Description

Give your Strider Bike buttery smooth turning with the Wild Child Headset. By replacing the stock plastic bushing in the Striders head tube (the part of the frame where the fork goes through), our lightweight sealed bearing headset gives the bikes steerer zero resistance. The Wild Child Headsets gives the bike the same performance steering action as high-end adult bikes.

Strider Bike must have either a stem adapter or quill stem to be able to work properly.

Headset Headaches
Not all Striders are built equally. Steering tube length can vary depending on the production run of the bike, even within the same model number. While some need a spacers, others don't. Due to the technical install and the need to adapt to unforeseen problems, we recommend having a bike shop install the headset. We are sorry the install gave you a 3 star impression for the product but are happy you are pleased with the outcome and performance of the product after you got the install sorted!
