They seem similar and/or equivalent. Is there any big negative for either one or just I just buy whichever is more convenient? This is for a 1 1/2 yr old, to mount on a Giant Cypress DX hybrid. I'll be leaving the rack on the bike for longer & errand rides, and both seem to have quick release/mount for the seat on the rack.

Both are about equal in all regards. Best to buy on price between those two models.

update: Bike Nashbar had the Topeak seat plus rack for $89 on sale, minus 20% holiday coupon, so only $72 before shipping. I got it last week and did the rack install. I also got some Townie panniers for shopping. Too bad it will probably be March-April before the weather is nice enough to try with the kid in back.

As mentioned above, they are both quality child seats. I have used both in our shop and had no complaints with either one. Another one to consider is the Giant Progeny http://www.giant-bicycles.com/en-US/partsaccessories/familycycling/211/26908/ It is one of the easiest seats to take on & off and comes with 2 seat liners (boy & girl). The drawback is that it's a little heavier than the others.
Best of luck!
