding Parts Compatibility for your SONDORS eBike

    George- X, there were no Sondors X in 2016. The compatibility of LCD screens is now a complicated issue with individual protocols for different models. The easiest and best solution is to buy both; an aftermarket LCD, and new, better, more powerful controller for less than the price of the Sondors Color LCD. The new Bolton Color LCD 8H & their 25 amp controller are the pinicle of easy upgrades and take you to the next level of performance for less moola. https://boltonebikes.com/products/kt-lcd8h-new-color-display-preorder https://boltonebikes.com/products/copy-of-36v-48v-motor-controllers-free-shipping?variant=44308850179 https://youtu.be/B0F6x8V0NZQ MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK!

    WTB: Thin motor

    Might just be the planetary gear cluster. Putting the 350W thru that kind of abuse for that long a term, that’s what I’d check first.

    sonders thin power will not stay on

    My own Sondors, (now the Electric Black Lightning) that was one of othe Original Indiegogo bikes bought in Feb. 2015 has had an intermittent power button on the throttle since new. It now only has one LED that lights also. I find that I have to press and rock the power button slightly, from side to side or up and down to get the LED to stay lit, and the power on. Been doing this for years. If that does not help your throttle quadrant to power on, you can unclip the top of your throttle carefully and spray some electrical contact cleaner, sparingly, on the power button inside the housing. That will clean and lubricate the switch. If it still does not power on correctly you can buy a replacement. Sondors does not currently stock replacment throttles for the Single Speed Thin. If you have the LCD installed, these replacment 6 pin throttle, without a power button will allow you to forego the throttle button and power on, at the LCD. https://boltonebikes.com/collections/sondors-ebike-power-upgrades/products/throttles https://a3ee3610-0553-11e5-8794-f04da2069d31.onlinestore.godaddy.com/products/thumb-throttle-sondors-6-pin-higo-plug fron Aliexpress https://www.aliexpress.com/store/product/Sondors-eBike-Thumb-Throttle-36V-48V-72V-Speed-Throttle-Pasion-e-bike-Electric-Bicycle-Parts/1088910_32748520967.html?spm=2114.12010612.8148356.16.50e87348aa7uqK I do not know if there is a direct replacement avalable anymore, but if you’d care to splice in your existing Higo connector off your existing throttle, this is the same throttle sans connector. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Wuxing-36V-48V-Bicycle-E-Bike-Thumb-Throttle-With-ON-OFF-Switch-With-Battery-Indicator-Electric/32908958082.html?spm=2114.search0104.3.67.6d8f1a23UJRxQQ&ws_ab_test=searchweb0_0,searchweb201602_1_10065_10068_10130_10890_10547_10546_319_5734911_10548_317_5730311_10545_10696_10924_453_10084_454_10083_5729211_10618_10920_10921_10922_10307_537_536_5735011_10059_10884_5735111_10887_10928_100031_321_322_10103_5735211,searchweb201603_51,ppcSwitch_0&algo_expid=4fb81d5e-f107-45aa-933a-d67a6f778535-8&algo_pvid=4fb81d5e-f107-45aa-933a-d67a6f778535 Reddy

    New color LCD screen for SONDORS XS

    This should be the info you need, all contained under the “Instructions”section of this forum. https://sondorsforum.com/topic/2051-2018-sondors-ebike-kd51c-lcd-setup-manual/ Or https://sondorsforum.com/topic/241-kt-lcd3-user-manual-sondors-ebike/ Reddy
  10. @Sunnie, Needless to say, my Collies haven’t been riding since I sold the Jetta TDI last year and lil Scarlett’s only ride was to our home, from the breeder in Magnolia Texas, when I picked her up.. That’s one of the reasons for the new trailer. I’m a member of the Texas Sheep & Cattle Dog Association and get my Collies from breeders who trial & ranch livestock and keep the herding instincts viable . Now before you think that there are plenty of adoptable rescues out there, I do volunteer with an agency and spend 4 hours most summer weekend days, outside, in front of a Pet Smart, “Slinging Puppies”, how we refer to placing rescues with new families. Most of Marty’s rescues are little dogs, like yours and it’s a pretty satisfying return for my involvement. I also help place Collies by finding flying options for adoptable Border Collies, thru my Aviation groups. This was Baby Fly’s announcement photo. My Electric Black Lightning is being relegated into the Heavy Hauler and my new Fat build will be my Sport Model or Runabout. Kinda the same as your Electra Cruiser & Fold X. I have considered adding a compact sidecar to one of my bikes to carry the Collies but a larger two wheel trailer makes more sense to carry both. We are pretty retro here, because of our Lakeside 100 year old Cabin in an Oak Forest and the only inhabitance prior to my cabin being moved here, were Clovis Indians. The peninsula out in front of my house is named Arrow Head Point, because of the artifacts that are found here. Be sure and share your photos in the Forum Gallery and your biking adventures here too. https://youtu.be/vucKFAmSORo One Collie explores, one sleeps in. https://youtu.be/_EpbEd0vKhA Reddy

    Help with Battery Choice Upgrade for SONDORS X

    Leonard, UNITPACKPOWER and the bargain basement priced packs they offer and the YouTube poster that act as their advertiser are well known but the quality of electrical current delivery, as it relates to performance, differs within the individual cell choices and those cells are not specified for a reason and may not be evident or familiar to the person making the query regardless of any disclaimer. If posters had that knowledge they wouldn’t come for advise. A lot of buyers are lured into purchases by the bargain prices and because they lack in-depth knowledge of individual cell capacities and chemistries, they come to the forum for advise. They are at a disadvantage & vulnerable to advertising hype and strategies. A lot of owners have made purchasing mistakes dealing with Aliexpress. That’s why we have our Favored Sondors Aftermarket Suppliers. They specify what’s offered and are focused on Sondors upgrades. When a forum member asks for advise on an upgrade from a 48V 14Ah Sondors pack, that already contains QUALITY 18650GA High Power + Long Range cells and asks if an upgrade to 52v is viable and can produce a noticeable difference, the optimal concept here is, “Is The Upgrade Worth the Investment”. If you compare similar cells but in a higher pack voltage and higher Ah rating, yep, that’s definitely an advantage and noticeably more torque and hill climbing performance. Not a worthwhile difference enough to warrant the cost though, if inferior cells are recommended, that actually deliver less performance than the Stock Sondors pack. Happy Holidays Reddy
  12. Sunnie, I think your injuries are a lot more serious than my procedure and although it hurts to sit-up or get up using my stomach muscles, the only discomfort on the bike, is getting my leg, up and over, and off the bike. Riding, I didn’t hurt or risk injury at all. My incision is superglued and stitched. )) I’m 20 miles, round trip from the closest town, shopping and my P O Box (no mailbox at my house) and half of my route is on a Rail Trail Path, adjacent to a commuter rail line. I’m very remote but just a stones throw (30 miles) from the DFW Metrostool and can take my bikes on the train to extend my range to cover all of the vast Metroplex. Love that you included pics of the Dogs. You know what’s the problem with Dogs? Like potato chips .... one is never enough. Because I’m environmentally committed, I sold my car on November 27th 2017. I wanted to see if I could go a year without one. Well, now I’m thinking I’ll try one more winter before buying a Toyota Prius. Here’s my latest project addition to the Electric Black Lightning that’s taking some custom attachment fabrication. The yoke on the trailer is too short for the dropouts on the bike so I’m fabricating extensions. This is Fly my Boy and little Scarlett, the Red Border Collie who is 6 mo. My goal in life is to become more Border Collie. Reddy
  13. Wow, that’s terrible and thank goodness you’ll be alright. I can sympathize because my midsection is kinda traumatized. Tuesday I has an Umbilical Hernia Repaired (but yesterday I was able to ride 29.3 mi, to pickup my pain meds at the pharmacy). I’ve been referring to the procedure as a Masculine Cesarian Section. It’s the opposite bookend to when I birthed, My Boy Stoney, my Kidney Stone. Here’s to your fast recovery and back on your Sondors. I’m convinced that I’m much healthier because of mine and no longer plagued with Type 2 Diabetes, because of my mileage and the help of a Ketogenic Diet. You wont be sorry about the upgrades and Merry T-Day to Y’all. My Boy Stoney .pdf Reddy
  14. Oh No! What happened to your Vespa? I’ve always admired Stings GS, since watching the movie Quadraphenia. i haven’t bought the Color Display yet but I’m considering it for my new 750watt Fat build but the 25 amp controller is a must. The difference in acceleration / torque and slight top end have been described as, “Running Like a Scalded Cat”. And the controller upgrades are the first enhancements that most owners do across the Sondors model spectrum. https://youtu.be/B0F6x8V0NZQ Reddy
