Buddyrider Bike Pet Seat
☆ Free Delivery within the Continental USA ☆
The Buddyrider® Bicycle Pet Seat is a fun way to safely take your dog along with you on a bike ride. Unlike other bicycle dog carriers on the market such as the more traditional front mounted bike basket for dogs, and any rear mounted dog seat, Buddyrider® is mounted over the center of the bike so the extra weight has virtually no effect on handling. For larger breeds the dog trailer is ideal, but for smaller dogs weighing up to 25 pounds there is no better alternative than the Buddyrider® . Now they can enjoy cycling with you on their very own bicycle dog seat.
If comfort and safety are priorities for you and your best friend then there is no better alternative than the Buddyrider® pet seat. Your dog sits in a comfortable position safely strapped in making the experience very enjoyable for both of you. The unique design has been engineered to fit almost any modern adult bicycle, with a measurement of at least 48cm (19") between the seat post and the handlebar stem. Center mounted seats for children, and in this case for pets, have proven to be far superior to those mounted behind the bicycle seat and also those mounted on the handlebars. It gives the rider much better control because of where the extra weight is positioned over the center of the bicycle. Being able to see them at all times is a bonus.
Will The Buddyrider Fit My Bike?
Below is a step by step way to help determine if the Buddyrider will fit your bike.
First of all there are 3 important points to note:
1. A traditional ladies bike with the lower frame in front of the seat allows you to mount the bike by stepping through and then sitting. This can no longer be accomplished with the Buddyrider mounted there. You must mount and dismount the bike gentleman style straight over the seat from the side.
2. If your bike has a suspension seat post, this must be replaced with a rigid seat post so that the Buddyrider is mounted high enough both for fit, and your comfort. They are available at most bike stores.
3. If you have a carbon fiber seat post you must replace it with an alumimum or steel seat post.
Adjust and set your seat height in a safe and comfortable position, low enough so both feet can touch the ground when stopped.
Measure the exposed seat post below your seat.
Is it between 1” and 1 ¼” diameter? (2.54cm and 3.17cm)
Is there at least 1 ¾” (4.5cm) of seat post showing to attach the Buddyrider?
Next, measure at right angles from the seat post.
Do you have at least 19” (48.5 cm) of clearance?
If you answered "yes" to all of the above questions it is very likely that Buddyrider will fit your bike.
Some exceptions may apply.
