  1. So I decided to go for a 52v upgrade on my Sondors Thin using the Luna Cycles 52V TRIANGLE PANASONIC GA 18650 14AH HIGH POWER AND LONG RANGE battery. I carefully measured and I thought I could just barely get it in to my Sondors Thin if I took out the bumpers for the stock battery and some of the cable guides. I got the battery and even after looking it I thought it would work (see attached photos). I used a Dremel to take out the bumpers that were in there and most of the cable guides in the top right. The battery looks like it was made for the box, dimensionally it fits like a glove, but (and I knew this was going to be the tough part) the hard box on the Thin just won't quite close even after my modes. I don't think I'm close enough to quite get it there either. I really like the look of the hard box case on the Thin, so I'm trying to figure out it: Is there some alternative idea to getting this thing to work in the stock box. I'd thought maybe there's some way to modify the hinges... or even cutting off the outer rubber on the battery might save a few mm. Any ideas folks? That's why I'm posting on the forum. Is there another form of hard box, maybe from the non-Thin Sondors, that might fit in it? Is there something dumb I'm just not thinking of here? I guess the final option is just remove the box and put in a soft triangle bag (such as the Luna Cycles one). Does anyone have any experience putts one of those on the Thin? And once I do that I might as well get an even bigger 52v battery, right? I've also got photos of it compared to the ElctroBikeWorld LT48. Appreciate any input anyone has. Thanks! @Reddy Kilowatt?
  2. Has anyone tried to upgrade the thin bikes motor from the stock 350 to a more powerful one. I would like a plug and play one if possible. I'm ordering from Electro Bike World this weekend a LT48v 14Ah battery, 25amp KT controller and a KT-LCD3 as my bike fell over last week and cracked my screen and now doesn't work. Thanks Tim from Kansas.
  3. Good day to all...While impressed by the package of the Fold X, 48v 500w bike, Id like to unlock some power. Will the Storm 20a controller be a plug and play upgrade? I have the Sonders LCD and throttle w/ on/off button.

  5. So I purchased a Sondors Thin about a month ago, and am already looking to upgrade parts on it! I currently have a 203mm rotor on the front and a 180mm on the rear, complete with Shimano Zee hydraulic rotors. I'm now looking to replace the bottom bracket and crankset as they're not exactly quality parts. I'm wondering what the specs on the BB are, and what I'd need to replace it with a new BB and crankset. Thanks!
  6. 2017 Original fat The new Original has a different battery configuration. Will the lunacycle upgrade still work???
  7. Sondors THIN battery upgrade Hi all Sondors THIN owners, Anyone sucessfully found and installed a non-stock battery on a Sondors THIN? If so, I would sure love to hear about it, and see some pictures of what you did and how. The point for me, would be to upgrade from 36v stock battery to, say, a 48v/20a pack. But it needs to fit the plastic box on the bike, of course.... I know that both Luna and Velo websites sell Sondors battery upgrades (both 48 and 50v) but theyre made for the Fatbike, and the battery is different on the THIN. Namely, on the THIN, it is not a bottle-style battery, but rather a neat looking triangular box that clicks in and out of place, with a key to lock it in. This means that the plastic mounts and reinforcements inside the plastic box on the bike are different, and take up space differently (and moreso!) than on the Fatbike - as far as I can tell. Also, I think that maybe the plastic box on the THIN is actually a little bit slimmer that it is on the Fatbike to begin with, is that right? So all in all, I dont think the Luna and Velo batteries will fit the THIN bikes. Sadly. BUT there may be other options out there - e.g. from the numerous chinese sellers online. Or maybe Luna or others have plans to make something for the THIN bikes in future? Any and all input on this topic would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, JKS
  8. Hey guys so I have a question I hope you can help me with. I got an original fat bike last year (no LCD) and added the official Sondors LCD after. I love the bike, especially with the LCD, but I live in a hilly area and it lacks power on climbs, especially with my 185lb butt with a full backpack on it. I think a higher current controller might help the situation, but I understand there are some compatibility issues with the Sondors LCD and the controllers Luna cycles sells. Does anybody know how to identify what controller/LCD combo I have so I can look for a stronger controller that will work? Or is there a better first step for a power increase other than the controller upgrade? Thanks all.
