First of all: myStromer AG has contacted all affected owners personally.stem can break and Stromer US is recalling 195 of them.
I’m surprised you would offer “safe” point of view. Stem breaking is similar to their carbon fork breaking/recall on ST1 in that it could be deadly.First of all: myStromer AG has contacted all affected owners personally.
For those who are not familiar with the ST5: This bike has a unique construction. Stem and handlebars are one piece. You'll found a bunch of pictures in the ST5 section of this forum. You'll also found further and more detailed information on the Swiss stromerforum. This is in german and translation might sometimes misleading. AFAIK, the issue came up among a routine check at a dealer - and until now, all checked equipment passed the test. From my point of view, the ST5 is safe. I'm riding a checked ST5 at the time and i do it with full speed - as it should be done with such a bike.
I presume, you've read in the meantime my detailed description of the purpose and the setup of the new ST5-test.I’m surprised you would offer “safe” point of view.
