    Tire Splitting/Separating

    I double checked bike path and even reviewed the ride video several times, and there was absolutely nothing could of cause this rupture. First and only time had ever happened to me, and it was loud. I did run it at 85 PSI for better high speed stability, but it is rated 100 PSI.

    Tire Splitting/Separating

    Happened to my Schwalbe Marathon tire as well. Luckily, it exploded at 10 MPH, not at 30 MPH.
  3. I know our Fold X7 will run at 46.2 V, but I'm not sure what is the official low voltage shutdown (if any.) We never tried to drain the battery that deep to find out. On my other 48V bike, I put 41V as the cutoff on the controller side.

    Buffy's Custom Fold

    That is true, and my kids do mention the very wide tube that houses the battery hitting their knees. The folding locking latch makes even wider on the right. For me, I am more aware of the design, and I think it okay for my riding.

    FoldX in Winter

    Not sure, as I've never ridden the larger fat bike to make a fair comparison. Common sense would tell me to pick the larger tire size if your priority is about snow traction. The Fold X has bigger battery and smaller dimension for smaller (like my 13 years old daughter) riders. It also "folds" for transport.

    FoldX in Winter

    I've tried our Fold X 7 out last winter, with about 8" of left over snow. I'd say it is better than skinny tired bikes, but I was not able ride through many part of the un-shoveled path. However, with the activation of the throttle, I was able to plow the bike through the snow with my legs dangling and balancing the bike.

    Fold X7 Chainring

    Looks like there might not be anyone has this Fold X modification. Meanwhile, I am studying the chainstay, and it appears to have some extra clearance for a larger chainring. I think I will add this modification as one of my winter projects.
  8. With the Chinese trade war ongoing, the newly imposed 25% tariff will affect the prices of electric bikes. I had already cancelled my Fold Z a few weeks back, as I didn't want to wait for the November delivery. For those are still awaiting for delivery, do you think Sondors will honor the purchased prices?
  9. What is the maximum chainring size that can be installed on the Fold X7 without hitting the chainstay? Anyone upgraded and has a favorite size? I counted the teeth, and the stock Fold X7 chainring comes with 44 teeth. I went out with my son for a ride today, and his borrowed (sister's) Fold X7 was not able to keep up with my 20" wheel mid-drive home build. He claimed he couldn't pedal faster. Surely enough, when I swapped my bike with his, I was only able to hit about 20 MPH top speed in 7th gear without using crazy cadence. Come to think of it, 20 MPH is fine, but I just want to slow down the cadence. I can't remember this for a fact, but I thought I was able to hit 26 MPH with throttle only when we first got the bike.

    chainring upgrade for fat x 7

    Sorry, notice you had Fat 7, not Fold X7. I will start a new post for my question.

    chainring upgrade for fat x 7

    Did you do the upgrade? What is the size of chainring you ended up using? Any limitation on the maximum size without hitting the chainstay?

  12. Sounds like batch variations. Hopefully, support will get back to you to resolve this. Meanwhile, the worse case scenario is to wire in new connectors, something like the Anderson Powerpole or the XT60.
  13. Hopefully you get it resolved. It sucks to have a new bike and not working properly.
  14. No idea about the error code, but I'd check the speed sensor first if you didn't get any speed reading. There should be a little magnet on the spoke, and that should be fairly close to the speed sensor for it to pick up signal.

    ebikes for kids

    My daughter is 13, and she is able to handle a Fold X 7.
