    Known Issues & Problems with Stromer Products + Help, Solutions & Fixes

    I updated two ST2 bikes a couple of weeks ago. Both communicate. I was able to set the PINs. One transmits its GPS location. The other says it isn’t available, and it hasn’t been available since the update. The one that works has worked since the first day. I’m taking the bad one back for...

    Chain jumping on Orbea Gain F40

    Sounds like it could be as simple as a new chain. They are consumable items. It could also just need a derailleur adjustment. Your LBS can tell you.

    Stromer St2 Stolen and recovered...30 mins.

    Was your bike is locked mode? I assume it was or you wouldn’t have received the stolen notification. The thief couldn’t ride it in lock mode. He pushed it around the block? Thanks for posting this story. The only improvement to your locking regime would be to lock the frame to the wheel so it...

    Adjust the high limit screw on the rear derailleur. You don’t want to drill holes for pins. Cassettes are consumable items. Plastic disk chain guards are available, but just adjust the high limit screw. This is a normal break-in issue for a new bike. If that doesn’t fix it, then take it back to...

    It isn’t a problem. It is a feature. There is no torque sensor. The Gain works with a cadence sensor. It is what it is.

    Then you are getting 1% per mile, or 100 miles on a charge. That is fantastic mileage. Do let me know if they open up the API. I’ll be the first to download the toolkit. 😃 Thanks again for the review.

    Another Gain review

    Thanks for the review! The cadence issue turned me off to the Gain when I test rode it. I was struggling to find the right cadence to engage the assist while riding up a hill. Frustrating. With torque sensing you are in charge of power. With cadence, the bike is. I ended up buying a light CF...

    Newbie Question - Why does Level 1 assist feel like it is adding resistance?

    I had a similar problem, but intermittently in every power level on my ST2. I fixed it by recalibrating the torque sensor. Find it under the Sensor menu on the OMNI. You're supposed to recalibrate whenever you update the firmware or adjust the tightness of the rear axel. Give it a try. It was...

    Have you ebiked in So Cal?

    @Ebike4life, You can book a room at Two Harbors and Avalon. No need to camp if the weather isn’t cooperating. It can get wet on Catalina in the fall. Stop at Sky Harbor Airport for a buffalo burger lunch. You’ll have a great time. Cheers!

    Have you ebiked in So Cal?

    You don’t need a fat bike for Catalina, but it will work. A gravel bike will do too. Bikepacking.com has a weekend gravel ride documented with GPS tracks, and this video. Get campground reservations beforehand.

    Wilderness.org e-bikes on federal land

    It was bigger than the NPS. It was the Department of the Interior which administers the NPS, BLM, and other agencies. However the order does not include any of the National Forests as they are administered by the Department of Agriculture. I expect the DoA will follow the DoI’s lead.

    ST1 loosing power & speed

    On the ST2 it is in the control panel, the OMNI. I just searched and found an expired Stromer page that said it is in the Sensor menu. They also recommended recalibrating after every firmware update or axle tightening. I had several firmware updates without recalibrating, which may explain my...

    ST1 loosing power & speed

    I had the same problem with one of my 2016 ST2 bikes: Intermittent slowing, sluggishness. The next time it happened I immediately stopped and recalibrated the torque sensor. Problem solved. It hasn’t happened again. That’s the short story. The actual symptoms were interesting. When it got...
