Buying a Strida

Postby CRIBEIRO on Sat Jan 18, 2020 9:49 pm

[img]Greetings to all strida fans and specialists,

I am from Lisbon, Portugal, Europe, and thinking on buying a strida and join you guys.
I am a fan of this bikes long time ago when a friend of mine had one bought by his father (an MK1 model). Since then I became a fan.

Nowadays I am thinking of buying one but I am not sure which model is the best for me.
I like the evo model but as I am thinking on buying a second hand one, I didn’t found an evo model yet.

I am thinking on buying the strida I send 2 photos attached but my doubts are growing and I ask you guys some help with opinions and answering the following questions:
1. What model is the one in the photos;
2. The selling price for this second hand strida is €300. Is it a good price?
3. Will I have difficulties on getting spare parts if I need to this bike. I’ve heard that MK1 parts are difficult to get.

I need to close this deal in the next 2 days, so I thank in advance your opinions, informations, and answers.

Thank you,
César

Hi Cesar,

yes, thanks; I've already replied also in private.

Well, that looks like a fake Strida!
Please be aware and check the seller's seriosity.

We call this bikes "SLO" - for Strida - like - object...

Maybe you can ask the seller for more, bigger images...showing for example the brake calipers or the serial number at the underside of the bottom tube.

Cheers,

Chris
