StreetStrider Reviews – Sprinter 3r
These StreetStrider reviews are for the Sprinter 3r. The Sprinter 3r features the Shimano Nexus 3-speed transmission, allowing you to climb moderate hills. With the twist grip shifter, you can easily find the perfect gear for your stride. The 70 mm dual front drum brakes and rear caliper brake provide exceptional stopping power. The frame is constructed with aircraft grade aluminum and is incredibly strong, supporting riders up to 350 pounds
Great for a change of pace
I have a bad knee injured in a treadmill accident-have had a couple surgeries. I missed running which I used to do religiously before the accident. I have a nice indoor elliptical but was tired of the same thing everyday. The Street Strider is a nice change to get out doors - I've been using it several times a week, started out the first week about a mile and a half a day and now after 3 weeks I am regularly doing 3-4.5 miles. Still getting used to feet placement-the only problem I've had. Definitely better and more of a workout than a bicycle or swimming.
No joint pains the next morning!
I turn 50 this year and I enjoy (or should I say, enjoyed) running. My feet, knees and hips did not! I guess my Wife was tired of me complaining of my aches and pains, because for Christmas, she gave me a StreetStrider. When I first tried it (for only a short distance), I thought, this is fun and pretty easy. My first real workout with it I soon realized, this thing is no joke. 1 mile and I was done, legs felt like wet noodles. I was able to go 4 miles today and with time I'm sure I will reach my goal of 10 miles a day. If your looking for something fun and get a good cardio workout to boot, this is it. The best part is, no joint pains the next morning.
I love my street strider.
It gets your heart rate up immediately. Great for a woman to keep weight off.
I absolutely love the StreetStrider. Gives you a great workout while also being mobile and going places.
I am going to give this five stars because it is wonderful, easy and a blast to ride. The only thing is it is a work out - your legs burn and your arm are getting a great work out. This is why I ordered it and I am not one to order anything like this and I am so glad I have. It is soo worth it.
I love my SS. My family bought it for my b day. So much fun! I did have a problem with the handle bars at first, my chest is rather large and when I brought the bars back they kept hitting me in the chest. Finally, they are adjusted all the way out. It is not as comformtable, but still is so much fun. I have lost inches and lbs.
I LOVE THIS SO MUCH!! I HAVE HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE, CHOLESTEROL, AND ASTHMA AND THE DOCTOR THOUGHT THIS WAS GREAT FOR ME TO BUY. I HAVE BEEN RIDING IT AND EVERYONE KEEPS STOPPING ME TO ASK WHAT IT IS. ONE LITTLE GIRL SAID I WAS FROM THE NEXT DIMENSION. ONE MAN HAD A STROKE AND WANTED TO KNOW ALL ABOUT IT. EASY TO ASSEMBLE, LOTS OF FUN AND I'LL LET YOU KNOW IN A YEAR HOW MY CHOLESTEROL AND HEALTH IS. MANY THANKS FROM A SATISFIED CUSTOMER.
Great workout! Easy to ride! Fun! My kids want one.
I ride it as much as I can, I love it. We assembled it ourselves, one suggestion, put a note in with the instruction manual to watch the DVD. After we carefully assembled with the manual (with very little pictures), we watched the DVD and WOW! It would have been so much easier had we known.
I love it!!! Occasionally I have to ride through patches of dirt. At first I felt it was impossible, now it's a breeze. I wish the foot boards were the same width the whole way down. I tend to hit my knees sometimes with the handles. It doesn't matter though, I love it!!
Sprinter 3R Lightening Silver
Absolutely love my StreetStrider. Looking forward to miles and miles of striding!
Assembly was quick and easy. The DVD that came with it was very clear and easy to follow. I had the unit built in a couple of hours. The tools that they sent along were OK, but using your own wrenches and sockets makes it much easier.
Since you do not steer with your hands but by leaning, the steering took a bit to get used to. However, after a day's riding, both my wife and I were very proficient.
This is an excellent product and gives you quite the workout.
To me it's a Miracle
My StreetStrider arrived and it is wonderful. I feel already it has changed my life. I can't thank you enough. I have rods in my back and neck plates, screws and fusion from top to bottom. The StreetStrider has given me a new lease on life, I can move with no stress to my body and I am outside going like crazy. I love it! When I first started I could only stride for 10 minutes. Now I ride for more than a mile, twice a day.
I love the StreetStrider. I have had it for a few weeks now but unfortunately haven't gotten to use it as much due to work schedule. But when I do, it is a GREAT workout. Arms, legs, shoulders are all getting used. My heartrate is up in no time which really means longer workouts are not that necessary. I'm working hard the entire time I'm on it. Thinking about purchasing a 2nd one to take to a vacation home. Great product!
Best work out machine I've owned!
I love my Street-Strider! I've had it for a few weeks now and use it every other day. It is a real workout but it's fun. The Strider is like an elliptical machine crossed with a bicycle. My husband has started using my Strider instead of the elliptical at the gym because the StreetStrider gives him a better workout with the same low impact on his knees. I'd like to mention that the Strider is solid and very well made. I am quite happy with it.
I just love it....it took me about 3 hours to put it together, husband not available at the time to help...and I couldn't wait...it took me a little bit to get used to the turning but look out now because here I come. Great product and I love the color.
What a Workout!
I have some back issues, so sitting hunched over on a traditional bike will result in me being sore for days. Not so with standing on the StreetStrider. It was very easy to learn and the workout is awesome! I encourage anyone that wants a great ride to get one!
The 3R shipped great. My wife is using it occasionally and it gives her a workout.
Bought 2 of these on a whim
I bought 2 of these on a whim, hoping they would be fun and challenging. Right on the money. The instructions were straight forward, making assembly easy. I find the 3 gears to be a great setup. I was a runner for many years, but my knees are beginning to wear out, resulting in joint pain with any impact. The motion of the Sprinter causes no joint pain. The cross training benefit is obvious and you can cover a lot of ground compared to jogging. In short, StreetStriders rock!
A day or two after I retrieved the assembled but rackless Sprinter from the bike shop, they called to say the rack had come in. It's too much trouble to return the Sprinter to them to add the rack, SO - my suggestion would be to pack the rack with the bike, or at least put a note in to wait for the rack until they call to say the assembly is complete.
I like it very much but still trying to get the hang of it - it's not easy, but a GREAT work out!
Great exercise bike. Up to a half hour before I have to take a break. A little tricky at first but going well now and look forward too all my rides.
I remembered having seen the Street Strider on Dr. Oz. I ordered it, put it together using the easy to follow video & took off on my first ride. I ride DAILY except when it is raining. I live in an area of rolling hills, where I am provided with a HUGE workout which is good cardio & also muscle building. I look forward to many good years of keeping my strider as my exercise companion. BTW I am 67 years old.
I have had my StreetStrider for about a month now. I am having a blast. It gives me a real workout with no impact on arthritic joints and I certainly get noticed!
GRRREAT!!!! Working up to it!!!
The first gear is extremely tough to pedal. I was expecting the first gear to be a little easy and then the others to be a little tougher. All gears are tough to execute. I found that placing my feet towards the back of the pedals makes it a little easier to manage. Good for exercise though.
I am having the time of my life. I'm getting better at leaning instead of turning.
I highly recommend for fun and exercise but take it slow. Ride only in safe places that are familiar until you are accustomed to the operation of this StreetStrider. My neighbors love it, too. They thought that I was crazy until they tried it. They're considering ordering one.
Once was over weight
Work your way up so that you are comfortable on it before you take it on the street. Will you get a good work out? You bet! I am working my way to 5 miles every other day. After one mile you know you are getting a good work out. Beats hanging out in a gym.
The Street Strider is an amazing workout. Totally kicks by derriere!!! I'm afraid I do not use it as much as I had hoped due to what a serious workout it is. Gets me huffing and puffing very quickly.
I (female) was able to put it together completely. Must admit to being somewhat mechanical.
I have shown it to friends and they have found it to be a real workout also. You may have received an order from one of them as she was considering it.
HE LOVES IT!!!!!
I ordered the Sprinter 3r for my husband for Christmas. I cannot relay how much my husband loves his "bike". He rides it around the neighborhood...everyone looks....everyone asks.....so he spends alot of time talking and riding and talking and riding....and....then people in their cars look....and want to talk.....
Retired, 63yrs old
One GREAT machine!!!!!!! Been 4 wks now without any problems. I ride 45 mins 5 days a wk.
Thanks to ALL in the Fresno Store from owner to warehouseman. I hope to sell many in the Visalia area on the StreetStrider, what a workout!!!!!!!!
Love the StreetStrider!
I got the Sprinter last week and I love this thing! Having 3 gears is awesome because I can change resistance levels. I hate the gym so thank you StreetStrider for allowing me to get out of there! lol.
My Raspberry StreetStrider
I have had my StreetStrider for a little over a month, what a difference in my body ! Wow, getting sexy again.
I go a little bit farther everyday. I am so glad I made the purchase. This bike is so well made and I just love it....
Wild Raspberry 3r
I love this thing!!!! The color is awesome! The learning curve is next to nothing and what a great workout. Yhis unit may be a bit pricey but now that I have been using it I don't regret a single penny of the cost. I also want to thank Stilz and Clayton for the wonderful personal service they provided throughout the ordering and delivery process. A special thumbs up to you guys. Theresa

Outstanding and I am addicted to this wonderful piece of fun! I can't say enough about this, everyone who wants to get healthy should start with this equipment. Just great!
Received very quickly. Item was packed for shipping extremely well. Instructions on assembly via YouTube very helpful. Have had opportunity to ride a couple times and it is fun and exhausting!
StreetStrider Sprinter 3r
This is a GREAT machine. It is a workout & really does kick your butt but you'll have a BLAST! I have read a lot of reviews of people saying they went a mile their first day or more. Well, for me that was not the case. I am 260, female, & not in great shape but I can sure ride a regular bike a mile. If you are out of shape be prepared to take it slow for a bit, ride everyday a block or two, build up your stamina. It will do what it says though. Worth every penny. Easy to assemble.
I LOVE my StreetStrider!! I love the idea that I can get a great workout outdoors. This is fun, as well as wonderful exercise. It will take me a while to build up my stamina and distance, but I am enjoying the challenge. I am 56 years old and would recommend the StreetStrider to anyone at any age, who wants to stay physically fit, get in good physical condition, or just enjoy the outdoors.
The quality of this product can't be beat!!
FUN! FUN! FUN!
I love it! This is what I have been waiting for. I have used the elliptical machine in the gym for years and now I can use it outside. The quality is great and the workout I get is even better.
This is the answer
Best money I've spent since I bought my road bike over 10 yrs ago. Great workout without feeling like a workout. Not usually an attention getter but love the attention that I get striding. So glad you came up with this alternative to running since my knees are played out. Look forward to striding 5-6 days a week. Definitely not a drudgery!! Am an outside person so this is the answer!!
It gets better and better!
I haven't had my Strider very long but the experience gets better every time I go out on it. It definitely works upper body, lower body and core like no piece of equipment I've ever used as well as the added benefit of improving balance due to the "lean-to" steering. It's also the first time I've ever looked forward to exercising because of the fun factor. Anyone would love this.
The most fun you can have on an exercise machine
Had this for 2 weeks and use it almost every day- up to 45 min.; it's exhilarating, a great aerobic workout, like running on air. I have exercise induced asthma but no trouble on this. Hasn't caused any joint pain or problems (53 yo female). People stop their cars to ask me about it; kids shout out "I love your bike". I wouldn't recommend it for busy roads. I use it on back village streets during non rush-hour times or the school lots.I bought bike gloves- hard on the hands. I am addicted!
Wow! What a workout!
I couldn't believe the workout and this after just a few pedals! It was easy to put together. The video is so easy to follow. At first it felt awkard (I'm 5'4", over 250 lbs) but I soon got used to the motion. Best part my back doesn't hurt while using this. I would recommend to anyone looking to break free of the exercise rut!
Wonderful exercise option. This bike is very well built and the customer service is prompt and efficient. My whole family is enjoying this outdoor bike and we are all different fitness levels. Thank you StreetStrider!
Short & Stout & FUN , FUN ,FUN !!
Thought, hmmm ? just another expensive bycycle, I have 2 already that are no fun to ride as i'm 5'1" and a bit on the heavy side so the seat issue for me was Horrible!
MY SPRINTER 3R arrived 3 weeks ago and i LOVE IT, so if you are short don't hesitate, no knee pain, back pain just fun & excercise, rode 1/2 block 1st day 3 weeks later rode 7 miles LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!!!!!
It's even more fun riding together!
The Streetstrider is a blast. After a little getting used to, you don't want to get off it. In no time my wife and I were riding 15 miles at a time. After she got hers, we thought it would be a great thing we could do together. She's the pace car and I follow her.
Makes A Body Feel Good :]
Very good quality and one smooth ride. Excellent workout Love it.
I got this for my wife for her 60th birthday and she loves it. It is well made and easy to learn.
Outstanding exercise! Great fun! Takes a little while to get used to turning, but once you get the hand of it, you will thoroughly enjoy riding!!
It's so much fun, and great to be outside while working out on an elliptical. To actually go someplace while getting the best exercise is awesome! I'm getting in shape quickly and with a lot of fun!
ETX Sprinter 3r
I bought the Strider at my daughter's request and it has become a favorite for all four in the family. We get a lot of turned heads and questions when we ride. I thought I was in good shape, having worked out on an elliptical for quite some time, however, I found the StreetStrider adds more to the workout than I imagined. It's easy to ride but not as easy to maintain high speed as on a bicycle. I hope I'll find once I lose some weight it will be a bit easier.
Owner, Perfect 10 Pilates Studio
I have to say, this is the most amazing workout ever! You don't get bored, like doing a regular elliptical inside your home or at the gym. You get to enjoy the outdoors and feel so free riding around on your Strider. One thing I won't lie about.... after riding the StreetStrider for an hour, which I do, 7-days a week, I am sooooo hungry the whole day, which means I am burning some mega calories!!! Love my new StreetStrider! Amazing invention! Way to go!
Feel the difference after 1 week
The StreetStrider is amazing when it comes to an all over body workout. Minimal assembly required if you do it at home. I can feel the difference in my body even after 1 week using the StreetStrider. Very happy with my purchase.
ETX Sprinter 3r-Lightning Silver
This is a great workout tool and lots of fun. Not an easy workout! Will need to start out slowly and build up. Love the idea of working out with out the boredom of being inside.
Love my StreetStrider
I just turned 60 (large woman) and work in a home office. I needed something to get me outside for a non-boring, get the most out of a short time exercise. Just rode my StreetStrider yesterday and can't believe how fun it is.
Working off the baby fat
I just weighed in to find that I've lost 6 lbs in the last two weeks by riding by StreetStrider 5 miles per workout. I'm so glad to have found a way to exercise that I actually enjoy. I will be at my target weight in two months and I only ride 4 times per week. Can't wait to try my bikini this summer! Thanks StreetStrider!
The StreetStrider is Awesome!!!
So much fun. Everyone loves it when they try it out. You can burn so many calories and if you order one online from www.StreetStrider.com then you'll most likely get it in 7 days.
This is the best cardiac work out ever! Thirty minutes on this MUST be worth hours on something else. You work arms, core and legs at a minimum. I've had it since Christmas and I SO enjoy it. The only problem is I think I'm going to cause a car wreck soon...I drive it through the neighborhood, and everyone stares at me. I need to wear a shirt with the website address!
We had the StreetStriders sent to the bike shop for assembly. They arrived on a Fri and called us on Mon to pick them up. They are easy to use. It took us a minute to get on and go. My daughter is on hers everyday after school and waits for me to get home and join her! We've only had them for a week, so I'm hoping to improve my distance in the future!
Easy to assemble. Excellent machine.
My husband and I bought two of these as Christmas presents to each other.
We absolutely love them! They give you a much more thorough and complete workout than either bicycling or walking.
Plus, they are great conversation starters. Rarely do we have a "striding" session that isn't interrupted by someone asking about the Strider.
These Striders are no joke! As I thought I was in shape, I was exhausted after taking them half way around the neighborhood. Bought two of these as a Christmas gift for my parents and think they are great for working out. My only criticisms are that the instruction booklet for putting them together doesn't have clear pictures and that there should be an easy release mechanism to fold the handles down so you can store them or transport them a little easier.
Great Customer Service
My husband and I purchased a pair of the ETX Sprinter 3rs for Christmas. We are extremely happy with the bikes. They are fun to ride and give you an excellent workout. I also have to mention the customer service we received. What great people. Could not ask for more!
Great for rehab after knee surgery
The bad news is I had knee surgery 3 1/2 weeks ago.
The good news is, I got a StreetStrider and have been using it for rehab. It's been great - it gets the knee moving through a good range of motion; I can put as much or as little load on the knee as I want to; and it's very low impact on the knee.
I saw the doc for the "three weeks after surgery check up". He was blown away. He said it's one of the fastest recoveries he's ever seen.
Sprinter ETX 3R
I love my strider! It gets me out of the gym and gives me a great work out while enjoying the great outdoors. It's the best thing I have ever purchased, no regrets here... :-)
I LOVE IT!!
The StreetStrider is exactly what I have been waiting for and everything I hoped it would be. It's fun! I forget I'm exercising because I'm outside moving and it's always something new. It's only been 3 weeks and I have already lost weight and feel myself getting in better shape. I recommend the StreetStrider to everybody I talk to.
Love My StreetStrider
I love my SS. I am still learning what the correct position of my feet should be and the use of the gears going up hills. Overall I am very pleased.
Best investment I've made.
Use it everyday.
