    Hi,

    Having recently brought a Pendleton Brooke hybrid bike for the missus, it's now become apparent that fitting a child seat to it is going to be a problem (and that Vicky P is obviously not a parent ;) ). The steerer tube is too short to mount the front mounting ones such as the BoBike and the downtube being sloped makes attaching the weeride style ones difficult too. Rear mounted ones are apparently a problem (according to the q+a section on the halford site) with pannier rack mounting being an issue due to them tilting forward. The only option I seem to have currently is a trailer which the missus isnt keen on.

    Has anyone got a Pendleton Brooke and knows of a child seat that actually fits?

    Cheers

    Mark

    Hi Mark,
    Did you find a seat to fit in the end? I am having exactly the same problem, tried a Weeride and a rear seat with no joy. Very frustrating!

    Thanks, Carrie

    Nope, ended up fitting a pannier and a seat to attach to that, which seems to be fine.

    Hi,

    I'm now having the exact same issue. I have a Pendleton Brooke 16" frame and looking to fit a child seat with pannier, but I have no idea how to go about it. Mark what pannier did you get? And which child seat? Thank you in advance.
