Long term Strida LT owner .... upgrades

Postby Matt_H on Mon Jun 29, 2020 7:02 pm


I’ve had a lovely white Strida LT for a good 5 years now , imm6ft and with the bendy handlebar kit it fits beautifully

I was wondering where you guys get parts from as it probably needs a little love.

I was also considering a gear conversion and bigger wheels what are my options?

I’ve got the plastic 16” wheels so these aren’t ripe for rebuilding with a bigger rim

I see my gear options as the two speed schlump/ATS DRIVE or the replacement bottom arm with 3sp sturmey archer drive

What are everyone’s thoughts on a way forward?

Hi Matt,

welcome at Stridaforum :D

The Schlumpf kit for Strida is not any longer available while the ATS kit still is.

The alternative to the Sturmey Archer drive is nowadays the efneo GTRO:

Kind regards,

Hi Matt, yes I stock many Strida parts and thank you Chris for providing Matt a link. Also you may be interested in this post regarding the Efneo three speed drive, I do plan on stocking the Efneo gearbox for Strida owners soon.

Cheers, Bill
