Which Strida should I get?

Hello, very informative site!

I came across a Strida in Seoul and was surprised at how cool it was! Never saw anything like it and thought I had to have it! :slight_smile:
I am deciding between the Strida 5.0 SX or the 5.1

A few questions- will the 18" wheels of the SX be disadvantageous for commuting/packing/storage or not enough difference and worth it?

Are the differences between the 5.0 and 5.1 worth getting the 5.1?

Is the Anniversary model worth the extra money? It is quite a bit more than the normal 5.1

It’s funny, I have seen the CTRider and SFolding 7.0 knockoffs available for a fraction of the price but decided to stick to the original because it’s such a unique idea.

any help would be appreciated

Do you have any links or pictures ?
because strida model numbers seem to vary from country to country. The 18in wheels will give a higher gearing ( of 18/16 … or whatever the actual tyres used measure).

FWIW The original 16in mudguards DO fit on 18in wheels see … picasaweb.google.co.uk/MAS.DPL/S … 7358319218

thanks for the info. it looks like the SX might be good with little compromise with regards to storage…

Interesting. Further on in that photo set, it says that the mud guards were adjusted with a hair dryer. I wonder what that means, exactly?

Still, it looks like there could be potential for more spray coming off the back guard since it does not extend as far around the wheel towards the ground as it does on a 16" wheel.

hair dryer to melt the plastic enough to mold/bend it slightly
