Mark Sparx Custom Sondors Electric Bike in Brooklyn
While visiting Greenpath Electric Bikes in Brooklyn, New York I met a gentleman named Mark who had purchased one of the Sondors fat tire electric bikes and proceeded to outfit it with gear and accessories for his commute in the city. Mark has increased the range of the bike by adding larger batteries and he got help from the two local shops, Greenpath and Propel. His pannier bags contain different batteries (one 36 volt and one 48 volt configuration). His bike has custom yellow accents to help motorists see him and he wears a cool motorcycle helmet as he cruises around. Mark has owned the Sondors since its first release in 2015 and it’s still running strong. He added a Cycle Analyst ebike display from Grin Technologies, this panel improves control over the two batteries and to adjust speed. He uses vinyl to create yellow accents on his black bike and purchased the fabric from a shop in Times Square. He’s working on some custom wiring to keep the bike looking clean and said the bike has had no issues riding in the rain or snow! Even water and sand at the beach. He crosses the Brookly Bridge and Williamsberg Bridge regularly. I was particularly impressed with Mark’s front rack because the Sondors did not come setup for that initially, it’s another custom job. Mark said he’s 5’9” and weighs about 240 lbs and the standard 350 watt motor has held up great. Apparently he usually rides around with speakers and a JBL setup so he can have a good time at block parties!

I love Ebike reviews, but this guy is the most boring ever.
I like Mark Sparks. Smart Guy.
Batteries are subject to premature failure and they do not
honor their warranty’s. This company is useless
Good job on bike and video! Thanks for sharing
Love the video💕 I hope. He gets his own channel one day 👍🏽
You found a really nice, interesting guy. Great "man on the street" interview.
why did you ask the poor guys for his weight
It is cool that someone with serious ebike street cred is named Mr. Sparx.
Very cool bike. This is why i LOVE Ebikes . Anybody can find a bike in their price range and customize to their own specs. The possibilities are endless.
Watching in 2019. Looks great.
"Dude I caught you on the perfect day" 😂😂…that’s a fact you definitely did bro!!
That guy is so gassed😂😂
i live in nyc i will keep an eye out for him
I bought my body float at that location. I wonder how many times a day he gets harrassed by NYPD. That yellow seems to make him a target.
When making a video please show more of the bike/ product. The guy is very handsome but I want to see the bike

Everyone is missing the playing card in the spokes trick. Vroom

Seriously, e-bikes are the future. Cars are yesterdays news. Free yourself from your gas guzzling machines and start living a better life. You will save RIDICULOUS amounts of money by ditching your car and getting an e-bike.
Thx cuz💵💰🤺🏆🥇ima mode mine when I get my ebike bike 1700 watt 32V battery
Rare fellow. Ride safe Mark.
What a lucky day to meet up with Mark Sparks! Good interview, and interesting to see what he has done with his bike. I have always heard that New York people are not friendly, well this shows that’s not always so. Great video!
*The bike came on time and in excellent condition☞☞>**share4.photo/ebicycle?х ** I assembled the bike myself in 20 minutes, with the tools that were provided with the bike. Assembly is minimal and simple and can be accomplished by anyone. Prior to doing the assembly, I accessed a YouTube video of someone assembling the same bike and simply followed their lead. The battery came with a partial charge. Once out of the box, I started charging the battery during assembly. By the time I was finished, the battery was fully charged.*
