    Nice Shot! I like the balanced symmetry between the ocean and lower elevation against the vegetation on the bluff with the distant shoreline beyond. ‘Really a well composed image. Reddy
  2. The ceilings are void and ripe for storage. I have 4 bikes hanging from the ceiling in my studio with vinyl coated hooks made for bike storage and I placed cross bracing between the 2nd floor joists so the hooks, could screw into lumber in the correct spacing to hang bikes by the wheels. Lowe’s has various sizes of these hooks. I have 13 bikes and storage is a multiple faceted solution here at my house. They even hang inside the bay windows of my kitchen dining bay, because they are out of the way there. You might consider one of the various bike pulley hoists to hang your Step in either orientation, Folded or not. Search Amazon for various “bicycle storage solutions”. https://www.amazon.com/s?k=Bicycle+storage+solutions&ref=nb_sb_noss ‘This is a particular space saving ceiling solution if your jerk to press exercise form is up to it with the weight of the Fold. Vertical position that rotates to Parallel to the Horizontal Ceiling system. https://www.amazon.com/Zero-Gravity-Racks-Bike-Rack/dp/B0756NS1MC/ref=sr_1_30?dchild=1&keywords=Bicycle+storage+solutions&qid=1573268589&sr=8-30 REDDY
  3. if you would have read the whole thread you’d have discovered. Sondors water bottle holders A few of Sondors owners have inquired about the water bottle cages on my bike. This is a DIY set up using two 18x1 velcro straps and two water bottle cages. I used the straps to secure the water bottle cages to the end of the top tube, the bottom tube and the stem tube (he means Head Tube). Take care not to effect the stem and the steering. Of course you can buy the straps at Home Depot and the water bottle cages at any local bike shop. Start with one of the Velcro straps and wrap it around the top tube and bottom tube (in vertical direction). The first strap creates the base and prevents the metal bottle cages from scratching your frame. Then wrap the second strap around the stem and the opening between the top and bottom tubes and run it through the bottle cage frame to secure the bottle holders. For added protection, you can use two zip ties to better secure the cages in place and prevent them from shifting. Reddy
  4. Wendy at Aliexpress Pasion eBikes offers a kit that can be configured as Rear, Front and Horn that is plug and play. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/32761134632.html?spm=2114.12010612.8148356.2.739f58b1YkbXZw It might provide usable with higher voltage batteries but I wouldn’t recommend it. I don’t know of a powerful system that Includes a brake light function that’s plug and play. There might be one but I’ve not seen one reported on the forum. Member, Josh Wardell had created his own system with plans to offer it to Other Sondors Owners but his response on the forum didn’t warrant any further involvement. You can read his post here. https://sondorsforum.com/profile/1001-josh-wardell/content/ REDDY
  5. Well, fewer magnets would make a 60 Pound bike a few grams lighter, affording better acceleration (I’m not sure it could be measured though) but the extra magnets increase responsiveness and a smoother reaction to the motion of the crank. PAS is related to bike speed as controlled by the controller and your LCD will display the wattage being applied at the various levels, balanced with your physical effort, to arrive at the watts supplied to the motor. Those wattages being applied, to the various pas levels can be manipulated by users in programming the controller. . What is interesting is that the closer you pedal at the maximum speed allowed by the controller’s clipping setting, the less wattage will be delivered to maintain that speed, combined with your leg power. It’s kinda an Ecco function and the faster you can pedal to that limit the more efficient the bike is. REDDY
  6. I’ve replaced my original Fat’s, 8 magnet PAS assembly with one with 12 magnets but I’m considering a change to this fully enclosed 12 magnet version, https://boltonebikes.com/collections/electrical-accessories/products/single-piece-pedal-assist-pas-sensor to upgrade my Custom Sondors “Narrow”, now named the Electric White Lightning, when I switch to the 750watt Bafang that I’ll purchase On 11/11 from Aliexpress during their, site wide holiday sale, ‘Singles Day’! I buy another one every year. REDDY
  7. Robert Heinlein would be proud because we shared Grok . REDDY
  8. You have an incompatibility issue. Your new controller is not compatible with your existing LCD. Contact the supplier of the controller. REDDY
  9. Neither, go to Bolton, best fat suspension fork for the money. https://boltonebikes.com/collections/frames-and-parts/products/fat-bike-suspension-fork REDDY
  10. Check with Bolton. Best suspension fork for the moola. https://boltonebikes.com/collections/frames-and-parts/products/fat-bike-suspension-fork REDDY
  11. Check to make sure the Thermostockel is contacting the rederstrator. Might just be a loose connection. Reddy
  12. We’ve seen that issue here before and on disassemble it was found the the motor was full of rust from water incursion. Really not a Sondors Company Warranty Issue, if that’s the cause or if the bike is out of the warranty period . Another scenario would be a loose motor magnet which is explained in a post here on the forum/. REDDY

  14. The reason they don’t supply instruction manuals (which are available here) is for manufactures product liability. Sondors Manufacturing could be held responsible for accidents and injury by a sympathetic jury when someone used the info in a Sondors supplied manual to upgrade the performance of their Sondors to an illegal state as limited by state or federal law and they got injured as a result of of those changes. Reddy
  15. Tire manufacturing figures can be misleading but you wont find any discernible differences in somewhat similar tire sizes. Some higher numbers will result in actually smaller tires than those with slightly lower numbers. More important than slight differences in claimed size is what kind of performance you expect out of your tires. My favorite tires for my Electric Black Lightning are Vee Tire Co, Mission Command II’s and they’re published size is 4.7” but they are taller and wider than the Stock Sondors 4.9" Chaoyang tires. In the lower thread count version they are a little more robust and in the higher thread count versions, more supple. They wear faster than the Chaoyang’s with softer, sticker rubber and I like them best when the center section is almost completely worn away to almost a slick. They then corner like a Moto GP tire. I ride mostly very clean smooth pavement @ 20+ Mph / 32+ Kph. I’ve been thru 3 rears and one front in 13,000 miles / 20,900 Kilometers. Your riding style and habits are a consideration in your choice. ‘For Durability I like the Chaoyangs although they are noisy which translates in to higher rolling resistance. REDDY
