New Folding Bike Eliminates Pesky Gears

strida 3

Enjoy riding bikes, but hate those annoying gears, and all the space they take up? Well, Strida has an answer to both your problems with their model 3. It has only one gear, equivalent to 4th gear on a ten-speed bike, and folds in seconds to store in very small spaces. It also weighs only 22 pounds, and uses a greaseless Kevlar belt drive, rated for up to 50,000 miles.   The Strida 3 is also rustproof, and the tires can be replaced without moving the wheels.   Available now for $480 from Strida. — Mike Payne
