- What Child Seat for a 13 month old human
I used to run one of these on the front:
And one of these on the back:
When my kids were little (2.5 years between them, front seat from 9 months). Also had panniers and one of these:
All on one of these:
Bobike mini and maxi are great seats and easy to switch between bikes, hard work on hills though, especially when the kids get bigger!
My husband used both seats on an old marin, so no need for a dutch bike.
…being Dutch this was obviously ridden in the rain using an umbrella!

I use a WeeRide with my 8 month old (he is the size of a 12 month old though). I’ve found the same as the others, flat pedals make it easier but the amount relly depends on the bike you are riding, it is not so bad on my langster as my Stumpjumper HT.
I wouldn’t be able to have a rear seat as well as when I get on/off the bike I tend to need a bit more space behind when junior is in the WeeRide.Posted 5 years agorestlessMember
I had to have a rear mounted bike seat for mine as I couldn’t reach around to the handlebars with a front seat.
I have used rear mounted seats up to age 4yrs no problem. Wouldn’t be able to do that with the front ones, but i guess it all depends how big your kids are (mine were big) and how long your arms are (mine are short)
So best to try a few out .Posted 5 years agoigmSubscriber
Having used both mid and rear mount seats, I prefer the mid mount especially as the child gets bigger – better weight distribution.
I first did Les Gets with a passenger when he was 3. Did it again when he was 4. LOCT seat both times, so a little more robust than a Weeride but also more minimalist.
Riding without eldest on a mid mount seat was fine at 4 years. Regulars at Dalby also did Drumlanrig and SSEC10 social ride. Just ride within yourself.
Edit: 19 month old currently on a Weeride. Eldest careering around on an Islabike Beinn.Posted 5 years ago
