Read instructions carefully before placing a pet in this seat. Failure to follow these instructions could result in serious injury. By attaching the Buddyrider pet seat to a bicycle you are acknowledging that you have read and understand the warnings and instructions. Please note that there are the inherent dangers that may be associated with transporting a pet on a bicycle just as there are to you when riding a bicycle and in no way is Buddy Ventures International Ltd. responsible if injury does occur. Only experienced adult cyclists, who are very confident in their abilities as a rider should transport a pet using this seat. The Buddyrider is intended for pleasure riding only, if you decide to partake in extreme cycling with your buddy on board you run a greater risk of injury.
You should check that screws and bolts are tight and secure before each ride.
DO NOT MOUNT TO CARBON FIBER SEAT POST.
If you have a carbon fiber seat post you must replace it with an aluminum or steel seat post.
Just like a seat belt on a child car seat, this harness is designed to limit unnecessary movement so your pet remains in a safe position to enjoy the ride.
Prior to using, check the seat is secure to the bicycle and no parts 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.
