The first time I laid my Stromer down on the ground a few months ago the brakes went away. You could press both levers till they hit the bars and no brakes. The shop had it for a few days because they were having trouble bleeding the brakes. I knew that they didn't know how to do it and I was their test rabbit. Today I transported the bike in my Honda Element and had it strapped to the wall so it wouldn't fall but I went around a corner and it tilted about 40 degrees which is only half way down. When I took the bike out to ride it one of the brakes is gone again. The shop wants me to leave it again but I don't trust them any more. What to do? How could it be so hard to bleed brakes? I love riding this bike but it is so fiddly. You can't just go into any bike shop and get it worked on. I feel like when I owned an Alfa Romeo back in the 70's. You are stuck with the dealer.
