    The new Stromer ST5

    It will definitely get road dirt and water caking the horn up down there.

    The dealer cannot properly bleed my brakes

    Reading up on similar issues affecting other bike brands with Magura hydraulic brakes, the consensus seems to be that this issue is more common if the brakes weren't bled the way Magura recommends. Even if the lines were purged of air, but the small reservoir in the brake lever has some left in...

    The dealer cannot properly bleed my brakes

    The Magura brakes are used on other bikes, so it wouldn't be Stromer specific.

    The new Stromer ST5

    If you can't wait for an integrated loud horn/bell, I recommend an Orp Horn. Saved my bacon a few times...

    The dealer cannot properly bleed my brakes

    I concur with @JayVee and @devhead, I frequently trigger traffic lights by laying my Stromer over to activate the sensor circuits in the road, never had an issue with my brakes.

    St2 power assist switching off

    The micro switches should be in the brake levers, there is a small wire that runs from the lever to the controller. I'm away from my bike right now, so unable to be exact.

    St2 power assist switching off

    Could it be the brake micro switch sticking, since you mention the problem resolves with a brake tap? Any error messages?

    OMNI Custom Motor Settings - assumption correct?

    @nwroller, your assumption is correct, to the left is less and rightward is more.

    Thinking about selling my ST2

    I just sold one of my Stromers (ST1 Elite) on eBay and shipped it from the west coast to the east, using a shipping box from https://www.shipbikes.com. I was able to get a discounted FedEx ground rate using their website. The buyer said the bike arrived in excellent shape. I had to use the...

    Change dealer in Omni App

    Anyone know how to change the dealer in the Omni app? Weirdly my Omni app has a dealer that went out of business as the go to Stromer dealer, instead of the one I bought the ST2s from.

    Stromer ST1 platium - chain falls off constantly

    Correctly tension the chain and adjust the amount of chain wrap round the rear cassette (this will also improve the speed and smoothness of the shifts) and it won't fall off anymore. I only have had this happen after my dealer left mine out of adjustment.

    Thudbuster / Body Float

    I have both, and whilst the TB is very good, the BF is amazing; I exclusively use the BF now.

    The rear tire always skids when I panic stop

    Definitely recommend you train yourself to perform emergency stops under safe conditions and develop muscle memory and instinct, before you need to do a real one. It'll pay off in spades later.

    Very bad head shake or shimmy

    If it wobbles on the stand, then the issue is definitely imbalance in the wheel and/or its components, since it eliminates all of the other factors. I'm wondering it there is a way to add compensating controls to the wheel in the same way a car wheel is balanced after new tires are fitted.

    Very bad head shake or shimmy

    I recommend eliminating the headset adjustment as a cause first, by confirming it is adjusted the way you want. Note, adjustment is more about feel than being able to use a series of torque settings etc. It's not difficult to do yourself and the late Sheldon Brown has some good info on how here...
