The Carryme unfortunately has caliper brakes, but the wheels don't seem to get as dirty as they do with larger wheels, maybe because there's simply less surface area for the dirt to cling to and, subsequently, rub off of.

the strida also has discs all around, but in practice, the single gearing doesn't really allow it to get fast enough to really shave off a whole lot from them.
either the brakes are really good, or the bike isn't that fast, but the combination of the 2 concludes that the pads on here will probably last the life of the bike translating into minimal dust released with each stop.
Yeah, I forgot about that. So, in your opinion the discs on the Strida 5 are not dirtier than the hubs on the Strida 3?
