This unique child seat is positioned in the middle of the adult bike for better balance. It's safer too as your child's feet are enclosed and your arms are around them. Your child has the same view as you, rather than of your back, and you can talk to them and point things out on the journey.
The WeeRide Classic is the original and best front mounted child seat. This is because it isn’t actually front mounted, but is centre mounted. Front mounted seats put all the child’s weight on the handlebars which means steering is more difficult, your child gets thrown around, and most importantly, are unsafe in our opinion if you need to stop quickly.
Our centre mounted seat puts all the weight centrally and your child is safely wrapped in your arms. The first time you ride the seat you realise why the reviews are so good as it is such fun being able to chat to your child and point things out.
Includes a headrest so it's safe for your child to fall asleep
Seat is very comfortable for your child
The seat does not interfere with the steering because it is not connected to the handlebars
The child seat does not move when you turn the handlebars so it's more comfortable
The seat connections mean that the seat does not wobble like some other front seats
Fits your child from when they can support their head until they can go on their own bike, ages 1 to 4 approximately

WILL IT FIT MY BIKE?
In 99% of cases it fits. We don’t advise for racing style bikes where you lean forward too much.
If you look on the VIDEO page you can see how the bar fits
You can always send me a photo or the full name of your bike and I can let you know.
YES it uniquely fits Full Suspension Bikes
YES it fits oversized head tubes
DOES IT AFFECT MY RIDING STYLE?
Yes, there is a very small change to your riding style. Having used the seat for 3 years I can tell you it is a minimal change. If you look at the feedback we have, it has never been mentioned as an issue. The seat can be fixed further towards the handle bars to minimise this effect further. Plus if you wanted to ride an extremely long distance or very fast, as you may do without the child, the seat removes in seconds.
So I would say the change to your riding style is negligible.
