Brian, Do you give free try-outs?

Frank, absolutely. No charge. The stretch of Lake Drive by my house is fairly flat, mild ups and downs. Come on by and do some StreetStriding.

I've had my 8-speed for 2 years and though it doesn't have an "easy fold", I've learned how to undo the three bolts rather quickly and fold it up to transport, in my HHR (small crossover vehicle) with the backseats folded down. I do have to move the passenger seat forward to do it and it was originally difficult, but I've got it down to a routine. Just as easy to put it back together. I only wish the StreetStrider rack would fold up when not in use. My car won't fit in my garage if I add the rack.

I bought 2 of the 3 speeds. In Florida I figured that would be enough. They are a great and fun workout. We got them to rent at my outfitter shop. Everyone that tires it, is comfortable within a few minutes. Awesome machine

i agree with the review.. IF you dont find that side to side motion -you will get sore calves.

I just tried the Streetstrider for the first time, the 8 gear Summit, and I'll have to say, it's an awesome workout. I was given one by my sister in law, and I'll soon be riding everyday, I'm sure. I'm a 56 year old male and am looking forward to this continued experience.

Hills? Able to keep striding along?

Sarah, at the semi-old age of 67, I'm able to go up most of the hills in the rural'ish park where I do my Streetstriding.

That said, I do get off and briefly push the Streetstrider three times in my 40 minute, 6.5 mile or so route. I've learned that even though I can get up those inclines, it isn't that good for my body. So rather than run the risk of getting sore muscles from overdoing things, I now walk in a few places where I used to put the bike in gear 1 and power my way up.

With the 8-speed, there's a good ability to go up mild hills. You aren't going to ride up Pike's Peak on a Streetstrider, because that's not what it is designed for. It's an exercise bike that is fun to ride. It took me a few weeks to realize this fully.

When it feels a bit difficult to ride -- like when I'm going against the wind (while standing up, of course), or going up a small hill -- this is what it's supposed to do. If it didn't challenge my lungs and muscles, it wouldn't be a good exercise bike.

People on road and mountain bikes pass me all the time. But when they do, I think, "I'm getting a much better workout than they are." While having just as much, or more, fun. After two years of riding my Streetstrider, it's still highly enjoyable to hop on. Even in the rain and cold.

You need a promotion video showing street-strider working-outings and the especial relevance thereof to body core-muscle exercise, halting drooping.

Being a London Resident where opposition to being able to get not just a Street-Strider, but especially (seconds) CHAINLESS, shaft-drive cycles, is fast and furious, no doubt part of "sanctions" as anti- marketing multi ploy slides.
How can I get a jet (small) one to Pimlico; Just over the Thames is Battersea Park where the London Recumbents are based and therefore maybe you can utilise jet-striders at this site to partially replace the "lay backs" (cumbent cycles) which are all very well but less crucial than the advent of roaming exercise cycles.
Shaft drive or CHAINLESS cycles are another world. They are so neat. Again an available used selection is what is needed to rapido-promote the Tempo (good model variety).
It has been depressing having the Millenia stadium in Battersea Park deny that they said a gymnasium street-strider would be installed by now, and that was two years ago at least. Why are folk so hassadic?

Keep up the marvelous, future beconing Elliptical bike promotions. Thank you.
