    Strida In Olympic Protest

    Somehow a Strida got involved in a fight that broke out in Seoul during an Olympic torch relay event.

    One is a Chinese out cheering for the event kicking a Korean protesting against it and the other is/maybe the Korean protestor lifting up the Strida.

    One more for my photo collection of folding bicycles in unlikely scenarios.

    That kind of high flying kick only adds to the stereotype... That could be a good advert. for Strida though, touting it's durability and all...
    I like to ride bikes. I miss living in the city though, where it was all a bike's ride away. City dwellers: appreciate it. :D

    Bloody hoodlums attacking the poor strider rider as a mob!

    Looks like the poor little chap should have had a long screwdriver about his bike somewhere and stabbed the bast**ds.

    I would have.

    That dude got into the fight with a reason. The following pictures were taken before he got chased and kicked.

    If any lesson can be learned from this whole Olympic protest thing, that is not to trust any picture easily.

    CNN is chopping pictures just to give you a different impression.
    Some German TV stations took a much easier route. They just used pictures of Nepalese police beating up Tibetans and said it was Chinese police cracking down the protesters.

    Nevertheless, still, very nice Strida and very rugged as the owner seems to be willing to toss it as a weapon.
