After reading the title, I noted the date of the article and took a second and thought to myself; How has ES changed. I havent noticed any change in 3.5yrs.
Then I read on
The title is misleading.
Lets not get into the whole Sondors thing again, there is another thread for that.
By posting this, I really wanted to go deeper and find out if ES has changed at all and what you like about ES.

I just wanted to get a feel for the author and where he is coming from. Its interesting to read those 24 posts, and more of his articles on his blog website. I just skimmed over the articles looking at pictures and reading the pics comment. Luna seems to be a theme. All articles on the blog I read were written by Karl. Digging deeper the bog electricbike-blog.com is a spinoff of electricbike.com which makes sense now. This looks like a good read - article on LFP
The forum I’ve been lurking on for the last 8 months
Ever since the beginning of the Storm\Ivars Sondors Electric Bike Campaign there has been a not-so-subtle change on my favorite forum endless-sphere.com, and the change has not been for the better. What used to be a civil discussion platform for people wanting support or to connect with other ebike builders has degenerated into what appears to be just another bad episode of Jerry Springer. Storm\Ivars Sondors has arrived to the ebike scene and sold 7000 promises for a $499\$599 electric fatbike in a few short weeks and the ebike world got turned upside-down.
If we pull together as a community and decide to support the people who have pledged to the campaign with whatever support they need, that would seem to be the best course of action. Petty rivalry and negativity can only serve to keep us from achieving our goals of promoting ebikes for the masses.
