Well, Storm just got back in town from being overseas, so they are swamped, and are working on getting the page updated so you can order the bike. Also there will be many options available for the fatty and thin as well, so there trying to get those up as well. The current goal is to take orders with an option to pay shipping cost when the bikes are ready instead of up front and expect 3 month wait. The current system in place they'd usually have ordered additional bikes with their orders to the factory will end, because of the added expense and managing. For the future, they are looking to go public with the bike company and eventually have retail sales, but for now, to keep cost down he wants to stick with the model he has in place. The base price is the same as the fatty.

The site with new information should go live soon, just can't give an exact date or time, since it's currently being updated with new information.

The Fold is interesting to me because I can fit two of them in the back of my SUV. However, I just purchased two Thins and I'm trying to think of a way to make them fit. Any suggestions?

Not inside, but by removing both wheels on each bike, they might fit in a large SUV. But that would be horrifically time consuming. The cheapest outside carrier, requiring some DIY skills, is a simple hitch cargo carrier and devising some, for lack of better words, captive cleats to hold the tires. My aluminum cargo carrier was about $70 bucks. I already had it for a decade. I don't have a current picture of it finished but here is how I started.

The battery boxes on our bikes eliminates, simple hitch racks that suspend from the top tubes. Devising a second set of adapters after buying commercial Thule Fat Bike adapters for 50$ is where I began.

Converting a simple hitch carrier or just buying a traditional wheel supporting bike rack should be easy for the skinny Thins.

Wow, love the preproduction bare metal look. Reminders me of the Movie Terminator metal chassis. Just finished streaming "Terminator Genisys", this evening. )) The main tube cavity looks like it could hold some items, even a slender tire pump. Beefy. Wonder where the battery pack will be? ))

That will fit behind the seats in my Airplane.

      I am unable to turn the battery key that came with my Sondor's. See the linked video. Would welcome advice on what might be wrong and/or how to remedy the situation.

      Both bikes have a 750w big magnet Bafang. The fatty's 750 is inside the stock 350 motor housing. Fatty has a 48v 30ah battery driving a 35 amp big momma 18 fet controller. 
       
      The Fold started life as a Foldx7. I replaced the stock 20 x 80mm rims with more sporting 24" x 65mm  rims laced to a 750 Lindsey motor, which slightly increases overall gearing over a stock Fold. That still leaves the overall gearing a lot less than the fatty so it's able to make due nicely with just a 25 amp controller,  
       Both bike's lighting is powered off of the main battery.

      After upgrading the front crankset, rear freewheel, (53/17 final gear ratio), chain,  LT48 battery, 20-amp controller and display the bike was a beast. Easily commuting to work at 26-27mph and hitting 28-29+ with a bit more effort. The issue was at those speeds in LA traffic I needed the ability to stop fast too. And re-adjusting my brakes every ~2-3 weeks was also getting annoying. The solution was new tires, hydraulic brakes, and Rotors. Here's what I got:
      --
      Rotors: Shimano Deore RT66 180mm 6-Bolt Disc Rotor
      Brakes: PASION E BIKE MTB Hydraulic Disc Cut Off Power Brake E-Bike (This is basically just a Shimano Hydraulic brake set that's been modified to have the motor cut-off. Make sure to select the right option, in my case it was the second one from the left as my controller has the 2-pin (red) motor cut-off).
      Rotor Spacer: Shimano F180P/P2 Disc brake adapter
      Hose Wire Clip Clamps: Jiyaru Bicycle Cable Guide Brake Line Holder Hose Wire Clips Clamps (To route the hydraulic hose by attaching these to the existing closed cable lines).
      Tires: Schwalbe Marathon Plus HS 348 Road Bike Tire
      --
      This thing stops like a beast now and with the extra traction from these tires this is a nice safety upgrade. Should reduce the changes of flats too as these tires have built-in tire-liners essentially. So far really happy with the upgrade. :)
      I hope this helps somebody out!
      Chad
