Choosing baby velorzreslo
Fans of bicycle walks and happy owners of small children in the family will benefit from the information in this article. When you learn about the child's seat for a bicycle and how to pick it correctly, you no longer have to put off cycling because there is no one to leave the baby with. Let's figure it out.
What is baby velorzelo
In fact, the choice of such seats for young lovers of "walks with pedals" is very large. Starting from old variations of the seats, resembling those that were on the iron horses of our grandfathers and grandmothers, and ending with almost car seats, with many different useful functions. But there is one thing but! You can use the baby's bicycle seat for a child who has already learned to sit well, and until the child gets 22 kg (about 7 years). As a rule, at this age the child is already buying his own bicycle.
Baby velorzresla are "front" and "rear", and you can also find bicycle trailers, similar to a small carriage for a baby.
Children's bicycle seat "front"
The chair is attached to the frame tube or to the steering column of the bicycle. When buying such a copy, check whether the chair will be attached to your bike. Because the diameters of the frame, the location of the braking and high-speed cables may not correspond to the fastening. The "front" chair is very convenient because the child is always in sight. You can talk to him, give him a drink or a snack, without stopping. Yes, and the baby will feel better, watching the road and the environment right in front of him. However, such armchairs can withstand no more than 15 kg. Yes, and the child sitting in front, will interfere with you, and distract attention. Curiosity will force him to click on the brakes, switch gears, pull your hands and steer yourself. In addition, such an armchair will cause wide spreading of legs and raise hands while riding, and this prevents maneuvers. Yes, and with the fall the baby will get injured much more than if he were sitting behind.
Children's bicycle seat "back"
This option is attached to the trunk or to the seat tube. Attached to the boot, the chair is considered more reliable, but for the baby it will be too tough, especially on uneven roads. However, there is a way out: the armchair is supplied with shock absorbers. It can be picked up with a combined mount. Those. initially it is attached to the seat tube, and when the baby is gaining weight, the child seat with additional fasteners is put on the trunk.
The "rear" option is considered safer for the child and for the cyclist. Firstly, the kid and the armchair do not interfere with the control, except that the driving style will change a little because of the additional load from behind. Secondly, the wind does not blow into the baby's face and does not contribute to the appearance of a cold. Thirdly, the baby himself will feel safe behind your back. The downside is that controlling the rear behavior of the baby is quite difficult, and the child himself does not see the road. In this situation, a rear-view mirror is attached or someone goes behind and watches the baby.
We wish you to make the right choice, and successful bike trips!
