Extra note! Different specifications apply to bicycles without a luggage carrier or bicycles with a special MIK HD carrier.
Your bike is suitable for the Urban Iki rear seat if the luggage carrier:
1. Is suitable to carry 25 kilos
This is a luggage carrier that meets the European safety standard EN14872. Most bicycles that meet this requirement have a sign or mention of this safety standard on the luggage carrier itself. Is it not listed? You can often find a lot of information about the luggage carrier of your bicycle online.
2. Is between 120 and 175 mm wide
This is the width that is required to mount the standard mounting frame on your luggage carrier. You can assemble it in just a few steps, this assembly video will help you on your way. Is your luggage carrier too small? Then there is a good chance that it cannot carry the required 25 kilos. The Urban Iki rear seat with frame mounting is then a better option for you.
You have an e-bike?
Do you have a mid-engine or is the battery of your e-bike located beneath your luggage carrier? Then won’t find any problems when mounting the rear seat. Only when your battery is on the left or right side of your bike, the leg parts will not fit.
My luggage carrier has a different shape?
It is no problem if your luggage carrier is oval-shaped, for example. The legs of the mounting frame can be adjusted to the shape of your luggage carrier.
