    Stromer chargers - issues and replacement

    Hi guys and gals, curious if any of you have had any issues with your battery charger? I have an ST1 Platinum from 2015 with only mild usage (once per week during Spring and Summer). My charger fan has just died, and when I came back to the charger it was very hot and there was a burning smell...

    Pedals - do you use the stock or did you upgrade?

    Thanks JR! And I NEED someone talking slow :-P :-D As soon as I get and try these, I will report back. I'm excited to try them.

    Pedals - do you use the stock or did you upgrade?

    I just ordered these (tried to buy at REI, but they didn't have them in the store). I read some reviews where some people had trouble installing them. I'm a complete noob with some of this stuff, so please forgive me if this is an idiotic question, but will I have any trouble attaching these? Is...

    Pedals - do you use the stock or did you upgrade?

    Thanks for explaining all of that!!! I definitely get it now. I think I'm going to try the Crank 50/50, merely because REI has them, and I'd like to get some before tomorrow when I ride again. I also have a $10 credit with REI :-P It would take a lot for me to go without my boots. I grew-up...

    Pedals - do you use the stock or did you upgrade?

    Mark, what are the things these pedals do that make them better than the stock pedals? I'm a noob with pedals, so can't figure out why some pedals might be better than others. thx

    Pedals - do you use the stock or did you upgrade?

    Noobish ST1 Platinum owner here, back in action after not riding for a year due to busy schedule with work and school. I started riding again, and the stock pedals sometimes seem a little smallish. I don't know the first thing about pedals, and so I've just started researching. I definitely...

    Charger/Display unit not working?

    You're a smart man J.R. - that's exactly what the shop suggested! I just got back from Radio Shack, replaced the battery, but still the same result. It seems as though the display unit doesn't want to connect/communicate with the bike :(

    Charger/Display unit not working?

    Update - I just tried a couple things, and it appears that the charger fan starts for a few seconds and then turns green upon plugging in; In other words, this is normal behavior for the charger. The display piece says the same thing whether screwed onto the bike or not, which leads me to...

    Charger/Display unit not working?

    Hi guys and gals, Hope you all are well. My former eFlow bike is now in the hands of my boss/company. They came to me yesterday stating that they couldn't charge the bike. When I looked at things, it appears that the charging unit might not be working. I'm not sure, but when I plug the charger...

    Heads-up: 1UpUSA rack does not work with bikes that have rear rack

    I have been super busy with work and school, and we've had a cold weather patch, so I have not tried anything with this yet...

    Heads-up: 1UpUSA rack does not work with bikes that have rear rack

    Thanks for the suggestions! 86, I will look into that next time I attempt loading my bike. I really like this rack, but was really bummed when I finally got the rear rack installed and couldn't get the arms under it. When I first thought about this whole setup, it seemed that the arms of the...

    Heads-up: 1UpUSA rack does not work with bikes that have rear rack

    I love a lot of things about my 1Up rack, that I recently purchased. I love the looks of it, I love the way that it is compact and doesn't extend far away from the car (which means more room for parking), I love the way it folds easily, I love how quick and easy it is to place bike on, clamp and...

    Speakers?

    I was thinking about getting one but then changed my mind (my route is a beach bike path and is so nice, no music addition needed). When I was looking, the best value from my extensive research was the JBL Charge. There are a couple portable speakers that have better sound quality, but the price...
