I have only seen the older black (? series one) Strida here. "Californian Ray" has two but unfortunately I don't have his contact details, he now rides a Moulton APB. I have have been interested in these for some time and have never seen them on the road. The Australian website has not had the Strida 5 listed and I have never had a response to my emails. The Strida 5 s listed on Ebay are from offshore so I don't know how you would go with warranty claims, mind you in Perth you are on your own anyway! They are available in Singapore as well.
Singapore - yes. And considering tiger air is doing periodic specials to Singapore for $50 (return???), one might as well go there. Heck, a strida 5 via ebay is cheaper than a strida 3 Oz strida site. Hmmm
