Article on Sondors Tips

Recommended Posts

Thanks for the useful tips!

Can you show a picture or link to a product for #5... I'm not exactly sure what you mean by a bracket over the weak point of the rear hub.

Also please link to the Facebook groups you mention.

I expect my bike to ship soon but planning ahead of time with tools and accessories as much as possible!

yup.  Unlike in the install video, my cable goes up and over rather than down and under the bracket.  Your guess is as good as mine on which is better.  I was thinking over in case of something coming up off the ground.  I have already had to go over branches brought down in a storm that I couldn't get by in traffic.

Would be really interested to see if we have other options.

      I ordered 2 Fold X white with 500W motors, 48V 14AH battery yesterday and received shipping confirmation today!
      They arrived on Jan 22.  The displays shipped separately and arrived about a week later.

      The purpose of this thread is to display the various parts of the Sondors Original electric bicycle.  These diagrams are meant to annotate all parts on the Sondors Original ebike with an eye towards defining terms for the complete beginner.  Have a suggestion for improvement?   Post a question in the forum so all can see and contribute.  This thread is a reference work that is closed to replies to keep it tidy.
      Try clicking on an image and bring it up in a new window.  These started out life as high resolution images and can be seen larger in their native format.
      The Frame
      Here we point out common terms for the Sondors frame.  These terms are common to all bicycles and ebikes, and you can use these terms in any discussion of cycling, anywhere.

      Bicycle Components
      Here we list the parts attached to the frame, above.  We can't point to every single part but we have hit all of the highlights

      Components - Rear
      Zooming in on the back to label a few things not easily visible in the full bike view.

      Components - Front
      Zooming in on the front axle area to see some details on the brakes.  More importantly, if someone wants to see your Sondors' nipples you don't necessarily need to call the police.

      Components - Middle
      Now you know the bottom bracket means two things depending on what you are pointing at.  And the 'spindle' is the axle of the cranks, and hold on the crank arm via the crank bolt (which takes an 8mm hex key wrench that you should check every so often to ensure it is still at about 35 ft lbs of torque).  Plus with this enlarged view we can see the 2-pieces that make up the PAS system a lot better.
