How to get a bike seat for a baby car seat
Parents in the US and Europe are struggling to get their babies’ new seat for their bikes.
Here are the basics.
What is a bike car seat?
A bike car is a seat that’s fitted to a bicycle to allow the child to ride on the back, while holding a baby in the back.
In the US, parents have to buy the seat for themselves.
Here’s how you can get one.

But the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is pushing back against some bike seat safety claims.
Bike seats can be dangerous if they’re not properly fitted, and many manufacturers say the seats are not safe for kids under 2.
In recent years, there have been some concerns that manufacturers have made misleading claims about how safe they’re for kids.
“There’s a lot of confusion,” said Michelle Cote, the director of the Bicycle Safety Campaign at the American Academy of Pediatrics.
“The only thing that is really clear is that if the seat isn’t fit properly, you can’t safely ride in it.”
For some parents, the issue is more complicated.
The FDA is also looking into whether some manufacturers have a conflict of interest, as they sell a product and are part of the industry that promotes bike safety.
Bicyclist deaths have skyrocketed in recent years in the United States.
In 2015, the number of bike-related fatalities in the country surpassed 1 million.
More and more parents are turning to the internet for help.
Bicycling Safety Alliance (BSA) founder and CEO Mark Pacheco, said the safety of parents is more important than ever.
“I’m a big believer in safety and I’ve been very involved in cycling safety, and that’s why I decided to go after bike seats,” he said.
“So I’ve got a great group of people working together who are working on it.”BSA has been fighting to put parents on the right track in the industry, helping to raise awareness of bicycle safety and offering tips on how to safely ride a bike in the UK.
The BSA’s research has shown that bike seat manufacturers are often involved in marketing campaigns that may promote their products.
“They’re advertising their products, and it’s a big part of how they make money,” said Pachecom.
“And we’re a consumer advocacy organisation, and so we need to be able to look at it from that perspective.”
While BSA is not working directly with the manufacturers of bikes, PacheCom said there are many more manufacturers that are working to promote safer and more affordable bike safety products.BSA said it was working with the bike industry and manufacturers to ensure that the industry’s efforts are aligned with BSA standards.
But it is also concerned that some manufacturers are pushing a more aggressive agenda.
Bikes have been redesigned, the seat cushions are now thicker and the seat belt no longer has to be removed.
“Some manufacturers are doing things that are really dangerous, and I don’t want to put my child at risk,” said Cote.
“We need to know where those people are coming from.”
Cote believes there is a strong link between bike safety and the US safety standards, so BSA and its supporters are campaigning for more safety standards across the US.
The US has more than 3.5 million bike commuters, and its seat-belt laws have proven to be a model for other countries.
In 2016, more than 400,000 US children under the age of 2 died in car crashes.
Bicycle safety in the U.S. has been increasing in recent months.
In April, the state of Florida voted to make it a child-proof bike seat.
And on June 4, the federal government voted to protect people with disabilities from having their children ride in cars.
The Bicycle Industry Association (BIA) says that while there is no definitive way to test for bicycle safety in children, BIA does have data showing a significant increase in bike safety for kids in recent decades.
“Every year, we see an increase in safety improvements, and we’re seeing an increase among children in our industry,” said Brian Schaffner, CEO of BIA.
“Bicycles are the safest mode of transportation on earth, and our industry is proud to support and work with the federal, state and local governments that make it happen.”
