Seriously, took all of four minutes to install, the only tricky bit was finding something to brace it against my already existing panier rack... but the seat itself matches my bike, fits perfectly, snugly, and assides from slight noise over bumps... which, quite frankly isn't avoidable when you live in Scotland... the roads are crap. lol This Seat is extremely good value for money, well built, easy to install, and fits my wee girl (3years old) with room to grow, would definately buy it again if I ever needed another bike seat. Definately buy this seat if you want to bring your kids along, she absolutely freaked out when I opened it and hasn't left it alone since she's seen it. 'Daddy, we're goin' on my seat with you?' friggin adorable!
