Stephen Janes replied to Gus K's discussion Jan Gehl - 5 factors for a liveable city
"Yes, thats I do as well to ensure my safety. These West Tce intersections are just demostrations of how the white lines don't work in these situations and need further engineering to create a liveable city and encourage more riders."

Front mounted child seats

I'm looking at the choice of front mounted childs seats, my granddaughter turns one soon and its time to get her on a bike. I really like the concept of being close to the child offered by these seats.There seems to be three main options, the wee rider, ibert and Bo Bike Mini.The wee rider seems a bit far back causing the rider to ride with legs bent outwards, the clearance seems better on the others.Has anyone had any experiences with these type of seats or advice?See More
