3. Assembling the StreetStrider 3i and Trainer Stand
…… ….
…
This chapter refers to the assembly of the StreetStrider 3i model. To assemble your StreetStrider 3i, first view the StreetStrider assembly videos
provided to you on the StreetStrider DVD, then follow the steps and photos in this chapter. Included in the shipping box are the StreetStrider in
parts, an envelope containing the Owner’s Manual, Assembly Checklist, and StreetStrider DVD, and a small bundle in the top tray inside the box
containing the StreetStrider tool kit, a packet of assembly parts, 2 spare inner tubes, and reflectors. The tool kit contains a 19 mm socket wrench,
17 x 14 mm, 15 x 13, 14 x 12, and 13 x 12 mm open end wrenches, 2.5, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8 mm hex wrenches, and two tire levers.
3.1. Unpacking and parts (see video)
.
The StreetStrider comes in a large box with graphics to show which side is up. Open the box by cutting
the tape and lifting the top flap. The top tray (Fig. 3.1-1a) holds the parts (Fig. 3.1-1b), and the support
layers underneath protect the Strider components. The front wheel assembly and rear wheel are the next
2 layers (Fig. 3.1-1c). The main frame assembly is on the bottom layer. Using the corner cut outs to grip
the bottom cardboard layer, lift that layer and the folded StreetStrider out of the box and set the unit on
top of the box or table (Fig. 3.1-1d). Remove the padding and zip ties to have access to the frame parts
(Fig. 3.1-1e).
Figure 3.1-1. Unpacking the StreetStrider
3i
IMPORTANT: Save the box and packing material as they must be used to repack the StreetStriderr for any returns.
TERMINOLOGY: The right and left sides of the StreetStrider refer to sides when one is striding.
3.2. Attaching the strider skis and poles to each side (see video)
.
Using the 4 mm hex wrench, unscrew the 4 screws that tighten the right Joint #1 clamp and lift off the outer
cap (Fig. 3.2-1a). Lay the chain around the bottom bracket so that when the right crank arm is installed, the
chain can be wrapped around the chain ring (Fig. 3.2-1b). Lift the right strider ski and pole assembly and
set the right crank arm with square hole onto the bottom bracket square spindle and the top of the lower
section of the right pole into the Joint #1 clamp (Fig. 3.2-1c). Screw an 8 mm crank bolt into the bottom
bracket spindle with the 8 mm hex wrench and tighten firmly (25 N-m, 220 lb-in) (Fig. 3.2-1d). Secure the
Joint #1 cap over the top of the right lower strider pole using the 4 mm hex wrench to tighten the four 4 mm
screws until snug (Fig. 3.2-1e). IMPORTANT: Always tighten the 4 screws of the Joint #1 clamp
following the ‘Z’ pattern shown in (Fig. 3.2-1e).

Figure 3.2-3. Inserting the front beam shaft
Retrieve the front beam shaft from the bundle of parts, remove the 8 mm hex screw from the front end and slide off the two tapered roller bearings
and the washers (Fig. 3.2-3a). Insert the shaft into the rear of the shaft housing tube and align the flat area on the shaft with the 2.5 mm set screw
in the shaft housing tube (Fig. 3.2-3b). With the shaft inserted, tighten the 2.5 mm hex screw with the 2.5 mm hex wrench (Fig. 3.2-3c).
IMPORTANT: Do not over tighten the small 2.5 mm screw and strip the threads.
Figure 3.2-4. Rolling the frame onto the right side and attaching the left ski and pole
Lift the frame up to pull the cross bar and the left Strider pole Joint #1 clamp out of the cardboard support (Fig. 3.2-4a), and roll the frame over onto
the right side to gain access to the left side Joint #1 clamp and bottom bracket spindle (Fig. 3.2-4b). Using the 4 mm hex wrench, remove the left
Joint #1 clamp cap (Fig. 3.2-4c). Set the left crank arm on the left bottom bracket spindle and the left lower pole into the left Joint #1 clamp (Fig.
3.2-4d). IMPORTANT: Position the left crank facing forward just as the right crank arm. Using the 8 mm hex wrench, screw in the left crank
bolt to hold the left crank arm onto the spindle but DO NOT tighten. Using the 4 mm hex wrench, install the Joint #1 left clamp cap and snug the 4
screws following the ‘Z’ pattern as used on the right side.
3.3. Attaching the front end (see video)
.
Figure 3.3-1. Attaching the front end
With the right and left side Strider skis and pole attached to the main frame, roll the folded frame upright and lay it across the table or box. The
cardboard frame support of the bottom packing layer can be used to elevate the front end for access (Fig. 3.3-1a). Slide the rear washers and rear
tapered roller bearing race, with taper facing forward, onto the front beam pivot (Fig. 3.3-1b). Holding the front beam and wheels assembly with
decals facing forward, slide the center bearing housing onto the shaft against the rear tapered bearing race. Then slide the front tapered roller
bearing race, with taper facing rearward, onto the shaft (Fig. 3.3-1c). Position the front beam pivot cap over the shaft front end and secure with the
8 mm pivot shaft screw. Using the 8 mm hex wrench tighten the M10 screw (40 N-m, 350 lb-in) (Fig. 3.3-1d). IMPORTANT: We recommend
adding a liquid thread locker to the threads of the 10 mm screw.
Figure 3.3-2. Attaching the front end (con’t)

3i / Owner’s Manual
Using two 13 mm open end wrenches, hold the flats of the left outboard rod end stud and unscrew the 13 mm nylon lock nut on the stud (Fig. 3.32a). Insert the rod end stud through the top of the hole in the steering knuckle with one washer above and one below, then tighten the 13 mm nut
onto the stud (Fig. 3.3-2b). Repeat the steps to attach the right outboard rod end to the right steering knuckle (Fig. 3.3-2c).
Figure 3.3-3. Attaching the front brake cables
To attach the front brake cables, route them under the steering linkages (Fig. 3.3-3a) making sure the cable housings are inserted in the cable
doubler (Fig. 3.3-3b). Insert the end of the cable through the hole in the adjusting screw (Fig. 3.3-3c) and then through the space behind the nut of
the cable clamping screw. Pull the cable through the space to make sure it is taut, then tighten the clamping screw with the 4 mm hex wrench (Fig.
3.3-3d). Repeat the steps to attach the right front brake cable.
3.4. Attaching the rear wheel (see video)
.
Figure 3.4-1. Attaching the rear wheel
Set the frame on the table or box so that the rear frame triangle is accessible to install the rear wheel (Fig. 3.4-1a). On the axle of the rear wheel
hub, unscrew the left acorn nut and the right hex nut so that there is about 1 cm axle threads visible between the hub nut and the yellow non-turn
washer on the left end (Fig. 3.4-1b) and the hub nut and the flat washer on the right end (Fig. 3.4-1c). Position the rear wheel partly into the rear
frame so the chain can be wrapped around the rear sprocket (Fig. 3.4-1d). Figure 3.4-2.Attaching the rear wheel (con’t)
Then slide the rear axle all the way forward into the dropout slots so the chain can be wrapped around the chain ring (Fig. 3.4-2a). Pull the wheel
rearward until the chain is taut, center the rear wheel in the frame, insert the yellow non-turn washer tongue into the dropout slot and using the 15
mm open end wrench, tighten the axle nut on the right (Fig. 3.4-2b) and the acorn nut on the left (Fig. 3.4-2c). Insert the shifter push rod into the
hole on the right end of the axle (Fig. 3.4-2d), then attach the bell crank to the right axle by fitting it over push rod and right axle nut as close to the
drop out as possible with the shifter cable routed along the lower edge of the frame chain stay, and then securing it by tightening the 2.5 mm set
screw with the 2.5 mm hex wrench (Fig. 3.4-2e). IMPORTANT: Do no over tighten the 2.5 mm set screw.

3.5. Unfolding and adjusting the strider poles (see video)
.
With the strider on the floor, lift the head tube up (Fig. 3.5-1a), slide the quick release, QR, locking T-pin to
the right (Fig. 3.5-1b) and stand the head tube fully upright. Allow the spring-loaded locking pin to slide
left, rotate the QR T-pin up onto the fold joint top and then close the QR lever by pushing it down in front
(Fig. 3.5-1c). With the crank arms pointing downward unscrew the left crank arm with the 8 mm hex
wrench (Fig. 3.5-1d) and separate the crank arm from the left bottom bracket spindle. Rotate the right
crank arm to the 12 o’clock position and reattach the left crank arm, held in the 6 o’clock position, to the
bottom bracket spindle and tighten the M8 crank bolt firmly (25 N-m, 220 lb-in) (Fig. 3.5-1e). Figure 3.5-1. Unfolding
Figure 3.5-2. Adjusting the strider poles
The upper strider poles can be adjusted to different heights and can be rotated forward or rearward to match the anatomical size of the user and to
be comfortable. Using the 4 mm hex wrench loosen the 4 mm screws holding the cap of the Joint #1 clamp to adjust the upper poles (Fig. 3.5-2a)
and then tighten the clamp cap using the ‘Z’ pattern as used earlier so that the clamp cap is compressed evenly against the strider pole.
IMPORTANT: DO NOT RAISE THE POLES ABOVE THE |||| STOP |||| LINE AT THE LOWER END OF THE POLE (Fig. 3.5-2b). A good starting
position for pole adjustment will have the user’s elbow bent to about 90° when the poles are vertical (Fig. 3.5-2c). Using the 5 mm hex wrench
position the brake levers in front of the grips and then tighten (Fig. 3.5-2d). Using the 3 mm hex wrench position the shifter with the window facing
the user and tighten (Fig. 3.5-2e). Once the poles are adjusted use the zip ties from the parts bundle to hold the brake and shifter cables to the
poles near the diagonal bend. 3.6. Aligning the front wheels (see video)
.
Figure 3.6-1. Aligning the front wheels
The front wheels need to be aligned so that they do not point in (toe in) or point out (toe out) – they need to be parallel to each other.
IMPORTANT: This adjustment may have been performed at the factory but it is good to periodically check front wheel alignment. This
alignment is important for performance so take the time to do it correctly. First, insure that the tires are inflated up to 80 psi and the strider is not
leaning, the head tube is vertical from the front view. Measure the distance from the center rib of one tire to the center rib of the other tire on both
the front or leading edge (Fig. 3.6-1a) and the rear or trailing edge (Fig. 3.6-1b). The distance should be near 26 inches and should be equal to
within 1/8” or 3 mm. If the measurements are not equal to each other, use the two 14 mm open end wrenches to loosen the jam nuts that are
tightened against the base of each rod end (Fig. 3.6-1c). On each steering linkage one rod end is right hand threads and one is left hand.
10
3i / Owner’s Manual
Figure 3.6-2. Aligning the front wheels (con’t)
To make the wheels parallel rotate the linkage rod (Fig. 3.6-2a) one way or the other - note how the tire angle changes - until the distances
between the tires in the front is equal to that of the rear. Make sure that any adjustment to the right linkage rod is duplicated on the left linkage rod,
maintaining symmetry. When the wheels are parallel to within 1/8” or 3 mm tighten the jam nuts against the rod ends. To tighten the jam nuts first
rotate both rod ends as far as possible in the direction that the jam nuts will tighten (Fig. 3.6-2b) then use the two 14 mm open wrenches to tighten
the jam nut against the rod end. Check the distances between the wheels one more time to make sure they are equal. Check to make sure that the
length of the steering linkages from inboard rod end center to outboard rod end center, are equal on the left and right. Check and make sure that
steering linkage rod is free to rotate as the strider is leaned to each side.
3.7. Adjusting the front disc brakes (see video)
.
Figure 3.7-1. Adjusting the front disc brakes
Using the cable housing adjusters at the brake lever (Fig. 3.7-1a) and on top of the cable doubler (Fig. 3.7-1b), make sure that there is no slack
cable in the front brake cable section above the doubler. Make sure the cable housing adjuster at each front brake is screwed in and if needed, use
the 4 mm hex wrench on the cable clamping screw to make the cable taut and remove any slack cable between the cable doubler and the brakes
(Fig. 3.7-1c). Looking at the where the brake pads and disc rotor meet, us the 5 mm hex wrench and screw in the outer brake pad until it just
touches the disc rotor and then unscrew about ¼ turn so that there is a sliver of space between the rotor and the outer pad (Fig. 3.7-1d). Use the 3
mm hex wrench inserted through screw on the inner face of the brake caliper and screw in the inner brake pad until it touches the disc rotor and
then unscrew about ¼ turn (Fig. 3.7-1e). Check to make sure the wheel rotates freely and the pads are not touching the rotor, adjust if necessary,
and then repeat this cable and pad adjustment on the other brake.
Standing in front of the strider with hands on the grips, squeeze the left brake lever and pull the
strider forward (Fig. 3.7-2a) until the rear wheel is off the ground then slowly release the left brake
lever. If the strider rolls forward straight then both brakes are operating evenly. If the strider rolls
forward but to one side, then unscrew the brake cable adjuster at that brake on that side about 1
turn and repeat until the strider rolls forward straight. Use the jam nut on the cable adjusters to lock
any adjustment. Lastly, squeeze the left brake lever and lock with the parking pin (Fig. 3.7-1b). Pull
the strider forward to make sure the parking pin locks the front brakes. If the strider rolls forward
unscrew the brake cable housing adjuster at the brake lever until the parking pin locks the front
brakes when applied.
Figure 3.7-2. Adjusting front brakes (con’t) 3.8. Adjusting the rear disc brake (see video)
.
Figure 3.8-1. Adjusting the rear disc brake
3i Owner’s Manual

Screw in the brake cable housing adjuster in the right brake lever (Fig. 3.8-1a). Make sure the cable housing adjuster at the rear brake is crewed in
and the cable is taut from the adjuster to the clamping screw (Fig. 3.8-1b). Adjust the inner pad with the 5 mm hex wrench (Fig. 3.8-1c) and the
outer pad with the 3 mm hex wrench (Fig. 3.8-1d) so they are about ¼ turn from touching the disc rotor while making sure the rear wheel spins
without drag from the brake. Lastly, squeeze the right brake lever and lock with the parking pin. Pull the strider forward to make sure the parking
pin locks the rear brake. If the strider rolls forward unscrew the brake cable housing adjuster at the brake lever or at the rear brake until the parking
pin locks the rear brake when applied.
IMPORTANT: Properly adjusted brakes will clamp the wheels when the brake lever is squeezed about 1 inch (25 mm). 3.9. Adjusting the shifter (see video)
.
Set the twist grip shifter in 2nd gear (Fig. 3.9-1a). On the bell crank attached on the
right axle end of the rear hub, check to make sure the interior thicker yellow line
under the gear alignment window is between the two thinner yellow lines on the
window (Fig. 3.9-1b). If needed, use the shifter cable housing adjuster at the front
of the bell crank to move the interior line to the correct 2nd gear position (Fig. 3.91b).
Figure 3.9-1. Adjusting the shifter
3.10. Folding the StreetStrider 3i (see video)
.
Figure 3.10-1. Folding the StreetStrider 3i
To fold the StreetStrider 3i rotate the left crank arm to the 3 o’clock position, as viewed from the left side, and open the QR clamp on the left ski just
in front of the foot platform (Fig. 3.10-1a). Under the left foot platform (Fig. 3.10-1b), locate and depress the button that releases the telescopic
inner tube of the left ski. Extend the inner tube forward until the release button snaps into the hole in the outer tube just behind the QR clamp and
close the clamp on the left ski to stabilize the extended ski (Fig. 3.10-1c). IMPORTANT: Do not stand on the platform of the extended ski or it
will damage the left ski. Open the head tube QR joint lever, rotate the stem forward, move the T-pin to the right, then fold down the head tube
(Fig. 3.10-1d). Reverse the folding steps sequence to ready your strider for use.

Position the draw clamp clips over the chain stays and snap down to secure (Fig. 3.11-3a). Use the nuts on the threaded end of clips to adjust the
tension of the draw clamp if needed. Screw the roller assembly knob inward to press the roller firmly against the tire so it doesn’t slip and turn the
magnetic resistance knob to adjust resistance (Fig. 3.11-3b). Lastly, place the riser blocks under the front tires to stabilize the front end while
striding on the indoor stand (Fig. 3.11-3c).
4. 7 Simple Steps to Learn to Stride
.
Step 1. Safety first. Before you stride, wear a CPSC (Consumer Product Safety Commission) approved helmet. Children under 18 years old
must wear helmets in some states. At night, make sure to wear light colored or reflective clothing and equip your StreetStrider with front and rear
lights. Before starting any exercise program such as StreetStriding, check with your doctor to make sure you are physically healthy enough.
Step 2. Find a safe, flat place. An ideal location to practice striding is a large flat area such as a parking lot with little to no traffic.
Step 3. Become familiar with the brakes and grip shifter. Straddle your StreetStrider with both feet on the ground and practice
squeezing the front brake lever at the left grip and the rear brake lever at the right grip. At the right grip, rotate the grip shifter clockwise to shift to a
lower gear and counter clockwise to shift to a higher gear. To start striding on a flat place, rotate the shifter to gear 1.
Step 4. Step on and start rolling. While straddling the strider and with both hands on the grips, step onto the foot platform that is closest
to the ground, placing your foot near the middle of the platform. With the other foot, give yourself a push forward to start rolling, then place that foot
onto its platform. Use your legs to move the platforms in the forward elliptical path and focus on using your arms to move the poles back and forth.
Step 5. Find the best gear. As you increase speed, shift to a higher gear to get the smoothest arm and leg motion. When climbing a hill,
shift to the lower gears. Try different gears to achieve the optimum speed and cadence for your striding style and exercise goals.
Step 6. Lean to steer. To make a turn, simply lean or shift your body weight a little bit in the direction of the turn and the StreetStrider will
begin to turn. The more you lean, the more the StreetStrider turns. You can pedal while turning. Practice right and left turns, shifting gears, and
braking to a stop while standing on the Strider.
Step 7. Have fun! Now get out there and enjoy your StreetStrider! You’ll have a blast and burn calories too!
5. Safety Equipment
.
WARNING: Many states require specific safety devices. It is your responsibility to familiarize yourself with the laws of the states where
you stride and to comply with all applicable laws, including properly equipping yourself and your StreetStrider as the law requires.
3i Owner’s Manual
13
Helmets. While not all states require bicyclists to wear approved protective headgear, common sense dictates that you should wear a CPSCapproved or other helmet whether the law requires it or not. Most serious vehicular injuries involve head injuries that might have been avoided if the
rider had worn a helmet. You can find a variety of attractive helmets as well as get recommendations at the www.streetstrider.com online store or
your local dealer. The “right” helmet is not just a fashion statement. To do a proper job, your helmet must fit correctly, be worn correctly and be
properly secured. Ask StreetStrider technical support or your local dealer to help you with the fit and adjustment of your helmet.
WARNING: Always wear a helmet when riding your StreetStrider. Always keep the chinstrap securely buckled. Failure to wear an
approved helmet may result in serious injury or death.
Reflectors. Reflectors, an integral part of your StreetStrider, are important safety devices designed to reflect street lights and car lights in a way
that helps you be seen and recognized as a moving rider. Federal regulations require every StreetStrider to be equipped with front and rear wheel
and foot platform reflectors. The size, performance and location of each reflector are specified by the U.S. Consumer Products Safety Commission.
CAUTION: Check reflectors and their mounting brackets regularly to make sure they are clean, straight, unbroken and securely mounted.
Replace damaged reflectors and straighten or tighten any that are bent or loose.
WARNING: Do not remove the reflectors or reflector mounting brackets from your StreetStrider. They are an integral part of the
StreetStrider’s safety system. Removing the reflectors may reduce your visibility to others on the roadway. Being struck by other
vehicles often results in serious injury or death. Remember - reflectors are not a substitute for lights. Always equip your StreetStrider
with all state and locally mandated lights.
Lights. If you ride your StreetStrider after dusk, it must be equipped with lights so that you can see the road and avoid road hazards, and so that
others can see you. Vehicle laws treat StreetStriders like any other vehicles, meaning you must have operational white front and red rear lights if
you are riding after dusk. Get lights and recommendations at the www.streetstrider.com online store or your local dealer.
WARNING: Reflectors are not a substitute for proper lights. It is your responsibility to equip your StreetStrider with all state and locally
mandated lights. Riding at dawn, dusk, night or any other time of poor visibility without a lighting system that meets local and state laws
or without reflectors is dangerous and may result in serious injury or death. Front and rear lights are not standard equipment on this
StreetStrider. If you intend to ride at any time under poor visibility conditions, you must have front and rear lights and reflectors that are
adequate for those riding conditions. Lights and reflectors may not be adequate to insure that motorists will see you under all
conditions.
Eye Protection. It’s always a good idea to wear protective eyewear—tinted when the sun is bright, clear when it’s not – as any kind of outdoor
riding can involve airborne dirt, dust and bugs. Most bicycle shops carry protective eyewear, some with interchangeable lens systems. CAUTION:
To avoid injury, always wear suitable protective clothing, including footware.
Wet Weather Striding. In wet conditions, the stopping power of all brakes, yours as well as the brakes of other vehicles sharing the road, is
dramatically reduced and your tires don’t grip nearly as well. This makes it harder to control speed and easier to lose control. To make sure you can
slow down and stop safely in wet conditions, ride more slowly and apply your brakes earlier and more gradually than you would under normal, dry
conditions.
WARNING: Wet weather impairs traction, braking and visibility, both for the StreetStrider and for other vehicles sharing the road. The risk
of accident is dramatically increased in wet conditions.
Night Striding. Even if you have excellent night vision, many other people with whom you are sharing the road may not. A StreetStrider, like
any object, is more difficult for motorists and pedestrians to see at dusk, night, or any other time of poor visibility. Make sure you comply with all
local laws about night riding and take the following additional precautions:
• Make sure your StreetStrider is equipped with correctly positioned and securely mounted reflectors.
• Purchase and install an adequate battery or generator powered front and rear lights.
• Wear light colored, reflective clothing and accessories, such as a reflective vest, reflective arm and leg bands, reflective stripes on your
helmet and flashing lights.
• Any reflective device or light source that moves will help you get the attention of approaching motorists, pedestrians and other traffic.
• Make sure your clothing or anything you may be carrying on the StreetStrider does not obstruct a reflector or light.
• Stride slowly and avoid areas of heavy traffic, dark areas, and roads with speed limit over 35 mph. Avoid road hazards. If possible, ride
on routes already familiar to you.
WARNING: StreetStriding under poor visibility conditions without reflectors or a lighting system that meets local and state laws can
result in serious injury or death.
6. Mechanical Safety Check and Maintenance
.
Here is a simple, sixty-second mechanical safety check that you should get in the habit of making every time you’re about to get on a StreetStrider.
Your StreetStrider will perform properly and last longer if it is maintained in a clean, adjusted, and lubricated condition. For more details, watch the
StreetStrider Workshop videos on the Support page of our website www.streetstrider.com.

3i / Owner’s Manual
Nuts and Bolts. Lift the rear wheel off the ground by 2-3 inches, then let it bounce on the ground. If anything sounds, feels or looks loose, do a
quick visual and tactile inspection of the whole StreetStrider. If any loose parts or accessories are found, secure them. If you’re not sure, ask
someone with experience to check.
Tires and Wheels. To check if your tires are correctly inflated, stand on the platforms with the brakes on and bounce your weight on the
StreetStrider while looking at tire deflection. Compare what you see with how it looks when you know the tires are correctly inflated. Add air if
necessary. To check if your tires are in good shape, spin each wheel slowly and look for cuts in the tread and sidewall. Replace damaged tires
before StreetStriding. Make sure your spokes are tight. To check if your wheels are true, spin each wheel - if a wheel wobbles side to side or hits
the brake pads, take the StreetStrider to a qualified bicycle shop to have the wheel trued. CAUTION: Wheels must be true for the brakes to work
effectively. Wheel truing is a skill that requires special tools and experience. Do not attempt to true a wheel unless you have the
knowledge and tools needed to do the job correctly.
Brakes. Squeeze the brake levers. If the brakes do not clamp the wheels properly or you cannot apply full braking force at the lever without
having it touch the handlebar, adjust your brakes. Do not ride the StreetStrider until the brakes are properly adjusted.
Lubrication. Depending on how often and hard your strider is used, and the type of road and weather conditions that it is subjected to, it will
require lubrication sooner or later. Before applying lubrication clean the road dirt off the parts. Lubricate the chain with a bicycle chain lubricant
when it appears dry and or is noisy. The pivot joints, rod ends, roller bearings require regular lubrication with light grease, and the brake and shifter
cables require oil.
WARNING: Riding with an improperly adjusted brake or worn brake shoes is dangerous and can result in serious injury or death. Do not
attempt to adjust your brake or wheels while the StreetStrider is in motion.
WARNING: Do not engage in any activity that exceeds your riding ability and skill. Practice new riding skills in a safe controlled
environment. Keep hands, fingers and feet away from all moving parts while the StreetStrider is in motion, including the tires, wheels,
brake and brake cable.
NOTE: Like any sport, StreetStriding involves the risk of serious injury, death and damage. By choosing to use a StreetStrider, you
assume the responsibility for the risk, not the people who sold you the StreetStrider, nor the people who made it, nor the people who
distribute it, nor the people who manage or maintain the roads or trails on which you ride. So you need to know and practice the rules of
safe and responsible StreetStriding.
Now buckle on your helmet and enjoy your StreetStrider.
