I received a Sondors Fat Tire eBike as a gift. I have no way of contacting the original buyer to find out where the bike was purchased from. I desperately need to buy an LCD Screen system and controller to unlock the bike's full potential. Are there any serial numbers or markings on the bike that indicate where it was purchased from so I know which LCD Screen to purchase? (i.e. Indiegogo, Kickstarter, gosondors.com)

Any help would be greatly appreciated!!

 

Thank you!

Hi @yardstick311,

currently there is no way to identify where your bike originally came from. I recommend you to buy the following things:

  • Generic KT-LCD3 Screen for your Sondors eBike - klick (read the Product description for more details)
  • 20A Controller for your Sondors eBike - klick (Gives you up to 720W power instead of only 450W)

This is currently, in combination with the stock battery, the best "full potential unlock".
If you have a IndieGoGo Sondors eBike you don't have to change out the controller, if you don't want to do it.

Hey there. There might be another way to find out which type of bike you have. Have a look at the rear dropout of the bike, the part where the axis of the rear wheel is mounted to the frame (see image below). Is far as I understood, there is a difference between the the steel frame and the aluminium frame, a difference of how the seatstays and chainstays are welded to the rear dropout.

The rear ends of the seatstays and chainstays of the steel frame are open (see left had image).

The rear ends of the seatstays and chainstays of the aluminium frame are closed (see right hand image).

IMPORTANT: This is an assumption, since I do not have an aluminium frame bike. It would be nice if someone could confirm this!

The light weight aluminium frame bike was only available through the Kickstarter campaign, so if you have an aluminium frame, you definitely need to get a Kickstarter compatible LCD. If you have a steel frame, it could be both IGG or KS, so this would set you back to step one on your quest for looking for the right LCD, sorry.

      Hey folks that are patiently, or impatiently, awaiting a shipping notice or bike, please read this. Based on our experience with this since 2015, here is what you can expect:  PLUS, the Pandemic has a huge affect on deliveries with overcapacity UPS capabilities.  
      As containers arrive in LA, UPS take possession and gets them processed through customs. There are hundreds of bikes per container, and probably a dozen containers.  As each container is opened, UPS will mark them as received and you may get a notice with an expected delivery date (either from UPS or Sondors). This does not necessarily mean that it is on a truck yet or has left the facility The bikes are shipped by truck, not air. Once it leaves LA you may not get any update for days as the truck works it's way to your regional or local hub where it will be offloaded and scanned again. Not getting an update for a few days is normal. You will sometimes get a planned delivery notice once it gets to your local UPS. However, sometimes it just shows on your doorstep. Sometimes it shows up on your doorstep when the tracking shows that it's still in LA. It's quite inconsistent, and nobody should panic. If you get a notice, be patient. It can take more than 2 weeks to get to you depending on how fast they empty the containers and when they find space in a truck, how long the drive is, etc. Signing up for UPS My Choice might give you more info, but sometimes not. Whatever you do, don't start bombarding Sondors with emails about "where is my bike" yet. They have probably opened 1 of a dozen containers so far and are working through things over the next couple of weeks We all know there's a huge shipment of bikes coming. Thousands of bikes. I can feel the excitement, or maybe it's just me lol. But anyway I can feel the pressure building. We don't mind you posting your delivery notice, but please don't post your tracking number. Just black that part out, and you're good to go. You don't want anyone the be able to reroute your delivery to my house do you? Moderators will delete all posts we see with tracking numbers.

      Battery on 2019 Sondors Step will not charge. I plug the charger into it and charger light remains green (never turns red to indicate charging). I reset LCD to default just to make sure it want settings issue. Any ideas? I tried two different chargers as we ha e two of these bikes. When I remove battery and plug in to charger, 3 green dot lights turn on only when plugged in.

      Hello everyone I am introducing myself.
      Eddie in New York City near Chinatown, I received my Sondors Fold X two days ago and I am thrilled after riding it for one minute. I rode all day until 3 am and the battery was still showing more than half full. It’s a wonderful bike. My trouble is finding cool tech accessories such as front rack or basket. I really like the holding black system by Brompton allowing to clip all sorts of large baskets or even luggage. I wander if it would be possible to adapt it on the Sondors frame which was a missing two holes in order to make it work. Every other items for bikes are pretty standard and hurt the esthetic of the Sondors. Sondors can you please make such great accessories like Brompton or can you partner with them to adapt their invention to Sondors?
      if anyone knows of cool design and practical systems for carrying stuff as well as maybe a passenger, please let me know, I am browsing amazon for hours of frustration.
      Also, are there some straps that can be used to lift Sondors up the stairs with more ease? And could there be a place where in the frame a tracking device could be placed in discreetly for locating the bike if it’s stolen?
      Special thanks to Marcia at Sondors who sent me the bike exactly on time.
      ps: the package was missing a wheel nut or bolt plastic protector, I’m not sure where to get some.

      Does anyone know how to correct this?
      My LCD displays 49.6 mph whenever I am coasting. The mph displays correct MPH whenever I am pedaling or using the throttle.

      Anyone has a suggestion for a cheap suspension that will fit a Sondors X?
