    Default Help with baby bike seat please.

    Anyone know where I can get a good baby bike seat from?

    I have a big 66cm road bike and DDs old rickety bike seat isn't cutting it.

    For starters she's s big 2yo with long legs, when she's in her seat, her knees touch the underside of my bike seat. I can't put my seat up any higher or I wouldn't be able to touch the ground, & I can't put her seat any further back.

    When she kicks her legs it 'interferes' with my pedaling & is dangerous.

    Anyway.

    Anyone know where I can get a good, big baby seat from???.. Preferably a reclining one

    Have you considered a bike trailer? I find it easier to use and the kids have access to a drink ( most have drink bottle holders) and snacks and more protection from the sun.

    Hi thanks Lulu I have thought about a trailer but.. They're heavy DD is a whopping 14.5 kg and we live in a hilly area, I don't think I'd get far towing a trailer aswell. Plus I'm scared to ride on the roads. And the trailers look too big for the foot path?

    They are surprisingly easy to tow ,I take 2 kids weighing 35kgs between them and the drinks and stuff and I am not very fit but make it up hills fine. The single trailers are more compact and have 5 point harness and some have extrta space so the kids can wear helmets comfortably and antiroll devices incase the bike tips. I bought mine secondhand as the better brands can be a bit dear but they last many years also the alloy frames are lighter. As for width I have one of the widest trailers the double pacific and I can fit it thru most bike path barriers without getting off and have no trouble passing pedestrians on smaller paths and mine converts to a stoller too so I can pop into the supermarket for a bit of shopping( it fits thru the entrance at most shops) then bike it home.
