    topeak compatibility

    Was wondering if anybody has ever had any trouble with compatibility between the topeak baby seats and other mtx stuff. I want to buy a baby seat and rack, but have a exp model trunk bag that someone gave me. Will the trunk bag work on the rack for the baby seat. I have read on other sites where this is sometimes a problem, but was wondering if anyone had any first hand experience. I commute and to get a rack that will work for both applications. Thanks.
    I like fat tires and I cannot lie...

    I've used a Babysitter rack with a trunk bag before without any problems, but it wasn't a Topeak bag. If your bag has velcro straps, it should work.
    Bikes use brakes to stop.

    If your bike has breaks, don't ride it.

    Topeak recently revamped their baby seats. IIRC, the 2008 models did NOT have the MTX designation on them. Now, Topeak claimes specific compatibility.

    PS - I don't own one, I just looked at LOT's of options before we settled on a Burley Tiger trailer.
