A game changer! I may be able to unbox it tonight if I have time. It was quite a large box, Barely fit in the elevator. I am hoping Storm Sondors comes out of the box and assembles it himself.Nelson37 wrote:That has to be the best and highest-quality cardboard box I have ever seen. It clearly is able to outperform all other cardboard boxes on the market, and if it is available at a reasonable price, they should be able to dominate the global cardboard box market.
Clearly their revolutionary and visionary technology is awe-inspiring.
Yes they did notify me when it shipped, shipped via UPS with trackingChamp9669 wrote:Ordered my Sonders Thin last week and maybe you could answer a few questions:
Do they notify you when it is shipped?
How is it shipped?
Is black or white shipped first?
How long did you have to wait?
Almost all OEM cranks are either 170 or 175mm. 180mm are uncommon and usually an expensive upgrade. 165mm is a common size on fixed gear bikes, but not elsewhere.Champ9669 wrote:Does anyone know the length of the Sonders Thin Crank arm? I think standard is 180mm but I am looking for 160mm due to knee replacement.
If it is just for one side/knee you could use a crank shortener (example: http://www.dutchbikebits.com/crank-shortener )so your good knee can still pedal full length and the bike stays stock.Champ9669 wrote:Does anyone know the length of the Sonders Thin Crank arm?

I have had motorcycles and bicycles that could barely stop with the stock pads and good aftermarket pads have always fixed the problem so long as the caliper is strong enough to hold the greatly increased force.Roledzki wrote:Yeah the wheel was definitely seated correctly, when I noticed the rubbing I pulled the wheel off to make sure it was seated correctly. I think brakes are super important and I like to have maximum stopping power personally. Especially when you live in a crowded area like I do and you never know what can jump out at you. Luna cycles sells a shimano hydraulic brake set for about 90 dollars that I will probably look to upgrade to eventually. I will not do any upgrades this summer though, I will ride the bike as is until it's time to put it away for the winter.
Thanks for the advice, I will have to look into new pads. Hydraulic calipers sound very appealing thoughmaydaverave wrote:Actually after the break in period on bikes and motorcycles especially cheap base models its a good idea to replace everything considered normal wear and tear items because they are always as cheap as possible.
