    How far can we push it?

    Ravi, To say this is impressive is a huge understatement and disservice. You have really put your efforts and money with your passion and with great results. Numbers like that help everyone benchmark what is possible and the potential of a given horse with the right jockey ,so to speak. I am...

    Stromer ST1 vs. ST2

    An update to this post with a comparison of the MPC (Miles Per Charge): ST1 again was 36 miles and ST2 was 48 miles per charge. Distance % change 33% increase in distance of ST1 gold battery to ST2 gold only battery These are very close riding conditions with the st2. In closing I feel that the...

    Exploding Rear Tires?

    Can you take a picture and post it? That would clarify the point.

    I have not tried this as I do not own the bike; however below you will find the number for customer support at Specialized and I am confident that they will be able to address. I would point out your previous course of action with dealer and have the bike next to you during the call and someone...

    Exploding Rear Tires?

    The tolerances of the city kit and the rear wheel on the ST2 are very marginal and I had the rear fender raised by my mechanic who leveraged a wrench against the rear wheel, coming up from the back and the fender to assist with clearance. This leverage was applied after the fender connections...

    BMC and Stromer...

    Stromer has an offering in the Elite and Platinum ST1 for half the price or less than an ST2 and I am talking about what you can buy. Specialized same way on pricing structure. I think you are dead on in regards to positioning and they intentionally leave the other market for the other buyers...

    BMC and Stromer...

    The ST2 is so far advanced in its feel that the only bike I have ridden that I would say is close component for component is the Specialized turbo S, but the electronics tops that on the Stromer , a $1k list upgrade from Specialized S to Stromer ST2. @Cory151 is correct in his statement above...

    Diamondback Overdrive EXC with TranzX Mid-Motor

    I had a chance to ride the Easy Motion Nitro last weekend and it was a very sweet and fast ride. They do make nice stuff for sure.

    Performance upgrades to the Stomer?

    I opted for the FBV of the body float and await it's arrival. The FBV is what few have the luxury of trying but being blessed with the inability to push back from the pasta bowl, this Fat Boy Version (FBV), Orange over Orange seems to be the charted recommendation for the 230 club. I am envious...

    Diamondback Overdrive EXC with TranzX Mid-Motor

    Vern, Sounds like eBikes are an afterthought for Performance or the liability insurance has their hands tied hence the "training rides". In CA you must have a plethora of dealers to choose from. My dealer in the midwest ships nationwide if you need other options and is truly in the business...

    ST2 and Apple App

    Hopefully Apple will have review capability for all stars as the app works flawlessly in both the iPhone and iPad versions as I now have had the opportunity to use.

    Diamondback Overdrive EXC with TranzX Mid-Motor

    Seems like a good bike at a great price. I would want to get a feel for the production date and the nature of the dealer. They say 2015 so you would think this is very fresh stock. Some of those in the industry of selling bikes don't realize that the batteries of eBikes should not just sit...

    Diamondback Overdrive EXC with TranzX Mid-Motor

    I have only seen Court's reviews on this and noted the "clanking" that seems inherent as the gear shifting and pedaling take place. This is the same as the Raleigh eBike I believe and it's true retail is less than that at REI

    Racktime bags

    I purchased the Black Box by Racktime ( Art No T20040) from BikeShopHub.com and spoke with Brian who was an excellent help. I had no need for the straps to turn it into a backpack, and although not in the way, they did have to be lowered each time to expose the clam shell case zippers, thus they...

    Racktime bags

    This provides more clearance when the "Racktime" badge is in the rear and that is also for a clip on of another light should you so choose, which would be redundant with our ST2's. Thanks for your guidance on the bag and I think it is a definite winner. I will post picture with that mounting...

    Racktime bags

    Maybe a silly question but could your bag be mounted in reverse? Could you secure it by changing it 180 degrees. I ask because the web pictures from manufacturer show it 180 degrees different than this picture and I thought this may help with the clearance previously noted. It is great to have...

    Post pics of your Stromer here

    I like how the St1 rider is just sitting back, with the power to overtake all in front of her. Truly enjoying the scenery and her day! Beautiful

    Stromer ST1 vs. ST2

    The ST2 torque band if you will feels very similar to a Specialized Turbo S which I test drove as does the riding geometry. You feel like you could take on more obstacles with ST2 and drive thru things, where as the Specialized feels faster probably due to tire size and width. IMO these are the...
