Attaching a small child to your mtb
I’ve got an i-Bert as well and it is fine, obviously big drop offs you have to be a bit more wary of the forward momentum 😯Posted 3 years ago
We ride some reasonable singletrack and my wee girl loves it, so much so i can;t go through the garage with her without going for a short ride. I found it much better than a wee ride.londonerinozMember
What’s the oldest/heaviest/tallest some if these options would manage?
My daughter is small and light for her age, approx 1m and 15kg. She hasn’t really taken to cycling yet despite buying her a balance bike and a pedal bike, so I’m thinking showing her what it’s like to cycle might encourage her. She’s really good and likes going fast on her 3 wheeled micro scooter.
Cheers for any thoughts.Posted 3 years ago
Did it affect steering boxfish?
Oh yes. Makes the front end very heavy. Didn’t try any wheelies, put it that way. I liked the idea of having little ‘un where I could see her, plus she got a much better view. I have shortish legs for my height and never had any issues with knee room. However, the lankier among us may not be so lucky.Posted 3 years agochiefgrooveguruMember
Chief – At least put your daughters helmet on properly if your gong to make her wear one!
I wouldn’t have bothered with a helmet, I think it’s essentially pointless! However, my wife was concerned and there’s also the issue of the great unwashed passing judgement if I ride by with a helmet on with her hatless.
What I have found is that a bike helmet makes an excellent device for stopping a baby/toddler removing her hat so her head doesn’t get cold. It’s nigh on impossible to fix it in a suitable place to protect her forehead without it coming down over her eyes and causing screams of annoyance but as fitted in that photo it retains her woolly hat effectively.
So yes, bike helmet on baby is basically just a hat securing device!Posted 3 years agotimmysSubscriber
