Pretty interesting for the price. Of course, we can't tell the manufacturing and component quality from the picture.
I don't have problems with the stated 24lb weight. That's only 2 lbs more than the real Strida. The fold, though, is much less elegant, to the point of being marginally useful.
What I do find interesting is the seat design, with the extendable seatpost. This configuration allows more cockpit room without sacrificing leg length. That's an advantage over Strida - where if you want height, you give up length.
If the quality of this bike is any good, it could be an interesting product. At the very least, it'll keep the pricing pressure on Strida. Competition is a good thing from a consumer standpoint.
