    There was a post here about these yesterday, in which they seemed to be pretending it's really a Strida; that post was apparently removed by the moderators. Note that the description says the wheels are plastic, "exactly as pictured," and the photo shows metal wheels. Hmmm.

    Seems like it's probably a knockoff. The Strida is a very simple design. How much could they possibly screw it up?

    I'll tell you one thing: If I didn't just buy two new bikes a few months ago I'd be all over this.

    I emailed the seller about replacement parts. I was told if I bought it they would give me the name of the manufacturer in China. So if you buy one you should hope that it has parts interchangable with strida.
    2000 Montague CX, I do not recommend it, but still ride it.
    Strida 3, I recommend it for rides < 10mi wo steep hills.
    2006 Rowbike 720 Sport, I recommend it as an exercise bike.
    1996 Birdy, Recommend.
    Wieleder CARiBIKE (folding), decent frame.

    The auction ended with a buy-it-now purchase. I emailed the buyer and invited them to comment about the bike here when they got it.
