The Copilot Limo features a fold-down grab bar, three-point harness and reclining backrest. Included is a Blackburn EX-1 tubular aluminum rack with a quick-release mounting system.

Pros

The padding in the seat was appreciated, especially near the head area for when my two-year-old daughter fell asleep. The high headrest made me feel confident that her head was well-protected. My daugher enjoyed the colorfulness of the seat.

Cons

It was my first time riding with a child seat on the back of my bike, so the extra weight of the seat took some getting used to. It was also tricky at first to get my toddler in and out of the seat, which became easier with a bit of practice. I found the handlebar that comes over the top was fun for my daughter, but it also often bumped into her helmet as I pulled it over. It is a bit complex to take seat on and off, and I wish that I could still put saddlebags on the rear rack.

Ideal Rider

Good for short trips around town.

Overall

It was a nice seat and I loved having it on my bike because my daughter had so much fun riding in it! For it to be a great seat, it should accommodate a pannier on the rear rack.
