    Adams Trail-A-Bike seat for 3 year old

    I have a very small 3 year old. 25lbs and fits into 2t clothing. We bought a tail-a-bike and Im wondering if we should purchase the Adams backrest or baby seat?

    What is your recommendation? Any personal experience with these seat attachments?

    Thanks!

    I bought one and took our 3 year old out the first time today, the belt kept her from sliding off the seat when she got tired.

    Thanks that photo gives me a better idea of the back rest than the website pic. I think that should work for us. I can't wait to try it out.

    You might want to look in the compact version too. My 3 year old wears a 3T and can just barely reach the peddles on the compact version (and we cut 2 inches off the seat post to make it even shorter!). I think the seat is a cool idea, but you have to raise the seat post, to attach the seat back. So we found that it made our problem worse. Another option is peddle blocks, but we haven't found peddle blocks to work well for ours. Seems like those suckers slip and slide and we have broken several pairs.

    You may just want to wait until the child is big enough.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Three year old is big enough to ride, just not for very long. Mine got tired after a mile and started to slide off. She wanted to ride like big brother so thats why I did the tandem so we can still have the seat on my wife's bike and she can move back there when she wants.
