Was thinking of checking out some foldies at Flying Ball.

Was at Flying Ball a few weeks back. They have BF Tikit, Pashley TSR, and Airnimal in the racks; and a Moulton NS hanging on the wall. Among other stuff they have Tune componets, and even some Airnimal frames laying about. Also have several ultralight Storck roadies. Really nice guys there.

Of course, when they are completely folded.

Very cool pic!

I had my red Strida out this weekend at the Chicago Blues Festival and it was a joy to have around. Also garnered a lot of attention since they are not very well known here. I got my first flat on the way home yesterday-which is fine because it means I was out enjoying my bike. I just folded her up and wheeled her onto the train so no big deal.

It is obvious that Strida's are avalable all over the world. I was thinking of buying one because they would make getting to and from bus stops easier. Has anyone had any problems with them, machanical or otherwise?

Well, it would be impossible to have a product with zero problems. So perhaps the question is, is it a reliable bike?

Dunno

Nice photo!

We stayed a few nights at the Kowloon Shangri-La a few years back on the way into China proper for the adoption of our second daughter. We have been to HK three times over the past 20 years, and always enjoy the experience.
