    Hot grips?

    Are there hot grips available for E bikes? I just bought an E mountain bike fatty and will be riding in cold Minnesota winters. I was very surprised that my dealer said there is no such thing as electric hot grips, that they are aware of. Is there such a thing? Please give a link on where I...

    Pinion Motor.Gearbox.Unit (MGU)

    This seems like a great idea for E MTBs. Getting rid of chain/cassette and having a carbon fiber belt is huge. E Mtn bikes need a mid drive so this awesome . What is the % gear range as that needs to be there? For speed pedelecs, I still love a properly done rear hub direct drive ❤️ And love...

    Hypotheticals - would you replace your R&M with another R&M??

    @Stefan Mikes , I care about real world experience, not the manipulated manufactures specs. For my riding, Stromer and its’ hub drive motors are clearly the current leader for speed pedelac bikes. And for Stromers next gen build: E 12 speed pinion with Gates carbon fiber belt and the whimpy...

    Who is transporting their bike in the back of a station wagon, bike laying on its side?

    @Slaphappygamer , thanks for sharing. I may try using my rear seat belts ( rear seats are folded flat) . This might be a better way so worth trying!

    Who is transporting their bike in the back of a station wagon, bike laying on its side?

    If your bike is on its side, do you use any type of cushion under it? I place a towel under left handle bar and a rubber mat under the pedal which is heavy into the floor carpet otherwise. How do you secure it? Mine rests on the non drive side, left side down. I secure with two long tie downs

    Hypotheticals - would you replace your R&M with another R&M??

    I would suggest that the R & M owners at least check out Stromer when they are looking at buying. The Stromer ST5 and new (revolutionary? ) ST7 have some great designs and ultra premium components. If you want a speed commuter with superb battery range, you should at least check out Stromer.

    2023 Trek Domane+

    Depending on what you are looking for in an E bike, hub motors may be the latest and greatest. For me, the hub motor Stromer bikes cannot be topped for my criteria: 1. Has to feel natural!! I have never ridden an Ebike that feels as natural as the Stromer (hub drive) series. Just that Your legs...

    E bikes with fenders

    I got caught in the rain while playing pickleball yesterday, about 8 miles from home. 🌧️ My Stromer has full fenders and it made the ride home soooo much better to not get the full body wet racing stripes front and back ! It was, dare I say, actually a nice ride. Cleaning the bike at home was...

    ST7 in crate, assembly?

    How complicated is ST7 assembly ? It looks like bike might be almost completely assembled. Is it just straighten the handlebars , check tire pressures, adjust seat height and you are good to go?? What exactly needs to be done? Thanks

    Varia radar mount ? … to license plate bracket ?

    Thanks. I will report back on it if I go that route. I will often ride without any bags and sometimes with one removal pannier and sometimes just a removable rear trunk. Maybe a mount on the seat tube AND the license bracket/ or back of stock rear rack.

    Varia radar mount ? … to license plate bracket ?

    Thinking about getting Garmin Varia 715 on my ST7. It has Radar and recording camera. Anybody mount it to rear fender , license plate bracket which sits just under the taillight? You would have two taillights but that seems fine. With the normal mount to seatpost, I assume a tail trunk mounted...
