    Rear seat recommendation

    I'm looking for a rear seat for carrying my daughter on short errands, usually under 3 miles. The difficulty I'm having is that of the seats I've seen locally are for tiny kids. My kid is tall and light, ~45 inches and maybe 40 lbs all bundled up. Something like the Bobike Junior looks ideal, except she's 10 lbs too light, and it doesn't have anything to keep feet away from spokes. The Bb Maxi would work weightwise, but I'm not sure about height. It also doesn't fold down like the Junior. Online, the thing that looks closest to what I would like is an old Schwinn folding child carrier, with armrests.

    Any suggestions?

    I have Bobike Maxi and for 45 inches tall kid the straps will most likely be too short, but it would work otherwise. But it's only rated to 55 lbs, so I think Junior is a better fit. From their web page Junior have the same foot guard plates as Maxi: http://www.bobike.nl/products/en/voe...menu=m14____m2

    Ah, I hadn't seen the foot plates. Seems like the Junior is the best choice, but maybe I'll wait until spring when she's a little closer to the lower weight limit. I was hoping someone would have a less expensive alternative that somehow hadn't been picked up by Google
