About the Sondors Ebike
The official website for Sondors is www.GoSondors.com. It all started as a crowdfunded project on Indiegogo and raised $6,109,958. This was by far the most successful crowdfunding project for electric bikes to date. Not everyone was enthusiastic for the campaign though. People claimed the price was too good be true, that bikes would never deliver, claims of fraud and lawsuits abounded early on in the campaign.
Since then, thousands of people have received bikes! Recipients have been satisfied (as of writing this, I have 2 of them myself. I backed the campaign within a few hours of it starting) Multiple Facebook groups have been started of Sondors ebike owners, the largest holding over 3,000 members.
The draw to the bike was the unique fat tire style, enclosed battery box and low price. This could be called the beginning of an ebike evolution. Since then, Sondors has launched another campaign on Kickstarter, this time raising over 1.3 million.
All have not been perfect yet. Although the percentage is low, some backers are still trying to receive bikes or handle warranty issues. Aftermarket support has been difficult. With just an email address to contact Sondors, it can be a long wait to get a response. There were also numerous reports of people receiving the wrong colors, etc. Hopefully this is all sorted out for the Kickstarter campaign.
In the meantime, we've made several aftermarket parts available to improve the ride of the Sondors ebike. Come check them out!
