  1. Will post some info on the Mach2 when I get it in-hand. Unfortunately, I expect it to be months before the ship mine as I'm about halfway down the current queue.
  2. You'll need a Shimano freewheel tool. I just bought one of these to change out the freewheel on my MXS: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B01FI8WWZY The replacement: https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B07XYPH5BG
  3. I made a big mistake on my initial bike rack purchase and bought a steel dual motorcycle carrier. That rack weights around 100 pounds and by itself is about all my 2020 Hyundai Tuscon should have on the hitch. So I bought one of the Harbor Freight single aluminum motorcycle racks. While you can't use the pin to capture the rear wheel as the Sondors isn't long enough, it works very well with a few tie down ratchet straps. Spend the extra few dollars and pickup some soft straps too. Being the epitome of lazy, I don't like fiddling with the straps. So I spent the big bucks and ordered a Mach2 rack a couple of months ago. I expect it'll still be a several more months before it arrives. https://quikrstuff.com/product/mach2-single-rack-2-hitch/ The Harbor Freight works and including the straps is considerably less than 1/3 the cost.
  4. I ended up going a different route and bought one of these a couple of months ago (Jun 10, 2021): https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B07ZFQJQRV/
  5. One person that ordered a Rockstar stated he was informed by Sondors that his bike was ready, but that because of shipping delays it would be at least another month (August to September) before it arrives. Given what I read about shipping from China and delays delivering here in the USA, I'm not optimistic that my LX scheduled for September delivery will even make it here this year.
  6. Reddy, Doesn't the Fold use a generic 2 amp charger like this? https://smile.amazon.com/dp/B083BNQYWG/
  7. Hate listening to this guy. But to see the alarm functioning, skip to about 8 minutes in the video.
  8. That would be dependent on your local laws. For instance, here in Tennessee, the law specifically requires a white front light: Reference: https://www.tn.gov/tdot/multimodal-transportation-resources/bicycle-and-pedestrian-program/resources11/tennesse-bicycle-laws.html California has the same requirement: Reference: https://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=VEH&sectionNum=21201.
  9. Fenders, rack, bag ...and a spare battery for me. I've been checking the Sondors website regularly and they haven't been available to order.
  10. On another forum a user posted that he just got an email from Sondors stating that his Rockstar is ready, but has been delayed another month due to container shipping delays. It's good to see Sondors being upfront about delays. Personally, I'll give a business that states to expect an extended delay a lot more latitude than a company that keeps saying "it's only a few days away" (over and over) or simply fails to communicate at all.
  11. Thanks for letting us know you found the info in the wiring diagram. Saved me from trying to research it. Before ordering, shop around a bit. You might be able to find complete levers with cutoff switches already installed that will work with your hydraulic brakes.
  12. Glad to be of assistance. You stated that you no longer have a motor kill switch since upgrading to hydraulic brakes. Are you planning on retrofitting the brakes with cut-off switches? Something like : https://ebikes.ca/product-info/grin-products/tripwire.html
  13. Does your controller have a pair of blue wires (cruise wire) with a "loop connector" attached? If it has the looped blue wire, then cruise is set in "auto mode". The C7 parameter only works if the loop is not connected.
  14. Since it's not close to the ship date, I haven't inquired. Unless it hits October without a shipping notice, I probably won't ask. As they say, "A watched pot never boils". But I'm going to need a new set of thumbs from twiddling these waiting for the LX to arrive.
  15. Hey Glenn, If you are going to post your bike for sale, a location (at least city and state) would be extremely helpful. If you were local to me (Middle Tennessee), I'd be interested in buying it as a project bike.
