Not for small people on small bikes - very uncomfortable riding position,
On my small bike the seat sat right up near the saddle, meaning I was hanging off the back of my seat. Your knees have to bow out to accommodate the babyseat, making peddling very uncomfortable and puts a lot of stress on your knee, especially up hills. I had to ride hunched with overextended arms to reach the handlebars without squashing my one year old with my boobs! My baby couldn't reach the rest pad, and was slumping over when falling asleep, so I had to hold him up with one hand to prevent him hanging out the seat. All in all, a very unco...mfortable ride. After a 2.5 hour ride my knees were in agony. Very disappointed as this had very good reviews and I like the idea of having baby up front. May be fine for a taller person on a bigger bike, doing short flat rides. Baby up front, you can see and attend easily. Baby enjoys it. Super uncomfortable on a small bike - especially on the knees.
Good concept but uncomfortable
I was attracted by the idea of having my child in front on the bike so I could see what she's up to and interact with her more than I could in a rear bike seat. However, it didn't work out for me as I find that my knees bump into the seat when I am peddling unless I ride with my knees sticking out, which is very uncomfortable and puts a lot of strain on my knees. I think it might be better on a larger bike (I am small and therefore my bike is small).
Another problem is that my daughter sometimes jiggles up and down and bangs her head back in...to my chest while I'm riding, which is painful and potentially dangerous as it distracts me from concentrating on where I am going. The harness is soft and comfortable but I found it slips off the shoulders. I had to pin it at the back to prevent this. On the plus side, the seat is very well made and my daughter finds it comfortable. She loves being so close to me on the bike. Overall I am disappointed with this product as I like the concept and it is well-made. Well-made, comfortable for child, can interact with child better than in a rear bike seat. Uncomfortable knees-out riding position. Harness slips off shoulders.
