Sondor's electric fat bike, too good to be true or a good base to build on?

Sondors eBike Now Available for Pre-Order

Looks like this bike may be a good starter bike to build on. Price is cheap considering your getting the bike and all the electronics. The bike has a large following. This is version two and has an aluminum frame and fork. The first bike was all steel.

Luna Cycles has a ton of performance upgrade parts to improve the performance of the bike and it can be upgraded to put out 1000 watts. I was considering one for a beat around commuter/errand runner for the street but the bike only comes in one size, an 18 inch frame. All the bikes I have now are 21 inch frames. I'm contacting the company to see if they will offer the bike in larger frame sizes in the future.

There is also now a "thin" version much lighter, 38lbs, and even a belt drive option. These are single speed, but decent components.


Note high shipping charge, which applies to all the Sondors bikes.

Selling 8,000 bikes with few complaints that I've heard about is a fairly powerful statement.

I'm just concerned I'll fit on it comfortably. The frame is an 18 inch and all my other bikes are 21 inch frames.

Ok so I gave in and bought one for street use. Got the Fatty, white with black wheels, aluminum frame and rigid fork, higher capacity battery. Won't be here for a few months.

It's a gamble but for a street bike it should be ok. I have some take off parts from other bikes which I plan to swap over to the Sondors, Trek seat, Bontrager 1 1/8 60mm stem, Trek low riser MTB bars. Tires I'll swap out for Vee Rubber Speedster 26X3.5. Then for $100.00 I'll get the Luna Cycle LCD and 20A controller. This bumps the wattage to 750 watts and removes the 20 mph speed limit.

I know this bike is dirt cheap but there are lots of satisfied Sondors owners so I thought I'd take the risk and grab one, wish me luck!!!

I don't blame you, I was tempted also. :)

Be sure to give a good review when it comes :)

I couldn't resist. The battery alone for my Levo costs more than what paid for the whole bike!! If it turns out to be decent then I got a killer deal. If it turns out to be a POS then I'll sell it on EBAY.
