Product Description

Product Description

The iBert safe-T-seat is a front mounted child seat that has many benefits over the alternatives. It allows you to have more interaction with your child while riding; the child has a better view; your bike will have better center of gravity; and it is easier and safer to load your child into a front mounted vs. a rear mounted seat. The iBert is designed so you can pedal your bike without hitting your knees on the seat and is easy and fast to install. The safe-T-seat is designed for children 4 and under. The minimum age is 12 months since the child needs to be able to sit up well and hold the weight of a helmet. The maximum height of the child using the iBert seat is 42 inches. Kids taller than that will be uncomfortable. The max weight for the seat is 38lbs. Installation takes minutes. You will need at least 3/4 inch of usable stem in order to attach the seat.

Amazon.com

The iBert safe-T-seat was designed on the premise that all child bike carriers are not created equal.


The safe-T-seat lets you interact with your child while riding.
Equipped with a three-point harness and lap bar, the safe-T-seat puts your child at the front of the bike, where she is safe, comfortable, and entertained. The front-mounted location is more fun than a bike trailer, which limits your child's view while putting her in the path of rocks, dirt, and other annoyances. It's also more gratifying than rear-mounted seats, as it lets you interact more with your child while providing a better center of gravity. And unlike many traditional front-mounted seats, the safe-T-seat sits high enough to stay clear of your knees while pedaling, installs easier, and sports more safety features.

Designed for children four and under, the safe-T-seat features iBert's patented stinger assembly system, which attaches and removes easily from almost any bike. The stinger system sits higher than other seats and is smooth on the bottom. Even if you're extra tall and hit your knees on the bottom of the seat, they'll just glide along the seat's smooth bottom edges. The safe-T-seat is safe for children up to 38 pounds and 42 inches tall. Kids taller than 42 inches will be uncomfortable. Parents will need at least 3/4 inch of usable stem to attach the seat.

Note: my full review includes los of pictures and it can be found at my blog.

I love products that are well designed, functional, and multipurpose. My smartphone is probably the best example of this: phone, GPS, camera, music player, plus a layer of apps on top for even more consolidation and convenience.

Well, the iBert Safe-T-Seat may not be the same caliber of Swiss army knife as the modern smartphone, but by doing one thing really well, it makes my bicycle far more useful and multifunctional.

***Background

I've been using the iBert Safe-T front-mounted bicycle child seat since January of this year, and I'm certain Lucy and I have logged hundreds of miles together in that time. I track my miles like I track calories and carbs -- I don't.

What I really love about it, is that it allows me to spend time with Lucy while also spending some of my own excess energy. Since she sits so close to me, we chit-chat the entire time we're out riding together. Unlike rear-mounted child seats or pull-behind child-carrier style trailers, we are very much together on our rides -- and I'm sure she enjoys her view and her level of engagement quite a bit more than staring at her dad's back.

With the baby able to join us so easily, the iBert has helped make it possible for Amy and me to spend fitness time together, too. We've even committed to using our bikes for transportation (when reasonably possible) on those rare occasions when we eat out. Without any hesitation whatsoever, I can say that Jerk Chicken at the local gluten-free Caribbean restaurant tastes far better when you've biked your way there. Riding several miles on an empty stomach is a magical seasoning that goes great with all meals.

First off...let me start out by saying that the 1 and 2 star reviews are ridiculous. Anyone that knows anything about the implementation of tools and metals knows this is a quality product on inspection after delivery. I laughed when I read that the iBert 'bar' bent. It just so happens to be cast and milled aluminum which wouldn't bend if 200+ lbs of myself were hanging on it. If this seat were lose as others had stated then the installation process was done wrong and whomever installed it should be banned from tools as well as trusted to ride a bicycle with an infant. That being said...
This product was very well engineered and serves it purpose exceedingly well. I've had a few 'carriers' and I enjoyed this one the most with my son Cash. He was thrilled to have all the scenery in front of him as well as the comfort of the seat design and being inbetween my arms. He always felt protected and secure. It allowed conversation and engagement to the sights afforded by the unobstructed view. As he grew (over one hundred percentile since the age of 18 months) I was forced to remove the cross bar to allow for his larger size. He still loved it till the day I removed it as did I.

As for the misgivings????

Color...LOL. HORRENDOUS GREEN
I'm a single full time dad and enjoy my bike I've spent a large sum of money on to be personalized and cool. The color of this thing can make anything ugly. I understand that they make an Orange now...yippee. Why not Charcoal Grey?

Structurally speaking its sound and I trusted the most valuable thing in the world to me to ride in it....BUT I would change one thing. I'd reengineer the legs portion to come 'over' the bar to accommodate gargantuan children as my own. Lol. It was fine though...

I was hesitant at first to buy this bike seat for my son, but after getting it and going on just one ride, I felt comfortable and my 1-year old loved it! It feels safer to me than one in the back of my bike because I can see what he is doing and I have him in between my arms. Plus I can talk to him as we ride. We definitely recommend it. The one negative is that it doesn't fit really well on my mountain bike. I think it fits better on a cruiser or hybrid bike.

This is just what I wanted! It is a perfect match for my beach cruiser. My son had a blast taking his first bike ride. The seat was easy to install, it fits great on my bike and was not obtrusive to ride with. Buy it!

I really loved this bike seat at first. It was a bit wobbly, which freaked me out. But I read on their site (or maybe here in the reviews?) that was normal. Ohhhhkayyyy. My daughter LOOOOOOOOVED riding in it, and she fit well into it. She's 31 pounds at the most.

Then the pin that holds the seat on warped, became mangled, and ultimately broke. ONE pin holds the seat on. One very flimsy pin. That freaked us out, but we went out and bought a new pin anyway.

Then we noticed the main bar that holds up the seat was warping and bending down. Like the weight of our 31-pound toddler was too much for it. This happened on our last bike ride, and the way we discovered it was that my husband was no longer able to turn his bike because the iBert bar hit against his bike frame. This happened a couple of miles from our house, and on a somewhat busy street, and it was fairly terrifying for him. That did it for us, we got rid of it.

We used it MAYbe 10 times total (I'm over-estimating here). So, really not that many times. It also scratched up my husband's bike frame pretty badly.

I do not recommend this product. It's a cute bike seat, but WAY too flimsy. Not well made, and possibly dangerous to use.

(OUCH! Just looked and saw we paid $92 for it. Please look elsewhere for another seat. It's not worth it.)
