    ST5 copycat from India

    I live in a high theft city and use the Stromer to run errands in the city. The gps really helps with peace of mind. . See https://electricbikereview.com/forum/threads/stromer-st2-stolen-and-recovered-30-mins.30626/#post-230053 and https://www.wired.com/2015/04/stromer-theft-mode/

    ST1x Advice

    If you are going to be doing a bunch of riding in SF, I'd recommend the bigger battery. Between the hills, the stop lights and signs, and the wind, the bike will use a lot of power if you are on 3 all the time. I've got the 1kW battery and live on the south end of town. My longest ride on...

    Shop charges for Stromer activation/registration change?

    My local Stromer dealer charged me $349 for the upgrade everything included. I dropped the bike off, had lunch, and picked it back up. It was a painless process. I had purchased the bike from them and had complained about the worthless 2G connection on the old OMNI. It worked fine in parts...

    USA 2G networks shutting down - 2G Theft Recovery will no longer work

    I upgraded my ST2 with the OMNI C and it has the bluetooth option. If you pair it with your phone, it will automatically unlock when you get close to the bike. The display is much nicer to look at than the old OMNI, but other than bluetooth and 3G, it doesn't seem to offer any other upgrades.

    Why buying a Stromer?

    I've only felt the need to post when I have had a problem. Up until today, all of my posts were related to that single problem in 5.2K miles of useage. Why would I bring up a problem if I worked for Stromer? I purchased my bike from New Wheel in San Francisco. They are a fantastic Stromer...

    Why buying a Stromer?

    Once again, why do you feel compelled to post so many negative comments on a forum for a bike you have never owned. You really should find some happiness in your life and perhaps spend more time on your bike. I've got ~5,200 miles on an ST2 and other than a problem with a software upgrade...

    Why buying a Stromer?

    Stromer bikes are fantastic and since I proudly own and ride one, I can say make that statement in good faith. One has to question what prompts a person to post literally dozens and dozens of disparaging comments about on a forum about a bike brand that s/he hasn't ever owned while...

    Why buying a Stromer?

    Perhaps you should focus your efforts on posting there rather than wasting your time continually bashing on Stromer and shilling for BH. As I stated, you obviously have some connection to the company and your opinion is not needed.

    Why buying a Stromer?

    A total of 69 post for BH ebikes. 9.2K for Stromer. Given how few people apparently own a BH ebike the number of problems proportionally is quite alarming.

    Why buying a Stromer?

    I also like my Stromer because its a wonderful bike. How could I be jealous when I have an excellent, well made bike that is fast and smooth? I don't, however, feel the need to go on constantly every forum other than Stromer and shill for them. They don't need the help and I do not work...

    Why buying a Stromer?

    Oh I see. Not much action on the BH bike forum. Surprisingly the apparently perfect ebike isn't so perfect after all. Chronic 05 error BH Dapu motor failure again Battery/controller fault?

    Why buying a Stromer?

    We all get you work for or sell BH ebikes. Your constant shilling for the company is quite annoying. Why don't you go to their forum and stay away from Stromer. You don't own one and we don't want to own a POS BH ebike

    USA 2G networks shutting down - 2G Theft Recovery will no longer work

    2G service in parts of San Francisco has been awful for quite some time. New Wheel was kind enough to upgrade my ST2 to the OMNI C for $350 this past spring since 2G no longer connected at my high theft workplace. OMNI C has worked great since then other than the bad software upgrade. In...

    New Stromer owner. App broken or am I stupid?

    Although my app couldn't talk the bike after the latest software update, the bike was still connected to GSM. The upload/download bars would still show up on the display. Stromer pushed the old software out to my Omni and I was able to download and install it. Bike now works as before...

    Latest Stromer Omni C update killed my GSM connection - Stromer rolled it back

    New Wheel came through for me and got Stromer to push the previous version of the software back to my bike. Everything is now back to normal although it appears that I will never be able to update the Omni. Service at New Wheel has always been fantastic. When the service tech told me I had...
