I need the single speed. The only change to my strida will be folding pedals. I hear it's hard to find good quality ones.
I saw somewhere some removable pedals that had a fitting similar to an air hose. Might be worth looking into. The only problem is they are removable, by anyone.

The removable pedals are very nice. They make the folded bike smaller, and at least the MKS pedals that I have are very high quality. I have the clipless version, which will appeal to the more serious rider.

Being removable is a good thing: they come with a small bag so it is easy to take them off and put them in a pocket when locking the bike. It is very hard to ride off on a bike without pedals...
