We are taking a look at the new Durban Bay 6 in the review.

STRiDA LT Folding Bicycle Review – Far From Perfection

November 27, 2018 |

A few weeks ago, I had an opportunity to review the STRiDA SX, the first A-shaped folding bike I had ever used. I had good impressions with that bike and found it one of the best portable solutions. The STRiDA LT is even smaller and cheaper. So what compromises will you have to make when using this bike? Keep reading to find out.

STRiDA LT folding bicycle is another great A-shaped folding bike with an internal cabling and a height adjustable saddle. This type of a folding bike impresses cyclists with its unusual design. It’s worth noting that the bike comes with a triangular frame that is made of aluminum. Other bike’s parts are also made of aluminum. That’s why the bike is lightweight and you’ll definitely find it easy to transport it from one place to another.

Obviously, STRiDA LT folding bicycle has been designed to make it easy for cyclists to enjoy the ride anywhere they want. The bike’s key features also include: STRiDA special belt drive that allows a cyclists to ride up to 50,000 miles, 16 inch mag wheels, mudguards, disc brakes, folding handlebars, folding pedals, reflective Innova tires, etc.

What is great about a triangular frame is that it makes it possible for cyclists to fold (or unfold) the bike very quickly. In fact, the folding (unfolding) process is very simple. So, it will take you only about 5 – 10 seconds to fold (unfold) a bike when such a need arises.

It’s also important for you to know that STRiDA LT folding bicycle is available in five different colors – red, white, black, blue and turquoise. That means that you’ll be able to select a bike that meets your design preferences in the best possible way.

It’s fair to say that STRiDA LT is a light and compact bike that has everything that you need for a comfortable ride. Traveling with this folding bike would never be hard. Keep in mind that it will not take you too long to load a bicycle in your automobile. It’s pretty easy to take a bus on train.

STRiDA SX Folding Bicycle Review – High-Quality Bike with Limited Usage

November 6, 2018 |

Are you a big fan of folding bikes that come with a triangular frame and a short wheelbase? If so, you should definitely pay a close attention to the STRiDA SX folding bike. Today, we are going to review the STRiDA SX folding bike and describe its key features as well as pros and cons in detail.

Once you take a look at the bikes of STRiDA SX series, you’ll quickly find out that bicycles of this type have been designed in an unusual style. You are likely to be highly impressed with the bike’s great design.

It’s crucial for you to know that there are five different styles of the STRiDA folding bikes – 5.0 folding bicycle, C1 carbon fiber folding bicycle, Evo folding bicycle, Lt folding bicycle as well as Sx folding bicycle. Another important thing that you need to be aware of the STRiDA folding bikes is that the bicycles of this series are available in six different colors – silver, matte black, blue, neon green, red, turquoise and white. All of this means that the STRiDA collection gives you a great opportunity to pick the bike that meets your design preferences in the best possible way. Keep in mind that the STRiDA folding bikes have either single speed transmission (STRiDA LT, STRiDA 5.0 as well as STRiDA C1 Carbon Fiber) or three speed transmission (STRiDA SX as well as STRiDA Evo).

Today, we would like to review the STRiDA SX folding bike. In this review, you’ll be able to find the Unboxing and Assembly video, bike’s features and specifications, folding and unfolding video as well as the information on the bike’s performance, pros and cons. Hopefully, this type of review will help you make your own conclusions about the bike.

The STRiDA SX is exactly what I imagined of a folding bike in the first time I heard about the concept. It looks so portable with a weird A-shaped design and many people love it, especially in the UK. Now we have the chance to test the bike in the U.S., let’s see if it could keep up with other folding bike manufacturers here.

It’s worth noting that STRiDA SX is a feature rich folding bike that has everything that’s needed for a comfortable ride. STRiDA SX has aluminum breaks and disc brakes. You need to know that the bike comes with a special belt that makes it possible for you to drive over 50,000 miles. The bicycle has three speed transition. And of course, the STRiDA SX folding bike is not a good option for people who want to travel over long distances. The reality is the bike’s design allows you to travel short distances only.
