The constant drum-beat / musak played throughout this film is highly irritating and serves no purpose whatsoever other than to distract the attention from the information that the film should be providing. Get rid of all this extraneous noise. I simply cannot watch The Gadget Show because of the techno-beat musak that your producers seem obsessed with.

What about the Brompton? http://www.brompton.co.uk/ They fold smaller than the bikes you had in test and there is a wide choice of options.

I'm disappointed to see the Strida rated so low in the segment. I've ridden both the Strida and Brompton and while I agree that the latter provides a traditionally more comfortable ride, the Strida does have it's advantages which---believe it or not---includes the sensitive handling and short wheel base that allows it to turn sharper corners. It's also worth mentioning that the Strida currently has an EVO model that comes with 3 gears. The Strida has a short learning curve to ride confidently but once you do, it's a really fun ride and it doesn't hurt that you can fold and unfold it in a matter of seconds.
