...was founded on the idea to get kids on the best two wheels possible. It started with an idea of upgrading our own child's balance bike and spent days searching around town and online for quality parts without any luck. We couldn't have been the only ones with the same need for our kids. Thus Wild Child Bikes was born. Those few days searching for the best has turned into years providing the best to parents just like us.
So cheers to you and all the little 2 wheeled rippers out there. Let the fun begin!
"If you are having trouble with your little one slipping with the original foam strider wheel then you will definitely want to upgrade to pro wheels v2. These wheels are hands down the best thing ever. My daughter is now going faster and keeping up with her sister. Not to mention that they look amazing on the bike and with all the awesome color choices there is something for everyone. They also are still light weight. They shipped fast and were on time. If you have been thinking about upgrade Just do it you won’t be disappointed."

If you're ready to take your strider to the next level look no further! Wild Child Bikes will get you ahead of the competition. These bars will give your rider the ultimate comfort while riding and give them the confidence in the corners!
"The stem is awesome and allows for alot of adjustment. It's extremely secure and reasonably light. It's nice to have the flexibility to swap out bars based on riders size. Not to mention it looks fantastic. All you could possibly hope to get in a stem!"
"The Wildchild headset is one of the most significant upgrades for your strider. The headset is very high quality, like the rest of the Wildchild parts I have ordered, and makes the steering much more controlled and precise. I would recommend the headset for confident riders as, combined with the Daddylab stem and bars, it does make the steering more sensitive. It transforms the Strider and makes it handle like an adult bike. Combine this with the Wildchild Pro Wheel set and the Strider becomes a totally different bike."
Bought these to replace the stock tires on my son’s Woom1 balance bike. These are significantly wider with a more aggressive tread pattern. As he began getting really good on the balance bike he has been riding more and more off road, loose gravel, etc. These tires have made a huge difference in terms of stability and “roll over” ability. Were easy to mount. Customer service was great even though shipping was delayed due to the pandemic. Highly recommended.
Helpful, fast replies and delivered to the uk in record time!
The stem is really good quality and looks amazing on the bike with great fitment.
Gr8 experience. 2 day shipping order, Was out of stock for wheels I ordered, immediate communication and confirmation on replacement wheels. Shipping not delayed!
When will they be back in stock
My toddler loves this bike! He can now go riding with his brother without wanting his big brothers bike! Good investment!
The spacer raises the handlebars up just a notch, which is what we wanted. Nice color also.

I wish they would have come with instructions. I’m not a handy person and it took me awhile to figure out how to install on bike but once I got them on they looked great

Exactly what we wanted, shipped fast even with coronavirus slowing everything down. Thanks!
Quality tube, the angled valve makes life easier, and the tube is made from recycled materials.
Great robust product to make my sons strider a little cooler.
Such a great purchase! I wanted to thank Justin for helping me with any questions I had. Highly recommend!
These are the single best upgrade you can do to your kids balance bike. They spin for days and really help your kid sail down the track. Paired with the schwalb big Apple tires, these are simply amazing. I do wish the pink was pinker though.

My foreign a half year-old won’t get on her bike with training wheels because it wobbles and she basically looks down at her feet the whole time just trying to keep her feet on the pedals. She’s frustrated and disappointed all the time. With a balance bike, she keep her chin up, looks forward, has learned how to steer and just zooms around keeping great balance! The videos online were exceptionally helpful. She watched one and basically taught herself what to do. Thank you!
The balance bike I ordered was on backorder and I was (thankfully) notified via e-mail. I had a few questions about some of the other bikes I had looked at and each time they were very quick to respond and I ended up feeling really good about the bike we ended up with.
Looks great, easy to put together would totally recommend to get the smooth fast gliding to make your ride fast. Thank you !
My boy has a nice Saracen balance bike that was in need of tires. These were perfect! I ride a lot of Schwalbe tires on my own bikes and assumed correctly these would be of high quality - they are. Perfect tires, great price, great service.
We looked around for a new strider bike for our 4 year old son, we had many questions and we were answered immediately, we also got the wheel kit, handle bars, grips and quill neck all awesome and the bike looks great! Can’t wait to get racing! Thank you! Mogensen family!
Well constructed aluminum cup headset with sealed bearings. If you want to turn your kids strider into a real bike this is one of the best upgrades you can buy at a good price.
The Wild Child 14” wheels are the standard when it comes to push bike race wheels. Aluminum axles, aluminum spoke nipples, double wall aero aluminum. Could not be happier with my purchase and a great price for such high performance.
Dear Wild Child.
Thanks for the fast delivery. Its take approximately 2 weeks to get item safely arrived. From period of delivery, i been keep updated mostly everyday by email, thanks for the USPS auto-reply shipping system.
Last but not least, the stuff received is awesome and in a good packaging. Looking forward to make a deal with you again next. Thanks
Well built, beautiful color (gold) to accent our green Strider, and looks even better with the gold headset. We opted for raised over flat since our girl is in the higher percentages. She is only 12m though but what's nice is you can just rotate the bars in the stem to be drop bars or swept back, so there's a little extra adjustability in addition to tweaking the stem height, to ensure a perfect fit as she grows. Had no problems at all slipping on some Strider Classic/14x grips.
Wanted to try a different rise level so we will be testing on nice days.Grandson liked the feel so hope it works out.
The stem isn't the most exciting part of the bike really, mostly just needed it because I upgraded the headset, so could no longer use the stock Strider bars (plus the new gold bars look sweet!). That said, it does its job and seems sturdily built. Choosing the quill vs. the B50 with a separate stem adapter was mostly motivated by what wasn't sold out at the time, but there is a little plus that there are fewer protrusions for tiny bugs to bump into in the event of a crash. It does increase the reach since it protrudes forward, but it's not a huge deal: since I got riser bars, I just rotated them in the stem so that they sweep back rather than up, and it more or less matches the original stock reach.
I was at first hesitant about whether the headset would be worth it, especially given it means needing a new stem and bars too. I knew the wheelset with knobby tires would be a huge upgrade, but I was ordering before we actually had the stock Strider itself. How bad could the stock steering really be? Ultimately I went for it because 1.) I'm a sucker for my girl and just want to spoil her with the best and 2.) the gold color would just look sweet, although spacers could handle color accents for cheaper. Then we got the Strider and oh my, were the stock plastic bushing horrible, I had no idea! Just like the wheelset, the bearings in the headset are super smooth and the steering feels so nice now. I did opt to install it myself with a homemade press and a good dose of anti-seize compound to prevent galvanic reaction between the aluminum headset and steel 12 Sport frame and had no real issues with it, but definitely if you're not that bike-mechanically inclined having a shop do it is a good call. I have zero regrets about spending the extra cash.
they're that buttery smooth. We put these on even before giving the bike to our daughter because we're off-roaders and knew the stock foam wouldn't cut it. The Black Jack tires are super grippy like a shrunk down version of adult tires. Even just spinning the wheels in the air, it's clear how much more superior the hub bearings are: the stock wheels make an awful racket while these are so quiet, the only thing you hear is a very gentle hum from the small amount of wind off the rubber. As a bonus, the screws to secure the axle sink down into the provided washers, protruding much less than the stock cap nuts increasing safety (less likely for little legs to bump into, which seemed to be a common complaint in reviews of Striders vs. other brands). Our girl is only 12 months so we have no idea if she'd even want to try competition, but it doesn't matter, these upgrades are worth it just for the added control and confidence she'll have while learning to ride.
If there's anything I could fault, it's that the gold color wasn't quite a perfect match to the gold headset and Daddylab bars as I was hoping, but I can't take off a star for that as it's personal cosmetic taste, the build quality itself is amazing. To their credit, through email they explained the difficulty in matching anodizing colors from different manufacturers, and did offer to exchange for another color if I wanted to, though we chose to keep the gold as it still looks super stylish.
Awesome grips! Totally recommend them!
Ordered a 12in sport with base I didn’t receive tracking info. And in less than an hour of asking for it I was updated with all the info I needed ....thanks guys
