Top 10 Best Child Bicycle Seats Reviewed In 2016

Most child bicycle seats are suitable for children between the ages of about 9 months and 4 years. Your child ability to sit up unsupported, on the floor rather than propped up with cushions, will determine the lower age limit. Some bicycle seats recline and children as young as 6 months i.e. those who can sit up when propped up can use these. The reclining seat is better because it enables your child to drift off to sleep without slumping forwards or sideways. The upper seat limit is restricted by child’s weight rather than age. Child bicycle seats are usually rated for passengers weighing up to around 44 pounds.

The child seat puts weight behind the rear axle and this impacts your handling of the bike.

This is because the handling of the bike becomes progressively worse the heavier the passenger and especially with a rear fitting seat.
