And the answer direct from Strida Customer Service (UK) is:
...this is a strida2 used a part of the Emmy 2000 gift basket. nothing is special, other that it received lots of TLC before shipping. ...
A reserve of 450 is a bit high for a Strida 2, even if it was briefly owned by a celebrity. Might be worth a bit more if there was some indication that it was frequently used and appreciated by said celebrity, but it sounds like a cast off.

Only thing limited aobut a Strida is its weight capacity, comfortable top speed and range. It is lke the Smart 4/2 of bicycles.

On the other hand, a Smart Car or a Strida is sometimes the best tool for the job :)
But bringing this back to the original subject, does anyone here think ANY bike, folding or otherwise, than it's "normal" resale value, for either
1) Having a number tag on it representing a limited series, or
2) Having belonged to a celebrity, however briefly.
Not me. I don't even know who the previous "owner" of this bike is - I don't watch television.
I wouldn't mind having another Strida in the shed (even a mk2), - but not for this seller's reserve of $450. My new Srrida 3 was less than that.
