I feel bad for the kid in the back with that backpack in his face.

@David... yeah you shouldn't wear a backpack if there's a kid on the back.

A great website with interesting and unique material what else would you need.

I would be interested to find out what he used to attach the seat to the metal plates

David

@ ray,

I think he's really onto something with that design. It looks like he sawed off a standard seatpost and drilled two holes through it.

I like the way he dealt with the tilt moment by bracketing the downtube... there is no way the seat will twist or tilt in any direction. Then putting in the footpegs. I would have liked to have a more rounded finish to the lower end, but that is just because I pickup my bike and move it around sometimes.

The only 'issue' with it is that it will only fit that frame, it really isn't adjustable. And if you made it adjustable, it would not be as strong.

I'm going to make one this spring, but it'll fit my cyclocross bike... and put the child a little closer to the handlebars and attach the seat lower to the top tube (so I won't need to use a seatpost and because my bike's geometry is different). Should only take a little aluminum sheet, a cruizer bike seat, some recycled highway pegs, and some fasteners :)
