Will Buddyrider® fit my bike?

Will Buddyrider® fit my bike?

The Buddyrider® bicycle pet seat is suitable for most bicycle styles, however there are some fitting requirements. To help you determine if the Buddyrider® is likely to fit, please measure your bike as per the instructions below and take note of the information regarding seat posts and step through bikes.

If it doesn't fit - not to worry return within 60 days.

  • Seat post must be between 2.5cm and 3.17cm (1” and 1 1/4”) in diameter .

  • At least 4.45cm (1 3/4”) of seat post must be revealed to attach the Buddyrider®.

  • There must be 48.5cm (19”) or more between the seat post and the handlebar post.

  • 10.16cm (4") of clearance is required so the handlebar does not hit the Buddyrider®. (Note that the image is shown with the Buddyrider® position at its furthest point back from the handlebars. The exact position on your bike may vary.

  • Have a step-through (or ‘ladies’) bike?

    Note that your Buddyrider® will mean you need to mount and dismount the bike ‘gentleman-style’. Make sure you can touch the ground while seated.

  • Have a suspension seat post?

    You’ll need to replace your suspension seat post with a rigid seat post so that the Buddyrider® is mounted high enough both for fit and your comfort. They are available at most bike stores.

  • Have a carbon fibre or titanium seat post?

    To prevent damage, you’ll need to replace your carbon fibre or titanium seat posts with an aluminum or steel seat post.
