The iBert safe-T-seat was designed with quality and safety first. The safe-T-seat places the child up front, safely between the parent's protective arms. This evenly distributes weight over the bike giving a stable, safe ride. Kids enjoy the close interaction and the unobstructed view of the fun ahead. Mounted conveniently on the handlebar stem; the high, forward position allows you to pedal in comfort without banging your knees on the seat.
Created by parents who were disappointed with the family bicycling options available, the iBert Safe-T Front Mounted Child Bicycle seat was made to offer families the best biking experience possible in safety and comfort. This front mounted seat offers both parent and child excellent range of vision, with the opportunity to interact as they bike together. Noted for its ease of use, the seat takes just a few minutes to install and remove, and it is equally easy and safe to load and unload the child from the seat. Providing plenty of clearance for the knees so that the adult can bike with ease, the seat is positioned so that it is easy to maintain the center of gravity. This adaptable seat fits any adult bike with a minimum of 3/4 inches of clearance on the handlebar stem.
The iBert Safe-T seat was developed after its creators became frustrated with the available bike seat options for children. They found that bike trailers kept their kids uncomfortably far away from them, got too hot in the sun, and only provided a limited view out to the children. The rear-mounted seats presented similar problems. The kids had a limited view and it was difficult to interact with them. Additionally, the balance of the bike was off and it was not easy to load and unload the kids. Other front mounted seats were complicated to hook onto the bike and difficult to remove. These seats also did not allow knee clearance for biking, and as a result were not comfortable.
The iBert Safe-T seat offers a variety of safety and comfort advantages compared to other child bike seat options. The iBert Safe-T seat allows you to maintain control of the bike when loading and unloading your child. To load and unload the child, you simply straddle the bike and lift the child into or out of the seat. When using the iBert seat you can always see what your child is doing and you can make sure that your child is safe and comfortable at all times. The center of gravity in the iBert seat is closer to the center of the bike making it easier to control the bike as you ride. The seat sits higher on the bike and is smooth on the bottom so that even tall riders rarely brush the bottom of the seat with their knees and if they do they just glide along the smooth edges on the bottom.
The iBert Safe-T seat is easy to install. The patented stinger assembly attaches to any bike with a minimum of 3/4 inches on the handle bar stem. The stinger system attaches to the bike in just two minutes and the seat can then be attached and detached from the stinger in 15 seconds. If you buy additional stinger assemblies the seat can be attached to multiple bikes.
The iBert Safe-T seat is made in the U.S.A. with safety and quality as the main objectives. While the iBert Safe-T seat is designed to meet all 1625-00 standards, at this time ASTM 1625-00 is written for rear child carriers not front mounted seats.

The concept, build/construction, and installment is great. I knew instantly we made the right choice in getting a front mounted seat vs rear seat. My son is 16 months old, and literally for 2 minutes straight on our first outting, he was going "WOOOAAHHHHH!!! WOOOAAAHHHHHH!! WOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH!! WOOAAAA(etc. etc.)".
Installation is a breeze. Construction looks and feels very durable. It's a very simple design, and simple is good. Less to go wrong and break. It feels very stable, and balances the bike fairly well, as I imagine rear seats tend to load the rear too much.
The bad... This seat will vary in comfort for your child 100% dependent on the geometry of your bike. The angle at which the seat rests is completely dictated by the angle of your bikes head tube (this is the little tube up front that the fork sticks out of at the bottom, and your handlebars at the top). My wife and I ride cruiser/mountain bike hybrids, so the tube slopes more then a commuter or hybrid bike. As a result, this seat leans back a bit, forcing our son to hold his back, neck, and head up in a vertical position. Luckily, my seating position forces me to lean forward a bit, so his head ends up resting slightly on my chest, which alleviates his effort a bit. Ultimately, the angle isn't completely unreasonable, and my wife and I decided he should be fine, although we don't know how he'll hold up in 2+ hr rides.
It would have been nice if the seat allowed angle adjustment, so the seat angle is not dictated by the head tube angle. I imagine people with more casual beach cruisers have kids that are leaning considerably farther back then ours.
Ultimately, if you have a road hybrid commuter bike, you should see no problems. Those mounting on cruisers or other casual type of bikes should determine how much they're willing to force their kid to hold their neck up during a ride.
- Great option for babies to give them a forward view of the action
- Has a lot of "wiggle"...it mounts on a metal post and the post has play, which allows the chair to rock back and forth considerably - to the point where I'm thinking of mickey mousing something to stabilize it. Would be nice if there was some kind of design like the quick release on a bike tire that you could pull a lever and it would actually be tight.
- Can be in the way of your legs or arms depending on the bike style...just goes with the territory. Works better on a cruiser style bike than mountain bike.
- Straps are mounted too wide in back, therefore they tend to slide off the baby's shoulders unless you tighten it uncomfortably tight on the baby's shoulders. We ended up loosening the straps to their maximum length and creating an "X" harness which is much more secure and is still loose on the baby.
- Baby's feet can get stuck under the handlebars when going in or out of the seat (again depending on bike style)
- No head support and baby tends to fall asleep in this, similar to a car. Meaning his head usually flops around and sometimes he wakes up really pissed off that his head is not all cozy like in his car seat. Would be cool to have an optional padded head rest.
- Wish they had more color options...
-- It's front-mounted, which means your child will be able to see everything, as well as YOU being able to see and check on them, and actually talk to them and hear them. We find this to be a HUGE plus. If he was on the back of the bike, we'd be turning around a lot, and that is just not safe.
-- Also the fact that it's front-mounted means they're closer to your center of gravity on the bike, which makes not only for an easier ride for you, but a safer one.
-- They're closer to you, making for a more fun and more connected ride. You get to experience things along with your child, rather than asking after you both get off the bike, "Did you see that duck fly by?"
-- Very, very, very, very -- did I mention VERY? -- easy to install!
-- Really easy to move from one bike to another. Like ridiculously easy.
-- Quite lightweight!
-- GREAT price, in comparison to the other bike seats that came anywhere near the safety and use recommendations that I was comfortable with.
Two things I was concerned about before purchasing:
-- The weight limit. It's lower than other bike seats, at 38 pounds. Well, I decided to just get the darn thing and see how it goes. The good news is at 2 years of age, my son is only 28 pounds. We have at least a couple, if not a few, more years of riding with this thing. At that point we will re-assess -- and will have gotten a ton of great usage out of this thing, and he will likely be ready for a different mode of bike transport anyway.
-- That little steering wheel that is optional. I totally thought I wanted one. I didn't buy it, thinking we'd wait and see how it went with just the seat. Well, lo and behold, what they don't tell you (and they SHOULD) is that this seller includes the steering wheel! Woohoo! Making the overall cost even better.
In short: get this seat. You and your child will love it.
