Pros:

  • Extremely affordable for a purpose built electric bike, I like that the wires are integrated and the custom battery box matches the frame and hides the electronics (while protecting them)
  • Decent components including Tektro disc brake rotors, levers with motor inhibitors, solid pedals with nice grip and ergonomic grips with lockers that tie into the color options
  • The chain is tight and short, uses decent hardware from KMC and is kept on track with a plastic guide on the front ring, it should perform well on bumpy terrain
  • Four color options for a custom look including yellow with gold accents, black with black accents, blue with black accents, yellow with black accents
  • The larger 4.9″ wide fat tires help absorb bumps when riding, this compliments the steel frame which also dampens vibration, the comfort saddle includes rubber bumpers which also helps
  • The battery can be charged on or off the bike, this is great if you’re using it for commuting or need to top it off half way through a long trip, the charger is small and light weight ~2 lbs so it’s convenient to bring along
  • Upgraded rims add an element of style because they are punched out and allow the colored liners to be viewed, punched out rims reduce weight but also allow the inner tube to squish around and add comfort
  • Optional fenders and rack for improved utility in wet riding conditions or for those who plan on commuting, they fit nicely with the frame and can be attached at the threaded bosses on the chain stays and near the rear dropouts
  • Includes a basic pedal assist sensor that activates the motor at a low efficient level helping to offset the weight and single speed drivetrain, if you relied on this purely it would significantly increase range

Cons:

  • Only available in one frame size ~18, I noticed that the seat tube has a cut in the backside to allow the collar to clamp down on the seat tube but most other bicycles have this cut on the front to maintain the integrity of the tube as riders tend to lean back or push backwards on the seat when riding
  • Assembly was required and much more involved than other electric bikes I’ve purchased online, there are some good instructional videos posted by Sondors but it might be worth getting help from a local shop with the proper tools, grease and stands
  • Limited use on soft terrain like sand and snow because the motor isn’t especially powerful and there’s only one gear to pedal with… consider adding a schlumpf or efneo bottom bracket to add gears
  • Very short warranty period of 30 days, difficult to reach the company (at the time of this review) due to high volume of orders and fulfillment through Indiegogo
  • A couple minor interesting choices in hardware… the kickstand is fairly tall and didn’t seem adjustable so the bike feels a bit tippy (but I love that it has a kickstand)
  • This is a fairly large bike and there are no quick release options on the wheels which would make it easier to fit into cars or storage areas like garages etc. even though the wheel size is officially 26″ with the giant tires it’s actually ~30″ wide when inflated
