Well after a lot of research here and all over; I ordered a Strida 5.0 last night. My home is in Orlando, but my job is in Chicago so for the next 6 months I will be commuting on CTA/Metra/Pace busses in the Chicago area. I haven't been on a bike in years but I'm excited about the prospect.

I'm really looking forward to it and am moving into my apt next week. Thanks for all the great info here!

Hello JSnow789, the Strida looks like a mechanical marvel! It looks as if you will enjoy having it with you in Chicago, and it's certainly better than having a car.

Welcome to BF, and feel free to PM me with any questions !

Welcome to the forums. Congrats on the new Strida and moving to a city where you can commute by mass transit/bike.
