This was just the part that I needed to repair my 2005 Stroller Strides Bob after countless miles of jogging on roads and trails. However, I was a little disappointed in the instructions provided with the part. Note that I am a mom trying to fix my baby stroller and don't really have a mechanic background. It may have been OK if I had been simply able to reassemble the rings in the order that I had taken them off, but I was missing 4 of the 10 rings (hence the need for the part). A simple picture or diagram of the order of installation would have been immensely helpful. Though, I did figure it out in the end and my stroller works perfectly now. Response: We updated the product webpage with replacement instructions for reference. We apologize for the inconvenience.
