  1. You're welcome Cross-Up. The problem is that Sondors still lists "Tektro hydraulic Disc Brakes" on the Rockstar specs page.
  2. According to Arda from Ariel Rider, if you ordered brakes (video made in mid 2021), Tektro wouldn't be delivering them until 2024. Watch this portion of the interview until around 13:14:
  3. Eric, You don't need a high end multi-meter for this troubleshooting. Amazon or Walmart have them for around $12: https://smile.amazon.com/AstroAI-Digital-Multimeter-Voltage-Tester/dp/B01ISAMUA6/ https://www.walmart.com/ip/Stalwart-Digital-Multimeter-Tester-Volt-Amp-Ohm-Frequency/55485898 If you are going to own an ebike and troubleshoot it yourself, it's a good investment.
  4. Note how long it takes the thief to rip open the lock (by hand):
  5. It's not cheap, but I have a Park PRS-25 that I've used with my Sondors LX (89 pounds) that has worked well so far. The other thing I use is a handlebar jack for on the road repairs: https://www.handlebarjack.com/
  6. I considered placing an order, but the Sondors electric car being vaporware left me very skeptical of the Metacycle.
  7. I don't have a folding bike, but I've read where others have used a plastic tote to enclose a folding bike. You'd have to shop around to find one that fits.
  8. Nice bike josap. I have a set of Sondors fenders on order, but am afraid the rear fender may interfere with the Mach2 rack. What fenders do you have on your LX?
  9. No idea what-so-ever if the BBSO programming will work on a Sondors mid-drive. It's very possible that the current Sondors mid-drives are using the new m620 CANBUS motors (rather than UART) which means a whole new system of programming will need to be developed or purchased to reprogram the motors. Since Sondors is using a custom firmware, the old Bafang software / cable harness may not work either. I'll need to find out if my LX is UART as I want to eventually put an Archon X1 Controller in the motor. That will have to wait until Watt Wagons gets the light issue resolved.
  10. Brenda, I would follow up with Sondors to check the status of your bike. Mine was ordered in May and just arrived. It should be noted in the first shipments, the Artic (white) LX bikes were the first to arrive in the USA and a shipment of Aventador (blue) arrived later. I'm not sure if Sondors is still receiving them in color batches.
  11. The LX (finally) arrived today. It's put together, but it's already dark and no spare time to ride for a day or so. <grumble> It now has one whole mile on it.
  12. Correct. The LX uses the Bafang Ultra m620. I'm pretty sure that Sondors detunes the motor to keep users (that don't know how to correctly use a mid-drive) from damaging the drive train.
  13. The only change that I am aware of is modifying the speed setting to a max of 35 MPH.
  14. I can't answer for sure, but the bike I ordered back in May of this year, matches the (in depth) specs of a review from June of 2020. The only hesitation I'd have is the bike wouldn't be under warranty since you are not the "original purchaser". https://shop.sondors.com/pages/sondors-warranty If I could inspect the bike for damage and got a good deal, personally I'd buy it.
  15. Rich, I believe the error code 30 is a communications error. It's most commonly between the display and the controller. Be sure that you check for bent pins on all of the connections. It could also be a bad controller. You'll likely need to contact Sondor's and put in a support ticket: https://sondors.com/support/ticket/
  16. Will post once I get the Mach2 in-hand. For right now, I'm using a Harbor Freight motorcycle carrier: https://www.harborfreight.com/400-lb-receiver-mount-aluminum-motorcycle-carrier-62837.html It works well enough, but is a pain to deal with all the straps.
  17. I have the rack/fender/bag kit ordered for my LX. As long as you have the brace arms contacting above the center of the wheel, you should be good. So I'm going to try lower contact on the rear wheel and a higher contact point on the front as it has more fender clearance.
  18. Whoops! Just realized that I ordered the Mach2 rather than the 1-up. Much better carrying capacity and already setup for fat tires. https://quikrstuff.com/product/mach2-single-rack-2-hitch/
  19. Same rack I have on order for my LX. Just don't expect to see it anytime soon.
  20. Reddy, When you put "MX" in your post, you were referring to the XS rather than the LX. Correct?
  21. The MXS should have a slightly lower rolling resistance (because of the tires) than the XS. Given the power of the 750 watt motor, I wouldn't be too concerned either way unless you have hills to worry about. Even the MXS struggles to move my 250 pounds up a few of the very steep hills here in middle TN. Personally, I initially wanted the XS but it was out of stock at the time. So I ordered the MXS, which was in stock, to start exercising ASAP. I have since ordered the LX mid-drive in order to take advantage of the ebike gearing to get up the steep hills easily. I also really need the step-through as I ended up flat on my back on my concrete driveway getting off the bike recently.
  22. I have one of these on my MXS as I needed more room to mount "stuff": https://smile.amazon.com/gp/product/B08JPNSVY8/
  23. Still waiting for the LX to get to Sondors from the port. Sondors doesn't have a delivery appointment this week. <grumble>
