Same dealer:
Strida LT 639 Euro...

Calculating ~ 600 for LT and ~ 700 (at least) for the Schlumpf... :roll:

And what about custom's duty?


Kind regards,

I didn't had to pay custom duty when I brought my Strida LT from Singapore to here (France). I was with my wife and kid with 13 languages (including OTTO massage chair, Strida LT, and bunch of baby stuff). Customs at CDG airport are not strict I guess.

700+ for the Schlumpf is cheaper than 1250 for the evo at this time for me... I guess i will go for it...

The difference though is that, the EVO from Singapore has 16" wheels and from France has 18" wheels, does this update cost 300SGD?

Please may I ask why do you think so?
(I thought EVO means automatically 18 inch wheels :?: )

although it is not indicated here, I'm pretty sure that this is 16", i tested this exact bike and compared it to LT.

You're right, this is an EVO on 16" wheels.
Supposing these are original wheels, it must be 16 inch because there are 12 spoke pairs per wheel visible,
18 inch are built with 18 pairs (36 spokes).

Perhaps the store/workshop owner could be asked, I bet on exchanged wheels...

Oh!
I think that's a highly complex question which cannot be answered with "this" or "that".
Depending on many different factors like the road surface, the required ability to climb uphill, the desired grade of comfort, the size and also weight of the rider, leg strength and so on it's highly recommended to configure tyres and their sizes for each user individually, I'm sure.

Please try the forum search to find several angles of sight, maybe first the words:
tyre, tire, Kojak, Innova, Big Apple, Kenda, Marathon...

18" wheels of course if you want taller gearing and looking for higher cruise speed range.

Availability and price for Europe unknown so far...

Surprisingly was the new beltwheel already seen before at the Eurobike 2013,
on this - very special! - Strida, shown at the haberstock mobility booth.

Image

This bike belongs to Mr. Schlumpf himself!!! 8)
(It was lent to Haberstock because they didn't have a "platform" to present the new 80 teeth beltwheel.)
