Bicycle seats for 8 year old?

Are there any bicycle seats for 8 year old kids? 60 lbs.

I kind of doubt you would find a seat that is made to handle that kind of weight. And it's a pretty niche market; many kids that age can do ten to twelve miles on a kids bike with gears.

However, I wouldn't be surprised to find that one of those third-wheel bike attachments could hold someone at age eight, and even ten. These devices attach to the seat post with some sort of gooseneck, and then have a wheel in the back, a seat, pedals, and fixed position handlebars. They're the closest thing to a tandom I've seen, without being a single frame.

When the child gets into early teens, a tandom may be practical.

How about these two items combined? I wonder if anyone has tried this set up:

There are several options

https://hollandbikeshop.com/en-gb/bi...-bicycle-seat/

https://hollandbikeshop.com/en-gb/bi...bbel-junior-6/

The Bobike junior doesn't require a rack. For the others, I would recommend something from an established brand like Tubus or Topeak and Racktime. I wouldn't trust that one from Amazon.
