I position my Strida and A-bike for a comparision. These are my observations:

Pros of A-bike

  1. A-bike is Light! 5kg!
  2. Easy handling, + the handle is easier to fold than strida.
  3. Reflective Tapes are certainly much better in quality.
  4. It fits inside most ragsack bag.
  5. Seat-post is easy to adjust at anytime.
  6. A small bell is included.

Cons of A-bike

  1. Seat is terrible and the bike is not comfortable to travel on any uneven surface.
  2. It is slow but it does pose a bit of danger if you hit a pothole or curb.
  3. I see that the only danger is travelling upslope, you can go on wheelie position very easily, worst if you are carrying a heavy bag.
  4. The brake cables is not any neater than Strida.
  5. Tyre tends to stick to the ground, due to its small size and maneuvering is not easy.
  6. The pedal is somewhat much difficult to fold than strida though design is about the same.
  7. No rear storage rack.
