KID'S BIKE SEAT
May 24, 2004
Back to questions
I have been looking for a bike
seat for my 4 year old, but I can't find anything rated
for more than 40 lbs. I want to take him with me when I
bike but he is too young to ride by himself. Can you help?
I think your son has gotten too big
for you to carry him on a rear child seat. Perhaps you should
look into something called a trail-a-bike. It looks like
a bicycle with the front tire missing, and you attach it
to your adult bicycle.
Instead of a front tire, a trail-a-bike
has a metal tube that clamps to the seat post of the adult
bicycle. The trail-a-bike has its own handlebars, pedals,
and seat, but the child cant steer it (it simply rides
behind the adult bicycle).
