broken back wheel strida 1 or 2

Hallo!
I have got a very cheep strida 1 or 2. My problem is: the backwheel is totaly broken. that means:

* the "crown" from the "click-" closing,
* the ring which should hold the belt,
* and one of the plasticspokes too...

The spoke I could fix for a while I think. The bad thing is the ring...

The only strida shop here in Vienna - Austria, told me, that from netherlands they can not get a new wheel, because new models have new systems by wheel boss screw and now they have other brakes too...

Is there anybody who knows what I can do / where I can get a new, or second-hand wheel?
Every tip is welcome!
Thanks, Dony

A: That's possible, but Strida Europe can purchase new parts for these first models. Please ask your dealer for the opportunities. But there's a chance you can't get it fixed due the lack of spareparts for these types world wide.

Q: I have a defective Strida 3. Do I have to be afraid that spareparts won't available?
A: No, don't worry. However we don't sell this product anymore, spareparts are always on stock.

Q: What are the differences between the Strida 1 and 2?
A: The Strida 2 is equipped with a plastic BB mountings instead of aluminium
The steering is fixed to the front tube with 2 welded plates (just like Strida 3 and 5).


...but Strida Europe can purchase... :roll:


MK1 and MK2 parts pics are here:

Due to forum setting constraints, only administrators and moderators can upload photos directly to a post. :oops:

However, you can still post photos here by uploading the photos to somewhere on the internet and using the [img][/img] tags to add them to a post. :wink:

Not really... :?
But it might be that I've spent more time in Strida research than you...that's all :)
(And more often tried to squeeze out Amuropedia... :lol: )

However, I do know that it is a bit tricky at the beginning to load up pics, hope this will help:

Hi Joaogam,

The problem is, that from this old Numbers, the new owner will not find new spares like screws, wheels, and so on. I asked all over the world, from Austria to Netherlands and to China and also the inventor personal could not help.

From this view, I think your friend should not ask for much. If you red this page and the problems I got, you will understand... I paid about € 130 for a good looking bike. I thought it was a fair price, but I did not know how old the materials are (The strida 1 was produced about 20 years ago!). So in the first week of using, things broke...

At least I found a polish locksmith who could help me with the ring (see below). It was a hard work and nobody can tell, when the time for the next part will come... And I am still looking out, to get a new unbroken back wheel, I myself fixed temporary.

So this is my story. Was a big disappointment! I hope you can crab my message for a fair selling.

With nice greetings and best regards,
Dony
