Thule's RideAlong is an easy-to-use rear child bike seat that's loaded with smart, intuitive features. Your child will love going on rides thanks to the DualBeam suspension system that absorbs road shock for a comfortable adventure. An adjustable padded harness with child-proof safety buckle provides maximum child comfort with custom fit. And, the detachable, water-repellent padding is machine washable and reversible. Features like the one-hand tilt function and single-hand adjustable foot straps and foot rests allow for convenience and flexibility as a child grows. Parents will love the universal locking quick release bracket that allows the seat to mount/dismount from bike in seconds and is compatible with most bike frames. The RideAlong is designed and tested for children from 9 months to 6 years old, up to 48.5 pounds.
I use this seat to commute with my son every day. He and I both like it very much. It feels well balanced and very secure. He's tall for his age but he fits well and loves the ride. Our trips are pretty short but he is comfortable the entire time.
Installation was very easy, and the quick release bracket is handy for taking the seat off if I'm going for a ride by myself. The empty seat is useful if you are grabbing a bag of groceries or two as well.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend
