Will it fit your bike?
The Frame Mount ( no carrier required) Rear Bike Seat cannot be mounted to Carbon Frames. It is suitable for your bike if it meets the following criteria.
Attachment to Bike
1. You require at least 12.5cm (125mm) of clear space to clamp the mounting bracket/adaptor to the seat post tube of your bike. Ideally close to the middle of the tube. No protrusions, nothing that would obstruct the clamp connecting to your bike.
12.5 cm of clear space. No protrusion on the frame…close to the middle of the frame.

Frame and Wheel Size
The child seat needs to comfortably clear the rear wheel of your bike…a minimum of 4cm.
This can be achieved by
1.Frame size of more than 51cm.
Measure from the top of your seat post tube down to the middle of your crank position. Does it measure more than 51cm if yes then it is compatible
2.Wheel size. To give you clearance over your rear wheel the bike needs to have 26 or 27.5 inch wheels. 29 inch wheels are often incompatible though if you have a large size bike frame you may be able to acheive the 4cm clearance over the rear wheel.
Measure from the top of your seat post tube to the middle of your crank
At least 4cm clearance above your rear wheel
