As the weather begins to warm up its time to dust off those cobwebs on the bike and hit the road in a more eco-friendly manner, if you have a small person in tow this could be made even easier with the WeeRide Safe Front Deluxe Baby Bike Seat.
The Deluxe comes in two colours, Blue Denim or Beige, the seat measures up at 38 × 29 × 50cm and will add an additional 3.7kg to the bike before loading up the little passenger. The seat is recommended for ages from 1-4 years (up to 15kg), although can be used as soon as neck muscles are strong enough i.e. 6-9 months, however as we know children come in all shapes and sizes at any age so it’s definitely worth plonking them in the seat before attaching it to the bike. The seat comes with patented centre mount baby cycle seat not a front mount fixing system, the patented bar puts weight in the centre of the bike and not on the front like other front seats. There are no attachments to the handlebars, making for a safer ride, the seat fits all bikes including oversized head tubes and full suspension of 16”+ (except drop handle bars), it comes with its own bar so it will fit both Ladies and Mens bikes, a new adaptor is also available for zero headset bikes. Tested by TUV and GS to EN14344 European Safety Standards, this seat is robust and when attached to the bike it feels very secure, instalment took a little while, but we believe this is more down to us than anything else.
Once the bar is attached it can be left on the whole time, attaching the seat takes less than 20seconds and spare bars can be purchased separately so the Deluxe can be easily attached to other bikes, switching between rides on the fly.
The Seat comes with a headrest for baby to sleep, the adjustable footrests keep dangling feet out of the way, the plush cushions give the child a comfortable ride for extended periods of time. The 5-point safety strap keeps the child safe and secure, the higher sides also increase stability and the chunky buckles make it easy for grown up hands to open. Having the child up in front means you can easily communicate with them; they get to see the world around them rather than your back and having them sit between yours arms is comforting for both parties. The WeeRide Safe Front Deluxe Baby Bike Seat is a great front bike seat, the weight is loaded in the middle making it feel highly stable, it is rather bulky and takes a bit of getting used to, however it is quick to attach and the padded headrest gives the child a few comfortable positions to sit in.
