The Strida prices are a bit steep, aren't they ? I'm seriously thinking of getting one for Milan, one gear is not a probelm here, and it would be the coolest bike in town. No doubt once word got round that I was the Strida Rider, , i'd be sure to get invited to all the best parties.

Dont see many modern folders around here, loads of the old U-frames, with a hinge in the middle, but contempary folders are rare, although i did see a brand new A-Bike in the market, not surprised its being sold, definetley not the bike for for the nasty pave roads hereabouts.
