Bobike Handlebar with Cushion Bobike Handlebar / Sleeproll mounted on a Mini+ seat

PDF icon Mini Handlebar Fitting Instructions (1,534Kb, includes English)

Younger children's heads seem to flop to the side when they fall asleep (examples: #1, #2, #3) in which case it will (I believe) be safest to cradle them, to push the bike, or to stop completely. Older children seem to be able to sleep and hold on, in which case they can use the Mini Handlebar as a 'sleep roll' ( example, aged 2½).

Bobike Maxi City - with Dummy BOBIKE MAXI CITY and TOUR seats, introduced in 2010, have an improved harness, all-round double skin construction and a revised aesthetic.

The new harness releases from the top, so it doesn't need to be lifted over the child's head and helmet, and plugs into the back of the seat at a number of heights, to fit for different sized children.
The City seat is the lighter of the two, and is suitable for shorter journeys (due to the lack of upper body support).

Bobike Maxi Tour - with Dummy The tour is heavier, having a shield surrounding the back of the child's head, to allow resting on longer trips. The back of the Tour seat can be raised and lowered so that the shield and harness are at the correct height.

A built-in rear light is standard on the Tour, and an option on the City seat. Both seats had a 3-point bracket from 2010 to 2012, and a single point bracket which performs the function a a rear rack from 2013, allowing rack mounted seats to be mounted to it.

The distance between the leg supports is 170mm 20mm below the level of the seat. The leg supports are slighly flayed and can be bent a bit without straining them, so the Bobike City and Tour should be usable with carrier widths up to 180mm.


Bobike Maxi City - Isis Grey Bobike Maxi City - Sky Bobike Maxi City - Sprinkles

BOBIKE MAXI CITY

* Rear mounted seat for children weighing between 9 and 22kg (approximately 9 months to 6 years)
* 3-point padded harness with reflective strip. The harness plugs into the back of the seat at 5 different heights (25 to 39cm) to adjust for the child's growth, and unplugs to fall forwards. The harness does not need to be lifted over the child's head.
* Recess for helmet in the back of the seat, at an internal height of 39cm
* Reflective strip at the back of the seat
* Height adjustable footrests and straps
* Meets EU safety requirements and is approved according to the EN 14344 safety norm
* Bobike Maxi City/Tour mounting bracket included
* Boxed weight 6.5kg (seat and bracket ~6kg) Bobike Maxi City - Harness Connection

The Bobike Maxi City is slightly lighter than the Maxi Tour and does not have the telescopic back or head shroud. It is intended for shorter journies. The main features of the seat are its sturdy double skin construction and the harness which is opened and closed at shoulder level, so it doesn't need to be lifted over the child's head.

From 2010 to 2011 the seat mounted on to a three point bracket (one that attaches to the bicycle frame at three points: the seat tube and both seat stays). From 2012 a rear carrier mounted version became available, which has a mounting plate that is bolted to the bike's rear carrier. For bikes that don't have a suitable rear carrier, two brackets are available: a single point bracket is available which attaches to the seat tube, and a version of the three point bracket .

We have priced the 3-point mounted version at £90, the rack mounted version at £95 and the rack mounted version with the 1-point mounting bracket at £125. We offer all colours as rack or three point mounted by swapping the brackets around. The following colours come from the manufacturer with the 3-point bracket and will have two holes drilled inside the storage box to convert them to rack mounted: Isis Grey, Multi Stripe, Retro Brown, Sprinkles, Sky, Travel Black.

Suitable for bicycles with wheel size 26 to 28 inches. Not suitable for bicycles with a carbon frame, suspension (including frame suspension) or an auxillary motor (e.g. electric bikes).
