We purchased the Bell Classic Bicycle Child Carrier based on its reviews and as an economical choice for our almost 2-year old who will only get about 1 year's use from it.

Now that it is on and we have test driven it, we like how he fits in it, and we feel comfortable with the safety it provides. It is nice, but not exceptional.

But getting the seat on....

Suffice to say that, as best as we can determine, this Child Carrier is made to attach to a road bike and not a hybrid bike, like ours (a Trek 7000). Our frame is thicker than that of a road bike, so attaching the seat to the rear fork was just barely possible with the hardware supplied. It was possible, but squeezing the brackets around the fork so that they were close enough for us to even begin tightening the nut took a lot of muscle! We also had the same problem as another reviewer, in that our bike has a quick-release seat, and does not have the kind of seat post bolt that the seat needs to be attached. We were able to remedy that by removing the quick-release mechanism, going to the local hardware store to purchase a 1/4-inch hex bolt (which fit in our bike's seat bracket), and using that instead of the provided 8 mm Hex Bold.

At one point in our construction of the Child Carrier, we got particularly frustrated, and tried to find some customer support. There was a 1-800 number, which was closed on the weekend, and absolutely zero on-line support. I have gotten used to having some sort of on-line resources available to me, even if it is only a copy of the owner's manual, so the absolute lack of *anything* was very frustrating. (There is plenty of information for Bell bicycle helmets, but nothing for the child carrier.)

So bottom line, if you have a hybrid bicycle (or, heaven forbid, a mountain bike), be aware that it might not assemble as easily as it should, and you may need to make an extra run to the hardware store!

I purchased this child carrier seat for when we visit the grandparents. At home a have a trailer that both of our kids ride in. This little bike seat was perfect for the occastional use. Some of the 'shields' that are meant to protect the child from the wheel are a little flimsy, so I would not want to take them on and off on a regular basis. Once it's on the bike, it should probably stay there. But for our purposes where I didn't want to spend hundreds of dollars on a second bike trailer to be used for maybe a month out of the year, that was great bang for the buck. I had my 2 year old riding in the back and he was perfectly happy & safe.

This seat was easy enough for my wife to install properly the first time by herself. My son's feet fit fine in the stirrups and he feels safe when we ride. The seat is very sturdy and I'm still trying figure out what one of the other reviewers was referring to when they said that this seat wasn't safe (I think they probably installed it incorrectly). You really can't go wrong with this seat and the price is likely the best you'll find. The only thing that might bother someone is that the safety bar of the seat might touch your bottom; but it really doesn't inhibit me from being comfortable or pedaling.

I don't know what the problem was with so many people... I thought this was very easy to put together and attach to my bike. It's sturdy enough for my 2 yr old and we go on rides all the time. And not to be sexist, but I am a woman and I only had a wrench and a screwdriver. Buy this- its a great price and will fit your needs perfectly.

Good quality product at a great price. Not as cushy or substantial as some others, but not as pricey either. This is a great way to ride with your little one securely. We are very happy with this purchase. One note, the 'handle bar' gets in the way when my husband rides, so we don't use it and the leg openings are a little small for older toddlers. Otherwise, no problems.

The seat would not fit on my Cannondale F300 ([...] There are three main issues:

1. The seat stays (diagonal frame members from axle to base of seat) are too thick for the clamps to go around.
2. Even if the seat stays were thinner, the rear derailleur cable runs down the right side seat stay and the clamps would interfere with it.
3. To mount to the seat tube, I would have had to remove my quick release seat bolt and replace it with the included bolt. However, the bolt included was too thick to fit in the seat clamp and the quick release did not have enough extra length to attach this seat.

With all this said, I ended up installing it on my wife's bike, a vintage Schwinn women's frame bike. It fits fine on this bike with no issues. The bike has thin seat stays, a seat post clamp with a large enough hole and no derailleur or other cabling to get in the way. The foot guards are very cheaply made and the attachment ties included are worthless. I ended up attaching the guard with zip ties.

Altogether, an inexpensive seat that will suffice on older bikes.

For my bike, I ended up ordering the CoPilot Taxi CoPilot Taxi Bicycle Child Seat, which mounts to the built in rack mounts on my frame.

I slaved over assembling this seat over the weekend and finding a way to attach it to my bike.

I have a mountain bike with a quick-release seat...so finding a spot to bolt the bracket to was not easy. I ended up leaving two pieces of metal off of my bike seat, using a different bolt to attach the bracket. The missing metal pieces make my seat move around a bit. I had no problem attaching the bottom arms to the lower bike frame.

Tried a twirl around the driveway before putting my 2 year old in...new problem, the handlebar cut me in the back. So, I took that off.

New helmet and securely strapped into her seat, we went for a ride around the neighborhood. She's tall for a 2 year old, so her knees were bumping me in the butt. She didn't seem to mind and asked for more, but by the time I had assembled and drove around...I was exhausted.
