We have 4 bikes and we move the seat around in seconds to each of them. Our 2 year old is in bliss all the time--holding the bars and feeling part of the experience. Great product--easy on/off/storage. so worth it!
My 3 year old daughter wants to go everywhere on "the bike seat" now. We travel a lot by bike, but our trailer just sits in the garage now...she loves being up high and up front where she can see. We talk a lot about what we are both seeing. She often says "I really like this." Total win at pretty much every level.
From a technical perspective, I have two comments. One, the engineering on this is excellent. No compromises, no complaints. Two, I wanted to share my experience as a shorter/smaller rider (167 cm/5'6"). I thought a lot about this before buying one; if you look closely, every photo you see (both promotional and otherwise) shows taller riders piloting the bike. Yes, if you're smaller you have to ride with your knees out, although flat pedals allow you to adjust your feet to make that less awkward. I don't think I would want to ride that way for 30 miles, but it's just fine for 10 or 15. Also, a dropper post makes getting on and off easier.
Incredible product! Only comparable with Apple devices... extremely precise and best quality. Really appreciate for your work! Congrats
My son loves this!!! I woudl say that with my shortish top tube I do have to pedal with my knees out. I don't think a long ride would be fun for me or my son. That said, the MacRide is perfect for tooling around the neighborhood and it has gotten my son out of the trailer.
I put this on my Surly Krampus and set my (almost) 3 year old son on it and he freaked. I tried just letting him sit on it while I pushed the bike around the yard. He was terrified. He has been scared of it ever since. I am really bummed because I'd love to take him riding all over Butte, MT. Lately, I've been leaving toy cars on the bicycle and saying that Krampus found them and that we should ride Krampus and try to find some more. It doesn't work. Maybe in a month or so, we'll try it again.
It's hard to rate something that just isn't right for my particular situation. It's super easy to install. It's feels solid on the bike. Everyone else loves it. Maybe I can get a ventriloquist doll to ride up front with me while my son takes a nap.
