    Good job! Built Custom Strider for my Niece

    So I had planned to make this thread earlier but here goes..

    Both my boys and all their friends have learned on striders.

    When my brother had his first kid, I knew I wanted to build an awesome girl bike.

    I also thought it'd be cool to have my sons help as much as they could to build their cousins first bike.

    So after we sanded down the blue frame and painted it black. I wanted to get some Decals.

    I wanted to do a girls bike, but not a "princess" looking bike.
    I got a local sign shop to make me some decals. I used the same font to spell My nieces name. Sienna.

    I made some other decals for it, like Eat My Dust! and Girls Rule Boys Drool. to decorate the bike with.

    Once the frame and decals were done I ordered the grips, wheels, and the seat. I also got some quick release collars for the seatpost and the handlebars. I helped my sons build their cousins first bike. I think they like opening the packages more than anything.

    Dude, this is completely awesome—beyond words—just the fact alone that your little dudes were sooo completely stoked to help customise the strider for their sister!!!
