14 Jul 2019
Hi, the wheels are quick release, overall frame and fork length 175cm. Thanks 16/07/2019
can this go with a traditional child seat
02 Feb 2019
I have 2 children, 1 is almost 5 and I think can ride stoner on this.
The other is almost 2, and I would like to put her child seat on the rear pennies rack, so that I can go out with both children.
Is this possible?
That is - Tom
Hi there,

We have seen this done before, you may need to change the pannier rack, this will depend on the childs weight / the seat fitting. That is really as much information we could give without a test fit / ride.

Thanks - 04/02/19
