Absolutely!! Click here to learn more about the safety testing and certification of the Kangaroo child carriers.
The recommended limits are 4 years old and 40lbs.
We recommend the child to be able to support his or her own head with the added weight of a helmet, usually 1 year old. Please consult your pediatrician beforehand.
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 them 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.
Yes, but the alteration is minimal. Your very valuable parcel is in an area that dictates this. 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.
Our carriers will fit most bicycles – mountain, hybrid, cruiser, men’s or ladies. Ones that the carrier will not fit are road bikes with drop style handlebars (rider is too hunched over), Downhill/Freeride bikes (DH forks have legs that go up almost to the handlebars and the WeeRide mounting bar will restrict steering), and bicycles that have a "forward pedal" or "flat foot" style frame (these frames are extremely long and not only will the mounting bar not fit, the carrier will be in the way of the pedal rotation). If you are still unsure, email us a picture of your bicycle - we can usually tell by looking at the photo
No problem – the mounting bar is available separately. You can mount it to the other bike and switch the carrier at will.
Children come in all shapes and sizes and we've done our best to offer a harness system sized for most kids. On the rare occasion that your harness is ill-fit for your child, please contact us and we'll send along a suitable replacement harness.
While you physically COULD do this, we would recommend against it. Besides the weight of you and your bicycle, you would now have an additional 50 to 100lbs of treasured, but squirmy passengers to contend with. This would make riding very difficult. Instead we would recommend something like the Stagecoach or Convertible Coach trailers to haul your precious cargo.
The carrier will likely work with a fullsize folding bicycle frame depending on where the hinge joint is. But it will not work well with the smaller, compact 20" or smaller wheel folding bikes. The frames on those are usually very low and the Kangaroo/LTD will likely be in the way of the pedals
Yes, absolutely! Always! It's not only safer for your child, it teaches them to wear a helmet whenever they do something cycling related. And you should too - lead by example!
No, not at all. The seat back is designed to be low rise style. A taller seat back would only dig into the chest of the adult rider. The Kangaroo seat back should be a little bit above the waist of the child, this will keep him or her securely in place.
The Kangaroo seat adds about 7lbs to the weight of your bicycle.
The LTD has a more deluxe and plush padding system on the seat and pedestal, as well as padded strap covers. The size of the seat and the mounting bar are the same for both models.
No worries - the hitch is available separately. You can mount one to each bicycle and then switch between them by just using the quick release. Just give us a call at (800)451-5368
No, please don't. The CoPilot and ProPilot are designed for the size and strength of a child, not an adult. It is not an attachment to turn a bicycle into a tandem, it is a learning tool for a child.
Again, please don't. This is very ungainly and also unsafe. It will be very hard to start out as well as stop, and turns will be especially challenging. One at a time, please!
The CoPilot frame is made of steel, while the ProPilot is made of lighter weight aluminum.
Be reasonable folks! The carrier is recommended for up to 14lbs. Usually that involves small dogs or cats. Maybe a ferret. Or a small iguana. Please don't put children in there! Especially with iguanas, they're biters.
Yes, you can easily remove the carrier from the bike and use it as a nifty pet shuttle. It also functions as a cozy basket for groceries or automotive parts when your beloved pet is at home.
No, that sort of defeats the purpose. The Learn To Ride teaches a child basic balance in an easily controlled vehicle. Leaning is a good part of any two wheel operation and this is where the Learn To Ride excels!
Yes and no. A scooter does teach the young rider about leaning, but it is learned in a standing position. This doesn't really translate to riding a bicycle.
