    The Dutch do it best, August 2, 2012
    By 

    After doing a TON of research about baby seats and trying a few out (such as the Topeak model with suspension), I must say this is the best child bike seat that I’ve found for overall performance, especially if you are a regular cyclist who values things like balance and durability. And if you value style, even better.

    Why is this seat better than the others?
    1) it does not require a rack. No noisy, clunky bounce over your rear tire. A rack-style seat places your child in direct contact with vibrations from the axle. They feel what the wheel feels b/c they are attached to it. Now take a look at the picture: the seat attachment clamps onto your seat tube, which is the place where the bike frame naturally absorbs vibrations coming from the axle (esp. if you use a tough steel frame–not aluminum).

    2) it does not feature any fabric on the seat. This is important if you ever get stuck in rain, spill juice, splash mud, etc. Most American-made models act like a child seat is supposed to be a recliner, but in fact you want it to act more like a roller coaster seat–ergodynamic but not “cushy”. The material is an EPA foam that resembles the BumbaBaby seat or a tough Nerf football. It is both comfortable yet sturdy (supported with real metal rails), with the right amount of flex.
    3) Durable. Did I mention the seat attachment is made of steel? with several serious bolts requiring an allen wrench? It feels like a true extension of the body of your bike.
    4) Aesthetics. Believe it or not, you can actually look cool with a child seat. People in NYC continually turn their heads when we ride by and ask us where we bought the seat.
    5) Flexible. This thing is quite easy to insert and remove–it has a quick release that releases in seconds. On our daily drop off and pick up, we swap the seat between Mom and Dad’s different bikes (requires the purchase of an extra seat adapter for $40).
    6) Security. Esp. important for urban riders: the seat comes with a lock and key so nobody can walk off with it while is parked!

    Drawbacks:
    1) Price. This is one of the most expensive seats on the market. You get what you pay for–but you do pay about 1/3 more ($75) than the other top-of-the-line models.
    2) Weight. This is a bit heavier than the cheap plastic versions that you insert into the top of a rack. (But I’m biased here: honestly, when you are already carrying a 30 lb child, does an extra 10 lbs really matter? Your going to feel like a tank on the streets either way–there’s no way to feel nimble with a larger weight hovering over your back tire).
    3) Fit. Due to the weight, I would not recommend this seat for cheap aluminum frames or road bikes with small tires (less than 700 x 28cm). Ideally, you would mount this on a Dutch bike (its original market–these are used widely in Amsterdam). For US customers, you could probably make do with a steel cruiser bike, city bike, mountain bike, or vintage cruiser (I use a 1968 Raleigh Superbe). You need a fairly upright seat tube geometry (low 70 degrees, I think) to make seat angle work, though there is some slight room for tilt adjustment (another great feature lacking on rack versions). Either way, you need mountain tires (26 inch), commuter (26 inch), or somewhat larger road tires (700 x 35cm min.) to support the weight that you will be carrying.

    This is a tremendous product that is slowly catching on in the US. REI and Amazon sometimes sell out of this product; I found mine at a great little store in the Tribeca neighborhood of NYC called Adeline Adeline that also does an online business. No, I don’t work there, just want to support my local bike store!

    Our family has never had more fun on our bikes!

    Great Seat – Some details caught me off guard…, May 12, 2014
    By 
    Tim Bender (North Carolina) –

    Verified Purchase(What’s this?)
    UPDATED 7/7/14 to correct model name.

    This seat is fantastic. It may or may not be better than other less-expensive seats (this is the only unit I’ve tested) but it totally meets and exceeds expectations. That stated, there are a few things I’ve learned in the past month of use that will inform future decisions on carrying children on bikes.

    Some Background: One child, 9 months old (at time of review), 19 lbs and 28.5 inches long. Prior to family life I was regularly bicycling 5,000 miles per year, almost entirely commuting to work. This seat is mounted to a Surly Long Haul Trucker (a touring bike), size 56cm with a 73 degree seat tube angle. That probably won’t mean much to most readers and that’s ok, but for the bike nerds it may provide some reference.

    Rear weight bias: The biggest surprise to me with this seat is how much it shifted the weight of the bike to the rear. When dismounted, the bicycle is very rear-heavy (with baby in seat) and it doesn’t take much effort to lift the front wheel. When riding there is no problem – i’ve tried to wheelie or otherwise unload the front wheel enough to test the limits and can’t – which is good. No issues on inclines. In fact the overall ride of the bike isn’t that much different at speed; stopping and starting take a little more coordination and that’s where the weight comes into play most. But back to the rear-bias – I’m just a little bit curious what will happen when my son gets older & heavier. This issue probably isn’t unique to this seat, and honestly it shouldn’t scare anyone away from a purchase. Just something to be aware of.

    Front-to-Back Seat Leveling: The adapter (included) which mounts to the seat post can be adjusted slightly to ensure that the seat is level front-to-back. Some reviewers have noted that on some bikes there it’s not adjustable enough. I want to confirm that the degree of adjustability is limited, and with the 73 degree seat tube on my bike the seat is close to level, but not completely. the base is slightly higher in the rear than front. For me, it’s close enough though.

    No helmet interference for smaller children: I was concerned that the high seat back would interfere with my son’s helmet and force his head forward and down. At his height his head is still largely below the top of the seat back. I’ve found that this is not an issue however.

    Tail lights: If you are accustomed to a seat-post light facing the rear, you may need to find a new location to mount your light. It would’ve been nice if this seat was designed with some kind of light bracket mount (it has all kinds of reflectors already), but i’ve found it’s easy to clip a light that has a belt-clip type of attachment (PlanetBike Super Flash, for example) to the seat back just below the hand hold. It feels secure and works.

    Rear Panniers on a rack: If you have a rear rack and are used to mounting a pannier to it you might have trouble with clearance. the integrated skirt on the seat that works well to keep your kid’s legs out of the wheel spokes takes up lots of lateral real estate along my rack, and I’ve found it difficult (but not impossible) to continue to use a rear pannier. Not a deal breaker, but it caught me by surprise. I may end up moving towards regularly using front panniers, but that’s a lot less convenient.

    Longbike / Xtracycle notes: (UPDATED 6/30/14) I’ve recently installed an Xtracycle FreeRadical on this bike. This product works fine with the Xtracycle meaning that it fits over the flight deck without issue. I want to point out however that it still has to attach to the seat post – that won’t change. There isn’t an adapter that will allow the seat to attach to the top of the flight deck; if that’s what you want you’ll need to purchase the Yepp Maxi Easyfit seat. The good thing with this setup is that the seat/baby weight doesn’t count towards the 200# weight limit on the FreeRadical (honestly though, 200# out back plus another 50# seat/kid plus my own weight is really pushing things, so this may be a moot point). The main drawback in utility for me is that because the Yepp is mounted to the seatpost it takes up space just above the front of the flight deck – this is the part of the deck that can carry the most weight and where you’d put an adult if you wanted to carry both a baby and an adult on the Xtracycle. The long stays (behind the rear axle) are only rated to 50 lbs will bend under the weight of an adult. If you want to do something like this, get the Easyfit and mount it at the rear of the flight deck so you can carry an adult towards the front.

    Overall I’m very pleased. It would take a monumental effort to design a seat that was substantially better than this.
