Strida decals and reflector strip

Postby taichifrank on Sat Apr 27, 2013 1:55 am

Anyone know where I can get a replacement reflector strip and the strida decals? I emailed Ming and Strida USA but no replies?

Hello taichifrank,

welcome at Stridaforum!

That's weird, may I ask, did you use (for Ming) the webform or one of these:

contact@strida.com
ibd.bike@mingcycle.com.tw

Whom did you try to contact in USA?

For the reflecting strip:
You might use this

http://www.wiggle.co.uk/respro-hi-viz-plain-ultra-sticker-sheet/
http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/Models.aspx?ModelID=23560
(Google for "Respro Hi-Viz")

replacement material, it is looking slightly different (no "square" structure) and should be available in white (or silver), black(!) and yellow.*

Are you (your friends, colleagues, relatives) familiar with a PC and a printer?
The Strida logo can be found easily via web search...
You might use self-adhesive printer foils, or, and I believe that's more elegant, use a cutting plotter.
So it is also possible to cut the desired decals out of reflective sheet 8)

Many thanks to Genuine_S here,
I just needed to follow the advice of my dear Japanese friend to achieve decals like shown below:

I do actually know just two persons which I could ask for original spare decals, friends from Taiwan and Hong Kong...not a really quick solution for sure...

*Yes, I do know, these are full sheets (I mean they are A4 size - 210 x 297 mm) and you need a tenth of it for the strip - with decals you need maximal a fourth...
It would be no problem to cut decals and/or pieces of white or black sheets for you, but:
- Postage will be much higher than actual material costs (stripe 20 x ~ 300 mm + 4 logos maybe around 5 €).
- Transportation itself will be problematic because the transfer foil doesn't have much adhesion (single letters, especially the little i-point, might easily peel-off and stick anywhere...)

Best regards,

That looks so slick and pro. I cannot help to dig out this thread.

It's such an interesting option to personalize the Strida. Or for the owners of vintage Stridas. (MK1 bargain owners, I'm looking at you.^^)
