Great product — works as advertised.
I am a male who is a little over 5" 2', so I was concerned about whether there would be enough room for me to see / pedal / clamp the device to my seat. None of these has been a major problem, although I need to adjust my pedaling a bit (I point my knees slightly more outward than usual, but not so much that it is uncomfortable/problematic). I had just barely enough room to clamp the device to the seat post on my Trek — but did have enough. I use one of the (included and otherwise not needed) adjustment pads between the curved part of the device and my bike frame to keep the Tyke Toter from rubbing against the frame. (I don't use the adhesive, the device is such a tight fit due to my height that it stays in place between the Tyke Toter and the frame.) I live in a mountainous area, and going up hills with my (~40 lb.) tyke is a challenge, but probably not very different in difficulty to having a child on the back of the bike. I haven't used that type of seat, so I'm not sure. The hardest part for me, especially being short, is to get off of the bike without tilting it so much that my little guy is startled or at much of an angle. However, this, and all of the above, have not been too much of an adjustment to justify the purchase.
The upsides that others have mentioned make the Tyke Toter really great — my son loves, loves, loves riding this way (he does fine hanging on and this is easy to assist with/monitor); we get a lot of grins and waves from people we pass who think that this is a really cool way to ride with your kid; it is getting him used to the sensation and joy of cycling; the device is easy to reattach/remove; costs less and is less bulky than a big plastic seat. My son and I have really bonded over our rides together. For me, all of this makes the Tyke Toter worth the small trade-offs mentioned above.

Bought it after a lot of deliberation. I wanted an easy to use, detach-attach, kid friendly seat. I find this product absolutely amazing. Back in India, having a kid seat on top tube is very common. However, I find Tyketoter complement that on mens bike and is probably the only good option for a female bike. Kid needs to be good at motor skills, grabbing handles, maintaining posture, so a no-no for kids less than 3 years (go for those eloborate seats).
My daughter is absolutely delighted with this product, makes her feel the air as we speed up carefully. No problem with leg rest as of now. I found a small bolt that fits the brake cables to the down tube. This is well placed. I put one strap of the leg rest above that nail and one below. However, I am unable to stop a sideways swing of the leg rest (yup, only with force), but thats OK since it does not potentially let her leg get into problematic positions.
Only issue is sideways swing (minor) of the tyketoter since it is not totally possible to close the clamp under tight conditions, one has to loosen it a bit and then clamp. The mechanism for clamping can be improvised.
Overall, very happy, I hope improved versions come along.
