Updated Wednesday 30th January 2019

 

Introduce your kids to some outdoor fun and action with a child bike seat! get fit, and let them come out exploring with you!

By Vaughn

I quite often chuck my backpack on and take my daughter to our local park to feed the ducks and have a mini picnic.

Interaction and off-road capability are what the front mounted seats excel at, having your child in-between your arms lets you point out the sights and sounds, have a chat and let you see what they are up to all without having to take your eyes off the road!

Front Mounted Child And Baby Bike Seats

When shopping for a child seat, one type may stand out for you more than the other, front mounted or rear mounted for example. Sometimes your bike dictates which one will work for you or know a friend who has used them before.

Both designs work really well and offer different experiences for you and your kiddie.

copilot cabbie child bike seat

CoPilot Cabbie Child Carrier

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range 9 months up until 3 – 4 depending on size
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 33 lbs

The Cabbie is a really unique looking seat, I have played around mounting one of these to a bike, and even though it is a front riding seat, it actually attaches onto your bike seat tube (not seat post), its a very cool looking seat but it is more compact so your child may grow out of it a bit sooner, but it is also the cheapest in this lineup

  • The Plastic attachment mounts onto the seat tube and extends the seat forwards to rest just behind your handlebars, you can adjust the seat fore and aft by way of a removable pin, helpful to fine tune for knee clearance or issues trying to clear you handlebars
  • The integrated hand hold loop gives your child something to hold onto and helps to stiffen the seat
  • This seat may work for you if you are having troubles trying to find something to fit a lower front end threadless headset, providing your seat tube is clear of any cable guides or other attachments
  • A low-cost option child seat, without sacrificing extra features

The legs rest adjust up and down easily with a detent spring and they have a well-guarded foothold with rubber straps, also the cushioning for the seat is a giant silicone rubber pad, it’s quite springy and soft and give just enough bump absorption combined with the flex in the steel supporting struts.

The seat is quite compact in overall size, so the timeframe of use might be a bit shorter than other seats, but the small size also gives more space for the parent to move around on the bike.

 

iBert safe t seat front mounted child bike seat

iBert Safe t Seat Front Child Bike Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 1 up to 4
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 38 lbs

Read my iBert Safe-T-Seat Review

The iBert seat is a nice, simple design that uses a robust clamp to mount it to your bikes steerer tube. Quickly removable and easily locked into place, it is an excellent all-round seat that even has a built-in steering wheel!

  • The rigid, one-piece plastic body is very strong and uses a large stamped aluminum plate riveted directly to the underneath of the seat, this slides onto an aluminum arm which is attached to your steering column on the bike. This is a super strong connection that will last a long time, and while being strong, the seat is easily removed if you would like to ride without the seat attached, although, this does leave the arm protruding outwards towards the rider and I would recommend this seat on a bike you intend to keep a seat fitted to
  • The fully enclosed leg rests to keep your kiddies legs where they should be, and they are high enough and clear from the wheel or any other moving parts
  • My daughter likes to pretend she is steering the bike! the inbuilt steering wheel turns freely and has a soft foam pad just-in-case we hit a big bump
  • The iBert hang on by using a  well-engineered clamp and seat base unit which is crucial for safety and proper fitting of the seat to the bike.
  • It even comes in different colors, green, red and pink (I have the pink one)

The iBert is a very simple and easy to use design with a hinged safety bar with a steering wheel that gives your child something to hold. The seat does not have any kind of headrest or neck support so if your toddler tends to fall asleep while riding it may not be the best option as they can sometimes fall to one side instead of being held upright by a high back.

Some fiddling around may be required to get your seat positioned at a higher level if you prefer to ride with straighter knees as the seat can interfere with your knees on some bicycles, bicycles higher at the front are better in this case, this is the case with most front mounted seats although the iBert is one of the seats that gives more knee clearance.

 

WeeRide Kangaroo child bike seat

WeeRide Kangaroo Child Bike Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 1 year and up
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 39 lbs

See my WeeRide Kangaroo full review

The WeeRide Kangaroo is a popular and well thought out design. I must have fitted at least 50 of these seats to customers bikes and have only had about 3 or 4 that it didn’t work with. It sits in a similar place to the iBert seat but it’s actually attached via a dedicated strut that runs from the bike headset area to the seat post.

  • A big padded front area helps with support from any bigger bumps or sudden stops, this can happen from time to time, it doesn’t turn like the iBert but is bigger and provides a good handhold for the child
  • The WeeRide is independent of the bike steering as it sits on the included adjustable strut, this means there is no extra weight directly attached to your bike’s steering, although it does only take one or two rides to get used to the heavier feel of the iBert I would say
  • The whole seat removes with a turn of a small plastic covered hex screw, the steel strut stays attached to the bike but it doesn’t interfere with pedaling and its also less intrusive in the event of an ‘unplanned dismount’

The footbeds are easily adjusted via a quick-release lever and the seatbelt system is very secure and will accommodate many different child sizes.

The installation of the seat is a bit more time consuming and takes a little bit longer to get it just right, there are different screw lengths included to for the bracket which is needed it your bike has a large diameter head tube.

The strut MUST attach to the frame of the bicycle and not the steerer column, I have seen these fitted to the turning steerer column which is dangerous as it affects your steering.

Your child sits in a more upright position in comparison to the iBert which is a bit more reclined, and your child is a bit more central on the bike and not so close to the handlebars.

 

 

Cycling Deal front mounted child bike seat

CyclingDeal Bicycle Kids Front Baby Bike Carrier

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 1 Year up until 33 lbs
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 33 lbs

A budget seat that meets the USA safety standards, it’s mounted onto your bikes seat tube, so if you don’t have space up front this might be worth a look.

  • Comes with all the accessories needed to fit included in the price, and the frame mount bracket is quick release, making taking the seat off easy
  • The 5 point harness has plenty of adjustment, while the straps are lightweight, the buckle is secure and tricky enough to stop little hands from unclipping it
  • Retains the features of adjustable footrests, a built-in leg shield and a bolt on handhold that more expensive seats have

Considering the low cost of this seat, and the number of positive reviews it’s received, it’s a great buy, plus it meets the USA safety standard.

Check your bikes seat tube for a front derailleur cable guide, if there is one there, it may interfere with the bracket clamp, this is one of the few front seats that use the seat tube as a mounting point.

 

Peg Perego Orion Front Mount Child Seat

Peg Perego Orion Front Mount Child Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range 1 – 3 years
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 33 lbs

The Peg Perego uses a clever clamp that attaches to the headtube of your bicycle, this makes it handy if you don’t have much space on your steerer tube or low headset height or welds that make fitting the Weeride not an option.

  • The seat uses steel bars which slide into the headtube mounted bracket, the flex of the bars provide a small amount of cushioning for your toddler and makes the seat detachable at the push of a button
  • Like the WeeRide, the Peg Perego uses a 3 point seatbelt harness for safety and has a plastic loop around the front of the seat for your child to hold on to
  • The footrests are fully adjustable and come with a strap which moves along with the footbed
  • The padding is removable for washing and is waterproof

The seat’s point of difference is its clever mounting system (headtube mount) and the more budget price. It’s a more compact seat but does sit further back so just be mindful if you are a taller rider as it may interfere with your pedaling.

Also, just check which brakes your bikes running, with some cantilever brakes the front cable tends to sit quite close and runs parallel to your bike’s headtube which may rub or not allow you to fit the mounting bracket.

 

Thule Yepp Mini child bike seat

Thule Yepp Mini Child Bike Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 1 – 3 years
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 33 lbs

This is the front version of the rear mount Yepp Next Maxi, Thule acquired popular Yepp seats and rebranded their line, having dealt with a lot of Thule product and having fitted many Thule RideAlongs, this little seat is well made and well thought out, price wise it’s directly in line with the iBert

  • The Yepp has a 5 point safety harness to securely hold your little one in over rough ground with a thick pad to help with bump absorption, the shoulder straps have rubber pads to help stop the belts from moving around or slipping on your child’s shoulders
  • The Yepp’s clamp fit threadless headset’s and the threaded style headset, there is a separate adaptor available for threadless headless that you will need if there isn’t any room between the bottom of your stem and top of your headset, this adaptor takes the place of a spacer and uses a loop clamp over the stem to stop it swinging side to side
  • The Yepp is locked into place with a key so if you park up somewhere and leave your bike, the key lock is a handy theft deterrent

As with the other front seats, there is a place for your kiddies hands, something to hold onto and provide a bit of extra stability. This is a bar on the Yepp and not a flat surface, so there are plenty of places for your child to hang on to, but may not have quite the support in the event of a quick stop.

The Yepp does sit a bit higher than some other seats so if you are a taller rider looking for more knee clearance you might want to consider this one.

The Yepp does clamp to your steering column, keep this in mind if you’re considering this seat, it does change the way your bike steers and is something you may want to practice with first if you think your balance isn’t the best.

I would usually recommend parking your front wheel between your legs to hold the bike stable when putting your child in it, this makes it easier and safer to have your hands free to hold your child, and it works better than leaning your bike up against a wall.

 

Thule RideAlong Mini child bike seat

Thule RideAlong Mini Bike Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 9 months to 1 year up until 3 years
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 33 lbs

See my Thule RideAlong Mini Review

The Thule RideAlong Mini is quite similar to the Yepp above but the main difference is the one piece chassis that has molded-in leg supports with adjustable footbeds.

  • The front version of the rear mounted Ridealong built to the same high standard as other Thule products. The 5 point safety harness is child proof with large buttons making it easier to get your child unclipped
  • Can fit directly onto threaded and non-threaded headsets as the clamp adjust to suit both diameters, and the whole seat removes with the click of a button underneath the seat leaving a small but not intrusive clamp on the bike
  • There is a loop style bar that your child can hold onto when riding for stability, and the footbeds are quickly adjusted without tools to accommodate growing legs

There is around 28mm or one inch of space required under the stem to accommodate the bracket and would work better on larger framed bikes as the seat is a little bit bulky.

Visually this seat does look quite similar to the Peg Perego Orion, but the RideAlong is of higher quality and has a good range of aftermarket accessories and fittings to choose from.

 

 

 

Hamax Observer front mounted child bike seat

Hamax Observer Front Child Bike Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 9 months up to 33 lbs
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 33 lbs

The Hamax observer is a good looking seat that is quite compact and provides a little bit more extra legroom for your knees as it sits up quite high, it uses a 3 point safety harness versus the 5 point of the Thule RideAlong

  • The Hamax uses slip over rubber grippers on the shoulder straps to securely grip your child’s shoulders and prevent them from moving around or sliding down, also there is a large plastic sliding buckle to adjust their length without to much trouble
  • There is a windscreen that is sold separately that clips into the mounting bracket to keep the wind chill down and bugs out!
  • There is also a safety lock which is tamper proof and helps prevent theft if you intend to leave your bike locked up when out

One thing to note is if you intend to mount this seat to a threadless headset, you will need an extra bracket which is not included with the seat when purchased.

The Hamax also has removable and washable padding and integrated armrests at the side of the seat.

 

BoBike mini city front child bike seat

BoBike Mini City Front Child Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 9 months to 1 year up until 3 years
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 33 lbs

A good alternative to the Thule Yepp Nexxt child seat above, if you’re a bit more budget conscious but don’t want to sacrifice safety and quality, there’s even a motorbike style windshield available if you want to get out but the windchill might be a bit cold.

  • The BoBike Mini City will fit both threaded and non-threaded headset styles and uses a slip over style bracket which is then tightened into place
  • Solid and secure adjustable footrests

The BoBike Mini City also attaches to your steering column and moves side to side with the bike’s steering, and it also provides good knee clearance for taller riders.

The Mini City uses rubber padded shoulder straps for good fit and security, and the straps actually lock into place to prevent them from falling off your child’s shoulders.

The height of the seat may be a problem if your a shorter rider with a high front handlebar height and your steering will change due to the weight of the seat.

There are a couple of handy aftermarket accessories including the windshield and even a cargo box that attaches to the front of the bike, so you can put your picnic stuff in there when you out and about!

 

Front Mounted Seats For Off-Road

 

do little front mount child bike seat

Do Little N.Z. Front Child Bike Seat

Where to Buy: DoLittle.co.nz

  • Age Range: 18 months to 7 years, or 1.4m
  • Maximum recommended Weight 61.8 lbs

The Do Little child bike seat comes all the way from New Zealand. Designed and refined over the last 20 years, it will fit almost any double tubed bike using a simple bracket which rests on your bikes top tube.

  • Super strong, steel frame construction which is still light-weight, no moving parts to wear or come loose.
  • The Do Little has a nice comfy padded seat to help with the offroad bumps. This set it apart from its competitors which use a thin plastic style seat
  • A super fun and engaging riding position for your child, they are free to hold themselves and move with the bike’s movements.

The Do Littles footrests are one of the better designs compared to the MacRide and the Tyke Toter, they are a full steel loop the hold their feet nice and securely.

Multiple frame brackets are included in the box to help with sloping frames, also there is are longer screws to allow for thicker tubed bikes. Inside the side plates are rubber plates to prevent the seat from damaging your frame, also it’s carbon and aluminum frame compatible.

macride front mounted child bike seat

Mac Ride Front Mounted Child Bike Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 2 – 5 years
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 60lbs

This is a different take on the front mounted seat, it’s great if you love your mountain biking and are looking to take your toddler along with you. Your child sits on the small integrated seat and actually holds onto the handlebars so they get a more exciting ride and are able to feel the bars turning from side to side.

  • The age range of the Mac ride is suggested from 2 -5 years old, although older than 5 is fine if your child is a little bit smaller.
  • There are no straps or safety belts on the Mac Ride, as this seat is designed for everything from commuting to mountain biking, the belts would be more of a danger if you did manage to crash, this allows your child to be separate from the bike and come away from it which is safer in an offroad situation
  • Your child is free to move around, shift their weight, and even stand up out of the saddle, so once they get the idea of taking their weight by their legs and keeping their bum out of the saddle over rough ground and small bumps they will be having a blast

The Mac Ride uses a telescoping strut and a minimal spacer that slips over and replaces one of your existing spacers (you must have a threadless style headset and have a 10mm spacer to accommodate the Mac Ride one)

Nice and quick to remove, and no obtrusive brackets that are left on the bike, meaning once the spacers are on the bike you are good to go, and it also folds up when not in use.

If you have an odd shaped or even a carbon frame your good to go, the Mac Ride does not contact any part of your frame and providing you have a small amount of seat post showing you can fit it to your dropper post.

Riding offroad may take a bit of getting used to and you have to make sure your bike is up to the task, remember you will be braking for 2 people and be mindful of the traction of your tires. The Fun factor is huge and its an excellent way to get your child out to forest or trail networks.

 

 

tyke toter front mounted child bicycle seat

Tyke-Toter Front Mount Bike Toddler Seat

Where to Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range 2 -5 years
  • Maximum Recommended Weight: 45 lbs

Another take on an off-road capable seat, the Tyke-Toter is a bit more minimal in design and uses a small footrest and like the Mac Ride, no seatbelts which are a bit safer for the more challenging offroad terrain. The tool-free installation and removable keep things simple if you also use your bike without the child seat.

  • The Tyke-Toter is very similar to the Mac Ride, your child sits in the same position on a small plastic perch, although the Tike-Toters saddle is flatter so it doesn’t hold your child when the bike is pointed up or downhill as well as the Mac Ride
  • Will fit most bikes out there, the clamping mechanism is pretty simple, although you may have to run the seat slightly higher if you have a smaller framed bike
  • Unlike the Mac Ride, the Tyke-Toter has an integrated handlebar, this is just an extension of the seats frame so your child’s hands stay on the seat rather than the handlebar, the rubber grips might be a bit better for your child’s hand than holding onto the bare handlebar of the Mac Ride

The footrest design is pretty minimal and Tyke-Toter does provide a warning to keep your child’s feet away from the moving front wheel, this is something you will have to consider if you are thinking about this seat. The Mac Ride uses a more secure perch for little feet and is better at stopping them coming away from the seat frame.

The Tyke-Toter is a more budget-friendly seat that will allow you to take your toddler out onto the trails for some serious fun and enjoyment.

 

UrRider UltraLight Mid-Mounted Child Seat

Where To Buy: Amazon.com

  • Age Range: 2 – 6 Years Old

With a superlight design, the UrRider is a minimal yet fully functional mid-mounted child seat, with a generous seat and large handrail, your toddler will easily ride in comfort while you can keep an eye on them as you go.

  • The main frame is easily removable via the quick-release fittings, this removes the need for scrambling around looking for tools if removal is needed, also it completely folds up flat for easier storage when not in use.
  • The seat frame is made from aircraft grade aluminum and uses stainless steel fittings, the aluminum keeps the weight low (at only 2 pounds) while the stainless steel fitting keeps the rust at bay.
  • The UrRider is one of the easiest front mounted child seats to install with lots of adjustment and no complicated fitting issues, just make sure you pick the right version for your bike.

The UrRider is available in two versions, the Mountain Bike/Hybrid/Fitness bike design and the Cruiser/Foldable/City bike version. The Mountain bike version is designed for dual tubed frames (a top and down tube) while the City bike design handle frames which use a single main tube.

For general riding and light offroad fun, the UrRider is fully capable, with large contact points and super quick and easy adjustment it’s perfect if you change between bikes or riders or are looking for something super light.

 

Front Mounted Child Bike Seats Shopping Guide

  • Age Range and maximum weight: 9 months to 1 year up until 3 -4  and 33 lbs for most seats, mid-mounted seats usually have a higher weight capacity and age (up to 6 years old)

Getting Started

Your child should be ready anywhere between 9 months to a year. This varies because it’s usually when the toddler is able to sit comfortably upright and able to support their head.

Keep in mind there is extra weight from the helmet.

The upper limit is usually determined by the seat size. Front mounted seats are smaller and have a lower weight limit because of their mounting clamps.

Do front mounted seats make steering difficult?

Well, I would have to say that depends, having your child sitting centrally on the bike make for a well balanced and maneuverable ride. Some of the seats actually attach to the steerer of the bike meaning the whole seat turns side to side with the handlebars. This can take a bit of getting used to at first as the steering may feel a bit heavier or wobbly so do make sure to practice on your balancing skills.

Headset and steering area fitting

There are two main headsets you will come across with bikes, the threaded and non-threaded or a-headset style. The threaded headset system is easily adjustable so you can get a bit more knee clearance, while the threadless headset requires spacers to account for the height change and is a bit less easily adjusted.

Knee clearance

If your a particularly short rider or your bike is quite small you may have a bit of trouble with space, the front seats do sit pretty central so can interfere with your pedalling by touching your knees, in some cases,  you might  have to adjust your pedaling style by slightly kinking your knees outwards to clear the seat.

When installing my iBert seat, I mounted it up as high as I could get it for better knee clearance. If you have a quick measure of the length from your headset to seat post, it should be greater than 18 – 19 inches which will give you enough leg space.

What type of bikes do they fit on to?

They will fit most styles of bikes but they are best suited for bikes with a more upright riding position. Road racing bikes or mountain bikes that are low at the front end with a longer handlebar stem require you to lean over forward meaning you may have trouble steering and riding safely.

Here are a few pros and cons of the front mounted seats

Pros

  • See the road – Your toddler has a good view of what’s ahead and it can be more fun and engaging
  • Turns with the bike – Some of the seats turn with the handlebars giving a bit of extra excitement
  • Chat – It’s easier to have a chat with them when they’re right next to you
  • Something to hang onto – Some seats have an integrated pad or steering wheel as extra support

Cons

  • Leg clearance – Front seats can rub your knees and force your legs outwards while pedaling, this is more noticeable on smaller framed bikes
  • Wind chill – Your child takes the full force of the wind when riding, with the rear mount seats your provide a bit of shelter for them
  • Balance – Your steering is changed when the seats are attached to the handlebars

 

In Conclusion

I personally own the iBert Safe T Seat and have been riding it for a year and a half now, I like the aluminum clamp and the security it provides, so, all in all, it’s probably one of my favorites. I  would recommend the WeeRide which is a good budget seat but has a super strong mounting system.

    Wow this looks amazing. I have a 1and 1/2 year old and would like to get him used to being on bikes as I think my wife and I waited too long with our 5 year old. I will book mark your site for future reference. Thanks for sharing, Kenny

      Hi Kenny

      For sure, 1 1/2 is a perfect age to start getting them interested, having a decent seat in which they feel safe and comfy is well worth it plus the family gets to spend some exercise together.

    A fantastic choice of front mounted children seats.

    I’ve seen some like that but never noticed that there is such a great choice and variety. I bet kids totally prefer to sit in front of the driver than behind.

    I think i’d choose the Peg Perego Orion because it looks very safe and for the rather hot climate here it does have a cooling seat.

    The Tyke Toter looks great too but I’m afraid my daughter finds it too simplistic 🙂

      The front seats make for a great child and parent experience, and make a great alternative to the rear mounted versions.

    Your article was very interesting and educational!  I loved the videos and I could tell your daughter was enjoying the experience.  I have a couple of questions, the first is, how much practice does it take to get used to having the seat in front of you and does it add a lot more weight to the handle bars and maneuvering your bike?  Secondly, how difficult is it to see over the toddlers head?

    I really like the idea that if you have a baby under 12 months of age, you purchase the one that the baby will fit in now and it will work for that child until they are 3-4 years old!  The ages/wt of the child and the seat size is clarified well in the graph you presented.  I really liked being able to compare the different brands with one glance.

    I think this is a wonderful idea for introducing your child to outdoor activities at a young age and I will encourage my sons to invest in these for their children.  This activity could be a great childhood memory!

    Thank you for sharing this information.

      Hi Cora

      It depends on your level of confidence, the seats that clip onto the steering will alter the way your bike feels, there will be more weight and heaviness to the steering but you should get used to it pretty quick, most likely within 3 or 4 rides, the frame mounted seats don’t change your steering,you will just feel more weight on your bike which isn’t too much of a difference for you.

      In most cases, your toddlers head doesn’t affect your vision, if your bikes really high at the front end in relation to your preferred seat height or if your shorter in height you might get interference, if you think this may be the case, having a lower seat like the WeeRide, or even a rear mounted child bike seat would help with this.

      Hope that helps!

    Wow! I did not know there are so many types of child/baby front bike seats out in the market. My favorite is the WeeRide Kangaroo Child Carrier. It’s great child can ride in front of and under the care of parent. It also gives new found confidence for child to learn riding bikes quickly as they look forward to their own ride experience.

      Hi Reinaldo, there are many options for sure. I agree if it’s fun for the child they will have the motivation to go on their own when they become old enough
