    [Strida] Front/rear rack?

    Hello

    I don't know which Strida I might get since I don't know yet what the differences are besides 16/18" wheels.

    One thing that bothers me, though, is the tiny rear-rack: I don't like carrying a backpack.

    Is it possible to install some kind of front and/or rear-rack that can take a 20L backpack or two 10L backpacks?

    Thank you.

    If you're looking for a bike that handles loads, the STRIDA is the wrong bike, IMO.

    If you can live with a messenger bag, doing short rides, and multimode travel/commuting, the STRIDA is a great bike.

    I've seen somebody with a single large rear pannier hanging from the normal Strida rack.

    Thanks for the infos. I'll go check a Strida retailer.
