Good luck and welcome to the SLO (Strida Like Object) Club.

I have had my SLO 13 months. Like you, I am on the heavier side. Six foot and 14 stones of Prime Pomme!

Only problem I have had was the rear wheel (which needed replacing with a genuine one). I found I was breaking a lot of spokes with the copy wheel. Also one of the pedals has started to make a noise - so I think that's on the way out!

Other than that the bike has given loyal daily service for 13 months now.

I received my SLO today, quality looks good, it came with a bag (which may last the week if I am gentle) and some tools.

I will keep you posted... Trev.

I have ridden my SLO home from work (to my bus stop), a distance of just under 3 miles twice. it feels a bit "loose" to me (workmate reckons it flexes a lot when watching from behind), and the belt seems to jump if I pedal too hard. I do find the bike to be a little nervous/ difficult to control.
One of the folding pedals has expired already, it fell on the road.

I really dont think that this is the folding bike for me... to be fair though, I am at the heavier end of the spectrum, with someone lighter, the bike would be a better thing.

I will fix the pedal over the week end, probably replace them with stubby pedals... I will also be looking for a more sturdy folder.

To be fair, the bike is a cheap knockoff, not a genuine Strida, and it is not all bad, The way the Strida like object folds is brilliant, it caused a lot of interest when I had it at work, with all comments being positive, but like everyone else I have shown or talked about Strida to, nobody was aware of its' existance.

The buttom tube of an SLO broke suddenly when the owner riding it on a cycle path.

By the way, the same SLO appeared at the event of Ride of Silence in Hong Kong this year.

Amuro, do you have a photo of this damaged bike that shows the steering pin where the bottom tube joins the front tube? The reason I ask is that my *real* Strida recently suffered a very similar break. In my case, the pin was angled back at about 45 degs.
