Custom Strider modifications have really taken off in Japan. Today's blog entry is a video that one of the "Team No Pedals" parents made showing how to put on a stem and handlebar combo that will make your Strider rider feel cooler than they already do!
This can be completed at home with some relatively simple additions of a: head tube shim, an expander plug, a top cap, a stem (the shorter the better) and handlebars (not too wide!), which you should be able to pick up at your local bike shop.
This is also a great way to ensure that your child's Strider doesn't get confused with anybody else's when you're out on the town or having an impromptu Strider M.O.B. session at the local dirt park!
