Well, you have to win a contest to get it, but still, it requires only minimal effort:
Some website called Inhabitat, which is "a weblog devoted to the future of design, tracking the innovations in technology, practices and materials that are pushing architecture and home design towards a smarter and more sustainable future," is sponsoring a contest to give away a Strida SX Limited, which is a very fancy, design-y folding bicycle that costs nearly $1000 (and which is pictured above).
What do you have to do to win this contest? Well, it's called "Pimp my Eco-ride," so you are supposed to provide one photo that proves you need a fancy new bike - presumably a photo of the lousy bike you have now, or of yourself being fat and needing exercise, or of a really sad face so people will be sorry and give you a bike. You also have to sign up for Inhabitat's newsletter, but I don't think that's the worst thing ever, especially if you get a bike out of it.
Anyway, as a loud and proud supporter of folding bicycles, let me urge you, dear reader, to enter this contest and ride this cool bike.
