As usual from Stromer, a Launch Edition will be the first available new ST2.
It will contain these two bags for the rear rack. I expect, a bigger battery than the basic ST2 and this special coloring.
Where is the torque sensor on this one?
I believe they are still using the TMM4 ?
The belt drive will remain a niche within a niche (different drivetrain within the hub motors). The Pinion will remain even more rare. Nevertheless, similar to the Schlumpf drive, it will find its customers. In Switzerland, Stromer is a very strong brand, in Germany, the 45 km/h are a 1% business, but in Benelux....Very nice color. Will be interesting to see how the EU customers receive this vs some of the Pinion-based offerings from Klever, Flyer and MTB-Cyclotech.
So standard version is almost 6000 euros special edition is 7000, I guess simplicity doesn't come cheap.
Discrimination against the poor by designers and their employers is reflected in the pricing of many appliances and tools.
Finally, we get basic design simplicity, usually well made and outrageously overpriced. This is status (the Mies van der Rohe
Idk. Some forum members with new Stromers that wouldn’t run would have been happier with “Too bad, you buy, now go away”.I am in with the crowd that is very interested in this. I had a belt drive on my first commuter e-bike (now on long term loan to my sister). I can't say enough good things about the belt drive.
As for the TDCM motor, I have one sitting right here next to my desk. It never worked and the vender (not Stromer) basically said: "too bad, you buy, now go away." That said, I have no doubt that a large vendor like Stromer will make the TDCM motor work.
If there is one thing, well, really two things. I would like to see different frame sizes, one size really doesn't fit all. In addition to that, please an option other than 27.5 wheels. There are no studded street tyres in that size. This is an issue to year-round commuters, and this looks like a great commuter bike.
