2.0 out of 5 stars Great idea, but only for the casual rider, 14 May 2012

This review is from: WeeRide Classic Front Mounted Children's Safest Bike Seat, Ages 1-4 (Sports)
After reading all the other reviews I thought I'd give this a go. My little 11 month old gets bored easily by most forms of transport but loves anything fast moving! Ordered from Amazon direct so I knew I could return easily if need be.

Piece of cake to assemble, tools provided easy to use and fit for purpose. I have a normal "hybrid" bike and the metal seat attachment fitted easily and the seat simply screws into that. Build quality is fine, seat itself feels a bit flimsy but not worried about safety because of where my boy would be sitting. Straps fine although you would have to ensure they fit tightly due to the child's seating position.

So far so good...but once I tried to ride my bike I instantly realised how useless this product is. I am 5'6, size 12 and my bike is a normal size for me. I have the saddle adjusted at normal height, i.e. I can touch the ground without getting off the saddle. But the problem with this product and reason I gave it 2 stars is the riding style is just not comfortable for any length of time. Having to peddle with your knees out wide is uncomfortable and chaffing against the side of the seat is certain for a longer bike ride (as another reviewer wrote).

For the very occasional bike rider doing up to an hour ride at low speeds on the odd weekend here and there I can see how you would give this 5 stars, but for regular usage or any distance or any on-road usage, this seat is just not usable in my opinion. The only viable option is a traditional rear mounted seat.

So it was worth trying but it's not for us - returned it for a full refund (minus 6 pounds for Amazon return delivery charges).

I think this observation was pretty obvious from the video. The rider looked uncomfortable.
