These are absolutely fantastic and a bargain at this price. I was hoping to sell my second hand one for about this much.

If you have a child under 4 and like cycling, buy one. So much better than the rear mounted ones.
So this isn't a potty then?
Absolutely brilliant. Used one for ages with my little boy. Great to get out and about with and nicer to be able to point things out and chat easier.
What about all the poor reviews referencing the scratched bikes, kids not fitting past age 2?

Kind of putting me off
Tempted!
Ive been in the cycle trade over 10 years, fitting hundreds of bike seats. I bought one of these as i liked the idea of my daughter seeing more as we ride. I sent it back as it wont fit if you have a decent mountain bike (carbon, or oversize smooth weld aluminium tubes) without modification and sourcing longer bolts. Reduces steering angle and puts weight on steering and had had argument with the manufacturer over its cheap eu safety standard. I dont like the idea of the adults weight transfering throught the child in a crash. But hey after brexit these wont exist......

Yes it is possible to scratch your frame with these if not taking care when installing the mounting bar but if your careful or wrap your frame with electrical tape first then its fine. I've had one fitted on my winter hack/do it all mtb for the last 2-3 years for my little one and she's loved it. I simply leave the bar on and take the seat on and off as required.

Sadly my little one turns 5 this year and even though she is little for her age I'm not sure she will fit it this year - time she upped the milage on her own bike now. But this seat has been fantastic for me/her and I'd highly recommend it.
Considered this type when we were looking for one. Ended up getting rear mounted instead as I couldn’t cycle without pushing my knees out sideways with the front type which wasn’t at all comfortable. Also I felt our daughter would be more shielded from wind behind me as she does tend to feel the cold when sat still. Rear mounted tended to accommodate older children too. Good price for this one though if you decide it’s for you.

There used to be a money back guarantee if it didnt fit up to 5 years old. That's a while ago though, used one of these for a long time, pretty good but you have to cycle a bit bow legged so not perfect for long distances
surely a seat behind is safer and easier for the adult to get on, pedal and steer

look lethal to me with a chance that the kid will be crushed if the adult falls off
Good price - paid about the same second-hand (which I considered a bargain)

Front or rear, if you're an inexperienced/unstable rider, then neither are for you.
I had a front seat and rear seat fitted on my cheap Apollo hybrid bike a few years back to take first and second both on riverside rides....worth it for the ability to have all 3 of us on one bike.

Same here - the three of us had some fantastic times. Front seat my favourite by a mile as you can talk to your kid and they enjoy a better view. You do have to cycle with your knees facing out and lower your saddle right down so your feet can touch the ground whilst seated. But yeah, thoroughly recommended.

Even better with a motor to help up the hills!
We had this but found it too small when my boy was only about 2.1/2.
We ended up getting the Co RIDER upfront seat. Our son is now 6 and is only just too big though I can still remove the leg supports.Its very stable and well balanced and the child has their own hand supports.Always got a lot of people stopping and asking questions.

Yes, it could scratch your frame if you're not careful, but you leave the bar mounted, so it's not on and off every week. Just the seat removes.

Doesn't get in your way much when cycling. You sort of get used to it.

So those disadvantages get outweighed by the advantages of having your child safe between your arms. Much, much better if you're doing anything extreme as the centre of gravity is more amidships where it would usually be. My boy used to love going around the English National BMX track, especially with all the other "flying bicycles".

Regarding size, I was sceptical, especially as my lad is huge for his age. Forget the guarantee they offer. You can just use a Stanley knife or jigsaw to cut out the front toe area of the foot holders. That'll give you at least another year of use. It would be easy to duck tape back up if you later wanted it for a younger child.

Bargain, for sure and the memories of all the trails we did are priceless.

But yes, check your frame size/style as it's true it wouldn't mount on all types.
while these feel safer as you see your kid (as opposed to your kid smelling your backside) they are not safer in anyway, if you fall down, your child might hit the handlebards or it might hit the pavement as hard as it would from the rear mounted one.
Rear mounted ones are more convenient IMO
