Frequently Asked Questions

Which length of streamers for bikes, trikes or scooters should I order?

The 11" length works great for kid's bikes, tricycles, and scooters. The 14" length looks best on full-size adult bikes and adult trikes. (Of course, you can order whichever length you want for your adult bike, but we think the longer streamers look better on bigger bikes, especially cruisers).

How do I install these?

It's simple! Just pinch the metal clip ends together and insert one end at a time into the hole in your handlebar grip. Once both ends of the clip are inserted, push the length of the metal clip in until the round part is touching the grip hole. 

If you have soft rubber grips with a very small hole, you may want to gently stretch the hole open just a bit for easier installation. You can do this using a screwdriver, awl, ice pick, or similar tool. If you have any difficulties installing your streamers, email us at info@retroyourride.com and we will try to help you figure it out.

Are the streamers for bikes, trikes and scooters sold individually or as a set?

All streamers are sold as a complete set of two. If you purchase a quantity of 1, you will receive a complete set of two - one for each handlebar grip.

Will these streamers work for Micro Kickboard Scooters?

Yes! (We have a couple of these in our house, and they are such great scooters). However, because the handlebar grip ends are made of a very soft rubber material, we like to add little rubber bumpers to the ends of the metal clips. Please let us know if you are purchasing these streamers for a Micro Kickboard scooter, and we will send you the appropriate clips.

What about small balance bikes and tiny tricycles?

You may want to consider a shorter length of streamers - maybe 9" or 10", instead of the standard 11" length. Just let us know which length you think will work best, and we will make those changes for you at no additional cost. You can leave us your instructions in the Comments section at Checkout. Or you can email us at info@retroyourride.com within 24 hours with your request. Special requests submitted after 24 hours of your order placement may not be received in time.

How do I care for my new streamers?

For normal soiling, hand wash with a mild detergent, and air-dry. If needed, streamers can be ironed.

If you leave them outside in the sun for weeks at a time, you may see color fade, however, these streamers should hold up fabulously in various weather conditions and look great for a very long time.  

Do you sell to retailers?

Yes! Please contact us at info@retroyourride.com for more information.
