My son rode the iBert on other bikes for maybe 8 months til he outgrew it- I think from like age 2ish to 3? Which was fine because when he turned 3 he was pedaling on his own without training wheels- but I really liked the time we spent on the iBert, so I made sure I didn't start my daughter on it too late.
Today, since it was a balmy 45 degrees F, we decided to mount the iBert to the BD and go for a ride. She is 18 months old, I wasn't sure if she would like it or not, but after about 15 seconds, she went "weeeeee!" and then I knew we were cool.
She actually got super bummed when we dismounted to go into a grocery store.
Overall, with one in front and one behind, it was ok, except for mounting/dismounting. I forgot until I was underway that on my Long Haul Trucker, I used a setback seatpost, and Nitto Albatross bars with the iBert, which was a lot easier. At the very least, I should put some Open Bars or something on the BD if I want to continue using the iBert. She needs a properly fitting helmet too, I know!
Although... I might just be better off moving the Yepp to the back of the bike, and getting my son a cushion/handlebar to hold onto.
But the iBert is so fun though... hmm.
Anyways, a nice reprieve from the cold weather!
