" ...  When our first child was able to hold his head up by himself, he got to go on his first bike ride. ... This seat mounted up easily, it comes off quickly, and the little guy loves to ride with me. ... The Shotgun seat puts him right up front where the action is and I can keep him centered with my arms. ... Our old front-mount seat required a bar to be installed between the seat and the head tube.  ...  "
