Safety Instructions

  • Buddyrider is NOT recommended to be mounted on a carbon fiber seat pole. Please replace it with a aluminum or steel seat post.
  • Prior to using Buddyrider, check the seat is secure to the bicycle and no parts or screws are cracked, loose, missing, or broken.
  • Due to the size and weight associated with transporting a pet on a bicycle, extreme care must be taken at all times. The rider may be required to make quick corrective action when the pet moves its weight.
  • Care should be taken when placing your pet into the seat, and also when removing them. This should be done in a safe place away from distractions such as other pets and traffic.
  • Initial rides should be brief, over smooth ground, in a safe location and away from all distractions.
  • Increase the duration only when both rider and pet become accustomed and confidant.
  • Never leave a pet unattended in this seat. Due to the higher center of gravity, a bicycle may fall over if parked on its stand or without proper support.
  • Do not allow your pet to become a distraction when riding. Keep your focus on the safe operation of your bicycle, the rules of the road, the environment around you and other cyclists, pedestrians and vehicular traffic.
