this odd looking bike is designed by Mark Sanders. strange as it is, it certainly grabbed my attention in an instant. this design enables the rider to sit upright, thus giving the rider a good view of the road ahead. seriously, i haven’t seen anything bicycle in such a triangular form. the frame of the STRiDA LT is of lightweight aluminum, while a single speed power is transferred to the rear wheel via a silent greaseless Kevlar belt. so you don’t need but a Harley to have ‘belt drive’ on your two-wheeler. stopping power is in the form cable disc brakes, again, something which you don’t often see on folding bikes.
other features include 16″ nylon wheels, power-coated rustproof aluminum and a luggage rack. the STRiDA LT weighs in at 10kg and it’s available in 5 colors, including 2 fluorescent colors. want one? be prepared to fork out at least US$600 for one. can it hang on the bike shelf? on wait… it doesn’t need to be, it’s a folding bike!
