Small wheels

Every group has one; someone always out for a challenge! While the rest of us rode up the hills on bikes equipped with lots of gears, Eric rode his new aquisition direct from China - a single geared small folding bike designed for city commuting.

I guess I would have to test it first but it just doesn't look right!

Is that a Strida?

They have ones with 2 speeds so easier on the climbs!

I met Mark Sanders at the Taipei Show - great guy and definitely inspirational!

Looks like a workout, especially over those hills

TC - I asked Eric to respond to your question about th Strida. Here's his reply. Gordon

Yes Eric's Bicycle appears to be a very good copy of Strida 5 built on the Chinese Mainland costing RMB600.

What claims to be the "real Strida" is available in a two speed using a Schlumpf two speed planetary crank system at a price of USD1400 built by Ming Cycle Industrial Co., Ltd. Taiwan, R.O.C.

Ming Cycle make what looks like a copy of a Dahon Curve called a Foldy S-Series 7 speed. Will the real bicycles stand up, please.

Cheers
Eric
