Strida TriLock Rear Hinge System
Designed by Mark Sanders, manufactured and packaged in Austria, the new Strida TriLock rear hinge system solves an issue many Strida owners have struggled with, a loose and creaky rear hinge joint.
The TriLock kit includes, 1 TriLock nut (anodized aluminum), 1 Allen set screw M 8 x 25 mm (stainless steel), 3 Allen set screws M 4 x 8 mm (stainless steel), 1 Cup spring (steel), 1 Igus W300 thrust washer (plastic)
For many years Strida owners have struggled with the weakness of the design of the Strida rear hinge. This is something I and many others have seen as an issue that the manufacture has not addressed. I wrote this post that explains the problem and with help from others in the Strida community offered a solution. But while this first solution has worked for many it did have it’s faults.
Thanks to Mark Sanders, the original designer of the Strida bike, Strida owners now have a solution that is easy to install, is adjustable and eliminates the wear on the Strida bottom tube.
