A Strida newbie

Postby Cavboy80 on Sat Aug 04, 2018 2:30 pm

Hi, i have been an admirer of the Strida since i saw one in a museum in Ipswich last year (a mk3 i believe)
Anyway, last weekend i visited Milton Keynes and in their museum was a Mk1....i was allowed a ride and was hooked. That evening i looked on ebay and bought an early Mk1 from Northern Ireland.
Today it arrived in Norfolk and it's brilliant. It's frame number 549 and i have messagered Mark Sanders who confirms it's very early.
It's in pretty good condition and its only going to need light restoration work, i am wanting to retain its originality

I have also just become a Strida newbie :D and my early Strida 2, is in need of some basic TLC.

I'm doing all the simple basics (cleaning, brake cable adjustments, new tyres and lubrication on brake cables, pedals.)

I know the belt is not lubricated, but is there any guide to do and don'ts and any adjustments to keep the bike tip-top functional?

All the old documents are still here;

Here are the direct links, recommendable seems to combine these two

https://issuu.com/mark77a/docs/strida1-owners-manual

https://issuu.com/mark77a/docs/strida3-owners-manual

and don't miss that one:

https://issuu.com/mark77a/docs/strida_tips_v3b_from_mark

That should answer many of your questions - we are still here for the remaining :lol:
