Strida 3 Brakes

Postby quixoticgeek on Tue Jan 24, 2017 12:09 am

I need to replace the front and rear brakes on a Strida 3, but I'm struggling to find where I can buy the parts necessary to do so.

Does anyone know of anywhere in Europe that sells the parts necessary to restore the brakes to fully functioning order?

Thanks

J

Did you try here?
https://www.velorution.com/

Back then sold Strida France some of the ancient parts but I'm afraid there isn't anything left over.
You need to ask them yourselves:
http://strida.fr/

There is still an official source for that part; unfortunately not in Europe, but in Korea:

I'm definitely not sure if the brake assembly is all you need for flawless function.

But I do have a few of these brake assemblies laying around here in Vienna 8)
Maybe you want to mail me? :mrgreen:

Hi J, i bought 2 from Korea and they work fine. Nice and shiny and cheap too. You can also flip over the brake activation levers to get more use of the thick brake shoes.

Hi,

I'm in need for new brake shoes (or a complete assembly) for just the rear wheel of my Strida 3. I went to the Korean site, but since I couldn't find a way to get the site in English and I have no idea what the Korean text means. I live in the Netherlands and I wonder if someone in Europe could supply me with a new brake. Otherwise it might be an option to have the brake shoes refurbished, but then I'd need to know how thick they should be...

Thanks,
Oskar.

Of je kan Google Chrome gebruiken; daarin worden internetpagina's automatisch vertaald, als je dat wil!

In plain English:
Or you can use Google Chrome; internetpages are automatically translated, if you want!

But I'm sure Chris will have a solution for you!

Don't forget: when you want to import from outside the EU, try to keep the total amount (goods INCLUDING shipment cost!) underneath 22 euro, so that you don't have to pay customs nor taxes.

To be honest: I was afraid for that. But the Google Translations are very good, in fact. Or maybe I used translation from Korean to English? I don't remember.

I even ended up mailing them and I got a correct answer. But before buying I first need to check what exactly is the problem with the brake. And I don't have much time at the moment, so we bought a second hand Strida LT for the moment!

To be honest, too; I've used that function the last time years ago to try reading at the (Chinese) Strida Club...but back then were the results in the best case entertaining, most of that was complete nonsense.

Have a safe ride with your new LT 8)

Cheers,

Chris
