My Trek mountain bike is about 1.25-1.5 inches and it almost didn't fit.

Within minutes the plastic the was meant to hold the bolt in place as you tighten down the nut stripped out so the bolt could not be tightened.

After not being able to assemble this, I took it to a bike shop and they were not able to assemble it either.

I bought this particular model about 1 year ago for my now, 4 year old son. We attached it to my hybrid bike which went on flawlessly. I've tried other bike seats in the past and this particular bike appear to be more complicated to install; however, it is very sturdy.

One fall morning, my family and I were on a long bike ride on a paved trail in Kansas City. It was fall, so a lot of the leaves have littered the tracks. We were going down on a somewhat steep hill (pretty fast) when we hit a large hole covered by a pile of wet leaves. We lost control, swerved, and suffered a fairly big crash. I suffered a torn meniscus on my left knee as I tried to stop the bike from falling on its side too strong, thus buckling my leg in. My son was asleep on the bike seat with a helmet on. I had tied an old sweatshirt on the side to give him more cushion room while sleeping.

The bike landed hard on its side, but the bike seat absolutely absorbed the impact away from my child. His helmet was not even touched. He barely noticed, because he was mildly started and instantly went back to sleep comfortably.

If it fits your bike, then I HIGHLY recommend this bike seat for the price. The plastic molding around the seat works very well as a protective feature. I simply cannot see many other seats providing this much protection.

I wanted to leave a review of this seat since our experience was so different from the other reviews. I was able to install the seat by myself in less than 45 minutes with my 2 year old in the way the whole time. I had no problems mounting the frame onto the seat post. Obviously if this carrier is not compatible with your bike frame, it will not work.

The seat itself is great. My daughter is 29lbs and has plenty of room to grow. I'm 5'2 so maybe my height is the reason my feet never hit the foot rests? I am not a bike expert and I don't have an expensive bike, I didn't even check the specifications before buying yet it was very easy to put together. We were cruising around the neighborhood (in her new princess helmet of course) less than an hour after I pulled it out of the box.

The loose screws and bolts are separated into different sealed and labeled compartments for each step of assembly- (i.e. Step 1 use parts in compartment A.) This keeps you from having to sort through dozens of washers and bolts looking for the right one. There are 3 plastic pieces for the seat itself: the bottom that is mounted to the bike, the back of the seat which gets bolted to the bottom, and a cross piece that she can hold onto.

The fabric liner has extra padding on the bottom. There is a 3 point harness that goes over the head and rests on the shoulders and between the legs. An additional harness goes across the waist. After tightening all the harnesses, she was very secure and I could see how this would keep her strapped in should we ever have an unfortunate fall. Overall, I would recommend this seat.

We've had this seat for two years. Here's my experience:

1. Installation. Takes some time, but the instructions are good. It's one of those installations that after you install it, you say to yourself "is that right?". However, I have shaken this seat HARD many times just to make sure it was attached solidly. It is.

2. As for the assertion regarding "Seat can be removed from rack in seconds for solo rides". I guess you can measure a flight from New York to San Fran in seconds, and no, it doesn't take that long to remove the seat. However, this seat has three long small diameter bolts. It's difficult to get the leverage to tighten them down by hand, and just as difficult to remove. Also, the seat cushion adds to the difficult of getting under it to screw the back bolts. Feeding the bolts into the rack can also offer challenges. If you leave the seat on all the time, you'll bypass this challenge.

3. Now the reason we decided to get rid of this seat. We have two child. When I'm riding behind the wife, I often ask her to stop because the seat looks like it's about to come off. Anytime my wife hits a bump, the seat sways a lot. I shake it hard again (see the trend), check the bolts, the rack, etc. The seat is solidly attached, it's not coming off. My guess, because there are no shocks for the seat, anytime the bike shakes, the seat has to give somewhere, and it looks like the seat is going to come off. The wife and I were biking in DC and a cyclists past her and said "is that seat installed correctly".

Even though this seat is attached correctly, I don't trust it because it always looks like it's about to come off. We just bought a Topeak child seat which has shocks on it, so it cushions the ride and doesn't swaying excessively. I'm about to buy another one for my bike. It literally is a seat that takes seconds to mount and unmount. It's twice as much, but I feel more secure using the Topeak seat.

This is a terrible product. I'm not a novice at assembling things, and this should have been relatively simple.

I fought with this for about 3 hours trying to make it work to enjoy a mild winters day. There's a lot of bad in this review...

1 - The supplied mounting hardware strips the plastic housings. Since the hardware has smoothed heads, it's next to impossible to make anything fit tight. The entire seat was wobbly.

2 - The seat post bracket is not made for 90% of bikes. I had to bend it to make it fit. Which caused the supplied bolt to barely fit.

3 - The seat stay brackets are awkward to work with. They don't fit correctly, and the plasti-dip coating doesn't grip the bolt to allow you tighten enough. I spent more time fighting with this than anything.

4 - If you have a shorter bike with a bottom bracket that is positioned more towards the rear (Road Bikes, Commuters...), your heel will get destroyed by the footrest unless you pedal with your heels.

5 - The safety bar or whatever it's called requires two hands. Unless you have the bike in a rack, it's difficult to balance the bike with a child in the seat and put in the bar.

6 - The seat back screws are not easy to put in. They were thoughtful enough to put two access grooves in for two of the 8 screws, but that is it.

After fighting with getting it tight enough to fit and being sort of happy with it, I put my son in for a spin around the block. I turned around immediately and pulled him out. Took it off and took it back to the store. The only Pro I have for this is that its cheap. You get what you pay for.

I spent a lot of time researching other seats, everything going up to the $200-$300 seats. Apparently nothing is perfect. I ended up getting the Instep trailer and couldn't be happier. That is actually worth every penny and is very sturdy.
