Let me help spec out your bike to maximise your riding fun.
Tom - Sonder Support Hero
- When will you get your bike?
Under 'availability', you'll see 'Buy now', 'Sold out', or 'Building from...'
'Buy now' means the build and size is available - you can buy it now! Hooray!
'Sold out' means we're out of stock and don't currently have an ETA - we'll update the chart as soon as we do.
'Building from...' means your bike frame/components will be arriving in Neil’s workshop on the date given in the availability table. Neil will be able to schedule in your bike to be built from (but not necessarily on) that date.
If this hasn't cleared things up for you, drop Bike Hero Tom message by filling in our contact form on the support hero page.

- Which wheelset for which Sonder Bike?
Buying wheels for your bike can be pretty baffling. Here are the bikes that you can stick your wheelset onto.
Love Mud Wheelset Which Sonder Bike? LM Orbit Camino Al, Camino Ti, Colibri LM Volution Camino Al, Camino Ti LM Hobo 29er Broken Road, Frontier LM Rumpus 650b+ 100/142 None of our Sonder Bikes LM Rumpus 650b+ boost Broken Road, Frontier, Transmitter, Transmitter Carbon LM Hurly Burly Vir Fortis LM Hullabaloo 650b/b+ Frontier, Transmitter Carbon, Transmitter, Broken Road LM Hullabaloo fat Vir Fortis
- Can I get boost hub wheelsets in a standard hub size?
We're afraid not! However we do offer a few wheelsets with standard hubs for you to take a look at.
For Mountain Bikes, the Rumpus 650b+ is available in both boost and standard 100/142 sizing.
- Can I run a tyre with a width outside of the recommended range for the wheelset?
In brief, no. Although it is physically possible to put tyres on your bike that are wider or narrower than the recommended range, it is unsafe to do so as the tyres would not fit the wheelset properly. Our recommended tyre width ranges are the maximum and minimum tyre sizes that are safe to use on the wheelset.
- Is the Juice dynamo hub upgrade available on any wheels?
The Juice dynamo hub upgrade is only available with the Love Mud Orbit and Love Mud Volution wheelsets.
- Can I set up Sonder Frontier to run as a single speed
That is a very worthy question. We have a few singlespeeders here so we are not surprised to hear you ask. Frontier does not have horizontal dropouts or an eccentric botom bracket (don't they always creak anyway?) So to run Frontier as a singlespeed you will need to use a chain tensioner.
- What wheel sizes can my Sonder take?
The Broken Road is designed for a 2.8 in rear B+ tyre. This has a diameter of 729 mm at maximum size for manufacturing tolerance. This clears the seat tube by the ISO required 6 mm, at min tolerance. So can you use 29'er wheels? Yes... Broken Road has longer chainstays that will take a 29 in wheel.
The Transmitter is designed for a 2.8 in rear B+ tyre. This has a diameter of 729 mm at maximum size for manufacturing tolerance. This clears the seat tube by the ISO required 6 mm, at min tolerance. A 2.25 in 29'er tyre has a diameter of 747mm. So it isn't going to fit. Of course a skinny 1.9 in 29er tyre will fit, but so what? It’d not really ride the way the frame is meant to be ridden.
Camino Ti will take 700 x 45 mm. On 650b some 2.0" MTB tyres will fit.
Camino Alloy will take 700 x 40mm or 650b x 47mm
- A few T&Cs to get out of the way first though
- This offer does not apply to Juice hub builds or wheelsets purchased as part of a full bike build.
- 60 day returns offer starts from the day of delivery.
- Wheels must be returned clean, free from dings, and in their original packaging, damage to a returned product caused by improper packaging may disqualify the returned product for return.
- We cannot refund wheels that have suffered rim damage due to hard impacts or other severe crash damage. In cases of severe damage, you may qualify for our accident replacement scheme.
