Stromer’s ST2 S E-Bike brings innovative electronic functions to America

Stromer ST2 S e-bike

Stromer-ST2-S-title-shot

If you’re really interested in technology, you’re probably stoked that e-bikes are bringing some cool new ideas to the marketplace. Even if you’re adamantly against assisted pedalling, it’s pretty nifty to see how companies like Stromer are incorporating electronic features into modern bicycles. Without electronic components it would be tough to make a bike that allows you to ride longer distances, let alone one that tracks your ride stats, monitors service intervals, or hosts anti-theft features.

Swiss e-bike manufacturer Stromer seems quite pleased with itself to announce the availability in the US of their new top of the line ST2 S e-bike. The S model has seen a few upgrades over the base ST2, including XTR Di2 wireless electronic shifting, a 20% larger battery with a range up to 110 miles, and an integrated 1600 lumen Supernova headlight.

But all of this technical innovation certainly does not come cheap, and considering the bike’s overall heft the and lack of a carbon frame, it seems the electronics are largely what you’re paying for…

Springtime brings warmer weather and the desire in us all to get out and ride more. While for most of us that means either hitting the singletrack that finally dried out after winter or getting in long road rides with short sleeves, it is also a good reason to just hop on a simpler bike and cruise around town with our friends. That’s where State Bicycle’s new The Atlantic comes in. The affordable fixie has a pale pink paintjob, with white on dark navy polka dot stays and fork legs that just puts us in the mood for a leisurely spin…

Cannondale Quick flat bar road hybrid gets leaner & faster

Cannondale_hybrid-fitness-bike_Quick_non-driveside-options

Cannondale_hybrid-fitness-bike_Quick_cornering

While most traditional hybrids blend the durability and upright ride of mountain bikes with the smooth, narrower tires of a road bike, there tends to be a lot of compromise getting something in between. The result is often an overbuilt bike that can stand up to almost any riding abuse, but ends up being rather heavy and with a harsh ride.

The latest Cannondale Quick tries to solve all of those concerns in a light, fast moving bike that they think will help motivate those cyclists who just want to get out and improve their fitness. As more folks take up cycling to improve their health, or even just see a bike as a more rational way to get back and forth from the gym, a bike like the Quick offers a lot of promise. Jump past the break to get a look at the details, and some of the many build options Cannondale has at every price level, from really low-cost up to a Shimano 105 build with hydraulic disc brakes…
