biking with baby

Thank you to my good friend Bobbie for taking this photo of C. and I at the park last week. It captures a moment of pure happiness for me: with my daughter, after a picnic in the park with friends, ready to bike home.

I have now used the iBert enough that I feel comfortable writing a review for those interested in trying a front of the bike seat. Stay tuned for something later this week!

If you have specific questions you’d like me to address regarding using the bike seat, leave them in the comments section below!

    Does it make it more difficult to steer? Also, is it easy to install and remove easily?

    We recently purchased an iBert for our daughter. Both my husband and I tried it on our bikes (Trek hybrids). Neither of us felt like we had enough room to get off of the bike safely with K in the seat. It doesn’t look like you have much more room than we did. How do you manage getting off of the bike without running into the back of the seat or losing your balance?

      Leslie, I know what you mean. I basically “solved” this by lowering my seat enough to where I can hop off and hover over my seat, rather than needing to be in front of it. It’s not the best fit, I’d like my seat a little higher, but I also don’t mind it terribly. It does work out a whole new set of leg muscles when pedaling!

      With the seat adjusted this way, I feel comfortable that I can stop quickly and get off the bike while maintaining balance with no problems.

      My husband did the same thing when we rode with the iBert on his Trek Soho. It seemed like he had a little more room that I do with my mountain bike but also not quite enough, so he also lowered his seat to be able to put his feet down for a stop while hovering over the seat still.

      I hope that makes sense. Maybe it’s a solution you could try? I like the iBert enough that it’s worth the inconvenience of a lower seat to me.
