The position of the front bike seat with your child between you and the handlebars (in front of your chest) can make some of the skills of riding a little more challenging…like. mounting, stopping, balance and your reach around to the handlebars
The more space you have between you and the handlebar the easier these bike skills will be. This can be achieved If you ride in an upright position or if you are tall and ride a medium or large frame
If you do not have a lot of space between you and the handlebars… that is you ride in a forward lean position or you have a small bike frame, then a mid mount child bike seat may not be the right solution for you.
