The socializing and networking aspect of our Sondors forum bore fruit today: @Burnfatnotoil and I met and I showed him my Sondors Fat, so we might have a future Sondors owner here. We had a nice time chatting, the only downside was that it is raining permanently today, so the test ride was quite short unfortunately.
Anyway, it was quite nice meeting another forum member in person!
The 100%-Legality Project (for Germany)
Alrighty, Ladies and Gentlemen...
This is the (ongoing) story of my 100%-Legality Project (for Germany). Since my Sondors FAT would require to have an operating permit in order to get it insured and to be allowed to ride it legally, I decided to change the specs of my Sondors to turn it into a Pedelec. German regulations require a Pedelec to have a 250W motor and to have either no thumb throttle, or a thumb throttle which is limited to 6km/h (pushing aid). Further more, German regulations define a Pedelec as a bicycle, and bicycles do not require an operating limit or to be insured at all.
Thanks to Wendy from Passion eBike, I now possess a 250W motor. I first thought about exchanging the original 350W motor and re-use the original rims and spokes, but after having seen so many cool mods here on the forum, it now urges me to get a set of new rims and tires. I've done some research and I am ready to start. I've also ordered a bunch of stuff:
Bafang RMG060.250.DC geared hub motor, 36 holes, black (in stock) Origin8 QR135mm sealed front hub, 36 holes, 135mm disc, black (in stock) 2x Fat-Bike 26"x4" 100mm rims, 36 holes, 13 gauge, black (in stock) INBIKE Cruiser Bike Seat, Wide Suspension Comfortable Bike Saddle (in stock) 2x Kenda Juggernaut Sport DCT 26"x4,5" tires (in stock) 2x Fat-Bike rim tape for 100mm rims (in stock) 2x Fat-Bike tubes 26"x4,5" with Schrader valve (in stock)
I might change my mind concerning the tires. The bike shop (whizz wheels) which will lace my new wheels has a pair of high quality tires to offer which might fit my preferred style. The guys from the above mentioned bike shop are experts for wheel building. Their prices aren't the most affordable, but since my motto is "quality first", it's ok.
These spokes the're gonna use are:
DTSwiss Comp 2,0/1,8/2,0mm spokes, black
DTSwiss Prolock brass nipples, black
DTSwiss Alpine special 2,34/2,0mm spokes, custom length, black
DTSwiss ProHead + Prolock brass nipples, black
I am looking forward to work on my Sondors.
I'll keep you guys updated as soon as there's something new to tell.
New batch of SOndors April 2017
Hey everyone. I'm a pro surfer from southern california, and am ready to get a fat tire condors bike for a few surf spots that have a long commute via trail.
Although Sondors is sold out of the bike I want, it says they will be available for pre-order in April of 2017, which it now is. Does anyone know anything more about when and if they will be newer models or the same?
I also am wondering if I should get an aluminum frame or steel? My bike will be ridden on the beach so it will be in salty beach air and want to avoid rust but don't want to lose strength in the frame.
