It seems the Strida is typically featured in the U.S. as a designer fashion item, not as a bike. I’ve seen it in the MoMa, Design Within Reach, Hammacher-Schlemmer, etc. catalogs. The above article places the Strida in a picture among Vuitton, Armani and J. Crew items. Is the Strida sold this way in Asia and Europe or is it featured more as a clever folding bike?

Yes, the situation is almost the same here in Hong Kong. :frowning:
This is the website of one of the main retailers of Strida here. :confused:
