Hi, I'm a new member with a 3yr old boy and an old Trek 800 I'd like to convert into a kid transporter.
Not really keen on the idea of my wild child being out of eyesight behind me in a trailer or rear seat.
noticed on E-bay someone is now selling front mounted seats and sidecars for bicycles.
sidecar would be nice to haul lots of stuff and keep everything dry.
but would take up lots of space on the road/trail.
Also being a motorcyclist,I know sidecars handle very differently than a 2wheeler,
and can be quite dangerous.
I'm thinking front mounted child seats might cause a few maneuverability issues also.
Can my kid grab the handlebars?
How will it affect MY reach to the bars?
Anyone have experience with both/either of these?
One better than the other?
if this topics been brought up 50,000 times before......Sorry.
