When Strida 3.2 encountered CarryMe DS
 
I think this is a sequel of that post on abikecentral.com :P

Last Friday night, when I rode my Strida from my parents' home to my home, I met my neighbor, Burningwood riding his CarryMe DS on the cycleway...
Of course, I have taken some photos comparing the bikes again.

Thanks for these pictures. I wonder about their differences.
The Strida and the Carryme have very different angles on
the steering. Could that indicate I will have less problem with
the Carryme compared to how much trouble me had with getting
along trying to ride the Strida 3.2? Amuro, you have ride both
of them. Could you tell me how the Carryme behave.

It should be less problematic to get balance on?

Maybe you'll have less problem with the CarryMe on balance, I think.
However, due to your height (I remember you told me that you'are about 195cm tall) your knee may hit the handle bar easily when you are turning. Therefore, you have to use the "leaning technique" to overcome the abovementioned problem.
I used to ride my Strida on the corridor outside my apartment when I've just unpacked it from the box. I encountered the same problem on steering. However, when I took the bike outside and cycled it around, I found I got used to it very quickly (just few seconds).
My neighbor, Burningwood tried my Strida when I met him. He also got used to it very quickly and told me that riding a Strida is more comfortable and relex than his expectation.

The one in the photo is not me :p
I'm the one who took this photo.
I never do wheelies on bikes. ;)

thanks for the great pix.

Disappointed that you can't wear loose clothing with the Strida. I liked it because of the belt drive. I figured that you could wear slacks and other casual type clothing.

I think it is just a 'Health & Safety' thing, tho my youngest son Jac once caught his trousers in between the belt & the pulley (shellsuit type) it ripped the black outside layer off and left the white net liner in place, the rest of the family fell off our bikes laughing! :roflmao::roflmao::roflmao::lol:

I think this is a useful accessory for riding Strida or any other bikes when you're wearing loose clothing.

Exactly. A Strida rider can wear almost anything - or nothing ;-)

(They're all wearing clothes of some sort, & doing some nice manoeuvres one might not envisage on a Strida ;-))

I test rode the CarryMe last weekend and came away disapointed. The bike had a lot of flex and felt kind of flimsy. I don't know but it was faster and safer than the A-Bike. I cannot recommend the A-Bike at all and find it dangerous to ride because of the super small wheel. The CarryMe is faster than the A-Bike and rolls better although it's not faster than the Strida.

What surprised me was the front wheel of the the CarryMe was not as nervous as the Strida. I think Strida should do something about the front fork to stabalize the ride but it's not really that much of a problem. If you can afford it, get the Strida.
