Hello I'm Shane Jackson with Evolution Bike Company. We have been in business for about three years. I have about 20 years experience in cycling. Today we're going to talk about child carriers. Basically there are several different child carriers that are out there. You have ones that attach to the rear derailleur. It is like a trailer and you put your kids in the back and you can haul them down around town in a separate trailer. For infants mostly mothers, fathers like to have a child safety seat that attaches to the rear of the bike. There is little mounts on the very back of the frame. These mounts is where you would attach the carrier of any type. Most all carriers come with hardware already in them. You attach them here and the child safety seat sits right over the back wheel, right behind the front seat of the mother or father and has leg restraints, waist restraints and like a five point harness. Different child safety seats depends on the age of your kid, whether he is an infant or four or five months or a year old. Anything over a year we recommend trailers and trailers are very safe because if you wreck the trailer stays upright instead of your child being on the back.
