    (Refund Refused/More Issues) My Experience - Brand New Stromer. 3 months of ownership, 2 months of repairs.

    I am still considering a Stromer purchase from Lenny's. Its a 2 hour drive BUT I'd rather spend funds for an e-bike at dealer with realistic prices, excellent customer support and no hassle test ride availability which is not the norm with the clown in downtown Naperville. That dufus has no clue...

    Any potential rain issues with pre 2020 battery mounts, Bossch drive or Rohloff?

    I do wonder if brushing some grease on the metal contact points of the display underside will prevent any potential moisture issue with a display. I recently rode in rain got totally soaked and had some concern the display might stop working while riding. I do grease the battery contacts on...

    AbeK, Hope you get your Stromer back on the road soon. I never did the test ride up in WI. When I saw your post with the screen issue I decided to hold off till maybe sometime in the future. There is no local service for the bike where I reside. Very possible I may attempt a DIY rear hub bike...

    Thanks for your input HarryS. Keep in mind its not 30 mph full time. Just when needed to open a gap ahead of traffic to enter a turning lane or to stay ahead of traffic when exiting a hwy. I get a jump at a series of lights on no shoulder road with very limited time to exit before traffic from...

    PedalUma, What did you mill or alter with your frame to get the motor to fit? Was it something you were able to do with hand tools or did it require a vertical mill or precision jigs. I am always interested in seeing how someone did a frame modification to get a component to work.

    Super Moto X @ 45 psi. I am not sure my rims can accommodate Vee Speedster 27.5 X 3.0. I'd have to scrap the fenders which were quite useful with the rain yesterday. There is no vast selection of low rolling resistance tires for 27.5 X 2.4 as most are made for gravel or off-road. Do not want...

    PedalUma, You may be right with non dual. Front is a necessity. Roads I'm riding on are 50% crap surface. When I look at the Stromer it's not rear suspended. Have not noticed any handling complaints with that bike design. I seriously like you blue bike for the direct approach. Really nice! No...

    harryS, I use to ride bikes which required carbon fiber fabrication. There was no dealer dependency for a component. Most of the one of a kind components built were crude looking but quite strong and effective while other components were a waste of time and effort. Overall a good learning...

    linklemming, I saw your bike thread before I started this thread. I enjoyed your decision to paint out the Luna logo. Your bike turned out great! Got a lot of inspiration after seeing your photos.

    m@Robertson, I tried to view your website and my browser is blocking it. I wish I could view it for all the documented information you have available. All the info you posted is very helpful and my brain is in a bit of overload. I clicked on the "cyclone" link and did not know that forum...

    BEAUTIFUL!!! Is the 7th photo with partial blue paint a frame you fabricated? I recall seeing this bike previously in another thread and thought it to be the most amazing e-bike that can carry a lot of weight for a long distance self supported tour. Never saw anything like it previously. I...

    Its for a personal goal. I like the concept of using batteries and a motor to surpass what I did at an earlier time in life.

    Lot of excellent feedback. Wondering if anyone commenting can post a image of the e-bike they built. Photo reference is always very helpful.
