    Been around for well over a decade, the Strida. I remember looking at it in the design module of my degree in '97.
    A whole section of my degree studying bike design! Fantastic, that was.

    Yup, I've ridden both Strida and A-bike (the Strida having the longer pedigree) and I think I'd rather stick needles in my eyes than ride one any distance, but interesting design solutions. The A-bike folds so small - pity it's almost unrideable as a bike!


    I've ridden an Itera as well - like riding a jelly on a bouncy castle...

    I nearly bought an Itera! The ride was...interesting.
    It reminded me of the limerick about a chaplain from Kings, who spoke about heavenly things, but his secret desire, was a boy in the choir, with a bottom like jelly on springs.:sad:

    I still want a Kirk Precision - the cast magnesuim road bike. If Arch tells me she's ridden one of those too, I'll just go sick with jealousy.:ohmy:

    No, you're ok, never ridden a Kirk.

    Not sure I fancy an inflammable bike!:sad:
