Strida 2010 tidbits

Found the following information on

“The LT (for light) will be offered in black or silver, with molded black rims, a less costly saddle and a nylon (rather than cnc’d) bottom bracket.”

“the SX & Duo will also come standard with the new Strida quick release saddle adjustment system … e-for.html

In this Strida LT’s rear wheel photo from a Taiwanese owner, you can see the new frame design: … LB8FY0wcqD

The belt snubber bearing has been moved from behind the freewheel to under. This should improve its belt slip stopping ability, and also make the freewheel less exposed to the elements (dust, water, etc.). So far the redesign is on Strida LT only, but I suspect that it will be used on the 2010 5.x after the old stock runs out.

I bet that rules out backward compatibility with Strida3 drum brakes.

Ouch! that link doesn’t seem to work. :cry:

Mudguard for 18" wheel (finally)

Woo. I’ve upgraded my Strida 5 to 18" but changed back to the 16" as I really need mudguards where I live and the existing ones can’t be used with the larger wheels. Are these new guards available in the UK yet?


No need for an answer :wink:, I see they are on the vanmoof site . . .
