    That looks like a 6th year engineering project. Steering must be interesting.

    That thing is a wreck, crashed landed back in the 60's , we don't even know if it's capable of flying!

    Your google fu is excellent. They're a mad looking thing but seem to have folded or at least very bespoke :Dhttps://www.strida.com/

    Someone's missing it anyway, I see one popped up on adverts 5 years ago https://www.adverts.ie/electric-folding-bikes/strida-5-0-folding-bicycle/8793564

    I probably would for the uniqueness but I'd imagine an A&E visit would be in a new owners future.

    A guy I worked with had one for a bike-dart-bike commute so I had a go. Bit weird but it cycled fine. More upright than my Brompton.

    I got bought a Strida about a year ago, it is absolutely brilliant! Really handy around town and on the Luas. Its comfortable, very nippy and highly maneuverable. Its a little strange at first a bit like a 2 wheel go-kart, twitchy steering and you cant cycle with no-hands. It folds and unfolds in 10secs!

    I took it on the Luas to Brides Glen and then cycled to Ballycorus and from there to Greystones via Bray and back to the City Centre on the Dart. It was definitely not what the bike was designed for but it was doable, though the climb over Bray head was hard work with one gear. I believe there is a three speed version which might make hills a little easier. I dont think its ever going to be suitable for much more than 15km and while I can get it up pretty steep hills its a bit of a strain....on me and the bike.

    Neighbour is a truck driver, spends 4 weeks at a time tramping around the Continent.

    Has one of these in the truck cab so that he can whizz around wherever he ends up on a 24 hour layover.
