@Rich did you get yours yet? Mine came in last night at 730PM. I was afraid it wasn't going to come. I put it together but I'm going to take it to a bike shop to get it all trued and lined up perfect. I took it out for a spin and WOW! It's such an amazing little machine. I already got stopped (at 9pm) by someone to ask about it lol. Can't wait to have some fun with it this weekend.

Hello @spierce and welcome to the Sondors Owners Forum. Sorry your order was mishandled and it IS a problem to wait, then your delivery gets pushed back, while others just placing their orders,  get deliveries within a couple of weeks. Unfortunately this is reminiscent of the original campaigns, the time lag and lack of customer appreciation. But for the mistreatment you would have gotten the best deal in eBiking at half the cost of the competition. 

 I ordered the Indiegogo Original Fat Bike, on the 3rd of Feburary, 2015. Most thought the Yellow Frame Copper wheeled would be the most popular color combo ordered and the factory picked to start building the most numerous color combination ordered....that was the Black / Yellow wheels. There was a ton of controversy surounding the crowdfunding marketing and existing eBike retailers and manufacturing claimed the Sondors effort was a hoax and rip-off because you couldn't buy the parts for the $499 contribution. There was a lot of panic on the original FB page by the nonbelievers because of all the bad press.

Storm found out that the more info he released early, the more contentious the community of weak in the knees contributors became. I slept on my joining overnight and decided that it was well worth the gamble and I already had two other Fatbikes in the fire, to convert to electric, before the Sondors was announced, and I could afford to lose the investment, in the cheapest bike I ever bought, if it didn't happen.  Then things got more contentious as the closing date for the campaign was extended and the price didn't go up as was published in the marketing on the Indiegogo website.  Existing web pages disapeared and replaced with others with erroneous claims about specs and performance and all this sent some into panic mode trying to get refunds with no-one answering their pleas. Well, then some pretty good production videos featuring Storm started to appear and shots of the Warehouse full of boxed up eBikes and 18 wheeler trailers loaded to capacity with bikes ready to go to the dock to load on a ship. Expecting contributors counted the product and calculated ocean routes from China to California. Excitement reached a fever pitch and I was in the first wave of deliveries and mine reached a friends house where i had it delivered because UPS can't navigate my long narrow driveway that weaves thru giant oaks....July 15th, I never doubted but it was interesting to watch the circus. Happy endings, as I drove my first Sondors Home sticking outta the trunk of my Jetta TDI.

Hope you might change your mind and reorder at some point and enjoy a Sondors and the Sondors Owners Forum.

Probably depends on what upgrades you're talking about. The 20 & 25 amp controller will most likely fit squeezing it in or by mounting it sideways at the width, with cooling space. You'll have to devise a new method for securing it but Zip Ties have been a regular solution by others here on the fat models. Try some other method besides stuffing styrofoam around it as that won't allow it to cool properly.

If it's a Luna Controller & LCD, you should have no problem.

I ordered my thin 7 on May 22 as soon as it was possible to order the thins. I have not received any updates on my order since the order confirmation on May 22. Now I see that some people already received their bikes. 

Is anyone else on this forum still waiting for an update like me, or have all bikes in the first wave been shipped? I wonder if it is better to cancel my order and resubmit my order.
