Strida in the GTA

I just took delivery of my Strida this week, and I absolutely love it.

Any other Strida owners or others considering buying one here in the GTA?

Hi Autoworker, I've never heard of Strida so I looked them up on the web. I have often thought about getting a folding bike to take on holidays. Sometimes it's a pain to take one of my other bikes. Which model did you get? Maybe post a photo. Is it new or used and where did you get it and $?
I notice that we live fairly close and that you are a electrician at GM. I am also a electrician at Kraft in Cobourg until the end of the year when we are closing and am also a married empty nester. I know several electricians that I worked with that have gone to GM over the years. We have a soon to be retired GM worker who has opened a bike shop in Cobourg, sure cuts down on the driving to get to a bike shop.
Happy cycling!

BEWARE!!!

Many of the listings on Craiglist and Kijiji are Chinese knock-offs. Not the real thing. If you want to risk your life going down hill at 50 kph to Chinese quality control, go ahead.

If you want the real thing, go to http://strida.yeahbike.com/ .

Note: I have no affiliation with the above website. Just a satisfied customer.
