A week ago, I typed “iBert” into the search box on Craigslist, along with a few other front bicycle seat names, not really expecting to find anything. Imagine my surprise when I found a recently listed iBert seat — for five dollars!
Cautiously excited (since there was no picture with the posting), I contacted the owner with a few questions. She confirmed that it was in good shape and said she would just give it to me, so we set up a time to meet. Wednesday night, Sir and I arrived home the proud owners of a lime green front bike seat!
The only hold up to using it? We still need to get him a helmet. I bought a basic toddler helmet at Target a few weeks ago, but with a starting head circumference of around 19 inches, it was still slightly too big.
There are toddler helmets that have a range that includes head circumferences down to 18 or so inches — we just need to get one. We should have that resolved this week, but not using our new toy over the weekend was hard.
I installed the seat on Sunday afternoon and practiced getting Gabriel in and out. I resisted the temptation to go for a spin around the block.
Come back next week for the iBert test ride report.
