Benefits of Mac Ride as a front mounted seat

  • Your child can experience the journey - the view and the wind on the cheeks. 
  • Communication can take place between you and your child.    
  • As you hold on to your handlebars, you wrap your arms around your child. The protective arms send a message of comfort to the child and define the boundary of the riding team.

 

Riding Off Road With Mac Ride

Mac Ride’s unique design includes an unobtrusive saddle and strong stirrups.  Mac Ride does not use a cumbersome mould, shoulder straps or harnesses because a child strapped to a moulded seat absorbs the shakes and rattles of a moving bike. 

Only with Mac Ride can your child stand up on the stirrups, sharing the handlebars with you to help guide toward the right path or the line off an upcoming curb.  Your child learns to absorb the bumps in the path by bending legs and arms, just as you do.

Mac Ride Product Details

The main Mac Ride tubes are from stock aluminum for strength and lightweight. They have a telescoping action which it allows the seat to easily shrink or stretch to different sizes of bike.

The stirrups have angle adjust and length adjust to allow for different child sizes, to grow with your child, and to make sure your child's feet are out of the way of any moving parts. Angle adjust is made using one allen key bolt and length adjust is by spring button. The stirrup feet have rubber straps to secure the child's feet. These are strong enough to hold them in place over bumpy terrain but elastic enough to release in the event of an accident.

The seat has a similar design to a horse’s saddle. This is comfortable, and self leveling, since the seat may go on many different bikes at many different angles.  Your child will always rest in the lowest part of the scoop which also means they do not need to use arm strength to keep themselves in place whilst climbing or descending as adults do.

The rear clamp attaches to the seat post and has a 3 point mount which can enlarge or shrink depending on the size of the seat tube. A quick release ensures a fast and easy install or removal.

The front mount requires a modified headset spacer pre-installed on your adult bike. This headset spacer is a permanent installation for as long as you would like to have the freedom of using Mac Ride. Several spacers can be installed on many different bikes to allow for multiple different riders for each seat. The headset spacer fits the standard threadless 1 ⅛” steerer tube, however there is a non standard 1 ¼” spacer soon to be available for the Giant Overdrive 2 steerer tube. The front clamp can fit around this headset spacer and is secured by a captive allen bolt. Once the allen key bolted is fully tightened the clamp has enough tolerance to allow the spacer to turn inside the clamp, thus allowing you to steer with little or no resistance.

The front and rear clamps of Mac Ride attach to 2 areas of the bike on which their is mostly vertical loading. Mac Ride is designed in such a way as to load the bike along these same axes.

Mac Ride components are manufactured, assembled, and packaged in Asia. Shipping is from Asia too.
