We have a Torek seat for out guy and he's on the small side for a three year old, but he's at the limits of the seat. One trouble that I found was that the foot straps are so impossibly long that he could take his feet out and dangle them of kick me with them! These two things did in fact, get in the way with my peddling! I got about two year's use out of the seat but he's pretty much confined to the trailer now. He's always liked it more than the seat.
As others have said, you should practice with weight in the seat for a while. It's a different feeling for sure!
