I saw a site that talked about a rough ride.
I've seen lots of cyclists enjoy cycling with their child in a carseat in a trailer in a manner to reduce chances of risk. Here in other parts of the world people cycle with much younger children with success, but its about a persons comfort level I'm sure.
Sorry but a car seat, especially an INFANT carrier car seat, strapped to a trailer sounds very dangerous - for the simple fact that the carrier/seat wasn't designed to be attached to a bike trailer, nor was the trailer designed to have a child/infant seat strapped to it.
I think the usual minimum age for a kid trailer is 12 months old or something like that. The kid at least has to be able to hold his head up.
+1 all kinds of opinions about this one. as for me and my family, the kids think bicycles are normal (since 4 months), and cry every time they have to get into the car instead of on a bicycle. who can blame them?
also: great pix of the kid Youaint...

How did my night rider special morph into the family wagon? And my daughter's mobile playpen
I always get a kick out of seeing some one with a bike that cost more than my car using it to haul a bb trailer!

I notice that not many folk are using the carrier type kids seat, I bought one last week and took Mrs just under 2 for a ride on Saturday, Seems fine to me, Although the wife was not impressed when I went around the bridge and did a river crossing. (well, stream)
Whats the advantage of the trailer? Seems like hard work to tow to me.
