    Stromer ST2 Suspension Shocks

    Curious, since I don't know much about shocks etc. What will be the proper shock size to order for the ST2? 26 or 29? Not sure because I don't know crap about this. Thanks~!

    Letting go of my ST2 for another ebike

    The issue is the ST2 is a heavy bike, yeah its nice, rides superb etc. But it's just too heavy, by adding a front suspension you are adding additional weight, etc. I tested out a few Haibikes today, loved the XDURO Urban SRX, awesome bike~ lightweight, nimble, easy to load, carry, pick up...

    Letting go of my ST2 for another ebike

    A Fox front suspension for about $700! for a bike that already retails at $6,999. Do the math! You can get a complete bike with full suspension for far less...

    Thudbuster / Body Float

    Bodyfloat IMO, but I don't know much about the thud buster... That's what I have on my ST2 and it works great!

    Letting go of my ST2 for another ebike

    Thinking about getting rid of my ST2 for another better capable ebike. Chicago streets are just horrible to ride a bike that has no suspension. Yes I have the bodyfloat seat suspension but I still want a better ride quality. This bike is a dream to ride once you’re on good pavement but when...

    Stromer ST2 Suspension Shocks

    Wow $550 for a Stromer shock? Ouch! Not a cheap investment, how does the Stromer ride now? Would LOVE to know, I've been debating a front suspension shock for my ST2 but at those prices of $500+ and up its hard for me to justify such an expense... :(

    Riding the new ST2 s

    Correct, people in America don't have 7k to invest on a bike. Very few do have that type of money to spend on an ebike, but that's very small percentage of people. Yes, the ST2 is a great bike, I own one myself but I was fortunate enough to get the ST2 at a huge discount becuase I would of...

    Surge and Ampere

    Hi Mike, I currently own a Stromer ST2 which I love and yes its not the most friendly budget ebike on the market but its a quality made ebike. Now I've been on the market for something more affordable for my fiance to enjoy without breaking the bank because I did break the bank with the...

    debating wether to jump to another ebike brand~

    Actually, yes thats a good advice. I'm in the process of buying a bike rack to transport my ebike to the bike shop which happens to be 160+ miles away from my residence. They specialized only in ebikes so I will be testing a few bikes out before making a decision. So a bigger tire, fatter...

    Thule T2 or T2 Pro?

    Thanks the easy fold is quite expensive and I've looked at it at the bike shop. The bike shop sales people informed me that the Thule would be a good choice but I also notice the arms on the Thule which secures the tire and I was like, hmmmm.... maybe this is not the best option. That's why I...

    Thule T2 or T2 Pro?

    Hey guys, can't tell much of a difference between these 2 bike racks. Wanted to purchase a Kuat, but its just too damn costly for my taste. Came across a bike rack for ebikes called, Hollywood Sports rack, but looks kinda cheaply made. My understanding is that Kuat is made entirely in China...

    debating wether to jump to another ebike brand~

    I go outside of Chicago,My experience with Kozy's has been HORRIBLE, Terrible! Did I say terrible??? Yes, indeed customer service lacking, if you don't buy your bike from them expect long delays in repairing or taking your bike in for warranty claims, etc. I would NEVER ever visit Kozy's...

    debating wether to jump to another ebike brand~

    It's a great ride, LOVE it, however due to ongoing and constant issues it kinda leaves the end user with a sour taste. If you know what I mean... I'm still not 100% convinced that I'm going to take the leap of faith, however I am going to study my options carefully, test ride other bikes, etc...

    Hello guys, I own a Stromer St2, but I seriously need a bike that has a good suspension, preferably full suspension, urban, pedalec bike, minimum 500watt mid drive motor or I would sacrifice for 350, bosch motor. Currently looking at a few Haibikes, but with so many brands to choose I need some...

    debating wether to jump to another ebike brand~

    Thinking about parting ways with my ST2, going with a full suspension urban ebike, maybe Haibike, etc. still doing some research. I’ve been having nothing but issues with the ST2, just recently took it back to get serviced, the front cassette was not aligned properly, rear fender almost came...

    Front end not balanced, shakes, wobbles

    I purchased this bike outside of Chicago, drove approx 3 1/2 hours to Wisconsin, so I don't have a "local dealer" per se. Last time I took it for repairs they wanted to hit me up with a $276 repair bill OUCH! I'm in the process of taking the bike to a shop to have them install aero bars, and...
