Product Description

Product Description

The ultimate in child comfort and safety! All the features of the Kangaroo carrier, but with the added bonus of thick seat and back padding as well as a padded shoulder harness. Also exclusive to the LTD is the deluxe safety harness with oversized buckle system. You get the same improved passenger carrying position of our Center mount seat with more child interaction and safer weight distribution. But we've taken it to a sofa level! The Kangaroo LTD is not only the most plush carrier we make, it's the most comfortable bicycle child carrier made. Item ships with one mounting bar. For Customer Care at Kent call 1-866-462-4535.


The ultimate in child and comfort and safety, the WeeRide LTD Kangaroo child bike seat offers all the features of WeeRide's popular Kangaroo carrier--including a unique carrying position and adjustable foot cups--but ups the ante by adding ultra-thick padding on the seat and back and a padded shoulder harness. As a result, your child will be more secure and comfortable than ever while you ride across the countryside or to the grocery store. The LTD Kangaroo is an unusual child bike seat because it doesn't sit behind the bike saddle, as with most carriers, but in front of the rider. This puts your child in a safer position, where you can easily take note if he or she is upset.

The deluxe safety harness and oversized buckle system, meanwhile, will keep your child secure while giving him or her a much better view of the road and surrounding activities. Perhaps the subtlest yet most convenient feature, however, is the enhanced weight distribution, which keeps you from wavering while navigating corners or hitting bumps. The LTD Kangaroo bike seat--the plushest carrier that WeeRide makes--carries a two-year warranty.

Frequently Asked Questions
Q: What are the age and weight limits for passengers of the Kangaroo child carrier?
A: The recommended limit is 4 years old and 40 pounds.

Q: What is the minimum age for passengers?
A: The child should be able to support his or her own head with the added weight of a helmet, usually one years old. Please consult your pediatrician.

Q: What is the maximum height for passengers?
A: This is also dependent upon the height of the adult piloting the bicycle, obviously the rider needs to see over and reach around the passenger. A good way to judge the height of the passenger is to sit him or her on a bench and have the adult sit directly behind them. If the adult can see over and reach around the child, you should be fine on the bike.

Q: Will I have to alter my cycling position or pedal stroke when using the child carrier?
A: Yes, but the alteration is minimal. It's not a tremendous alteration of your cycling, but you will have to pedal with your knees slightly more apart than usual to avoid hitting the seat. For the short recreational trips you are taking with your child, this will be a very minor inconvenience in comparison to the quality time spent with them. If you are going for a long training ride you wouldn't want to subject your child to that, so the seat is easily removed for those rides.

Q: Will the child carrier fit my bike?
A: Wee Ride carriers will fit most bicycles: mountain, hybrid, cruiser, men's, or women's bikes. It will not fit to road bikes with drop style handlebars (rider is too hunched over) and downhill/freeride bikes (DH forks have legs that go up almost to the handlebars and the WeeRide mounting bar will restrict steering).

Q: What if I want to switch the carrier between two different bicycles?
A: An additional mounting bar is available separately. You can mount it to the other bike and switch the carrier at will.

Back in Spring we got him a WeeRide LTD seat. This fits between the handlebars and my seat. (There is also a non-LTD version with less padding. Both versions are sold with the mounting bar included; the separately sold bar is only for a family that wants a second one, to be able to quickly move the seat from one bicycle to another.)

It works great. But there are a large number of caveats.

First, it does not fit every bicycle. The Amazon reviews make clear that some people had to return it for this reason.

Second, I am 5'4" and it just barely fits comfortably. Anyone smaller than me would probably have problems. I did not have to change how I pedaled, or where my knees where.

Third, the 5mm hex key it comes with is so poorly machined it does not work. Anyone ordering the seat should also buy a hex key set if they do not already own one.

Fourth, my leg length allows me to normally stop the bicycle without hopping off the seat, simply pointing one foot tiptoe to rest while stopped. Anyone used to hopping off the seat when stopped would obviously have to change habits.

Fifth, my fitness level and bicycles number of gears allow me to bicycle up even the steeper hills I would ride on without standing. I never had the habit of standing while pedaling up a hill. I have not tried standing while Smiley is in his seat, but from the Amazon reviews apparently this does not work.

Sixth, the harness system is odd. Smiley can twist out of a shoulder strap, as he did in the above picture when smelling roses at the Owen Rose Garden. I assume this is intentional. If, heaven forbid, I was to crash then having the toddler firmly stuck in the seat is probably not the best option.

I did a lot of research trying to find a system that would work well for our family. I have a 30 pound almost-3-year-old daughter and a 20 pound 14 month old son. We have a bike trailer that was given to us but I am not comfortable pulling it because I can't SEE them, and because I have heard so much about the weight being a strain if you aren't an avid biker. It needs a few repairs and I wasn't keen on paying for them if i wasn't going to use it. I decided on a front mounted bike seat but was really nervous, because I haven't ridden a bike in several years. I had just purchased a brand new Nirve Cruiser for myself (it's GORGEOUS!) and I wanted something that would fit well, be secure, attractive, and able to be removed if necessary. The Wee Ride line fit the bill and was nicely reviewed. I was really on the fence because I didn't think I really NEEDED the LTD model (extra padding, etc) but I could NOT see putting a red and black model on my pretty new leopard print bike. So I sprung for the LTD model.

When the item arrived it was well packaged and I was so excited. Minimal Assembly was necessary (adding the headrest/handrest to the seat) and then I was able to install it on my bike. I installed it in the front yard while watching both kids. It wasn't terribly complicated, but the hardest part was installing it without causing any damage to my current paint job on the bike. I did get one knick near the headstock. I had to use the bolts for the oversize headstock, and it was difficult to get the brackets on as the cruiser has a VERY short headstock. At first I was really worried that it wasn't going to fit, but it was fine. The bracket is VERY secure. I almost had to remove the front basket to get the bracket on.

I had a difficult time trying to decide which thing to buy to take my 14month 26lb son for bike rides with me. All the reviews I found were from Lance Armstrong parents. I am not about that 50 mile a day bike ride life. My bike rides range between 15 minutes to an hour if I'm feeling crazy. This seat was the best choice for me I think because I like to be able to actually see what my kid is doing because if I turned all the way around to look at him I'd most likely run into a parked car. With him right in front of me, no worries. He was super excited to be seeing things in the front I think. He was comfortable because he fell asleep and rested his head on the front padded thing. My husband is an engineer and said it took him an hour to put it together on the bike. Once on you wouldn't want to take it off. Put it on as far as you can towards the front though. I had to have him move it up because I am knocked kneed so that made it harder to pedal but I got a killer thigh workout in. I would recommend this product to everyone.

If my 14 month old son could write a review of this, I'm sure he'd give it five stars! He loves going for bike rides with his Dad and seems very comfortable in the seat. He sits quite upright, which is good for absorbing bumps etc. It must be quite comfortable because he's fallen asleep on more than one occasion! I love that he's sat in front of me so we can talk he can point out the birds and squirrels that he sees!

So why did Dad only give it 3 stars? Well there are several reasons:

1) Mounting Bar Construction/Engineering

The mounting bar is crudely made and heavy. I've spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars shaving weight off my bike only to slap this thing on it.... hmm.

Also it takes a long time to add/remove the bar. A socket set helps, but it's still a pain. I would gladly pay more for a bar that included a quick release mechanism. I leave it on for commuting to work but remove it for serious riding.

Tip: You can save a bit of time here by removing your seat post and seat post clamp, then sliding the bar off without undoing it all the way.

2) Seat attachment concerns

The seat attaches to the bar with a single bolt, that you tighten up by hand. The bolt goes though a slit in the base of the child seat and a washer spreads the load on the plastic as you tighten it down. To me this doesn't seem like enough security. The plastic at this part of the seat is quite thick and I have no evidence of the system failing, but none-the-less I think there should be a second point of attachment, at the rear of the seat for example.

3) Overal seat construction

I suppose that using very thin plastic reduces the weight of the seat but it does seem cheap.
