    Bringing your child along for the ride has never been easier. They get to experience the ride just like you, holding the handle bars, getting a feel for how the bike moves, leans, and turns.

    SHARE EXPERIENCES & MAKE MEMORIES

    With your child positioned in front of you they’re in a perfect position to have a conversation with, point out things you see along the way (like squirrels!) and allow them to lead the ride by picking where you’ll go on your ride today!

    NO-TOUCH MOUNTING (AND E-BIKE FRIENDLY)

    At the front, the Mac Ride clamps to a pre-installed spacer that is fitted on your steerer tube. The rear clamp mounts to your seat post. This contactless frame mounting system is ideal when used on carbon bike frames or e-bikes with large down tubes (adapter required)

    U-SHAPED SADDLE

    Mac Ride’s seat is U-shaped, so your child sits naturally at the bottom of the saddle’s “scoop”. The saddle has a special gel coating for comfort and to prevent your child from sliding.

    GROWS WITH YOUR CHILD

    Mac Ride is fully adjustable to grow with your child and allow you to keep riding together for years to come. The saddle, stirrups, and footstraps are all adjustable to quickly adapt to your growing child with multiple fit positions.

    HIGHLY COMPATIBLE

    The Mac Ride bar telescopes to fit all bike sizes, XS to XXL. The front mount can be made compatible with steerer tubes beyond the standard size by purchasing a selection of optional spacers.

  • MAC RIDE BIKE FIT COMPATIBILITY CHECK

    The Mac Ride Child Bike Seat is compatible with many kinds of bike frames using cycling industry standardized components. There are a few exceptions, like e-bikes and city cruisers or hybrids that will require adapters. Here’s a quick guide to determining your bike compatibility. If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact a Bambino Gear Expert to help you!

    STEERER TUBE CHECK

    Confirm your steerer tube diameter measurement is the 1 ⅛” is standard* and has an existing 10mm spacer under the stem with 5mm clearance above and below. Make note if your stem is 50mm or shorter with a drop that might affect clearance. Click here for a short video on installing the headset spacer.

    *If your steerer tube is ⅞”, 1”, or 1 ¼” you will need an adapter. If you have a Trek with Knock Block or Scott with Syncros you will need an adapter. 1 ½” steerer tubes are not compatible with the Mac Ride.

    FRAME CHECK

    Check the toptube and downtube width measurements. Mac Ride fits on frames that are 68mm or less in width without an added spacer adapter.

    If your frame size is larger than 68mm width then you will need the e-bike adapter. This comes in Wide (102 mm) and Extra Wide (122 mm).

    SEAT POST CHECK

    Mac Ride works with dropper posts and standard seat posts. When using a dropper it must be mounted to the lower part of the seat post that inserts into your bike frame, above the seat post clamp on the frame.

    All you need is 20mm of exposed seatpost to clear any hardware on a dropper post. (Never attach your Mac Ride to the “dropper” stanchion of the seatpost)

    Setting up your Mac Ride once it arrives is an easy process! If you have any questions about fit or assembly please contact a Bambino Gear Expert and we’ll be happy to help!

    What if my bike requires an adapter?
    Mountain bike, road bike, gravel bike, beach cruiser, e-bike, steel classic, micro folder, you name it, if it's a bike the Mac Ride will fit it! Since bikes come in all shapes and sizes they sometimes require special adapters or spacers. If you're not sure which is the correct adapter for your bike, please don't hesitate contacting a Bambino Gear Expert to assist you.
    • Common sizes include 1 1/8" (2 are included with the seat), 1 1/4", 1" or 7/8" Quill stem adapters, and the Trek Knock Block spacer.
    How do I know if my child is ready for a bike seat?
    Each child develops at their own pace, so we like to use other developmental markers to guide parents to answer the question, “when can you ride with your child on a bike?”
    • #1 rule - if your child is too small for a helmet, then you have to wait till they are bigger. No helmet = no go in our book. Same goes for hand strength, they need to be strong enough to hold the handlebars and support themselves.
    • Mac Ride is recommended for riders ages 2-5 and up to 60lbs. There are some exceptions of children 18-20 months old that are strong enough to and ready to ride the Mac Ride. Just make sure they are able to listen and communicate with you as there are times you need to instruct them to “hold on tight” when riding trails.
    • Inseam measurements range from 23cm at the smallest setting up to 32cm for the largest setting. If your child’s inseam measurement is less than 23cm you’ll have to wait a little longer.
    What’s your warranty/return policy?
    The Mac Ride Child Bike Seat is covered by a 2 Year Warranty against manufacturer or material defects. Please contact Bambino Bikes directly if you have any questions.
