Top tube mounted child seat question
would require an elaborate engineering solution by the looks of things.
The weeride child seat positions the passenger in the same place, but has it’s own bar that mounts just above the top tube, so that would work, but only if you’ve not already got the one in the OP, in which case, I’ve just wasted a few minutes typing all this out.Posted 6 years ago
I have a mountain bike with the gear and brake cables which run along the top of the top tube. Is there any way of adapting the clamp on one of these child seats so it won’t restrict the cables?

I have that leco one and just run the cables over it, I put a bit of helitape between the cable and the clamp as there is a bit of rub, gears work fine, helitape is not noticeably worn despite the rubbing of the cable. Or run full length outers as reggigasket says.
Its a great seat, no nonsense. I put racer handlebar tape stuff on my bars inboard from the levers for my 4 year old to have a comfy grip. She loves being on the front, hated the rear seat, poor viewing angle.Posted 6 years ago
Thanks for the advice everyone.
At the moment I’ve got a make shift seat (piece of camping mat heli-taped around the TT) but as we venture more off road the 2 YO’s finding it a bit uncomfortable. For the foot rest I just covered an offcut of wood with a piece of inner tube and cable tied it to the head tube. Works a treat.Posted 6 years agotoys19Member
What you need is one of these seats:
Little One Comes Too
Had one for about 3 years and now using it with my second kid – who loves it just as much as the first. A doddle to fit and move between bikes, works with both hard tails and FS too.
Whilst this sounds like a good idea they are not actually in production, and have none to sell.Posted 6 years ago
