Genuine strida

Postby Zippi on Sat May 20, 2017 8:35 am

Hi, my brother has his eye on a strida (Sydney, Australia) and a friend said there is a warning sign/sticker on Strida bikes, saying "wear a helmet. No wheelies. No loose clothing" that is missing from most fakes and may be used to check whether the bike is genuine. Is this valid? Where is this sign? Is it on all models, is the 5 too? Thanks for advice k

Hi Zippi,

looking for an easy detachable sticker to verify a fake Strida seems a bit naive, don't you think so?

There is actually such a sticker at each Strida, it is usually attached at the seat tube, close to the upper ball joint.

I'd look at the bottom tube's underside, close to the rear hinge - here should be the frame number, which fakes normally do not have.
There are also several other signs of a fake; strange brake calipers for example, rippled frame tubes and even parts without function.

We are calling these bikes SLO's - Strida like objects - and you can find much more info by using the forum search with that terms.

Keep Strida Original - say NO to Fakes!

Perhaps you could upload pics of that specific bike, or do you have links to the offer?

Best regards,
