    Battery Box Button

    The key only rotates about 60 degrees. Can you press in and hold the upper portion of the door such that you can easily rotate the key back and forth and hear the lock click ? Maybe pressing in the door will allow the mechanism to unlock easier. Perhaps a wire has moved and is blocking the lock...

    ST1 Tire Pressure ?

    Feedback from Stromer Corp Coming from our Swiss tech guys, 30 psi seems pretty good for someone between 120 and 160 pounds. I’m about 140 pounds running 40 psi for the speed, but 30 psi would be more comfortable. My commute is about 40 miles one way, so every bit counts for me. C. H...

    ST1 Elite above 20 mph ?

    That is strange ! I believe both actually meet the Federal definition of 'Bicycle' as the ST1's cannot be 'powered' above 12 mph ( Boost ) or so 'solely' by motor... and the Fla Law duplicates this definition.. it was just the fact that the 'Sticker' said otherwise which concerned me...

    ST1 Elite above 20 mph ?

    I am considering the Elite over the Platinum mainly due to the warning sticker : This is an Off-Road Vehicle, not to be operated on public streets, roads, or highways. Riding on public streets, roads or highways can or may result in legal fines, injury and/or death. ! Yes, it can be removed...
