I mentioned this in a separate thread, however, I noticed that the Cruiser has a break in the seat-stay. I see this as indicating that it may be offered with a belt drive at some later date. Does anyone have any information about the roadmap for this model?
The LX with it's chain seat stay could also go belt drive.

Another update from Electrek on the timing of the next production run. ;)


Less than two months ago, electric bicycle manufacturer Sondors quietly announced three new high-powered e-bikes that were unlike anything the company had made before. The new e-bikes are part of the upcoming Sondors Elite line and are now taking orders for the second production run of the new models. Don’t expect these new e-bikes to be mass-produced, at least not according to Sondor’s marketing.

The company says that the new Sondors Elite e-bikes will be part of a small production batch, described on the Sondor’s site as “Small Batch Precision Production — Extremely Limited Reservation Opportunities Now Available in North America Only.” After selling out of the initial production run that will ship in October of this year, the next batch of production is expected to begin shipping in January 2021.

Love the look of the Rockstar. Anyone remember how much it weighs?

65 lbs per their website in the Specifications expanded listing. It's a nice design but I keep breaking parts on my bike when I go trail riding...thinking perhaps I could have bought a more expensive bike for the same amount I'll end up spending.

You have a Rockstar?

No I do not - and sorry if that the impression I gave! I bought an NCM Moscow which cost me $1100. Cheap for sure. But it was my first ebike and in-stock at the time which was important during this pandemic. Now I need to save up for something I will use multiple times/week that is more durable. Looking at Sondors, FLX, Luna, maybe Zen, and I'd say Watt Wagons has grown on me the most.

I am looking forward to hearing reviews on the Rockstar...

I'm in the first batch, (Oct) so I'll be back on here folks to give you my (unprofessional ;)) review with pics. My Sondors X was my first time on ANY bike in 30 years so tractor full of salt on my thoughts. :) Folks just like pics usually anyway. :) At least me anyway, love, love the gentleman's reviews on Youtube of all the e-bikes..

Rockstar will be an upgrade from my Sondors X, I'm sure. I bought this Rockstar blindly based on the promo pic, but happy I did. I am that impressed with my X!

I agree. I just missed out on the last black one. Cant wait to see pics and feedback.

The 65 lb weight of the Rockstar may be the weight of the bike without the battery.That would make ROCKY a heavy pig.

I bought the LX two weeks ago in that they were 1. going to sell out soon; 2. Prices will increase next year to market price instead of the much lower pre-sale price. Didnt want any regrets. Can't beat the price and tech on these bikes.

I missed out on the last Rockstar and am anxious to read what the October deliveries have to say...

it made sense to me because you are right the october bikes will be out and if its a total bust i can get a refund. i really doubt that will be the case but it gives me a sense of security of knowing or about to know the customer reviews before final purchase.
