New Specification for Front-Mounted Bicycle Child Carriers - [12kg - 27kg]

1. Scope

This specification covers child carriers that position the child ahead of the rider and behind the handlebar of a bicycle. These carriers transport children with a minimum weight of 12 kg (26.5lb ) and a maximum weight of 27kg (60 lb).


Bicycle; child carrier; front mount; foot rest


Currently there are industry standards for rear-mounted carriers. However, none exist for front-mounted carriers. This standard is going to fill the gap.

The title and scope are in draft form and are under development within this ASTM Committee.
