Bought this for my three year old who already loves his balance bike and he could not be happier with riding my bike too! Surprised to find that it feels totally natural to ride with the little one up front and can’t wait for more family adventures. Quality is exceptional and it couldn’t be easier to fit. I’d highly recommend getting the grips for the little one. Absolutely delighted with my purchase!
Our 2 1/2 year old absolutely loves her macride. It's a high quality piece of equipment. I was also surprised how secure she is on the set up. We were hesitant to purchase the macride because of the price, but it has been worth every penny. I wish we had bought it earlier! We really enjoy being able to ride together.
A couple of months back purchased a macride for my 2 year old son as he used to watch daddy set off for a days riding without being able to go along. I read tge reviews and decided to reach in the pocket and purchase the seat that was best on test, and im so glad i did. The build quality and comfort is brilliant. The seat is grippy even in rain, its shape is comfy for my lad, he know enjoys the speed of the slopes on my xc or freeride bike as they sent a spare stem collar. I can't rave about the product enough to friends and frequently get asked where i had it from. If you're 50/50, take the plunge and you wont regret it.
It's awesome to be able to take our almost 2-year old daughter into the local woods and see (and hear: "yeah, well done mommy!" :)) her enjoy the MacRide.
Installation was super easy. And even with a 7-month pregnant belly, there is plenty of room left on my small-sized frame.
The only thing I don't love about mountain biking is that it takes me away from my family. MacRide fixes that. It's perfect for getting little ones out on the mountain before they're ready to do it on their own.
Installation was easy on my 2019 Transition Smuggler. The legs of the MacRide just barely come into contact with the carbon frame, so I added two pieces of helicopter tape to protect it from scratches. After the initial installation, it literally takes less than 2-minutes to put on, or take off the MacRide.
Riding is a blast, and I can't begin to express the joy of having a two year old with you who says "Faster Daddy!" on the climbs, "Good Climb" when we get to the top, and "Whee!!" as soon as we're going down.
I fitted the second adapter on my road bike, and while there are plenty of other solutions for getting little ones on road bikes, the MacRide works well there too.
