Product Description

The first completely new bicycle geometry in 95 years. Inside a triangular frame of lightweight aluminum, power is transferred to the rear wheel via a silent clean Kevlar belt. Handlebars are mounted horizontally so the rider can sit comfortably upright with an excellent view of the road. The genius of the triangular frame is that it can quickly fold. In five seconds, you have a light, compact form that you can easily wheel, stow in a closet, load in your car or take on the train.

I bought two of these LTs, one red and one silver. The bikes were easy to put together (attach the seat and rack) and everything you need comes in the box. You will probably need to inflate the tires, both of the bikes we received had very little tire pressure. The red color was more of a scarlet red. There is a reflective strip on the front frame tube, on the silver bike its not as noticeable, however it does stick out on the red frame... just something to consider when picking a colored frame.

I am 6' tall, with an inseam of about 33" and with the seat adjusted to where I am sorta tip toeing when stopped, seat as far back on the rails as can go, I find just enough room for my knees when riding. If I try and exaggerate my pedaling I can get my knees to touch my thumbs. I recently bought the extended handle bars, just havent put them on yet. Not sure if I want to go through the hassle (if it ain't broke, dont fix it kinda thing).

Steering is sensitive and it took a little bit to get used to. Riding with one hand is difficult and not something I would recommend until you've really gotten the hang of the quick steering.

The build quality is solid. The bike is light and easy to carry, both folded and unfolded. The belt drive is clean and quiet. I have noticed some noise when pedaling uphill, but from what I have read on forums it's just the metal freewheel and not necessarily anything to worry about... I dont hear it any other time.

I did replace the seat. The stock seat is fine for short distances, however you feel every bump and crack in the road. I bought the Velo Newport-S4 seat thru an Amazon merchant. Same brand as the Strida seat, only its a bit wider and has springs to absorb the shock of bumps in the road.

Color Name: Neon Green Verified Purchase
Ever have problems finding a parking space near your destination? Ever need to drop the car off at the auto shop several miles from work? This bike is the perfect range extender, perfectly filling the gap between walking and driving.

Some comments: The gearing is low for easy low-speed maneuvering. I found myself wanting a higher gear for longer distances on flat terrain. This is not a day-to-day commuter for that reason, unless you need to carry your bike on public transit or similar.

The steering is really quick and takes some getting used to. The handling feels quite squirrelly until you get used to it, and even then riding in a perfectly straight line is much more difficult than on a normal bike. The brakes work really well.

I'm 6'1", and the bike doesn't feel too cramped. Feels strange, but it's do-able.

The neon green color is awesome -- I get lots of comments and complements. If you're going to have a strange-looking bike, you might as well flaunt it.

absolutely don't try wheelies or track stands -- you'll hurt yourself.

This is one of the best folding bikes on the market. It's original, high-tech, pretty and easy to carry on/off the bus or subway metro. After it folds, it looks like a unicycle. It's very small to put into any trunk. It takes only 3 steps to fold or unfold the bike. You can do it in 5 seconds but you better watch the video from YouTube first . The user manual has only instructions in pictures without a single word. It's hard to understand for the first timer.

The riding is OK. Since the front wheel is light and handle bar is short, it's not as easy as regular bike to ride. You tend to over-control the directions. Over all, it is an excellent folding bike. You better get a good steel lock to lock it.

Be ware of the counterfeit version from other sellers and those are junks.

I actually own the Strida 5.0, which is the predecessor to this one. Identical bike, but the manufacturer changed the wheels from a traditional spoked one to the Mags used on the LT. This was done so they could offer a durable bike at a lower price point.

I've owned several folding bikes (including several Dahons, an Strida II, an imitation Strida, a Brompton) and now the Strida 5.0. So you can see, I've had some experience with bikes. Like all folding bikes, there are compromises in how they perform. For my long bike tours, mountain biking, or century bike rides, I prefer something else. But for short distances, popping to the store, or commuting a folder is what I grab all the time.

And with all these other bikes, I keep on returning to the Strida. Its the one I grab most. Why? Because it folds in a flash, and once its folded, you can just roll it along. I can't overstate the ease that this offers. Popping over to the store to pick up a few items? Throw on a back pack, walk down the aisles rolling the Strida. No fuss, no muss. Hopping on a bus/train? The belt drive means no grease on other passengers, and the stupid little handle end loops allow you to lock the wheels in place. The Strida then becomes a very easy to manage "stick" that fits between my legs when sitting, or can often be put overhead into the luggage rack.

It does have its liabilities:
- Its an odd bike to set up, sliding the seat up and down the tube. Its ride ride is a bit different, even for a folding bike. It feels a bit twitchy ("responsive") while due to the head angle, it also feels a bit slow. Very odd.
- I sometimes miss the extra gears, especially when going over one of NYCs bridges.
- You have to enter the bike from the rear.
