2012 iBert safe-T-seatPrice: $109.95
Made in the U.S.A. by iBert, Inc.
This U.S. made child biking seat is the product of 6 years of R&D from parents disappointed with the family seating options available for bikers. Looking for a solution to their little passenger's visibility, their own biking balance and safety concerns, the mom and dad team created the i-Bert safe-T-seat. The design is similar in construction to rear-mounted seats, but uses a patented "stinger" system which attaches to your bike in just two minutes. The seat can then be attached to the stinger in 15 seconds. And taking off the seat is just as quick. The New 2012 Model is 2 inches longer than the original design and includes a new padded steering wheel (which doubles as a nap pad), so now your co-pilot can help with the steering (wink wink). All 2012 models include seat with pad, steering wheel, T-bar, ring pin & clip, and hex key for easy installation.
The safe-T-seat is the most adaptable child carrier on the market today. It fits more bikes than any other front-mounted seat. The design is intended to improve parent-child interaction and provide a better view for your child. Enjoy easier and safer loading and unloading of your child and a better center of gravity for you.
Select original Green or NEW Pink. With the 2012 model, color options are now UV protected.
The 2012 iBert safe-T-seat provides families exactly what they are looking for: Comfort, safety, attractive design and a good position where the child can fully explore the scenery. Nestled safely between your arms and behind the protection of the bicycle handle bars, the child can look around and get involved with the ride by turning the padded steering wheel with mom or dad.
The safe-T-seat is the most adaptable child carrier on the market today. It fits more bikes than any other front mounted seat. A minimum of 0.75" is needed on the handle bar stem to accommodate the stinger assembly. The safe-T-seat is designed to meet all 1625-00 standards, which it does. But ASTM 1625-00 is written for rear child carriers so front mounted seats do not apply at this time. One of the goals at iBert Inc. is to petition and work with the ASTM to create a new ASTM standard for all front mounted seats that is above ASTM 1625-00.
Available in original Green or NEW Pink.
The safe-T-seat includes a seat pad, steering wheel, T-bar, ring pin & clip, and hex key. Designed for children ages 12 months to 4 years — with a maximum height of 44" and a maximum recommended weight of 38 lbs. The child must to be able to sit up well and hold the weight of a helmet on his/her head. Not following these guidelines can affect the maneuverability of your bike.
Dimensions: 26" X 14" X 9"; A minimum of 0.75" is needed on the handle bar stem to accommodate the stinger assembly.
We BOTH love it!

This is a great seat for both, me and my 2year old. She loves to turn the wheel and show my all the things she sees so much better now. Installation is easy. It makes is a little harder to get on and off the bike, but it is just a matter of getting used to it. The seat does not interfere in riding the bike or turning the wheel. It gets great reviews just by people looking at it. My daughter is rather tall, but I think I get at least another year out of it. I recommend crossing the seatbelt over the shoulder, it kept falling off the shoulder otherwise. Totally recommend it ....
Great Safe Childs Seat

We recently visited Mackinac Island, Michigan where no cars are allowed, We biked all over with our granddaughter and great-granddaughter after purchasing your product and it was very popular with the children and us. A great product made in America.
We LOVE the iBert

My 2 year old son LOVES this bike seat! The seat only fits on my bike, not my husbands, we knew that when we were looking into getting it. It is really easy to install and even easier to use! My bike fits on the bike rack on the car without having to remove the iBert and we can hang it up in the garage without having to remove the seat! My favorite part is getting to chat with my son while we are riding around! Makes for a very fun experience for everyone!
Not bad, but not perfect for my bike...
By: David R., Designer (Philadelphia)
It's a great idea, and I can adjust my bike to make it possible, but it's not optimal for my bike and riding style. I'm about 5' 11", and ride a Marin urban-style bike. Pretty upright style with handle bars that slope back. So, I'm pretty straight up and down. And I normally like to ride with my seat up high, so my knees are pretty straight on the extended part of my peddling. The only way I could really make this work, was to lower my seat, so when we start and stop, I could hold the bike up while remaining seated. These means my peddling is pretty bent throughout the cycle, and I never really can straighten my legs. Usually, with my seat up high, I have to get off the seat and be down near the cross beam to get my legs down low enough to stand with the bike up when stopped. And with the baby seat in the way, and the seat up high, there is no way for me to get down when stopped. I think we're thinking this is still going to be ok for easy weekend bike rides through the park and such, but for the weekly commute (here's hoping I can get back to bike commuting) we're thinking we'll get a rear seat. (yuck) but oh well. We tried. Thanks for offering this product at a good price and easy delivery.
We love the iBert Safe-T-Seat

We bought this for my 16 months old daughter and at first she was scared to go on the seat but after her first ride she fell in love with it and always wants to go on a bike ride now. It looks very comfortable for her and she really enjoys the ride in the front seat. We'd definitely recommend this item.
ibert makes ihappy

My partner found this innovative product for our son, who just turned one. It has been easy to install and with the helpful videos, we are extremely excited for warm weather to put it to good use. All that's left is to find a suitable helmet and we're ready to get in gear!
