    Stromer Energy Consumption Data

    Very surprising the comparison with electric cars. 186 Wh pro km is roughly only 10 times higher (but the weight of a car is nearby 100 times bigger). I see the reason in the very much more often used "full throttle" mode an a Stromer.

    Stromer in the USA

    I rather share my experiences from Switzerland and Germany. Stromer US said: The final assembly of a Stromer might be (meanwhile) possible for a handy man. But more than any other commuter bike from any competitor, a Stromer contains a lot of proprietary parts. It's upon the customer to make...

    New Stromer flagship ST7

    From all newer 48V / 27½" Stromer, the ST7 was the most advanced I've tested but alos the most "defective". None of the issues did ultimately stopped the ST7 from running. But the restrictions were remarkable. Let's have a look on my hometown in the warm morning light. Stopped my commute on...

    New Stromer flagship ST7

    Hmm, We have different understanding of "fun". If I go "all in" in the flat, I'm always fighting the internal speed limiter. This is rather annoying than fun for me. So I ride in (3) and use (S) only for accelreration.

    New Stromer flagship ST7

    I can confirm, the (S) mode can get locked due to high motor temperature. This happens also, if proper settings are used. But operating the ST7 with too low speed forces the error. However, it's not a design failure, it's because of the safety settings. Remember: Riding in the flat with 45 km/h...

    Stromer announces solid state ceramic battery prototype

    No doubt, once ever the ceramic solid state battery will come to market, the e-automotive industry will open champagne. But for sure, this battery solves problems we not have on the Stromer. What we desperately need is a battery with much higher energy density. Stromer has built a mockup of the...

    New Stromer flagship ST7

    I listen the complaints and then try to rate them. I'll pick out a few points: ABS: I had one user, who claimed have don some settings on the ABS. But the ABS is fully independent from Stromer and OMNI. There is a ABS icon displayed at startup, but it may disappear or being replaced by another...

    New Stromer flagship ST7

    Nope. The learning for the "Gates-ready" sensor design began with the ST2 Gates, followed by the ST3 Pinion and ist now at the ST7. The other series for all Stromer with derailleur gearing are different and should not be mixed up with the Gates.

    Goodbye Stromer...for now

    What's the price when you take the value in account? The value is more than just commuting environment friendly. The value is the daily laughing when you ride your Stromer. And overtaking other 45ers with their super-extra-cheap-builds is just priceless!

    Stromer ST1 charger, can it be repaired?

    The 36V chargers were without dedicated (proprietary) protocol. Might be easier to buy a no-name 36V 4A CC-CV with BFP and connect the needed plug. But then it's no longer Stromer equipment, so use in plant pot outside the house.
