Strange how they’ve reinforced the tube and stem weld… I wonder why?
With that widened weld, won’t it be uncomfortable to grip the stem while folded? I find it easiest to grip at the wider part of the stem to avoid grabbing the brake cables or the handlebar locking lever.
I see that as the end of the two speed strida model which they have been selling at 1300+!!
anyone would rather pay for the 3 speed over the two speed when it costs less and probably around the same weight also. It won’t replace the 1 speed because of the price difference and for the weight conscious people that love the simplicity of a single speed.
Please not that’s the Taiwan price, I think it cannot be calculated that way.
I mean more important is the info “two LT”.
The usual European price for the LT is around 600 Euros, which means the 3speed might cost around 1200 Euros = 1580 US$!
A brand new LT in Canada is $670 CDN or around the same USD.
So at most around $1300-1400 price is still the same as a duo. There must be alot of tariffs to make the strida that expensive in europe!
Also another weird thing I noticed, the distributor in Ontario Canada and the us Areaware seems to be sold out of stridas, all models!? Yet in my entire life riding my strida I have only seen 1 owner on the road?!!
