    ST2-S rear fender mount ? Install of mounting screw?

    My ST2-S popped the mounting assembly for the rear fender, where the top tube meets the seat stay. I have the Stromer rear rack, had a chunky load on the rack, and hit some real choppy pavement at speed. Fender pushed downward and popped the bolt/screw/assembly. I got a new assembly sent but it...

    Stromer ST2020 concept bike - Gates belt drive and 5 speed integrated gearbox

    So this will have a 500w motor and a 5 speed transmission in the rear hub? I hope they can do a really wide range 5 speed with a very tall 5th gear. I rarely use more than 5 gears out of my 11 so this could be a really nice setup

    Ravis battery talk

    It helps if you know your estimated battery need for the day. Example- battery was 40% after ride today. I charged it to 70% as a start. Tomorrow I can ride with that or plug in charger when I get up if extra is needed. I try to only charge to uppermost levels just before ride, if needed

    Tandem recommendation?

    Hi, my brother is looking for an E-tandem after trying my Stromer. It is for his wife and their 15 year old daughter. They are in Calif, San Jose area. I know nothing about E tandems. I see Pedego makes a low $3000 model with rear hub motor. Any experience, any suggestions? Thanks

    Conti TopContact 50 Vectran 26 X 2 tire pressure?? For high speed riding?

    HI, what are folks running for front and rear pressure on these Conti 26 x 2 tires? I do mostly high speed cruising here in MN but roads are getting worse with holes/bumps/ripples/cracks. Stromer with no suspension so those road nasties at 29 mph are.... nasty. Conti max is 65 psi. I'm...

    ST2-S rear fender mounting bolt?

    Thanks. Are you talking about the front fender mount screw as that seems to be the only comparable one? ?? Front fender mount screw looks like a good bit of work to get it off??? It seems to me that it requires taking off the front wheel to access the screw. There is such little room to...

    ST2-S rear fender mounting bolt?

    Hi, my rear fender popped the bolt that secures it to the rear seat stays. I had a small bag on the rear rack, probably well under 10 kg limit but there were some poor roads/ lots of bumps. Note: when this bolt pops, the fender touches tire and you stop in a hurry Searching, I see a "fender to...

    Bike cradle for inside station wagon??

    Thanks Elliot but my bike has to lay down in the back. There is not nearly enough room to stand up, even with wheels removed. So I'll need to use a slide in-out tray/platform to ease loading 60 lb bike. Anyone ever crafted a helper cart ??

    Bike cradle for inside station wagon??

    Any suggestions for a platform/cradle to use in loading/ unloading an e-bike from the back of a station wagon/ inside? Bike would be inside the wagon, laying down in the floor. I much prefer the safety/ security/ weather protection of carrying my e-bike inside my wagon. Getting a 60 lb bike...
