When and how long can my child use the Yepp mini front child bicycle seat?
Your child can use the Yepp mini once they are able to sit up, and keep their neck up by them selves. Please see our product outline for weight guidance.
What are the different weight requirements for the Yepp maxi, Yepp maxi easyfit, and Yepp mini?
The weight limit for the Yepp mini is 33lbs. While the Yepp maxi standard limit is 48 lbs. For the Yepp maxi easyfit it depends on the weight capacity of the rear rack present on your bike. We recommend only rear racks that are EN approved and that can hold a weight of at least 48lbs, to obtain this information please inquire with your bike manufacturer.
Will the Yepp maxi standard fit my bike?
The Yepp maxi standard fits 95% of the bikes. The Yepp maxi standard should only be attached to bicycles with a frame size of 21 in. or larger; the seat post adapter fits seat tubes between 1.1 - 1.8 in. (28 - 45mm) in diameter. Make sure the seat tube is made of a sturdy material. Carbon frames or lightweight aluminum frames are not compatible with our Yepp products.
Will the Yepp mini fit my bike?
The Yepp mini can be attached to steel handlebar stems from at least 20 to 28 mm/ o.8 to 1.1 inches in diameter using the fittings supplied standard with the Yepp mini. If your bike doesn’t have this quill type stem we have an A head or threadless adapter available. It suits stems with a diameter of maximum 3 inches. Note that you still require a steel front fork in order to carry the weight!
Is the Yepp seat safe to put on my bike?
The Yepp children seats that we carry are extremely safe and meet stringent European safety requirements and ASTM standards. The question in safety comes down to the bike: Is your bike suited to carry the extra weight!
In case of doubt, inquire with the manufacturer of your bike!
What is the difference between a Yepp maxi standard and a Yepp maxi easyfit?
The Yepp maxi standard makes use of a seat tube adapter and hence attaches to the seat tube of your bike. It fits 95% of the American bikes.
The Yepp maxi easyfit attaches only to a sturdy rear rack that should already be present on your bike. It’s the rack that holds the weight, so you need to find out if your bike rack can hold this weight. In addition you might need the adapter that has the window that fits the Yepp maxi easyfit. In Holland where the seats are designed many bikes have a sturdy rear rack and already come with this window, hence the name easyfit, since it just clicks in. The bike Dutch bike brand Gazelle available in the USA and Canada has these models available too.
