WeeRide – Ace!
Just a quick note if anyone’s thinking about getting one. They’re brill!Posted 4 years ago
Been out for a quick 5 miles with Mini Ox (14 months), and he laughed pretty much the whole way round. Especially the fast downhilly puddle bits that splashed him from head to toe.
And if it mounts on my bike, It’ll mount on anything:
So long as you don’t overtighten it I think you’d be alright on a dropper. It doesn’t need to be mega tight.
If you like the Weeride then you should start watching out for a LOCT as the next seat. They were discontinued a while ago and are like rocking horse poo but are brilliant. I managed to find one just as my eldest was ready for it and I can’t recommend them enough. The youngest still uses it from time to time but I might sell it come the summer, will put it up on here first if/when I do.
Edit: Good excuse for a pitcher 🙂
That’s an Islabikes trailerbike the eldest is on. Also discontinued but brilliant. Eeh, bikes!Posted 4 years ago
It’s just bolts through a split clamp on either end. The headtube clamp is really quite slim, so should fit most bikes. Less than 10mm of available space to clamp onto on mine and it fits fine. The rear clamps onto your seatpost. The bolts for the rear are fine on Bro-in-law’s Orange Clockwork, but only just long enough to clamp onto my seatpost, so if you’re going onto a dropper you’ll probably need to purchase longer bolts.Posted 4 years ago
What happens when you crash with jnr on board?
I believe he’s 5x more likely to die, what with it being a forward facing seat.
In reality, believe it or not, the fact that my 1-year old son is on the bike with me tends to curb my enthusiasm for the rougher stuff.Posted 4 years ago
I don’t think it’ll fit on my Spitfire because of the zero stack headset but we shall see… It will fit on the Soul and that seems a slightly more sensible bike for taking a baby out for rides! Today is my first day of stay-at-home Dad (part-time) life and I wish I’d ordered the seat already, I think she’d have enjoyed a trip out on two wheels. Ah well, next week…Posted 4 years agotimmysSubscriber
There seems to be three models of Weeride (Classic/Deluxe/SafeFront), any comments on whether the more expensive models are worth it? Any offers about that people are aware of?
Also what’s the youngest age that people find them usable at? The sprog is currently 8.5 months and the blurb says “Recommended for ages from 1-4 years. Though can be used as soon as neck muscles are strong enough ie 6-9 months.”Posted 4 years ago
I took Guru Jr to Sing & Sign today on the Weeride – first proper outing! Fits much better on my old Boardman than on my 140mm Soul with Gravity Dropper because the Weeride can be fixed higher relative to the seatpost and comparatively lower at the front so she isn’t reclined back where my knees want to be. Add a layback post and shift the seat right back and I think we should be able to go on some nice little XC rides together once the mud diminishes.Posted 4 years ago
Just about to return on our test-run a few weeks back:
She has a helmet now which I suspect would be useless in a crash because it’s so hard to get it to stay in the right place on someone so small and sceptical of headwear – however it’s good for keeping hats/hoods in place.Posted 4 years agoquantockspaulMember
Also what’s the youngest age that people find them usable at?
When I tried my daughter at around 9 months, she was not very keen on the experience as she didn’t want to be held in place by the straps and wasn’t using her hands to hold on.Posted 4 years ago
I had a trailer for nursery runs so stuck with that for a while. Once she was walking herself, and scooting on a trike i tried again. She was able to use her core much better to stay in place and hold on when she wanted and loved it.
My only comment for age is, they’re ready when they’re ready.
