    Strida small riders minimum inside leg length?

    What is the minimum inside leg length? for Strida?
    And what is the lowest setting above ground.
    Which is important for entering the bike and getting off it safely
    for a small rider.

    There exists a small version too doesn't it.
    would be cool to compare specifications for
    same spec on that one.

    Andy ask these questions on the Strida forum but those who own one are
    at sleep at the moment. Them living in Asia.

    Hi,

    My wife is looking to buy a folder and very interested in Strida 5.
    The Strida 5 manual stated minimum height is 145cm.
    What about the minimum inside leg length requirement?
    Also, what is the lowest saddle height (from the ground) that can be adjusted?

    Many thanks for your help.
    Regards,
    Andy
    Hi,

    We can't test ride a Strida, have to order online.
    Have asked both online sellers in UK but no answer.
    Have asked Stirda UK too and no answer.

    I just need
    1. Saddle height from ground at lowest seat setting.
    2. At lowest seat setting, distance from saddle to pedal (pedal at farthest from saddle)

    Many thanks
    Andy
    I guess there are a lot of proud Strida owners here that
    could help Andy out. Looking forward to your kind answers.

    Weakling on behalf of Andy.

    The smallest inseam that a strida could accomodate would be around a 24-26". I set my seat down to the lowest, but found the handlebars a tad high in that posture.

    There is a new strida, the strida BANTAM. i think its designed for more petite riders with smaller 14" rims

    specs arn't confirmed tho...

    Trueno thanks for that info.

    What would the distance to ground be if have it in the lowest practical then?

    I guess Andy and his wife should look for the Bantam version then.

    I think the bantam will be at least 3-5 inches shorter than the normal strida.

    An inseam of less-than 26 inches would probaby not be suitable riding the normal strida.
    althogh I do not know what the bantam inseam range is, yet

    Btw I read that the lowest that the seat can go is having the luggage rack 1/2 inch above the rear fender. So whatever that length is up to the seat
