I’m a mechanic, working on a friend’s Strida. I’ve never worked on a Strida before.
I managed to true the rear wheel. That was a challenge, because it’s small, and because it looked too hard to remove from the bike.
My problem is that in trying to lubricate the rear brake cable, I removed the ball from the socket at the top of the frame. That part was hard, and now I can’t get the ball back in. I’ve used extreme force, and that’s clearly not the answer. There must be a technique of finesse.
Also, I would love to replace the rear brake cable housing, but am I asking for more trouble?
