The price is great compared to the next best rated the thudbuster at well over $100.
It is going to be used on an upright/cruiser style mountain ebike. I will let you know.
It may have sideways movement in addition to up and down movement, or may tip the seat forwards or backwards, or something else that is not obvious until you use it.

330 lb is 150 kg. I am still under that.

I will wait to see what you have to say after using it.

Having suspension on the seat is a good idea if it works well.

I like to buy a large seat. It is much more comfortable when riding long distances, and you don't need padded pants. Some bike shops in Cambodia have them.

Some of the biking groups I belong to give that suspension great reviews, no mention of side to side movement. The angle of the seat is adjustable. I bought this seat for my bike and I love it it is a full 12 inches wide and 12 inches long with excellent gel foam, coil springs and cushy webbing

That seat is really good for riding long distances.

I have a seat a little smaller, I got second hand.

500m Altitude yesterday ( up Bokor) thats where the Gaurdian of the Forrest is. If you dont know its a BIG rock that looks like a face. It might have been carved that I dont know.
Both my phone apps & gopro gave different altitudes but I snapped a photo of the cycle and later looking at thats location on google maps,set to terrain mode so you can see contour lines, 500m is just about where I stopped close enough anyway. I was going to head up more but a strong wind started blowing downhill so I decided that was enough for this week!

Coming downhill was fun

I suggest you start a new topic, with a descriptive heading, like: Bike for sale with child carrier. People looking to buy a bike probably wont look at this topic. But with for sale in the heading, many more people should see it. I think this bike will be highly desirable for mothers with children.

Do you mean in the internet?

Which biking forums would you recommend as being the best?

Yes on the internet.
Read all of them that you can find the more opinions the better informed you will be IMHO

That. looks like my style and this one : explorer » Mon Nov 11, 2019 8:07 pm
“This is my preference. I normally stay in smaller towns, and cycle to and around the villages, sometimes on dirt tracks, sometimes through mud.”

It still makes me wonder why boys buy ‘ boys bikes ‘ with that bar under the seat to rack your balls on.
Ever since i did that once , i been buying myself ‘ girls bikes ‘ and no problem ...

After seeing this one i want one now .. don’t know what’s available up here in bumfuck inactive post k.thom
any suggestions ? Or maybe I can find and flag down a Mormon 🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️🤷🏽‍♂️

Also looking for a pet shop here for some cat toys ... i got no response from that qwestion here either .... yet

NOTE:
i bet the bike above is very heavy and only good for short trips less than 2 kms to the store an back

Putting ur kid up front is not nearly a safe as a kids seat that would go behind ur seat
