    No power to throttle

    No Self Abuse Please .....everyone misses one of the redundant switches now and again. That’s exactly why the newer models don’t have that switch. Yippie Tie Yi Yo & Giddy-Up REDDY
  3. Yes @Marco Lam, that’s the newer version of the Thin, that eliminates the redundancy of the throttle power button. Reddy

    No power to throttle

    Scott, there are three failure points to check between the fully charged battery and the throttle. First, sometimes the battery is not fully seated in the cradle, make sure it snaps in and locks. Also look at th contact points in the cradle and battery base. Look for deformation or melted plastic, on either. Josh Wardel reported an separated power wire in either the cradle base or battery at those contact points. Next is the battery on/off rocker. I know, I know, but this is the most common issue with no power and it is possible the the rocker has become intermittent. Third is the throttle power button. They are sometimes stubborn. My own has problems turning on and I might have to manipulate the button by not only pressing it but moving it up and down or side to side while pressing. You can also make sure the higo connector between the controller and throtthe is securely plugged together, making sure not to rotate the connectors and insure positive alignment of the pins. If all those appear to be connected properly you can look inside the throttle ( top pops off) fir anything amiss like disconnected wires. if all that checks out, you’ll need to trace the power from the battery cradle output wires to the controller with a multimeter. Every electric bike owner needs one to check Circuits. You can use the probes to pierce the wires insulation to check for voltage. LEMMENO! Reddy

    inseam height of x and fold x

    Hey @Johnb , I couldn’t find the stand over height for the Fold’s but it’s pretty close to 3” less than the Sondors X. The smaller rims and tires, on the Fold accomplish the 3” but depending on where you actually straddle the top tube will make slight differences for individuals. The Folds’ have pretty horizontal top tubes while the Sondors X, declines the closer you get to the seat tube. This image illustrates the differences. If the Folds height would still be an issue, smaller tires could lower if further to the perfect height. While I love the Fat Bikes (espically the Sondors extra tall height and high bottom bracket) high stance, as you can still pedal and accelerate out of corners, it will make you brush up on your track-stand skills at stop signs to keep from dismounting and puttin a foot down.

    New bike, no charge.

    Yes, contact Sondors on their web site during West Coast Business Hours M-F, using the chat button and follow up your request for help by filling out the Customer Support request form. Those are the fastest and best ways to get immediate attention, following up with a written request. Reddy

    New bike, no charge.

    Howdy @Grant Cook, The most probable cause is incorrect charging procedure. You must follow the procedure in this video. Only plugging the charger into the wall outlet after turning off the rocker switch, on the battery and connecting the charger to the battery. LEMMENO Reddy

    May 2018 delivery status

    Hello @Ralf Honsberg and welcome to the forum. Unfortunately this is pretty normal behavior for Sondors.com and their Support Staff is very limited until new deliveries reach a maxamin crescendo of activity. Rest assured your Folds are being custom manufactured to your specifications and will soon be delivered. We all have gone thru the same waiting period . Reddy

    Looking to upgrade and looking for advice

    Reposition your controller(probably) and change power leads. There is more than ample room in the Original’s Battery Box. Reddy
