Stromer ST1 Platinum - The Solution For The Common Commute

What do you do if you have the perfect high paying tech job in the city and the perfect home in the suburbs, but the two are joined by a commute from hell? The Stromer ST1 Platinum e-bike could be the answer to your problems.

In most metro areas of the United States, public transportation systems are poorly designed patchworks of multiple systems stitched together by disconnected lines, creating awful, sluggish, out-dated transportation options that force too many people simply endure the nightmares of congested traffic and over priced parking.

There's a solution that bypasses all of that and even gets you to work feeling refreshed and energised from a work out.

The Stromer ST1 Platinum is fast, traveling 30MPH with a pedal assist motor.

The ST1 Platinum has a range of appx 30 miles.

The Stromer is increasingly seen as a viable option for consumers looking to upgrade their lives, decrease the time they spend stuck in traffic while still getting the body moving.

Motostrano has been selling the Stromer models for 3 years now. Designed in Switzerland - the Swiss have a large base of e-bike travelers due. E-bikes are a great solution for areas where there are hills, as well as traffic. The more time we can spend out of a car, the better we all are.

The Stromer ST1 differs from previous models in that it's pedal assist only. The Previous model had a POD Power On Demand option, as well as a suspension front fork, 2 things we like about the earlier model. But the added speed of the ST1 Platinum makes up for the lack of POD and suspension. 

One of the best assets of the ST1, however, is that it's a serviceable bicycle, as well as a high-tech mode of transportation. Many ebike companies are fly-by nite operations who utilize proprietary components for most of the assets of the bike. 90% of the Stromer is standard bike stuff. The e-bike aspects of the bike, if there is ever a problem are easily replaceable in case of failure.

Hardware: Supermoto Wheels Explained

Supermoto wheels are a big investment, when you factor that your 2-3 year old dirt bike may have a resale value in dirt form in the $4-5K range, if that. We get calls from guys all the time who say "well, I'm not really racing or nothing, so I'm just looking for the cheapest wheels you have to convert to Supermoto". Well, the real reply there is that there really isn't a cheap way to get into Supermoto unless you're going to go Sportsman about it and ride on knobbies or some type of dual-sport tire. Quality 17-inch supermoto wheels that will last are going to set you back between $800 and $2000 depending on how deep you're going to go at this and whether you want quality and performance or just a good price. Motostrano is a full scale supermoto specialist and we've been involved in Supermoto since it's re-birth in the United States in 2002. We offer complete supermoto wheels made from the finest materials and built by experience wheel builders

Riding the Moustache Samedi 27 2X Tandem Electric Bike

I love riding with my partner and riding by tandem is one of my favorite ways to get around on a Sunday. Touring by tandem is literally twice as fun as riding solo,when you are on a bike with the one you love and the one that loves you. But tandem bikes are rare and excellent electric tandem bikes are even rarer, so I wanted to give you a fresh impression of our ride yesterday on the 2018 MOUSTACHE Samedi 27 X2 tandem . Moustache is a French company, making some of the most innovative ebikes in the world. Their tandem is no exception. This bike comes in two build types, either a smooth tire touring type or a knobby tire off-road type, but the frames, motors and other specs are pretty much the same.  I've ridden tandems for the past few years on road and off road. Yesterday we did a Meet-Up ride with other fellow ebikers in the Sonoma area. Naturally we were the only tandem riders, with others riding solo on their Haibikes, KTM, Giant, Felt and Blix bikes. Out and

The DYU King 750 Fat Tire Electric Bike Is a Lot Of Bike For the Money

You can't beat the planted feeling you get aboard a fat tire ebike. It feels like you could hop off the saddle and walk away and the bike would remain standing. Good shock dampening, great grip on the road, more tire to eat up ruts and curbs.  The DYU King 750 electric bike  is a fat tire ebike that stands out for its good looks and very reasonable price tag.  28 MPH top speeds means this bike can get up hills and maintain speed with ease and I can think of 5 ebikes on the market right now that have similar features and style and sell for nearly $4,000 and you'll pay shipping.  Perhaps best of all is DYU offers a 14 day test ride policy and if you don't like what you get you can send the bike back.
