HOW IT WORKS?
Is STRiDA rust-proof?
While no bike is completely rustproof, STRiDA is as rustproof as a bicycle can be.
Instead of a chain, STRiDA uses a greaseless kevlar belt drive.
The entire frame of STRiDA is 7000-series aluminum, which is the same material found in sailboat masts.
Moreover, hardware of STRiDA is all either stainless steel or treated steel;cables are all completely encased in protective and lubricated cable housing;
Most of the cable is itself inside the frame.
Bitter End Yacht Club in the British Virgin Islands kept two STRiDA at their premise:
After a year in sun and salt air, they reported no significant rusting anywhere on the bike.
How long will the Kevlar belt last?
Kevlar is used to make combat helmets and bulletproof vests. our belt has been high-torque, high-heat, and high-speed tested in automobile engines to last 50,000 miles. that’s a lot of riding. (they can also be found in auto parts stores.)
Is STRiDA’s frame sturdy?
STRiDA’s frame is very strong.
STRiDA uses nature’s strongest geometric form: triangle.
The bike easily surpasses all frame strength criteria developed by the British Standards Institute and Consumer Products Safety Commission(CPSC).
Is single-speed bike like STRiDA a bad choice to climb hills?
Not at all, unless all you do is climb steep hills. STRiDA travels easily across short distances at an average speed of 10-12 mph (15-20 kph). As Paul Taylor, editor and columnist of Financial Times, observed about our bike. It is quite easy to ride once you get going. gears would help on hills, but i did not find their absence as much of a handicap as i had expected.
