Does the ST1 only fit certain rear racks?

I just received my white ST1, and I was hoping to go with this rack, because it is white - http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...rd_t=36701&pf_rd_p=2084660942&pf_rd_i=desktop

As I look at the ST1, I notice that it only has the one hole mount, instead of two on the sides. Does this mean that the above rack cannot be mounted? Does anyone know of a white rack that would work, if not this one?

thank you


Also on a side note - is there a trick to get the bell to work? The handle that makes the bell ding seems like you pull it back manually, and let it go to ring the bell; however, half the time it does not work, and it seems like the bell needs to be tightened or adjusted or something.

Darn, I was really hoping to be able to get a white rack. What would happen if I mounted that white one?

The Axiom that you suggest has one nice advantage, in that there is only one connector bar at the top, so it has more of a stealth look... would those weird bottom connectors go into one of the two connector holes at the bottom? (sorry, not sure of the correct terminology)

Oh snap, I found a white one!!!! :) http://www.modernbike.com/product-2126227256?gclid=CLGUwOmK38cCFdgQgQodJWcNCQ

Ravi or anyone,

Should this seatpost collar fit around my ST1 seatpost? I took the screw out and it doesn't seem to stretch wider, and as it is, it doesn't seem to fit around the seatpost. Am I missing anything?
Pull the seat post, slip the collar on and put the seat post back. Position the collar and tighten screw.

When I pulled the seat post, the collar seems slightly too small. I tried stretching it, but it doesn't appear to be stretchable?

The seat post. The tube has a quick release clamp at the bottom, so doesn't even seem like it'd be possible to put anything else on the tube.

In looking at the post, I do see the number 31.6, and I am wondering if that stands for the milimeters width. This collar says 29.8 mm.

I tried looking up the specs of the ST1 online, but the specs listed on the Stromer site do not include the seat post width.

Ok thanks for confirming Ravi!

I purchased that one from Amazon and it should be here Saturday, so I'll report back. I also have pics and a report in the works, but life has been plenty hectic with full-time work plus school.

I just added a similar seat post collar too, to fit a rear rack, although I needed a little rubber fill to make it fit snugly. No problems at all. Got a nice mudguard set at REI, and fitted the front one, didn't bother with the back (they were only $17 the pair) and the rear rack catches a lot of the splash anyway. My ST1 is looking sweet now.....also added a Euro style coffee shop lock purchased on Velo Ornage (a YWS Ring Lock). That too is a snug fit over the big tires but it works. Only for quick stops of course.

Would love to see a link to the mudguard set you bought and any pics!
