The delivery was fast. The seat itself is great, really sturdy and swaps easily between bikes. It's a high quality construction and feels like it will last a long time. Having you kid so close and up front is much more engaging, the chat is never ending and my 3 year old now loves the commute to nursery!
I did mountain and forest trails with my 4 year old daughter and it was so much fun for both of us and felt very safe to. We also did longer tours up to 1 1/2 hours on steep and bumpy mountaintrails and she still couldn‘t get enough from it. I only regret, that I haven‘t baught my macride earlier.
Thanks macride for that awesome product!
It feels very natural to the kid ( I think ). At least my 2y3m girl kearned standing up on "rough" ( gravel ) terrain on our very first ride. Braking was no problem - we practiced some intensive slowdowns on our 2nd ride and it was surprisingly good - I just need to say "we're going to brake" to make sure she's prepared. She can even lean to the handlebar on some step uphills to let me load the front wheel! Her only complaint is that she can't spin her "pedals".
And b.t.w. My precious carbon Santa Cruz feels good - no contact with the frame ( Yea - I'm a bit paranoid here :) )
We love the Macride and use it weekly! Our 20 month d daughter loves it too and asks to go for rides all the time! One of the best baby gear purchases we have made.
We bought the MacRide for our toddler because he did not like riding in the carriage. I thought it was a bit pricey, but let me tell you, it was absolutely worth it!
He loves it so much, it’s hard to get him out of it. The seat cradles his bottom in such a way that he can’t slip out even when he wiggles around. And when going over bumps, it keeps its stability.
Note: We ride our bike on paved roads.
I recommend this to anyone who has children 2-5. Any older, I feel that it wouldn’t be comfortable for the riders. ;)
