Strida 5.0 Polished Aluminum
The Strida 5.0 is a single speed Strida Folding bike. This Polished Aluminum Strida is a very classic Strida with a clear coat finish applied to the aluminum frame. The Strida 5.0 offers several upgrades from the Strida Lt. The upgrades include, Q/R seat mount, 16 metal spoke wheels, alloy rear rack and a more comfortable saddle. The Strida 5.0 like all Strida Canada Strida bikes includes a kickstand.
The most noticeable upgrade is the 16 inch spoke wheels. The advantage of the Strida 5.0 spoke wheels is the option of mounting wide tires. The metal spoke wheels have a wider rim than the Strida Lt plastic wheels. The wider rims makes it possible to mount wider tires. Wider tire options include the Schwalbe Big Apple and the Schwalbe Marathon. Upgrading from the Strida standard 305 x 50 16 inch tires can improve the ride and stability depending on the conditions you may be riding in. The Schwalbe Big Apple is a wide suspension tire. The Schwalbe Marathon is wider, has a deeper tread and is more puncture resistant. Both Schwalbe tires are larger in diameter than the standard Strida 16 inch tire. A larger diameter tire will provide more speed.
The Strida 5.0 can be upgraded to a Strida Sx easily by swapping the 16 inch wheels and fenders for 18 inch. Please contact me for a price and availability for this upgrade.
