Many of us have been contemplating whether or not we can actually pull off riding a bike to work. Some of us will actually do it. For you few brave souls may I suggest the fifth installment of the STRiDA folding bicycle. After two decades of awards and critical acclaim STRiDA has made few modifications to this incredible innovation. The body of the 5.0 is composed of 7000 Series Powder-Coated Rustproof Aluminum with a Kevlar Greaseless Belt drive train. This tiny vehicle weighs only 19.4 lbs, but can tote a 30 lb load on it’s rack and maxes out at about 250 lbs total. Completely folded the bike measures 45â€ x 20â€ x 9â€, which might fit comfortably in a cubicle or under a desk.
