Cool Foldable Strida Bike

There’s plenty of new designs for folding bikes out there, but this one here is very cool. Triangular Bike Strida – designer Mark Sanders.

Sanders’ idea for a folding bicycle came about in 1984 while completing his studies in the Imperial College’s Industrial Design Engineering program in London. His concept revolved around being able to easily transport a bike on the National Rail trains or in the trunk of a compact European car – and the need for a mess-free alternative to the traditional chain drive arose.

Apart from the unusual look, what really stands out is the way it’s so easy to fold up and back together again. Almost a flick of the wrist. It is coming in fab color variations. One of my favorite is the light blue and orange version.
