Recommendation for 3 speed cruiser with hand breaks? (besides Townie)

I had my heart set on the Townie, but alas it won't fit my Co pilot seat. I'm trying to find a similar bike that will fit my child seat with Blackburn rear rack. Ideally I want a 3 speed (internal) aluminum frame with hand breaks... oh and I love the cruiser look and flat foot technology...any suggestions??

Thanks!!!!

Huh? I can fit a child seat to a Townie with a pair of extensions for the bracket.
Not a Townie, but a similar bike, Trek Sole Ride, with a Topeak Babysitter:

The salesgirl showed me the Trek actually saying I could mount a rear rack to that (she did not say anything about extensions of course!).

Anyone know about the Electra working with extensions? The salesgirl made it sound impossible to do with a Townie...

Thanks!
