Hello everyone. I’m very interested in buying this unique bike, however there are no official distributors or resellers in my country.
However, some of my family members from Belgium will be visiting soon and are willing to take the Strida with them.
Now, I’d like to know what’s the lowest price of the LT and SX in Belgium and from which online store I can order it. The lowest I could find was ~650€ for the LT (with shipping from Germany).
I’ve changed the name of the topic slightly, sorry about that.
However earlier today I found out that one local bike store has one LT in the store. They are selling it for 420€ because it’s been on display for a while, otherwise it’s basically new.
I’m only confused about its color - it’s dark metallic blue, and I’m not seeing it on the official website. Perhaps it’s an older model. If it is, are there any differences compared to the latest version?
Sorry, not sure what you mean with “iteration at the outside”?
You need explanation where the details can be found at the pics?
For my personal meaning there is no essential difference between both frame versions.
If you’re close to the upper weight limit you may prefer the newer one.
In fact are the older frame versions a little bit lighter.
Hi, the dark blue photo you posted of mine is from a EVO. All EVO models have the reinforced frame. In that photo you can see one of the reinforcements that were added, it is the part under the stem which the name Strida Canada touches. It is one of several, another one is the supports added to the locking latch bracket where the bottom tubes clips to the front tube. I hope this helps.
Mr. Krainz, no problem using my photo. This was a standard colour from Strida 3 or 4 years ago. A Strida distributor could order any model of Strida with this colour but I think most were the Lt model. The dark blue looks black until you look closely and when the sun hits it you can see the metallic blue. It was very difficult to show this in a photo.
As BlackStridaAustria has mentioned the things to look for to see the difference in the frames is the support under the stem, the supports added to both sides of locking latch bracket, the added support for the front tube at the front wheel and the bottom bracket redesign.
The easiest way to compare the two frames is the look at where the stem joins the front tube, the new reinforced frame has a added support under the stem, the older frame does not. The two links that BlackStridaAustria posted earlier in the thread show this.
As to value, I am not familiar with European pricing to comment. But I would have no concerns riding a Strida with the earlier frame.
