I'm 65 and had a mild stroke 3 years ago. Got a little weakness in the left leg, but nothing major. I test rode the Rad Runner Plus and was just about ready to order one, in spite of some of the things I didn't like about it. Read about the ST2 and test rode it. BAM! What a difference! Went home and ordered one that's scheduled to arrive today. Can't wait!

I ride a motorcycle (Honda Shadow Aero) and it was important that I get one that I could flat foot at stops. To mount the Shadow, I stand at the left side, grab my right leg and throw it over. Not very graceful, it compensates for my lack of flexibility. So when I went shopping for an ebike I wanted something that was easy to get on and off and give me some stability at stops.

I test rode the City and Runner, but it wasn't until I rode the ST that I knew I had found the right bike.

In preparation, I did buy a Cloud-9 seat. I wasn't impressed with any of the seats on the other ebikes I test road.

So I guess the short answer to this topic's subject "Who is it for?", is that the ST2 is just right for someone like me.
