    Wheel axle does not fit fork end

    You can just use your aluminum forks but add a torque arm. It works with my bike and I totally trust it. Shipping from GRIN technologies shouldn't be that expensive. The arm itself was designed by a couple of very capable mechanical engineers and are about 1/4" thick and would handle the...

    Wheel axle does not fit fork end

    Torque arm that I bought for my Tern Verge Si8 was not that expensive. I think around $27 Can...cheaper than buying another bike. Are you not mechanically inclined? What Thomas is recommending makes perfect sense and safe.

    Replacement front wheel for Haibike

    Sounds like you have a faulty wheel bearing. Do the spokes ring tight (tap on them and listen to them and they should have a slightly "ping")? Maybe the wheel needs to be examined.

    Wondering about the front suspension forks on e-bikes

    All M/C suspension front ends use oil and have complex damping mechanism built into the down tubes. I know, I just replaced the fork seals on my Suzuki M/C. There are orifices and damping oil along with a spring and I wonder if e-bikes are the same. Does the oil in the front end of a...

    Wondering about the front suspension forks on e-bikes

    A question...are the front suspension on e-bikes hydraulic and springs or just springs? Are both front units suspended with a hydraulic oil inside them and what would be the maintenance. I am assuming the suspension system is just like the motorcycle suspension so there is a damping of the...

    Firmware Upgrading with Bosch, Brose and Yamaha or others...

    OK but actually, the firmware is just an update from my understanding and not a means to access the parameters of your controller in most cases. I am sure Bosch doesn't allow even the dealers to play around with the parameters. Cycle Analyst does allow some degree of access and even with this...

    I don't know anything about your motor...you may have to research this on your own. Google is a great place to start. For instance I would just search for the "Repair shop for my electric bike in the NY area- Stromer bike" or where ever else you live.

    For those in the CA zones affected by the blackout- How do you charge it ?

    Solar panels....I have a 200 watts setup on my roof and can charge my 36 V 14.5 amp battery in 5 hrs. It works but it costs. The total setup cost with panels, 2 x 6 Volt deep cycle batteries, 20 Amp controller, 1000 watt inverter, monitor and associated hardwire (wiring, plugs, connectors...

    Stromer sport

    I am still not clear what you mean "nothing happens". The motor doesn't turn when you apply throttle and when you turn the crank?? Be very specific and describe exactly what happens.

    Stromer sport

    I think you may have to look into the motor. Find the wiring diagram and determine what wiring or pin outs are for the thermocouple coming out of the motor. Once you find the pair of wires that are this sensor then pull out your multi meter and check to see if it's going to ground or if you...
