I have experience with these clones. My judgement is that if you buy one of these, you should be prepared to spend about $150 to upgrade some critical parts - bottom bracket, tires, pedals, etc. Then you'd have a useful, daily riding bike. Still a lot cheaper than the original Strida.
BruceMetras can testify to the same conclusion. He's got his clone in pretty good condition now.
