I have enjoyed riding my 2017 Stromer ST1 limited edition a few times around Maui. This bike has such a smooth and sturdy feel to it but the time has come to sell it (with a newer battery purchased last year) because I don't ride it much. The OD reading shows 205 total miles, LOL. Why? I am 225 lbs and the 36-volt/500Wh battery and 500w Hub motor don't provide the kick I need to move my body thru the trade winds we get here. My first ebike was a Motiv cruiser with a 48 volt system and a throttle which was fun but it did not feel like I was riding a bicycle. I am seriously in search of an ebike that blends higher power with top components and high quality thru axle engineering. Not so easy as I have learned when the budget is around $5k!
