Who in their right mind would take one onto the roads with children in them?

Seen them a couple of times on the road - cycling bad enough on your own as it is.

Think child should be in the title, cause to be honest with you... I just thought about starting up my own bike taxi service in town.

i saw a bike with a child seat in front and behind and thought to myself, who on earth would but put the 2 most precious people in such a dangerous position in the hands of other drivers. This looks just as crazy!

Please dont ever put your child in this and ride on the main road. It would be your fault if anything happends!!

Stupid comment of the week!!

Brilliant deal. Let's stay on-topic.

Good deal

Is this a viable option to upgrading to a 7 seater people carrier? Pretty sure you could lash it to a towbar. Money is tight at present. I particularly like the look of the stealth brown colour. Add.....to.....cart.....literally!

Why does everyone assume these will be used on the main roads? I see kids playing football in the street. But don't feel the need to comment on every post for a football saying that its dangerous.

99% of people as the op stated will use this on trails in a responsible manner.

do not risk the life of your family with this stuff

I think we have had enough comments on how safe this would be on the road, you don't see these on the road and there is a good reason for that, they are not meant to be used on roads..... Some people do have common sense mind, they don't need to be instructed by the hukd members.

Excellent deal and I would buy it if I had space in my shed to fit it, and before everyone pipes up, I would use it on the miles and miles of cycle paths we have around us.

and please tell me how I would be doing this cycling around the park or along a cycle path......

As hancock pointed out he has seen 'a couple' of these used on the road, compared to the hundreds seen everyday at places like centre parks or the tissington trail.

Ignoramus!

I was looking at getting one of these to transport my child about but went for the Bellelli B-Tourist Bike Shopping Trailer instead. Seemed like a no-brainer to me at £25. OK, it's a bit of a tight squeeze as he's two now but when I've got my headhones on I can barely hear him crying. I don't know what people are harking on about regarding road safety as I quite happily take him out on A-roads in this and we've never had an accident (touch wood). All this health and safety rubbish is getting boring now.

Well obviously you do as you commented very defensively to 3 comments on here!

Not everyone lives on a main road, been out on a bike this morning and seen few cars,
The problem with this is other road users, if people followed the Highway Code and had just a little patience then these would be as safe as any other vehicle on the road..

The people commenting how dangerous it is, out of interest how close do you overtake cyclists, if the answer is under a car width, you really need some drive training and accept the road is for all legal road users.
If I saw one of these on the road I would be extremely cautious and ensure it was safe to overtake

Would these be ok to use on the road if you secured the baby with maskin tape?

Have a word with Willy Wonka; he's probably got some work for you.

whatya is spot on... I cycle on roads daily, and also have a similar product to this for our daughter. it is very safe, however maniacs overtaking to slam on brakes and turn left leaving me to do an emergency stop, or leaving 10cm gap whilst overtaking at 30mph plus are dangerous and stop me from even considering using this on the road.
idiots are the problem, not cars, bicycles, or child seats.

Epic comments. Epic. Personally I prefer my child in a car. It has airbags and safety zones. Vs mesh and fabric

Please do not use these on aircraft runways while the aircraft are taxiing this would be extremely dangerous. If your children were killed this would be 100% your fault!

There, fixed that for you. But in most of northern Europe they are probably safe to be used. It's just that in these isles the infrastructure is so poor and that planners have been in thrall to cars for 50 years. Also because car drivers are never challenged they think that they do not have to show any consideration to anyone else.

Most certainly, but there's more chance of the IS converting to Christianity before that happens.

Ah but they DO get used on the roads and that's why they put a 'safety' flag on them. I guess you've never seen a parent holding an un-belted child in the front seat of a car either? Or the inflatables with kids in them in the sea on a windy day? Or the kids jumping up and down in a shopping trolley as the parents push it around the supermarket? There's no limit to the stupidity of the human race; the only surprise is that natural selection hasn't taken care of the numpties yet.

Natural selection doesnt work with humans anymore. This is not a joke comment.

That's not quite true. Modern technology has protected us from natural selection to a degree but the process of evolution hasn't stopped for any species. There are millions of genes, most of which we're unaware of. If the environment changes and, let's face it, it looks like it's going to in the very near future, then natural selection may kick in again. I don't think it's correct to say that natural selection doesn't work on humans any more. Take away modern society and who knows. Also, take malaria as a prime example. Some people are naturally resistant to it. If it mutated so that the drugs we have became useless and if the climate changed so that malaria spread across the world then natural selection would wipe out anybody without the resistance. It probably won't happen but... it could. Anyway, let's not digress from bike taxis

Does anyone remember being a child in a car? Tedious as hell... I guess these days you can shut your kids up with a console or DVD... but then might as well stay at home.

Really **** me off when its assume these are dangerous but 1tonne (and increasing) cars are totally okay... sigh

The wife drives a 2.3tonne volvo just to make sure if her bad driving causes a crash it won't be her and my baby that get hurt

No youre right . I think what i meant was natural selection isnt working in developed countries at this point in time, but thats not to say it wont take effect again in the future. Does that sound about right? And yes, bike taxis dont take them onto the motorway as that can be dangerous.... etc.
