Perfect ! Easy to install, well designed.. I can use for both of my children (7 and 3)..
My daughter was a little over 3 when we started using it and she's now almost 4. My 2 year old is envious of her and always keeps asking to sit on it. My daughter gets on and off herself (steps on my pedals, while I hold the bike) and likes to stand on her footpegs while I'm riding. Though there were times that she'd ask to sit on the yepp maxi that I have behind (which is where my 2 year old sits), the tyke toter is overwhelmingly her favourite.
The only negative is that it sometimes causes my seat (seatpost) to rotate. That's to be expected because the tyke toter is like a large lever with the seatpost as the fulcrum.
Gday, the seat took longer to receive probably due to the local Post Office where I am, totally incompetent. From out of the box I had the seat on in minutes and was zipping down the road with my 5yr old daughter. She was laughing, squealling and saying 'hello' to everyone we passed. We love the seat so much she wont let me drive her to school, I have to ride her to school on the bike. A short little 4 kilometres one way, but it gives us both a lot of fun. I have not been riding for several years with my carbon fibre mountain bike gathering dust in the shed. Now the truck is gathering dust and I am losing weight. So that's great as well. The biggest problem with the seat is when I get back from dropping off my little monkey, my 3 yr old son is at the door ready to go for a ride and won't take no for an answer. So I have to turn around and get pedaling. He loves it well. He sings and tells me 'faster daddy faster'. I am concerned we may get booked for speeding when going down hill. I highly recommend the seat to anyone wanting to spend some great hours and rides with their kids or nieces and nephews. It's very strong, quick to put on or remove, looks well built and should have a colour option other than orange to personalise it a bit.. Fork out the money and get a Tyke Toter I guarantee you will not be sorry. (I did review all other seats available and went with quality and build design and not by price.
I absolutely love this seat!! My toddler actually begs us to ride. It is very secure and fits all 6 of the bikes in the garage. We can even trail ride with this set up. For an active family, this has been a game changer for us. Everyone that sees us comments and asks about it.
Purchased for my Brompton folding bike having seen some pictures online of the setup. But the quick release mechanism is too small. The seat swung from side to side and frightened my son on dismount, and his weight swinging dented the seatpost. Subsequent attempt to tighten the quick release also dented the post! So, a max size seatpost would be helpful! New seat posts are not very expensive but still. The Toter worked great on my husband's conventional bike.
We make it clear on our website the Tyke Toter is not meant to be used on folding bikes. The seat post is too large and long. Tyke Toter will place too much torque on the seatpost to be safely used. It is meant for standard bicycles and we are glad to know it worked as it should.
This product is pre-tty expensive compared to the alternatives, but it is totally worth it.
1. The seat and handle do not get in the way. They fit in seamlessly with the rest of the bike.
2. The foot rest is hard to install correctly. However, once I got it installed correctly, it made a huge difference to the baby's experience.
3. The price is on the higher side. I wish there were competing products that could force the price to a reasonable range. The product quality is good and it is hard to complain.
Fantastic product, works like a charm since day-1. Kid loves it and is motivated to ride it every time. Spreads his arms in the air and imagines he's flying. The parents are also happy: the seat weighs nothing, is sturdily built, and is easily removed after child delivery to school. I wish you had a dealer in Europe!
I would give it 5 stars out of 6 (if it was an option), but a couple of modifications had to be done in my case, so I just leave it at 5:
1) the rubber handle grips were slided off by my child (in cold weather) so I had to glue them on to the tubes. A potentially dangerous feature.
2) the lower tube of my bike's frame is not of a circular cross-section (elliptic), so the foot peg does not sit tight regardless of the shims' thickness. Needs a custom adaptation.
But this is minor stuff.
I recommend the seat
I never leave reviews, but the Tyke Toter is awesome. I ride my 3 year old to preschool every morning and she has a blast. A huge additional benefit is getting her out of the house in the morning is way easier now because she looks forward to the ride so much.
After dropping her off I can quickly remove the seat for the rest of my commute.
Overall, great product. Highly recommend.
We decided to take our bikes on a road trip to the Canadian maritimes, my 3.5 yr old isn't riding a 2 wheeler yet and I did not have room for the bike trailer. I bought the Tyke Toter, received it in less than a week, installed it in under 5 min and now my 3 yr old begs to go for a bike ride. I feel that it is very safe and I have never felt like he was going to fall off, not even when going on rough trails, he just hangs on for the ride. Great product that gets lots of interest from others. Our longest ride to date has been well over 2 hrs and he is quite comfortable.
This seat is really fantastic. It's light, easy to install, and it's nice to have my daughter right in front of me. We don't have to spend our whole ride yelling "what did you say?" anymore!
I added a piece of foam pipe insulation around the section between the seat and handlebars. Just tied it on with zap straps. I did this because on our first ride, my daughter got crotched when we hit a bump.
I will also be adding plastic toe cages to the foot pegs so that her feet are less likely to dangle and get caught in the spokes of my front wheel. I'm just waiting for my order of Sugru to glue the toe cages on.
