One-sentence summary: Riding Strida is fun. Strida is well-suited for urban commuting, especially mixed-mode commuting. The folding operation is very simple and fast, although it is not immediately obvious when you try it for the first time. My commute is about 5 km. Here are some reference times: Train + walking (1.5 km): 30 min Car: Depends hugely on the traffic, 20-35 min. Bike: 20-25 min + the time to change clothes. Train + Strida: 15-20 min. The last combination is very attractive during bad weather, winter or when you need to both dress sharp and visit multiple locations during one working day. In some fortuitous cases it's even faster than taxis. In the context of neat clothes, the belt drive also makes the bike very clean to handle. The lack of chain grease is a huge plus. The cleanness and the low weight make a very carryable bike. Oh, and did I mention the disc brakes? Awesome stopping power. There are some cons to Strida as well. Tall drivers, beware. I am 195cm tall and I can just barely fit in. I would not recommend the bike to anyone taller than me without trying it out first. Note that it is possible to install a bended steer to a Strida, which mitigates the problem. The small wheels also make Strida hard to handle in snowy (or comparable) situations. Even small amounts of snow cause a problem. The freight capacity is rather low. You'll need backbags or messenger bags to carry anything substantial.

Another caveat: over-zealous drivers or ticket inspectors may try to charge you extra for carrying a bike in a bus or in a train. You can circumvent this by buying the carrying bag. Of course the price is longer folding/unfolding times.

This looks like a cool looking bike.
