The Chain on my SONDORS X has fallen off twice in 1,400 plus miles, hardly worth mentioning, but I decided to track down a fix. The first incident was about a month after receiving the bike and beginning to consistently riding a shared use bike path. I hit a rather large pot hole adjacent to the path, after an altercation with a motorist that violated my space in a crosswalk. As my rear tire fell into and bounded out of the hole, hard enough, that my chain jumped off the Chainring. I put the chain back on the Chainring and went on my way. The second time, last week, was during a downshift to first gear, as I reached my turnaround point. This time it was caused by poor alignment between my 56T Chainring and first gear. I fine tuned the Derailleur, adjusting the stops and alignment. Understanding the first occurrence was caused by the chain jumping vertically off the Chainring and the second with poor alignment, I wanted to attempt to cure both with a single change. I found a Chain Guide that I thought I could make work, or modify slightly, to make if fit. Off the shelf worked with the addition of a longer screw and elimination of a bracket. Here is a link to the Guide: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B075N1HP86/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o05_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 I will post an update, as to the durability and reliability of my fix. What I didn't show, was the small window I cut in the Battery Case, for clearance of the Guide's Clamp Hinge.
