Love it!!! Worth Every Cent!!!!!!!
I have my 7 month old in a wee ride, she is the size of a one year old so can fit into it, I wouldn't recommend it for under 1 if they're small as the harness will be too big.
Its a great invention. It doesn't feel like it alters my natural sitting bike position at all and it balances perfectly. My daughter loves it and I can see her eyes light up when I pull the helmets out of the cupboard.
Only mild problems are with my bike I don't have the full turning circle I normally would have as the edge of the handlebars hits the WeeRide so cant m...
Excellent for fabulous times together out and about :)
Bought the Weeride Delux when my son was 16 months old to enable drop and pick up from daycare. I have fitted it to a Scott mountain bike and although you may need to allow for the width with your legs (very minimal) and allow for the childs head in front of your chest (with flat bars) it makes my son fell quite secure and comfortable to the point where when we go a little faster he tends to grip my arms and / or the pad.
Awesome for keeping touch and monitoring your child whilst riding and gives them a uninterrupted view of everything around them.
We use the Weeride for so much more than daily short trips and go on several hours of riding exploring the country side.
Great for family rides
I'm really happy with the weeride seat. Haven't been on a bike for a while but am confident enough with my little one on the front between my arms where i can see her and talk to her. Great for my 2 year old who is a bit mischievous and likes to try to escape out of any 5 point harness if she can so i wouldn't be able to relax if she was in a rear mounted seat.
Points to note: the seat does get in the way of your knees a bit. I don't really mind because I'm not riding further than the park. Also i wouldn't put a big kid in this. My 2 year old is 12 kg and very comfy. I wouldn't put my 18 kg 4 yr old in it.

My 11 Month Old Daughter Loves Her WeeRide
I purchased the Deluxe WeeRide from 99 Bikes at Burleigh Heads. Definately worth the few extra dollars for comfort from the base model that was just a plastic shell. It's great the way I can see my Daughter at all times without having to continually turn around to check her whilst riding on a busy beachfront footpath. I only hope she doesn't grow out of it too quickly as everything Child related.
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.
My bub loves the weeride. Feels stable and safe. Great that she was upfront. Was worried that the seat would interfere with peddling but isn't too bad and definitely worth it for the other advantages.
Easy to install. Stable. Upfront position - can see and interact with bub and maybe catch her if she falls.
Harness isn't great quality. Interferes with peddling but much less than I would have thought.
Stable, safe to use, bub loves being in her seat and going for a ride. It was a bit pricey but definitely worth it.
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.
